When it comes to games that are able to strike the very, very fine balance between ‘enjoyable’ and ‘punishingly, masochistically difficult,’ two recent game series come to mind: Trials and the Dark/Demon’s Souls games.
There’s a certain level of sadistic satisfaction that many players are able to extract from these and other games like them when completing what at first seems like an impossible challenge after dozens and even hundreds of tries.
Which other games have you played in your gaming career that are able to match up to the difficulty and enjoyment balance of the Souls and Trials series? Will you be playing Dark Souls II and Trials Fusion?
