With a metacritic score sitting on 92, Bloodborne is definitely one of the highest rated AAA games of the generation, and Sony decided to boast a little with a new accolades trailer.
Sitting on 93 ones again ;-) G.O.T.Y Its like a drug, cant stop playing it. Im in Love <3 Haha :-D
Me either. It's like gambling. The more you lose, the more you wanna play...Cuz this time you are gonna win! It's unbelievable how a game can be so damn good.
I like the game but Borderlands is once again hooking me more, putting a skill point into something is much more satisfying than tiny stat upgrades... it would be a damn shame if I don't get back to playing this game...
@XBLSkull - Yah Borderlands is much easier and straightforward so it's probably more your speed. I say that based on your recent comment where you blamed Bloodborne for your own lack of common sense.
@MysticStrummer - Pay no mind to XBLSkull, I read a couple of his comments from the past and it seems he has an issue with everything but Microsoft. So, of course this isn't going to be his game, it's not on his preferred system.
Agreed!! I have never Played it before and I'm hooked. I'll mesms with bloodborne again when the load times get fixed cause I sucked and got tired of the that loading screen.
one of the best bosses i've ever played against O_O it will keep u playing like with joy.
I totally think Bloodborne is an amazing game, nothing against that. But I highly doubt it's a serious game of the year contender. Just look at Dark Souls 2, it had a 92 on Metacritic, but lost to other, lower scoring games last year because it's much more niche. With games like Battlefront, Metal Gear Solid, Halo, Batman Arkham Knight, the Witcher, and other high profile titles coming out this year, I imagine Bloodborne will get overlooked just because of it's 'niche-ness.' I also find that game of the year awards often seem to lean towards more recent releases, with titles that released earlier in the year often being overlooked because the for them excitement has died down. I don't think that's really a fair way of doing game of the year, but it is what it is.
Very kind words for this title. You know Shu is so proud of From and Studio Japan.
Yep sony should definately look to acquiring them. I'd love to see whay they can come up with for Project Morpheus o.0
Maybe continue their first person games or another metal wolf chaos
Bloodborne is an amazing game.
It aint bragging mofo if you back it up - Kid Rock
I played it about an hour over at a friends place lastnight, and graphically speaking, it looks like it could have been a PS3 game. I've never played any of the Souls games, but this game doesn't seem to have any objectives or any real direction of any kind.....or any real story of any kind. The high scores are impressive, but to each their own I guess.
"I've never played any of the Souls games". That right there is one of the reasons you don't really understand it. The game does a decent job of lending a hand to newcomers, though, so if you decide to stick with it, you should be fine. In regards to the high scores, the game is very, very well done. Beyond that, the Souls games on the PS3 didn't look as good as Bloodborne.
Must need glasses cause I watched a Dark Souls 2 stream and it looks like crap compared to this.
"there is no direction".....that's the point, the game doesn't force you to go down linear path A which splits into linear path B or C that end up going to path D no matter what. You play the game the way you want. Also their is a story, you just need to take the time and read the deacriptions of the weapons, items, or armors and also the NPCs dialouge. Even after all that, their still is more to discover in NG+. If you really want to know the lore, they have a site dedicated for that for all the souls games. The game doesn't spoon feed you, it lets you figure out shit by yourself which is what makes it so satisfying when you beat it. You alone did all the work.
I'd say it's a perfect example of how "open-linear" trumps both open-world and linear design.
PS3 would die if it tried to run Bloodborne. It'll be worse than Dark Souls during Blighttown all throughout the game. The story is also there, just wait till the peeps who make all them lore vids on youtube finish up and start on that. All of a sudden, peeps who said there was no story will be surprised at how much there is.
First off, there is no way in hell the PS3 could run this game. Second, you're not supposed to know where to go. That's the fun of the game. Exploring the world, and mapping things out in your head as you go. It's all interconnected, and it's such a rewarding feeling when you think you're lost as hell and all of a sudden find a gate or elevator that lands you right back in familiar territory. I played about an hour and a half at my friend's house before I bought it. I never really played much of the Souls games either, and after playing it I thought it was fun enough but not something I had to play. Now that I own it, I simply cannot stop playing. It's absolutely incredible, one of my favorite games since the PS2 days already.

On youtube it looks like a ps3 game. In person it looks unbelievable, which makes me know you didnt actually play it.
You are lying b/c no one who has really played this would say it looks like a PS3 game. It's gorgeous. And yeah, it doesn't hold your hand and dish out hrs of cutscenes, but there's a story to be told for sure...one where you find out just what you are made of.
There is a direction and a deep, cryptic story; you just have to be smart and have high enough comprehension to take it in and understand it. The gameplay as well requires skill and thinking, which is why the game isn't for everyone. "it looks like it could have been a PS3 game" Oh really? if the game has some of the best graphics ever, like The Order, it gets criticized for sacrificing gameplay to achieve it(even though the gameplay is actually solid), and you hear all that gameplay>graphics talk. But since Bloodborne excels in the gameplay department, graphics became important again and the game gets downplayed (even though it has amazing graphics/particle effects/physics that are obviously not obtainable on last gen systems, with a magnificent art design). smh.
