Dark Souls is the successor to the hit PlayStation 3 game known as Demon's Souls. It will follow a similar gameplay style, but it will be more challenging and more expansive.
|9||Challenge is a word that's often missing when looking to describe video games these days, with almost every experience being developed so that your average consumer can complete it without too much trouble. Some games even have their difficulty set so that it's impossible to lose. Demon's Souls on the other hand didn't even have a difficulty setting and it was designed so that you'd lose on a regular basis - death was all part of the experience. Many people thought it was doomed to fail for that sole reason, people thought consumers would be turned off by its punishing difficulty. They thought that they were so accustomed to success that they wouldn't want to be tested. Those who thought that were wrong, and the fact that we now have a spiritual successor shows that more than anything else. |
