Not at the fact that they are hard, but the fact that if you die you have to replay large sections that you found pretty easy just to get to the hard part and then possibly die again. Especially if those easy sections can span upwards of 30 minutes?
I love hard games, the later levels in Super Mario Galaxy, crown world in Super Mario 3D world, old NES games all of which were hard but didn't have you replaying 30 something minutes of easy gameplay just to possibly fail again.
I really love the artstyle, music, atmosphere and creativity of the world of Dark Souls, but I found it tough to have to replay the same sections over and over. Wish I could go back.
Anyone else in the same boat? or am I just a filthy casual gamer? XD
