How did I miss this? Details here. Unlike some other people, I am not generally given to hyperbole, so when I say that Dark Souls could be my favorite RPG from last gen, this has meaning. You know what? Fuck it. It is my favorite RPG from last gen. Better than Skyrim? Yup. Better than Diablo 3? Yup. Why? Because combat isn’t just mashing buttons. You have to think about what you’re doing. Go in with strategy, then have to execute with exact timing. Plus I consider the challenge of the game, probably one of the most difficult games I’ve ever played, to be one of it’s strong points (other people find the difficulty off putting.) I can’t express how much elation I felt when I finally took down those fucking gargoyles. Those who have not played it cannot consider themselves fans of RPGs. Josh.
