Probably Dark Souls 3 however I haven’t played Sekiro, Nioh, Nioh 2, or Bloodborne yet. I have seen a lot of gameplay of Bloodborne and that one looks the most intriguing to me.

I was wondering if DS3 is good since it's on sale on the PSN for 12$. Though I haven't played Boodborne. Which is better?

Most everyone naming its favorite souls game will be their first Souls experience. Demon's is my first and also my fav. Bloodborne close second.

You should play one and unrek yourself. Wasn't Remnant inspired by DS? It's all you man!!

I'm no Dark Souls expert, but I did play both. Bloodborne is fast paced with an emphasis on aggressive combat. Bloodborne has a gothic/lovecraftian setting and has werewolves = win.

I wouldn't really consider Nioh a souls game, but since it's on the list, I have to vote for it.

@DEVILinIRON: for DS, get the DS trilogy physical edition. DS remastered, DS 2: SoFS and DS3 with all dlc is very worth it. Dunno if its available on other platform but its on PS4 and you get a steelcase as well so its very worth it to buy physical.

Bloodborne is perfection get that regardless.

Dark Souls 3 and Bloodborne are the upper tier in terms of mechanics and design.

Dark Souls 2 is the GOAT. It broadened the combat system exponentially by introducing some amazing mechanics and a wider weapon set. It made for some truly wild PvP. Playing solo, everything I enjoyed from previous games is still there, but it's on a much bigger scale than the other Souls titles. It's my favorite, and this is coming from someone who loves all of them.

I've only ever played Dark Souls and didn't even complete it. Thinking of doing a fresh playthrough and actually finish it this time. I will definitely get Bloodborne if it ever comes to PC.

Monster hunter. There, I said it :P.

I never got on with souls games. love the lore, love the story telling, love the atmosphere, love the exploring......don't like the combat.

I have no interest in "Gitting gud" either. i played demon souls and DS2 and both just proved to be a lesson in frustration. It would just boil down to grinding it out and i have no interest in it. I can see the appeal....just not for me.

Dark Souls 3, though I haven't played Demon's souls or Nioh 2 on that list. I thought it did a good job of mixing the flexible combat options of DS with the aggressive enemies of Bloodborne.

I'd say DS3>DS1>BB>Nioh>Lords of the Fallen> Sekiro > DS2

would be my ranking of the ones i've played

Demon's Souls was my 1st experience with this kind of game. I played the Dark Souls games and Bloodborne, which never gave me as good of an experience as the 1st.

I appreciate you lumping all these games into the Souls game category. As it should be with proper reverence to the works that created the spark.

It's always a toss up between Dark Souls and Demon's Souls for me.

Bloodborne is fantastic as well.

Another game I really enjoyed was The Surge 2. Great level design and a fun way to upgrade your gear and weapons.

Demon's, Dark Souls 2, Bloodborne in that order.

Nothing will ever replicate the experience of playing Demon's Souls for the first time. They came close with bloodborne, but it came short.

I don't count Nioh 1 and 2, but if you're including those, they win based upon gameplay alone.

It's hard to say. I love them all(From Software games, that is). In terms of sheer surrealism, and an overall eerie experience, DS1 wins out with me. But Demon's was pretty good in that department, too. Mechanically speaking, BB and DS3 are probably the best, though those games have much more going for them than just mechanics. If we're talking which is best with regard to making me want to chuck my controller through a window, DS2 is it. Those freaking twin tigers out in the snow, dude. I've never been so pissed at a game in my life. **shivers**

Maybe DS1. Surrealism and atmosphere go a long way with me, and DS1 deals that in spades. Such a great game. Such a great series overall.

Oh, and, wimpy gamers need not apply. This thread isn't for you. Tee-hee. ;)

Haven't played Nioh 2 since I'm waiting for a PC version, so I went with Nioh.

Ranking them based on favoritism

Demon's Souls>Dark Souls>Blood Borne>Dark Souls 3>Sekiro>Dark Souls 2

Ranking them based on quality of the game overall

Bloodborne>Dark Souls>Dark Souls 3>Demon's Souls>Dark Souls 2>Sekiro, I think. Idk.

Nioh is better than all of them. I expect Nioh 2 to be even better. Lords of the Fallen is straight bad, nothing reedming about that game or that other series they made The Surge.

It's a bit weird for me. I think DS1 is the best game of the bunch, but I enjoyed DS3 more. So vote goes to DS3.

Sekiro is not far behind. Haven't played Bloodborne enough to have a legit opinion about it.

That's a very good synopsis. People think I am crazy when I say I like DS3 better than Bloodborne. But I like the options and variety of locales. I still love Bloodborne, but DS3 really resonates with me.

Wasn't DS3 influenced by Bloodborne?

Code Vein. To me, things genuinely feel like a challenge that keeps you on your toes while Dark Souls from my experience just feels like it's hard for the sake of being hard. Also, the AI companion does HUGE favours in getting people into the genre where they would otherwise feel too intimidated to even play a soulslike game.
