Dark Souls wins all categories for me. Best game ever made imo.

The thing about Demon's Souls is not distance between bonfires, is that it only gives you one after you beat both the entire sections plus the boss in one go, if you fail anywhere you don't progress at all.

That's not true. You can open shortcuts.

And still start in the very same spot if you die anywhere before killing the boss.

I'm going to mention this now since some people have brought it up. While a neat idea in concept, and maybe worth exploring it again with a better fleshed design, World / Character Tendency is absolutely trash in Demon's Souls. If you played online, you were at the mercy of the average Tendency of all the players; if you played offline, good luck figuring out what changes what. Enjoy all the blocked events/loot/characters due to navigation through a neutral/not pure tendency. Seriously, I hated that. It's a mechanic that I haven't missed at all in any of the other games.

I'm not sure if it has been said, but the whole "you gotta die" prologue was also great and probably the best intro in all Souls, even if it is shitty that instead of an impossible battle they just throw you into a "lol killed" cutscene at the end.

Seems like someone still feels that Dragon's God punch, doesn't it?

It's even worse knowing that you're taken out by the wussiest of bosses in that game, not counting the final one.

Said the guy that can't even fight it unless its completely chained down and still takes heavy damage because is just near to its breath.

Same guy that makes the Old One go away. Dragon God has no argument to stand on.

The Old One doesn't fight, it's a pussy.

Dragon God is the most powerful creature in the game, probably in the entire series. There is a reason you don't fight him directly and even his breath can kill you. He makes Midir look tame.

That's not how I see it. Dragon God gets literally taken down by two ballistas that anyone could have fired (but the soldiers were too late). You simply zig-zag until pressing two buttons, and that gets the God to its knees, waiting for you to come closer and finish the job. He's like Seath; maybe impressive lore-wise, but an actual pansy when fought.

Dragon God highlights one of my biggest issues with Demon's Souls. It features some of the easiest bosses in the franchise, some as disappointing as part of the Arch Demons themselves.
