    IMO, Dark Souls was a lot better. It seemed liked the more engaging and polished game.

    Dark Souls, but that's simply because it was my first time playing a souls game, they are both great but yeah, Dark has come on a bit in improving the combat and opening the world up.

    though in my opinion your character looked better on demons, dark souls they all look less.. well made.

    Have to say still though that Demon's was the innovation, while Dark is just a refinement

    dark souls is more polished but overall demons is better the upgrading system is a lot better iin demons and the world in dark souls is kinda meh, FROM basically just copied and pasted most of the worlds to dark souls. i love both games but demon's is my second fave game ever(the original metal gear on ps1 beign the first, cant beat that story).

    Undecided until I beat the rest of dark souls but I liked demons souls nexus system more, but like that they put more weapons and and armors in dark souls. My only complaint in demons souls was I didn't feel like there were enough cool looking weapons and I'm big on visuals.

    In my opinion Demon's Souls was better for PVP, Dark Souls is all around better for PVE. I like how they made more weapon types that could be upgraded to ANYTHING, but I think there's too many "overpowered" spells, rings, ect. in Dark at least for PVP anyways.

    I'm not too sure, that's one I'll think about for a long time. But all together I think Demon's is more my favourite.

    And RANT, I totally agree on MGS1 it is one of my favourite videogames of all time as well.

    Dark Souls got Blighttown
    Demon's Souls got Tower of Latria AND Valley of Defilement...

    That makes Demon's Souls worse. Demon's Souls dont have any slowdowns like Dark Souls tho...

    Seriously now, when you play on Boletaria Palace for the first time it's fcking epic, I felt like entering Hyrule Field, that medieval environment made me speechless.

    I wouldnt mind if the whole game took place in Boletaria

    I love both games. Right now I'm playing Dark Souls and am enjoying it like no other game

    that song at the end still makes me nostalgic about it every time i heaer after all these years, best story and bosses ever, ninja and psycho mantis are classics but gettingm back on topic, demon's world feels more inspired and big, when i got to anor londo it looked really cool bu then i beat the level and i gotta say its most plain looking thing ive seen, it was boring as hell it felt like a chore to do execpt for the boss fight O & S were fun to fight.

    Being a demons vet id have to say Demons was better, Dark did try to polish the innovative Demons but it seems things are now worse off, Dark feels more of a PVE type game than pvp imho, I mean they got more weapons, more armor, more upgrade paths and areas but in the end it didnt feels as inspiring as Demons, Demons had a smaller world with less weapons yes but everything felt worth it.

    Dark didnt give me that "wow" feeling Demons did, i swaer this isnt FF7 syndrome, just Dark feels like ive seen it before somewhere else.

    Dark souls feels more focused on visuals and quantity and walking around where as Demons focued more on combat.

    Though i must say Darks netcode is so much better.

    I love both games. With that said in my opinion each has its pro's and con's. Get ready for a rant silly




    Demons souls. It was (and still is) a revolutionary game. It brought concepts that had been long lost in games or never even thought of. The online system was incredibly revolutionary and gave the game endless replay value. The game was driving and engaging. When I was stuck somewhere in the game my real life was effected by it. I felt down, hopeless and depressed (not sure if that's healthy or not). The game moved me in a way I never thought a game could. In fact since I played demon's souls I've never been able to play other games the same again. With that said the game had its drawbacks. The graphics were good but left something wanted. The combat was tight but at times much to tedious to be enjoyable. You could literally screw yourself over in the game and have to re roll your character. The pvp was (for me and many will argue against this but please hold it for another topic because I have no intent to argue here) un-playable. There were more upgrades for weapons but the system was confusing and there were much fewer weapons. Armor was completely for show. There was no point to wearing heavy armor especially for PvP.

    Dark souls, basically a technical renovation of demons souls. The graphics and playablility got upgraded. Weapons and armor were added. Poise made heavy armor viable. Upgrades were simplified. Estus was added to remove the need to farm for healing items. The game fell however. The bosses SUCKED. The levels were often harder than the bosses themselves. Boss weapons (all what 10 of them?) are really quite useless compared to other weapons upgraded.



    Now that that's been said, I like dark souls better. The gameplay and graphics are much better and the pvp is quite a bit better than it was in demons souls. I am a "demons souls vet". What it comes down to is both games had their pro's and con's and dark souls comes out with a few more pro's than demons.

    ErrJon read that and it's interesting because I've done 10 of Demon's bosses.. yeah i still got a way to go but all 10 of them i breezed either first time or second time..

    I think to be honest your ability to destroy the Dark bosses was because you played demons, just like im destroying demon's because I've played dark first..

    i think this is very true. i played demons souls before dark souls so i had a hard time understanding why some people have a difficult time against some bosses, like the gaping dragon. now in demons i died about 20 time against the armor spider for example

    on topic i like dark souls more than demons because of better pvp, open word(i hated the nexus and that the worlds weren't connected), the hidden areas, better graphics, more weapons and armor, better storyline and the pendant mystery

    It could be because I played Demon's before Dark, but when I go back and play Demon's some of the bosses still give me trouble. The flamelurker ALWAYS kicks my *** hahaha. And don't even get me started on the maneater. Plus i think blightown was much easier than tower of latria or the valley of defilement.

    Because it WAS easier, Blight town was a step ladder stage with thin paths, it was nowhere near as infuriating as the Valley of Defilement, or the Tower.

    the Tower you reallly couldnt see where you were going until it was too late. And walking through an entire stage of poison, slowly, no running, cursing while these bugs and other weird jelly fish thingd keep coming closer. and then theres VoDs last boss. Plague water, Plague babies, and MR Hammer.

    dark souls Blight town was just not a problem, almost a forgiving version on VOD or the ToL.

    yes and no. i was better at demons and i'm still figuring out my playstyle for the pvp in dark. i cant say for sure for a while yet but i miss the prevolance of the offensive roll in demons. now imo rolling is for clubs katanas backstabs and dodging.

    the maneater was pathetically easy.. and flamelurker i got first time..

    Am i missing something here? silly

    but not that iv been through valley and such yeah i think so, the levels i find are more difficult than the dark souls ones. No poise is a main factor i find. Another is the setup of the levels is more roundabout. However i find the bosses are actually easier.

    I don't remember the maneater but I do remember the flamelurker, he was chump change for the most part.

    Is ManEater the big guy with the birds nest or something on his head? If it was you could just snipe him up top and back away as he attacked, that was a joke.

    no to be correct maneaters. They are the gargoyles of Demon's basically, you fight em on a bridge in 3-2

    i enjoyed demon's souls better personally

    of course dark souls has a lot of new features

    however nothing can surpass the feeling i got the first time i ever played demon's souls

    and entered the inevitable fate of dying,over and over again in that game

    on dark souls i was just like "back in the *dies* death cycle!"
