Twitch streamer uses dance pad to finish Dark Souls 3 with level 1 character

The Dark Souls series is notorious for its difficulty, but players no longer have any excuse for giving up, after a Twitch streamer was able to beat Dark Souls 3 with a level 1 character while using a dance pad as her controller.

While Dark Souls 3 is easier compared to its predecessors, it remains challenging enough to frustrate players ranging from beginners to veterans of the series. Twitch streamer Luality, however, was able to beat the game using a dance pad, which should make most Dark Souls 3 players question their skills with a normal controller.

Making the achievement even more impressive is that Luality completed Dark Souls 3 with a level 1 character. While it is possible to deal significant damage through weapon upgrades, removing the benefits of leveling up is a pretty severe limitation, especially since most players need every advantage they can get to beat the game.

Luality, however, is not most players, as seen in the clip above of her beating Soul of Cinder, the game’s final boss, with relative ease. She even completed Dark Souls 3 while apparently cosplaying as Final Fantasy VII‘s Tifa Lockhart, which is appropriate given how she made things look so easy.

Dark Souls trilogy and Bloodborne

The Dark Souls trilogy is part of Digital Trends’ list of the best video games to play while stuck at home. The games are available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, with Dark Souls Remastered also available on the Nintendo Switch. In addition, players can also look into spiritual successor Bloodborne, which is a PlayStation 4 exclusive.

Players, however, are advised not to use dance pads in their first runs for these games.

The best games like Dark Souls
the surge 2

FromSoftware has made many, many games before 2009's Demon's Souls and the 2011 spiritual successor Dark Souls, but for the majority of gamers, this series was their first exposure to the developer. Since then, the series has grown and expanded to the point where it has become something of its own genre dubbed Souls-likes. Gamers fell in love with the new, brutal game design these Souls games provided, and although FromSoftware has been able to pump out one of these games almost every two years or so, it wasn't enough to satisfy the hunger for more experiences like Dark Souls.

Each game on this list will have something familiar to fans of Dark Souls, but also puts its own unique spin on the genre to make it stand out as more than just a simple clone. If you've played the series to death and are looking for a new challenge, check out these picks for the best games like Dark Souls.

Pascal's Wager

Difficult and reflex-heavy games like Dark Souls might not seem like the best fit for a mobile platform, but technology is improving to the point that this is, perhaps, no longer true. TipWorks' action-role-playing game Pascal's Wager is looking to prove naysayers wrong, and with the power of the iPhone 11, it might succeed.

Shown during Apple's special event on September 10, Pascal's Wager features a dark fantasy that is extremely similar to From Software's original Dark Souls, but rather than create your own character, you can pick and switch between several of them to best suit your situation.
