I can't get into any Souls like game. Maybe it's because I'd rather grind for hours and get it done at a reasonable amount of tries than just fail and fail over and over again with little to no progress. Slow and steady progress seems more rewarding.
With Bloodborne I accidentally went to the high level area first, got too much blood (xp) and good items. Was very frustrating for the hour or so, but then after that the easier part of the game was so trivial.
If you do grind, you can make these games quite easy imo.
