I like Demon's Souls a lot lot more than Dark Souls. This isn't to say Dark Souls isn't a great game, it truly is, but Demon's Souls just has that classic quality to it.

Both games are great but I enjoyed Dark Souls more.

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.


Having dumped 100's of hours into each title, Demon's Souls is the shorter game by a wide margin(and without counting the DLC areas of Dark Souls). That isn't necessarily a bad thing, as the ambition of Dark Souls created a number of cracks around the edges, so to speak. The levels in Demon's Souls are more deliberate in their layouts and physical space. Dark Souls loses a bit of charm compared to the world in Demon's Souls. None of this is meant to imply that Dark Souls is bad by any means. It's just a trade off for having a larger game with lots of extra content.


I like the level design in Dark Souls. That it feels naturally unforgiving and can be an obstacle on its own makes the world more believable. I think the trade-off is that Demon's Souls has an artistically moody air, and Dark Souls' lore feels richer, like a dark fantasy novel.

Well I ended up going with Demon's Souls. Sort of lucked out too, cause the GS employee gave me a new Max Payne 3 strategy guide free, which was pleasantly ironic since I just got that game last week and started it haha.

Anyways, wish me luck!
