Skyrim or Dark Souls?

Thank you for the replies all. Just decided to take the plunge with Skyrim. Here's hoping I won't run into the bugs so often pointed out.

Bad decision. And not only because Skyrim is a buggy mess of a game, but because Dark Souls is just far superior in every way.

Played skyrim for 40hrs and drks for about 140hrs. For obvious reasons drks is the better game. Skyrim starts out great then becomes tedious and boring. It feels so deserted for only having to interact with NPCs with an A.I. of an a little child. Drks online actually gives it a way longer span of fun factor to having meet different character builds and ofcourse the fair share of invaders to make the game more challenging. Never a dull a moment with drks and a bad decision for having to pick up skyrim especially if u enjoyed demons souls.

Dark Souls impressed me way, WAY more than Skyrim, which I put over 100 hours into. Probably played a bit less of Dark Souls but thats mostly because my hard drive crashed towards the end of my second run, had to reformat and rather than start over decided to move on.

Skyrim is amazing in terms of scale. And it is addicting. But it gets pretty repetitive and becomes too easy. One of the best games this year, but the height to which a lot of people are putting it at isn't justified.

Dark Souls on the other hand didn't bore me once, was a challenge from start to finish, and never felt repetitive save for the few times I decided to farm some souls or materials. I'll probably never care to play Skyrim again, but I sure as hell will be playing Dark Souls many more times in the future.
Currently playing: Skyrim
You think the carpet pissers did this?

I enjoyed immensely Demon's Souls, and have never played an FO or Elder Scrolls game before. However, gameplay videos of Skyrim made me think of RDR, which I also enjoyed greatly.

Which game should I get?

watch this

If you like what you see, get Skyrim.
Otherwise get Dark Souls and get Skyrim after they flipping patched it.

I myself enoy Skyrim far more than Dark Souls, which is odd to me since I hated Oblivion. For some reason Dark Souls is boring to me even though I loved Demon Souls.
When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading.

Don't get Skyrim until they actually fix the issues it has on PS3.

Can't go wrong with either game. And don't listen to the DS fanboys, because neither game is WAY better than the other.
If they get me, tell future generations that I died as I lived: in utter terror of bees.
