The originality of Bloodborne can be an important lesson for developers to not get too comfortable staying within a familiar IP.
It was a pretty brilliant misdirection from from.
Tomorrow how uncharted 2 or killzone 2 proves that sequels are better than new ips lol
Sequels are better. But only Sony sequels lol.
Mass Effect 2 isn’t a “sony sequel” and is one of the greatest sequels of all time.
Sequels are better when they're made with a care to try and recapture the predecessor, while improving on the whole. They tend to be bad when they end up being focus tested and try to cram other things which seem popular elsewhere in an attempt to capture a wider audience...which is what happens with a lot of sequels.
I preferred Dark Souls 3
No way. Bloodborne was a game-changer. FromSoft is the best developer out there.
DS3 is a great game but I prefer an original masterpiece like Bloodborne to a refinement of a formula like DS3. It's a very good game but the seen it all before feel drags it down a tad for me.
From is better at making new IPs than sequels, that's all. Plenty of GREAT sequels franchises out there
I've got to agree. Demon's, DS1, BB were all masterpieces. Hopefully they'll keep the tradition with Elden Rings.
I find that to be different. Usually the second game is better. It's where the team refines the game and puts all the ideas they couldn't fit into their first game. Whenever you hear from a dev diary or video they always talk about the first game not having everything they wanted or cool concepts being scratched because they're too busy building the engine or assets for the first game.
I remember several games where the protagonist couldn't swim until the sequel. I agree that a lot of second games are better, God of War II and Killzone 2 for example.
I loved all From's games since Dark Souls 1, never played demon's souls. Sekiro and Bloodborne are awesome (im only halfway through bloodborne, bought a ps4 just to play it no joke lol), but I feel like they really knocked it out of the park with DS3. That game is so damn good, i love almost everything about it
New IPs are always better than sequels.
I definitely think Fromsoft are best with new ideas for sure. Sekiro has it haters, but i enjoyed it far more then any of the dark souls sequels. Bloodborne was my favourite one, but I doubt they can make a sequel for it as good.....but, I'd love to be wrong.
