After wrapping up New Londo Ruins, I decided to make my to the Demon Ruins. I won't lie-NLR was not fun. Aside from fighting the Darkwraiths, I never quite felt like I was a skilled warrior. Fighting the kings didn't change that either.
I arrive to Demon Ruins, and I remembered what made me love this game in the first place. No transient curses needed; just pure combat against massive beasts and fun bosses in perilous landscapes!
So that leads me to my question:
When and where was that moment in the game that had that perfect blend of everything you absolutely loved?
