Two different games. Like the above poster said, the more bang for your buck will be Dark Souls. But with it comes anger, frustration, rage and a sense of hopelessness. Demon Souls was at first this way for me. I played it and threw on the back shelf only to come back to it months later to find I loved it. Its a patience game. If your looking for a quick fix of shooter glory then its Rage. I personally bought Dark Souls and rented Rage. This way when I want to kill the creators of Dark I will simply put Rage in and calm down. Either way you have two great looking games.
