Dark Souls

Before I begin, I feel I should explain how story and plot works in Dark Souls, and how the community fits into all of this. The main complaint by the general user of Dark Souls seems to be that the plot is thin and makes no sense. It sounds like a cop-out, but if that is how it comes off then I think the entire point of the game has been lost on the user. I do not have the direct translated quote, but the director of Dark Souls said in an interview once that he wanted the story of his game to mirror the bonfires present in-game, for it to be discussed, discovered, explored and retold in the way that one would tell stories of their travels, or of travels told to them, around a campfire.

Amazingly, Dark Souls has ended up gathering and collecting the most incredible bunch of thinkers and storytellers any community could hope to have. The quality of discussion and debate that has gone on in YouTube comments, Reddit threads, forum posts, IRC channels, Facebook groups, in-person and across the globe is second to none. You know something is truly unique when it spawns intelligent and thoughtful dialogue from the comments of YouTube users!
