    Dark souls, lets say its amazing because no matter what happens, you want to play again. And the most interesting thing is that this game is so good than can be compared to games like Call Of Duty in therms of best game of the year and those stuff.

    I think you're scraping the barrel saying that the stiffest opposition dark souls has is Call of Duty silly

    They're not comparable, but I meant, 10000 person bought call of duty, and 100 bought Dark souls, still dark can be the best game of the year instead of CoD.

    I'm the kind of person who will hardly play a popular game because it's gameplay is praised. I seriously consider story and atmosphere to be way more important for my enjoyment, so I instead I lean towards games that focus really on character and story development.

    To me DeS and DkS closed that gap, these are games with amazing gameplay, great atmosphere, and really fun lore. Are they perfect? For me, very nearly.
    They take every thing I love seeing in a game a do it really subtly but really well. Characters are well developed, atomosphere is some of the best I have seen, game play is just soild and completely addicting. All of it just comes in a really nicely wrapped package.

    To compare them? Probably Heroes of Might and Magic 3. This is a game with a kind of mashed up story in my opinion, but it has such a nice atomosphere and such addicting gameplay I love love loved it for something like 7 years, haha.

    It is one of the best MMORPG's I've played. Here's to hoping they continue to fix 14 to bring it up to 11's standards. I pray...

    I read they have a new game director for 14. after the next few updates they are making us pay for it again instead of being free to play. they're saying it will be worth the money so I'm hoping that it is better. also read that they brought back the job system. so I'm guessing it's going to bada$$ by 2013.

    I will only say this once: ARE YOU TERRAN?

    I been playing SC2 since launch until October, and all I can say, it's that Terran is OP, I'm a zerg player, and I tell you that win as a Terran against a Zerg requires a lot less skill than winning as a Zerg Against Terran. I don't play it too much right now, but I will be back when the Zerg Expansion comes out silly .

    oh! I've heard of it, but beyond obvious abbreviations of games as famous as WOW or COD then I'm fairly useless.

    I'm still lost though, whats a terran? (guessing it's a planet lazily called after our own) and zerg? tarutaru?.. It's like another language silly

    I love MMO's I love FF beat all of them, but the whole thing about FF14 being brought to the standards of FF11, I couldn't stand that game it made me feel like I was playing with a pile of crap in my hand rofl, by the way on topic, no game is perfect, but I do love DkS.

    FF has got to be my favorite game series.

    I love the DMC games as well.

    DEMON'S SOULS. tops all.

    But to name a few others I got sheer enjoyment out of:
    FF7, Metal Gear Solid series, Legend of Legaia, and Battlefield are all games I've logged many, many, many hours into.
    Starting to get into Minecraft, we'll see how that goes.

    It truly is an amazing game, but RTS don't keep my attention as long as others.

    For me it is.

    There has never been a game I was so addicted to.

    This. And I've been a gamer for 25+ years.

    There is a game called Rakion that I used to just LOVE. It's highly addictive and is really similar to Dark Souls. Too bad it's too difficult to control on a laptop. I recommend at least looking at it if you're a big Dark Souls fan.

    I dont know about 'perfect game' but it certainly hold a place on my top 5 gaming titles of all time !! (in no particular order)

    - Quake 2
    - Diablo 2
    - Counter Strike (Original)
    - Warcraft 2 (dial up modem challenge)
    - Dark Souls

    Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2 holds the trophy at my the top of my list of favourite games. I must have played the RPG through at least 20 times over my lifespan, and it is not a short game by any means. Dark Souls ranks a number four on that list, as well.

    There are so many great things about that game, some of which I didn't realize until I played it 5 times over. I miss games that gave you actually meaningful choices, as opposed to the fake moral choices that Bioware seems to love shoving into their games.

    To those of you who haven't played it, I recommend this Let's Play by Scorchy from the SomethingAwful forums. It's very well done, very informative, and legitimately funny. KotOR2 hasn't aged well, and looks like crap; if you want to avoid playing the game while still wanting to enjoy it then this is way to do it.

    I highly recommend you at least give it a glance. It really is one of Obsidian's best works, and Scorchy's best LP.

    I remember playing online for the first time and this was my only real strategy... I was called everything from a n00b to a cheater and had a few matches where they didn't believe I had just started the game. The lag absolutely killed it for me though because of my college firewall.

    It's tough to say. I'd say it isn't simply based on the fact that it's on the Xbox. I don't see myself playing Dark Souls again in the years to come, but I still install and play games such as Deus Ex, and Baldur's Gate 2 every now and then.

    If Dark Souls was a computer game, then I'd say it's the best ever. But right now, nothing can compare with a game I have played at least once a year since it was released - BG2.

    Well for this gen the other games I played to death are Mass Effect (1) and Dragon Age (1). I went for everything on those games and even trying different character builds and stuff.
    But I'll tell you something, both ME and DA together doesn't sum the total of hours that I already spent in DkS.
    Other games I enjoyed a lot were Diablo, Warcraft 3, Zelda OoT, C&C Generals between others.
    Right now I am playing Skyrim and the difference between Skyrim and DkS is:
    I just want to end Skyrim, already level 28, and kind of feeling bored with it. When I was playing DkS I always kept myself wanting more and more and didn't want it to end.
