It's definitely my favourite one. There's a pulse pounding intensity behind the fighting which works for me far better than the methodical Souls games.

Because there's such a fluidity to it, I found myself much more inclined to take risks and have fun with the game, whereas I'd always end up grinding out victories behind my shield in the first Souls game.

It's so so close between Dark Souls and BB for me, but if you pushed me for an answer I think Bloodborne edges it as I prefer it's world/combat & on top of that it's probably the most complete and well rounded From soft game. BRING ON THE ELDEN RING!

I think I need to go back to Bloodborne don't I? Think I'm roughly at the same point Buska mentioned but something else came along at the time and I've not been back since. As someone who's never played a Souls game I've thought about it and I'd have to say Bloodborne is the better game.

I actually really like the rhythm of combat in the original Dark Souls. That might be because I played it a lot like Bloodborne; I dodged more than I blocked, and I loved the parry. Parrying is my favourite mechanic in most games - apart from maybe a Bayonetta dodge - and Bloodborne leans even harder into that side of things.

I also like that the way the health system works encourages me to push on further from wherever I'm currently based - in Dark Souls, sometimes I'd get a ways from the last bonfire and be really desperate to find another one. I've heard people mention grinding, though I'm being a hoarder so far and hoping that won't come up.

Currently, I'm not feeling BB's world in quite the same way as DS, but I'm just more of a fan of fantasy and mythology than I am gothic victorian horror. I've heard this takes a turn for the Lovecraftian later though, so I might be swayed by that.

Definitely has Lovecraftian elements to it, although the extent to which you will encounter some of them depends on how you play. It would be nice to hear how you get on with each of the boss battles. There are some really good ones in there as you would expect.

I think I still prefer Dark Souls to Bloodborne, but it may be I ended up playing DS1, BB and DS3 in such close proximity that I kind-of burned out. Still good though, and I felt like a clever person for beating it.

I played all of them well spaced out. DS3 is probably the game I had the most fun with. Having gone through Bloodborne and the original, I was pretty good at the games by then. This meant I used to help other players against the more challenging bosses. Probably the only time where I have received nothing but nice messages from players via PSN messenger. For that reason, DS3 is probably my favourite multiplayer game on the PS4 to play solo... if that makes any sense!

I can understand why people adore DS1, and I have a lot of respect for it in terms of design, but it's not one I enjoyed playing on my own! Oddly it's probably the game I've completed the most outside of things on the Gameboy. I helped a friend get past the parts he was stuck on, and we ended up going through the whole game together over a few weeks. We beat it again later on, this time with him doing most of the heavy lifting. I think he's on the last few pluses of NG+ now!

The mulitplayer in DS3 really is fantastic! Had a lot of good times either in the PvP fight clubs that would pop up in certain areas as well as helping folk with certain bosses.
