What are the major differences gameplay wise?? Gameplay wise, DS1 is a bit slower and takes weight into account more. Not much difference though. It doesn't have those fancy weapon arts from DS3 either. The huge difference is how the world is designed. DS1 is the least linear in the series. The world is more intricate and interwoven, as opposed to the large sequential areas of DS3 and Bloodborne. Part of that difference is noted by the fact that there's no warping between bonfires in DS1 until late in the game. You always have to walk to the place you're going. Which adds cool new aspects to the gameplay, like having to decide whether to light a bonfire at the bottom of a massive pit so you can heal or just avoid doing so so you can use your death to return to the top of that pit. It works incredibly well in DS1 and it was my biggest disappointment with the rest of the series that they abandoned this approach and just had warping between different areas that are miles apart.
