Forums - Gaming Discussion - I quit The Witcher 3 after 33 hours

I kept pushing and pushing forward but I simply wasn't having any fun, it is the same thing over and over - a stupid cutscene, a new quest, follow the marker to it, another cutscene, then you fight some monster(s) and the quest is completed, rinse and repeat. I had more fun with a mediocrity like Arcania. Even the graphics are somewhat bad, played on Ultra at 1440p mind you - the game is too dark at all times and the flora is moving unrealistically like in a 6th gen game.

I bought into the hype about the quest variety but I don't see it at all, the quests are all the same, they just have different cutscenes.

Odd, someone of my most favorite W3 quests involved zero fighting of monsters.

33 hours for something you don't like? I usually give it an hour, maybe less. I don't have that much time to dedicate myself to something I don't like.

Wi.....tcher 3? I tell ya, these abbreviated game names in OP's lately....I had a similar experience with JC3, at least in terms of the time I invested before deciding to bail.

I see what you did there.

Well I also played 30+ hours of the Witcher 3, because so many said it was a great game. I hated the game until save got corrupt and I decided I wouldn't start from scratch.

Cant blame you, Ive always felt Warcraft 3 was overrated.

Too hero based. Wc2 got it right. It should feel like a war game!

I liked Witcher 3, but that's mostly because I explore more than I do quests. Exploring on your own is always more fun than doing a quest where you are told where to go. BotW got that part of open world game design right. 70% of BotW is lookinh got Shrines, Koroks, or something else you can discover on your own.
