The expansion of the gaming industry has had the unavoidable result of a ‘dumbing down’ trend, i.e. the games have become increasingly less challenging. New audience hence new interfaces signify that the games have to be even more fair, accessible and friendly – not punishing and cruel. However, Dark Souls promises to be uncompromising and tough. Marked as ‘the toughest game ever made’, Dark Souls has continuously been fetching dozens of glowing reviews, and the game’s wide popularity establishes that there’s a market out there for hardcore gaming.
So why is the game so terribly addictive? Developers quote that it’s developed around one of the most rewarding, tightest real-time spells and swords combat systems of gaming. Though the progression is slow, the achievements are genuine, with the game so amazing that the player will be literally dying to glimpse the next gloomy dungeon or sweeping vista. It’s a crushingly difficult game, but is playfully so. Well, any sort of game which allows the player to invade another player’s game online to permanently kill the main character can only be termed sadistic, and rightfully so.
