    Oddness of Soul Series

    Post by Turin on Tue Mar 13, 2012 1:23 pm

    Lately im been thinking the odd feeling around these two games. When i finished demon souls, feelings of sadness and grief overwhelmed me. i couldnt play anything after finishing it for a long time. Until i saw an ad showing that its sequel would come out. Instant feeling of warmth and general feel-good surrounded me. Now when playin dark souls, after defeat of Nito, Four Kings, and Seath, i dont want game to end. I rather wander around, strenghtening my character, leveling up. I have started to think, that optimal level cap of 120, why should I obey it? What if I boost my character as high as possible and start to slaughter all sin-makers as a darkmoon blade? Or help people as a way of white?

    This or that, these games are diamonds. One special moment that hit me like a club occurred to me when i entered ash lake. How in heck FROM coders have managed to create atmosphere in there? Just the background music there keeps me returning to those shores. Many times I have just stood there, listening that grief melody, staring the spot where Hydra used to be. And the clamps in there, aggressive, their insides full of skulls. Amazing.

    Like I said, no game have not made me this kind of feeling. It feels kind of " soul " around it wnen you turn it on. Feeling that every other game lacks, what i own. No Wipeout, no Dragon Age, no Super Stardust. Those lack something. I would like to physically see the people behind the Soul Series. True coder gods, i would say.

    For me these games effects are like some drugs. You get addicted.
    I cannot get excited no game anymore, but Souls.

    yes. the souls series is a master piece and i hope it continues. i can't play any other games like i play darksouls, skyrim is never going to be finished, and i've practically forgotten i have a DS. they just can't compete.

    I honestly wasn't moved by either game, I liked it for it's difficulty and PvP, but found the storyline severely lacking in both games, Dark Souls even moreso.

    Welcome to the Archives, feel free to join us in staring at carvings on coffins for six hours straight and speculating story from it. By the way I'm not making fun of people for doing this, I've literally done it. Be careful, if you search too much for the story you'll go hollow like some of us. :pale:

    I have the same feeling, i have little motivation to pick up any 'new' games so im looking at the moment at getting PS2 games i missed out on, max paynes, okami etc.

    This game has ruined my expectations, hopefully it subsides as i dont wanna just be a enslaved to one series of games, no matter how unique silly

    Midgar, the story is nowhere near the quality of Final Fantasies, but to be honest that's not why this game captivates me silly
