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.

but if you must pick... Dark Souls is the better game IMO.

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.

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)
