Matchmaking work bloodborne doesnt scene hotter than

For a newcomer: Bloodborne or Dark Souls III?

Oh stop it. Bloodborne will not be easy for a newcomer to the series, and the fact that it's streamlined is the reason why I'd say go with Bloodborne first, OP.

They're both fantastic games, and while I think Dark Souls III edges out Bloodborne ever so slightly (imo), don't listen to anyone who tells you it's not a Souls game. It is in everything but name. The core concept of bonfires, losing souls (echos in this case) etc is something that you can learn from Bloodborne. The rest: Magic, different builds etc is something that's far more overwhelming and so I'd leave Dark Souls III until you've had a taste for the formula. It'll be much more satisfying.
Dark Souls 3 because the multiplayer matchmaking actually works and there are tons of weapons and armor sets compared to the limited amount in Bloodborne. Bloodborne is also not a souls game.


Get Bloodborne if you want a easy, streamlined, oversimplified game compared to Dark Souls.
lol someone's got a chip on their shoulder

Bloodborne for sure. It's not only one of the best games in the series it's very easy to get into as opposed to other games. There's still a lot of depth, it's just not as complicated for a newcomer to the series.
There are shields called Blood Vials. They allow you to be a moron 20x over.
IMO Bloodborne is the hardest game in the series because you can't rely on shields. It forces you to learn the dodge and parry systems. I would say start with Dark Souls 3 but definitely play BB (and DS2 SotFS) later.
And Estus Flasks allow you to be a moron 14x over, and can be recharged at bonfires...

In fact, you can upgrade Estus Flasks to recover silly amounts of health on one swig so I don't get what you're saying here.
I was a newcomer to BB, I don't think it's exceptionally hard. Amazing game though. I'm surprised people are saying it's harder as I assumed I was getting the dark souls Lite treatment.

The initial mob around the fire killed me a number of times, but then when I slunk past them I accidentally first timed the first boss (met CB first), and second timed the second boss (which everyone said was the test of if you've mastered BBs systems yet).
Eh, I'd say it's the easiest what with the health recovery system and the easier parry system. And DS3 has more bosses than 1 that require you to dodge and parry, I'm not sure I'd say BB forces you to learn those things any more than DS3 does.

I'd start with DS1 personally but if you want to decide only between BB and DS3 go with BB. It doesn't assume any prior knowledge of the other games so it's a good jumping off point, and the fact that you're supposed to pay aggressively makes it less likely that you'll stumble around not knowing whether you should be going with a magic character, or leveling dexterity or strength, or whether prayers or pyromancies will help you more, etc. BB is a lot more straightforward.
