The Dark Souls 'easy mode' frustrates the hell out of me. It can be patronising (urgh, git gud scrubs) or it can be ill-informed, ignoring the part difficulty has to play in the overall appeal of the Souls series.
I suspect a Dark Souls easy mode would look absolutely nothing like the above video, but still. This is a fun parody of modern video games and their refusal to let us figure out anything for ourselves.
It's funny though, this sort of thing has me torn. Because I like the idea of games being accessible to a broader audience and I don't think there's anything wrong with providing newer players with the required information they need to play something like Dark Souls.
But the door opening gag, where he has to slam the 'X' button over and over? That was perfect. Absolutely perfect.
