Dark Souls 1 is my favourite game of all time but moving forward I have to go with the red pill.
Bro I'm right in the middle dark souls 1 is my favorite game tied with dark souls 3
I'm exactly like you
Same, but demon souls and DS2 just don't compare against bloodborne and sekiro
Elden ring has horseback combat is that red enough
Chop up both pills and snort them. lol
Big dark souls
For the people who just say that Elden Ring is big dark souls, that alone makes me wanna but it
Horse But? Whaaat?
Aw man I really wish there was another Happy Souls video. :(

Red pill all day!
Like when you finally really understand sekiro gameplay and flow of combat, the game becomes pure bliss!
That’s exactly why I went Red. Sekiro is hands down my favorite FromSoft game so far. I loved every second of it
Bloodbourne is right up there for me as well. Once you get the pistol counter timed right, its a thing of beauty
I have so much trouble with Slow Souls. It is in my nature to be darting around like a madman.
It’s not even close!
Word for word what I was going to say.
What if I took both?
Purple pill: everything on NG+ 7
Red pill please…
Based and redpilled
I beat bloodborne once on ps4. Am playing sekiro now on series x. I don’t think I would like the slow ones but idk may try them sometime. My next from game will probably be elden ring.
I'd strongly suggest playing Dark Souls 3 before Elden Ring to get warmed up to the Souls games. Bloodborne is a great start, but Ring appears to be a bit more like Souls. Besides, it's such an amazing game!
My first was Bloodborne now I’m on Dark Souls 3 before Elden Ring. Dark Souls 3 is so much more difficult and complex, but I love it. So long as I can make it through the next tough section I’ve encountered, lol.
Trust me, you’ll adapt to Dark Souls. It was a lot harder for me too at first, as my first From game was also Bloodborne. What tough section are you at?
Yeah I feel pretty good about it, but it keeps increasing the difficulty level unexpectedly.
I made it to Profaned Capital and have yet to proceed simply because I knew I had loose ends to tie up in previous areas of the game. I had forgot to fully explore Irithyll of the Boreal Valley as I skipped exploration since initially the difficulty spike was crazy. I focused on finishing off the Demon Ruins then somehow ended up finishing Irithyll Dungeon, which again seemed insane at first.
Now, after killing Pontiff Sulyvahn I proceeded to Anor Londo and encountered the plaza with the sleeping giants and those two Drang Knights who are super difficult! Just that whole area right now seems a significant step up in difficulty after so many other recent steps up in difficulty, haha. This game is insane.
If history tells me anything I’ll overcome it just like the other tough areas I’ve mentioned, but I’ve been questioning myself at the same time, lol.
Ah man, the memories. Your playthough sounds almost identical to my first playthrough. You're in for some great times though. The best portion of the game is still to come (imo), and then you have the amazing DLC's.
However, don't be afraid to take a little break if the difficulty starts getting to you, and you get frustrated and aren't having a good time (not saying that's where you're at, but I definitely got there at one point, especially in Sekiro). Coming back after a break seems to work magic for me.
Enjoy your journey, Ashen One.
Those Drang Knights have multiple chained attacks I haven’t experienced where they can hit up to five or six times in one extended attack depleting all your health.
I haven’t got that pissed at the game since maybe my first attempts at Catacombs of Carthus, or maybe the rooftop of Cathedral of the Deep.
Ds1 aint going nowhere
Blue pill easy
At first I thought it was obviously red pill, but I honestly don't know if I'd be able to give up Dark Souls 1. I'm more likely to replay it, but I still haven't finished Sekiro even though it's probably the best game I've played in a while
I’m so sorry DS, I gotta go red
I love Demon's Souls, but I have to go with red pill
Blue, all day every day
I'm kinda let down that everyone here really wants the fast paced games :( I like both the same and I really don't want fs to abandon the slow pace
Red pill 100%
RED PILL ALL DAY EVERYDAY!
Red pill, no contest.
I know im probably the outlier here but i kinda like the slow methodical gameplay of dark souls 1 and 2, there clanky as shit dont get me wrong but it feels like every movement matters, it just makes every victory all the more rewarding. It feels sick as shit to roll under a attack in dark souls but its just way to easy in dark souls 3 to roll through the attack with iframes that having a shield is almost worse than just rolling through everything
Not sure about that i frames comment. They were there since Demon's Souls.
