>OMG DARK SOULS SO HARD
>OH SHIT PREPARE TO DIE HARDEST GAME EVER
>YOU SHOULD PLAY DARK SOULS YOU'LL DIE A TRIZILLION TIMES LOLOLOL
that sounds like normies talking about a game rather than the dark souls fanbase itself.
if youre talking about how people defend shockwave attacks and how pvp is not broken at all, then that would be a more accurate representation of the dark souls fanbase.
This, how dare people find happiness in things/ways I dont.
Why do you people have to be angry with everyone else? Why worry yourself with the ways of other people?
I died a lot to Artorias, but I beat him after my 8th try.
Felt happy. The game is not hard but a bit challenging and satisfying once you get passed a troubling part.
Fuck the niggers who spew this SOHARDudielots shit, though.
Man, I loved the first Dark Souls but once I had started getting a lot of hours into the game the ridiculousness of the autism levels in the community really started to shine. I had to private my GFWL so people would stop messaging me why I was shit every time I played PvP or sending me EPIC SUN MEMES if I ever did co-op.
/v/ and stream monsters aren't FG fans anon. Once you learn that and hang out with the real FGC even some dedicated people online you realize its one of the more chill communities.
There are always those people like 1/30 of the real bunch who will act like those faggots but its not nearly as common. Just don't post in most streams especially during a major or take anyone here seriously even this.
i have NEVER seen a soulsfan say any of those things
the ONLY time i see this shit posted is when people are mocking soulsfans.
stop being a memespouting faggot
>Without a mace
Does this nigger not know i use a mace in every Souls game? Can't wait to run through 3 seeing everyone with their giant swords and weird magic when i beat everything to death with my beautiful simple weaponfu. Honestly the only reason i even finished DaS2 was because of the mace i thought the game was shit otherwise.
Undertale and Souls/Bloodborne
One shoehorns Undertale in everything they can
The other listens to VaatiVidyas pedophile voice make up random shit to them 24/7 and vehemently lecture people on how every game is shit compared to Dark Souls
Souls/Bloodborne threads are always fun, I remember having problems with Demon souls finding all the materials to upgrade weapons and I got all the help needed. The main problem are the casuals on facebook really, posting stupid memes that are not funny at all unless you have 6 years.
The normie part of the Souls fanbase. It happens sometimes with random faggots who might just be baiting too. Anyone who tries to tell me that the Souls games are massively hard are a bother. They're mildly challenging but nothing i did experience 100x over in Ninja Gaiden 2/NGB on higher difficulties.
These kinds of people have outright called me a liar when i tries to say i didn't find the games as hard as games like NG DMC and didn't find them to be notable in that regard.
This is untrue. What hurts someone else can not hurt you, what someone else gains is no gain to you. There is no need to have your mind shaken by the words or ideas of others. At best, you can try to teach them of their wrongdoings, or be taught yourself about yours, but in the end all you have is your own mind to take care about.
the worst part of any fanbase is not representative of the entire fanbase
i say this every fucking thread about fanbases
you can find horribly cringey art/songs/gendershit about ANY GAME
what's your favorite game? i bet you a million dollars i can find something cringey for it.
why would anyone care about fanbases? talk to the people who are cool, ignore the autists.
if i listened to /v/'s constant cynicism and xenophobia, i would have missed out on so many great games.
just shut up, and fuck off
There is no normie part. Dark Souls sold like 2 million copies in total. That less than Monster Hunter 4 did in 2 weeks in Japan alone.
Only games with +30 million sales get normies.
Duh it logically doesn't make any sense. Just like love and socialization have no actual purpose in a civilized society. But they make us feel things and act on those feelings regardless. If there is one thing I've learned it's that people only have the luxury of acting aloof and disconnected until something they give a shit about gets violated.
Well i guess just the retarded faggot portion who can't accept that other people just aren't retarded and don't die to traps the first time every time and can adapt to a bosses pattern within the first try sometimes.
I enjoy the Souls form of story telling. But to say it doesn't have flaws is asinine. BloodBorne probably has the most outright explained story with the DLC in the series and even that leaves holes for questions.
Every other game is basically 30% explained story if you look in depth and 70% fanfic theories.
The only people that think Dark Souls is the hardest game ever are people who probably were introduced by games playing Halo 2 or some shit like that.
The difficulty level in Dark Souls was challenging and refreshing, since most of the time, modern games are too easy on the normal difficulties.
