Should I buy Witcher 3 or Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen /v/?
It's not even close, Witcher 3 is in another league. DD is fun but it's like just barely fun enough to justify how shitty everything else is. They are totally different experiences though, if you are looking for a story/immersion go with witcher if you are looking for fun gameplay go with DD.
Witcher 3 is better in every possible way. And yes, even the combat is better.
If you want a polished adventure with great story, visuals and ridiculous amount of content pick witcher. If you wanna jump in fuck around right away and RP.kill some huge monsters and have a jolly time in a Jap RPG u pick DD. Combat is about on the same lvl, DD is apparently a last gen title but has strong RPG elements and magic system, witcher is a modern and well polished release with good everything. (Bad combat is a meme from shitposter and casuals who played on easy and cheesed through the game and still had a hard time )
Witcher 3 for action rpg as in feeling the world, talking to people and having a nice adventure
DD for action rpg as in I'm climbing a griffin setting his wings ablaze while my loli is summoning tornado holy shit I'm tripping balls.
If you want a story heavy RPG Witcher
If you want great combat Dogma (it has a good story but it takes forever to get to it)
I'd recommend witcher first so you don't compare it to the frankly superior combat of DD whilst playing
They're both in my top 5 RPGs ever so you can't really go wrong
way better combat, press light attack or hold B to charge up your big smash, no dodging, parry, stagger. It lie playing DMC son. Magic is dope but iget boring fast as hell because you have to stand there for 30 sec animation to finish and absolutely no depth to it. Archers are fun nothing bad to say about the, and assassin is just rock climbing sim. It was good combat in comparison to skyrim, but witcher's combat system is on a different level considering you actually use it to it's potential. If u cast same sign whole game it's obviously gonna be a bad experience.
obviously outleveled the quest by at least 10 lvls ( its when you can stagger big opponents) and playing on easy since he never jumped away. You can make the same webm with any game. If I cast High Bolide on a cyclops and one shot it , I could maek a webm claiming DD is a game with no depth or challange.
They're both quite good, The Witcher 3 is my 2015 GOTY but Dragon's Dogma is my all time favorite game. So Dragon's Dogma but I do highly recommend you play The Witcher 3 some time in the future.
Dragons dogma is fun but it is overrated as fuck, it's full of MMO quests like kill 50 faggots and escort retard across the entire world. It's like an action game in an open world that throws some really half assed and ultimately just annoying RPG elements into the mix. Most of the appeal is just the combat, everything else is just an annoyance that wastes your time in between the combat parts.
I agree op should get TW3 it won GOTY from many respectable publications.
I don't like how shitposting about dragons dogma is the new meme. Is it console cucks false flagging because they lost it? PC Cucks whining becuase it's not dark souls? Cucks cucks cucks cucks cucks cucks cucks cucks cucks memes memes memes memems memems
Dragon's Dogma for PC is a god sent t b h, it's so much fun to play magic knight now, it's incredible
What kind of law is that?
I'd go for W3.
It has by far the better story and world.
DD has the (initially) better combat, but climbing the same 3 monsters gets pretty boring. Now W3 combat gets pretty boring as well, but you still have at least story, sidequests and a more varied world.
Unless you're a magicfag. In that case go for DD, it's magic system is awesome.
Dragon's dogma is quite a new game on PC and not that popular so it's /v/ approved.
>Says to getr the Witcher 3 because it wins awards
>Posts combat webm of The Witcher 3 that consists entirely of just circle strafing around an enemy while mindlessly swinging for 5 minutes
Looks like a clear winner to me
I agree with the people who said get both, why choose when you can have it all?
I prefer DD though since it's just a lot of fun
Staggering them with heavy weaponry seems to work fine until like a 1/10 of their health, when they grow frenzied
Then it's just lots of stabbing and fire magic
>half the content trivial so easily
I'm ok with it when there is another 50 hours of content ahead of me to go through. Your complain is only valid if you are an autist with OCD who has to try %100 the game on first playthrough. If you feel like going back to Velen after 10/15 lvl when there is as shitton of quest for your lvl than it's your won fault.
It's decently written and has somewhat realistic characters.