But yeah, if you liked slower games - Elden Ring seem to have a biiiit slower moveset than DS3 for same weapons. So you might like this balance a bit more.
I think the fair comparison would be dark souls trilogy against the others
I considered doing it that way. Both seemed like logical organisational options to me. If you switched Des and das3, which would you pick?
Probably blue but I’d really miss Sekiro
Des remastered or original?
If original then das3
If remastered then ... Probably still das3 but that might change
Whatever pill has Armored Core.
We all know the besto choice is the red pill
Nah the real choice is 1st person vs 3rd person FromSoft. And gimme that sweet sweet 1st person.
Chad King's Field appreciator
I dont agree with ds1 being slow. Its just u keep ur equipload bellow 25%...
Red pill gameplaywise blue pill lorewise
I feel like such an outcast preferring slow shield combat over dodging like a mongoloid.
Bloodborne and DS3 are my favs, so, I guess red pill.
What's the deal with Elden Ring. Is it looking faster or slower? Haven't really watched much gameplay.
Like ds3, based on the success of ds3 and bloodborne. But it is also going to have more rpg elements a la ds1, so there will probably be a wider pace range, I imagine.
Didn't play the beta
How did DS1 have more rpg elements? Correct me if I’m mistaken, but DS3 has more competent weapons and more overall build diversity than the first game. Getting the endings were more involved as well, and required more than just ‘light the fire’ or ‘walk away’. The only things the first game has that’s better is an interconnected, somewhat nonlinear world and the ability to level up at every bonfire.
DS1 had more balance between builds, thus giving more viable options for character development, thus more RPG elements.
DS3’s combat is Bloodborne-ified to the point where fast builds are objectively better than slower ones.
>DS3’s combat is Bloodborne-ified to the point where fast builds are objectively better than slower ones.
uhh this isn't true at all outside of pvp lol
Well....i mean...twinblades literally melt bosses. Like unironically makes them a joke.
Faster builds aren’t objectively better. The trade off for speed is a higher damage output. I’ve done both, and both are just as viable as one another.
I can’t speak on PvP since I can’t play that, but PvE is far more balanced than DS1. In DS1, all you need is a heavy set of armor with good poise, and a weapon that staggers enemies and you coast through the game. There isn’t really an option like that in ds3. Sure, some of the starting classes start with great weapons and gear that can carry you through the game, but they just make it so you don’t have to look for anything else if you don’t want to. They don’t make the game objectively easier.
Ds1 has the worst balance amount all these games, maybe even worse than DeS. Heavy armor builds are op, light armor is trash, light weapons are trash because of low poise damage, one-handed mode is complete trash, two-handed mode is op, no sharp and heavy infusions from demon's souls so most of the weapon sucks compared to pure str or pure dex weapons.
Ds3 has easily the best balance, also there is no slow builds. If you mean ultra weapon then they have a lot of advantages
The speed is around the same of DS3 but not as fast as BB and nowhere near the blistering speed of Sekiro. The only exception is the horse which seems to run around at mach 5.
Gameplay seems to be extremely similar to DS3 with many of the weapon abilities being lifted Weapon Arts from DS3. However it does seem to be borrowing elements of the previous games too: the sneaking and jumping from Sekiro, powerstancing from DS2, passive poise from DS1 (although not nearly as OP as it was there). I wouldn't be surprised if the Yharnam hotstep or health recovery is attached to some item/ring/spell like the dark wood grain ring from DS1 or the Carthus ring from DS3.
Elden ring is slower than ds3 for some reason and i don't really liked it during cnt. Also rolls are definitely cover less distance(doesn't matter in pvp because rollcatches are way harder than in ds3)
And weapons don't seem to combo 1 hit into another also. Like 1 hit from straight sword won't guarantee the second.
Blue pill 55 criiiiiip
Channel 5 all day
I’m thinking blue. Just about to finish ds2 again. Man is it underrated. Not sure why it gets so much hate.
Because the others are better. It's not about how bad DS2 is - it is about how big is the difference in quality between it and it's peers.
