2 isn't great but compared to stuff like Lords of the Fallen it's practically flawless

I thought the characters and themes were well done, but the gameplay sucks loving rear end to me. but again, some people like it, so you might as well try it out if it's cheap

DS2 is fine, it's the worst Souls game but it's still good and worth playing at least once imo

It's apparently the best for PVP but I was never into that for Souls games so I dunno.

It did have my fave pvp covenants but Bloodborne is probably the most fun pvp I've done

bellbro pvp was dope as hell. ssome of the mechanics were really good (powerstancing was the poo poo) but i hated th level design and 80% of the enemies in the game are dudes in armor. its worth doing one run just for the dlc though, brume tower in particular is fuckin great

OH yeah totally. I played DeSo, DaSo, and DaSo II back to back within like a month of time a few summers ago and get the areas muddled in my head, so I didn't know that was DS2. It's a drat good game

despite being lacking in some areas, DS2 had one of my favorite character builds i'd ever done: powerstanced rapiers with the leo ring, where he would barrel through combat trying to get as much counter damage as possible off of attacking enemies

Using a bigass hammer to smash everything in 2-3 hits was very satisfying. I feel like it was way easier to actually spec your character in that game since the stats were clearly identified and labeled. Fast roll heavy armor FTW

The ds2 dlc was so good... I liked 3s but it didn't compare. Iron King might be my favourite area in the series

2 has the most build variety plus it's pretty easy to respec so you can make tweaks down the line. Also Bonfire Ascetics let you bump up the difficulty in certain areas and refight bosses.

So I've heard Dark Souls 2 kind of sucks compared to 1 and 3, but is it still worth playing?

scholar of the first sin was okay. there are some spectacularly bad ideas tho, the biggest one being filling some areas with 50 idential enemies that bumrush you at the second you enter. a majority of the bosses are also giant humanoids that do a 3-4 hit combo you dodge and then whiff punish.

The only bad part of DS2 is the durability and that almost every enemy wears armor so theyre really weak to crush so using a mace puts the whole game on easy mode. Powerstancing owns and the weapons variety is great too. A hypothetical new souls game which has both powerstancing and weapon arts would be incredible.

i wish i liked the end-game and DLC more in DS3. i still haven't beaten freide or started the second DLC because i sort of just stopped caring. might buy the PC version and a controller on payday, though, and play that this weekend.

yeah I think 2 gets around it bc it's more open and you can skip around the bad parts if you know what you're doing but in 3 you have to follow the super linear path

Dark Souls 3 is so freaking good. I'm playing through it for the 3rd time and doing more covenant stuff, the Blue Sentinels covenant is much more active than it was when I first played the game and its really fun.

I enjoyed ds2/3 but I think Bloodborne proves they shouldn't really ever do direct sequels and just make more new stuff all the time

also dark souls 2 had a true ng+ with new enemies and gear all over the place and I was really pissed that wasnt in 3

I still have fond memories of the PS3 hacker who invaded me in Demons Souls 1-3 with infinite health and a version of stormbringer that worked outside of the boss arena and just batted me around for 20 minutes not doing any damage and emoting
