Why do people like Dark Souls?
I hate it. it's not that it's too hard, I just think it sucks.

It kicked my ass repeatedly and I'm scared to play it again...
They made it really hard to get in to.

"I just think it sucks"
"I hate it"

Of course it's my fucking opinion, I'm the one saying it. Do I really have to label everything I say as "uhhn in my opinion"?

I honestly want to know, because I want to like this game, I like the style of it, and whatnot, I just don't know why people think this game is so great.

I know that I like it because, instead of being an endless, "press forward and x not to die" "Here is a checkpoint! move five feet, here's another checkpoint!", and lastly "here are endless tutorials on how to do the simplest things!" it actually provides a challenge through old school means.

You only get one life and if you die you have to start back at the beginning of the level (most of the time). Most games give you a plethora of lives which dampen an experience because you don't have the tension of having to be careful. But since you only get one life, and lose all of your currency when you do so, you actually have to be careful and take your time to fully understand both your enemy and some of the mechanics of the game.

Secondly, as an rpg, it does wonders. Sure RPG's such as Fallout and Elder Scrolls do a great job, but I feel that they go a little overboard, where Dark Souls brings back a simplicity to it. You only get the set of stats they offer you, no bonuses, no modifiers (except in weapon damaging effects), just you and how you decide to build your character. And thus it forces you to really focus on what kinda of character you want to build.

Lastly the visual aspect of it I just find great, it doesn't look stiff, it doesn't look grey, and it has a large variety of enviroments that are fun to explore.

I will contend though that the motivation of the game are almost non existant through conventional means such as story telling. I know for me the reason why I wanted to get through it (still haven't) is because I enjoy all that I listed above.
