So bottom line, as long as the difficult game is designed and made well then it will have following. Making a difficult game that is poorly designed and calling it hardcore or old-school to justify poor popularity is not an excuse for a bad game.
Yes, I agree with you. The demographic to which you refer to that enjoyed Dark Souls is 'the rest of us.'

People that play angry birds and farmville (and there are a massive amount of those kinds of players) are rarely going to be found playing difficult and involved games like DS.
If I'm right but there is no wife around to acknowledge it, am I still right?
