Finally time I play them...Demons Souls or Dark Souls?

I never played Demons, and I only played a SMALL by of Dark Souls back on 360 (got up to the big monster on the castle wall that you can jump down onto and stab his neck or something like that?)


I have a $10 BBY RZ cert, so I didn't know if I should use that on Dark Souls, or just go to Gamestop and get Demons for $15 used.

Which is the better overall experience?

Okay this what you do, get Dark Souls, buy the DLC for it since it is cheap right now and play through that. Then go to Demon's Souls. They are both good games. but the DLC for Dark Souls is on sale so you should jump on it.

I prefer Demon's. Just like the feel of it better.

Dark Souls is empty and boring Demon's Souls is better overall.

You should definitely play Demons first. IMO Dark is a better games playing it first would be a mistake.

Yea, I heard Demons had more "life" to it, so to speak.

And that it gave a better sense of the game, even though Dark souls had better updated combat, etc.

Dark Souls is the better game and a little more accessible, though the fanboys will tell you to get the inferior Demons Souls.

Yep.
The atmosphere, lore and characters in Demon's are heads above Dark.

Demons is the better EXPERIENCE while Dark is the better GAME. Demons souls just feels more polished with its mechanics and world while Dark has a LOT more to it.

Dark has more weapons/armor but Demon's is the longer game.
