Challenge: How Would You Convince A Total n00b to Play Bloodborne?
Before you answer, let's clarify something:
The term "n00b" shouldn't be used to describe an incompetent individual. In my view, it's simply used to describe someone who isn't used to playing video games, or maybe a certain type of game.
For example, I will forever be a fighting and RTS n00b because I really don't play those genres. I can play them if I have to (got pretty good at DoA and MK at one point) but for the most part, when compared with avid fans of either genre, I'm pretty hopeless. So, considering the difficulty and style of the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive Bloodborne, what would you say to an action/RPG n00b to get them to play it? Bear in mind that you'd have to explain the game honestly, so it might be that much harder to make your case.
I'm just wondering if it's even possible. Can you really convince someone who has never played Demon's Souls or Dark Souls to dive into Bloodborne? Why do I keep thinking the only people buying this games are already hardcore From Software fans? But you need to garner new fans with each new product, right? So, the question remains: If it was up to you to convince a total n00b to play this game, how would you broach and present your argument?
