Is Dark Souls a gateway game that can lead gamers to more hardcore games?

Yes. It has been classified as a Schedule I controlled substance in the U.S.

Well that depends on what really defines a hardcore game.

I used to play softcore games like Final Fantasy when I was younger, but that all changed when I got Demon Souls. I wish it had ended there, but Dark Souls came out and I played that too. Now all I do is power on my NES and play Contra with my eyes closed... The Souls games ruined my life.

Same, man. I was hooked on FarmVille and Cafe Panic, but then I popped this is and have been hooked. I've been importing obscure JRPGS I didn't even know existed, and speed running MGS games on European Extreme while upside down.

It is a gateway game only in that you may feel completely unsastified with other games by result.

Back in the day, I could finish Contra on one man (spreadshot). Those days are over. I stick with softcore stuff as a rule, but this was a little nice wake me up.
