    What made me tire of Dark Souls?

    Post by User1 on Tue Apr 09, 2013 11:56 pm

    Anyone can say, playing too much, which is most likely a contributor, but, I was able to play for ages beforehand, without burning out. What else would have made me burn out on the Souls series?

    For me, just playing it too damn much. I started playing about a year ago (I have it on all 3 systems) and haven't stopped at all really...

    Also subconsciously I think I want to get away from the souls series for a while so that i'm fresh and keen for Dark Souls 2.

    I guess I should settle with that as a conclusion.

    Lack of inspiration.

    Lack of new things to do/test.

    That's what's getting me right now.

    2007scape.

    It's all a plot by Jagex!

    Yes, 2007scape is great fun. Most likely a contributor.

    I'm intrigued, but I'm also poor.

    $7 USD translates to £4.95. Strange. I don't see how you don't have it, but still.silly

    I think this thread has reached the conclusion; Lack of replay value, too much playing.

    Got more games to play Renegade? Can that be why? Or the connection issue?

    To answer them;

    I have 2007scape. It has got me off Dark Souls. I just find 2007scape more fun after a 3 year break.

    Connection is p*ssing me off too, and I think a lack of proper online is preventing any type of value.

    I'm dirt poor. I have a $20 next to me, but I honestly have no clue when I can go to the store to get a 3 month card.

    And I probably couldn't uphold a membership for an extended period of time.

    When I get burnt out I just stop playing for a few weeks to a month. I've always taken these breaks, I don't think I'm cut out to play a game exclusive, Dark Souls or otherwise non-stop, month after month.

    My breaks have served me well and when something new piques my interest, be it a new build I haven't tried, an event, DLC, etc.. I get back in the saddle. Right now I'm back to playing Dark Souls. It's entirely possible that in 2 weeks' time I'll be taking a breather from it.

    I prefer to just find a new interest. As in, entirely new. But, that sounds better than doing a years worth of a break, which was what I was considering.

    For me, there is so much to do. I can Co-op (have several builds designed for different levels). I can Darkwraith (darkstalkers). Catbro. Darkmoon. Duel (Fight Club). Even Gravelord.

    Hasn't gotten old yet. When I get bored with one, I go to another.

    Lack of interest in playing PVP.
    No new challenges in PVE.
    New games to play.
    Trophy hunting.

    I know I should be encouraging Renegade to stick with Dark Souls but I need to tell you all a secret.You don't have to choose between Dark Souls and Call ofDuty.There are plenty of worthwhile games out there,you just have to try them.

    I played it too much between October and December, 2012. Then I started it up again two months later, and all of a sudden, my Dark souls addiction returned.

    You have probably played it for too long. Leave it for some time and start it up a couple months later.
    You could also try to try spice things up by making a series of challenges for yourself. (Fight Pinwheel with nothing but a broken straight sword. Run through the game as a SL 1 seven times. Fight Ceaseless discharge with nothing but an egghead. ETC).
