No other RPG game(besides the Souls games) has been able to achieve a balance of difficulty minus the monotony that is most RPG combat in games

As in none what so ever?

The problem I personally struggle with when answering questions like this is that RPGs come in so many forms, and I firmly believe lots of mechanic X or feature Y does not make a game a "real" RPG or a better one. So - here's the thing - I've played many many games with more extensive RPG elements. From that perspective, you could call TW3 shallow or whatever. And yet, having more inventory slots or stats didn't make them better GAMES (necessarily). I didn't necessarily enjoy them more or get drawn into the world more.

Take as an example of some of the best RPGs I have ever played: TW3, Chrono Trigger, Planescape: Torment. Not one of these games is remotely like the other, and they each have much more of __ than the other two. I know there are diehard purists out there that would look at such a list and call one a "real" RPG and the other two not - but I think they're splitting hairs for the sake of being anal. 3 fantastic games, and I'd be hard pressed to list a bunch of better RPG experiences than TW3, even if I can name plenty with more "real totes legit RPG elements"

For many people there's a lot. For me, there isn't, maybe there won't be even one, not even Cyberpunk 2077 I think, not to mention later, there will be nostalgia, so it's locked for me.

The only WRPG I'd take over it is KOTOR, but that's due to a combination of nostalgia, and that I like sci-fi and Star Wars over fantasy.

JRPG wise, I'd take Panzer Dragoon Saga, Chrono Trigger, and Skies of Arcadia over it.

Basically, I think the Witcher III is a fantastic game all around.

Witcher's an Action RPG. Almost all modern shooters have as much RPG elements as the Witcher.

So bloody many games are better, too many to list. But i will say what let W3 down: Too much of the open world was pointless covered with crappy question marks, no balance between side missions and main campaign (basically the games was 70% contracts), too much repetition and even after countless patches it is still a buggy mess.

Witcher 3, Divinity Original sin 1 & 2, Skyrim and maybe Crysis 1 & warhead.

I personally think Skyrim SE is better than Withcer 3. Stealth is common sense which Withcer 3 misses and you will find it in Skyrim if you like Stealth/Bow combo.

I enjoyed Xenoblade Chronicles X, Xenogears, Phantasy Star III, and IV more. But that is mainly because I am REALLY into the whole futuristic setting and of course Mechs/Tech.

Persona 5. But it is a very different kind of RPG.

Oblivion is more like Witcher 3 and perhaps the better game.

KOTOR series

A lot of the Obsidian games, old and new; Pillars of Eternity 1/2, Fallout: New Vegas.

Larian made Divinity: Original Sin 1/2, those are probably two of the best RPG's of all time.

Skyrim does a few things better than The Witcher 3, but not everything.

If we are going way back, I'd say Baldurs Gate, Planescape, Fallout 2, and so on are great RPG's. I'll even throw in Icewind Dale and Neverwinter Nights.

A lot of Bioware games are better RPG's, too.

Now, if you meant better game, well, there aren't many games in recent memory that are as good a game as The Witcher 3 is.
