Is Dark Souls a work of art? In my opinion, it is. However, I feel that the best way to explain to others, and even myself, as to the way in which it is would be to debate another on the way in which it is art. I am taking the position of "pro", and the opponent will have "con". The opponent may go first. Any opponent is welcome, provided they know at least some information about Dark Souls. This debate is about Dark Souls 1, not 2, and any mentions of the sequel will be disregarded entirely.
P.S. You must also be completely gramatically correct, barring the occasional typo or misuse of extremely obscure grammatical rules.
Dark Souls is a satanic game from the fiery pits of hell. They practice worshiping satan, possessions, and murderous acts in the name of Bob Ross himself. This game should be removed from the shelves, soaked in holy water, then soaked in gasoline, then burned in front of the entire community to show that satan is the worst thing in the universe, and that he should not distribute his satanic acts to the world.
This is as serious as Marilyn Monroe on drugs. Dark Souls led my cousin to Satanism, eventually leading up to his possession by demons, and eventually led to his death during his exorcism. Dark Souls is an extremely Satanic game, and should be burned at the stake for Satanism and witchcraft.
