Is Bloodborne's Upper Cathedral Ward The Scariest Place From Software Has Ever Created?

No doubt, Miyazaki and From Software knew what they were doing when they crafted this Victorian nightmare and no place reaffirms this better than the Upper Cathedral Ward; a impressive exercise in pure, unadulterated psychological and manipulative horror.

As close to horror as it gets. This place was a nightmare, pun intended.

But Tomb of Giants wrecks anything else.

I don't know why you have so many disagrees.

Tomb of Giants was the location I fretted over the most.

I skipped through Tomb of the Giants with no torch. Didn't see anything.

Tower of Latria in Demon Souls & Tomb of Giants in Dark Souls. Go there, much scarier than a mere Upper Cathedral

I rather take my chances in the Upper Cathedral than the Forbidden Forrest.

Foridden Woods is nasty and deadly but it's not scary, def not horror scary in classic sense

I remember being drunk and getting entirely lost where all the snake minions are. I panicked.

Nightmare of Mensis is worse. Mergo's wet nurse might be the creepiest boss From Software's ever created.

Oh it's not that bad, it's a great tour location!

Freakin hated those brain suckers up there. Absolutely wrecked my head. They were probably the most frustrating part of the game for me xD

It isn't that the Brainsuckers are hard most of the time, but sometimes they would go nuts, grabbing me no matter what the hell I did. Other times, I'd just kill them without a 2nd thought.

But, on 1st playthrough, I had 79 insight going in. Then later on, I was looking and I had like 44. I was like wtf?

It was that one by the ladder going up, the ambush. He just grabbed me, or chased me and grabbed me like 10 x in a row.

ninsigma999d ago (Edited 999d ago )

I never thought anything of them until I got to the upper cathedral. I was getting grabbed and as soon as I recovered I'd get hit with paralysis spell or whatever it is and then he'd go to town on my again and that was me done xD That area was the only time I almost rage quit my entire play time lol


And yeah I was at 99 insight at that point and then I looked a bit later and saw it was less and I hadn't used any. I thought the game was trippin xD
