Jimquisition happens every Monday!

Dark Souls sold over two million copies and is a bonafide success. Tomb Raider sold over three million copies and is a disappointing failure. Wut?

Different projects obviously have different standards for success, but the divide between Dark Souls and recent releases by Capcom and Square Enix is staggering. What's gone wrong, that selling over three million copies of a game can be deemed a letdown? And what has Dark Souls done right?
