It feels as though I died about as many times in Dark Souls as Demon's Souls. However, I was still learning how the system worked and how to build a character in Demon's Souls, while I started Dark Souls already knowing what to expect and having a strong build to carry over.

I'm gonna say that in my experience. Dark Souls was harder in an absolute sense.

The harder game is the one you play first. That's it. Anyone saying otherwise is plain wrong.


But from a neutral standpoint, Dark Souls is harder.

For a long while I was convinced Demon's is harder, since it was the first one I played. Butt, I came back to it after a few months of Dark Souls, and I beat it in 2 days with only 2-3 unintentional deaths, and got every secret weapon. All done solo.

BTW...Demon's Souls is availableon PSN right now too and they are having a PWWT event for 2 weeks so it will be the easiest it is ever gonna be right now.

So...anyone that wanted to get all the PWWT events that never did better hoop on Demon's right now as well. >_>


NOOOOO :( i only needed to do the PBWT events on my dex guy :/ Can i still enter PBWT with this event?

I think it depends on your playstyle. I find DeS more difficult because my aggressive melee style benefits tremendously from the poise only available in Dark Souls. Furthermore, the hardest Black Phantoms (also King Doran) in DeS are WAY tougher than anything in Dark Souls. Considering these facts, it's actually pretty obvious that DeS has harder (pure black) challenges.

While the event is running you would have to switch to offline mode before shifting a world's tendency to pure black.

What makes the unique named Black Phantoms hard? Like practically all the enemies in Des, they have really limited movesets that make them easy as hell to counter.
Fighting games man, it's like, damn that's good.

Demon's Souls forces you to wade through more enemies; however, the bosses are easier and there are a lot of ways to become overpowered.

Nearly limitless healing items, faith weapons, better spell resource. Demon's Souls is extremely easier.

Hell, you can make at least two fall to their death.

Maybe even three.

And stuck lock works great with the BP in the prison.

This and with a bow you could wipe the floor with most bosses quite safely.

Really depended on how you played the game and if you wanted to do the world tendencies.
