I had a bit of a rough start with Bloodborne. I bought it about 2 years ago, struggled through to Bloodstarved Beast, hit a brick wall, decided I wasn't enjoying it and put the game down. I rarely give up on games, so I felt a bit bad at dropping it, but I play games for escapism and Bloodborne was just too stressful. Then, recently I decided to have another crack and finally beat BSB. That feeling of euphoria after beating it was unbelievable and that's when it started to click.
Was it plain sailing from then onwards? No! I struggled with The Shadow of Yharnam, Vicar Amelia, Martyr Logarius and Ebrietus, but I felt a change of attitude where, although they were tough, it felt like it was just a matter of time and gitting gudder before I beat them. I'm yet to play the DLC and I'm tempted to pick up Dark Souls 3, but thus far Bloodborne is perhaps my game of this generation.
