    Was certainly better than Skyrim, and not plagued by bugs everywhere. It would get my vote!

    It's deffinitely the best game on ps3 along with the Hunted Demon's Forge and Vanquish. The rest is out of quality.

    Still am not sure if I like DkS or Demon's Souls more. Each one is good in their own way. DkS improved a lot of things from DS but, certain aspects of scaling weapons appealed to me more in Demon's Souls.

    In my opinion, I would have to say dark souls is in my top 5 but not the best of the year.

    I played a lot of Skyrim, then started to grow weary of the unending grind. Went back to Dark for about 150 hours of awesome coop with a couple of friends. Tried to go back to Skyrim recently, and realized just how terrible the melee combat is. I'd say Dark is my personal GOTY.

    I bought Dark Souls too see what's that when I was waiting like some fking fanboy for 11.11.11 and when I realized after 2-3 weeks of playing Skyrim how terrible that **** is I went back to Dark Souls. Nothing is better for me right now. It leaves the console only when my friends come up to smoke/drink and we play some fighting like tekken. Skyrim... Quest -> dungeon -> iron mace, iron mace, iron mace, steel sword, iron mace -> give the quest back -> another quest -> another the same looking dungeon -> iron mace, iron mace, enchanted iron mace!! -> steel sword ... and so on and on. Did I forget to mention bugs?

    They released an unfinished product in my eyes, they don't deserve any form of credit. Fallout New Vegas should have been an eye openener but nooooope!

    I don't completely hate Skyrim or anything...I love the immersive world, but like venomblader said, the repetitive quests and locations just wear you down. And then there's the combat, which is so bad in Skyrim compared to Dark and Demons. I just can't take playing that clunky crap for hours on end.

    Skyrim still got raved about by game journalists when it's a bugged out pile of **** that hasnt changed since oblivion except making magic more viable. thats it, just annoys me that game.

    I cant believe it's got an average score of like 95% when it's just big, not good. Bigger doesnt mean better and skyrim is perfect example.

    agreed. and i love skyrim for a very different reason than i love souls. i would prefer it if we could avoid useless skyrim bashing here. we're all better than that and so is this forum.

    Look at the amazing spells that were present in Morrowind. Chameleon, sanctuary, water walking, sprint, bound armor, maaaany summoned creatures and many many more spells. Where are they now? Making your own magic in Morrowind? Where is it? Where is school of mysticism. Look at the weapon choice in Morrowind comparable to DkS. Where is it in Skyrim? WTF?? How can it be bigger?? sword/mace/axe/dagger/bow - iron/steel/dwarven/orcish/ebony/glass/daedric... Where the *** is complicity in this? They made Elder Scrolls so retarded that you can compare it to Assassin's creed **** or other boring stuff like prototype. Why that moron Todd Howard said in every review that they achieved more stuff than in earlier games? He lied! And that's how Skyrim got it's reviews - media gets paid, game gets laid.

    Sry, but I had to let it out of me :'(

    yeah true, to be fair though i dont blame bethesda, it's their job to make game and release it, not to say whether it's any good or not. it's the media that over hypes stuff, it's like they all gave it good reviews because they'd lose face if they said it was crap after the circus that surrounded it..

    Why I stopped caring about media hype and try anything I touch before I buy it.

    I was soo pissed at EA/DICE for the BF3 'beta' crap they pulled that I refuse to touch any game made/published by them.

    Yes that includes that new kingdoms of amaluar or whatever, EA can bite my shiney metal...

    Japan makes fun of outside games, and theyre right about it. The best games are always from japan, they do it with passion. If it won't sell good they will do it anyway. NA/EU buisness with games is that to rip off something really quick or do any s h i t just hoping that it will sell. The best example for this are the modern f2p mmorpg's. It's impossible to count how many of them is a WoW ripoff.

    However I played some recent good games from Bethesda (Hunted Demon's Forge my fav and BRINK)and also I'm big fan of Morrowind that's why I got hyped about Skyrim so much along with the media. How much, oh how much was I disappointed :/

    Glitches, boring grindfests and a story that left you wanting aside. Bethesda did create a beautiful world to explore in Skyrim. You're in denial if you think otherwise.

    Actually I'm pretty sure the popular free to play with an ingame buying with real money idea came from Korea. They just happened to realize it was a gold mine and being greedy are trying to turn out as many different forms as they can.

    In my opinion a beautiful game is useless is there's *** all in it.

    I get games to play them not to stare at imaginary scenery, can go for a drive in the country if i wanna sight see.
