Souls Series

Would a Souls/Bloodborne/Elden Ring series translate well to television? I feel like it would have to be on the same scale as GOT or LOTR. Obviously it would need buttfrick loads of cgi too...

    Great Boss, unfortunately like all bosses, is reused to pad out the size of the game

      i think it was delayed due to covid

      If the bloodborne movie leak is real I hope the director is Japanese and the actors are English. Don't want to see a bunch of WOPS in 1800s fantasy England.

      i prefer it that way. i really enjoy some boss fights and would hate to have to fight them only once a game. and no i dont like coop i dont want to help shitters fight bosses. though to be honest they should have taken the bonfire ascetic from ds2 and put in this game.

          The original idea was that Astels were supposed to be random game events. A meteor crashes, and you fight the alien. They're not lone creatures.

        Boyega really does love taking celebrated IPs, completely failing to understand them like the Black person he is, and then shitting out a horrible version of it with him as the star

        The lore goes crazy deep within the main plot and everything that orbits it is a fricking rabbit hole too. GOT seems like a shit analogue to me but LOTR kinda has it. With that said, LOTR also has a lot of typical mythical tropes (elves, orcs, goblins, demigods, deities, even if the latter two aren't called by those names). This makes it easier to adapt and be digestible to uninitiated audiences. The Souls series games are extremely opaque initially in terms of story and world, and I think most people really only understand them by crowdsourcing knowledge and lore insights. Beyond that, the art styles blow LOTR out of the water and range from unsettling to strikingly beautiful.

        This dumb shit right here is what you kind of get -- "vampires and werewolves" instead of what the game hinges on more in reality. The Orphan of Kos is pretty fricking far from your typical Van Helsing fare, but that's what they're going to base the series on because it's just easier, which also causes the rest of us to ask "well why fricking bother at all if you won't do it properly?"

    Nah. Silent protagonists or characters created by the players wouldn't work out ever on tv or film. And if they did stick to it and have a silent protag, they would most likely include a sidekick character that's only there to spout exposition and speak for the character. Jist look what they did to the Halo series. MC wasn't a silent protag or character created, but his dialogue in games were short and rare and he was never unmasked so that the player could self insert. Show ruined his badass stoicism. I'm sure the Bioshock series(or is it a movie?) Will suffer the same thing.

    The vibe and style of this series is completely contingent on the player having total agency over what they're doing/exploring, this is genuinely impossible to adapt to a non video game format. A movie or show will never ever be able to capture the exact feeling, it would amount to nothing more than "look there's the armor you remember!" style bait in a mediocre game of thrones ripoff.

    No souls are too dark and pessimistic for general audience. Even most fans don't really pay attention to story and all they do are just killing bosses there are so many small details about world that you need to search hours on some wiki fandom to understand everything perfectly. Also it's metroidvania so automatically doesn't have linear story considering the fact that not everyone who would work on that series is going to be really big fan of games many fans will be enraged by stuff that is not considered canon. The most important thing is the main character who is literally noone it works in games because you can associate yourself with him but wouldn't work in series.

      But horror is a popular genre. Ofc they would have to make changes to adapt it to tv but there is no reason to drop any of the main elements that give it it's unique feel.

    A Souls movie would be experimental. Much like Metroid, a big part of the experience is the feeling of isolation. There would be minimal dialogue and the film would be mostly traveling + the occasional bit of combat. You wouldn't be able to tell the entire story either so it would either need to be a TV series or an EXTREMELY truncated adaptation.

    The charm of these games is that the lore is barely known even to the players. A fricking hobo in these worlds would have more basic information on the setting than the people who play the games. It's all incredibly sparse text descriptions that get interpreted up the ass a bazillion different ways, most of them wrong.

    Between Two Fires by Christopher Buehlman has a medieval soulslike feel. Would love to see a series from this if it was done well.

      People would shit on it because of the gay priest and the girl being sympathetic to israelites. I’d watch it too but it would be impossible to have a thread on it.

        Takes place in France during the black plague. Disgraced knight finds little girl and decides to protect her. Supernatural stuff starts happening. It’s not going to blow your mind but you might like it.

    No. Compared to videogames movies are inferior form of art. They're probably the lowest form of art if we're being honest.

    It actually good with each episode following a different character ending with a boss fight. Maybe keep the same character for the opening or the next episode to progress the world and overall story.

    These games are fun but literally have no story. Everything interesting has already happened long before the games start.

    No, a lot of what makes them good is the lack of exposition and the games being entirely gameplay with the story being an afterthought and something you have to actively seek out and research to sort of understand, a show would be some fat girlboss showrunner axxplaining why the tarnished are a heavy handed metaphor for historical homosexualry persecution, it would be antithetical to everything that makes the games so unique and beloved

    Computer games are interactive. None of them work as tv/film because you can't interact with tv/film.

      That's why you adapt them for film. You definitely can take a lore rich story and turn that into a movie.
