Top places I've died in Dark Souls (So far)


In celebration of the announcement of Dark Souls on the PC, I thought I would regain you all with the tales of me dying multiple times in this pain in the arse of a game!
For everyone who doesn't know and has clearly been living on Neptune or something; Dark Souls is the second game of the 'Souls' games; I'm not really sure what else to call them haha.
The game itself is also stupid hard at some points, even with all the little hands you can get at the beginning.

1.
Dark Root Basin - A more green area in contrast to Dark Souls' variety of levels and maps and arenas and all sorts! The reason I died here in particular, relates to passing the first fog-gate, where you meet camouflaged snakes, sleeping giants and more vicious tree people! Having the idea in my head that I needed to go through here, I kept struggling and struggling, but to no avail. Later, I discovered I didn't need to go this way... And almost immediately destroyed the disc.

2.
The Depths - A token sewer level that contains a wide array of smelly enemies. Some of which are: Slimes that can suck half your health if you’re not quick enough, poisonous rats and some weird creature that totally fucks me up later! While having poorly levelled my character, I found this area to be an uphill struggle, especially when it came to facing the giant rat in a straight up fight... And totally not hitting him and then hiding in the tunnel.

3.
Blight-town - Dark, dingy, full of more poison, bugs and even an invader; this map was the furthest thing from what I thought it would be. While I didn't die here THAT much until I revisited, to pick up the totally sweet katana that is hidden here. I was trying to find another way out by going back through the depths, only to be cursed by some dick of a monster and return to Blight-Town, with half health. Let the rage begin.

4.
Sen's Fortress - My deaths here were mostly attributed to falling like an idiot after being hit by the swinging blades... The last set of blades are an extra pain in the ass, as you're on a thin beam and you're being shot at by a magician with a freakin' snake head! Get fucked!

5.
Anor Londo - And we return to where I am stuck currently! No, I have not completed the game yet, but this is another place that just keeps grinding my gears... All I need to say is... Archers with big ass arrows, running in their general direction, thin rooftops. Rage ensues.

With no idea how close I am to the end of this game, I think my time of borrowing it, may have to be expanded as the challenge of his game just gets stuck under your skin and you want to power through the agitation to beat it, just so you can stand victorious and brag about it at the pub to all your friends who have no idea what you're talking about!

That's all for now children!
Remember, the Drake Sword will only get you so far!
