Why I’m not here for Dark Souls
The following is an article I published on a now-defunct gaming website a few years back. I was reading through some of my pieces for the site and thought they might be worth republishing on my own. I’ve since completed Dark Souls, along with Demon’s Souls, Dark Souls 2, and Bloodborne, and despite the fact that I can’t deny I enjoy these games, I think my criticisms here remain pertinent.
The tl;dr of it is kind of that I think Dark Souls demands an unhealthy time commitment of the player for it to actually be enjoyable.
