Bloodborne Review “the game we needed”

Bloodborne, the highly anticipated fantasy role-playing game from From Software, is the game we needed.

I’m not going to beat around the bush; this console generation has been horrible so far. It’s been horrible because the games, besides a handful of them, haven’t lived up to their set expectations. They’ve mostly been good to look at, but lackluster to play.

With that being said, Bloodborne isn’t a game for everyone because you will indeed die a lot–and I mean die a lot. But, when it’s all said and done, Bloodborne absolutely worth experiencing. I’m going to put this out there; I didn’t beat the game. Actually, I couldn’t beat the game. However, the large portion of the game that I did indeed play was “fucking awesome,” for the lack of better words.

Bloodborne puts the players in the shoes of a Hunter slaying beasts. As to why? It’s not made fully clear. But, let’s be honest; you don’t really need to know as to why.

That dream and nightmare spectrum is probably the greatest thing Bloodborne portrays. It makes you question everything because nothing in the game conforms to the norm. Just like in real life, Bloodborne makes you question, what exactly is normal? It’s a perplexing question for any game to fundamental represent and Bloodborne does this perfectly. Continue reading
