For me it's something about the atmosphere, specifically the nexus... It's hypnotizing me in a way.

For me, besides character appearance customization, world tendency, and lack of covenants and jump attacks (and graphics obviously), everything is better in Demon's Souls than in Dark Souls.

Atmosphere, characters, weapons, magic, classes(barbarian class for the WIN!), story...

Also, Demon's Souls has the best boss in the entire souls series..............me :twisted:
There once was a hunter from Nantuckit
Who was going to die anyway, so he said, "fu*k it!"
"I’ll hunt the beasts of Yarnam.
To get blood vials, I’ll farm them,
and kill them all before I kick the bucket."

Faces don't make the man Five, it's what he types that counts.

This is nothing like a Praise post tho.

They took a mechanically sound, by-the-books fantasy RPG, built it around a tight risk/reward formula, and then combined singleplayer and multiplayer in a seamless and intuitive way. IMO, I'd say the unique multiplayer is what really kicked it off, and if there was just a separate multiplayer like every other game of the time it wouldn't be all that notable beyond the unusually intense single player. Everything else about the game is well done, but not new or unusual beyond being well executed.

Lemme see:
-Multiplayer.
-Extremely interconnected map design.

I think that's it.

Interconnected map design in Demon's Souls? What strange and wonderful alternate dimension do you come from?

Perhaps that's the case. It's not that this is a different Praise, BUT A DIFFERENT FIVE!
