I would also like to not i traded in this game for Skyrim and im much happier now but that dosnt mean i dont want to know why i was running around hells half acer getting my ass handed to me even at level 70+.

I actually liked the fact that there was little to no story in Dark Souls with the exception of trinkets of lore attached to item descriptions and vague dialogue with NPCs..... added more mystery intrigue and atmosphere to the world.

Not everything has to have some epic "on the edge of your seat" cinematic story.

Theres no story.No narrative what so ever.

The DS fanboys will always try to defend it with "the mystery is better then an actual story bullsh*t ofcourse.Complete nonsense if you ask me.

Great RPGs are mostly for thier amazing and epic storys. DS is mostly know for... its cheepness.

From what I could gather, you were basically the chosen one sent out to end that curse you and every other hollow or undead person has. I could be wrong though since I tend to worry more about survival than story in Dark Souls.

Until you actually play the game, your argument is void. Demon and Dark Souls do have in story. But that is not what it is about. It is about the gameplay, leveling up, difficulty etc. There is a reason why it got a lot of awards. It is a videogame, not a book.

i agree with this actually, RPG's really should have a story. i think its the apparent lack of a story why many people conside dark souls to be a hack and slash. and @oil_rope_bombs, gameplay is not always the most important part for everyone. case in point, Mass Effect, the first game was great, and i enjoyed the second, but the gears of war style didn't work for me, i found myself willing each battle to hurry up and end so i could get to the next dialogue option and progress the story. the first game featured a much more tactical approach to the battling and it made them more interesting at the same time has having a very interesting story. I was a massive fan of ME and mass effect 2 I enjoyed for the most part, when part 2 came out, i laughed at the people complaining about it being stripped back and thought "get over it", but after finishing the game, i realised that they were right. i am seriously worried that ME3 will be gears 3 with dialogue choices. dont get me wrong i enjoy gears, but i would take ME1 over the 3 gears games anyday. Another example, dragon age, the first games story was slow and boring but the gameplay was good. the second games story was more interesting (IMO) but the gameplay was awful after a while. i found myself in the same way with ME2, rushing the battles to get to the talking.

Insult? Where did I insult you? Calling someone "close-minded" doesn't mean it's an insult. Please show me a word in my post which makes me look as if I'm "ignorant".

AS LONG as the gameplay is good, that is what matters. In regards to Dark/Demon Souls, the gameplay is where it shines as well as the difficulty. But the Diablo guy isn't open-minded enough to give it a fair shake. I like to try all games and I judge them by playing them with an open-mind.

its not his loss, its the publishers of the games loss, he has decided its not for him, therefore he is not at a loss. if he bought the game, knowing he wont enjoy it, then he would be on a loss.

Well now we can see what type of people roam these boards... DS has an amazing story, its up to the player whether or not he wants to get involved and how much to uncover. Piecing the lore together and reading up on item descriptions, and picking up on environment clues is part of the experience that the game offers that few other games can. Its something a mature audience can really appreciate,but judging by the comments, it seems some people here like to be taken by the hand and given a straight narration with a forced plot. Demon and Dark Souls isnt that type of game... It tells the story in the same manner the gameplay unfolds.. "pick up your sword. good luck."

to be honest, i am in two minds about this game myself. when i read forums (not this one) opinion on it, the world and items etc sound intriguing.

but the punishing difficulty and supposed cheap deaths / grinding required coupled with the lack of story (a big part of the enjoyment for me in many games) puts me off.

I am willing to give it a chance at some point, probably when i finish skyrim.

I don't think they should. Like I said, a story in a game is not necessary. Games like Mario prove that. People don't consider Dark Souls to be a hack n' slash just because it doesn't have a story. DMC has a story, and it's still a hack n' slash. Instead, it's because from most videos they see the people playing the game they play it as if it were a hack n' slash (Which, mind you, is not a good way to play the game) so that's just what they assume.

But for me, it isn't. As I've said before, I consider gameplay most important. But then again, everyone has their own tastes. It's just that I don't like it when people try to define what each genre should have. It's just your opinion, not a fact. In my opinion, gameplay should be the core thing in a game, but an added story will also be great. I'm not gonna say X genre should also have a Y feature in it, otherwise the games which are called by X genre that lack Y feature aren't true X genre games.

Well, didn't really play the Mass Effect so I assume they're supposed to focus on the story. So if the first game was focused on story, while the second game was more focused on gameplay , you would prefer the story instead due to the influence of the first game so you'd wish the story to progress faster and want less gameplay. (Note: All of this is my assumption, take it with a grain of salt. :P)

Naturally, I expect the same from the Souls game. Demon's Souls was more focused on gameplay instead of story, and if Dark Souls was more focused on story then I'd rather skip most of the dialogue/cutscenes/whatever to get to the gameplay as quickly as possible.

Try out Demon's Souls, it's pretty cheap. (About $12) It'll get you ready for Dark Souls.

not so actually, the story was great in the first one, the second games story was much less intriguing, it was basically one big recruitment drive, where as the first game has you exploring the galaxy and uncovering the huge threat to our galaxy. the combat in the first one as i said seemed much slower paced and tactically driven, both were equally enjoyable. the second game was great if you liked shooters, but bad if you liked the rpg nature of the first game, the fact you were already heavily invested in the story made you want to continue. You are right though, you dont NEED a story, but some games do and with an RPG, most people would expect there to be one i guess. gameplay is the most important part, thats why some people prefer ME1 because of its RPG nature and some people prefer ME2 because its more of a shooter. both are playable, but i prefer the first one.

[QUOTE="AmazonTreeBoa"][QUOTE="LastRambo341"] Your loss :lol: hahahah!LastRambo341
Somehow skipping an RPG with no story doesn't seem like a loss to me. It seems like money saved to spend on a different game. But you go ahead and keep on thinking it is a loss to me. :roll:

It is a loss since you're not buying a great game due to a meaningless reason ;)

its not a meaningless reason. do you like EVERY single type of game? he has said for him to enjoy a game, he needs a story. what your proposing is like telling a person with no legs that if they didn't play Dance central 2 it was their loss.

[QUOTE="LastRambo341"] AS LONG as the gameplay is good, that is what matters. In regards to Dark/Demon Souls, the gameplay is where it shines as well as the difficulty. But the Diablo guy isn't open-minded enough to give it a fair shake. I like to try all games and I judge them by playing them with an open-mind.Oil_rope_bombs

Well yes the gameplay has to be good otherwise its a moovie! ;) the diablo guy is posting like an alt account but with 3500 posts so im scratching myy head... as for open mindedness yes indeed but at 60 bucks a whack i wont be buying DS... maybe when its 15... just cant take the risk of being frstrated AND poor... :)

Try out Demon's Souls, it's pretty cheap. (About $12) It'll get you ready for Dark Souls.

Now I can see doing that. Even if I ended up not liking it, so what. It is so cheap it wouldn't matter.

it isn't a meaningless reason for one. Also you are right. It is a loss......to the publisher, but not to me. Something you don't want is not a loss.
