Wich was acctually something I enjoyed about it! I like to see where to go by myself and have that kind of 'adventure' feeling, not knowing what awaits me there.. I think a large arrow above your head, pointing out where to go would've not been fitting in Dark Souls It would take away soo many opportunitys to die.. meh.
No not like obvious, but like in one game they like gave you a flash of what was up ahead/where you were supposed to go, it was only about a second but if you paid attention you would know where to go. It only showed you like the beginning of the trail of only major areas. So like it would show you a flash of the stair case you need to go up to ring the first bell. But I looked it up so it was all cool.
