Dark Souls inspired me so much that I got a Darksign tattoo. It serves as a reminder that, despite knowing that one day I will inevitably go hollow, as long as I persevere over my failures I will make it through whatever challenges may come. (Luckily I get to keep my experience and level up though :D)

When you beat dark souls 3, you have to activate the shrine to confirm that you wanna finish and start a new game+. I think I was brought to tears before being able to choose "yes" because I realized that my journey had ended and there was probably never going to be another like it. That was my first dark souls experience and now I'm playing through the first one!

I never ever considered suicide, but I had the thought lingering in my head ever since etika died. I became a completely different person since then. that was the first time I ever dealt with serious depression. I managed to supress all of this by the time I reached 11th grade. I met this really nice girl in my science class and we would talk with eachother all the time. I gave her my number and we would text all day. (no not me spamming her to get a 1 word response, I mean dead ass, thoughtful questions the both of us were saying to eachother) then I would sit with her at lunch just me and her. I decided, fuck it, why not, let me ask her out on a date. I got completely rejected and just damn. it sucked. I would say im kinda fully recovered from that, but there was a period of time, like 4 to 5 weeks where I was completely absent. I dont even remember anything from that whole time period, all I remember is every time I saw her, I felt PHYSICAL pain in my heart. my face would practically beg me to make a frown. Good thing we were wearing masks in school. there would be times when I would go home, and just destroy myself mentally. I would continously insult myself, I would get to the verge of tears, and then go to sleep, listening to sad music every day. and this part is going to sound really dumb. But during early december, I found this weird little game called friday night funkin. It was the first thing to bring me joy since that girl. I would play it every day, before the game exploded and had kids ruin the fanbase AHMMM UNDERTALE COUGH... I would only play pico because god damn seeing that man again for the first time in a decade was a falcon punch of nostalgia to the gut. Like man, thats my man pico, gangster as fuck, just like i remembered him. Then I started to play the rest of the game, and holy shit I enjoyed it. I enjoyed it so much, and still enjoy the fuck out of it frequently. I got full combo on most of the songs in the game, and holy shit it was so really satisfying. I always thought of the concept of a game "saving someone" as really weird, until it happened to me. Thank you friday night funkin, for being the best god damned newgrounds game ever made.

This video resonates a lot with me. Were we all depressed at the end of the 2010s? Was our generation so fucked up OR dark souls involuntarily taught us a healthy coping mechanism? I dont know but this is a very common sentiment i see many people expressing towards DS

Why is this the most inspirational video on KGglobal....bc it is!! This shit made me wanna get out of the slump I've been in. I'm working in an Italian restaurant that I started at 6 years ago as a way to make a few extra bucks before my daughter was born and here I am over half a decade later still in the same place. After watching this video tho it made me start taking small steps to be able to do something different. I Started making videos for KGglobal and even tho they get less then 100 views at times it helps alot to sit down and make the videos it's a good escape. nakeyjakey never stop being a Hot Boy please!

I know what you mean “WORK, EAT, & SLEEP” [with few friends and VGs as an outline] Days Gone was the game “I wanted to get back to” I know it’s not perfect but I just got the ps5 and I was an Xbox fan since for ever. So when I started playing on M’fG I fell in love lol xD than went to the internet to find the love but found out it was basically a fallout *post FONV* game. haha but still I had a motorcycle myself and always thought that it’d be more versatile in an apocalyptic scenario. And the sorry and ps5 rendering was beautiful haha I was stunned 😳 seeing simple twigs or blades of patches of grass have shadows.

Dark souls got me through depression and I swear on my sl600 character I'm not lying. Before I got dark souls I didn't really have anything to do besides play with sticks but when I went to one of buddy's houses he showed me what he got for his birthday an Xbox 360 with halo 3 he invited me too a sleep over which is teen speak for we're gonna down a couple cans of monster get snacks and pop and stay up all night and my god it was magical we played through on heroic like we did with halo 2 and CE before, we then went through again on legendary to get all the skulls after that night I begged my mom to get me an Xbox 360 and halo 3 she of course wasn't fully listening after all she never really cared when she was drunk but low and behold I got and Xbox 360 and a copy of...dark souls considering my mom never really got anything ever I was still happy I got an Xbox and game I set it up in my room and popped the disc in and was confused nothing made sense armor weighed me down, I was limited by stamina, I wasn't an unstoppable badass, and I died over 30 times to the asylum demon I just called the game bullshit and never touched in again cut to me in the middle of highschool (gr10-gr11) and I was depressed Iwas constantly beat by my drunken mom while dad was over seas working I was also awkward had anxiety low self esteem had a small group of friends and was as frail as ds3 dragon form, I constantly skipped class staying home in my bed refusing to wake up and even when I was at school I ran on auto pilot 90% of the time and didn't care becausetoo me the only I to look forward too was playing my Xbox with a now larger library including skate 3 cod MW1 2 and 3 halo reach and dark souls but that day was different I just wasn't enjoying my games anymore sure when I was in an Xbox party with my buddies I would laugh but it was forced because I was worried if I appeared sad someone would ask what's wrong and I didn't want burden people with my problems or that's how I viewed it but there was one game left to play and that was dark souls you see even tho I sucked I had nothing else to do and so I played dark souls even when I yelled bullshit when I died I had nothing else to do and so kept playing and Idk but the struggle anger and frustration I felt was insurmountable bosses killing me over and over and over like Clockwork was infuriating but when I came back calmer and clear minded I often beat them first try in this state and slowly because I was clear minded I learned how the mechanics worked I met all these sttange characters and was dare I say having a good time I played and I played and I played and I loved it but something odd I did and I'm not sure if it was a coping mechanism but I viewed the enemies being physical manifestation of my problems the hollows being what I become when I go into auto pilot and let depression eat away at me a mindless shell of its former self, the bugs in blight town being the tiny little problems my anxiety wouldn't let me ignore and also exaggerated into gigantic problems that I couldn't let go of or else I'd be screwed over even more when in reality these problems were irrelevant I interpreted every enemy as a physical problem in my life and with each boss I cut down it felt like I had improved my life like I had one less major problem and that's because it did, it didn't just feel like it, it was real because I viewed each boss as one of my problems whether it be mental or physical and beating a boss was like me beating one of these problems it was therapeutic and essentially put my demons to rest I felt more at peace with myself and I left with a valuable lesson perseverance was key you will make mistakes you will fail but so long as you can push through it you can accomplish anything push through the Dark-[depression, anxiety, self hatred, rage, the times I contemplated suicides, the attempted suicides] you will find sunlight-[confidence bravery no anxiety genuine smiles all the good times with the homies] or at least that's what I interpreted it as but this is it the reason I'm still here is dark souls quite literally a game saved my life and I couldn't be more thankful my drunken mother made a slip up and got the wrong game now I'm doing much better I'm as I said I'm more at peace with myself I'm doing much better now I beat my depression no longer have anxiety and am no longer as frail as theds3 dragon form. thank you for reading if you did and goodnight

