Many gamers will remember back when Twitch began playing video games – the original Twitch Plays Pokémon gained massive traction and renown throughout the gaming community, and ever since then gamers have been trying their hand at playing other games via the popular streaming service. But they may have just bitten off more then they can chew.
The latest Twitch Plays attempt is with none other than Dark Souls. That’s right: Dark Souls, a title made famous for its challenge and difficulty. Using certain key words in the chat, viewers can have the character in the game move, roll, attack, or take a plethora of other actions. Of course, with thousands of viewers on at any one time, all of them trying to control the game simultaneously, mistakes are almost inevitable. And in a game as unforgiving as Dark Souls, one has to wonder…is it even possible for them to complete this game?
I guess we’ll all find out together as this experiment continues. Check out the stream’s video above, and let us know what you think of this effort in the comments below!
