Heaven Helps the Man

The Grand Theft Auto Series really has incorporated some amazing music along the way.

The Value of Dark Souls

Dark Souls is a dark, difficult game. You can argue all day about whether or not it truly deserves its accolades as a fantastic gaming experience or the most difficult game ever, I do not really care. The value of this game for me is in what it demands from the player. It isn’t a Halo or a Call of Duty where a campaign can be completed in around 10 hours, instead the game demands patience, memory, perseverance and an inquisitive spirit. For someone who doesn’t aggressively chase it the game could be seen as not even having a proper story! However, for someone who suffers from clinical depression it provided a unique outlet that very appropriately simulated the very personal, very dark struggle against those debilitating thoughts. For that reason Dark Souls is one of the greatest games ever.
