this game really captured my fascination when i first saw it, and it (and its sister games) really delivered on being an object of my fascination ever since. legit the only one that has the best ring in the series. you know the one 😏


The world design is cool at first, but it gets pretty grating when you have to do a decent amount of back tracking. The actual level design isn't anything special either, and the, uh, not very good second half really bring the game down. Also the boss design ranges from downright unacceptable (bed of chaos) to pretty mediocre, with the two exceptions being gwyn and artorias, who are actually pretty decent. Experiencing DS1 for the first time is pretty special though, so I would recommend playing it.


its hard to not give something a 5 when you beat it 20 times in one summer


Dark Souls is the most unique game i've ever played, because it can be a masterpiece just as well as it can be exruciatingly awful. This is why i'd recommend this game to anyone, because it is an experience unlike anything else.


The kind of classic where even the things that are objectively bad about it are somehow good again just because they're a part of history. It's not as hard as people make it out to be, just pay attention to spacing and animations.
