Character creation is a beautiful thing. It allows players to fully immerse themselves in a story, truly becoming a part of the narrative — even if that narrative is as terrifyingly brutal as Dark Souls. But you don't have to make a replica of yourself — it's a chance to be whomever you wish to be and in this player's case, he really wanted to be Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher.

Made Geralt in Dark Souls 3 from r/gaming

Though obviously not an exact replica — the character customization in Dark Souls is fairly limited and dated — it's not hard to see the resemblance, especially with that iconic scar. Plus, if anybody can handle the foes in the Dark Souls universe, it's everybody's favorite ladies man.

With the Dark Souls Trilogy announced for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, it's the perfect time to jump back into this cruel and unforgiving world. Pair that with the upcoming Nintendo Switch port, and it has never been a better time to be a fan of the franchise.
