So the "Green Knight" movie looks like it's heavily inspired by Dark Souls

"Looks like Dark Souls" is the gaming version of "real world happenings as Harry Potter references".

PLAY ANOTHER FUCKING GAME

Didn't get anything resembling that solomn, broken, decaying, world-gone-mad feel of Souls games from the trailer, but there's plenty of macabre dark fantasy shenanigans, for sure.

Is there a gaming equivalent to the mostly Harry Potter centric FB group "I'm begging you please read another book"

Imagine if some Western based game studio made a famous, dark feudal Japan inspired game series and then some Japanese made movie comes out later about the Sengoku period and people tried to tie it back to the Western game studio and not the hundreds of years of history and storytelling Japan had produced as a culture.

I feel confident saying it's not influenced by dark souls. But to be fair to the op I can't think of too many other "dark" fantasy movies. The Green Knight seems pretty faithful to the story it's based on ie probably going to be dark as shit.

Which is also Dark Souls' thing

Everyone knows Dark Souls invented melancholy and dark fantasy. Definitely not a very popular genre for thousands of years now, owing its roots to ancient mythologies....nah definitely not, Dark Souls came first.

Actually Sekiro was heavily influenced by Ghost Dog
