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.

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.
