The atmosphere in the world is so great and there could be a lot of great stories to tell. Every time I turn the game on and play I just want to stay in that world. Its so great. Would anyone else be down for some sort of extended fiction in the form of books/comics or something?
I really want some extended fiction of the "souls" universe.
@DaemonBlack: There's actually a surprising amount of lore in the game, just not delivered in the most obvious or conventional of ways.
This too. Fraampt basically tells you what the endgame is the first time you talk to him. A lot of the NPCs actually tell you cool and important shit if you listen.
"There was a medieval country and slowly things went to shit."
To actually contribute to this thread, I do find it very refreshing to have an extremely understated (but contiguous) story to a game, so I'd like if in future games they started blending in a little more Half Life-style inferred story. Nothing more, though.
Demon's Souls was the same way. One of my favourite things in that game was piecing together the story from talking to NPCs and descriptions on weapons, armour (and spells?). There actually is a lot of lore you just have to seek it out. So far it is looking like Dark Souls is following a similar path and I am already excited for my second playthrough to help flesh out the lore some more.
Following in the footsteps of the Soul's universe, write fan fiction.
Or make a compendium of compiled information. Seriously, this Demon's Souls lore compendium is a really interesting read. It really has a great fiction and it's all told through item descriptions, NPC dialogues, enemy dialogue, world descriptions, etc.
