I picked up Bloodborne.

I don't really know why I did.  Well... yes I do.  I needed another game that I can work at a little each day while I'm on my exercise bike.  But what I meant is that I typically wouldn't pick it up since it's not my kind of game.

Bloodborne is brutally hard and I didn't enjoy the last two games from the same creator.  But, I watched some gameplay videos and could tell that this game controlled much better than those.  Bad controls were my major hurdle getting into the predecessors to this, so I thought I would give Bloodborne a try.

I'm really bad at the game.  I die a lot.  When I start to think I'm getting better I am constantly proven wrong.  But I keep coming back.  It's kind of mindless exploration and slowly getting better at the game.  At least I think I'm getting better.  It's really hard to tell.

I don't know if I like the game or not.  I keep playing it because it's something to do while I'm on my exercise bike, but I don't know if I could really recommend it.  It's not a game I would ever sit down with for a night and just play.  It's best experienced in short bursts for me.  It's filling a weird little niche in my gaming library, and I'm ok with that.

I'm playing Bloodborne consistently each day but I don't have strong opinions on it one way or another.  This is strange because typically I can get my head around a game very quickly.  I feel like very soon I'm either going to give up on the game entirely or it's going to finally click with me and I'll love it.
