Should I buy Dark Souls or Sleeping Dogs?

#1NATDude101Posted 1/31/2014 3:45:07 PM
I've still got some Amazon Credit that expires today. It gives me $5 off a select PC download. I've narrowed it down to Dark Souls ($2.50) and Sleeping Dogs ($3). I know Dark Souls is usually $7.50 on amazon or steam and it's a good price, but I'm still wondering if either of these games would be better for PS3 (My laptop isn't as powerful as a PS3).

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Do you rage quit at difficult sections of games? Sleeping Dogs
Do you like a challenge that doesn't hold your hand? Dark Souls

Sleeping Dogs is a very good action game, but Dark Souls is... well, Dark Souls. It's got a unique atmosphere and some mechanics I've never seen anywhere else. So, it definitely wins the originality contest.

On the other hand, they're not really comparable. One is a John Woo movie in game form and the other is a slow RPG with weighty combat and lots of style.

I enjoyed SD quite a bit and only actually played about 30 minutes of DS. I ended up finding DS 'clunky' for the PC and I found the difficulty to get it to run properly outweighed the fun or appeal the game had for me.

They are very different games, however.

Sleeping dogs is a gta clone that one ups gta, so great game.

Dark souls is a must buy.

Both

Sleeping dogs has enough narrative to drive me through the game.

Dark souls has a challenge that kept me coming back, until I stopped.

I finished Sleeping Dogs, I quit Dark Souls.

(my videocard broke before I could finish DS, but I never went back)
