A look at how Dark Souls incorporates player discovery into every aspect of its game design and how these elements all work together and compliment each other. *Contains SPOILERS for Dark Souls*

This video was heavily inspired by Extra Credit's fantastic video 'Exploration In Games - Four Ways Players Discover Joy' which you can find here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FE7lD...

Also check the excellent Dark Souls commentary by Matthewmatosis here:

Finally, a massive thank you to Stormicyde for letting me use the footage of his Dark Souls Playthrough! His clear and concise video descriptions meant sifting through the hours and hours of footage made editing much easier! Check out his playthrough here:
