Which do you think is the better game?
I only played the original witcher, but I didn't like it much, so I would go with skyrim
I am currently playing them both.
My thoughts so far are that:
They are both very role playing,
both feel semi realistic
Advantages of Witcher 2:
Feel more focused apon the player,
Decisions affect storyline more,
The characters are more recognisable
Advantages of Skyrim:
Betters graphics, looks more realistic
Bigger maps, more discovery
Long game (feels kinda endless - with the feeling of minimal progress)
Alot of skills and customizability,
Disadvantages of Witcher 2:
Graphics arent quite as good, and kinda puts off the believability at times due to arms being incorrectly placed and going through walls etc
Disadvantages of Skyrim:
Feels way too long, going to find quests often takes approx 5-10 minutes just to travel there
Overall they are both very fun games imo.
I personally prefer Witcher 2 due to the faster pace of the game, and the more severe feeling of progress.
When I play skyrim the graphics are kinda mindblowing and the physics and choices are amazing, but the game feels more like its for those Oblivion players and people can get bored fairly quickly.
Both are fairly decent.
Witcher 2 has a more dynamic storyline than Skyrim, due to the speed of the story and gameplay.
while this is true, I enjoy "exploring" the world, it's not like you are just running in a straight line for that amount of time
Correct. You are trying to clime a mountain which (has amazing grahics) is irregular and can take many moments to find a way onto or above.
Can be rather irritating after awhile.
But don't get me wrong, I think it is well done. Just partially frustrating.
Skyrim Mountains > Oblivion mountaints
they drastically increased the angle at which you can walk (like 80*) ok thats an exageration, but its not that bad and there is always a route to get to the destination, also Skyrim is VERY moddable and i believe the CK came out (Creation Kit, World editor for skyrim)
I cant specculate on Witcher 2 as i have never played it, but i know for sure skyrim is worth the 60$, last month when i went MIA for like 3 weeks straight its because i was in White Run 24/7, if you get the game, you will understand that reference quickly
Well, to be honest I enjoyed playing Witcher 2 more than Skyrim, but that's probably because I had already played Oblivion. If I had not played Oblivion before, I would probably have enjoyed Skyrim more. I got the feeling that whatever I did in Skyrim I had done in Oblivion, it didn't feel like I was playing a new game for the first time. But Witcher 2 felt new and fresh, which is why I must say I did enjoy it more.
I tried to play Witcher 2, but I could never play it due to technical issues so... can't say right there. It's also the only game I had issues with so yeah, I'm kind of wondering why.
Skyrim is definitely awesome though.
I'm pretty sure witcher requires a lot more from your computer than skyrim. then again, witcher looks prettier too.
Overall the votes are 1/4/1 - with Skyrim being the clear winner.
Good to know.
Now if only I could cure Vampirism... :/
have you tried using that one spell that shows you the path to your current quest? that can help a lot if you need to approach it from a different direction or are way off
