2. Bloodborne (2015)
It would be an understatement to say that Hidetaka Miyazaki’s games are hard. As a matter of fact, the Japanese designer’s Dark Souls game had the famous slogan “Prepare to die”. And Bloodborne certainly lived up to it in the difficulty department, as it is one of the hardest games ever made. This was a game that put players through hair pulling-difficult situations, and its dark gothic fantasy world featured creepy locations such as the city of Yarham, packed with terrifying enemies such as the wolf-like Scourge Beasts.
Defeating the Cleric Beast. Defeating the horned monstrosity that is the Cleric Beast was quite a challenge, as players were ill-equipped in the early stages of the game. Having to retreat old ground after losing to the Beast, and having to dispatch cleaver-wielding enemies to have another go at killing this boss was frustrating at times. But finally putting the Cleric Beast down and unlocking that first checkpoint was immensely satisfying.
