It's depressing to me that a game such as Dark Souls, which merely requires caution, patience, and actual thought to play, is considered one of the hardest games ever made in today's game market. It's certainly more challenging and punishing than most other games, and it's one of my favorite games of all time, but the treatment it gets for being "omg hardest gaem evar" is just frustrating and facetious.

I actually look forward to owning Dark Souls. (I wait till a games price drops quite a bit before getting them.)
I keep hearing that "It's so ******* hard omigawd!"
But I think people exaggerate the difficulty. I mean, the hardest game I've played was Ninja Gaiden, and I still beat that. Games like that are difficult if you just rush in (Which most modern gamers do.) But if you have a sound plan and decent understanding of attack patterns, area layouts, and equipment then it shouldn't be hard to overcome after awhile.

It's harder than Ninja Gaiden because it's less beginner-friendly and the combat is much more deliberately paced.

I still think it's a pretty difficult game.

Or maybe it's because I'm a squishy sorcerer... lol

Totally agree. Buying it I though the first ******* enemy will kill me a hundred times over.
My first death was actually when I accidentaly angered a Black Knight and he one-shot killed me.
Sure, it's challenging, but nowhere near as much as I was led to believe.

Yeah I actually beat it a week after I got it. It was basically grind for a few hours, roll, use pyromancy, win.

Well when you think about it Dark Souls is the hardest game in todays market (with the exception of Demon's Souls since it's basically the same principle) for the reasons you stated. Almost every game that comes out now-a-days holds your hand like it's an overly concerned mother, the second you make a mistake running up, covering your ears, and yelling "lalala! You did nothing wrong! Lalala!" so you barely even acknowledge you made a mistake. Dark Souls is one of the few modern games that steps back, lets you fail miserably, and then asks "now what did you learn?" when you come crawling back.

I haven't had trouble with Bell Gargoyles since my first playthrough, since I usually spend a pretty decent amount of time grinding after Taurus Demon. Once you get into the Undead Parish, you gain access to a few of the best items in the game; Havel's Ring, Elite Knight Armor, Grass Crest Shield, etc. I always get those before doing Bell Gargoyle, and because of what you have to do to get them, I'm usually a little higher level than you're supposed to be to fight the Gargoyles.
