I backed this.. and am not concerned. It'll come out. Hopefully, it'll be good. If not, it was 15 bucks. I've spent more on lunches before. I will survive.

This isn't a post about RPGs. He's saying that the Souls games have a lot of lessons for gaming in general, not that it represents the future of RPGs. I think more classic PC style RPGs could learn…
