Right, this is a bit of a weird one. Dark Souls is a beloved game, with Demon's Souls, Dark Souls II and Bloodborne pretty popular as well. But why? What are these games all about? What's so great about them? Why hasn't everyone played them?

I've come up with an idea for a thread, inspired by baffling comments from the Balls Man, Ping Pong Pengers and Athrernoon Delight. I want everyone to post a spoilerbox with their thoughts on Dark Souls: what the game is like, why it is popular, what you like or dislike about it, why you did or did not want to play it. But you're not allowed to read anybody else's until you've posted yours! The purpose of this is to see how disparate the perception of Dark Souls from an outsider is from the actual game.

Hoping to hear not just from Jay and Jas and other fans, but from people like Balladeer and Athrun, who only have second-hand knowledge, people like Mas who bounced off, and people like Muss who completed it but didn't rate it as highly. I'll go first.

DO NOT READ UNTIL YOU'VE WRITTEN:

Yeh, alright.

But I should warn you...:
 


I've typed much more than the only person in this thread (thus far) who's actually played the games. Laughing

If I haven't responded to anything addressed to me, by the way, assume I've just said "Fair enough!"

The "fair enough" clause applies to a lot of what Drunka said (still not entirely convinced by the third point, guess I'd need to find that out for myself), but I want to focus on this part:

I'm playing by the rules and not reading what you've written beforehand, but if you're being mean to each other I'll be very cross...:
 

And what I think about some of what you wrote:

I totally get your Undertale point Jim, and that's even as a big fan of the game itself. A mere mention of it in a gaming video stirs up the hive - both its radical fans and its most ardent haters. Souls is much the same, I think.

Ah, I'm with ya now!:
 

Incidentally, two of my friends have just got into Undertale, so I'm being subjected to that also. Fun times.

Out of interest, did you ever get any further in Undertale, Balla?

I haven't seen too much Undertale chat, to be honest. I never delve into comments sections and this is my only gaming site, so I guess I'll keep it that way.
