Autistic Boy Bests Us at Dark Souls (VIDEO)

“This is Jaron from Game Front, and we’re playing Dark Souls.”

Those are the words of my new favorite gamer, a 13-year-old high-functioning autistic boy who, inspired by James’ walkthrough, begged his father to play Dark Souls to show us all how easy the game is. His father recorded the ensuing footage and shared it with us.

Check it out:

As the proud father put it, Jaron kicked James’ ass. I have an autistic younger cousin and have seen first-hand the remarkable feats those with autism are capable of.

Good job, Jaron. And thanks for sharing, Jaron’s dad. Sounds like you’re doing a great job as a father.

This video is awesome! I tried to get one of my friends to play it, but he thought it was too hard. If you get good enough equipment and learn the combat mechanics it really isn’t that hard…
