[Game] The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Witcher 3The Witcher 3 is still an amazing RPG, but its open world aspect dilutes the potent experience that was Witcher 2, and limits the gravity of your choices until you reach the end of the game, ultimately delivering a much longer but also less memorable journey.

The game also made my computer blow up, literally. Make sure to cool your system before trying to play this monster or you might share my fate. 😀

Positive: Negative:
Beautiful, carefully designed visuals The main story is, in the core, very formulaic and predictable
Amazing soundtrack inspired by Eastern European folk music A dumb part in the ending undermines the whole conflict
Interesting world somewhat inspired by the Eastern European culture Not as many significant choices as in the previous games
Beautifully written, poignant dialogue The open world is full of random encounters and treasure which just needlessly bloat the game and feel like a chore
Profound, mature, interesting characters
Simplistic battle mechanics are easy to exploit
Most side-quests lead to interesting mini-stories
Needlessly complicated crafting
Some cool choices that affect the world at the end of the game
Some awkward design issues (getting stuck on rocks, lighting damn candles all the time)
