"There are hard games, and then there are titles that are just plain unfair. Role-playing game "Dark Souls" falls under the latter, " I'm guessing that you had no fucking clue where to go, so you tried fighting the skeletons first? Talk to the guy in chainmail enough, he tells you to head up the stairs on the cliffside. That is where you are supposed to go, and where you are more suited for right off the start. As someone who has played through dark souls multiple times, I can tell you that it is ENTIRELY fair.
Glad Zelda 2 made the list! That is one of my favorite Zelda's, and it was so hard........took me years to beat the final boss, because the last dungeon is so big, no map, and invisible drops.........but i love it to this day. Great design for its time.
Dark Souls is called Unfair? It's very fair and with pretty easy combat(enemies have very narrow move pool). I guess author was expecting another god of war button smasher out of it... where you can just run carelessly ahead into every combat scenario. Whenever you do that in DS you get hit overhead with a club.This list is broken because 80/90 arcade games were all insanely difficult and extremely long also. Good old pac-man was beaten by only few people on the world. Beating Mario Bros also takes a lot of sweat and tears. You could go on and on with list like that for ever if you decide to include 80's and early 90's.
