Dark souls is fucking hard though
I feel this in my gaming soul
Me: (*browses through the library of trophies*)
Me: (*sees that two missing from different games*)
Me: (*Fine all 1000 chests, Find all 1000 collectables*)
Me: ……… FFFFUUUUUCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK

Now I’m not one for giving up on difficult games, I’ve finished all the souls games and all those like but sekiro fucked me in the ass I just couldn’t do it so I sold it and plan on getting it again when it’s cheaper but my god it’s a brilliant game.
The Twin Princes are too hard tho 😢
Metro exodus. I dont have far to go but Damn it’s dark as Fuck in that game
Bloodborne for me.
What if, im in the smae place as before?
Actually couldn’t finish dark souls 1 in the 360 days. Kinda always bothered me cause i enjoyed it so much, but i just couldn’t get past seath the scaleless. Last year that it got remastered I decided to commit to it and made sure to finish it no matter how long it took. After about five days i made it back to seath. Somehow all of that old frustration i had from my original run came back. Ultimately it took about a week for me to beat him ( i know that’s way too long lmao) and damn did it feel great to do so. I felt really accomplished that i beat a challenge that seemed impossible for me. Took me about another 2 days to finish the game and that sense of accomplishment only grew. Point is that the OP’s pic is right on the money. Sometimes you just got to keep going no matter how difficult something maybe. Know that my example is gaming related, but it’s a really good life lesson
If you’re not having fun playing a game, go play something else. This post is nonsense in a gaming context, but helpful for someone working a job they don’t like considering unemployment as an out.
Having video game ADD means i end up replaying the first 8 hours of a ton of games, sometimes multiple times. Then i never get to enjoy the end because i quit from being burned out on the beginning. after wow thats what ruined most MMOs for me, playing the first 20 levels or so of every class to find out what i liked then hating the game because i just played 40+ hours of the same content
Funny thing is using the image of Soul of Cinder (which is the collective physically manifested vessel of all the past Lords who linked the Fire, giving up their lives in the process) to exemplify willpower in retrying… It’s a shell of it’s former self, it gave up everything simply because it was told to do so, because it was so egocentric as to want the gods to rule forever, for the world never to change, to only delay the unevitable.
Yet here someone is, using it as a symbol of willpower. The irony…
I still see that dude giving me a thumbs up.
I gotta get back to Sekiro.
I see you follow Jae Crowder as well.
I guess I’ll keep dancing until I can afford 1 full Rune Scimitar…
I don’t play games that feel like work.
Its not the dififcult games that are a problem.
Its the frustrating games that abuse the players time.
This implies that you can’t load up your save and jump back in lol
*realizes Start doesn’t pause the game*
Particularly touching for me today. Thanks for that
Omega Pirate boss fight, Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime Trilogy on Hypermode… It took me three months, every day I would try at least two times, if I even got hit once walking from the save room to the boss room I would restart… I needed every single bit of life for that one… haha
This sounds like something of the whiteboard of a fucking awful employer…
So, I should keep doing heroin?
I seriously gotta do this for bloodborne…. the only game where I gave up after 20 minutes in. I’ve tried restarting the game a couple times but cannot get into it -_- i never had that issue with dark souls and dark souls 2
Sunk cost fallacy.
When I was younger, I was all about cheat codes and the Game Genie. These days I LOATHE cheats. Just ends up with me giving up at some point, for a good amount of games.
3 months later and I still can’t beat the final boss.
this game is fairly easy if you utilize the helpers. even offline, the npc is enough to help you.
I’ve beaten ds3 twice and I wanna play it again but I get extremely bored cuz I’ve played the entire intro 50mil + times already
This can be a good motivation to keep doing workout
My brother, who is fucking 10 years old, literally went through 4 bosses in Dark Souls and then said “nah, it’s too hard, I give up”
This is exactly what go me through every single Dark Souls game. Keep going!
If you quit now, cake will be served immediately.
Last C-side of Celeste is a fucking nightmare
Yesterday i was about to quit sekiro in the last boss. Today i defeated him and finally finished the game. Fuck that game. I enjoyed it tho
If you read this quote and only think to apply it to video games, then you need to go outside.
Fuck now I gotta go kill Midir
Resident Evil 2’s No Way Out scenario.
Or do what I do – get a trainer and play offline….
I enjoyed ds 1-3 but won’t be playing sekiro or any game that doesn’t have quest markers….
I’m literally playing through DS3 for the first time and had rage quit 30 minutes before seeing this. I got back on and got through. Thanks. 😁

#1 rule of entrepreneurship
When you fail, fail fast.
Meaning dont try to save a sinking ship. Get out while you still have some sort of cash flow. Quite the opposite of this.
How do you begin to keep going?
