    To the OP - I suck at hard games, but I was able to finish DS2 recently, thanks to some of the gents here in the forums. Especially Gryzemuis. Check out the last few pages of
    this thread for more details.

    Demon's Souls if you can, DS1 if that's not an option. The sequels are harder games.

    DS2 upped the difficulty by making most encounters 1 vs many whereas the original was mainly 1v1. DS3 made the games harder by speeding up the combat.

    I would (highly) recommend what some have already said here:

    Go in order if you can, starting, if possible, with Demon's Souls.

    Good. Don't feel bad about taking a look at the wiki if there's something you can't make sense of. I consulted it a lot on my first DS playthrough, and it didn't tarnish the experience.

    Considering the game does a shoddy job at explaining its many core systems, the wiki can save you a LOT of grief early on.

    DS 1 is a great place to start. <3

    Yup, I used wiki for all DS titles, there's no shame in that:

    It wasn’t until sometime after making it to the Undead Settlement that I realised that I could lock on to enemies. Boy was it a challenge before that.

    Wow I wouldn't make past first bonfire without locking...

    I consulted the wiki for Demon's and Dark, but I felt kind of cheated by spoiling myself. I didn't look at the wiki for 2, 3, and Bloodborne and that ended up being much more rewarding. That said no shame in playing in the way that best suits you - just wanted to relay that if I could go back in time I would urge myself not to get spoiled and if I got stuck, to just ask questions on the forum instead.

    I played DS1 with a PS4 controller and didn't have any issues. I tried mouse + KB but the camera controls were really janky. There's a new fix out that's supposed to fix it, but I didn't find it that much better.
    However, I played DS3 with the controller then tried KB+M on the 3rd playthrough and it's basically easy mode. I don't bother locking onto bosses/enemies anymore because I can just use the mouse to keep the enemy in my sights.
    I'll never go back to playing DS3 with the controller, because the mouse support is pretty tight.
    Also, don't play DS1 without DSFix. Lots of options to fix things broken with the game. Just don't go over 60fps, or you might break the game in weird ways. (game is wonderful at 144hz, except you can't run anymore lol).

    EDIT: I just wanted to say that I rage quit DS1 for 2 years after getting assraped on my first several attempts and never thought I would go back to it. I'm glad I did, it's in my top 5 games of all time.
