How did Horizon get close? Sorry friend, but 99% of all RPG's/Adventure games have shockingly too much filler, witcher 3 included. It's about time games treated side quests in the same manner as main missions.

Haven't beaten the game. Not sure how close I am. Just got the light arrows yesterday (hopefully that statement is vague enough to not spoil the game for anyone). I'm looking forward to seeing the content you're speaking of!

For me, games like this are to be savoured. We don't get experiences like this very often.

Yakuza puts so much effort into the side stories/content that it at times is not only indistinguishable from the main game, but the side stories are better developed than the main stories of many other narrative driven games.
I think Yakuza is in a league of its own in that regard.



I've completed it and on my next playthrough I will begin to work on the post game content.. I'm excited and I will let you know

I love these hyperbolic statements going round that God of war is the GoTG and all of that, love seeing people excited to that point. However I think it's getting harder and harder to see a clear GoTG that isn't based on opinion. One thing however that can be said in GoW favour beyond the fact that the game is an incredible masterpiece in almost all aspects, is quality all the way through and still manages to evoke a feeling of progression and gaining more power as any good GoW game should and has little to few technical issues something very few games achieve these days. Besides that...

I'm not done with GoW so I can't comment on the overall quality of sidequests (although I'll say I freaking loved freeing the dragon) but I just want to chime in here because of the bolded statement. There's no such thing as a Game of the Generation that isn't based on opinion. People like different things and high points for a category will mean everything to some and mean nothing to others.



Signature goes here!

I'll have to give it a try when it gets a sale, Only thing is that old style map design puts me off. 

I'd suggest Yakuza 0 then, even though it's not on the new PS4 engine.
If you can spare 6 minutes to listen to this guy (maybe download it as an MP3 and listen while you're out and about) describe his thoughts on the game and in particular the side content. The amount of time he spent just racing toy cars may sound crazy, but I find that it's common for Yakuza playthroughs to have very long save file hours clocked in because of things like this.

If you don't have time to listen to it, then Tl;Dr, it was his first Yakuza game, and its one of the best games he's ever played. "The amount of time effort and care they put into the side quests and mini games is second to none. There are mini games in Yakuza 0 that rival actual games."

yup, it definitely has great side content. Like some side missions are structured like entire levels. And the amount of optional stuff to do in the game regardless of how much obviously went into building it is ridiculous.

I dare say the side content is almost as long as the main content..... well, its definitely harder.

Much, much harder. I just managed to finish the trails of Muspheliem after grinding out gear in Invalids dungeon and man was that a task and a half, too the best part of two evenings just to get past the valkerie, get the three keys and finish the last task Some of the valkeries are harder than any Souls-borne boss I've come across bar one from the chalice dungeons in BB and I went down to balanced, I can't imagine the pain it would be on the second hardest difficulty or god forbid the hardest. 

Are you fucking kidding me? I have finished the game and didn't even visit Muspheliem Once, was saving it for post game thrills. I dabbled into inalids dungeon before completing the game jut to get enough mist to get the mist amor and even then  I felt that shit was too hard and I was probably to go to the fire realm first before coming there. And now you tell me you had to grind at invalids to be better suited for muspheliem...... damn.

And I am playing on the second hardest difficulty, managed to beat two of the valkyrie just before beating the game so now I am trying to power everything up before taking on the rest.I am actually scared now lol.

I hear there is also more after you defeat the nine valkeries

Music to my ears BOY!!!



I rank as following for the content.

Zelda
GOW
Witcher 3

Both GOW/Zelda are games I could easily go back to and do everything all over again any day of the week. Witcher 3 however feels more like a chore than actual fun
