I played The Witcher 2 first. The Witcher 2 is a fantastic game, full of political intrigue, tight combat, and enough moral gray areas to satisfy the gothiest of goths or the fenciest of fence-sitters. The setting was a fresh step away from the usual dragons and dungeons, brought to life by beautiful visuals of countrysides, crypts, and city-scapes. And then I played The Witcher.
Fair story, boring combat, wooden characters, blah blah blah. Playing this game has become a real debate for me. If you've noticed, my backlog of games is extensive, and I aim to finish the games I have before buying any (read: many) new ones. But is it alright to buy games and never play them? Games are meant to be enjoyed, and The Witcher has become my second job. "I'll log an hour in tonight, but I can play Heartstone after that." On the other hand, when should I stop wasting money on games that I'll never complete. Stupid catch-22. Anyways,
Try this one out if...
- you like real choice in your drama
- you need an R-rated break from D&D
- you ABSOLUTELY need to know the backstory for The Witcher: Assassin of Kings
- you kick yourself in the face for fun
