my meager 90 minutes with what is shaping up to be the marquee RPG of the next-gen console era.
The level of care and detail in the game world is astounding.
I cannot say with absolute certainty The Witcher 3 has the best AI characters of any RPG but I can say there are no titles that come to mind as being any better.

They didn’t just stand there in default poses, either. The hunched over and blew into their hands to warm them. They shifted back and forth on each leg. They looked alive.
