        I kinda like the gameplay of FromSoft, but this is 100% correct. There is no lore in their games, it's all surface level shit. And its real shame.

            >but how can you say there's simply none?
            Because there isn't any. Simple question: why do hollowed become hollowed in DS? You play as a hollowed character, but it's never explained why you're in this state, what the mechanism is that causes you to enter into that state, is becoming hollowed related to the larger world events that you find yourself in? These are all very, very basic questions and they aren't even acknowledged. All From Soft does is throw a series of titles and articles at you and then let your imagination run wild. But that's not lore, that's just laziness.

      On the contrary, there is a youtube documentary about Massive, the devs who did an outstanding job with the first The Division in terms of environmental storytelling, which required months of extra work from a dedicated team. You may or may not like it, but if done well this is one of the best solutions to apply to make exploration interesting and get players to cooperate with each other

          I'm pretty sure the player knows that and is just showcasing just how retarded it is to design a game where you can't even step half a foot off the designed path without being forced back onto it. At that point you're not really even playing the game so might as well make it a cutscene.

        It was somewhat novel when HL2 did it. Now every fucking video game has slow-walking cutscenes, though, and that novelty is long gone. If you're going to make player choice/actions not matter, then make it a cutscene, and make it skippable.

        there was no mystery. the devs were lazy about cleaning out cut content and you convinced yourselves there was some deeper meaning to it until dataminers told you definitively that there wasn't. then you cope with your wasted time by saying the real dark souls was the fan fiction we wrote along the way.

          Pretty much this. It's like the Mohg you fight in the sewers. Turns out the Mohg and Mohgwyn were originally meant to be a powerful enemy type called demon that the player would encounter as frequently as the Crucible Knights, Tree Spirit, or Tree Sentinel, so there is no lore behind Mohg's existence. From just didn't want to create a boss that ties into the Frenzy Flame lore, so they reused what was initially a generic enemy type.
          Ofcourse, there's video trying to explain the Frenzy Mohg, but it's all bullshit.

    Games have been doing environmental storytelling for decades and this dude is so fucking retarded that he needed the game that leans into it in the most obvious and aggressive way to show him that maybe it's a useful tool to have in your toolbox as a storyteller. We're already a decade past the Fromsoft formula being novel and exciting but you can now get get ready for a decade of games with no plot except for cryptic hints that the publisher expects a community of influencers to form around because these film school rejects are incapable of just casually using a technique when it's called for.
