I almost felt the same with skyrim, how can you mention skyrim as a good example? I agree on the combat and length of some missions.



Couldn’t agree more.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

If world building and the lore doesn't interest ya then not much else to say. It ain't gonna appeal to everyone of course. For me it struck a chord as being a fantastic single player RPG in a time where single player RPGs were being drastically reduced to meet more casual expectations, as seen in the later Mass Effect/Dragon Age/Fallout games.



I agree. Game is shit.

I found it very entertaining, visually striking, and the story interesting. My favorite game of 2015, in fact!

Yeah, but you like Destiny 2, your opinion is therefore invalid



I agree wholehartedly. I can't stand Witcher 3 and I don't see anything good with it apart from the purely technical qualities like graphics and animation.

Yes, in particular it pisses me off because of its ultra-modern cynical and nihilistic moral and culture, where everyone is so aware and conscious. Everyone has a bad mouth, everyone is perverted, filthy, hypocritical and completely unlikable. It tries to be so edgy, it's so damn politically correct that I want to vomit, the people in this world have the same mindset and awareness of human rights, moral relativism, social issues and the modern progressive worldview, just like the most conscious inner city New Yorker, despite this supposedly being kings and peasants living in a medieval fantasy world.

Witcher 3 stands for everything wrong in our modern world. It's about pissing on everything that is beautiful and decent. It has no respect for history and tradition.

There are also awful game design aspects I hate about Withcher 3, where it tries to be Red Dead Redemption rather than an RPG. It's not really an RPG at all. It uses so much smoke and mirrors when it comes to progression, leveling, items, skills and stats. Many cynical game mechanics, but I can't bother to go them through. I just get sad at mankind because so few have spotted this cynical design philosophy. It's really sad and pathetic how this cynical nihilistic (postmodern) style is considered the most sophisticated form of popular culture in our time.

How the heck is Witcher 3, of all the games out there, the game you choose to call politically correct? As someone who cannot abide by politcal correctness in the slightest, I don't see it as politically correct at all, in fact I'd say it's anti-politically correct. In a world where feminists hate on any female game character that is sexualized in any way, shape, or form, CD Projekt fights back by making the majority of of female main characters in the series attractive. All of the sorceresses in the series are attractive and wear revealing outfits. Prostitution, not politically correct, yet you can visit whore houses in the game whenever you want to. Violence, not politcally correct, yet Witcher 3 is one of the most violent games I've ever played. The list goes on and on. 

Now Bioware RPG's, those have become massively politically correct, to the point where I'm finding it more and more difficult to play them.

But that is politically correct. It just doesn't censor things like SJWs do.

It portrays all the things you listed as negative things. Anti-politically correct would be to glorify beauty, the upper class ladies, prostition and sex and violence. But Witcher 3 is this clichéd "look how dirty and miserable our world is (because it's really a reflection of our world and all that is considered wrong in it by those who are politically correct)". The Witcher 3 is cultural critique against hierarchies, tradition, inequality, selfishness etc.

But the attractive sorceresses, I'll give them that perhaps. They're a bit too attractive and feminine to be considered 100% politically correct. But they'll tone down the sexyness of the sorceresses until their next game.
