I haven’t even finished a game from the series since Dark Souls, and even then I had to force myself to do that about a year after I first beat O&S. Pretty deep-seated burnout of the series as a whole followed soon after.
Bloodborne is more a side-step from Dark Souls as opposed to any real step forward. Much like your assessment of the first game (which is pretty apt, if I may say so) the game is alright, but doesn’t really hold any lasting appeal if you’re not bothered with its hilariously bad PvP.
Still has the best aesthetic, setting and themes in the entire series, though.
