Both seem to be really popular on the boards, both have high reviews, and both are also a little bit notorious for their difficult combat.

Dark Souls. But only just. The Witcher is hands down the best story driven RPG this gen. But Dark Sous is my favourite game this gen (along with Nier), so it wins by default.

Aye. I can't choose; both are equally amazing in their own ways.

Not really a fair comparison, imho.
Other than both containing a Fantasy theme, their style is a considerably different.
The Witcher 2 is very much a traditional Western RPG, whereas Dark Souls is more of an Action/RPG hybrid.

But I personally prefer Dark Souls.
Witcher 2 has the better story, deeper RPG components, and interesting NPC dialog...but Dark SOuls has better combat and is just more fun to play, imho.

Both are great games. But not for everyone.

But comparing Witcher 2 to Dark Souls is like comparing Fallout 3 to Borderlands.

Really how so? So in the comparison which one would be closer to FO3 and which would be closer to Borderlands?

I chose the Witcher 2 even though I've never played it. Darks Souls sucks ass.

Before you comment on one of my posts, please research the Dunning-Kruger effect. Best game of all time: Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. Gamefaqs mods are a joke.

^ Because Fallout 3 would be the real RPG (Witcher 2), whereas Borderlands would be the FPS (Action) with some RPG elements thrown in (Dark Souls).

I love Dark Souls, and is one of my favorite games of all time...but I don't consider it a serious RPG either.
Sure, it has RPG elements, but it is first & foremost an Action game.

I loved both games for different reasons.

Dark Souls is my favorite game this gen though, so that got my vote.
