The 3 Things I had to Realise Before I 'got' Dark Souls
I am regularly amused by the videos I see that say "Once I realised I had to give in to Stockholm Syndrome I learned to love Dark Souls!" Which means that either, yes, you have to think a bit differently to like it, because it is a bit different. Or it means that the game just isn't very likeable for most people and maybe they should have made it more accessible if they wanted more people to like it. (I reckon they're perfectly happy appealing to the people it does appeal to, considering how successful the franchise is).
