Dark Souls is such a fascinating game.
Unfortunately, I don't have the time or patience for it. In the time it'd take me to get good at Dark Souls and beat it, I could play through four other games that I enjoy right from the beginning. I guess I miss out on a level of satisfaction that I don't get from other games, but the frustration just isn't worth it for me. It's entirely a personal problem.
I'm glad it's getting the attention it deserves, and I hope I get to watch at least one of the bomb squad stream their adventures in Dark Souls 2.
