Well, i'm apparently nearing the last boss in Bloodbourne, and to be frank, its been a major let down, slow controls/gameplay, crappy online functions, bosses that are more tedious than technical, i could go on all day..... the setting and graphics are top notch no doubt, but lets be real here, the gameplay is tiresome and dull, its one thing having a hard boss that you can beat with skill, and its another thing beating one with a lot of long term tedious will..... Nioh and Ninja Gaiden 1 & 2 destroy this shallow wannabe hack 'n' shash game. END OF...!!!!!
First it's not Bloodbourne, it's BLOODBORNE. How can you expect to appreciate this game if you don't even get the name right, my friend?
And second your opinion is purely subjective and therefore only valid to you and you should have the humility to admit it and make a title that goes"Bloodborne is bad in MY HUMBLE OPINION because this and that..."
Controls and game play are perfectly adapted to this kind of game, quickly dodging an attack and then counter attacking is king in this game, but only if you are capable of doing it and if you are not, it's not the game's fault, it's yours either cause it's not your kind of game or simply cause you are not good at it.
I absolutely suck at fighting games like Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter and that does not mean those games are intrinsically bad, they are just not for me.
As for Nioh, I have not begun playing it and when I do, I'll be able to make a better comparison and maybe get back to you should this thread still be alive.
Bottom line, I'm sorry you did not enjoy Bloodborne but that is far from sufficient data to infer that this game is objectively bad.
