I didn't realize Bloodborne came out on XB1.

not sure how people consider bloodborne better than the witcher 3.

Probably because they enjoyed it more.  That would be my guess.

Bloodborne is one of my favs for the year but the witcher is definitely better than it. The witcher's story was very well written and the quests were often fun to play but sometimes, they were sobering or very dark or just hilarous. Farting cave trolls caused me to have a fit of laughs when I came across them especially since the game has a very serious tone.

I have seen games as big as the Witcher 3 and games with the same quality.

But a game as large as the Witcher 3 still retaining such a high level of quality blows my mind and it may well be my No.1 game of all time to be honest.

Still, there games game of the year choices I disagree with, aka giving it to bloodborne, and ones that piss me off like Polygon giving it to Her Story.



 

I'm gonna have to watch some gameplay about Her Story. I have no clue about it.

Bloodbourne is surely a great game that only 5% or less of the entire gaming population can actually enjoy

So cheers for elitist gaming.

 


So PS4 gamers are elitist gamers now? It's how big gaming companies encourage consumers to buy their device. Everything from consoles to pc use exclusives to do that. So in truth, everyone are elitists, so why are you whining about it? Don't have the platform the game is for? Buy it or be happy with what the platform(s) you do own. 

You misunderstand. Bloodbourne is inaccessible to anyone but the most hardcore gamer who has the patience and the sanity to endure loss after loss. The game is too hard and that's not a good thing. 

 

 

 

Wtf? You do realize that bloodborne is a extremely easy and accessable version of a souls game? You also realize that type of game is a part of genre now that's here to stay and there's a market for it? Not everyone likes games to lead 'em the way down a glowing path and show bosses weak point with glowing spots. BB sold fairly well and the market for that kind of game is growing. It has nothing to with elitism but everything do with providing players with geniune challenge. If you suck as a player, you die alot but eventually you learn from defeat then overcome whatever challenged you.

Or you can code in an easy mode so everyone can enjoy the game. It's like not building a handicap ramp because you are an asshole and like to watch people struggle.

BB is already on easy mode. Need any help up the ramp?

Has the percentage of overall gamers that can enjoy a game ever been a consideration for goty awards?  If that were the case wouldn't only the most simple and basic of mobile games wn because anyone can pick up and enjoy them?  Things like the rope cutting game or threes would be the only possible choices or you're just being a different level of "elitist".  



...

LOL at the people complaining about Bloodborne's difficulty. They should play Demon's Souls to know what difficult really means.
