How Dark Souls’ Tutorial Communicates More Than Just Controls

I’ve been here before. Its tricks and traps are notched into my mind and its hidey-holes leap out as if illuminated by spotlights. I’ve stalked these lonely halls with a dozen different avatars and now familiarity is etched into the Undead Asylum’s sodden brickwork. As I trudge through Dark Souls’ foreboding prologue I’m steered by a sense of grim déjà vu. Where I once blundered ham-fistedly, I now carve a bloody trail with flexes of muscle memory and precisely timed ripostes. I’ve grown since I first came here, and escaping the Asylum’s cloying grasp has become effortless: a molehill worn down from a mountain, but it wasn’t always this way... (Dark Souls, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I don't know which is the better game, the originator Demon's Souls or the vast sequel Dark Souls.

I don't think Dark Souls was a sequel. Both games are different in terms of story. Still, both are amazing games.

Yet Patches is in both games

Demon's Souls atmosphere puts it way above any contender.

That doesn't mean it's a sequel though. Biggs and Wedge appeared in several Final Fantasy games.
