    Anyone else get emotional when fighting gwyn?

    Post by Imarreteet23 on Mon Mar 26, 2012 12:27 am

    Just beat Lord Gwyn for the first time. I dont know what it is, but for some reason i was getting really sentimental during the fight. I was kinda reflecting on all my triumphs and losses, the struggle it took to get to this final boss fight, and now it was all about to end in a stunning climax. Maybe i'm just being a big nerd and such, but think it was actually moving and it really effected me.


    Or maybe it was just the music.

    That battle music, mixed with the credit music always gets me feeling a little depressed. The journey is over and I'll never be able to experience the same level of fear and triumph I felt in the first play through..

    I've made about 10 runs of the game now. And just hearing that music makes me shiver. My first time through the fog I remember thinking.. Oh. OH wow! Just listen to this mus-- OH MY GOD A 12 FOOT MAN JUST KILLED ME WITH A FLAMING SWORD!

    Lol, the music is pretty damn good. The best part of DkS (imo) is the suprise, that each new section is new and will kill you in more ways than you can count. I guess im kind of sad that the suprise factor will neve be quite the same.
    @bloodpixel goddam it, cant you see im having an emotional moment! Jk.

    Yes, fighting Gwyn always makes me quite sad, a decent amount of this game can actually depress me. But I think it's amazing that they can convey such emotions, inspiration and projecting emotional feelings is a main cornerstone of art in my eyes, it only confirms in my mind that Dark Souls is definitely a work of art.

    I actually wrote a report on why video games are art. I used Dark Souls as my main example. Hurrah

    I cried a bit when I killed him.
    Then I found out how to PvP.

    The first emotion I felt was profound relief followed pretty darn quickly by incandescent JOY!

    He rather ruins the effect by going BOOOIIIIIING! then landing on your head though :-/

    I also don't get emotional. I'm too busy chopping down trees with my face and lifting weights and being MANLY.

    I gave you rep for this thread because that music always gets me! I think it is one of the coolest melodic ambiences ever, the piano gives and air of calmness amidst the end but also a sense of uplift like you made it to the unreachable, I love it.

    If you can call getting my *** handed to me as a 20 foot tall guy relentlessly pounded me with a flaming sword and then saying in the most bitter sarcasm humanly possible; "wow, that was fun."; "getting emotional" ...then yes. Yes I did get emotional. Lol.

    Seriously, I still have big trouble soloing him, (cue the parry people), but the fight, music, and ambience are all quite emotional.

    I get emotional with anger, after the third or fourth time that he kills me. I've only ever beaten the game with mages and typically they have low health and a high SL so I can't summon anyone... I've always been too scared/annoyed to really pay attention to the music or the fact that I'm beating the game.
