In South Korea, Dark Souls has a following and fans. You'd think the makers of popular mobile game Blade would know they couldn't get away with ripping it off.
Dark Souls is easily the most revolutionary and infuential game of the previous generation
How can it be influential when the only game since then taking inspiration from the series is Lords of The Fallen? If it was influential, we would have much more copy cats
huh,are u clueless?what about Watch Dogs,Deep Down,Blade...
Right. Dark Souls shouldn't be revolutionary because it's a hard assed game. That's just silly.
@theshredded I see Deep Down, but how the hell did Watch Dogs get influenced by Dark Souls? That's more like GTA / True Crime / Sleeping Dogs. Also, if you're going to say a Souls game is influential, at least mention the one that started it all, Demons Souls. And as for Blade, not sure about gameplay seeing as it's a smart phone game and not for consoles, but the advertisements "copied" it scene for scene...
@rdgneoz3 I think he's referring to the invasion aspect of watch dogs and dark souls.
this is one of the dumbest comments ive seen in a while. my god man.
*Demon's Souls* Being invaded for the first time :-O
I already saw various screenshots of both the advertising and the actual game, and it's BLATANTLY ripping off Dark Souls. I can't blame them, the Souls games are arguably some of the absolute best of the last generation, so you can do a lot worse when choosing what to rip off, but jeez, dial it down a notch. This is beyond ripping off and it's straight-up plagiarism.
Dark souls is the best best game i have played in my life
It's a mobile game maker, what would you expect?
Of all the games to rip off, you can't blame them for picking Dark Souls.
thats messed up
Why does it seem like people forget Demon's Souls came first... Anyway ripping off a game is a sad excuse for game development. Being inspired is one thing but its clearly taking from it.
They don't forget, simply Dark Souls is more widely played and known probably due to better marketing and being a multiplatform title.
Still people credit Dark Souls when Dark Souls wouldn't of even been a thing if it weren't for the popularity of Demon's Souls. Even journalists credit wrong and it's awful they would make a mistake like that.
