I was wondering if Demon's Souls is a tad bit easier than Dark Souls.

Personally, and I know many people agree with me on this one, I think it's more difficult.

Demon's Souls is a fair bit more difficult then Dark Souls, however, it's easier to exploit enemy and boss AI, and you can get top end weapons faster in Demon's Souls.

If you know the game inside and out, know how to build a character and build weapon's that play to that character's abilitys, You can blaze through Demon's Souls fairly quickly.

I didnt find Demon's Souls to be all that hard. It does have its tougher moments though.

I find their difficulty to be pretty similar.

However, with Demon's Souls I had to fight through the learning curve. With Dark Souls it had its own specific learning curve, but the gameplay elements are very close to Demon's Souls. For example, since I learned how to parry effectively in Demon's Souls (after multiple deaths), it was a pretty easy transition into Dark Souls and so on.

it harder for me to say because ive beaten both a few times so that im pretty far removed from the jarring beginnings. still, i think demon's souls is a bit easier. its hub world orients the player more, the counter timing is more forgiving, and you can stock up on more healing items.

I found demon souls a lot easier than dark souls (Which i'm playing through now.) Don't get me wrong, some bosses were damn hard but like all life's problems, they can be solved with a bow and a lot of arrows.

Demon's Souls was harder for me cos I was never really knew what to expect and had to learn from my mistakes.. With Dark Souls, I already knew where I was headed and what was in store... After spending 80+ hours on Demon's Souls, I found Dark Souls lot more easier... According to me the games are equally challenging... And which ever game you play first, you would find that more difficult...

I thought Dark Souls was many, many times more difficult than Demon's Souls.

I dont think so. But, since played both games, I kinda was already sorta Soulified already, familiar with the controls and such and expecting the worse. So who knows. I think Dark Souls is easier. I hven't had too much trouble with it.
