Currently, the game that I am hip-deep into is ‘Bloodborne.’ This game is amazing. It has a vast and complicated world that draws heavily on Lovecraftian horror to create a world and a history that is both engaging and terrifying. The unforgiving difficulty makes it so that you are driven to go through the grind and level up, so that you can lay the smack-down on a boss that has been giving you trouble. And when you do, it is so cathartic. Having never played the ‘Dark Souls’ games, we may finally be experiencing what they did. It’s a good feeling. But the real draw is the world. The mysteries and dark truths that are hiding just out of your reach. It’s thrilling, and terrifying. And just like in Lovecraft’s works, the more you learn, the more uncertain and unhinged you become, as a protagonist being pulled along by forces much greater than themselves.
