Dark Souls - Retrospective @ Dusty Cartridge

by Couchpotato, 2014-01-29 03:09:12

Dusty Cartridge has a new retrospective for Dark Souls, and calls it the game of this generation. Bold words here is a snippet from the article.

Dark Souls is pure game, in every sense of the word, and is enjoyed by only the most determined players – a fresh change when you consider most games are made to appeal to the largest possible audience, or the lowest common denominator. They’re designed to please soft-core gamers and people who don’t usually game as much as the 33 year old who’s been obsessively funding this industry his whole life. Rarely do they capitalize on the complex potential gaming offers because they’re constantly worried about being accessible. Accessible video games are like accessible novels; they’re easy to pick up, use common language and consider subtlety a negative trait – but they can hardly be called the height of the medium in the same way Dan Brown’s work can be called the height of books.
