With the advent of data mining and instant information, it has become a rarity to get video game campfire stories. It’s hard to spread a rumor that can be fact-checked immediately, and even legitimate mysteries tend to be deconstructed pretty quickly. But the beauty of modding is that it doesn’t have to be real. You can to make the real.
That’s what I love so much king bored hahais fast but effective new Elden ring movie, which shows off a part of the game you’ve probably never seen before. “Saint’s Descent” sees the player descend a seemingly endless pitch-black staircase where eventually there is a well.
The player goes into the pit of course, because we have learned that by now you are missing critical content in Elden Ring if you don’t throw yourself into every abyss. I won’t spoil the rest.
Like I said, it’s a simple story that is nonetheless good at what it sets out to do, partly because it’s not a wild thing. It seems believable, and some people who looked legit thought it was real before being informed that it isn’t.

King Bore haha actually made a whole playlist of “spooky mod” videos and mods like this, but for older ones dark souls games, if you want to take a look. What hits me are some of the extremely normal situations that take a sudden turn for the worse, like getting stuck in a claustrophobic elevator. something like that could really happened to someone, maybe through sheer bad luck, but no one would believe you, right? The alternative can be just as frightening: a trap that never ends. It’s so good!
The fictional aspect is in a sense crucial to the fun here. When the news broke the Elden Ring mysterious wall that took 50 hits to knock down, it tore up the internet. Who would ever find that anomaly naturally? Why would they do such a thing? Miyazaki, you devil!
The researchers came out to take a closer look. Then we found out it was really just a glitch, it never lasted 50 hits, and there was really nothing particularly interesting “hiding” behind the wall. The moment was cool while it lasted, but anyone entering now can’t recreate the feeling of not knowing what the hell was going on when it was a mystery. Now we just tell each other it’s a broken wall.
Of course I can tell you that this Elden Ring video isn’t real, but that’s not the point, right? For a moment you are sucked into another reality where evoking a feeling is all that matters. It reminds me a lot of the modern arrival of Super Mario 64 scary stories. Anyone with critical thinking skills could determine that the extended stories never actually happened, or we would have heard about them long ago. We’ll get the popcorn out anyway.
