The Witcher 3 is a lot of what Darksiders 2 wanted to be. (The Witcher 3 is a lot of what many games want to be.) Well, that is only half true. Darksiders 2 never wanted the same grounded combat. It always wanted to be an over the top action game that featured Diablo-style loot.
However, Darksiders 2's open world never came close to resembling the scope or the amount of quality content that is seen in The Witcher 3. The Witcher 3 also has more storytelling punch in its pinky (assuming it has pinkies) than Darksiders 2 has in all of its being.
