Bloodborne is a game I went into not expecting to honestly like, I'd tried to get into it two times previously but never really could, which was weird because at the time I had greatly enjoyed Dark Souls.
Now that I finally played the game fully and appreciate it, I can say that maybe I had been too quick to write the game off initially.
I think the best part of this game and something all the other Souls titles(except Sekiro which I can't comment on because I haven't played as of writing) haven't replicated yet is its overwhelming aggressive playstyle, it is incredibly fun and a stark contrast from Ds1 especially.
This isn't to say there aren't some things that don't peeve, me, first of all(and this is purely a personal gripe due to how high my expectations were) I found myself disappointed with the main bosses, the late game/final ones and DLC one's carried the roster of them for me. The other issues are ones of minor inconveniences like having to farm heals or the fact the bonfires in this game suck ass.
Overall though, I have to admit it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, and it's a game that holds up, the atmosphere and horror aspect are truly great.
