I agree as well, though I have only read a sample of Erikson. I got through about the first hundred pages of Gardens of the Moon and decided that while I didn't hate it, I was not in the mood for it currently. I plan on going back, but the writing style that I noticed of Erikson's is completely different than Abercrombie's.
I think the difference is that Joe's style is much more personal. I felt like I knew Logen and Glokta and Dogman, etc. I never felt like I knew Quick Ben and cast. Makes the books much more emotional for me.
