It's not your fault. Uncharted 2 is an extremely poorly constructed game, the exact opposite of Demons Souls in fact. Where in Uncharted 2 you can be a great shot and still be killed because the game forces you to play a certain way, where Demons Souls allows you to be literally perfect if you're good enough at it.

It pigeonholes you into a certain style of play that I find too brainless and repetitive, whereas Demons Souls requires you to pay attention constantly and give your best effort on every single attempt.

Demon's Souls is definitely a nice change of pace from the RPG's I'm used to (mostly from the past 5 years) due to it's increased difficulty and patience stressing gameplay mechanics. All that said, I'm really starting to like the game more and more as I progress through it. Being a person with a very short patience, this game is making me learn how to chill out
Haha, it's an awesome game and it will test you. You have to give 100% 100% of the time, and if you don't, one of those rolling skeleton ****ers will make you pay for it. I loved that game, but I sold it because I had basically beaten it 100%. I knew how to get all the unique items, and I was fully capable of doing it, it's just that they don't really offer any specific incentive besides a boost in PVP, which I never really got into in the first place because Demons Souls PVP is broken as ****.

Don't even own Uncharted 2 lol. I got the Uncharted PS3 bundle before the PS3 Slim launched (glad I got my hands on the fat model, I like it much better). So luckily I didn't go out and buy the game expecting it to be fun lol. Brought it home, popped it in, and had fun for about 20 mins and lost interest. Played for about another hour or two and couldnt go on anymore.

Getting more and more into FF13 right now though. Just hit chapter 7, finally getting interesting. The only thing keeping the game together though is the story, the gameplay blows in comparison to the older FFs (I prefer the old school ATB style). The boss battles are the only time you really need to incorporate any strategy, 95% of the game is pressing "X" and very linear.

Also, OP, take a look at 3D Dot Game Heroes. Its a Zelda homage and lots of fun. Not very challenging I thought, but entertaining.

I would go for the multitude of sweet games all below $20!!

Metal Gear 4 - 10
Uncharted 2 - 20

Those are good examples, in my opinion don't spend alot on any one game unless you really want it, so much value to be found in the older used games.
