Enjoy clips from some of my VERY first boss battles, along side clips from more recent kills.

The addition of an easy mode would detract from the experience of a game like Dark Souls. The possibility of failure is exactly what makes victory rewarding. Adding easy outs for the player to reduce the risk of failure lessens the experience for everyone- not just the people who use it.

Some people believe that they should have absolute control over the media they consume. Some people don't. I DO care about what I can learn from a game. There are in fact plenty of games that allow you to enjoy them on your own terms, but this one doesn't. And that is not a flaw of the game- it's a feature. You have to adapt to the game, or you don't get rewarded. You either get it, or you don't.

This is not an interactive movie with a foregone conclusion. It's a FUNDAMENTALLY different experience. If you want a title that caters to your whims, you are looking in the wrong place. One major reason why people love this game is BECAUSE it doesn't hand you anything in a menu. You wanna see the end boss? Either get good or summon someone who is.
