But if the PC is the ultimate gaming hardware, you can reasonably ask, what is the ultimate game? that, according to golden joystick, is FromSoftware’s 2011 ARPG Dark Souls, which beat out other contenders in the fan-voted category including Doom, Half-Life 2, Minecraft, Halo: Combat Evolved, Grand Theft Auto 5, Portal and Space Invaders.

“Thank you so much for receiving such an amazing award,” Dark Souls director Hidetaka Miyazaki said in a statement. yahoo japan (Via Google translation) “It’s still incredible that the user has chosen from the nominated works, but I think it’s a great honor.”


Miyazaki paid tribute to his colleagues at FromSoftware, saying that when newcomers to the studio began working on Dark Souls, what is now “the core of the latest effort, the Elden Ring”.

“I was very impressed with this award,” he said. “We will continue to make interesting and valuable games. I hope you look forward to it. Thank you!”

It’s interesting to remember, in light of this award, the original release of Dark Souls on PC, the ready to die version, was actually quite a mess. FromSoftware described it as “strictly a port from the console version” prior to launch, with no optimizations for PC, and they weren’t kidding: among other issues, it was released at 720p/30fps at launch. But it was closed, which it certainly was in 2013 as well. not quiet. Modding hero Peter “Durante” Thoman quickly released a patch that did away with those graphical limitations, but it still suffered from crappy sound and brutally poor mouse-and-keyboard controls. It wasn’t until the 2018 release of Dark Souls Remastered that we got an out-of-the-box experience that didn’t feel like it was deliberately calculated so that we could all buy PS3s.

Hopefully the rollout of FromSoftware’s latest Souls: Elden Ring is currently set to arrive sometime in February 2022.
