I’ll admit that this is a bit of a cop out. As someone who’s obsessed with Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls, of course I’m going to swoon over another sequel, even it it’s more of the same. But when I look at the games I actually played at the show, and think of which one I’d most like to keep playing right now, Dark Souls II is the one. Simple as that. I hope my lingering concerns about the game are laid to rest, and that the series’ brutal difficulty and minimalist storytelling are worth experiencing for a third time.
Release Date: March 2014 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360
