Watch these people suffer the wrath of Dark Souls for the very first time

1 min read

I’m a sucker for punishment, but not once have I ever been remotely interested in giving the Dark Souls franchise any portion of my time, not one second, even though 90% of my gaming friends are huge fans and have told me to do so several thousands of times. I don’t know where my disdain stems from to be honest. By all means, I should enjoy this franchise. It has elements that I know I dig; loot, grinding, and sick camp fires! Perhaps it is the difficulty and potential controller throwing I fear the most? Yes, that must be it. I will not play the game and let my hardware suffer, I will watch other do it instead!

Now to be clear, I am the last person to go out of my way to watch a “let’s play” or “reaction” video. I don’t understand the huge popularity surrounding them in general. I do feel there are some exceptions though, and I feel this is one of them.

Watch as these innocent six people suffer the opening portion of the first Dark Souls, and their encounter with the very first boss (via Game Informer):

As somebody who has never played Dark Souls, I found the video stupidly funny.Some of the comments and reactions had my giggling shamelessly! What about you? Have you played the game and do you find these reactions genuine? Tell me you weren’t yelling “DODGE DODGE DODGE” the whole time, because I definitely was.

  1. Dark Souls 2 is not unfairly difficult, trust me. It has an insanely tough barrier to penetrate but once you get through and it all clicks, it will hook. So, count me as #16746 person telling you to play Dark Souls.

    I gave up on the game, the game was difficult and encouraged you to pick fights with guys that are way overlevelled, but it wasn’t the difficulty that pushed me away, the character just wouldn’t do what I wanted him to do, combat and movement felt so janky, couldn’t pit up with it

      The combat is perfect… Its slow sure but its responsive as it needs to be.. Closest thing I can compare the dark souls games combat to is street fighter. As its the only game mechanic thats as in deph. The mobs are not over levelled at all. Dark souls just isn’t for you.. Maybe in a couple of years.

    I still prefer Demon Souls over this.
