Dark Souls lore speculation and theories can go really deep, which just shows how dedicated the series' fanbase is.


The "Shrine of Amana" is one of the most beautiful and mysterious places in Dark Souls II, with only a few scattered around in-game about its lore and background. But Souls veteran Vaati has it all, with a little fan-speculation added, squeezed into a really well-edited video.

Minor spoilers ahead, although you're not really supposed to know anything about the place on your first playthrough, anyway. The thing I remember the most going through this part is that the enemies hit hard and are really annoying.

Dark Souls is my dysfunctional relationship in games. I don't think it is possible to love anything more, yet hate it so very much at times. I find the lore and the adventure, the discovery so incredible, so inviting, yet I realize it won't be possible to see half of the world or it's mysteries. I just don't believe I'm capable of beating some of the bosses. I realize that's part of the allure of most of it's players but I get frustrated knowing I'm "not worthy."
