I think Demon souls as an RPG gives Dragon Age a very good run for the money. Both are superlative in their respective executions of the RPG genre. I find each of their worlds fascinating, though i would obviously give the edge to Dragon Age for dialogue (Bioware FTW!) and Demon Souls for far more realistic portrayal/gameplay (Funcom FTW!). Suprisingly to me even, I give equal marks for both games being punishing. I keep reloading Demon Souls for not playing a perfect game, but just as tragically I reload Dragon Age for not playing out a perfect dialogue scenario (or realizing consequences down the line).

If I need to give a slight edge right now... I would say Demon souls because I have completely no idea of how this story will play out... whereas Dragon Age has that familiar D&D lore to it.
