  • I kind of finished pretty fast even having some sleep-depraving sessions of countless hours up until the morning sun came up when it came out. I let it rest after my initial playthrough because that is how I do things normally (and because MGSV). But I'll probably replay the game some time soon. What I really have to say is that the game starts pretty slow. Until I was out of White Orchard I kind of didn't really feel like the game properly started. And to be honest I liked Velen/Novigrad a lot more than White Orchard. Skellige was somewhere in-between (I definitely loved the main Island). The storyline really picks up after you're out of the starting area WO (White Orchard), but it still goes moderately. It really, really picks up when you get into Novigrad (around lvl 10 - 15 depending how you level).

    As for the side quests. Loved a lot of them. 1 or 2 were a little boring, but the Witcher contracts were always awesome. Like in the previous games, I preferred Witcher work a lot to "standard quests". With "standard quests" I mean everything that does not necessarily fall into Witcher jurisdiction.

    Anyway, still love the game. Got the CE for extra money from the UK (cost me extra, but I didn't care), and I'm glad I did. Still got the statue on my desk. One of the swords (the one on the back) broke, but I'll fix it in time and otherwise it's awesome. I trusted CDPR and they did not disappoint me.

    My advise would be, soak it in, do your quests, enjoy the landscape, music, story. And if you don't like the combat play on the easier difficulties. And when it gets "too much" for you then stop and make a pause. No shame in that. Sometimes it overwhelms you or you're not in the right mindset, happens to me all the time in all sorts of games. Take your time, enjoy it.

    • I finished main story 2 times and 1st expansion one time. Now, I'm on my third run and I just can't get enough of this game. Recently I finished ROTR, played some other games, but Witcher 3 spoiled me in every way, and these other games are not fun enough. W3 have everything, graphics, sound, world, story, characters, quests.. Truly a masterpiece!

      • Whatever modern game I play, I kinda feel it's somewhat not polished enough, and go back to playing Witcher 3. It's a curse at this point The only other games I can play right now are either strategy, or CRPG (White March Part 2) games, which are completely different genres. If a game is in action, or action RPG genres, I just can't play them right now... I get incredibly bored. So yeah, that's what keeps me playing.

          Tbh I'm kind of burned out on pure action or action RPGs at the moment. I was never SUPER big on them, but atm I can't play any of them (except TW3). But I hope when Deus Ex: Mankind Divided comes around that I'll be up for it again. Despite some minor gripes (lacking depth in RPG systems compared to Deus Ex (1) and when it came to augmentations) I really loved Human Revolution.

          Non the less, I know TW will always have a special place in my heart. The game isn't perfect. But it is damn well polished, has hundreds of hours of content for a single playthrough alone, has a unique and beautiful world, great (not fetch-questy) side-quests, a mostly solid main storyline and I read the books, so there is that.....

              Same here, whenever I start feeling that I'm done with the game a new and exciting mod comes out which refuels my fire.

              • ATM it's just to be in the world that's keeping me going, but I have now totally exhausted all my options. I have a good 800+ hours clocked up on this game, that includes 7 playthroughs comprising of taking all good decisions then bad decisions/Trophey hunting/all romance options. Also attempted to get a perfect game by doing every quest with no red text lines (I only have 2 red text lines, and believe me there is no way around them) and 2 new game+ (included in that 7)

                I am now patiently waiting for the next exp pack, and I have been preparing a save for it for the last few weeks. Started of a new game (story and sword) did everything including all quests, then at about level 25 changed direction to HOS, then went back into the main quest line. Finished that last week and now I'm just doing a map cleanup (yes the Skellige smugglers cashes) So I'm sitting at level 42 ATM running around killing random groups of nekkers/wolves etc.

                  • The formula keeps me coming back. Certain games just have a "thing" that gels really well. This is one of them, for me. I also do the same thing with Jagged Alliance 2, Dawn of War Dark Crusade, Kingdoms of Amalur, and CoD Modern Warfare.
                    People always ask me, "What's in the box?" I get the question a lot. "Come on -- what's in the box!?" I won't tell them...but I'll tell you. Go on.
                    You can see what's IN THE BOX!!!

                        • I can't help it. Im thinking about buying the whole GOTY Edition for my PS4 after playing 280+ hours (2 playthroughs and the last one with both DLC). I just want to relive the whole experience.

                          Should I go for it? Since I can play it on a bigger TV with good colours but without mods for sure!

                          • I just bought PS4 pro on December. I'm tempted to play Witcher 3 again with it, but maybe I should wait a bit longer until I can also get a new television. Oooor I'm just going to finish my current WIP playthrough with the old television, and then play it yet again if I ever buy that new one

                            I'm still not done with the game after 6 playthroughs. There is always one more playthrough coming up... Unfortunately I lack of time and there has been other games that I also wanted to play, so Witcher has been on hold for a while. But yeah, I'm definitely going to play it again. Just few days ago I played Witcher Adventure Game and only hearing that music in there made me want to play Witcher 3 again. I really miss that game. After all this time it's difficult to give any specific reasons why I love that game so much, or should I say that there are so many reasons that it's impossible to list everything... But every time when I launch the game it feels like coming home, or meeting a very dear old friend.

                            Yes, Geralt, we are definitely going to meet again.

                            • Best game I've ever played. They do such a nice job developing characters and that's what I think stands out to me the most. The world is just so real along with the characters. Love that it's an adult game that has consequences of your decisions whether it's whether you decide to help a guy on the side of the road, or whether you choose to reject Yennefer in favor of Triss, adult quests with political impacts, sex, unfiltered violence, etc. It just gives everything a very real feel to it.
