Bloodborne and HP Lovecraft by Super Bunnyhop.

Alex, you were right about The Dunwich Horror and The Shadow Over Innsmouth - Bloodborne reeks of their influence - and YouTuber Super Bunnyhop has taken it a step further, discussing how Bloodborne both honors Lovecraft's recurring themes and subverts them through its mechanics, and its rendering of a doomed society.
