Dark Souls is a action role-playing game developed by FromSoftware and published by Namco Bandai Games. A spiritual successor to FromSoftware’s Demon’s Souls, the game is the second installment in the Souls series. Dark Souls takes place in the kingdom of Lordran, where players assume the role of a cursed undead character who begins a pilgrimage to discover the fate of their kind.

Dark Souls has been cited as one of the greatest video games ever made. Critics praised the depth of its combat, intricate level design, and use of flavor text. However, the game’s difficulty received mixed reviews, with some criticizing it for being too unforgiving.

What can I say about Dark Souls that hasn’t been written before? I mean this game is the reason for a complete genre of a few dozends of “Soulslike” games within the last decade. I’m really glad to finally have found the patience to finish this game after Elden Ring. And boy I was not disappointed – one of the greatest game to date if you sink into it.
