Dark Souls is a game that almost needs no introduction. It’s riveting, intriguing, and a fear-inducing game that requires intense focus. No wonder, it has become one of the most hyped video games in the past decade. There’s no denying its a hard game to play (especially if it’s the first time you play a “Soul” game), but have to play a Souls game to understand why it is so unique and popular.
