Witcher 3 is the windiest game ever?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Witcher 3 is the windiest game ever?

I'm 8 hours in and I have yet to see strong wind NOT blowing and bending trees and bushes like crazy.

So far I'm not impressed with this game, it doesn't feel like an RPG but just another open world game with busy work activities. It feels like the original game from 2007 but more technically advanced and with more stuff to do.

Deus Ex (2000) - a game that pushes the boundaries of what the video game medium is capable of to a degree unmatched to this very day.

I enjoyed the wind in the game, made traveling around the wilderness seem more lively. Everything wasn’t static like most games, it was more alive.

Also, keep playing, you have barely scratched the surface at 8 hours.



You are not a RPG fan then, best of the gen.



I just found out that my saves from a physical copy I don't own anymore, do not work with the digital version I have just bought...
There's a big chance I will not play this game ever again, even though I re-bought it to continue the story where I left off.

I do know that the wind never bothered me in my third of a playthrough.

Saves from original game don't work with GOTY edition. Why? No idea.

I wonder if the wind will be present in Switch version.

I will say that a game should have sold itself to the player within 8 hours or so.  If it hasn't gotten you yet, the blame goes on the devs.  But, IMO, the  story becomes more interesting in the middle third of the game.  So, you're not there yet.  Also, the second DLC (I can't remember the name right now) is the very best content in the game.  Hopefully, the game will pull you in and keep you around so you'll be able to experience it all.



Wouldn't that be Wind Waker? XD

So why you do the "busy work activities" ? You can just do all of the storyquests and it will still be a very lengthy awesome game.



Like Immersiveunreality said, if you feel spent from all this busy work activities, you'd probably should stick to the story quests content to speed up the process of your playthrough. Though, I do not know how long the story is by itself without the side content but I'd expect something pretty lengthy already x)
