I really like RPGs and most aren't overly difficult. I like RPGs because I feel like the play time vs money investment is good. I started playing Divinity Original Sin with a good friend JDuke705 then realized that the game is more or less single player. This game by far has been the biggest pain. Diablo III has hardcore mode where if you die you have to start from the beginning of the game. Divinity has a like mode called Honour but the difference is there is no help like there was in Diablo III. Add on top of that, any time a person in your party dies the game auto saves and you have the makings of a very frustrating play through. I have died so many times that I decided I will start tracking them just because.
My first couple of deaths I don't recall the exactly so I will do my best on those. Each playtime is an estimate of how long I played from the beginning of the story until the point I died.
Death - Cause - Playtime
1 - Mercenary - 00:15 (I really didn't know what I was doing and got killed in the first fight)
2 - Bomber - 01:35 (I dug up the wrong grave)
3 - Skeleton - 1:44 (Dug up the wrong grave again)
4 - Poison Trap/Fire Trap - 2:10 (I stepped on a trapped, backed up and stepped on another trap)
5 - Skeleton Mage - 2:45 (I thought I could handle the fight and things quickly got out of control)
6 - Fire Trap - 3:20 (I thought I was doing much but I ended up in an area where I felt I shouldn't have)
7 - Loic - 15:?? (Loic is a semi-boss that I under-estimated and before I could quit he killed someone and it was downhill from there)
8 - TBA - ??? (I have no doubt other deaths will happen)
Having restarted so many times I am wondering if I should just take over the guide for this game.
