Dark souls made me see bonfires differently...

Every time I see a bonfire or a furnaces I get a warm feeling inside...

Followed by the small pending feeling of doom if I were to walk away...

Darksouls did a great job of making you actually feel like your in a safeplace.

The only two other games I can think of that did that really well was Left 4 dead and Alan Wake.

I think Alan wake did a better job, simply on the fact there would be so much noise and about to die your panicing and panicing but then yo stumble into the light and it is just Silent, nothing but the buzzing of the light and your heavy breathes, and everything was gone.

Dark souls was good. But I still sometiems find comfort in a street lamp.

You never got invaded right before you hit a new bonfire or as you were trying to attune some new magic? Bonfires aren't that safe.
