Bloodborne has the most difficult starting area of any game From Software's ever made — and if you've played a game from the Souls series, you know how difficult we're talking. Until you make it to the game's first boss, you won't be able to level up, and you won't find much in the way of new gear, which makes your starting decisions in the game awfully important.
