I don't understand that version of PC elitism... all but maybe one of the RPG's mentioned as the good ones earlier in this thread are on consoles as well.
After beating the tutorial, you have 3 (well 4 but one would be stupid to go to xD) choices of areas you can go to. You can go the way you went, which is the way you should go when learning the game. You could also go down to the catacombs, which is the direction behind the guy in chainmail sitting near the bonfire. Theres some stairs leading down near him, if you go down there you enter the new londo ruins... even an experienced player probably wont go here, but there is a building that links you to blighttown and the valley of the drakes, provided you have the master key (starting gift, or thief class).
If you run through the valley of the drakes, you can get up into the darkroot forest where there's all sorts of stuff to do. One of the coolest early minibosses is there, a hydra that shoots water jets out. You could also go up and fight the moonlight butterfly, that is a fairly easy boss as well.
In the end though, the game is all about the combat system. If you don't enjoy fighting the enemies, you won't like the game. The combat style is more like a fighting game then most RPG's. A sufficiently experienced player can kill enemies at level 1 that normal level 30 players have trouble with, since you can avoid damage by dodging at the right times.
