A counterpoint.....sometimes showing unfinished gameplay to the public can have the opposite effect on what they want to accomplish.
Just look at the shitstorm Halo Infinite had when the released that gameplay video last year....
Why would they want to show a gameplay video if it's not finished graphically to the public when the majority of opinions would probably be negative....it takes a lot of time for companies to make these videos/demos and ensure it's equal to the finished product so if they dont want to spend time doing that...(and I heard its like a month to make these type of demos)....they cant really show it to the public.

Well, them not showing new footage gave us a ton of memes to enjoy at least.
I heard some journalist says the footage will be released to the public soon though. Whatever "soon" means is unclear though.
I normally don't give AF, and am content to just wait for the game to drop. I'm just SO ready my for next Souls fix. Some Souls clones are admittedly pretty neat, but they can only fill the void for so long.
I'm always watching.

To be fair, it's not like Infinite showed snippets of gameplay like Elden Ring did a couple months ago before it's gameplay presentation (Halo's).
If nothing else, they coulda provided a shorter version of what they gave those journalists or something, some glimpse and not a description by IGN. I actually listened and it was awful. Them, not the game I mean.
I'm looking forward to Elden Ring. Eversince I played Bloodborne I've been waiting for another new IP by them I can get behind. I'd try Dark Souls but I feel I'm late to that party.
I mostly only like their Soulsborne titles. I'm wasn't ever into other FromSoftware games, like Armored Core or Otogi.
I actually cringed a little bit when I heard it was open world. It's not that I hate open world per se, but it so often involves things I generally hate in video games. They've earned my trust though, and I'm banking on them not stumbling into the typical open world pitfalls.
I don't want resources blown on some silly lifeskills mechanics, where I have to cook moron stew for some moron in the town of Dorkshire, just to get a robe that lets me get back to the actual game I was trying to play. I don't want spend 8 hours mining dildo fragments to make dildo ingots either.
I'm always watching.
