I am getting towards the end of my first play through Dark Souls, and I can easily say it's one of the greatest games of the last 10 years. I notice however that there is not a ton of people who play it on steam, daily peak is a bit over 2k, so I am wondering why more people haven't played it.

I would call it something like Zelda for adults, with the best parts of Castlevania, God of War and a dash of Elder Scrolls. I think it's original a masterpiece without peer.

While much ado has been made of the port job, with a controller and the easily installed DSfix it quickly becomes the best version of the game.

So I am curious, have you tried Dark Souls yet? If not, how come?

I was thinking of grabbing the ps3 as well, how does the playbase for pvp and co-op compare to the pc?

Well get demons souls first... but the summoning fails a lot less often on ps3. I'm not sure if ps3 version is worth getting if you're used to the highh res 60fps on pc though.

got it on ps3 day it came out. traded next day. I didn't play demon souls. and absolutely HATED dark souls within first 2-3 hrs.

I play games to have fun and enjoy myself. Dark souls made me nerd rage so hard, almost as hard as LoL...which is why I don't play LoL anymore(aside from the garbage community)

I dun know... I find Dark Souls to be easy now. Except Pikachu and Snorlax, they're still insanely hard to solo.
