    True the story is kind of cliché....kind of.....in the first 20 minutes.
    After that it gets much weirder, and original.

    Especially the Gwynevere/Gwyndolin/Anor Londo thing....

    To be fair it's still the whole chosen one thing when you're given the lordvessel.

    The twist where gwynevere is an illusion is cool though yeah.

    Post lordvessel it turns into you having to kill people for their power to use against the final boss- cus thats completely original too silly

    Love the lore, but the story is weak. AotA was an interesting subplot, but it just refers to the 'save the girl in danger' cliche instead silly
     In all fairness though, there isn't much one can do to avoid cliches these days. :b

    Dark Souls plays just like most game Pre-Baby Gamers Era, i.e. spoon feed you the game and then help you burp it back up. Anyone remember the first Legend of Zelda where it was just you walking around? You had a general idea where to go, but there was not a glowing trail of light to help you get around. I don't think you could necessarily call this "cliche" as it is by far not the most popular thing on the market, or in the industry for that matter. It would be cliche if you were a super soldier who could use any type of weaponry/vehicle and you fought hundreds of soldiers but managed to kill them all. Yeah it can play like that, but that's only to us who have put in so much into the game that we can run around naked scratching our a--es in pvp.

    Irony is, the story in dark souls is genuinely straight of the z list- "chosen one" is one of the biggest cliche's in story telling
    The only characters that call you chosen are Frampt (not trustworthy whatsoever) and sort-of Oscar (though he doesn't specifically claim you're the chosen, and his dialogue was built in large part with him having interacted with Frampt).

    Who made this "chosen one" story, and to what purpose?  While the AotA plot is played pretty straight, the main storyline very well might *not* be.  After all, the guy who most readily calls us "chosen undead" is perfectly happy accepting us doing whatever we want at the end.

    The only Women in this Game with actual titties is an illusion .

    0/10
    This might come as a surprise to some, but none of the women in the game are *real* winking.  Not even Priscilla, for those who prefer their women to dislike them and be almost double their height while wielding weapons.  Furries big grin.

    Post lordvessel it turns into you having to kill people for their power to use against the final boss- cus thats completely original too
    You don't actually get stronger from that though, the idea is actually to use their power to open the kiln and then burn it.

    I certainly wouldn't mind absorbing the 4king cheap attacks or the BoC "floor falls out hurrrrrrrr" megaman style!
