So we thought it’d be a good time to talk about some movies that remind us of Elden Ring. Whether you’re away from your gaming system, don’t have Elden Ring, are interested in the vibes of Elden Ring but not in playing it, are just looking to supplement your marathon playing session, or anything else, here are 13 movies that can keep those haunted vibes going, Tarnished.

Why it’s like Elden Ring: A child suffers the dire consequences of hugging a stranger.
