    Dark Souls shows the AAA industry how to behave

    Well...Dark Souls doesn't, but Jim does while using Dark Souls/FROM as an example. Anyway, it's Dark Souls related and I found it interesting, so here's a link to a video I saw:

    Thanks for sharing. I found his viewpoint rather interesting.

    That showed up on my Twitter feed like 2 days ago and all I can say is he absolutely nailed it. Some of these gaming companies are more mismanaged than some African economies.

    So much truth in that video.

    Every point he made in that video was great, and similar to points I try to make to my friends when I say that not every game needs to be a Super AAA game. It's like talking to a wall.

    It may just be me, but I love videos that praise Dark Souls.

    I've been in the sales part of the industry for so long I find these information so obvious I consider it a common knowledge.

    I'm glad he said one of the biggest truths about games.
    Graphics aren't everything no matter what anybody tells you. We all want a good game, screw graphics.

    A good game will remain good even after twenty years. Graphically excellent game will remain that only for a year. At best two.