I watched my dad play demon souls when I was little. When he went through Dark Souls 1 I helped him through the level (through no merit of my own, I just read out the wiki which miffed him). I tried 2 on my own when I was in middle school, but it was way to hard for me. My dad doesn’t play anymore. Work and domestic matters occupy his time. He bought Dark Souls 3, played it twice, and never touched it again. 2 weeks ago I downloaded 3 on my computer and got a controller. I’ve always had a bad habit of giving up. I play video games 75% through and never touch them again. In real life it’s even worse. I once began a tabletop system with so much potential, but I lost the momentum, and it sits in its drive folder unedited. I know 3 isn’t the hardest, but I’m a casual, and I struggled to even get to vordt. I was tempted to give up, but I couldn’t. I felt like I had to do it, like fulfilling the promise of an ancestor, just way less anticlimactic and far more lame. My dad couldn’t do this, but maybe I could. So I died, cried (a lot more than I’d like to admit), and slowly progressed through the game. And then something started to happen... I got gud. I began to effectively time my rolls and make use of my weapon arts. I felt a surge of pride when I defeated my first invader (of which I had a fear of since I learnt you could invade people). I managed to make my way through the game and finally, after everything, I killed the Soul of Cinder, and walked over to the Flame. After everything, I finally got to save the world! I beat the game! I then linked the fire. I expected a brilliant explosion of fire like the first game, or at least the sun creating the horizon. What I got was a pitiful trickle of flame up my character, who just sat down and accepted it. Nothing seemed to change. Then, boom, Epilogue started playing. A cocktail of emotions surged through me. I beat the game, and felt proud that I conquered an elusive childhood in the form of this franchise. I was outraged that after all I went through, the fire hardly sputtered higher. I was also really, really fucking sad. And yet I’m satisfied. I did it boys, I got gud. After all this time I finally did It. Now I feel a bit more confident in myself. I take more risks because now I know that failure isn’t the end. I genuinely think this weird fantasy game changed my life for the better. Sorry for the rant, probably sound like a jerkoff, thanks for this great video.

I always looked back on the games I played as a kid like majoras mask and pokemon and remember how sucked into the game I was and prayed for an experience that could capture that childlike wonder and immersion, I got super close with breath of the wild but when I played bloodborne and persevered for the brutal first couple hours as a noob I was completely hooked, I fucking adore the souls series now, I’d call myself a souls fanatic. It’s such a shame so many people are put off by the learning curve as a new player, in all honesty the hardest hours of a souls game are the first you ever play

Yeah, I still remember dying twice in the tutorial area in DS2 by failing a jump and not knowing how to find or pull the two enter the Forest and Heides Tower. The Pursuer was way too hard for me, then i went to the Lost Bastille and repetitively died to the Ruin Sentinels. The true difficulty of Souls Games is figuring where to go, and where to go first. The first playthrough will almost always be a involuntary challenge run because you dont know your options.

Two games that touched me just like how Dark Souls touched Nakey are Disco Elysium and Silent Hill 2. Two beautiful games which is ironic since both of them are deppresing and theoretically, playing those games while being deppressed should've made it worse yet they somehow "calmed" me down.

I had played dark souls 3 but never beat it. I came back after a a year later and went through a bad break up at pretty much the same time. I now have beat all 3 dark souls with little to no guides. Dark souls give you what all other games don’t have anymore. A challenge. That’s what lifts you up when you finally win.

The suffering of mental and physical illness is unfair. The suffering of dark souls, however, is fair. Perhaps we who take solace in it, do so because it acts as a placeholder for struggle and reward that feels relatable. No heroic deeds, just doing our best to go on and not go hollow. Until we can do the same in real life.

Dark Souls and Bloodborne are the games I go back to whenever depression rears its ugly head. Going through the reminder that just because I fail, doesnt mean I'm a failure helps part the clouds and helps me find hope again. As cringey as that is to say.
