Lots of people arguing about this choice but dont forget what our darling Fire Keeper says in 3. After you give her eyes she relays a vision of all encompassing darkness. And in that darkness, motes of light appear. Hundreds, then thousands, then millions. I think those lights are humans lighting their OWN fires, their own flames, coming into their own in a world without gods.
Gwyn created the dark sign to imprison humans, to keep them from inheriting the true power of their Lord Soul, theirs by right of descent from the Furtive Pygmy. And the cycle of linking the flame is the direct cause of suffering for millions of years; the dark sign and the curse of undeath ensured a steady stream of potential sacrifices without letting on what was happening, imprisoning them or sending them on quests to try and maintain his kingdom. He destroyed the race of dragons for no apparent reason other than to take control of the surface; we're never lead to believe the dragons do more than just EXIST before he and the others started a war. The flame, its self, comes across as being parasitic in nature, requiring more powerful souls as sacrifices to keep the cycle of misery going.
Gwyn is dead. His world is a shambling corpse worse than any hollow. Choose the greater good; let the fire fade.
