You know a game is good when you can remove one of its main elements and it's still fun. For example, someone made a mod for Doom which removes all of the enemies. They literally removed the "Shooter" from "First Person Shooter", and guess what... it's still fun to play. It's nowhere near AS fun to play of course, but it's still entertaining. That's the hallmark of a great game.
(As another example, Left 4 Dead is a multiplayer-focused game that's fun to play in singleplayer.)

If difficulty is that important to the Souls games that removing it would ruin the game. Then I'm sorry... it's obviously not that great of a game series. But I'm of the opinion that the Souls games would still be quite fun if they were ridiculously easy, and that it's just the elitists being annoying a-holes as usual. Someone who's played the games using hacks will have to tell me if I'm right though.

Now, am I the kind of person who thinks the Souls games should have an easy mode?
Not really. If you don't like the games as is, I highly doubt making it easier is going to get you to like it more. As a matter of fact, it'll probably just highlight the things that made you dislike it in the first place. Besides, if they did add an easy mode, you do realize they'd just call the current difficulty "Easy mode", and then add a new normal mode which is even more difficult.
