"Before we get into what I think about Bloodborne, let me preface this by saying that I am by no means a veteran of the “Souls” (Demons, Dark, and Dark 2) franchise. In fact, prior to Bloodborne, I have never even played one of these. I have had friends tell me of their frustration and how unforgiving the games could be. I thought I knew what I was getting into, and yet I was still so, so wrong.
Unfortunately, with this being my first venture into one of these games, I will not be able to explain the differences between Bloodborne and its Souls brothers (of which I’m told there are many). What I can tell you, though, is what will come as no surprise to any who have played one of these games: Bloodborne is HARD. Like, really hard."
