So happy they mentioned the importance of Dark Souls 2 in this game. But they should have mentioned Aldia.

Gav should be narrating this. I'd say Krupa but Gav's Welsh accent would make this brilliant

You forgot to mention how you break the never ending cycle by usurping the flame in DS3
So it’s basically about Zoroastrianism?

terrible story telling IGN, undermining the madness and true story of dark souls. take a note from vaatividya he tells the story of dark souls so incredibly well. makes you embrace the every aspect you see. you've just fast forwarded the lore and story into a lump of confusing nonsense.

Man I miss dark souls. I wish they make DS4
Caleb Goodman (4 months ago)
I am new to the series so I want to get something out of the way. Should I play Demon Souls first? I heard that Dark Souls is supposed to be the spiritual successor.

You have forgotten one pretty major piece of lore "FIRE CAN ONLY BE FED BY HUMANITY!"
smashingracer72 mc (4 months ago)
For me it’s die die die and more dying and finally learning and completing the game then really no completing as I missed a bunch of optional bosses.

How I explain dark souls is a younger me looking at a game case that looks cool and buying it later destroying the disc because of blight town

Why do you start speaking like an auctioneer for probably the single most important part of the entire video? I feel like this video was intended for people who aren't familiar with the Dark Souls storyline, but was accidentally *made* for people who already know it...

I started playing dark souls remastered and was about to complete the story and u just spoiled everything, im unsubscribing
Claude Olson (5 months ago)
For an IGN video, this actually does a very good job explaining the story. I'm impressed.
Ben Glaser (6 months ago)
Interesting realization I had: the Dark Soul itself is not the source of all the evil Gwyn feared. It is what prevented humans from becoming hollow and was used throughout the game to feed the flame at bonfires. It is when the soul is lost that human becomes a hollow and there are none left to link the fire
LeprinhaGul (6 months ago)
Nice video. clicked on it thinking: omg. ok. lets see the damage. "wow... that was actually pretty good." special thanks to VaatiVidya Oh...

i didn't know that dark souls series actually had a story... ;; i thought it's about rolling, slashing, blocking, drinking and you died !
TristanPR77 (6 months ago)
In other words, the story has no sense at all.
kagetsuki23 (6 months ago)
The story is about survival even for a time. What complicated in it.
vendrick wasnt the only one to purge the undead old iron king also did only more brutally, he owned the undead purgatory

Story: Every couple of years a dead man is risen to cook a hotdog on a fire or let the hotdog get old and soggy eventually leading to a dark age with no warm hotdogs [°~°] ... Close enough

I didn't even know that Dark Souls had a story in the first place. I thought it was made only to make people break their game systems.
biodude zerothree (11 months ago)
I'll be honest, when a dark souls story video from IGN popped into my feed I kinda rolled my eyes like "yeah alright let's see this train wreck". But honestly I was pleasantly surprised by the accuracy and delivery of this video. Well done.
who cares about the story? i am only trying to stay alive

Yo Momma (1 year ago)
Eh. I'm partial to ENB's interpretation of the undead as merely symptoms of the return of the Age of Ancients. Why else would all the other species you meet be so mindless and always respawn, unless they were undead too? With the Dark Soul only being special because it gave Manus the power of the Abyss, and was automatically distributed to his descendants.
