Bullshit, people like Dark Souls because it has a spammable "Negate all damage" button and every boss is a huge QTE where you tickle him to death. You can beat the game with a character that has a MAXIMUM health of ONE POINT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What is this "negate all damage" button? I've beat all the games and I guess I've missed that button every time.
There also is no QTE going on....
I enjoy those games because of the challenge that is not to say a small percentage of people wont find a way to beat the game at level one but all games have that percentage of people that find ways to beat the game without leveling.
