If you follow me in enough places, then you've probably heard me talk about Dark Souls. I've been obsessed with the game for like five years now, and I never shut up about it; even though I'd never actually beaten it until a few weeks ago--along with Bloodborne and Demon's Souls. Now that I can confidently call these my favorite games of all time, and I feel I have a firm grasp on what's cool about them, I figured I'd make a video (or maybe several?) about some aspects of the games which I don't think have been fully covered by the million other analytical videos on them.
If you haven't played either game, this video should still be entirely comprehensible, as I explain everything you need to know to get my point. If you do plan on playing them, then be aware that there are some spoilers--but considering how much you have to do to piece the stories of these games together, the spoilers most likely won't change anything. I hope you enjoy this one, as I was pretty happy with the script--I wrote it with a little bit more of a flowery storytelling bent than usual, which I think worked out well, and would love more opportunities to try.
