In just five years, you’ve scaled mountains, taken down giant beasts, faced your biggest fears and become the hero of countless adventures.
My favorite game this gen. I both hope and fear for a sequel, considering I'm not a big fan of the Dark Souls sequels, so I fear it could end up like that. But I still want more Bloodborne.
I'm still here wishing Sekiro was Bloodborne 2. Sekiro does look amazing though but dear oh dear Gerhman needs to join the hunt
i was skeptical of sekiro at first - but it's looking like a fun game.
They have to be working on it. There's no way Sony wouldn't have this in the works already.
That's what we all said about Demon's Souls 2 especially after Dark Souls hit mainstream audiences and Demon's Souls was still highly popular and generally considered the best of those games.
Game of the Generation
Had to think about it for a bit but I think I agree. Only game I've put as much time in this gen is Rocket League.
I wonder how many quit soon after, its actually hardest at the start.
Not for me it wasn't, I got a decent rhythm down and finally figured out the core elements to progress but I finally got up to several bosses I just couldn't shake. (Martyr Logarius, The One Reborn, Ebrietas)
I couldn't find a way to get out of the gated area outside the first house, so I quit.
I gave up on the first boss. And I platinum it later.
I really wonder have many DEATHS that equates out to.
For people who've never played a Souls game before perhaps. Hardest area in the game is the Unseen Village by far.
By the time I got there I was getting pretty good at the game. Even after playing souls games it takes me a few hours to get good again.
Ludwig on Ng+ is crazy hard and Father G hahahaha and he's the first main boss.
Just finished it for the first time a few days ago. 8/10. Great but definitely overrated and not perfect like everyone says. It's my first Souls-type game, though I did download and play Demons Souls back in the day when it was on + and I played it for about 2 days but had to delete it cause I didn't have alot of room on my internal HD. I'm going back to Demons once I finish NG+ on BB.
I know it’s not a 10/10... but the game is in the low 90’s on metacritic. To call it ‘overrated’ is a bad opinion.
The reason it may be overrated is because From Software had Demons Souls and Dark Souls 1 and 2 on their resume and made fanboys out of people so they couldn't see any flaws in Bloodborne. You make it seem like my 8/10 is a 1.5/10.
“you make it seem like my 8/10 is a 1.5/10” lol. I’m doing no such thing.
It's not a 10/10 game, it's a 11/10 in my opinion !! :) I platinumed almost 70 games on the PS4 but Bloodborne will forever have a very special place in my gamingheart, that's for sure. Game Of The Generation for me !!!
‘Overrated’ is what people say when they don’t like something other people like.
I agree. It's by no means the perfect game people try to frame it as. That said, I'm glad so many people got to play it. It reminded me of DMC on PS2; the darkness and the tight gameplay make the formula so easy to get lost in even when you're getting your ass kicked for hours. Classic game for sure.
hahaha - yeah right. It's one of the few games that critics and gamers both agree on. Not overrated in the slightest. It's a great game and deserves all the hype that it still gets.
What killed Bloodborne for me was the low framerate, stupid long load times and the absolutely horrendous forced chromatic aberration filter that made the entire game look like shit.
Haha “looks like shit.” You are a funny one
What? So you are saying the excitement for Bloodborne was unwarranted because of From Soft’s record? Bloodborne is a masterpiece and it is not perfect, certainly not as perfect as your imaginary “fanboys” are making you believe. No one says “”Bloodborne is a flawless game,” but overall it’s a solid game so excuse us mister. We rather enjoy the game than nitckpiking and making non gamebteaking issues ruin our experience
There's many videos on Bloodborne being a masterpiece. I struggle to find videos where they can objectively critique the game. Maybe it's because I owe no allegiance to any developer or game franchise, that I can point out it's flaws. I'm almost done with NG+ and the game is even easier than the first playthrough. Still an 8/10. And you can close you eyes and give it 12/10 if you want and pretend it's perfect if you'd like. And yes, you sound like a fanboy, you seem upset with with my score. Oh well.
Great game, didn't finish it but got about half way through. Bosses got too hard and the victories weren't rewarding enough to stick with it
Uhh.. Do you remember what boss was giving you trouble?
Yup, 3 of them actually. Last ones I fought were Martyr Logarius, The One Reborn, and Ebrietas. Daughter of the Cosmos
Considering 2 of them were optional.. it sounds like you just gave up trying to beat The One Reborn.
It does get repetitive after the halfway point and one of the final bosses was rather lame but most of the bosses are pretty easy. But there will be a couple that will probably have you use a bell to get some help.
