Can Someone elaborate more on the difficulty of Demon/Dark Souls

I'm thinking about getting these games, but everyone says that their difficulties are hellish. What makes them so hard. I always like a challenge, but will these games make me throw stuff?

Alot of taking your time through areas and even then there is some trial and error on things you don't expect to happen and you die from.

What makes these games hard is that you can't just hit reset when you die, it auto saves. You can shut down your PS3 if you time it right before you die, but you risk corrupting your save file.

Also, you lose all your souls when you die (basically your current exp/money). You have one chance to go back to your corpse and get them back, but if you die again in the process you lose them forever.

And yes, it's really easy to die in these games. One false move and you can fall off an edge and die, enemies and bosses really hurt too. Usually just a few hits and you're dead.

its like a nicer version of Splunker mode, instead of 1 shot death it could be 2-3 hits dead.

Not of lot of inherent difficulty, but moreso a lot of unknown. If you rush, you'll find many things, like you being overwhelmed. Taking things slow, you're still likely to have a death or two, and thought may be required to proceed beyond certain parts, but certainly a manageable challenge.

Its summed up in here:

Players who find it 'unforgiving' and 'masochistic' are playing with mentality of the YOLO player. I beat bosses and cleared levels in first attempt all because I played the game with patience and saw traps coming a mile away.
