I didn't enjoy it because it is Twitcher 3 the sequel to two crappy games. And, no, I did not play it. I do not need to. A craps equal in a  crap series is gonna be crap no matter how many B00BIES you show off.

They didn't even show Ciri's b00bies. Way too much testosterone drain after TW1.

DA3. It is not great - in fact I couldn't finish it. But, I'd take that over a game like is beyond crap in a crap series that has only one  worthy aspect it - B00BIES. Sorry Twitcher fans, but that crap is so awful that even the worse of BIO is better. :)

 

Volo are you sure you played the English version of W3? You probably played the Polish version and didn't understand the dialogue and that's why you didn't  enjoy it?

Yeah because we all know GOA never judges games until he plays them... the question is how does he decide which games to play before he plays them. Hmmmmmmmm..........

The Witcher 3 makes Disney Age: Abomination look like a joke; a rather hilarious one, at that.

I have played and finished both.

 

Oh sure, Disney Age has character customization. The option of playing as who you want. But do you really?

It's funny what aesthetic illusion can achieve; the sad matter is, no matter what race, class and gender you play, it is essentially the same all the way through the game. Add to that the "inquisitor" is the most boring, lame protagonist ever invented. Even the cliche'd testosterone fuelled Duke Nukem had a better personality.

 

The point being, they may as well have forced players into a set, pre-made protagonist - at least that would have been interesting. I had no issue whatsoever playing as Geralt, and over time had grown to like him as a person. I found his cynical sense of humour hilarious.

 

It doesn't stop there.

 

Disney Age's "open world" was ridiculous. If you are going to take another company's trademark game tactic (hello Bethesda) you have to beat them at their own game. Sure, the hinterlands looked pretty. That's fair enough. But what's the point in having an aesthetically pleasing world with nothing to do in it? The world is empty, the quests boring and very close to Guild Wars 2 (yes, I went there. MMO, though I must say Guild Wars 2 quests were actually more fun.) What's the objective? You run around with a party of characters, who talk (if you're lucky enough not to be cursed with the infamous 'banter bug' that is) gather some elfroot, bending over for a millenium to pick said elfroot up. Meanwhile, a pack of bears, wolves, templars, apostate mages come along and decide to obliterate you. But hey, it's fine, got to get this elfroot. Gotta catch 'em all.

 

The worlds were lifeless, empty. There is more energy and atmosphere in an old folk's home.

 

The Witcher 3's open world is full of life, detail and is truly beautiful. It's just a damn shame that only Skellige and Velen could be explored, when there are so many other regions according to the lore. There is an abundance of engaging - and fun - quests to do, one could even say too much. The addition of 'mini-games' such as Gwent, fist fighting and horse racing competitions were also very rewarding, when one just wanted to chill out from how overwhelming the quests actually were.

 

 

Storytelling; many people say that both Disney Age and the Witcher failed here. But I disagree. The whole time I played Disney Age I felt nothing but boredom. When I finally defeated Corypheus, I just blinked at my screen and said to myself, "Huh? That's it?"

In regard to the final battle of TW3 - it wasn't all that exciting either, and the ending had room for improvement (or rather the sequence of the ending) but there was much panic and worry. However, all through the game (talking about TW3 now) I was enthralled, hooked and wanted more, even if I knew that through every single act I would be no closer to finding Ciri, and expected dead ends until a certain point.

 

I won't even touch on 'romance' because I find it irrelevant and a stain on the BioWare company in general. To clarify, I am referring the fanbase and their obsessions with it, and suspect that focus on trivial matters like these is what has destroyed the game.

Needless to say, I couldn't actually give two stuffs about the romance content in TW3. I was much too preoccupied with the rest of the game. But one has to wonder if it's a good thing or a bad thing, if romance is such a big deal for BioWare. Would their games be as successful without it?

 

A question for another day.

Conclusion: both games are lowest-common-denominator crap, but Witcher 3 conned more people into thinking it was high art.

Everyone knows Science Fiction is really cool. You know what PoE really needs? Spaceships! There isn't any game that wouldn't be improved by a space combat minigame. Adding one to PoE would send sales skyrocketing, and ensure the game was remembered for all time!!!!!

I love it when people think that making up cute names for games somehow strengthens their points, and how hating a game - but playing it to the end - somehow makes their hate more legit.

 

Generally speaking, I advise if you hate a game - stop playing it. 

 

(That said, I've not played Witcher 3 and probably won't ever play it having played none of the serious and finding myself uninterested in it from what I've seen here).

Playing it all, even if you hate it, does add some legitimacy as you theoretically saw all the game had to offer. So it won't be a case of hating the intro chapter but missing out on the awesome second act, or something along those lines. But generally it is good policy to quit a game once you reach that level of distaste.

