Dark Souls III Video Mini-essays

Criticism-focused YouTube channel Errant Signal has posted a new Dark Souls III-themed video, to accompany its first video which examined the game's difficulty. This time, the video examines the community's insufferable "git gud" meme, the way its level design replicates haunted house tricks, the similarities between the series and Castlevania, and the way the series has become synonymous with "difficulty" in gaming press circles, to the detriment of actual critical analysis.

It feels a bit more superficial than the channel's usual fare, but it's still a good starting point for interesting reflections and discussions
