I sometimes think about the days when I would pick up the land line to call a girl and get blasted with the sounds of an autistic 8 bit phonograph screaming through a megaphone when I have to reset the modem and router.

that's retarded. anybody with any idea how the internet works uses email attachments or dropboxes to send documents. fax machines are antiquated as **** in any society that has computers and internet, which is to say most first world countries.

Dark souls is actually harder , and I have played both , the only problem with the original prince of persia was that it was timed ( you had to finish the game in an hour ) and that guy on level 6 who wouldn't try to actively attack you ( Just blocks and counters )

Dark Souls is only notable today because other games are so numbnumingly easy.
Its of no more then average difficulty if compared to games from era of Prince of Persia.
I wonder what people who think Dark Souls is omfg so hard would think if they were told to play for example Ghosts 'n Goblins. Where enemies have to just touch you twice and you start from the beginning, no matter how far you got.

shadow warrior, Avp Classic, unreal, quake, and rise of the triad were way harder than dark souls imo.

Ninja Gaiden gets really hard at the end, the rest is pretty easy. Silver Surfer, TMNT, or the original Mega Man have it beat in difficulty. Dark Souls is hard but it still doesn't reach legendary status of difficulty. It's a good start for changing the majority of stupidly easy games out there though.

Well Dark Souls isn't hard to begin with, just a little punishing.
However this game is just artificially difficult, no room for mistakes

Fun fact: Jordan Mechner, the creator of this game, asked his brother to do the movements for the Prince, recorded and traced over them to create the animations we see in the game, that's why they look so natural and fluid

Remember spending hours running around in circles trying to figure out on what to do since you wasn't able to look up a guide and finally when you figured it out you die cause of the stupidest reasons and it sends you back to the start

the 3 things i liked most about that time was:
1. when you had the right idea about what to do, but the text input did not allow your action, although it would have been just right if you used other words.
or you just stand at the wrong pixels to trigger it.
2. missing 1-2 seemingly unimportant or unknown items at the previous scene or early game, you 100% absolutely need it now and you could not return to get the item.
3. no internet back then - nobody around to help you. companies telephone hotline unavailable at your country.

the sarcastic death notes were great. SQ was best game.

This game came as an extra with my Prince of Persia Sands of Time. I played it for like an hour and couldn't get the jumps right. Needles to say, I rage quit.
