• Dark Souls

1 player / PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC / 04.10.2011

DarkSouls-01

For the past twenty years From Software has struggled to light the world on fire with its staunchly traditional medieval fantasy role-playing games, beginning with King’s Field on the original PlayStation (1994). I remember renting it at the time, and having a difficult time understanding the appeal, particularly with the likes of Final Fantasy VII around. Perhaps it was because of its first-person perspective, or the clunky real-time combat, or maybe it was simply because the technology at the time was incapable of properly rendering the dark fantasy world its designers had envisioned. Times have changed and the company has finally hit pay-dirt with its bleak Souls franchise, which has enthralled millions of players around the world.
