Dark Souls 2: The Renaissance of Challenge?

With Dark Souls 2 lurking ominously on the horizon like the visage of a particularly menacing dragon, gamers around the world are once again preparing to die. As the sequel to a game famed for its difficulty, the second instalment of Dark Souls (the third in the franchise including Demon’s Souls), promises to torment and terrorise as much as ever before. However, while some gamers are anticipating this new challenge with unbridled glee, others are finding the appeal less obvious. (Dark Souls 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I can make this article shorter. There are many who still love a challenge, plenty to support a game like this. No...it isnt for everyone, but a shift in paradigms doesnt mean that there is no room for a game like Dark Souls. If it isnt for you, dont get it. Theres no reason for every game to be a stroll in the park.

True, but it must be difficult for a publisher to make a game they know a number of people will ignore because it's too difficult. If they added an easy mode, would more people buy it? The essence of the game would be lost, but it would make more money and more money means more Dark Souls in the future. It's a difficult balance to get right!
