Sorry, but replaying the exact same area with the exact same enemies with the exact same encounter with the exact same content more than 10x in a row as a gameplay mechanic....
That's what makes it the worst game I've ever played. I like hard games myself, and I always play every game at max difficulty, but the Souls series is carved on repetition. That just doesn't make any bit of sense to me.
I can tell that you didn't really know what you were doing if you ever actually played Demon's Souls.
Oh, so you're the exceptional player who didn't have to replay the same area over and over again? Please tell all of us how you achieved such a feat.
You shouldn't have been going into an area repeatly unless you were there for something specifically and you didn't have to fight the majority of creatures in a area unless you wanted to. The game is not repetitive unless you're dying repeatily because of the same creatures/mistakes over and over again.
Alot of people who try to play the game offline only or "these days" never experienced the full game. Nothing can compare to playing the game while being invaded constantly by other players and helping fellow gamers through their game world. There's nothing repetitive about Demon's Souls. Every time you would go somewhere it was geniunely different because of other players. Alot of people kept playing the game long after they beaten it many times.
If you don't like the game, fine, that's your preference but it is one of the best games out there. Playing the game just a little bit won't give you any insight into the game. It's just like when a virgin loses their cherry but that person doesn't get the hype about sex til they've been at for a while.
Oh so you've gone through the entire game without replaying any sections whatsoever? Really?
You must be god himself. Sorry but I guess my mere mortal hands can't relate to your amazing ability. Offline or online, players die because the game is built that way. And when players die, we replay the whole section from the beginning.
If you never experienced that, congratulations. You might be the only man on Earth who hasn't replayed a section of the Souls series.
Edit: I appreciate the fact that some people enjoy repetition so they love the Souls series. That's fine. However, please don't pretend that they aren't all about repetition. That's the greatest lie I've ever seen.
Anyway I didn't make this thread to talk about the worst game I've ever played. I made this thread to talk about the best RPG in the past decade so I won't be making any further comments about how crappy Demon's Souls is.
