Elden Ring’s trailer made me crave a FromSoftware management game

The reaction to the trailer for Elden Ring, which capped off last night’s Summer Game Fest, was inevitable. All through the show, the side-mounted chat swamp festered with a single, copy-pasted block of lore from FromSoftware’s upcoming extravaganza, and Geoff Keighley took on the air of a besieged Denethor, desperately trying to ignore the chant of “Grond, Grond, Grond,” from beyond the walls. So long as Elden Ring looked even remotely like Dark Souls, those folks were going to be ecstatic. And needless to say, it looked exactly like Dark Souls. But if you think I’m easing into some jaded,…