The whole game also was much more than the sum of it's parts and it's undoubtedly superior to Dark Souls 2, although that is also a fantastic game.
I think it's just your typical core gamer who spent too much time in an echo chamber and grew delusional over how everything the game did was perfect. Sort of like Undertalefags.
Chaos Witch Quelaag first play through was hard if you didnt cheese the game with the drake sword
4 kings on NG+ was kinda bullshit
bed you could just cheese the fight with arrows/leave and reload/arrows/leave and reload
O + S was a cool fight and def a noob crusher
wish the final boss was better
gewd game tho def worth the time i wasted on it
>people who call things "the Dark Souls of" something to mean "it's really hard"
>acting aloof and disconnected until something they give a shit about gets violated.
So give no shits, only take them.
>But they make us feel things and act on those feelings regardless.
These are the only things we have control over in the universe. Our own feelings, reactions and acts. One should learn to keep his calm when faced with ideas he seems untrue and unnatural. Like I said, you can only teach people of their wrongdoings or learn about your own. When you have done your part, whether they take your advice or not is not your responsibility.
I'm repeating myself, but my original point still stands, it should not matter what others find happiness from.
This. People often lose their rationality when they find something they enjoy, people should always remember that nothing is perfect.
Deus Ex, Dark Souls and Undertale are some of my favourite games, but people overrate these games way too much to the point that I'm almost ashamed to like them.
>tfw backstabbing muh honorfags while they're bowing
That's what you get for honorably invading me.
man, anyone else remember that tripfag?
The /v/ fans are the minority and the majority is what pisses people off. the "LE HARDEST GAME EVER LOL" and any criticism is met with "LOL YOU PROBABLY JUST DIED AND QUIT LOL" like what the fuck. Worst fan base ever, especially when dark souls is just casual
monster hunterat the end of the day.
CSGO faggots, not all but you know the fuckers.
I'm completely delusional about Monster Hunter, I feel that everything it does is absolutely perfect and removing anything would detract form the experience. My one complain isn't even a real complaint, I think there should be more of everything.
Well, at least you know you're delusional. I guarantee you the game has flaws and if I played it I'd probably dislike some aspects. Not to say it's a bad game or anything, but I have yet to play a "perfect" game
Probably the Chivalry community. You could mash your ass all over the keyboard blindfolded and some idiot will still say you're being cheap if you manage to kill them. I have no clue what attracted so many people who can't admit they lost fair and square to that game.
people who buy nintendo games
buy who play imbalanced shooters like tf2, cod, modern halo, etc
people who think fighting games are balanced
That was the marketing campaign. Any flaws in the game design were because it was completely scrapped half-way through and a second director had to make a Frankenstein monster out of the remaining parts to salvage the game.
>beat game with no armor and a club
>in champions covenant
"herp derp diz game is hard git gud"
ds2 was a joke until the DLCs where they tried to make every boss fight involve you fighting multiple fuckers
The problem is people took the idea of something being more challenging than most modern games as being le hardest game of all time ebin death git gud fagio! The point was to praise them for going in the right direction not pretend they were the benchmark for whether you're casual or not like most bandwagoning Souls fans seem to think now.
On another note that is slightly related. I think there is an over fetishising of difficulty in general here and a few other places. Not every game needs to be the hardest thing I ever played to be good, if you want to make every game hard as a perquisite for being good we can easily just making everything I want to be the guy levels of artificial difficulty. I know people hate hearing this word here but at some point the shit has to be fun as well. There is a lot more about the Souls games I like other than just their perceived Meme levels of difficulty, but it's hard to translate that to text. You have to just see the shit. After being in all those dank places for so long and seeing Anor Lando for the first time, it just felt like such a great accomplishment and the beauty was contrasted so much by everything before that.
Was the Quelaag fight actually difficult? I killed her on my first attempt and I don't know if it was blind luck or what but that was the easiest thing in the game besides that sewer croc dragon fellow
cant prove me wrong
i dunno i beat the capra demon first try and took 3 or 4 on quelaag. feel like i was really undergeared for the fight at that point so early in the game and minimal shards to upgrade weapon
second playthrough with drake sword early made the game a joke though and really bastardized most of the boss fights for the majority of the game
I pulled Quelaag for my first time last night. I only did 25% damage to her trying to what she's all about, but I can say the biggest obstacle is that she is fast as fuck and has a very large conal spray/DoT. So I suppose the strategy is to just stay close and hug her avoiding the frontal cleave attack, but if you had been fat strafing the whole game up until that point it would be reasonably challenging for you.
