everything in dark souls is dark and sad it's depressing to watch

@Siphonay I don't think that's the case. Wasn't the whole basis of DS to be an analog of the struggle against depression?

@ark @Siphonay I take it a stealth introduction to existentialism. The world is fucked no matter what you do, nothing means anything unless you attach meaning, and your only choices are to either give up or continue a struggle that ultimately proves futile because you end up back where you started.

But you could also treat Dark Souls as an introduction to Buddhism. You don't play this game; you suffer it. And the only way to end your suffering is to let go and stop playing.
