Do all the people who laud the greatness of Dark and Demons Souls actually play through the whole thing?
I'm pretty sure I have finished Demon's Souls a bit more than 10 times or so and Dark Souls between 6 and 7 times now.
These games can last as long as you want by exploring, experimenting, helping other players online or whatever you wanna do really. These are one of the few games that I like wandering around just to see if I find something new.
To be honest, I just get a feeling of bandwagon jumping with these games. Were "supposed" to like them because their hardcore, and only the elite can beat them. From a non-difficulty standpoint they sound pretty awesome to me. I just wish they had a "you suck at games" setting for guys like me. Or would that defeat the point?
There is no such thing as bandwagon. Sure, at the beginning is very intriguing seeing so much people loving a game as "cruel" as this but like it was mentioned before if you stick with it and really get into it then you are gonna be surprised by how much you enjoy the game.
Though, I find it interesting how some people have said that they like the ideas behind both games but not the execution.
