Ive never played Souls before, it looks really good. I havent read much about the game, but is it a game that I have to experience the first two to enjoy the third?
Yes and no. This is the third in the series so there will be a lot of throw backs to the previous two games (references, weapons, bosses, enemies etc) but you will be able to understand and enjoy the game either way
You may not understand the lore as well as someone who's played all three, but you'll still be able to piece it together
I also highly reccomend playing the other two. DkS1 is a masterpiece and number two, although much less fluid and considerably worse story line was still a good game.
