The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt remains masterpiece of game design. Through its many outstandng features, CDPR yet again solidifies their position as one of the foremost game developers of the modern era.

Pros:
+ Fantastic replayability.
+ Every quest has real impact, and feels meaningful.
+ Stunningly beautiful world/Graphical quality.
+ Choices you make change relationships with other characters and the world.
+ Extremely good voice acting.
+ Fleshed out characters. You quickly tie an emotional bond to the characters, and all the main characters are interesting, and complex.
+ Real-time breard growth (Cannot emphasise this enough).
+ Lots of free DLC and amazing paid DLC.
+ Deeply rooted crafting and loot systems. The is not a single "best" piece of armor of weapon in the game.
+ Great storytelling, Buying it for the main story alone is worth it. CDPR took an already great book series and made a game that is a full realization of its world.
+ Continued developer support.

Cons:
- Controls feel clunky when you require precision.
- Some of the side characters seem interesting, but fail to have any real development. (Im looking at you King of the Beggars).
- Filling out smaller locations on the map dont feel rewarding unless you like exploring.
- After the credits roll, the world can feel feels empty as none of your actions seem to shape the interaction with the characters around you.

FInalVerdict:
One of the very few games that have managed to impact me emotionally. It is, without a doubt, my favourite game. If you still havent bought it, pick it up during a sale.
