However, what bugs me the most is how some (or many, even) so-called ‘fans/veterans’ of the Souls series are ruining the experience for new-comers. I’ve been going through forums and various communities, and whenever some one new to From Software’s games asks if this game is worth buying, there’s this bunch of pretentious dicks who go all ‘oh boy, you can’t handle this, it’s too tough for your casual ass, it’s for us “hardcore gamers”. Don’t even bother with this, it’s not for you’.
I mean, why? Why would you stop someone from buying a game that will probably end up to be one of his/her finest experiences in gaming. Why do you have to go comparing it to the Souls series, and not talk about the game itself. Sure, the similarities are there, but Bloodborne is still a whole new game, and for new-comers, there has never been a better game to get them accustomed to From Software’s style.
