Hmm, what can I say about the Witcher 3? It started off alright. Ran well on my PC considering the pretty graphics. It was engaging enough for me to be interested but it didn't feel like it was going to be an obsession like Skyrim was.
It's true I was apprehensive of this game because of all the praise it kept getting everywhere. It's a somewhat old game nowadays but there is still no shortage of praise for it online. You mention anything that can be linked to the Witcher 3 and you are sure to find at least one fan singing high praises. You'd think CD Projekt Red bribed them.
With much apprehension I booted up The Witcher 3. Immediately I changed the settings to HIGH with textures on ULTRA. FPS stays in the low 30s rarely drops down to about 26. So I'm in, I haven't played the previous Witcher games but I've been told not to worry about that.
You see that opening paragraph over there^
Yeah that there is what's called a Fib. Now excuse me while I go have a shit with Johnny.
Now to be clear that there thoughts^ were what I had in the First 2 hours of my game. I'm currently at 26 hours or so and I've been resisting the temptation to go off on side quests.
Remember how I told you I was apprehensive about the Witcher 3. I was worried it would be GOOD. I don't have the time for another Skyrim (A game that takes up a good portion of my life). The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt did just that. Those 26 hours are really more like just 2% of the game and it's expansions. There's nothing I can tell you more that countless other more qualified reviewers have already done a long time ago. However I can tell you this,
The game slowly hooked on to me but by this point I didn't really know just how much I loved it, I was so immersed in the game's conflicts that I didn't notice that I was in fact enjoying myself a lot. Then it happened. I finished up the (SPOILER ALERT) Family Matters quest line and I had just rode back to Crow's Perch when I saw the Baron's lifeless body hanging from a tree. He had hanged himself. It wasn't the Baron's suicide that shocked me I kind of saw that coming. My emotional reaction was what shocked me! Anyone who has played this game knows what the Baron has done what he was like but everyone who played this game also knows of his remorse, his plea. I kid you not but I couldn't stand to stay in Valen any longer the mere sight of Crow's Perch and the knowledge that the Baron Strenger wouldn't be there was too much for me!(END SPO-AARGH eff it THERE ARE SPOILERS EVEYWHERE!)
Another very heartwrenching moment was Priscilla's song in the Kingfisher but then again that didn't surprise me the posters did say it was "Guaranteed to tug at every Heartstring"
I'm rambling so much and I've barely touched on Geralt or Yennefer or Triss or Zoltan or- You get the point. This game has surprised me by genuinely being a genre defining nay genre REWRITING game.
