Eldon from Denkipile: "If you were to ask me to name my top five favorite games, Dark Souls would probably be in that list. When I first played it, I went into it expecting absolutely nothing, but I was blown away by the atmosphere and gameplay. The combination of tough but fair mechanics alongside the lack of handholding and railroading of player decisions was a breath of fresh air in an era of casual triple A titles. When From Software announced Dark Souls 2, you could imagine how incredibly hyped I was. I pretty much went in blind and finished the game completely as well as created a character for PvP. I’ve come to the conclusion that Dark Souls 2, while a great game on its own, is a very disappointing sequel."