It's about how it modernizes the medieval fantasy genre, but how it's a good example about what it can reach. It also 'respects' the player since it isn't as dumbed down as skyrim.
Now, if you put it in perspective, The Witcher isn't near the great stories of humanity. The Iliad, Don Quijote or Moby Dick are miles above it, but that doesn't make it bad per se.
whoa, it's like Skyrim
none of those potions give infinite stamina or 100% crit rate
The Witcher 3 is better in most aspects, not to mention has a bigger budget and in general better quality.
But Dragon's Dogma is great for the adventure, not to mention the fact that you create your own character and pawn. This together with the dowhateveryouwant style of story makes it a pretty goose RPG.
Is this a serious question?
DD gets boring after 5+ hours because you realize how boring everything is
I shit you not its so fucking generic its a pain
>Respawning enemies everywhere you go
>Quests so tedious you will die of boredom
I combined both of tese just to demonstrate you shitty they are:
>Go to the tower X and defeat nigger x
>Go there through the forest f big monsters
>Big monsters attack you and your boys/girls
>Fight them off
>Go to tower
>Go back ( because no fast travel )
>The same shitty monsters are there again
I wish i was kidding
>World is a lifeless generic filled piece of crap
The towns were huge but you couldnt enter 80% of the building and the NPcs were all just doing nothing or no NPCS could be found.
>Music is so generic you will not even remember one song
Cant remember anything so bland it was
Geralt has quite a cool moveset and fighting on higher levels takes actually skill.
In DD you have your allies that heal everything everytime you cant die at all
So yes take The Witcher 3
You'll either miss out on the great combat of DD and lower a possibility of it getting a sequel (one copy isn't much at all but it does count)
or on TW3's... uh, decent story, I guess? It's not that great of an experience, don't bother.
Do you want gameplay?
Do you story and cutscenes?
I recommend saving money and getting both
Do you do this for free?
>go to a movie afterwards
>turned away because of the no singles policy
It's good senpai
If you don't understand the undertones and how it impacted literature I feel sorry for you
I mean, far more intelligent people than you and me have praised it and considered it one of the most important novels of history, there's a reason for it that you are trying to dismiss because:
>Do you do this for free
Why didnt you quote the guy who posts the same WEBM in every Witcher 3 related thread?
I mean i saw these webms atleast 50 times now everytime with the same filnename and the same comments?
>this sonyggger spamming webms still mad that bloodborne got btfo
I'm levelling sorc to 100 then assassin for the 100-200 bit so I get nice mixed stats to use every class and seeing stuff like that makes my dick diamonds.
Although, the first non-cyclops/ogre large monster I've seen since unlocking gicel and bolide was a golem, so it took forever
Could you explain how these
were debunked? Or what the problem is in those webms anyway?
I never had such wacky hitboxes as shown in those webms, so I'm curious as to what happened there.
dragon's dogma, no contest. I didn't find witcher 3 all that impressive, especially coming off the previous games. the combat, while improved over 2, was still shit and I didn't care for the story. it felt like someone's witcher fanfiction where all the main characters were trying to save the author's mary sue that everyone cared deeply about.
>ciri is a character from the books, retard. she's not fanfiction
I know, but that's how it feels in the game.
More or less passable gameplay
Story itself is not necessarily that much to write home about, some cliches like a character going super Saiyan when another character dies
Highest difficulty does not offer enough of a challenge
Sailing is awful
Again, why are you talking about a game you have no clue about?
You don't even know what the fuck blizzard does and you don't have a single clue about it's superior variant.
Go and kill yourself, idiot.
look OP just pirate them both and buy the one you personally feel deserves to be supported the most, there are too many autists here who are unwilling to accept that a game they like is anything other than a masterpiece
>Meh everything else
>shitty boring empty world other than fighting huge monsters
>decent side quest writing, shit main quest writing, meh everything else
>shitty open world other than playing Gwent
Neither are very good
First of all they are old because the inventory was changed
One of them is using a hack on Pc to have unlimited Stamina
The WEBM hitboxes were known glitches/bugs that were allready fixed .
It was pretty common to post WEBM's about things you found funny mentionworthy.