As someone who's only ever played BB and DS3, I guess I'm red pilled
Al those games were awsome , evento DS2 , but i take the red one
Honestly I feel like slow souls should be the red pill, in the context for "red pill vs blue pill"
Demons is fast though. At least in character movement. You zip around way quicker than in DS3.
Red if I’m sober blue if I’m high
Lol sorry but the blue pill has the better games
Sekiro is not a souls game.
Blue. You could honestly stack up every other game against dark souls and make me pick one versus all, and I’d always pick DS1.
Gameplay: Red Pill
Story/Lore: Blue Pill
Gameplay: Red Pill
Story/Lore: Red Pill
Yeah no way.
Lorewise DS3 is very much heavily rooted in DS1 lore. At least DS2 largely moves on from an overeliance on DS1 events. DS2 feels like it takes place further in the future and most of the events of DS1 are barely memories anymore. Then Demon Souls has it's own lore that goes back years and tells it's own story. So you have the best lore in DS1, the best continuation of that lore without being reliant on it, and another game with new lore that stands on it's own.
In the other section you have the most overeliant game in the entire series on the lore of prior games. Then you have Sekiro which is a good story but is probably the most straightforward and linear one that doesn't have a lot of world building or history attached to it in comparison to DS1 or Demon Souls. So really Bloodborne is the only one that really can carry that grouping. That has good lore.
But no DS1 is the standard, DS2 is the best lore continuation in the series to push the story forward and Demon Souls is as solid as most of the other games.
Not denying what you said, but that’s just shows how damn good BB is when the single games lore trumps all the others.
Idk if Bloodborne trumps all the others. It's different lore. But I don't think it's really any controversial opinion that Dark Souls has the deepest lore with the most world building and history. For instance the events of Dark Souls really take place over maybe 50-70 yeats depending on how old you thinking some of the Byrgenworth OG's are. Aside from that there are unestablished older things like the Pthumerian society. But that's really just kinda a side thing. It's also more self contained. The gist of it is about the formation of the Healing Church when Lawrenceleaves Byrgenworth, the fall and split of the Church, and then the Mensis ritual plot.
Dark Souls has lore going back to before humanity existed at all and how several different subsets of races came to be and the natural progression of them that takes place over thousands of years. The lore starts with an era of nothing but dragons, goes into an age of the orginal soul bearers starting their races, the Age of Gwyn, the birth of Chaos, the fall of the daugters of chaos, multiple rises of he Abyss across multiple centuries, Plots against Gwyn and his family, the rise of the curse, wars with dragons, etc. We get a whole history that leads into the curse of the undead and then are quest to decide whether to allow a dying world to continue or fall into new age of darkness.
Don't get me wrong, I love Bloodborne, but lore wise, Dark Souls is deeper. There's a reason they were able to make two sequels to it that both were able to take wildly different approaches to continuing the lore.
Blue for sure, though it’s destroy me not to have Bloodborne
30 fps destroyed me
Red pill all day
90% of people who say red pill didn't even played the other 3 games. I'll go for the blue pill, even if i would like to try Sekiro.
Never played Sekiro so I can’t judge that game but I prefer Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls II over Bloodborne and Dark Souls III, so it would be blue for me.
Ahhhh yes downvoted for having an opinion on Reddit
Red pill baby Elden Ring will also be red
Gimme red all day
I’d take red if it had DS1 instead of Bloodborne
I love Bloodborne and Sekiro but Blue pill all day every day
What about best souls 2?
It's on there, unless you mean SOFTS. Which kinda like des remake you can take it to mean how you want
OD on both pills
*Red Pill also has Elden Ring*
Red pill me. I wouldnt make it 10 seconds in a world without bloodborne.
Can't let all that insight go to waste now, can I?
Demon's souls is one of the fastest
Red pill... I love ds2, but I can't stand how slow ds1 is, so blue pill is out of the question.
...ds2 is slower than ds1, what are you on?
Might be true... but shit like powerstancing makes 2 feel more fluid and faster than 1
I don't agree, but can see where you are coming from. Some animations do appear to be faster even if your movement is still the same, so perhaps you were focusing on attacks specifically, rather than overall game speed.
Gimme both please
Both gang wya???
