But as the games have earned a larger fanbase, it has become harder for me to just put these games in (quite literally) the too-hard basket. At E3 this year, looking at the amazing graphics and yes-it's-even-harder gameplay for Dark Souls 2, I finally made the decision to suck it up and play Dark Souls. It is without doubt the most frustrating game I’ve ever played, but I’m transfixed, and return after every ragequit. I will finish the game, just so I can play the sequel.
