Dark Souls has been in the top 10 games for 2 years now

I find it amazing, because Dark Souls is one of my favorite games. I think it's nice to see that other people enjoy actual games with detail, and lore, and gameplay, and not just a mindless appeal to the masses that is Call of Duty.

But I am curious, is it because everyone in the GameFaqs community are a bunch of hippies who hate the mainstream like me? Or am I the only one who actually like this game and secretly you all make fun of those who play Dark Souls because "no body heard of it" like my real life friends do. T-T

Crazy right? I think it is in the top 10 because of the high replay-ability and esoteric story line.

And it is just a really good game.

No, it's like 40 days away from achieving that

Is it really that popular though? I only know three people IRL that have played the game constantly

I started a new game and I dont see any summon signs anywhere for my SL27. It seems like CoOp has dropped significantly or everyone is just doing twink invasions

Really?! I noticed the opposite. New players everywhere who require hand-holding through the whole level.

That's what I'm saying. Is it really that popular? I personally only know one person who plays and loves Dark Souls. All my other friends hate it because it's hard, and literally spend all their time playing CoD.

Is the Dark Souls community bigger than I thought? Or is the GameFaqs community smaller than I thought, and a majority like Dark Souls?

And I've been playing Dark Souls since day one. I've noticed no difference to the online. It's still as lively as ever.

I personally just finally got back into it after beating it back when it came out. Started a new character and I've almost played through NG again and the additional content as well.

The gameplay, especially for PvE, is quite solid and versatile. It's also actually kinda relaxing playing the game when you know what to expect.
