Dark Souls’ success trumps some of the massive beasts you slay in the game. Decades after the launch of the original title, the franchise continues to welcome new players and immerse them in the vast kingdom of Lordran. Much of this can be attributed to the unforgiving difficulty of boss fights and incredibly responsive and efficient sword fighting mechanics.
