Maybe, or maybe I'm not a big fan of the implementation as it exists in Dark Souls.
Open systems tend to feel too generic - and these games are far from alone in this. Games like Morrowind and Oblivion are even more generic because of the TES system, for instance.
One of the reasons I love D&D 3.0/3.5 so much - is that it's a great hybrid. It's a class system with all the flavor of the classes - but it's also very open, so you can actually combine classes in a flexible way.
That's the kind of system I prefer.
