What an amazing job VaatiVidya did again. Spectacular! You know, sometimes I think the souls games were just hacked together as a series of fights and locations, and I ask myself why I like them… I answer because of the locations and i suspect the story was put in as an afterthought… but when I see his amazing work in this field I am amazed, and while not knowing if it’s all just in the eyes and magical mind of the beholder (of which he is a most spectacular one), I do agree that there was there at least one person who was a good writer and put some soul and twisted stories into the fabric. Also his talk about how he made his videos condensed, 5 instead of 30 minutes out of respect for your audience… man, that is such amazing work ethic and i guess why i keep coming back to his interpretations of the lore.
Ive stumbled upon some quite smart and deep critiques from people who actually love the game and the series, thought I’d share:
and this video has some interesting points too, despite being at times somewhat annoying:
A lot of respect for the storyteller’s point of view, and a lot of respect for the souls games. To be honest to me they seemed quite short on story and narrative, yet their world seems quite full of it, which is quite fascinating, this almost non-verbal richness of lore.
