Nioh is a nice footnote in the history of video gaming as the first game to truly capture the spirit ofÂ Dark Souls, but FromSoftwareâ€™s revolutionary series deserves a chapter all to itself. I often think that they get misrepresented in discussion, though. Their style often gets talked about less than their challenge, which I find to be horribly backwards,Â and theirÂ difficulty curve is far fairer than most people give them credit for. These are challenging games, but they are not as bad as many have made them out to be.
I mentioned in myÂ Nioh review that I have moved on from games made to emulate Dark Souls, but during their peak, there was nothing like this series anywhere to be found. It was a one-of-a-kind, and it deserves to be respected until the end of time.
â€¦well, maybe notÂ Dark Souls 2.
Dark Souls III: The Ringed City launched for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on March 28.
