just to pre-warn anyone i will be going into spoilers for bloodborne and some of Lovecrafts works!!
So i finished bloodborne a few months back and thought that the themes were fantastic but had no idea that it was so clearly influenced by Lovecraft having not read anything he'd written, someone told me about the themes being tied to Lovecraft so i thought id try out some of the books!
I will now forever be obsessed with Lovecraft, ive read everything there is to read by him, its strange how i had no idea how much of his influence is everywhere and be completely ignorant of it!
i was wondering if anyone else who may know of lovecrafts works has seen the same similarities as me; the tonsil stone after reading whisperer in darkness i think is clearly the black stone that they find in this story, but i havent seen anyone else make the comparison
ive also seen people complain about the lack of explanation of what the old ones are and where they come from, but thats kind of the point; because you cant know, because you wouldnt understand or if you did you would undoubtedly lose your sanity.
Anyway just thought id say if anyone realllllly enjoyed bloodborne like i did, do yourself a favor and read Lovecraft! you can read all of his works for free online because technically nobody owns it i think.
