Dark Souls is basically just Castlevania II: Simon's Quest, remade for a modern audience. It even has the same useless and cryptic dialogue, washed out palette, clunky controls, and a currency which makes no sense.
The only differences are that Dark Souls is in 3D, and technically gives you an infinite supply of healing potions. Which brings me to my next point, how can anyone call a game which gives you an infinite amount of replenishing healing potions “hard”? The first word that comes to my mind is “easy”.

Talking about difficulty, Dark Souls isn’t a hard game. Sure, it doesn’t hold your hand every step of the way, but that doesn’t make it a hard game. The fact that people are calling it hard just because it doesn’t hold your hand is probably the main reason why games hold you hand so much nowadays. You lot literally have no idea what to do unless something is carefully guiding you!

As for whether Dark Souls is a good game or not… I wouldn’t know. I didn’t like it because it’s not my type of game. I could give a list of reasons why it isn’t my type of game, but I doubt anyone would want to listen to that opinionated pile of rubbish. From what I played though, it does seem like it would be the type of game my sister would be into, so I may try to get her to play it.

My older brother plays dark souls. I don't so I can't say anything about it one way or the other.
