I would be VERY surprised if they do any kind of new techniques with this old graphics engine. I would think along the lines of the revisions that came to the PC for Horizon. Higher resolution, 60FPS, HDR, HBAO, better anisotropic filtering, etc..

Reminded me of this tweet about screen-space reflections in the game. Minor effect, but it'll enhance any PC or PS5 versions.

No I haven't played Bloodborne. I'll play it if it comes to PC. if the PC rumors aren't true, guess not.
This quote...

Bloodborne isn't the best fromsoftware game ever. The best Miyazaki game is between Dark Souls and Dark Souls 3. I heard Bloodborne Multiplayer is a joke compared to the Souls series. Souls Games have better bosses, weapons, playstyles, armor, enemies, lore and multiplayer is still going strong.
Makes this quote look silly.

If you haven’t played it then you have no right to say it’s not the best.

1. Bloodborne
2. Sekiro
3. Dark Souls
4. Dark Souls 3
5. Demons Souls

Dark Souls 2 is actually 5th with DeS 6th. Not included since Miyazaki didn’t direct it.

This dude knows what's up. Bloodborne is indeed #1. Everything about it is just sublime. Sekiro is definitely 2nd best.

The rest can be swapped around depending on opinion.

Yes.

And you are talking nonsense as a coping mechanism because you are yet to play it.

Maybe some day you will and we can have a real discussion about the games merits vs the other games From have made.

i respect that.

i'm torn on Dark Souls 1 + 3 tbh. both great games and feel quite similar. Souls 2 is very divisive but i quite enjoyed it more than others it seems.

i don't like how you ranked Sekiro though. that makes me sad.

are you being serious? Coping mechanism because I have yet to play bloodborne. what does that even mean.

Maybe someday I'll play it when it comes to PC and I no I don't need to have a discussion about the games merit with you whenever I finish it.

people saying bloodborne / sekiro are the best are blind and unable to step back and see they just prefer action over rpg that is all.
opinion over bloodborne / sekiro will mostly differ because of that when it comes to gameplay / game design.
I prefer rpg it's why bloodborne and sekiro are the Miyazaki's game i prefer the least.
I hope Elden ring will please rpg fan more than action ones.
There is a good chance since he did an action game with sekiro.(finger crossed)

only your opinion about Bloodborne is invalid.
For example i played it, i love it and i can say it's not the best becasue Dark Souls and Demon's Souls are imho. I don't care if someone disagrees but i can offer my opinion because it's an informed one.

Bloodborne is rpg though? The only outlier is Sekiro.

On what grounds can you dispute someone else saying it's From's best work when you haven't even had the opportunity to play it?

You're disputing someone else's opinion without being in an informed position yourself.

Go play it then come back.

Unpopular opinion but the combat in Sekiro is just a rhythm game. Looks magical when done correctly.

it offers less than demon/dark soul in build diversity/capability department.
it's already favoring action because of multiple mechanics and what is purposely left out.

I hate ranking Souls Games. I think all of them are good. Dark Souls 2 isn't a bad game.

Doesnt matter if it offer less or more, it still has build veriaty with different type of gear and stats. It is very much a faster Dark Souls game. The same thing cannot be said about Sekiro. Bb is every bit a rpg as ds is.

Bloodborne is the best fromsoftware game ever. My opinion that Dark Souls games are much better is invalid.

Bloodborne is the best, I really have no real reason to go play it anymore.

If you have not played it you cannot possibly make that call. How can you when you have no experience with one of the most highly rated titles of the catalogue.

Bloodborne is the best, I really have no real reason to go play it anymore.

Let me get this straight, just because someones opinion that Bloodborne is the best soulsborne game you don't need to play it now? That is backwards thinking imo, you should absolutely be thinking the opposite surely? You don't play games just to rank them do you?

My Souls ranking:
1, 3, De, 2.

Why is it short? Because I haven’t yet played Bloodborne or Sekiro. It’s an undeniable truth that you can’t pass judgement on games if you’re using others’ judgement. By definition that’s not you judging them. Your list is your list. That’s all they’re saying.

Funnily enough, I also felt like this with the bosses in DS3. Except there, instead of deflecting in rhythm, I was rolling in rhythm. It was quite satisfying.

As for Sekiro, I don't think it's an unpopular opinion. It's how the game wants to be played, and it's how it excels.

What are the chances of Bluepoint doing a "Bloodborne Remastered"? At this point it looks like FromSoftware have too much on their plate, but Bluepoint could port the game to PS5 and PC. I don't think Sony would allow them to make a patch for the existing version of Bloodborne.

IMO, it's too soon. Why pay 70$ for a remake of a ps4 game, when you can play that game on ps5 by just having ps+?

You've got it all wrong.

1. DS 1.
2. Demon Souls Remake.
3. DS 3.
4. Bloodborne.
5. DS 2.

It surprises me how people overlook BB's frame pacing and technical problems. If it weren't for those then yes, it would likely be top.

I still just flat out adore DS 1 though.

what technical problems? the frame pacing is annoying for like 5 minutes in 2 areas of the game. sure it'd be better at 60-144fps with better pacing but you're being ridiculous. it's perfectly playable and enjoyable as it is and i say that as someone who is used to playing at 144fps.

It chugs all the way though. And the 30fps is painful.

Don't get me wrong; wonderful game - but all the other titles are playable in 60fps + glory.

I mean they could sell a remaster, 20$ or something if you already own the game, 60$ if you're a first time buyer.

Just making a patch to unlock the framerate and bump the resolution to 4k should be easy enough to make (If one modder can do it it can't be that hard for sony)

Lmao at Dark Souls in first position. Demon's Souls (OG and Remake) and Bloodborne are the better games.

Yeah but do we really need a remaster? It's not an old game and looks really good even today.

All it needs is that 60fps patch.

Why?

I absolutely adore it. I don't think any other From game has come close to capturing the magic of that game. The aesthetic is perfect; it's like a waking nightmare.

The second half does drag, but I still think it's an absolute masterpiece.

I fired up Bloodborne after finishing up Demon's Souls on PS5, and I had forgotten just how much fun BB is.

My personal ranking:
Bloodborne
Dark Souls
Demon's Souls
Dark Souls 3
Sekiro
Dark Souls 2

I really didn't click with Sekiro, in spite of trying multiple times. I really don't like DS2.

Lmao.

Dark Souls is a good game since it's a From Software game, so it ended up being better than most games in the industry. But in essence is just a rehash from Demon's Souls published by Bandai Namco. It is worse than Demon's Souls in basically every way possible. It borrows a lot of ideas and themes from DeS, but the execution is worse. I feel like Miyazaki enjoys way more when he creates original experiences like DeS, Bloodborne and i hope Elden Ring now.

DeS has better story, aesthetics, atmosphere and characters. World and level design are way better and handcrafted, while Dark Souls have pretty empty and generic areas. Difficulty and character builds are way better too.

The only thing Dark Souls has an advantage is arguably the game length.

Yes, it was. I think there's an element of that in everyone's favourites.

A little like how Link to the Past is my favourite Zelda, when so many of the later games are objectively better or, at least, did many things objectively better.

Same for me. DS1 was my first souls and although I could see Bloodborne or Sekiro being better games, DS1 is and always be my favorite.
