Game Luster has posted a new retrospective that takes a look back at Dark Souls.
More information.Few games create a reaction quite like Dark Souls does. For most people, it exists merely as a curiosity, they know only of its gruelling difficulty and as such refuse to touch it for fear of losing their minds. For others, it’s a rite of passage, a true test of your gaming mettle, the ultimate gauntlet, a game fair enough that people can try, but devious enough that those not prepared will give up entirely. Then there are those that just plain love it, a sort of Dark Souls family, comprised either of those a good chunk of the way through the game, or those that have completed it, they rattle off jokes and references to the brilliant Knight Solaire, ensure that they’re always praising the sun, and patiently wait for the next gauntlet From Software throw their way. Usually players begin as the first kind of person and work their way towards the other end of the spectrum, but not everyone makes it, and that’s what makes Dark Souls the game it is.