Too bad the threads cant be seen anymore because the old archieve died but one in 50 WEBMS had glitched/bugged content that this autistic ANon is spamming in every tread he sees that is related to The Witcher 3
one of the shitposters who is still butthurt about the success Geralt got
>The Witcher 3 is a masterpiece, and in many respects simply the best and most exciting game in recent years. It captivates players with artistic vision, a huge world and an epic story. The developers were not looking for cheap applause - game design is uncompromising, consistent, thoughtful and nuanced. 10/10
of course they'd give it a 10/10. shaking my head.
so witcher fanboys are the type that bury their heads in the sand and act like nothing's wrong. I see.
STOP POSTING THESE WEBMS THEY'VE LITERALLY ALL BEEN DEBUNKED GET A LIFE
Found the kid with the shitty opinion
Cant even get mad right now because i remember all the autists saying how bad The Witcher 3 will be ( proven false ) and how the game will bomb ( proven false again ) and how it will not win anythig ( Guess who won more than 180 GOTY awards )
Long story short: The autists spamming this WebM is pretty pathetic but a little bit annoying
>Shitposting, while posting your own refutations, this really might be a mental case anon, im worried about you shitposter-kun, witcher thread won't be the same without you if you have a meltdown.
It's always the same few images shitposters desperately seek attention with.
It's surprising people are still taking the bait though, or choose to argue against the amount of stupidity being put up.
Witcher 3, it's the RPG of the decade, everyone I know who played it loved it (except /v/ because they're contrarian faggots)
Dragon's Dogma is a great game too, but its flaws are way more apparent, game can feel half-assed, and I know it's hit or miss for some people (except for /v/ because they're contrarian faggots)
Buy both, starting with TW3
>The autists spamming this WebM is pretty pathetic
so is the poster trying to convince everyone it's all been debunked.
do you have an rss feed that lets you know whenever someone makes a witcher thread so you can come in and start defending it?
It is improving with every dlcs that come out
Also this http://www.nexusmods.com/witcher3/mods/882/?
I dont know what you guys see in dd but it is boring as crap. you better give ea or fromsoft shekels for kingdom of amalur or dank souls if you want a real rpg with passable uis, real character building, good lore and engaging combat that dont rely on WE R JAPANESE and SPECTACLE to sell.
>Get Dragon's Dogma gifted to me even though I told a friend I likely wouldn't enjoy it
>Discover a cyclops early on as I'm still struggling with the game
>Latch onto its eye and punching it, health isn't going down much
>My pawns are staggering it in the meantime but hitting its legs
>It starts to tumble off a cliff
>Pivot off it's head just before it falls into the ocean
I went from really forcing myself to play it to finding it fucking amazing so it was a nice surprise.
that would be dragon's dogma actually
Was it for a steak or a burger? Most places won't give you medium rare burgers because the beef is ground in advance so bacteria has time to develop and it becomes a health hazard. The only restaurants where they'll serve you rare hamburgers in Canada are the ones where they grind beef to order.
If it was a steak then they're full of shit, there isn't a single law in Canada preventing you from ordering blue steak if that's your thing.
So not only do you nothing about the game, you are even too fucking retarded to take the clue in my post and google it?
Why do you faggots have the urge to keep posting on when you are already called out on knowing nothing? Do you actually think you can turn the whole situation around and somehow look like someone who isn't a complete and utter retard?
The Superior Blizzard has the additional effect (all superior variants have a certain additional effect) that stamina does NOT deplete anymore once you hit 3 adrenaline points.
The player in the webm DOES have 3 adrenaline points, so the superior blizzard procs and freezes the stamina.
Whirl works in that way that it first depletes your stamina, and once that's empty it would deplete adrenaline. Now because stamina never gets depleted the Whirl never has to access the adrenaline points, thus you can spin as long as you have blizzards.
the kill quests are nothing more than xp and gold incentives to fight monsters. If you sit there and grind for 45 rabbits or 50 zombies or whatever all at once then you fucked up. Just fight them as you see them while doing the main quests. That's all they're there for.
you need to take risk to really enjoy DD...don't just stick to the main quest and don't just sleep in the Inn at night to make time past. Go out at night and see what it's like run into different kinds of enemies.
