With the advent of instant data and information mining, getting bonfire video game stories is becoming a rarity. It’s hard to spread rumors that can be fact-checked right away, and even legitimate mysteries tend to be deconstructed fairly quickly. But the beauty of modding is that it doesn’t have to be real. You can make it is real.
That’s what I really like boring king hahafast but effective new Ethen Call movies, showing areas of the game you may not have seen before. “Saint’s Descent” sees players descend a seemingly endless pitch-dark staircase where there is finally a pit.
Players go down the hole, of course, because now we’ve learned it You missed important content on Elden’s Ring if you don’t throw yourself into every abyss. I won’t spoil the rest.
Like I said, it’s a simple story that’s still a good thing to do, partly because it’s not a wild thing. It seems believable, and some legitimate viewers thought it was real before being told it wasn’t.
King bore haha has actually made a whole playlist of “spooky mod” videos and mods like this, but for older ones dark soul games, if you want to see them. What struck me was some very normal situations that suddenly took a turn, like being stuck in a claustrophobic elevator. Something like that can actually happened to someone, maybe by sheer bad luck, but no one would believe you, would they? The alternative can be just as scary: a never-ending fall. This is very nice!
The fictional aspect here is essential to enjoyment, in a way. When news broke that Elden’s Ring a mystery wall that takes 50 hits to break down, it rips the internet. Who would naturally discover the anomaly? Why would they do such a thing? Miyazaki, you devil!
Out came the investigators, to take a closer look. That’s when we found out it was actually just a glitch, it never took 50 hits, and there wasn’t actually anything particularly interesting “hiding” behind the wall. The moment was cool while it lasted, but anyone coming in now can’t recreate the feeling of not knowing what the hell was happening when it was an enigma. Now we just tell each other it’s a glitched wall.
Sure, I can tell you that this Elden Ring video isn’t real, but that’s not the point, is it? For a moment, you get sucked into a different reality where evoking a feeling is all that matters. It reminds me a lot of modern emergence Super Mario 64 scary story. Anyone with critical thinking skills will be able to conclude that such a complex story never really happened, or that we would have heard of it long before. We take out the popcorn in the same way.
