With a bit more emphasis on PvP rather than PvE.

PvE for me is more important, so without quetion Dark Souls 2 by a HUGE margin. For PvP my vote would still go for DS2:Scholar of the first sin, but there were many patches before this was achieved.

I don't think that can be said for 100% for sure until DS3 at least has had it's first DLC. If we compared the games off of launch though DS3 hands down.

This poll is going to be skewed, likely towards DkS2.

In my mind, DeS had the most "balanced" PvP however, that was with all the gitches and exploits and community rules. I doubt there's that many people still around that were deep into the DeS PvP community to really understand that. To outsiders, it probably just looks like a mess.

The most balanced by design is probably a toss up but the most mature one would have been DkS2 since it's gone through all the patches and people have figured most things out. So subjectively, more people will end up voting for DkS2.

It should really be specified what is balanced.

Regardless, I voted DS2.

I hope most people that voted ds2 have voted for its release and not the state it is right now, you know with the infinite stunlocks the mundane daggers/santier spear/avelyn, the super strong armor, etc.

When I think balanced, I immediately think of broken and exploitable mechanics. For this reason I feel Bloodborne was the most balanced...say what you will about op gem and gun parry one shots, these are what the game is about.

When I think about all the things that have been exploited in Demon/Dark souls, the list is so much longer than Bloodborne.

What do you define as balance? Any class with any loadout against any other class with any loadout? Counters are a part of balance. Not sure how Bloodborne was but I tend to lean towards DS3 in the above sense.