Dragon's Dogma let's you do all sorts of shit.
Witcher 3 you fight the same three enemy types reskinned. At least DD gives you six or so enemy types.
>want to play The Witcher 3
>more or less playable on my toaster
>still can't bring myself to stomach sub-60 fps on medium settings
>runs slightly better on low, but can't stand the way it looks
I've been ruined.
Kingdom's of Amalur is a fucking piece of shit game though. I struggled to get through it big time. The combat is shit. The story is meh, and the itemization and loot is some of the worst i've ever experienced.
>oh you found the most epic legendary in the game with unique stats? Don't worry, you can go craft a 10 times better magic one with boringass stats on it.
>tfw no harpy waifu to fly you around
>Thats what people really believe
I know Mustard you are happy that a new game is on Steam that isnt a fucking Indi game or a survival game but stop lying please.
DD is bland as fuck and the only things worth mentioning are
>Guys i can climb on the enemy!!!111
>Guys i can have a loli near me!
While i agree that DD has way better combat, and some things that makes it fun in other ways, Witcher 3 has a lot better exploration, lore and a lot more things to do than just slaughter enemies and look for the best gear there is. Witcher 3 also lacks epic bossfights. Most bosses are pushovers, whereas DD has some insane fights, especially on hardmode.
Your opinion is shitty m8 please consider suicide.
Why am i even "arguing" with you?
DD was medicore at best, critics and the absolute of majority of players said the same thing.
It flopped and now you fat virgins jerk off to it on PC while nobody cares for it anymore .
t is forgotten and a sequel will never be made because it was such a financial disaster.
Stop bothering everybody here with your minority opinion.
DD IS all style no substance. I play it on hard mode and see all its bullshit. I dont complain about the enemies. The combo you get is totally crap and at odd with the rpg mechanic. You have a kick to stagger opponent better. But better do a light attack first :^), what's that your heavy attack can stagger them now? too bad you bought this for 2000 skill points :^). AI range from a punching bag to lmao let me kill that while you sit back. I also cant into enemy grouping or cc at all, just watch me throw flashbang everywhere. What's that, you press f1 and point to a rock? do you mean i should attack the enemies at the opposite direction? Also we have 10 different receipts for one thing while ingredients respawn on a daily basis. We can into rpg XD too. See that bandit over there that look exactly like that bandit you just kill, he is actually 20 levels above him, hardcore acshun arrpeegee amirite XD. Also the npcs you must escort stop moving if you scout ahead and act on their own, good luck.
Witcher has always been more storyfaggotry and dont advertise as anything more than that. And it exceed that in every aspect.
Also it has real mod support. Not skyrim tier but sure as hell not just texture swapping, one million enbs, sweetfx preset or music swap tier.
Dragon's Dogma has much better gameplay and combat.
Witcher 3 has better characters and sidequests.
The stories are equally shit, though.
>The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a stupendous achievement for CD Projekt Red. This is a studio rich in love for the RPG genre, and it shows. With each consecutive release, their craft has been finer and finer tuned. If Wild Hunt is any indication, the next game from the Polish band of gamers will be something to behold. Most of you are probably already playing Wild Hunt and loving it. If for some reason you’re on the fence, hop off and go to your favorite gaming retailer now. This is not one you want to miss. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt an absolute classic. 9.0
>MMORPG dot com
>You use the same tactics for each one.
By your logic same goes for monsters in Dragon's Dogma. You would know W3 actually has more variation if you played the hunt quests, and I'm saying this as someone who recommended DD over W3 to OP.
Why don't you judge the games you like as harshly as the games you dislike?
Magick Archer explosive arrow to the face. Deals well with everything I've met so far, outside of that god damn dragon outside of the shadow keep, and those rock golems. God damn those. Does anything deal decent damage to them? I just climb them and pray they don't shake me off as I stab them. And god help me if the last plate is on their hand or something. Fuck.
Oh god I get flashback from all those griffon reskins with maybe one more attack. It doesn't help that bosses have little variation in their attacks when it comes to actual gameplay.
its just lovely how you people tend to become dependent on critics and reviews for your precious games when they are being called out for what they are.
