Well, nearly after a year after the game has come out I decided to give it a go. Those who know me know I'm really bad at games and am into hand-holdy feel-good romps. But I have to say that Dark Souls is amazing. In a world where third-person action means jamming on buttons to do insane combos, it's so refreshing to have meaningful combat with consequences. It took me almost ten hours just to get through the Undead Parish but I feel like I'm much better equipped to play the game now. It's also highly exciting to go through an area a few times, power yourself up, reverse hallow, get some bros, and just wipe out a boss. Yes, I didn't do it on my own, but I feel like I earned the victory through hard work. What a brilliant game.
