These games are very different and they might not appeal to the same public. If that was a choice that I have to make it, I think I would play The Witcher 1 first. When I played Dark Souls I made a bunch of characters and waste way too much timing invading, getting invaded and co-oping. It's a good game, but I lost my focus while playing, getting bored of my character only to make a new one. If you don't have a problem with that, well, play whatever game you think it's better now.

Good god, such negativity towards The Witcher. It took me 30 hours including all the side missions, it was fun, well written and an absolutely fantastic experience.

Don't listen to these gold fish, play The Witcher and then the sequel. A great series that has more fun played in order!

You can start with either The Witcher 2 or Dark Souls, both are good. Witcher 2 doesn't suffer from a crappy second half though, so maybe you would like that better.

Avoid the Witcher.

I couldn't stand the Witcher 1, it had almost nothing interesting, it was so incredibly bland, the combat was dreadful and I hated the main character. I couldn't stand Dark Souls either, made every casual scream "hardcore" as a definition of "tedious waste of time", and I didn't like the combat either. (or the controls, who the heck uses the bumpers to attack.)

Witcher 2 is probably better, but I never jump to the 2nd in that sort of RPG without playing through the first, which I never will. Really, I find both are big shadows on what true games of their genre should be like. They're just annoying games that aren't very well designed at all.

the first witcher sucks, give it a pass.

i hear the second was better but playing the first one spoiled me on the series.

give dark souls a go, remember to not even try to use the KBM controls.
