Hahah loving it. I basicly did the same, clinging on to the hope that i would stumble upon something truly amazing. After 8 years, and chucking my cold hard cash at the CE, i sorta had no choice but to strugle on(at the very least im going to milk some hours out of it). Im not saying that i didnt have a single moment of fun, its just more on the negative side than pros atm.Usually, no, but I waited for this game 8 years and wanted to squeeze everything out of it regardless if its a bad game or not and decided not to get a refund because I have some hope left that CDPR will fix the game and add more on top of it that will enhance the experience... So if I made that decision then why not play it and finish the game? The story was engaging enough to at least complete it. And I already stated in my previous post that you quoted why I played it regardless:
I had hopes that the next quest will be good and the next and the next and so on and then had a little hope left that maybe one of the endings will be fine atleast but that did not happened either, so yeah.
So when it comes to me, it wasn't punishement, but rather mindful and hopeful masochism.
Disclaimer : I NEVER pre-order games(They are digital, and will never run out of stock). I usualy wait a couple of months til the game drops in price, and there is enough information out there about it.
But because of my love for The Witcher, and the fact that i resisted the temptation to buy the CE of Wild Hunt. I just went ahead and broke my own rules, just this once.
Lesson learned i guess(hope?).
