How Dark Souls Is Sort Of Like True Detective

How Dark Souls Is Sort Of Like True Detective


True Detective’s first season, in my opinion, was the best season of television since season four of The Wire. Dark Souls? It’s probably my favourite game of the last five years. So this well put together video essay, detailing the similarities between the two, is right up my alley. Give it a watch. I think you’ll enjoy it.

It delves fairly deeply into the lore of Dark Souls, something I wasn’t always interested in, but in this context it’s super interesting. I really like the way the creator of this video draws in other stories to show how Dark Souls is connected to multiple different strands of literature and myth.

In short this is a really fun video. And informative too.
