The Dark Souls games are some of my favorite games released in the last 15 years. If you agree with this statement or are curious about the series, you should check out this video. Dark Souls 1 Story Retrospective from YouTuber, Gingy goes in-depth about why this game is so incredible.

I came into the Dark Souls series late. Dark Souls came out in 2011. My first FromSoft game was Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. I loved the Tenchu games on Playstation 2 and the Xbox 360, so when I saw the trailer for Sekiro, I preordered it right away. Unfortunately, when I was able to play it, I was miserable. I struggled with the very first enemies in the tutorial area. I had to cheese the boss to even move past the tutorial. It was very different from the Tenchu games. It was frustrating because the game was beautiful.

I never beat Sekiro, but it introduced me to one of my favorite games of all time, Dark Souls. I had heard of it before but never had the desire to play it. In 2016, right before Dark Souls 3 came out, my buddy streamed Dark Souls 2 on Twitch to show me how difficult it was. I didn't get it. It didn't pull me in.

Fast forward to 2019 and Sekiro, a truly fantastic game, but not necessarily for me. I fell in love with the world and the challenge, even if it was too difficult for me, and thought I would check out another FromSoft game, Dark Souls. I am glad I did because it introduced me to this beautiful series. From the beautifully created worlds to the fantastical lore, I have enjoyed (sometimes very frustrated) every moment I played.

If you like fantasy and challenging boss fights, do yourself a favor and at least try these games. Maybe you will fall in love with them as I and many others did.
