Honestly, after watching my best friend spend hundreds of hours on dark souls 1/2/3 and bloodborne, 80% of those hours cursing like an irish sailor. I can confidently say that the game is quite literally designed by and for sadists. That is the only logical conclusion. Nothing, NOTHING about it looked fun. It literally came across to me as the BDSM of gaming.

Dark Souls, to me, is just like the Emperor's New Clothes.I played Demon's Souls on my PS3 - based on a LOT of warm praise around the web. What I found was a game full of tedium and grind - where you fight NPC patterns until you clap yourself on the back for learning them.I appreciate the combat system - and I think the stats are well implemented. But the story is bullshit, the lack of a proper coop mode in an action RPG is painful, the lack of proper stealth and archery gameplay is sad, the respawning excessive and the boss fights gimmicky and typically over-the-top JRPG stuff.I guess if you really think learning a simplistic AI pattern is a feat worthy of note - it's something.

Maybe it would behoove you to take a small break from MMOs and try some of the amazing single player RPGs and other games available. I did this a couple years ago for about 6 months or so and when I came back to my mmo of choice I felt refreshed and excited to play another mmo. Your mileage might vary, but I imagine it wouldn't hurt to at least try.
Uruketo said:I would check out Wurm Unlimited on Steam. It is a sanctioned private server system (like P99) of Wurm Online. This way you can avoid toxic jerks. There is a fair amount of private servers to look at with some great communities. Wurm was originally released in 2006 so its got old school graphics and mechanics.
