Dark Souls

If Saints Row: The Third hadn't come out swinging in November to completely dominate any Game of the Year thoughts in my mind, Dark Souls would have been the easy pick. From Software really nailed the formula that was first introduced in 2009's Demon's Souls, delivering an open-world RPG that is as challenging as it is satisfying. Now, PC gamers want in on that action.

An online petition urging Namco Bandai to port Dark Souls to PC platforms launched last week, and 66,000 names have signed up so far in support of it. There's no announced plan from the publisher to move forward with a port, but a post on Namco's community forums (via Joystiq) reveals that the petition has caught the notice of some higher-ups within the company.

"I honestly wasn't expecting such a massive support," Namco forums administrator shoupinou writes in a forum post carrying a "Damn you are amazing!" header. "My boss(es) even came to talk to me about this, after it explodes all around the world."

"If you wanted to have the attention of Namco Bandai Games, now you have it. The future is in your hands, and I hope you will keep supporting this. I make a personal objective to make sure every relevant people in Namco Bandai Games is in touch with this formidable effort. Great Thanks!"

As I said, hardly confirmation that PC port is in the works. But Namco is aware of your desires, petition-signing PC gamers, and there's now significantly more hope than there was a week ago that a PC release might happen.
