Looking at picking up Dragons Dogma: Dark Arisen or Dark Souls 3...any opinions? I'm also open to any other suggestions.

Personally I’d go with dark souls 3 because I love the dark souls series but dragons dogma is definitely worth getting too.

Dark souls 3 is obviously more difficult especially if you get the DLC.

Dragons Dogma is more open world than dark souls and you can climb on dragons and other big enemies to fight them. Also you will generally have 3 companions with you to help fight.

Can’t go wrong with either choice imo.
Because the internet mistakes are forever.

Dark souls 3 is easily the best recent action rpg alonside Bloodborne (another souls game). Not that Dragons Dogma is bad, Ds3 (and the whole souls series) has everything an action rpg needs imo.

How does the gameplay differ? I've heard Dragons Dogma is similar to that of the Souls game. Does Souls also have magic/archery?

Dragon's Dogma isn't like a Souls game, the gameplay is kind of like DMC and MH combined imo.

Dark Souls 3 has magic and archery but Dragon's Dogma does the archery better.

Both good games though you can't go wrong but I give the edge to Dragon's Dogma

Dark Souls 3 is the worst Souls game. Dragon's Dogma is the best game last gen.

Imo it's the best, tied with dark souls 1. And even the worst souls game still is top dog regarding action rpg's.

I have trouble considering Souls games as ARPGs personally. They are good games, but they rely on memorization, repetition, and timing as opposed to being as focused on character, story, and exploration as I'm used to from ARPGs.
They remind me more of a tactical JRPG, despite not being turn based (strictly speaking).

I prefer Dragons Dogma, or Witcher 3 if you haven't played it yet.
