Bloodborne is the best PS4 exclusive. But Sony didn't bother enhance it on the PS4 Pro.

yomfweeee2028d ago

Sony doesn't control From Software.

moomoo3192028d ago

Boost mode on pro gives the game a nice little bump

MegamanXXX2028d ago

Don't need enhancing 😁

PurpHerbison2027d ago

Despite being the greatest game of the generation, it does need enhancing for the Pro. They could totally fix the frame pacing issues and fps drops if they wanted to.

deno2027d ago

I'd have to say uncharted 4 is the best ps4 exclusive. The Indiana Jones of adventure games. A masterpiece.

Looks like any game "inspired" by Shadow of the Colossus turns out to be great i.e. Demon's Souls, Uncharted, Bloodborne, Twilight Princess, Resident Evil 4, etc etc

Traingamez2028d ago (Edited 2028d ago )

all souls games are "inspired" by fromsoftwares previous games that came out WAY before shadow of the snorefest, see shadow tower abyss and kingsfield

compared to souls games shadow of the colossus is a bleak, boring, trite, unfinished mess

In an interview with Miyazaki (creator of DS1 BB and DeS) he stated that the reason he left his old job and became a game dev is because ico and SotC inspired him and wanted to make games that tell a story with minimum words/cutscenes

SuperSonic912028d ago

People people don't know their games....

Infact Miyazaki's games are HEAVILY INFLUENCED by SOTC

In what reality are any of those games inspired by Shadow of the Colossus? WTF? The Soulsborne games are successors to King's Field, which came before SotC.

SuperSonic912027d ago (Edited 2027d ago )


Miyazaki said it himself... read please and wipe your tears away https://www.rollingstone.co...

PS. He joined Fromsoftware in 2004 because of Fumito Ueda's story telling integrated to game play mechanics.

Facts mate, facts. His game's difficulty is influenced by SOTC Enjoy!

SuperSonic912027d ago

Naughty Dog directors said it themselves. Ueda's games influnced Uncharted Nd TLOU
from the get go.

Sirk7x2027d ago (Edited 2027d ago )

Twilight Princess? The Zelda formula was created in the 80s man. Also, Resident Evil 4 came out before Shadow of the Colossus. I'd also argue that the combat system in the Souls games took influence from Monster Hunter, although Fromsoftware has been in the game for a very long time. Not that Shadow of the Colossus wasn't fantastic. I think that, Ico and Okami really cemented the idea that games could be incredibly artistic, and probably has inspired loads of creativity since.

It’s still unfair how the Witcher 3 stole all the spotlight from this masterpiece. Witcher 3 is good but Horizon already surpassed it with its superior combat system, while BB still remains unmatched.

SuperSonic912027d ago

No worries Japan Studio's games stand the test of time. Bloodborne will be remembered for a long time.

What is the best game this gen from your thoughts? Don't PM me either.

It's in my top 5 games of all time.


madforaday2028d ago

I was going to say, BB is one of my top 5 games of all time maybe even in the top 3. No matter how much I love Mario 64, Bloodborne beats Mario 64 in every department. I think nostalgia gets to a lot of people.

Nintentional2027d ago

Really, because my nostalgia for games like Castlevania Circle of the Moon, and Aria of Sorrow are what make me absolutely love Bloodborne even more.

I almost excusively use the Threaded Cane in that game, it makes me think of what it would be like if Konami still gave a crap about Castlevania and made a new one.

Uken122027d ago

Bloodborne is an awesome game. Great environment, cool story, cool concept and very fresh.
But it has some huge flaws imo. If someone told me it was their greatest game of this gen, I would understand.

Mario64 is still amazing, nostalgia has nothing to do with it. I actually beat it 100% on my wii U before Odyssey released. The controls are still great and everything. The problem is that no Mario after that has pushed Mario64 to even further levels.
Also BB and Mario64 aren't good comparisons. If you like one style of game over the other, than that is a different story.

But Bloodborne pales in comparison to it's predecessor, DARK SOULS. Less content, less customization, less of everything. Dark Souls has better Boss design also.

Zelda: BotW so far is my game of the Generation. But we have quite a few good ones. Also Mario 3D World is up there. Full game Destiny 1 is pretty awesome. Bloodborne is one of my tops for this gen for sure.

Prubar2027d ago

I own all consoles but consider myself an Xbox fan. With that said BB is definitely in my top ten. Everything about it is right up my alley.

Sgt_Slaughter2027d ago

Mario 64 is still to this day very playable and the only real issue is the camera, but a 3D open world camera from 1996 is always going to be wonky. Of course Bloodborne would beat it in every department, a game from 2015 better be better than a game from 1996 or it's got problems.

They can co-exist on the same level, they don't have to be compared to each other or put one over the other.

madforaday2027d ago

For some reason you guys think I am comparing those games which I wasn't. I was going to put Goldeneye but I just put Mario 64. I still play Mario 64 on my 64.

@Uken12, one of the main reasons why I love BB more is that it doesn't have tons of weapons and have less customizations. The thing BB has is more unique weapons compared to Dark Souls. Just because you have 15 different Great swords doesn't mean you have 15 unique Great Swords. You have one with a different stat but the moveset is the same. Nostaliga as A LOT to do with it and we don't even know. I was 12 years old around when Mario 64 came out, of course, the me now, as a totally different mindset when it comes to this industry. Zelda is one of my favorite games but I just have a hard time with the story. My first hour into the game, Fight Ganon, I am like soo that is it? I personally don't like that ,of course, you get some story elements with Memories but I don't think this is the first time we are fighting Ganon. I always have a hard time pushing forward in games where there is a limited story. The same concept is with Mario Odyssey. I just ended up watching my GF do most of it because I have no urge to move forward in my game. The moons in that game are so simple and easy to get. Mario 64 stars were unique in their own way which was amazing.

Same. It reminded me so much of Castlevania. I absolutely adored Bloodborne.

Smitty20202028d ago

I haven’t had chance too play the game yet, it’s downloaded onto my ps4 but need too find the time too play 😔 I hate work lol

G20WLY2028d ago

It's popularity is about to explode all over again, thanks to being free on PS Plus right now!

With Bloodborne, Ratchet & Clank (!) and three other games for PS4 this month alone, PS+ is killing it!!

Silly Mammo2027d ago

I wonder if they released it to the masses because a BB2 is in the works? Basically, giving it away enlarges the fan base.

SourtreeDing2027d ago


ithink BB2 is coming this yr
