Paul Verhoeven of MMGN: From Software want to see you suffer. In fact, that's exactly what players want, need and deserve from a good Souls experience. When the Prepare to Die DLC came out, every horrifying new surprise gave me a genuine rush. I WANTED to get spanked into the dirt. Forget Fifty Shades of Grey; Dark Souls is the ultimate sub/dom experience. Only, you know. With less nakey.
