    Dark Souls

    Dark Souls is an incredibly difficult, immersive, and satisfying game that you'll remember long after it's over.

    In today's age of gaming, calling a game hard and unforgiving is usually said only to condemn it. In fairness, a lot of games rarely ever use difficulty in any creative way. The same can't be said for From Software's l... Read Full Review

    Demon's Souls is harsh and unforgiving, but it's a classic game that must be played to be believed.
