Is Dark Souls 2 as perfect as I once thought it was? Not quite.
Bloodborne wants to catch us off guard, even as it teaches us to always be on guard.
We don't want utopia. We already have that. We need dystopia, something less familiar, something challenging, something painful.
The template of Dark Souls is more sustainable in the long run as an action/horror franchise.
To venture into Dark Souls, even for a moment, is to remind yourself of a universal truth: everyone has the capacity to transcend expectations, even you.
