For those who don't know, Demon's/Dark Souls is a Grim Fantasy Action RPG, infamous for it's difficulty.
I LOVE these games. In an era of spoonfeeding, these titles really stand out. They're a real challenge. They Teach the player Intuitively, encourage the player to Think Critically, and the Gameplay strongly reinforces it's Central Themes.
It has a story and deep sub-plots that you have to really think about and figure out, through limited character interactions and connecting implied clues, rather than it being overtly explained to you.
Though it is graphically and in some ways overtly Dark, Dark Souls especially has some very subtle Psychologically horrific things happen in this game that are just... wow. Right in the Humanity. But are very easy to miss if you just "play the game" without thinking about it. It's Meta as pineapple.
Truly a work of art. <3
Have any of you tried it before?
Are there any Souls vets here as excited for Dark Souls II as I am? ^-^
