From The Niche, To Mass Appeal In Gaming

Adam, from eGamer, writes, "Initially, when news broke that Dark Souls 2 would be focussing on appealing to the Skyrim crowd, I was struck with a feeling of disappointment that niche game developers like From Software would want to stray away from the challenging formula that made the original Dark Souls such a hit. Other developers who have attempted similar feats have been met with less than stellar success as of late. It’s understandable that developers want to increase the profits that they rake in with each succeeding game, to expand their audience beyond the initial scope and spectrum that the previous game found itself in. But this “streamlining” of a game to suit more broader tastes and sensibilities does come at a cost". (Dark Souls, Dark Souls 2, Dev, Industry)
