How do you know where you're supposed to go?

It just beat the bridge minotaur, but i just keep running into OP enemies... This game doesn't really do a good job at guiding you along.

You don't. There are a ton of ways you can go from the start, some easier than others. Welcome to Dark Souls.

smash the control images, smash the control machine.

It's not trying to guide you along since you can take different routes. you do get keys that unlock doors to new areas if you don't take the master key.

Kill one man, You're a murderer. Kill 1,000 men, You're a king. Kill them all....and You're a god!

The enemies aren't overpowered, just try to be more careful and don't run straight into any encounter. Go slow and think about what you're doing.

The moderation staff and system on this website are both absolutely terrible.

if you talk with the NPCs you get a general direction what to do. e.g ringing the bells. but the game doesn't guide you to the "correct" order or something.

ex·plore (k-splôr, -splr)
v. ex·plored, ex·plor·ing, ex·plores
v.tr.
1. To investigate systematically; examine: explore every possibility


You have to talk to the npcs in firelink a lot and pay attention to what they say. And do not rush in even after you have beaten the game the lowest most weakest foes will kill you if you get surrounded.

So you beat the Taurus Demon... did you try going forward? Because forward, has no OP enemies.

Unless of course you have the master key, and went a way you shouldn't be able to yet. In that case, it's your own fault.

You know that game I never played? That one?

Order for newbs (i.e. me a month ago)
From where you are:
Undead Burg
Undead Parrish
(you can piddle in Darkroot Forest/Basin a bit here)
Lower Undead Burg
Depths
Blighttown
Sen's Forest
Anor Londo
Painted World
**get the bonfire warp**
Knock out the rest of Darkroot
Duke's Archives
New Londo
Catacombs/Tomb of the Giants
Great Hollow/Ash Lake
Demon Ruins/New Izalith
Kiln

Now that's a rough, vague picture. You don't have to do it exactly in that order and there's alot of cool stuff you'll find.
But this is a good outline of what I did, and I'm not nearly good enough to survive the shortcuts.

the game tells you where to go through item descriptions and NPC dialogue.

Sometimes, I just want to shoot lightning at you, other times, I just want to smash your face open with my catchpole.
