Rate the Game: Week 112

Let's say we close out May with something good, huh? It's Rate the Game: Week 112 and I am your host, M-A-G. We inch ever closer to the end of this ride as we head into the dog days of summer. I recommend staying indoors where it's nice and cool and your favorite console welcomes you to enjoy its wares. Speaking of which, last week's Golden Axe ran through our trial by fire. What does it look like after coming out the other side?



That might have been the fastest editing I've done to the leaderboard in a while. Golden Axe can't muster up enough love and sadly ends up just above the two permanent residents of the bottom of the list. Spot 109 is a rough hand but what can we do?

Well, we can move on to, hopefully, better and brighter things. 14 games still await our judgment so let's not keep them waiting. Bowl, get on down here...

via GIPHY



And there we have it. It's quite the doozy we have on our hands here for Week 112. Your game to rate this time around is the hard-as-dicks hackfest fantasy adventure, Dark Souls! It's got a reputation, no doubt about it, but where on the scale does it land for you? Is it too much to handle or did you dig its atmosphere and RPG gameplay? Tell us all about it and let's close out May with a bang. Until next week!




No matter what may happen to me, just remember Lzzy Hale gave me the bedroom eyes...



...again.

There was really nothing on the market like it, when it came out. Felt so good beating a boss or area for the first time.

They say Souls games are really hard but fair. They hadn't perfected that at this point, because there are some absolute bullshit areas and bosses in this game. Also, there was a whole area of the game that felt rushed and not as well crafted as the rest. They probably hit a deadline.

Man, the art direction and atmosphere though. This is my favorite type of fantasy. Where the world itself feels bleak and oppressive, and merely existing in it fills you with dread.

Oh, thank Lzzy. Destor comes in to save the day and spare me from having to do a do-over for this week. Although I'm not sure helping to inspire a slew of frustrating, hard-as-dicks games is something to praise. We had enough of that shit on the NES and I'm getting too old to be stressed out like that.

given the popularity of the genre there's clearly something to it. elden ring has been selling CoD-esqu numbers after all. its not like anyone is forcing you to play them. its like battle royales. i couldnt care less about them but i dont begrudge their existence.

I honestly can't remember the last game I played on the highest difficulty setting. It might've been Ultimate Alliance 3 but I was leveled up so much from my previous games that it didn't matter. I might go the rest of my life just playing stuff on the beginner setting. Something like Dark Souls would give me an ulcer.
