It’s human nature. When it comes time to talk game of the year we very rarely think back to the first six months of the calendar. The release schedule tends to be November heavy, so it’s easy to forget.
Consider this a timely reminder of how gorgeous Bloodborne was.
These panorama shots were taken by Reddit user XD0013812 and I am in love with them.
I’ve always felt this way about From Software games: you may argue their games don’t look as good as other, don’t perform as well, but it’s difficult to deny the breadth of detail — that commitment to detail. It’s evident in the art, which manages to borrow tropes, but subvert them and build upon them. Bloodborne in particular feels like a new interesting universe. Whereas the Souls games could be mistaken for generic high fantasy upon first glimpse, the towering Victorian architecture — the density of it, the claustrophobia — feels far more indentifiably original. I think that’s why I love the Bloodborne universe so much.
That’s just a few of the shots, head here to see more. These are some great shots.