Not nearly as perfect as the review scores claim.
The Witcher 3 has light attack, heavy attack, cleave and spin shit not counting in consumables like petards which DD has plenty of. You can also switch weapons mid fight and your pawns also have their own skills.
i've been playing Dragon's Dogma for the first time. The combat is fucking great, it's way better than Witcher's combat imo.
Other than that though Witcher is better in every way.
Not really. A lot of places have unique items, and if you aren't some fucking retard who got a mod to show you the locations of all the school gear you usually find pieces before buying the maps for it.
There's tons of loot that isn't just randomly generated.
But yes, there are many locations with random loot, but i don't see why that is a bad thing at all. Better than no loot at all.
I've played the entire game top to bottom, there isn't a lot of variety.
Even going by logic Dragon's Dogma has twice the variety, and that's not even taking into consideration all the other combat options that Witcher 3 can't even hold a candle to. Not even mentioning how you can completely trivialize the entire game just by going Griffin school or whatever and spamming signs all day.
The sad thing is, W3 actually does have a whole lot of different enemy types (though I'm not denying there's a lot of reskinning) but the problem is that the game is incredibly stream lined, so all those extra features certain enemies have (like the manipulation of the Fiend) don't really interest you that much. Just recently I found out you can permanently disable this ability by throwing a samum into the Fiends' third eye, but it literally doesn't matter anyway because everything is still so damn easy (was playing on the hardest difficulty all the time).
I did have a problem with the loot system. Mainly most of teh stuff you pick up is trash that you have to carry back to town to sell, maybe 1 in 30 chest had something better then the crafter or school gear.
it also has 5 signs. 2 dodge types.
some potions actually do something interesting and cant be spammed. blizzard give you slow mo after a kill and can be stacked. golden oriole give immunity to poison for thoes who cant be bothered... also the use of bombs and crossbows are intuitive.
The point isnt the amount of shit the game give you. The point is witcher let you use everything you earn while dd make it "balance" by doing the opposite, like d3.
Humans (zombies act the same but slower), monstrous humanoid (gobs act the exact same as humans so actually this wouldn't warrant an extra mention), big things you can climb (don't even try to argue that there's much difference in a cyclops and a griffon, you climb them, that's it).
Oh boy, DD sure is more varied.
>it also has 5 signs
Quen that makes the gameplay simpler and is casual mode and the rest that's mostly useless for a swordsman.
>also the use of bombs and crossbows are intuitive.
Bombs maybe, but Dragon Dogma has actual ranged combat.
>The point isnt the amount of shit the game give you. The point is witcher let you use everything you earn while dd make it "balance" by doing the opposite, like d3.
Skill limit is really annoying in DD because if you want to play Assassin you have 3 sword skills, 3 step combo attack, 5 step combo attack that shares step one with the previous one, 2 step heavy attack string, jumping light and heavy attack. Then similar thing with daggers.
Then you get 3 skills for either bow with normal shooting move or 3 skills for shield which you can all switch mid battle, and in addition shield has deflect mechanic by itself. There is also climbing and sprinting in combat, and grappling. Daggers get dodge roll. Rest of weapons have some dodge type skill or counter type skill.
Meanwhile Swordsman Geralt will mostly use Quen, and 4 types of sword attacks + petards. I never found potions to be too interesting. They mostly just let you deal more damage or immunity to something or are just hp pots. Not to say that Sign using is pretty meh compared to DD's magic. And there is Guard/Riposte and two types of dodges.
I am really annoyed by how little skill slots there are in DD but TW3 wasn't much better. It was actually worse.
Witcher 3 is a better game in every way, except for the actual combat which is more inventive and has more variety in DD.
But it will never make you feel like the W3 did, when I finished this game I felt empty because it was such an amazing long adventure, games don't feel like that anymore
You should purchase The Witcher 3. It won the Geoff Keighley award show.
dd magic is really boring unles you go solo. which make it useless or cheesy early game depend on the situation and your loadout.
i dont find witcher amazing either but i feel much more unrestrictive. dont pretend you cant win dd by kiting, jumping, rolling (which you cant get at the levels when it's matter) and spamming one type of attack over and over again.
