There are a lot of games that I wish I could go back and replay again for the first time… Wind Waker, Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 4, Pokemon Red, Fallout 3, etc. However, Dark Souls is probably the game that I feel that way towards the most. Not only was it the first game I got all the achievements for, but also the game that I really felt myself immersed in. I kinda got that from Wind Waker, but not in the same way that I was …am… with Dark Souls. I have, probably, around a couple thousand hours in this game, and I’m still putting more in. A couple weeks ago I told my friends I was bored with Dark Souls and was taking a break from it, and that was true. However, I wasn’t bored of the game itself, I was bored of how methodical I had gotten at the game. Sure, I changed things up from time to time doing challenge runs and speed runs and all that shizzle whizzle, but the way I /played/ had gotten boring to me. No, I’m not saying that I had gotten so good at the game or some bullshit like that. I still make stupid mistakes… a lot. It’s just the way that I thought about the game as I was playing it… it got stagnant. So I took a break from praising the sun every day and played something else… Resident Evil 4, Ocarina of Time, Fallout New Vegas, Super Ghouls and Ghosts, Team Fortress 2 and a bunch of other games. When I finally sat down to play Dark Souls again, it was almost like I was playing a new game. Almost.
