Why I Now Have To Play All Of Bloodborne To Completion

Illustration for article titled Why I Now Have To Play All Of iBloodborne /iTo Completion

Starting this weekend, I will be picking up the PlayStation 4 game Bloodborne and starting a new playthrough. For the next few months, I will be finishing it. I don’t really want to, but I must. For Kotaku Splitscreen.

It’s not that I don’t like Bloodborne. I played through the first few bosses when it came out in 2015 and enjoyed it just fine, but by the seven- or eight-hour mark I felt like I’d gotten it. I was ready for the next video game.

Then came Kirk Hamilton.

Last January, Kirk (we miss u bud) and I each made 10 video game predictions for 2018, betting that whoever got more right would get to force the other to play a game of their choice. One could certainly argue that Kirk’s predictions were “too easy” or “stupid obvious” or “insultingly safe” but that’s neither here nor there. I lost, and therefore I will be playing Bloodborne.

Jason ... after monster hunter world, hollow knight and then finally playing Dark Souls Remastered on Switch, i would have tried to intentionally lose just to be forced to play Bloodborne.

Unfortunately for me I will have to wait for Bloodborne as I dont have a PS4 although I considering a refurb’d just to play Bloodborne.
