24. Iudex Gundyr

Iudex Gundyr

The camera and controls in Dark Souls 3 is your biggest enemy in the game.

19. Yhorm the Giant

18. Ancient Wyvern

17. High Lord Wolnir

High Lord Wolnir

Less fun is — much like Yhorm the Giant & Ancient Wyvern — this gimmick exists NOWHERE else in the game.

16. Vordt of the Boreal Valley

Vordt of the Boreal Valley

Vordt can’t attack you if you’re inside it’s anus.

Frustrating

15. Aldrich Devourer of Gods

14. Old Demon King

Old Demon King

As you play Dark Souls 3, you’ll come to realised the idealised game in your head is way more interesting and fun than what actually got made.

Brutal

7. Pontiff Sulyvhan

Pontiff Sulyvahn
  1. The timing for the enemy attack animation is really awkward. For example, you can parry even with your back to the enemy! Just didn’t make any sense.
  2. The parry and backstab animation is awkward — the enemy freezes, and everything just gets teleported into place. Sometimes.
  3. You lose health on successful parries! And unlike Bloodborne, you don’t earn your health back.
  4. If you miss a parry, with a tough enemy you’re pretty much stunlocked into a combo until you’re dead.

6. Soul of Cinder

Soul of Cinder

5. King of the Storm/Nameless King

King of the Storm/Nameless King

4. Demon in Pain & Demon from Below / Demon Prince DLC

Demon in Pain, Demon from Below / Demon Prince

3. Sister Friede & Father Ariandel/Blackflame Friede DLC

Sister Friede & Father Ariandel

2. Slave Knight Gael DLC

Slave Knight Gael

1. Darkeater Midir DLC

Darkeater Midir

Midir isn’t difficult: Midir is just awkward and cheap. And so is much of Dark Souls 3.

Playthrough 1 — Knight