Honestly Capra was dangerous but also easily exploited, simply by luring off of the stairs and incurring a falling recovery.

>The only people that think Dark Souls is the hardest game ever are people who probably were introduced by games playing Halo 2 or some shit like that.
Not really, Souls games are simply antithesis of about two generations worth of design approach.
>player should never really feel challenged to a point of frustration
>everything is presented in a clear cut manner, especially story
>game should constantly be showering the player in hints and tutorials, if he dies it should NEVER be his own fault
See what I mean? Souls games aren't difficult as some make them out to be, they just require you to get a different mindset and actually think.
Meh, if you call that autism, then I will decidedly consider anyone I see acting like a faggy dork with their friends (basically all normies do this) just as autistic.
I'd actually consider it very autistic if it was one guy doing all of that by himself. I do this when I am alone.
I have a lot of parties by/with myself and it's always fun.
well, the good news is that you proved my point about not judging fanbases based off of its worst side.
there are plenty of normal people playing this game who don't have parties with themselves
>gets triggered by people he doesn't even know having fun with a game
Monster Hunter, at least the community outside of Japan. Japs in the MHX guild halls give me cancer.
The games are good and well-made but highly iterative and the newer ones don't innovate.
But OoC innovated 3d camera/combat and MM was pretty ahead of its time in terms of storytelling.
Souls: Meme-Spouters are the problem portion
PC: Vocal "Master Race" shitheads are their problem portion. So Reddit or the portion of elitists on /v/. This also applies to Sonyggers they also have a vocal elitist portion.
No to DQ fanbase being tolerable atm or no to it being on it's way to becoming as shitty as the FF fanbase is?
Anyway here is an image for you to start a new thread with, I'm sure you'll get shitload of replies with it.
>OMG DARK SOULS SO HARD
>OH SHIT PREPARE TO DIE HARDEST GAME EVER
>YOU SHOULD PLAY DARK SOULS YOU'LL DIE A TRIZILLION TIMES LOLOLOL
You think that's bad? Just be thankful if you weren't one of the stupid fucks who fell for the "you MUST buy a bloodborne/netflix machine, this is the best game ever LOL!" scam.
PC fags. Though it's mostly the steam faggots who discovered video games last generation and are spewing le master race memes and generally being a huge cancerous tumor to gaming. Those faggots who watch e-celeb shit, port beg, shitpost everything, they only ever play assfaggots and flavor of the month meme games. They ruined more than one fanbase.
>They ruined more than one fanbase.
So did consoles.
>all they would have to say is "i like thing because reason"
>"i dislike thing because of this reason"
>"youre entitled to dislike thing, i personally enjoy thing"
>no, they have to sperg out, and the result is this image
For any fanbase, really, if fans like this exist who can't still like a game without receiving criticism, it disappoints me. You shouldn't have to defend a game this hard, especially if it's just deflecting opinions.
Basically any other Japanese game fanbase, but you wouldn't know because you hate everything Japanese, don't you?
>bloodborne didn't win a single award at the 2015 GOTYs
>no glorious nippon developer chose it as their personal GOTY either
At least you still have "Netflix machine sales numbers", amIrite?
literally every fanbase
I have never seen a game without a shitty fanbase, although some are obviously worse than others
Just play games that you like and ignore the fanbase behind them if it bothers you so much
You basically hate every fanbase or anyone who says it's a fan of something. Everyone is annoying in their own special way, but some people are a bit more special. I think some nintendo franchises are more disgusting, like pokemon, zelda, smash bros. By any means are bad games but the people who is related to that make it difficult to approach, dumb elitism.
Is there a fanbase that has managed to avoid this bullshit?
>play BB for months
>come back and try to play Das1 again
>get my ass handed completely
I died like 5 times to those hollows with the trident guy in Undead Parish and three times on Gargoyles
I used to do SL1 runs in this game without much problems. Had to sit down and think for a while what the fuck had happened to me
>people who defend region locking,
>those that are attacking others just because they don't like their favorite game
>people who make excuses for mictrotransactions and day 1 DLC and paying 60 dollars for low quality shovelware
>people who defend paying for online
>people who defend mandatory, anti-consumer DRM
>people who ruin threads by constantly bringing up off-topic materials
Just as a start. These things should be sorted out before we start attacking other fanbases.
