I think it might start to fuck with people, what's life with no purpose? What happens to people when they don't have to compromise for anything or work to live well? I suppose you could say our purpose could be self fulfillment. But to what end? But you did say optional, so there's that. It's an odd topic because it seems so Utopian

I suppose we'd all live like retired old folks, taking up hobbies like golf and gardening. or it'd be like star trek, where people go into careers not because of personal gain but because of the desire to better humanity. All in all, I don't think a career is required to give your life purpose.

It's refreshingly challenging, which is great, and the level design blew my mind
But I have no idea why I'm doing what I'm doing, and I really care either. There's just monsters and bosses for no reason. Can't really get invested in it. Only motivation for beating it was just to say i had done it because its reputation preceded it. I thought it would be harder

Well, I guess you're the other side of the coin, for me it's the challenge before the story really. Can't get into a game if I am just grinding through it half asleep even though it is supposed to have a great story. I somehow just can't care. An example of this would be something like FFXIII that I almost completed but it got even more boring.

Dark Souls 1: You're the "Chosen Undead" trying to link your soul to the First Flame in order to stave off the curse of undeath that's rampant through the world.
The main bosses hold the Lord Souls which are used to open the door to the Kiln of the First Flame, thus allowing you to complete your quest.
Dark Souls 2: You go to the land of Drangleic searching for a way to remove your curse of undeath, but become sidetracked by the Emerald Herald and from her subtle guidance your objective changes to becoming the next king, because you think it's a way to remove your curse. Instead, it turns out to be almost exactly what you didn't want.
The main bosses hold the Lord Souls needed to earn the title of monarch. Or something, DS2's story wasn't all that great.
Dark Souls 3: Like the first game, but you're no longer THE Chosen Undead, but you're still trying to link the flame to end the undead curse.
The main bosses are those that have gone before you and linked the First Flame, typically for ceremonial purposes since it's more or less become a "common" thing. You're just there to bring them back to their thrones to allow yourself to do what they have done, but with bigger consequences.
In all three games, you can also choose to walk away, which is basically the "evil" ending since everything only gets worse. Though in DS3 you can also choose to do... worse things. Things that REALLY fuck up the world's future.
Honestly, the games are definitely difficult, but they're in no way "the hardest games ever made" like so many people seem to think or say.

ive only played 1
and i got that, but like, every other boss with no purpose other than furthering the game but still inexplicably there. asylum demons, taurus demon, capra demon, O&S, gaping dragon, that huge red dragon blocking undead parish, etc
only ones that sorta make sense are the 4 lord souls, quelaag and the huge lava dude, sif, and bell gargoyles
and theyre really not as hard as people make it out to be
#64 - rogueshadow (05/25/2016) [-]
They aren't inexplicably there, they all have a reason for being where they were, except maybe that big red drake on the bridge and the Gaping dragon. The Asylum Demons simply kept the undead from escaping their prison, the taurus and capra demons are just demons that wandered out of Izilith (I look at them as a "look how far you've come" kind of bosses since you fight them later in Izilith and they're piss easy), O&S are protectors of the royal family kinda.
The explanations for each boss are hard to figure out. The first time I played I had no idea what I was doing. I was just moving forward and killing things because people told me to. But after reading up and drawing connections in game, or with a wiki, it all makes sense. Everything has a purpose really, it's just not obvious.
I agree that they aren't that hard. DS3 specifically was boringly easy, but since you haven't played it yet I won't talk about that.

Then you aren't paying close enough attention. Here's why you're doing what you're doing in Dark Souls 3:
The standard quest is to force all of the Lords of Cinder to return to their thrones in order to link the flame, but they don't want to die (for various reasons, Aldrich doesn't care and wants to become a god himself in order to rule the world when the Age of Deep arrives, Yhorm simply doesn't want to die and wishes to rule in the Profaned Capital, Lothric doesn't care about the world at all and is waiting for the Age of Dark to arrive, the Abyss Watchers are... trying to reach a consensus on whether they should go to their throne or not? Idk about them if I'm honest.). So since the fire hasn't been linked, the Unkindled have risen from their graves to force them to, and then become kindling for the fire themselves.
Below is the basic lore up to this point, and is missing a TON of info, all of which is found in game.
Just to clear things up a little bit, the Age of Fire is what all Dark Souls games take place in, which is also called the Age of Gods. The Age of Fire came to be after the Age of Ancients, the Age of Dragons, a time when nothing lived, and nothing died. Then, the flame appeared underground, and 3 souls were found. The soul of Death was found by Nito the Gravelord, the soul of Life by the Witch of Izalith and the Daughters of Chaos, and the soul of Light by Gwyn the First Lord. Together, along with Seath the Paledrake, they killed almost every dragon save for Seath and the ones that fled into hiding. During the war, a fourth soul was found, the Dark Soul. This soul was found by the Furtive Pygmy, who knew that the dark was not as strong as light, as the light of fire banishes dark. Knowing this, he split the soul into fragments, which became the first Humans. Thus the Dark Soul's unique property became known, it could split infinitely as the Humans reproduced, never becoming weaker as it did, only growing in strength as Humanity did.
And so the Age of Fire began, and things were pretty baller for a long time, until the fire began to fade, and so did the power of the gods. Under the Age of Fire, Humanity had grown to be strong as well, and as the fire faded Humanity was closing in power to the gods. Gwyn, fearing the might of Humanity and the coming of the Age of Dark, the Age of Humanity, ruined everything for everyone. The natural cycle was Age of Ancients leads to the Age of Fire leads to the Age of Dark, but the gods refused to surrender their power. The Witch of Izalith was asked to help in saving the Fire, and succeeded, for a moment. She and her Daughters made a new Flame, but were consumed and became the mothers of the Demon race, forever doomed to birth more and more Chaos Spawn.
Gwyn, running out of options and the flame ever fading, sacrificed himself to give the other gods and his children time to save the Age of Fire. This had an effect on Humanity that may or may not have been planned. Humans were linked to the Flame be way of the Dark Sign, becoming Undead and forever doomed to seek Humanity and kindle the First Flame. This only happened when the flame came close to fading, but otherwise life went on as normal for everyone.
The new lore for Dark Souls 3 is still being pieced together, an a lot of it is still VERY new and doesn't quite fit in to the existing lore. The community needs time to make everything make sense, plus the inevitable DLC for the third game that's coming out will most certainly complicate things.

thats what i'm wondering, i was the guy who was against playing the game because i thought it was over-hyped and over rated. and it wouldnt be hard if you just learned enemy attacks and movement, but it is a hard game and even if you do learn movement and attacks you still cant make a misstake or your screwed, but its probably one of the best games ive ever played and playing with friends is amazing.

Oh my God, playing this game with friends gave me some of the most memorable experiences I've ever had.
My three friends and I bought a PS4 and Dark Souls 3 to play coop while communicating through a group call and it was absolutely hysterical watching all of us struggle through the game.
Exploring the maps in groups with no direction or guidance also made every last detail of the game so much more interesting.
