Top 3 Games in Dark Souls series

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Top 3 Games in Dark Souls series

Dark Souls technically has 3 games. Here though I'll consider the spiritual inspiration Demon's Souls and a spiritual soulmate Bloodborne as games in the series. Pick your favourites and tell us why you like them.

My picks:

1. Demon's Souls - An atmosphere that pulled me in right from the start, has an ethereal feeling to it. The areas in Demon's Souls have a distinct sense of place and it has the best lore in the series.

2. Dark Souls - The open world in Dark Souls is mesmerising. Everytime you open a shortcut and go "Ahhh" is a moment to behold. Due to its design it allows different approach on multiple playthroughs and it has the best area in the series, Painted World of Ariamis.

3. Dark Souls 3: The Fire Fades Edition - Dark Souls 3 with the DLC has the best boss fights in the series and the aesthetic of the game is something to behold. The bosses are all good and there are plenty of them.

1. Demon's Souls - Just loved the level design, combat. First and the best, still. Got the Platinum on this one.

2. Dark Souls 1 - Fixed a few issues from Demon's Souls, but didn't like the non-hub world layout as much.

3. Bloodborne - Nice mix of fast paced combat and different environment settings. Loved the final boss, too.

You might just want to do a best out of the souls-like genre to increase the pool to choose from. I liked Demons' Souls, Dark Souls, Nioh and Bloodborne.



All these threads of yours feel really forced. Maybe if you posted your actual picks in the OP, along with some detailed reasoning for them, you'd be creating real discussion, but you're not. It's not an accident that you're asking this question about like every popular series you can think of, and yet you're getting almost no replies. The way you're doing it comes across as thread spamming, and people aren't into it.

Just curious about what people here like. If you guys want my picks and reasoning, I'll gladly do it :)

Bloodborne

At first Bloodborne was my second favorite but after a long time of thinking and replaying all the souls game I've got to put bloodborne on top, the fast paced gameplay, world design, lore, story are just so top notch.


Demons Souls (as a very very close second)

Originally my favorite, its the one that started it all, I played it when It launched but aside from nostalgia, its got some of the more inventive bosses, great levels, and I love the lore and story. The characters are probably my most favorite in the series. Also I'm one of the few people who actually really enjoys the world and character tendency mechanic 

Dark Souls 1

For dark souls specicifically, I rank 1 better than 2 or 3 mainly because I have the least amounts of complaints for Dark souls 1 over the other 2 games. But still all the games I would give around a 9 out of 10 ( Dark souls 2 I'd give an 8.5)

My 3 favorite games are Dark Souls 1, 2 and 3, basically in that order. Although they are all pretty close in quality IMO, which means they are all extremely fun to play. Demon's Souls was also great when I first played it, but when I replayed it later it felt dated. I feel all of the Dark Souls games just have much better environments than Demon's Souls. Bloodborne is not a good game IMO, and it nearly killed my desire to play any Souls game ever again. Haven't tried Nioh yet, I guess I should look into it.

People aren't into spamming?

It's ALL about spamming!



Top 3 Dark Souls games?

Dark Souls
Dark Souls 2
Dark Souls 3

I think Bloodborne is better than all three and Demon Souls is better than Dark Souls 2, but those are not Dark Souls games. =P
