    Nobody thinks Elden Ring has good writing. They think it has good lore and world building. Good writing comes from VaatiVidya, and I can't wait to see how he wraps up the Elden Ring story.

    It just becomes boring and rote because any pathos is evaporated by how much they spam the concept. At least in Armored Core it's funny whenever it turns out the guy who hired you actually wanted to murder you. They genuinelly unironically expect people to give a shit whenever an NPC randomly dies to to the chungus curse or something and leave behind their armor set and sword or go le insane in a random cave ten hours later in your playthrough that you dodgeroll past (then collect their shit)

    Remember when people thought Elden Ring's story was "smart" when Kenneth Haight's questline was bugged and people headcanon'd it was some elaborate statement on how some stories may not have a tidy end and it turned out it was bugged.
    Remember when people thought the AI generated gibberish lyrics of random boss themes was some elaborate language made to show hatred of the gods or something?

    you do realize nobody plays the souls games for the enthralling story right. like the story is just there to just fit the game design of weapons and enemies. the whole game is to be played as a ACTION RPG. nothing else.

      Then why do the stories of these games keep getting more and more elaborate? Why do a GRRM collab? Souls is popular because it has a reputation of being hard, and because pseuds love stitching together the complete mess of a story.
      Most people don't care about the combat, evidenced by the inclusion of various things in these games that let you skip becoming good at it.

        souls is popular because of the reputation of being hard isn't true. it has a reputation of being fun cause of the unique weapon choices and gameplay from it. there's a reason why people akin the souls game to a fighting game especially the PvP. the level design is what makes it hard cause they like doing whacky DnD stuff where you'll just die by the environment cause youre not too cautious. but overall everyone who plays souls games just do it to do a type of RPG build like strength or magic builds. as far we know for GRRM for elden ring, he mostly just provided the ideal world for it, like characters and world pieces but Miyazaki provided the faction politics and dialogue for the characters. again the story is not the main focus of the souls games, if that were the case then nobody would sink hundreds of hours into the gameplay it has to offer.

          You're tunnel-visioned on Ganker and other online forums. If you had any normalgay friends you'd know they play Souls games primarily because they find them challenging. If you think that's anecdotal, consider that the Souls challenge-run community is by far the largest in gaming right now. People can't get enough of them because beating these games with random stipulations is the ultimate gamer cred to them.
          egirls and Black folk with ZERO interest in anything souls has to offer play souls just to say they did. You know this is true.

    These games aren't your happy go lucky JRPGs where you save teh world from duh ebil thing. These are just build autism for autistic people who like armors and hitting shit with a side of ambiguous lore and tidbits. Idk why they get normie praise if you ask me since normies love their constant Marvel dialogue and superhero protagonists who can do no wrong. Only NPC that mattered was patches anyways since Miyazaki loves him meanwhile the others are irrelevant jobbers.

    Casuals think than any bleak and negative story is a good one since they only consume shit like marvel movies and triple a games.

    That's not what makes the writing of these games bad, rather it's the insistence of sticking to their original formula where the story is nonexistent in anywhere but the item descriptions and boss death dialogue, which was only done originally in DeS because of budget constraints, but seeing how this is no longer an issue that they have, I see it as them being incredibly lazy. Datalogs have never been a good method of storytelling and should have been done away with by Bloodborne, especially since it's chastised in every other game except From's games because they're From games.
    From still sticking to this storytelling method just feels pretentious, cheap, and lazy to me.

      it was done on purpose as a stylistic choice. Demon's Souls has a very ghostly, ethereal feel to it in every way. It pursued transience as an art style choice and the voice acting and way the story is told (and the simplicity of it) was a big contributor to that end.

        It's literally not and I'm tired of you autists posing as art buffs pretending it is. Again, if it was literally any other game, it would have received criticism but you call it art whenever From does it. It's fricking stupid and you know it is.

    It blew me away how much stronger the character writing for AC6 was compared to ER/Souls. There's not a single human face to any of the names but Walter alone made me feel far more emotions than every Souls/ER character combined, and that's nothing to say of Ayre, Rusty, Michigan, etc. Even characters you only meet once like Freud or O'Keefe left an impression on me through only a handful of lines. I heard that the person who wrote the game also wrote Sekiro (which is also very good without being overbearing), hope he's just in charge of all their games stories moving forward.
