This game is genuinely perfect. So much to explore I'm about 50% through the main game and just can't get enough of it.

So well made and presence each enemy has is so well done. On new game plus I might go full pyromancer.

I've been replaying this after the Remaster, and while I enjoy it. I dislike the fact it's largely one linear journey (sometimes with side branches)

The interconnected world of DS1 (at least the first half) was much stronger.

Completed the remaster and have sunk in 35 hours into Dark Souls 2 SOTFS on the PS4 Pro. I must say that I love the more responsive, faster controls on the sequel. I completed it a few years back on the PS3 and was quite critical of it, however appreciate it a lot more now and feel that it has a lot more depth than the original even though some of the bosses are a bit boring/ repetitive.

I bought DS3 digitally as £11.99 is a steal and will replay that one day soon after God of War and Yakuza 6.

I do think that we need a break from the franchise for a few years and perhaps a new twist such as a different setting, however I would absolutely love a Demon's Souls remake on the PS4 Pro and hear Bluepoint are hard at work on it. This also reminds me that I have the Shadow of the Colossus remake still shrinkwrapped and ready to play! The PS4 really has all the games.

I'll be absolutely shocked if a Demon's Souls remake isn't announced and released by the end of next year. I think it's basically the last big Sony game from that era that hasn't been remastered.

Finished my re-run of this after DS1 Remastered.

Still very conflicted about it. The mechanics are great, but the mostly linear setting is terrible and the lore isn't as good. (Each area in it's own is pretty good, but the world is a corridor).

The DLC though (first time) god what a chore. Bosses have insane amounts of health - even fully geared/leveled up. Everything just takes so long.

I'd probably rate it higher than the first game tbh. Thought the lore was great and the increased linearity didn't really bother me since each particular area still had little shortcuts and stuff.

The lore was interesting no doubt - far more so than 2 - but DS1 is special :)

The world in one is so interlinked - you can "sequence break" a lot of later play throughs. Don't get the same from DS3 - pretty much always one route forward and cut off.

I agree with DS3> DS1. It's a better game overall.
