OSNews, Generic OSes Change platforms. Whenever you can. Ever since I got into computing, I've lived according to a very simple adage: change platforms all the time. For reasons I won't go into, the importance of this adage was reaffirmed today, and I figured I'd share it with you all - and hopefully, get a few of you to follow this adage as well.

Oh my God, you should try another japanese RPG — Dark Souls.

Personally I think 90% of games are retarded and a time waste. But this game is simply amazing. So far it's the only game that actually made me feel emotions for NPCs. And it was the first fantasy world outside of books that I got drawn into.

And it achieved all that with less dialog or written lore than first Mass Effect scene. That's why I liked it - it's just a very solid framework with one or two key genius details that we get about characters, places and for the backstory we must fill with our own deductions. And our own deductions are not idiotic like Bioware's writings. ;) I mean Wolf Sif is just a wolf, but I felt sad for killing him. In any other game I would kill everyting FER EXPERIUNC POINTS, but I spared Crossbreed Priscilla when she asked to leave her alone. ;)

It's also a game that doesn't fuck around. Like in other games when someone says "despair" or start to panic, it just makes me facepalm and annoys, because game developers blow and they cannot portray any sense of doom, they just say that. But when you play Dark Souls and see "Despair" written by another player in Blighttown, you just nod and start crying. Atmosphere is amazing, it feels like a "place", not just some random colors in background.

play it

If memory serves, he actually wrote a review on this site for its predecessor, Demon's Souls.
