Is Dark Souls worth 20 dollars?

I did not like this game, and found it boring, repeatitive, with terrible graphics and a crap story........however it is worth the money for $20, and it can last quite a while.

I think everyone in the gaming world weather you are a Nintendrone, Sony Pony, Xbot or part of the Master Race can agree that Pachter should be fired.

Then I guess you never read the description of any of the items you were picking up?

There's your story.

yeah i did. the game is horrible at explaining its garbage mechanics. you go ahead and justify wasting money on garbage though


Is garbage your favorite word or what? So much salt here it's not even funny.

Anyways, it's well worth the 20 dollars if you know what you are getting into. I paid 60 on the release day because I felt spontaneous and kind of hated it for the first 5 hours or so. After that it was smooth sailing, and it's now one of my favorite games of all time.

The combat only feels clunky at first. If you can get over that hump, the game is very smooth and rewarding, with intense melee combat that feels more realistic than a lot of other fantasy games.

Story is on par with Monster Hunter basically and by that I mean it's pretty much non-
exsistant. HOWEVER, unlike Monster Hunter, Dark Souls has a very deep and cryptic lore that you can gain bits and pieces of from reading item descriptions in game.

The game is not repetitive, does not have clunky combat nor have terrible graphics.

Does this look bad to you?

Combat is fast & fluid, little kids just play the game not know that there is a difference between heavy weapons & light weapons & that wearing heavy armor slows you down if your endurance stat is low.
You also have to block attacks & not button mash, which is the # 1 thing that frustrates crappy gamers.

Game has the largest amount of unique areas out of any RPG this gen as well as being non-linear.

Worst game I've ever played. Avoid at all costs.

no. Its got a bad framerate, no story, muddy graphics and clunky combat. get dragons dogma or skyrim instead


I usually tend to agree with your choice in gaming, but having played all 3, Dark Souls I enjoyed infinitely better than the others.

You know, whenever a poster uses the terms "b**** and whine" or "piss and moan" or something similar, I simply ignore the entire post.

It's one of the few games out there that is actually WORTH the $60 on release, IMO.

Party like it's $19.99!
