You already know what this is about, so I'm not going to include any awkward introductions. Let's get into it.
Years ago, I was a tiny guy with no self confidence. I was chubby, miserable, and because of my mentality, I thought I looked pretty ugly. I always played games on a low difficulty because I thought, that it would make me feel better about myself. And holy crap, was I mistaken. I had just got my Xbox 360 at the time, and I regret never buying Dark Souls I or playing it, but I did get both versions of Dark Souls II.
I didn't understand anything about it, I just thought the trailer looked good. So I earned up some money, sold my older games and so forth, and then I bought it.
When I first clicked new game, I was really puzzled, as to where the options for difficulty was; nevertheless, hoping I had got my money's worth, I carried on to see what the gameplay would offer. Man, it was the most exilerating experience since... ever! I dare say, I had more fun playing it than Skyrim. Yeah sure, some of you might not like the fact, that I am comparing the worst game on the Souls series to Bethesda's jewel, but it's what it felt like. I was punished, over and over and over again, until I was ripping my hair out with my bare hands.
Even though, especially with my anger managements, the game offered monumental proportions of raging and screaming, something had just - clicked. Inside me. After a while I started thinking differently. More efficiently, calmer, and I found that everything felt at peace. I wan't worried about getting killed again, about exams, homework or any of that. In some way, it helped me to cope with all the issues I had ever had. Confidence, anger, social anxiety, stress. I had just never felt so good.
I then started to set my mind to completing it. Scouring the levels for hidden items, checking every corner for enemies, and every wall for invisible entrances. Guess what? I died. Over, and over, and over. And it always made me feel so alleviated. Once I had conquered the challenge, I remember how much, drastically, I had changed.
I was fitter, after actually pushing myself through in my swimming sessions, my grades were getting better, along with my behaviour and respect towards others, and I hadn't had any of my temper tantrums in over a month. It all felt so quiet inside my mind, blank, but in a good, fulfilling way. That's how I fell in love with Dark Souls; what's your history with Dark Souls? Tell me below!
What is that supposed to mean?
