1up: Most Rewarding Game of 2011

Dark Souls is punishing, vicious, and sometimes mean-spirited. It is a game that presents you with a world that can be freely explored, only to kill you for venturing beyond the confines of safety. And yet, Dark Souls is never unfair. The game gives you the tools you need to survive, and its central concept of treating death as an inevitability to be surmounted rather than a punitive setback allows you to explore, experiment, and eventually achieve mastery.

The story is too old to be commented.

Dark Souls is tied with UC3 in terms of my game of the year!!!!But I've def. Put more time into DS and it is so rewarding everytime you get a new ability or find a new killa weapon or armor!!! Simply love this game and Demon Souls to death!!!!! Great gaming year!!!!
