Yeah I just think that your definition of intrinsic motivation differs from mine. Considering that there is little to no external motivation to play the game beyond to get better at it/beat it makes it inherently all about intrinsic motivation.

Perhaps that's enough intrinsic motivation for you personally. Plenty of games are insanely hard and require lots of play to get better. But for me, it also has to have a world worth inhabiting. If Dark Souls did not have the atmosphere and lore that it did, I don't think it would have been worth getting better at!
