That's funny,to me BloodBorne is the only game of the bunch with a "good" ending,I havent played the DLC so I might be lacking context but to me the trancendence ending is the entire point of the game,yeah the submission one saves your character from the nightmare but Gherman and all the others are still trapped there the cicle is doomed to continue, however by getting trancendence you achieve what every character in the game has tried to for generations.Stanshall wrote: The only thing it really lacks for me is hope, or redemption. It's utterly devastating, and deliberately so. When I finally finally uninstalled it, I got the 'submission' ending, saw my hunter wake up in the light of dawn, closed the game and deleted it. It was the only way to escape the curse. I know that sounds melodramatic but it was actually a relief to do that, especially after spending so long in the Chalices. The nightmare was over.
All organizations in Yharnam and before have tried this:Byrgenworth,the school of mensis,the healing church and even the Hunters all were striving towards it and all were falling short by either going insane or turning into beasts,however by following in their footsteps and reading their clues and legacy you can succeed where others failed. Through you the sacrifice of countless generations is no longer in vain,you can not only end the nightmare but achieve the higher plane of existence and evolution all were looking for,you are the star child at the end of 2001
Compare it to the other games: In Demon's Souls you can either spend eternity as monumental keeping the fabric of reality forever until someone wake the demons again or help the demons in extingishing all life. In Dark souls 1&3 you can either serve a kindling to the fire or let it fade and once again end all life as we know it. In DS2 you get to be king but hey the Herald makes it clear that you're just gonna end up like Vendrick and all the others anyway. BloodBorne is the only one that not only allows you to end threat that engulfs the world but allows you to trancend it.
