I loved Dragon's Dogma and found Skyrim to be decent (a prime example of developer laziness) but I'm not sure whether DkS PTD is worth buying or not. Judging by the gameplay videos I've seen so far, graphics look downright terrible (could someone justify this please?) and the game seems just unfair unlike some other games where difficulty means smarter AI or more realism like one-shot bullet kills. I also think the game is too dark and bleak and coupled with bad graphics, weird animations and unfair gameplay, it just seems like some random dude decided to make a game but I've heard only good things about this game so I'm considering it. Also, I don't know whether I like difficult games or not but I thought playing Lords of Shadow on Paladin difficulty wasn't tough enough.
If I don't buy Dks, I can go with Far Cry 3 but I could get also FC3 later and get DS now. I can also get KOA Reckoning instead but I'm not sure about it either because of the unjustifying demo. Can anyone give some advice as what to do now?
