Well i have and i haven't mate,you have way more patience than me when it comes to a fair few games and the time you spend learning the art of mastering Shareplay and creating some really nice stuff........[Pity your a dirty rat traitor]
I just persevere with games i know are good and worth it,bloodborne been the obvious one,jorkila is playing this at the moment and like you he finds it frustrating and repetitive constantly dying and having to do it over and over again.
But if he is honest and now reads this he will or should openly admit although frustrating its now getting a little easier having gone through that initial 3 hours of learning the art of playing Bloodborne.
Opening more lamps,opened gates that you couldn't open initially now bring you back to the point were you died in seconds,rather than have to fight your way through the level once again.
Bloodborne was a game i followed in development for a few years,and i new about the developers From Software having played many of there previous games like demon souls,they are renown for making brutally tough games but with a purpose.
