Why is Bloodborne so overrated? It's not better than the trilogy preceding it. Is it because of the casualization, just mashing buttons like a hack & slash and lack of builds?

          You guys are aware side stepping and rolling(even compared to DaS dodges) has the exact i-frames right? It's just an aesthetic difference. Side stepping also covers less distance and maybe a little bit faster but that's it. Rolling and side-stepping feels same to me.

          I agree Sekiro is probably the best. But I didn't even need to farm herbs in Demon Souls 1 and I thought it was a shit game.

        BB takes a lot of story from Demon's because originally it was DeSII. The conceit of losing your humanity and turning into a monster is part and parcel of Demon's whole point. Because guess what guys? Demon's and BB have the same ending. You replace the old boss and become the new boss. They only added an obscure mechanic in order to obfuscate who the real boss was.

        I played dark souls on xbox 360 without internet in the winter of 2011, cope and seethe
        I played BB for the first time last yera and completed DS3 for the first time last year after being unable to finish it on release because of how fucking unfun it was
        havent played ER because not going to download win10 and it looks so genuinely tedious and unfun I don't wana even borrow my gf's ps4 to play it like I did bloodborne
        I played through BB on three characters with three builds, did all the chalice dungeons and got to queen Yarnham, I can speak on it all I want
        it has a lot of shitty game systems like having to farm bullets and blood vials as opposed to just respawning with them like estus, early game can be trivialized with press r1 and rally, I beat cleric beast by literally transforming my axe and mashing r1 til it died without dodging anything
        the game does such a bad job of teaching you its own mechanics in central yarnham i didnt really 'know' how to play the game until around amelia, I just brute forced gascoigne and cleric beast with rally or dodging
        it's also just generally lacking in lack of playstyles
        weapons are really scarce and your magic is tied to a few shitty items, I would really like there to have at least been an arcane gun that can parry and is just a little potshot cantrip
        no reason blacksky eye couldnt be a gun for example
        EVERYTHING is super casualized all the weapons scale with evry stat half the time and the lack of upgrade paths being replaced with gems meaning that you dont have to actually find or spend resources on upgrade mats really, and you'll get all the gme souy need to play the base game/dlc from just beating enemies and exploring so why even bother with the system when its usually just flat upgrading damage up

            I kneel to my predecessor, DeSfren
            I didn't know about souls games when I still owned a ps3 and obviously don't have a ps5
            if I can snipe a ps3 for under 100$ on ebay I will buy DeS and give it a go since I've been meaning to for literally over 11 years now
            I understand enough through osmosis that DeS and DaS are vastly vastly different games, and I can't actually rate anything about DeS without playing it, other than that I can say it looks like another fun slow calculated slogfest like DaS just without the interconnected world [probably the strongest point of DaS's an BB's superiority over everything else tbh]

              So now the spells are shit? The whole reason why they are good is because they keep scaling since there's no casting tools. Using them at lower levels feels like garbage in my experience.
              There would be no reason to go bloodtinge would be my point, aside from the bloodtinge specific weapons which are outclassed by quality builds anyway.

      DS is better than the sum of it‘s parts. It succeeds as a gesamtkunstwerk. It understands you need to tell an adventure with an arc, hence why you descend to quelaags layer and instead of teleporting you have to walk all the way up and through sens to anor londo.
      It understands soul. Characters like andre aren‘t just placed at firelink to be tped to whenever you feel like it. They have their own distinct place in the world that isn‘t always accessible which makes it a real treat anytime you see them.

          why bother the gem system to change my weapon to bolt dmg when I could just put a lightning infuse instead, it's bloat and complexity for the sake of difference
          fast travel unlocked from the start but ONLY to the hub and back out, no selected warping, meaning you have to sit through load screens upon load screens to do anything besides just run from area to area, this includes getting items out of your storage because most of them just don't restock themselves from your overstock, because they just don't. except the ones that do, because consistency is unnecessaryThe game is fun, the setting and atmosphere are masterclass, but it could be better, much better.. 8/10 would play again, second best game after ds1
          Maria's fight was 'tense' because she does damage and has flashy combos to surprise you your first few attempts but she can be parried easily and I find her to be just kinda 'there' like amelia or bsb or something, a roadblock to a much better fight past her
          gehrman was very fun to fight tho, because how much he dashes around and swaps weapon stances and shoots you, it literally was the closest any fromsoft game i've come to fighting my 'clone', his playstyle was so similar to mine despite our weapons being so different my first playthrough, he shot when I would try to shoot or would've thought to, he rushes in when I make distance, he does jump attacks when I'm being cocky
          he's literally me bros.....

          fucking thank you, DS1's world crafting is absolute best in show, the GOTYAY, ds3 'gamified' it too much, it was just a fast dark souls because zoom zoom big sword slash fun dodge roll pow, DS3 was playing dark souls on bloodborne's speed, when all the engagement in dark souls comes from the slow methodical playstyle of learning the enemies and the world, the loopingback on itself is litearlly what makes the world feel so alive and fleshed out

            Maria didn't really elicit any strong feelings character wise. The fight I thought was pretty easy with parrying, when she started floating in the air surrounded by blood it really jumped the shark. I died just because me and my older brother were laughing our asses off. Orphan and Ludwig carried the DLC in my opinion.

      How? The quick step is an insanely good form of dodge and you have rally, parrying with the gun is also far easier than parrying with a shield. The only thing BB has over souls is arguably Orphan who is very difficult but there's Souls/ER bosses that could be considered harder.

    I recently finished Elden Ring. How does Bloodborne compare, difficulty-wise? In ER you can grind runes and trivialize all but a couple of fights by overleveling it, not to mention stuff like Mimic Tear and Tiche, builds like magic or bleed one breaking the game, etc. Is the same the case with this game, or is the default difficulty fairly higher?
