@oldirtybearon: I've noticed that there are two kinds of Souls fans. The ones who just genuinely enjoy playing the game. Then there are the ones who play it (or claim to play it in a lot of cases) because it's the rad new difficult game that makes you cool if you win at it.
yeah there is definitely a snooty factor about these games, because you know being good at Souls games get you all the girls and stuff...
Personally I have nothing against them, but I have not enjoy my time with DK2 nor DK1, they not for me.