I feared all Soul games until I saw Bloodborne! I bought BB & I fell in love!! Yes the game has some challenging bosses but you learn from your mistakes & with patience,timing you overcome & slaughter every boss. Now the Chalice Dungeons & the bosses in the dlc are a different beast they can be very difficult but every boss in the main story can be put down moderately.
Over 11 million served.
Makes a mockery out of that supposed Switch (dis)grace's calling card sales figures - Mario Odyssey.
Top 5 game for me this generation. The platinum isn’t too hard.
Well the game was free on PS Plus earlier this year, I'm sure that helped. Anyway, still one of the best games of the generation for sure.
Never finished this game. After I killed the mushroom boss I got stuck and didn’t know what the hell to do next. Game didn’t tell me where to go so I just gave up
https://gamefaqs.gamespot.c... Check this out (14 pages) just scroll through it until you find out where to go. You got plenty fun left :)
That area is entirely optional. You found the key to the Upper Cathedral Ward in in Yahar'gul, Unseen Village..(Story) you should have beaten The One Reborn while you were in Yahargul. been transferred to the Lecture Buidling 2nd floor, arrived in Nightmare of Mensis, beaten Mikolash and Mergo’s Wet Nurse.. then travelled back to the Hunter’s dream to confront Gherman. (from my recollection).
game didn't hold my hand so i gave up. That's what i read lol sad though
Getting lost and finding the game hard are two different things you elitist clem
Didn't they give it out free with +?
Yes, says so in the article.
That's pretty much exactly twice the amount of people that live in my country, Finland. It's crazy to think about. Congratulations!!
One of the best games for the PS4 and pretty much this gen that I have played. Loved the whole gothic atmosphere and just like the Souls series I love the hidden lore behind it all.
PS4 Pro patch.
bruh they patched dark 3 on ps4 and not bloodborne... they could have uncapped the frame rate that way we could have played it at 60fps on ps5. Imagine bloodborne at 60...
Or maybe PS5 will be backwardscompatible but they still release a "Bloodborne Remastered" with true 4K textures and 60 Fps. That would be a Day One for me for sure. Even better would be if they just added a 4K patch for free ofc, but I realise it costs money to have developers make the actual textures.
I guess 60FPs is cool?
Amazing game - my favorite of this gen. For anyone struggling with it - there are a ton of help videos. I’m a busy guy, so I would go through a new area and discover as much as I could on my own, and then watch a walk-through of the level to see what I missed - which was less and less as I learned the game. Same with bosses - I only sought help if I got killed a bunch of times and was obviously missing a key tactic. You can find videos to show good soul farming locations - which helped a lot.
I played it for about 3 hours and then never picked it up again. Do I count as one of these 11,000,000? It's a great game, just not for me. None of the souls-like games interest me. Also, didn't they give this away for free on PSN+? I feel like that kind of stacks numbers.
Reading the article is highly recommended.
Time for Demon's Souls remaster and Bloodborne 2, take the hint Sony.
Demons Souls would be nice.
I platinumed it
Its a fantastic game. My opinion better than souls and more challenging, the scenery in the back you can just stare for ages
This and demon souls one of my favorite games and Sony exclusives.
But some say there'll never be a sequel. Really? It'll be made, probably in the next 2 years.
Would have hoped for more honestly, since it was on PS+.
My favorite game this Gen easily I want bloodborne 2 on ps5 :)
I'm more of a Souls player than Bloodborne because I like to hide behind a greatshield wearing the heaviest (and ideally best looking) armour available but Bloodborne forced me into relying on my reflexes and instincts and it was a fantastic experience. One of the best games of all time imo as is Dark Souls 1.
the game is good, so the high number of players should not be a surprise
My favorite game of all time. And I've been gaming since the Atari. Now if only they made a PS Pro patch I'd die a happy man!
My only regrets with this game is I have not found the time to play the DLC. Also that it never got a PS4 Pro patch.
You can still play the DLC... Be warned... if you’re not patient you’ll probably end up putting it down.
This number needs to increase to EVERY LIVING HUMAN BEING.
Bloodborne is one step away from perfection to most of us. The way this game fits together like a macabre puzzle is just insane and done with so much style. It's one of the few real 9/10 games out there. It defines its own space, and very few games can even come close and that's across all genres.
Well for a company who has well over 80 million consoles I sure hope so. Plus wasn't it free?
I got to a certain point and it got too hard. I think I went somewhere before I was at a high enough level to be there. I told myself I'll get back to it. That was a year ago. I love the game but now if I go back I feel that I'll be lost and not remember where to go.
It's tough between Witcher 3 and Bloodborne. Witcher 3's storytelling and quests were top notch, and Bloodborne's combat, difficulty, lore were fantastic too. These two are absolutely tied for me. I can't decide which game I had more fun with, even after mulling it over for extended periods of time.
