Well first off they still have 6 months left. You say animations suck? Where? Its obvious you haven`t read the books nor cared what other characters in the previous games said about witchers (I`m safely assuming as you mentioned playing other games). Here is tl;dr for you they are meant to be super-duper-ultra-turbo fast compared to usual human beings so it`s fully lore-accurate and to me very fun-looking and resoponsive (but thats subjective). And of course they will casualize the potion system becasue noone ever needed to use potions in older instalments. For example I have beaten dark mode using like 3 swallows, 1 mangusta and a copule of cats and thats about it therefore I see that and a necesery evil to encourage players. You say people comapare this to a game that has already been released Skyrim. Let me ask you a question: What other open world RPG has come out in the previous years that would be posible to compare TW 3 with? (by that I mean the key features: open world and RPG). Anyhow what do you want the gameplay to be like? Like CoD point and click games - wow so much fun and action WOW??? Well since I typed all of this I guess I`m just gonna post it. Even though I will probably be ashamed of letting myself getting trolled. YES you are a troll a guy who just made an account and accused some product which is 6 months away from release of being trash while you have no real evindence.Ow, ow, a potato rubbish nitpicker. What you found here, my insignificant fault finding friend - is "many" of mistakes that "many" humans make, when typing or speaking. On serious note: Everyone just pile your excuses; imagine things. Potion system will punish you? Nay, mate. Famous combo - drink swallow + whatever you need. There are 27 animations, but they don't make a good appeal, swamp combat video looks bad with it's 27 animations. Dunno why everyone needs to state, that there are "n" amount of animations every time when they speak. Don't forget how much it's bigger than previous Tw games, and how much bigger than rubbish skyrim. Yeah, and it's a crowning ass achievement of the open arse world genre. Don't care much about Heralt, it's the world that builds feelings, and of course I'll get my doubts when I see fancy trailers, but when they show gameplay - boring rubbish. It's normal to doubt a product you want to buy, if some parts of the content are not that good.
'Course, a troll, everyone who doesn't like something everyone (a herd) else likes is a troll.