Witcher can also be modded to be much better. DD cant.
Not everyone is shilling anon, lots of games make you feel that way especially lenghty games. A good design decision is that they actually remind you of all the stuff you did during the game, like W3 or DA :O does
no. tw2 has a recap after you pass the first area in tw3. tw1's story is irrelevant for the most part.
tw1 has really annoying combat and GoT season 5 level story but best atmosphere and alchemy.
tw2 is worse everything and best main plot and grafix.
I thought you said you wanted to skip them?
The Wild Hunt is actually the last boss you fight in W1 and he's in all these different side quests, so anyone who says the games aren't connected they are lying.
But W1 is a hard game to get into, it's like trying to get modern console audiences into NWN or Morrowind, so play W3 and if you like the characters and world it will give you more willpowr to get into W1.
W1 is really an amazing game, I don't think there was anything quite like it
I would suggest picking up the entire Witcher trilogy from GOG. As a Game of Thrones fanatic I thought it was awesome experiences. It was literally like I was playing my favorite tv show!
>dd magic is really boring unles you go solo. which make it useless or cheesy early game depend on the situation and your loadout.
Depends on the kind of magic but most people praise it.
>i dont find witcher amazing either but i feel much more unrestrictive. dont pretend you cant win dd by kiting, jumping, rolling (which you cant get at the levels when it's matter) and spamming one type of attack over and over again.
You can do the same and more with TW3. And the hard stuff can't be cheesed this way most often.
>Witcher can also be modded to be much better. DD cant.
I can't find any good mods to TW3. All I see is some combat overhauls that just make the combat into what neckbeards think is realistic and give stamina costs out of the ass to everything. I also hope someone gonna make that more skills mode for DD. TW3 took some time until mod tools released.
climb on it
slash its face
set it on fire
do Helm Splitter
Stun it with lightning magic
Kill it comets summoned from space
Kill with a Tornado summoned from nothing
set it on fire with your body which is also on fire
...oh wait you can only do that in Dragon's Dogma my bad.
Is that so? Well guess I'm going to play DD after W3.
DS actually has way tighter timing on the roll and better hitboxes. Even DS2. Enemies also have more variety in its attack so you can't always roll the same way. DS2 also has parrying with pretty strict timing depending on what you use, guarding with weapon or shield, varied weapons and more intuitive dodge mechanics (no more of that no iframes on dodge because you canceled tiny bit of move recovery with it of TW3).
giving stamina cost to everything is actually good design, because all the wholeassed ovehauls remove defense and vitality buff based on level differences as well as level requirements for items.
The downside is any patches or dlcs will break it.
DD wont have mod tools, none of the japanese games do. The best people can do is alter some stats, maybe spawn rates and that's it. Maybe touch on the ui a little.
Witcher 3, the combat in Dragon's Dogma is better but it can get repetitive after a while. Witcher 3's combat isn't the best but at least the quests and world can keep you entertained.
holy fuck I thought I was the only one who knew about this glitch
I never said the gameplay was shit, I said the combat in Dragon's Dogma was better but can repetitive after a while. The quests in Dragon's Dogma are your average MMO quests; go to this place, kill X amount of monsters and get your reward. I'm just saying that combat isn't the only form of gameplay, world exploration is also gameplay and The Witcher 3 does that better.
>The quests in Dragon's Dogma are your average MMO quests; go to this place, kill X amount of monsters
Are you a legit retard who only does the notice board quests? If anything, it's Witcher quests that are so fucking brain dead CDPR added a cheat vision button so you could halfass your way through the game as you updated your Facebook.
Confirmed for literally never playing Dragon's Dogma past the notice board quests.
>deciphering this text
>trials and tribulations
>salomet's grimoire (which actually comes into play later)
>it all comes tumbling down: featuring mercedes
Pretty much this.
I love both of them for different reasons.
Dragon's Dogma feels like an adventure, and you'll have to just go on treks just to explore to get the most experience.
Witcher 3 (if you actually played the games before it) is seriously exactly what you wanted from the Witcher since it's inception. It's beyond amazing, but the combat is lackluster. I still suggest playing it because the writing is beyond god tier.
