ive always wanted to try this series, but never picked up demons souls. should i just skip that and pick this one up, or just start with demons souls?
There's no storyline connection and Demon's Souls is only on PS3. If you have both systems, it would be cheaper to get Demon's Souls now and wait for a price drop on Dark Souls. Or you could skip Demon's Souls entirely and get Dark Souls for your preferred system.
