I've heard several people speak highly of the Dark Souls lore.
Personally, I haven't played Dark Souls more than 10-15 hours - but I didn't detect any lore worthy of much note.
I did play a ton of Demon's Souls - and the lore was equally vague and "mystically" elusive.
While I can't be certain, I think it's down to how much your imagination works for you in games like this. Some people seem able to create sufficient "lore" just by imagining it's there - and that probably speaks to how powerful the atmosphere must be.
That said, I was tired of the bleak and sparse environments after playing Demon's Souls - so I might have overlooked the brilliance other people are referring to.