It looks like a PS3 game? You sir, have major vision problems. It also sounds like you prefer your gaming to be very basic and spoonfed to you, sort of like baby food. To each their own indeed, and thank Zod for that.
go troll somewhere else, this game need no fanboys. im glade its exclusive, its been a long time sense i had this much fun fear and joy from playing great game.
What are you talking about? Bloodborne is one of the most graphically detailed games I've ever seen. From the incredible detail in the buildings to the street it's insane.
this is an amazing game from what i have been told, and reviewers seems to agree. so why not let the consumers know that its being praised really highly we have our first GOTY contender in the Category Witcher 3 is next MGS5 will be there Batman will be there some underdogs maybe halo 5 and tomb raider uncharted 4 would have been right there neck and neck with the rest Personally i think MGS5 will win, Kojima if he is leaving Konami will go out with a bang but all of them deserve it and if no man's sky lives up to the hype than we may have a Indie beat all these Triple AAA titles
Do you know how GOTY nominees are being chosen? No matter how amazing strategy games are they have never change to be even nominated in GOTY awards; OOTP16, HOI4, etc. Are they too complex to be nominated for GOTY?
play the game then post here plz.
This game actually delivered on the hype, gonna keep me entertained until The Witcher 3.
And then some. I'm looking forward to The Witcher, but I cant see myself finishing this before that comes out. Maybe I would have given up by then but I dont think I will finish it.
don't give up Bathyj. you can cheat.. like i did because after 3 soul games.. i couldn't take a beating anymore.. not that has made me stronger. i still am scared as shit roaming new places. yes.. i'm not proud.
I think I'll keep going. I've been grinding and leveling up. Just killed the cleric beast. He wasn't that hard. Beat him on my second go. I'm quite proud of that, and I think I'm addicted. I'm just thinking about it all day at work.
Definitely don't give up. Level up your sword/cane and gun and level up your character. Look at vids on how to defeat bosses if you cant do it by yourself. Also don't forget you can summon players to help you. FYI a 6+ cane is pretty bad-ass. Excellent choice for a primary weapon.
It's an amazing game. The kind of game to buy a console to play and I don't say that lightly. Just like people got xbox to play halo, or ps2 to play gta, or 360 to play gears, or ps3 to play uncharted. You are doing yourself a disservice if you don't experience this game. That is all i can say.
It has a game breaking bug caused by trying to help people in a certain area in the game. The bug causes a key needed to progress in the game to disappear, and this is fairly early in the game. Honestly, the game is a freakin masterpiece, but this bug is horrible, how did they miss it in testing?
*** spoiler *** Tell me its nothing to do with finding some kids parent
No. Supposedly if you help or invade people in the Forbidden Woods it makes a key in the next area not spawn. It's not what I'd call early in the game. If you summon someone it won't happen, only if you allow yourself to be summoned or you invade. They're working on a fix. I didn't know about the bug until after I'd already gone through the area and boss battle. I hope the guy who helped me wasn't glitched because of it.
it's on 93. not 92
Argh... Wanna go home and play it, Any good excuses to get out of work?
You need a blood transfusion.
Violent diarrhea :3
Always a winner!
I struggled with this game for the first 6 hours. I've never played a souls game before and I suck at it, but after finally beating the first boss it just clicked. That was 2 days ago. Last night I finally beat Father Gascoigne and I was shaking for an hour from all the adrenaline (took me over 20 attempts) - I couldn't believe it. I slept well last night, and today the adventure will continue. Don't know what I'm going to meet next and I know it will taunt me to give up ... but I won't. It might take me a year to finish this game but I'm hooked and I won't let go. I'm glad I never gave up at the start.
Hellish nightmares await my friend. I'm sitting at level 64 right now, and it only gets harder lol. Though, it progresses at a good pace. It doesn't ever really throw you into something you can't handle. It slowly eases you through things you might think otherwise impassible to get you more experienced for the next challenge. Man, I've only had the game for about three days and I'm already level 64. I can't stop playing, it's way too addicting.
same, none stop 14 hour a day playing for me and im at 72
Although I consider myself a Souls veteran, it took me 4 attempts to beat Father G. Also took me 4/5 times to beat that Furry boss with the skull in his area. I've beaten all other bosses on my 1st or 2nd try since. I've beat at least 3 other main quest bosses and all 3 bosses in the 1st chalice dungeon. The fluid combat is so much better than the other Souls games. I never feel like a dodge or parry was a game glitch.
Gotta say that one animation with the cleric beast and the hunter facing off right before gameplay looks so awesome. I'd love that as a poster or wallpaper.
The game is just incredible. Beating the cleric beast made me feel so good. That's something that many games fail go accomplish and that's giving the player a sense of achieving when they overcome an obstacle in the game.
It's no rainbows or neon colors , but nobody can say Bloodborn is a bad looking game . I't oozes atmosphere and artistic flair , and is brutally beautiful.
Game is fun so far but the frame rate is terrible. Way too choppy. Wish the character would react faster to my inputs as well.
Amazing game! Expect that song to get some sales :)
Amazing game and great studio.
