Play both, they're both great.
People will yell about how bad they think ds2 but they're just the vocal minority.
Nice bait thread though. might make it to 500 replies again like the last one.
mfw I wasn't even trying to b8 and have legit never played a Souls game
Most people that played ds2 liked it. Majority.
Well you did a good job and are probably going to get a lot of replies either way.
You'd be fine just playing DaS1. If you want more, get Scholar and ignore vanilla DaS2 completely. Unless you're big into pvp, DaS1 is a vastly superior game. But SotFS is still a good game.
Definitely get DaS 1, it's a fucking awesome game. If you enjoy it, you might as well get DaS 2 as well, but personally I didn't think much of it. I'd sooner recommend just playing 1 again.
Also, make sure you play it without using any guides and without summoning at any point. It's much more fulfilling that way.
if you were born in the 80s play ds1, if you were born in the mid to late 90s, kill yourself.
DaS is a better, more complete package with an amazing gameworld.
DaS2 isnt as well put together, but it's better than 1 mechanically.
They're both good games, if you discount base DaS2 and only judge it on SotFS.
Theyre both most definitely worth a play-through.
