I haven't gotten my hands on Dark Souls for very long "A friend brought it over for a couple hours" But I have played it, and Demon's Souls enough to know that the games are made for pure punishment! IF Dark Souls is anything like Demon's Souls "Besides there not being a Nexus, but campfires as you advance on your seemingly endless journey" I am guessing the grand reward for finally beating Dark Souls is getting to start all over again in New Game +. A lot of the animation was true to the game play by far! Dying countless times, before you finally figure out what the hell is going on, and then once you finally get past a part, something even worse awaits you. Then you come across another "Ally" and decide to help them, rather than smoke them, and they cause you nothing but grief. One thing that would have been cool to include but by far not relevant to expressing your point is the fact that you seem to always start with armor you can't even wear if you want to move and roll comfortably, and without it, you had better not get hit if you don't want to die or nearly be dead. You did great on this animation, and I am happy to see there are other fans of the Dark Souls series. Hopefully soon enough, I can spend a week or two cursing it like I did demon's souls.
