The problem isn't that there is a minimap, but how the dotted line draws away all your attention from anything else.

 

Luckily I'm not the only one with that issue:

Opus Magnum.

 

This game is truly a magnum opus.

It takes a bit of fiddling to get everything set up the way I like it, but considering time spent with the game, it was well worth the effort. It essentially lets you disable entire UI for majority of the game, with it only appearing contextually (health and stamina when you draw your sword, that kind of stuff.) It also adds "in-world" quest markers which you can only have active when using Witcher sense - in other words, they're only ever present when you go out of your way to see them, massively migitating the whole "watching the mini-map" thing.

 

Alternatively, in the vanilla game, you can actually only disable the dotted line while keeping markers displayed - so you have a general idea of where you're going, but you still need to consult map and your surroundings to get there.

I'm beginning to feel like I'm never going to play another game besides FFXV again, ever. I need help. :disguise:

 

I mean, I try sometimes, but then I go right back to XV. Haven't been this game-single-minded since when played DK1/Diablo1/Caeser3 for literally years. I can replay the 1st 2/3 of XV over and over and over whenever I want a gaming fix between TV/film and real-life, never gets old.

 

...maybe a year after Square finally stops updating it and then another year for PC version and any modding shenanigans (if that pans out). Think Diablo4 or Borderlands 3 will be out by then? ....