Eh, some people simply want to get their money's worth.  If they paid for it, might as well finish it.

 

Mind you, I've never outright hated a game, so I've never felt the need to throw my hands up and say, "Eff it!" midway through.  At worst, I've felt indifferent towards games.  But I've never actually hated one.

Some people need to put a bit more value on their time.  It's one thing to sit through the last hour of a movie, it's another thing to finish up a 50+ hour video game.  How many hours were spent in misery?  Say we round up and call it a 60 hour game, and we spent $60 on it.  That means you spent a dollar an hour.  So once the game has become a chore, you are basically grinding to get that last dollar per hour out of a bad game. 

 

Throwing extra time at a bad investment is never a good idea.

People also overstate their dislike of a game, or at least are often perceived to have an high level than is actually the case. So the game might have been boring or non-fun in sum, but not so much to make it akin to misery. Also the game might have had some good parts. Heh, that was sort of like me in POE, just wanted it over with towards the end (no way I was getting a $1/hr rate for the money I sunk into it, though)

They have enough fantasy kingdoms and fantasy objects they could probably do a pretty solid high fantasy story.  Make Chernabog the main villain somewhere in it, and I'd be for it.

A friend gifted me Dark Souls 2 and its (then) $40's worth of DLC on Steam...I completed the game even though I knew I hated it almost immediately. Sometimes, you just feel compelled to finish things you don't like...:p

Disney Infinity kind of works like that, although it isn't as good as I would like.  It's actually a bit too complicated, Skylanders is a lot easier to jump into and explore.

Yeah one of the big faults of Infinity (IMO) is they don't have a cool generic world for the Toy Box characters and making one with any depth seems to always be more problematic than you think it should be.

disney has the movie rights to gaiman's the graveyard book.  the man Jacks are a fantastic adversary that would be ideal game fodder.  not sure what kinda digital game rights disney gots for gaiman's work.  

 

am guessing that disney has rights to the edgar rice burrogh's john carter of mars stuff.  am fully aware that the movie were a monumental flop from disney's pov, but the setting is fantastic for a crpg.  got a variety o' weird races and a combination o' swords, ray guns and super-science that is already everything monte-cook's numenera hope's to be.

 

disney could do much that would appeal to Gromnir, but am doubting they do.  disney already stated that they is more interested in the mobile apps end o' the gaming spectrum.  

 

HA! Good Fun!

The game has  so  much social justice political correctness that it feels like a sanitized bad joke.  I know Canadians are a bunch of overly politically correct social justice lemmings, but Dragon Age: Inquisition feels... too much.

I'm pretty sure there are also lesbians in TW3, dude.

I played The Witcher and didn't like it at all. Never finished it. I played The Witcher 2 and I got pretty far (maybe even finished, not sure), but I didn't really like that either. Except for the graphics.

 

The Witcher 3, however.. It's not at all like the previous chapters in the series. It's still the same world and the same main character, but the storytelling, quest design and game world have evolved hugely. It's a better game in every aspect and it's actually quite intriguing to see how fast CD Project Red are growing as developers.

 

The weird thing is that despite the technical marvel and artistic grandeur, I'm still the most impressed by the writing. I dislike Bioware products with a passion because of their "kiosklitteratur", "tantporr" writing (not sure how to translate that, but kiosklitteratur is cheap books written with the distinct purpose of appealing to as many people as possible, tantporr is.. erotica written for older, prudish women and Bruce). The Witcher 3 feels like real writing where someone has put thought into the story, the characters, the dialogue and the general structure. They haven't tried to please everyone and some of the stuff you encounter is annoying, disturbing and frustrating. Just like it should be! Also, the white knights of the forum keeps bleating on about how nudity is not maturity. Well, I say it is, but not for the obvious reason (boobs). It's mature in the way that CD Project Red doesn't give a **** what you, the prude american audience or anyone else thinks. They've written the story and characters they wanted, regardless of current political trends. To me, that's a sign of maturity.

 

I usually hate games where you're forced to have companions because they're so bad as to be distracting (all Bioware games). In The Witcher 3 I look forward to interacting with some of the characters! For me that is the highest accolade I can give to writing in a game.

 

Tl;dr: Buy The Witcher 3. It's good.

Bull. It's there because sex sells.

 

Maturity is when choosing between sex and watching a Doctor Who rerun is a difficult decision.

 

BTW, I'm not American.

 

Oh, and "kiosklitteratur" would translate as "pulp fiction", "penny dreadful" or "yellowback"; "tantporr" would be "mommy-porn".
