Almost immediately after the credits rolled, I started to reflect on my experience. I honestly didn't think I had it in me, being my first Souls game and all.
As much as it is gratifying to have beaten arguably one of the harder games of this generation; I think my proudest moment was beating the Ruin Sentinels on my first try. I actually wanted to summon the sorcerer for this fight, but I thought I'd just give it a go by myself first. The fight really didn't start off well. I was caught off guard by the first sentinel's surprise attack. Then, a succession of attacks pushed me off the edge. Barely surviving the fall, I managed to quickly heal. But, really, I didn't think I'd survive more than few seconds, since the other two sentinels joined the fight. I must've spent two or three minutes just dodging and blocking. I didn't hit anyone -- I never even landed a hit on the first one on the platform! It was hard enough keeping the three of them in my sight, let alone try to attack. I slowly built my confidence and tried to cautiously attack every now and then, and probably after 10 to 15 minutes (or at least, that what it seemed like), I managed to kill the three of them. My nerves were practically fried and my palms were sweaty.
This was probably one of my proudest moments not just in Dark Souls 2, but probably gaming as a whole. So... what were your proudest moments in the Souls series, particularly Dark Souls 2? I actually wouldn't mind the embellished version of what happened.
