With a current Metascore of 93, Bloodborne has wowed the critics.
Chances are, it'll sell pretty darn well, too. Perhaps most importantly, though, is the fact that it appears to be precisely what this generated needed: A legit "net-gen," top-tier, AAA title.
It also helps that it's a PlayStation 4 exclusive; that system definitely needed a boost in the exclusive software category. Now that From Software's gem is earning widespread praise, we have to consider that we're looking at the best game of the new generation thus far. And in fact, it's not so much a "new" generation anymore, so it's great to see a game shoot up the review charts. If you don't count re-releases and remasters, Bloodborne is definitely top dog right now.
Dragon Age: Inquisition 's 89 score for PS4 appears to be the closest. Other high-scoring games so far are Velocity 2X and Ori and the Blind Forest but in terms of big-budget, high-profile games, it has really been about the Remasters. Maybe Bloodborne is the start of a new – and very positive – trend.
