    Having fallen in love with Dark Souls up to the Tomb of the Giants, I can - sort of - agree with this. Some - and only some - of the bosses in Dark Souls are novel and challenging. Taurus Demon comes...

    Ugh...boss fights. When can we retire those from the annals of gaming again? At least in their current iteration, they are often the worst thing about games. I wish developers would realize that...

    In my opinion the quality of the game suffers after Anor Londo. Not in terms of level design. Tomb is pretty cool in terms of how its designed. So are some of the other areas.
