Really enjoyed The Witcher 3 but Breath of the Wild gets my vote. Such a fantastic game.

Neither - and I own BotW for my WiiU. It’s a decent game, but not great.

Bloodborne is better than both. There's a reason nobody ever talks about BOTW anymore. Its just another Zelda. Its just another forgettable game from Nintendo. TW3 stomps BOTW like it was an ant.

TW3 combat system is what's keep it from being a masterpiece. It was so bad im worried about CP2077 gunplay.

You need to read the thread title where it says: game of the decade.

What happened here? The Witcher 3 used to win comfortably in those polls but it got slaughtered in the last two. Is BOTW the kind of game people realize is great over time whereas The Witcher 3 is the opposite?

Really it lost? I dunno, I've been seeing a lot of anti-Witcher 3 posts recently on this forum. Could it be it got too popular and now the hate?

Bloodborne - It has great combat with weapons that don't break after only a few hits. Exploration is satisfying and the level design is great. The game is a good challenge without feeling cheap. Better than both options in my opinion.

I couldn't look past the combat in Witcher 3 and while I loved BotW, the weapons constantly breaking was enough to actually annoy me quite a few times.

The answer is obviously Bloodborne but since this is a popularity contest I'm gonna go with Witcher 3 even though I only halfway into witcher 3 and finished BotW. I immensely dislike the ubisoft towers and weapon degradation system in BotW.

If a game has weak gameplay, then it's not going to age very well.

Except several people, and not just online (my younger bro is a huge Zelda fan, but he HATES BOTW) would argue that PLENTY for Breath of the Wild. Every argument I've been in, it's due to the worse weapon rot than pre-Skyrim Bethesda.

Isn’t Bloodborn just another forgettable Souls game with hit-block-dodge-dodge gameplay in the same vein? I’ve never really looked at it as it’s not my type of thing.

From these two BOTW. Cause its fun to play. But my personal game of the decade would go to Portal 2. No other game for me can create an experience like portal 2.

Enjoyed both, BotW takes it easily.

It would be great to have a mix of the technical and narrative ambition from Witcher with the systems and world design of BotW.

there is no block lol. And when it comes to the other Dak/Demon's souls games, only IGN reviewers use shields, people that have trouble playing video games.

It's hilarious how many people worship the Souls games and shit on TW3 combat. As if Demon's Souls is any less clunky. Riiiight. Maybe don't play TW3 at 30FPS and try dodging and parrying like you do in those other games instead of *clicky clicky clicky click IT'S BROKEN* [throws controller]

Anyway,

Storytelling: TW3>>>>>>>>BOTW

Emergent gameplay and physics: BOTW>>>>>>>>>TW3

I love them both, warts and all. Refuse to pick :-P

By the end of BOTW, I felt it ran out of steam. I got tired of fighting the same asshole lizards in every area. BOTW left a legendary first impression on me, but it didn't have staying power.

Witcher 3 gets my pick. Witcher 3 gameplay is worse, but it's not THAT much worse. Witcher 3 combat is a bit clunky but I like the diversity of the combat and how I can quickly mix and match my play styles. I have fun playing the game. I feel like half the people on this board cannot enjoy a game unless the gameplay is perfectly tuned and flawless.

@Juub1990: I think it's pretty similar. TW3 is definitely worse, but it works on very similar principles IMO. I also don't think the Souls games have good combat.

*edit* full disclosure, I only own Demon's Souls. Maybe it's improved?

Got better in DS1, got worse in DS2, better again in DS3 which was much faster paced than the previous souls games. BB is a different animal.

No it isn't similar. The Witcher 3 completely misses a major key concept of dynamic combat; frame data. In TW3, pressing the attack button will have Geralt swing his weapon but one big problem? Geralt doesn't do the same attack every time and some strikes have more ending or startup lag than others. During a combo you don't get to decide whether Geralt will do a pirouette or jump which have wildly different frame data. This gives the combat poor rhythm and makes it floaty as you're not even sure what move Geralt will perform.

Then you have the roll which is a defensive maneuver meant to move away from harm's way but the startup lag is so high, it's just better to back step, making the roll useless.

This is a core problem in the combat. It misses one of the very foundations that Dark Souls and most decent hack-n-slash games nail. The base is weak and from here on out, everything just gets worse from the complete lack of weapons variety to the uselessness of half the skill tree.

Nah, it's nowhere near close to Dark Souls. Just because Souls games are slow and methodical, it doesn't make them clunky.

Zelda has, you know, good gameplay. I'll go with that.
