Best pvp, best builds, most replayability with soul vessals, and a diffrent playthrough in NG+, i dont find that DS3 came anywhere close to the amount of hours played i got from DS2
Of course dark souls is dead after from soft has shown they want to take the series in a more casual fast paced action approach with DS3, but whenever i remember DS its DS2 and the 500+ hours of NG+++ and pvp i got out of it
some of the best looking areas, and love the interactivity with the torches.
just the bloody damn gank squads ruin it for me, sotfs went way overboard with a lot of it and it just kind of ruins the experience for me. so perhaps vanilla ds2 is worthy but sotfs god no
DS2 had a lot of problems regarding gank squads of not-so-weak enemies, and some other ganks with really annoying ones (mummies ftw). There wasn't really a weak enemy swarm like DS1, except for the Forest of Fallen Giants, Grave of Saints and The Gutter IIRC. Most of the time it's just too overwhelming.
But it wasn't THAT bad. At least before SotFS. Scholar just added even more gank squads, not really necessary in anyway and just plain annoying. See Iron Keep ffs.