Fallout is primarly a PC game. The games sure did well on consoles but everyone is playing them on PC and the normies who praise them on Xbox don't come here to shitpost these games. Or maybe you actually believe that the Fallout 4 fanbase was GOAT but the console release turned it to shit?
Oh boy, I was expecting that one. Let's see, TeS made its console debut on Xbox with Morrowind. Back then it went fairly smoothly. Oblivion made more waves on consoles and introduced the infamous horse armor but the fanbase was still fairly the same with a minority of console gamers. Skyrim is when shit really went down, plenty of people discovered the series with the Xbox version but these were fucking normalfags, they liked the game thought it was great and then shut up about it. Meanwhile the PC version was breaking sales records and is the most played game of any PCuck after assfaggots/CS/TF2. And these are the people who go online and shitpost.
>Call of Duty
Cuck of Duty was a 100% console game since MFW2 and even before. Next you're going to tell me consolefags ruined Halo?
>Patch X.XX fixed everything!
>WoW nostalgia/new expansion shilling
>HotS fags desperation to remain relevant by shitting up Dota 2 threads
>Hearthdrones with moms credit card
>Overwatch porn threads because the game is complete trash
If we could ban a publisher it would be this.
Nep is shit ever since the PCucks bandwagoned. Senran Kagura will turn to shit when SV hits steam.
Touhou is alright I guess if you have high tolerance for faggotry. Let's hope the franchise never hits steam.
Dragon's Dogma fans.
I've hated this fanbase since the very first day and I started playing around DA release.
I've never had discussion about this game with DDfags, they have an inferiority complex, since their game was underrated for so long, they feel threatened every time you say something negative about their game. They will also compare it to other game just to say how superior is it, yet they can't believe why their game is compared to Skyrim or Dark Souls.
They will pretend that every design flaw (the poorly implemented hard mode, the tedious backtracking, lack of mounts, mediocre open world design) was actually made on purpose and they will praise how great these are, despite the fact that it's obvious to anyone with common sense that most of these are the result of the game being rushed, the developers themselves admitting it.
Also don't fall into their meme that PC players will ruin it, they will ruin it themselves shitposting about it.
Yes but COD 4 is a console game. Blame the developer. Consolefags have nothing to do with Activison moving to consoles.
Next you are going to blame sonyggers for the Witcher 3? Oh wait, the Witcher fanbase actually improved with this one.
Katawa Shoujo fans.
Not that I dislike KS, it got me into visual novels to begin with and it will always have a special place in my heart. But holy fucking shit, what a cancerous fanbase this ended up getting.
Capra is piss easy, you shouldn't die more than once to him.
The only thing that's hard about Queelag is how she completely destroys your framerate on console.
What is poise?
Bed is just retarded.
O&S isn't that hard if you actually pay attention to what is happening at all times.
Gwyn was just right.
Was Dark Souls a PC game made with the PC audience in mind or was it a console game?
And yes you are patly right. It's the developers fault for whoring his franchise to the retards. Though considering what Counter Strike has become I'm not sure Activision made the wrong choice here.
now I can't say that I am impartial but the E.Y.E community creates plenty of OC, guides and gives tips whenever a thread is made most of the times someone fires up a server as well.
From my experience they are less elitist then the average bunch
>Basically any other Japanese game fanbase, but you wouldn't know because you hate everything Japanese, don't you?
The fact that you can say this with a straight face shows that your're completely biased and just as much of a moron as someone who does hate all things japanese.
The correct answer is every fanbase has garbage communities and good communities.
Rust used to be decent. You got raided, tough shit, that happens. No one bitched about raiding.
Then all the fucking kids came along because games like those attract kids harder than bugs to spilled pop on a warm summer day.
They cry all the time because they're shit at the game
>kid tries to raid/kill
>"you killed me i was friendly!"
>"why did my house near the large landmark with no cover get raided?!"
>"im not raiding, so dont raid me at [insert house location here]"
>"does anyone have any tools/guns/anything i could have?"
Man, I've only played the first Monster Hunter on my PS2. I love that game, but never had the chance to play with someone else. I have played it for four or five years and is one of my GOATs. It IS perfect
Undermemers are the worst of all fanbases ever to walk on /v/.
DS fanbase is actually pretty nice, they told me so much to gid gud I actually got gud and finished the games without Havel and other bullshit builds. I had a lot of fun doing it too and now Souls games are my favourite of all.
her face may look white but her backside definitely looks like an asian girl's...
