Dark Souls, or Demon's Souls?

#1Ticking_DeathPosted 1/11/2013 5:08:54 AM
My Xbox Live Gold subscription is running out in the next few days, and I have no intention of (likely ever) renewing it; however, I do enjoy playing Dark Souls online whenever I can find a lull in the legion of hackers.

Seeing as I'm forfeiting online play on 360, should I buy Demon's Souls for PS3, or pick up another copy of Dark Souls?

Both are 20$ new, so price isn't the issue. I've not played Demon's Souls, but I've also not put enough time into Dark Souls to shelve it yet. Since I don't have enough money in my gaming budget to get both games right now, the other will have to wait quite a while.

I'd say get Demon's Souls since it would all be new for you.
I also preferred the atmosphere/music in Demon's.
Just note that it isn't as open as Dark Souls.
Valkyria Chronicles is the best RPG this gen!

I have more fun with Demon's Souls. I would say get Demon's Souls now and then get Dark Souls when the Demon's Souls server goes down.

I'm not sure which game is more active on PSN since I own "Dark" for 360, but you already played that one. I have Demon's Souls as well and its a great game (haven't played online in a long while)....shouldn't be missed, so my vote is for it.

Hmm, let me check the records...
I once worked with a guy for three years and never learned his name. Best friend I ever had. We still never talk sometimes.

Demon's Souls just got a PSN release so there should be a bit of an influx of players online. I'd say get demon's because of that and because it's new to you.
Expect less and you'll be more satisfied

Demon's is the overall better game.

Neither, get Skyrim.
