If you only know one thing about the Souls games, it’s that they aren’t easy. So when I started playing Dark Souls 3 a few weeks ago, I asked myself: what would the most people want to see?

The video above shows every single time I died while playing Dark Souls 3, from my optimistic beginnings challenging a giant crystal lizard in an ashen cemetery to my 19 excruciating defeats at the hands of the game’s final boss.
Needless to say, spoilers therein.
