I thought I'd hate this game because I'd heard it was so difficult (turns out it was quite exaggerated, at least at first) and I'm not really one for swords, knights, magic, the undead and all that - I'm definitely more of a Fallout guy than a Elder Scrolls guy - and I also didn't get on with Demon's Souls too well, but I got hooked on Dark Souls pretty quickly and played the absolute crap out of it for a long time.
Then I got to Anor Londo. I pootled around a bit, knowing the infamous archers were coming up, I did everything I could do until it came to a point where they were unavoidable, and... I died many, many times. I kept trying, determined to beat them out of principle and I did indeed end up beating them, I got to the next bonfire, rested and quit the game. I haven't been back since. I don't dislike the game now but knowing it gets harder than that (in a cheap way specifically) has completely killed my enthusiasm to continue.
I don't mind games being difficult where it's clear that the main reason I'm failing is because I'm just not very good - like the Gaping Dragon fight - but when I'm failing because the game designers put two enemies with extremely high knockback effects and damage on either side of a T-shaped ledge as thin as it could possibly be, or because of the controls (I remember somehow flinging myself off the ledge a few times), I just want to give up. That's exactly what happened with Dark Souls, so... However, on the strength of everything I played up to that point, I would recommend the game... But because that one encounter made me give up completely, it's quite a reluctant recommendation.