I will always love demon souls, ds1, and ds2. But I'm chopping up that red pill and snorting it without a second thought.
I only own bloodborne, dark souls 3, and sekiro lol. I supposed I’m red pulled now.
Red all the way, I’m a speedy boy
Is bloodborn down for anyone else?
I'll take the steak.
Slow souls for me
Easiest decision ever. Red pill obviously.
Ds3 is my favorite one but fuck me sekiro is hard as hell I have had the game for a week and still stuck on the big red grabby boss
Stay close to him and try to circle strafe. It should help.
Its that damn grab and then yeets you off the cliff i swear the grab has the worst hitbox i have ever seen i even lead him back and tried to grapple up a tree and he still yoinked me in mid air.
If you simply dodge right or left - it should not be the problem. I tested it a week ago - dodge sideways works fine. If you dodge forwards or backwards - you'll get grabbed. If you are unsure - you can try jumping right or left. But remember - stay close. If you have any distance between you - he will try to grab you in mid air, and that grab is a lot nastier as he can change trajectory if you dodge sideways.
I think that might be my issue is I'm so use to spacing like in dark souls so I space myself and when i go left of right, because I am spaced out it still grabs me if i step to the side because by the time I react he is already in hitbox range. I finally beat him but on a replay I will dread fighting him again.
Say no and get elden ring instead
I’m definitely more in love with Sekiro’s style of combat!
I like fast souls does that make me a noob. I also haven’t finished the DeS remake. I have finished the others though, BB twice. I think that makes me a noob D:
Red pill anyday
I'd go for Blue :)
Speed souls, the engine is faster online and MMo so true. It's called Speed RPG!
*Speed souls, the engine*
*Is faster online and MMo so*
*True. It's called Speed RPG!*

Red pill all day everyday
Red pill, BB best souls
Red pill me
Sadly, red pill is the best of the best
DS3 ain’t even close to fast souls
It is just a bit slower than BB. But it is A LOT faster than previous DS.
Is fast souls the “awakened, see the reality” version??
I wish I could add dark souls 3 to that list, I don't care about the other too. Skeirp is alright, I hate bloodborne
So I get Sekiro
If you ain’t choosing that red pill there’s something up
So u are saying dark souls 3 is fast. I stopped dark souls 1 as it was way to slow and chunky and why would a person roll back and break his spine. So i guess I will try dark souls 3
Fastest is definitely sekiro or bloodborne depending on who you ask
Bloodborne is closer to a souls game so I think you should try that
I started with sekiro and liked its fast gameplay couldnt find another game like that with try bloodborne and darksouls 3. Yea yea back to the difficult games
Just...wear a lighter armor. And you won't be slow or breaking your spine.
Bloodborne could be alone under Green Pill and still win by itself; putting two other From games with it isn't fair.
Red pill but can I swap out Sekiro for Demon's Soul please.
Only played two of them but love both bloodborne and ds1 for what they are. I like the fast pace of bloodborne while also liking the slow paced block attack of ds1
Red pill but i just love ds1 so much i'll do it crying
god i need a bloodborne 2 before i die
Sekiro is the yellow lightning pill.
Mmm... lemon flavor...
If DS1 is slow, what is King's Field? Either way, blue pill easily
can i take half and see how I feel
On 1 hand - blue pill has Dark Souls 1 world......on the other it has DS2......
I'll take the Red Pill.
I snatch them both out of Morpheus' hands and swallow both.
Blue pill all the way. Dark rolls 3 is just awful.
RED RED RED RED
Depends on the mood
I really really enjoyed ds2, but I'll go red
Red pill forever
Red hard af
Redpill 100%, even though I feel Sekiro and BB are much faster than DS3 and deserve to be in their own bracket.
red would be perfect if it had dark souls instead of DS3.
Gotta go fast with soulslike so i take the red one
Beep. Boop. I'm a robot.

Always the blue pill.
Red for suuuuure
blue pill any day of the week
Easy Red pill.
Red no contest.
I love all the Souls games. Sekiro teats my mental residency each time I play it though.
Blue all day
fast, Sekiro and Bloodborne hit different when in the flow.
Red, no question. Bloodborne and Sekiro are my favourite games of all time and Dark Souls III is great aswell
