Yup, know exactly what you mean. Started with Witcher 1 and thought "That's a game" So 2 was quickly consumed, but had no idea how great 3 would be. Still playing. Though I can't be bothered with the Death March mode. To frantic for my taste.'
Can't really see how you can finish the game though. There are so many ways to do a play through. This one I don't always try to get the best gear and never rush Roach unless it's a race. Ye sure the beasties get me a bit more often, but it's a different kinds fun.
