It’s a magical moment when you encounter something in a video game that is not commonly known. When you find a secret room, discover a hidden feature, or figure out how to skip an entire section, it blows you away.
Because we live in a world where we can look up tutorials and YouTube reviews at the touch of a button, you would assume that modern titles would not have the same level of mystery. Every time a new title comes out, it feels like every secret and cheat can be found online five minutes later.
But there are some games with secrets that hinted at us for years. Duck Hunt has a hidden detail that most people did not find for decades.
Fire Ring is the most talked about game of the year, and people are STILL discovering new features almost daily. Batman: Arkham Asylum has a room so well hidden that no one would have found it if the developers had not told us.
Even though you have been playing these games religiously since childhood, there are a few features that definitely escaped your attention.
Because The Fire Ring was directed by the same guy behind the Soul series, Hidetaka Miyazaki, everyone knew it was going to be unbelievably hard. And yet, this masterful action role-playing game was harder than we could have ever imagined.
Since Elden Ring follows similar mechanics as Dark Souls, many players assumed they could use the same tricks to defeat enemies. In the Soul titles, you could insta-kill bosses by jumping over them and throwing your sword into their skull. Unfortunately, players quickly realized that this trick does not work in the Elden Ring, forcing them to beat bosses the old-fashioned way.
But contrary to popular belief, the classic Plunge Attack is in the game!
Because it only works on certain enemies, and the mechanics of how it is performed are different from Dark Souls, most players have never noticed it. By jumping on top of specific evils, such as Flame Chariot, you can kill them all at once if you press R1 just before hitting their head
The attack may not be universally effective, but it is hugely useful if you are battling certain bosses.
