I enjoyed New Vegas much more. I didn't like Dark Souls because it was too difficult for me, but many other people love the game.

I also enjoyed Fallout: New Vegas more, although I know that if you like Dark Souls you'll love it and probably get more playtime out of it. I prefer the more narrative focused F:NV.

You can also mod F:NV a lot but I never really got into it - I did two playthroughs and I felt a bit burned out but I know there are mods that alter the games to various extents that can add a lot of replay value.

Dark Souls, unless you don't like hard games
... even on Earth Mode.

Don't they both go down <$10 fairly often...

Either way I consider New Vegas to be the best of the recent Fallout games and Dark Souls 1 to be the best Dark Souls. Can't go wrong with either.

Right now, do you feel like playing a Bethesda RPG, but with Obsidian writing and decision making, or a slower paced action RPG where you'll die a lot but be rewarded for scouring every nook and cranny of the world that slaughters you?

New Vegas has more replayability IMO, plus mods.
Console bug testing has been outsourced to gamers now. For $60 you too can become a game tester.

They're both very different, but you can't go wrong with either. I'd say Dark Souls is by far the better game of the two, though if you're looking for value over quality New Vegas will give you plenty to do, even without mods.

Both, get both. I played both with a AMD APU laptop and these are great and fun games. Fallout NV is way longer than Dark Souls and in my opinion is the best modern Fallout.
