I’m sorry, but there’s nothing about Skyrim better in any way than The Witcher 3. I think it’s sad that because people still by Skyrim it allows BGS to make a cop out game like fallout 76.

imo, Skyrim's mechanics are lowsy, but the exploration part is really well done. The story is weak too. The Witcher 3 on the other hand shines exactly where Skyrim fails

I'm afraid I have to disagree with you Floyd.

There are going to be a lot of wildly varying opinions on this one, and I'm on the complete opposite side of the fence as you.

I think Skyrim in superior in quite literally every conceivable way. It's not even close.

Infantile RPG elements. Floaty combat. Barebones story. Bland, unoriginal characters. Skyrim is a randomized, action lootfest. That, Witcher 3 is not.

It’s interesting, these two are frequently paired up as some of the greatest games. But for me personally? They are the most boring games I’ve every played

How many games have you play, 3?

Well it depends on your tastes I guess

Eidolon93d ago (Edited 93d ago )

His tastes are basically 100% action, no story, COD gives him a hard on, he wants WAR!

It makes sense, i loved the sidestories where as i felt the main was too much

The Witcher doesn't offer anything approaching customizing your character or anything for that matter. And I can't stand Geralt so there's that.

Vegamyster93d ago

Skill tree (combat/signs/alchemy), weapons/armor/clothing, hairstyles ect isn't customization?

Bobafret93d ago (Edited 93d ago )

The whole character is a fevered dream of an 8th grade Goth kid and what they think is "bad ass" or manly. It's dopey af.

Love skyrim. Still have the witcher sitting in my back log

I love both of these game so much. I think Skyrim does the 'open world' aspect better, it's easier to get immersed and role-play in Skyrim. However Witcher 3 does have better characters and a more interesting story. Both games have some great side-quests. I don't think either game does combat well, so I will say it's a draw there.

Combat in witcher 3 is excellent.
The combat on skyrim is terrible though.

I especially like how you specifically prepare for your prey in Witcher with oils and traps and potions. The set up magic combos.
