1. Does the need to farm souls to finish the game meanthe game is badly designed?
2. If you have to farm souls then why would you bother wasting so much time on such a mundane activity when you can just duplicate souls using the nexus duplcate glitch? Both activiites are boring and suck the fun out of the game and both go against the spirit of the game, the only difference is the glitch is a hell of a lot quicker than farming.
I'm sure there are some people who can beat the game without farming, but for the majority of people hours of gringing up the levels is necessary so for me bad game design?
