One reason the arguably BS moments in DS1 don't bother me that much is because there usually is a way to counter them in some way. Be it using Greatshields, the Ring of Fog, range attacks, Fall Control or something else, subsequent playthroughs are far more enjoyable because there are ways in the game to bypass almost all the BS moments I came across the first time.

With that said, I can definitely see where the TC is coming from. Moments like these can be pure frustration for a new player that goes in without prior knowledge. Still love the game. Even if it is considered "cheesing", I like having the option to filter out the crap from the good. Really hated not having the Ring of Fog in DS2.

If you look up 'artificial difficulty' you'll find the Agility and Adaptability stats from Dark Souls 2.

Didn't read the thread, but anyone who thinks 1 is better than 2 or 3 is a neanderthal cuck.

Wasn't dark souls patched to make it easier? IIRC enemy agro range was reduced quite a bit and a few other changes too.

And the fan boys come storming in

"It never happened to me because I'm so smart I saw the burning bridge so I knew to sprint to the stairs that goes under the bridge"

Sad ds fan boys in a nutshell


It's true, I got hit once by fire on my first playthough. Then baited the attack and ran to safety. Easy, well easy for most, not you.
