As the pile of games I've beaten over the years becomes more and more massive, I've become aware that a lot of video games follow many similar patterns to one another. How they present themselves, how they handle progression, but most importantly, how they act towards the player. Many games give you direction, or at least the sense of what you should be doing, trying their best to point you down the path that will lead to progress. Bloodborne is absolutely nothing like most games, throwing the player into an unknown world and letting them carve out their path, however they like. While it did sometimes push me to my absolute limit, for every soul crushing defeat there is a victory that made me pump my fist in the air and shout in triumph.
Bloodborne's DLC is finally revealed and Japan gets a release date for it.
We're a little over half way through the year and it's easy to see that 2015 is shaping up to be one of the best years gaming has seen in a long time. Amidst declarations against remasters and some disrespectfully bug-laden launches (Assassin's Creed Unity on every platform it touched), 2014 was certainly a hard year for a lot of people to get through.
With a new year comes renewed promise, and the first half of 2015 has seen a landslide of wonderful gaming experiences. On top of that, with games like Fallout 4, Mad Max, Star Fox Zero, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and Transformers: Devastation releasing in the months ahead (as well as many others), it's clear that this is the year that many of us have been waiting for.
It's an exciting time to be playing and enjoying videogames. Without further ado, here are the 9 games that have best defined 2015 so far (in order of release). Agree or disagree, we'd love to see your opinion in the comments below!
Prepare to die for the third time.
When you awake bleary-eyed from dreams of fire, blood, and malformed faces only to find yourself in unfamiliar surroundings lying upon a sterile medical table, it’s only natural to feel out of your element. Once you’ve been savaged by werewolves, giants, and pitchfork-wielding maniacs after taking to the streets, you’ll feel out of your depth.
If you want more out of the world of Yharnam, you're going to get it.
Like many PlayStation 4 owners, I have been completely obsessed with From Software's Bloodborne since its March 24th release. I am a "Souls" virgin, meaning I have never played either of the Dark Souls games. I played a little of Demon's Souls and absolutely hated it at the time. As someone who tries to actively keep on top of all of the latest and greatest games in the industry, missing this crucial output from From Software has always stung.
Sony has released a 1.03 patch which fixes a number of issues people have had with the game.
