I love Demon's Souls and I find Dark Soul to be unfair

I been playing for 10hours and it pisses me off every time I see projectile from enemy pass right though other enemy, same goes for AoE and all their weapon swings. The only "friendly fire" I seen so far from enemy is the Dragon Breath.

And how my attack get knock back when hitting wall but the enemy's attack just go right through them.

Welcome to the world of video games. You should realize, that's the way it should be... unfair. I'm glad they brought this back.

Welcome to Soul crushing. Have a nice day.

I haven't played much but, thinking about it, I can't really say I would call the game unfair at any point. There's this part where I died right in front of a Black Knight or whatever the common enemy with the huge sword and spiked helmet is called and, to retrieve my blood stains, I had to go in front of that enemy again and then run back only to get killed by it once more. I found that pretty stupid. In Demon's Souls the bloodstain appeared at a location something like 10 seconds before your death, but I think that the time interval is shorter with Dark Souls.

I have to agree entirely. I think it's taken some pretty unfair ideas to make Dark Souls harder than Demon's Souls. Example? Ghosts. They clip through everything, they can attack through it, they can do a lot of damage, they often swarm in high numbers. It's really poor design for a fair challenge. I feel they got so much praise from Demon's Souls being punishingly difficult, but fair that they decided to up the difficulty and made poor design decisions. And I've been told they were trying to encourage a challenging online co-op play, but that doesn't mean you make single player unfair... it means you just make multiple players add more to it than basically force people to play together to even stuff out. Such bs.

Im enjoying the game but Im playing the Catacombs right now and god damn its pissing me off. Non stop reviving skeletons until you kill certain enemies is annoying. I eventually killed the boss and after is an area that is pitch black where you can fall off ledges to ur death. Extremely annoying. I was walking along the ledge being careful not to fall off...out of the complete darkness walks one of those huge skeletons...he kicks me immediately (no time to react so i blocked it) which kncoks me down and takes half my health. Then he deals the killing blow before I can even stand up. Now thats not the game being hard....that's just bullshit. The game is fun but Demons Souls is still better in my mind.
