"Dark Souls is a super challenging, and oftentimes punishing, experience. But it's oh so satisfying to play. Typically I'd be frustrated if I spent 14 hours on a game and only cleared out two major bosses, but for Dark Souls that insane challenge ends up being part of the fun. It can be frustrating, and can certainly cause you to hurl a few expletives at your TV. It can even be cheap at times, forcing you into long attack animations that end badly when a second foe comes hurtling at you from a blind spot. And you will die, a lot. But you'll keep coming back for more, and that constant need for improvement is what makes Dark Souls so much fun for me."
