    It's an ending you either hate or love. I like the lack of build up personally. I was all like, "a world of Black Knights?" Fun. Wait. There's only five. Really? That can't be right. Maybe there's another area behind the fog. Nope. That's Gwyn. Instead of being disappointed though I felt it was near perfect. The whole world had gone to hell, the gods are decaying along with everything else. The former Ultimate Warrior (complete with tassels and face paint) is now a husk with his power almost depleted and almost no one left to protect him. Except for a fairly complex locked door he's pretty much naked to the world. And you have it right Rockstar. The game is ultimately pointless. No matter what you do just about everyone and everything is still dead and/or gone. Neither ending really "makes things alright." So after all your effort and sacrifices you never fix anything. And to make matters worse, you're stuck in an endless cycle in which the only escape is to do nothing (stop playing the game). And to top it all off your character has NO motivation. Almost like you're killing Gwyn because it's saturday night and all the other chosen undead had plans. That's why I like it though. The only game worth replaying is the one that never satisfies you.

    On topic. The worst part of the game in my opinion is the PS3 online issues.

    You guys are spot on. Dark Souls is supposed to feel just dark and depressing. Not counting online, you're constantly alone in this world, fighting all these battles on your own. Nobody is there to help you and nobody cares for you (except Soliare, he is the only true character that has a positive disposition in the world that does his best to help you when he can while on his quest.) Dark Souls is just a solemn purgatory, where our character is forced to relive the tourcher of being an undead. We are constantly lied to, used and evenevitably gets betrayed. Basically all your companions you meet end up going hollow and die alone or fighting you.
    One thing I like a lot that they did with the soundtrack is whenever you fight a boss that is undead, like Gywn or Gywndolin, the soundtrack is just very somber and kind of sad. These people used to he so great and now they are just becoming these mindless husks and slaves to their desires. It just makes me kinda feel bad to put them down, like what was mentioned earlier with Gywn. It's a shame. We can never really win.

    Yep Phantom, Skare, and Reaper. Those are the reasons Gwyn is one of my favorite bosses in recent games, one of my favorite characters actually.

    A blend of everyone's posts are the summation of the WORSE Dark Souls has to offer.


    For me, the worse part of Dark Souls was completing the game. The surprise and excitement was over. Now ng7 and beyond, even pvp has become some what of a chore often times for me. It's gotten to the point where based on your armor, shield, and weapon, I know what you are going to try to do before I even get close to you. My once spontaneous method of playing pvp/pve has become a mind numbing robotic calculation of what moves to make in order to kill you every time without much difficulty.

    God bless DLC!

    Meatshields! (Summon a phantom and let him run ahead)


    I think if Gwyn had some starting animation it would be much better. Instead of him launching into a standard attack you see many times later.

    Worst part of Dark Souls are Family masks in my opinion.

    If my wife gave birth to a baby wearing a Family mask, I'd slap em both.

    That's actually an hilarious comic idea.

    As to the post about Meat Sheilds... I would, but I don't has no Humanitites. I gave them all to Our Fair Lady.

    Erm tips are in spoiler tags:
    Spoiler:
    2H the biggest shield you got (best stability) and have a spear in your other slot, 2H turtle the way up, switch to backup shield and Lightning spear and poke poke, the issue is getting close enough, so roll until you get to the corner, then slowly walk forward along the ledge and out of the archers view after you dodge another arrow to get the biggest timeframe you can. Good luck to you.. Or you can just be a phantom for one guy at sens with the WSS and summon a meatshield.
    dont want to hijack the thread.

    I wis hteh masks had more simplicity, like a crystal mask without the crystals.

    There are more helpful NPCs in DkS than in DeS.
