Best PS4 Games #6 – Dark Souls 3

Developer: From Software

Synopsis: The chosen Unkindled Ash awakens from the grave, rising to the challenge of restoring the balance of power to humanity. This must be done by conquering the Lords of Cinder, using their great souls to bring about the coming of a new age once more. Players do so by using a variety of weapons, magic spells, miraculous powers, pyromancy flames and jolly co-operation, even tempting fate with a number of ways to interact with phantoms of neighboring worlds.

Why it’s one of the 50 best PS4 games: Dark Souls 3 ends the series with a look back at the greatest hits. Not only do you get to follow the stories of several returning characters, but you also get to bridge the gaps between several Dark Souls universes. Tales of old mix in with the new and comes together to tell a unified story with several possible endings. As the number of weapons and abilities grow, so, too, do the PvP possibilities, including a system that allows for maximum carnage and infinite types of character builds. The stat system even allows for gimmick characters that run up Luck and put an emphasis on quick DPS, allowing for a number of ways to play against the environment and against others.

Dark Souls 3 represents the best of the series, even if it feels a tad familiar. It’s the perfect place to stop, leaving players hopeful for the future of this particular style of action-RPG.
