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

I'm in the camp that the Witcher 3 sucks. It has nothing on Horizon Zero Dawn, Breath of the Wild and Skyrim.



Around the Network

I too felt that the scenes between Gwent games were a bit too long and annoying. It always felt like one was more occupied with riding, fighting monsters and stuff, instead of actually playing Gwent.

That's one bad camp then.



It is a great camp. All 3 games I mentioned are superb.

Skyrim has got nothing on Witcher 3, nothing, other 2 are great but not on Witcher 3 level.

I didn't enjoy my first attempt at playing the Witcher 3, myself. I could tell it was an ambitious game and something that I wanted to enjoy, but it wasn't until I played on PC and at a reasonable difficulty level that I got hooked. I was playing either on Death March or the one right before it, and a lot of the encounters required multiple attempts, and the load times on the OG PS4 meant that I would hit a wall where I would spend far too much time quick saving and reloading that intended.

I generally play games at a high difficulty because I like difficult games, but while some games are rewarding in their difficulty, I do not not think Witcher 3 is one of them; Witcher 3 plays best when you aren't struggling to progress, as it's far more spectacular in it's storytelling and atmosphere than it's combat and character progression.

I still haven't beaten the game yet, as I spent so much time doing side quests that I got burnt out before completing it (which isn't to say anything bad about the game itself, as Persona 5 and Skyrim comes to mind as great games that I never finished but still sunk 100s of hours into as well).

What I really like about Witcher 3 is the setting. I love the world so much, and the characters are hilarious and very well executed.

All a matter of opinion. I loved Horizon Zero Dawn, found Red Dead Redemption 2 great (but not better than HZD, GoW, SM) even with the bad gameplay, but didn't like The Witcher 3.

Sometimes we force ourselves because we may not be seeing what made so many people like it.

FF XII when I played first time (were probably around my 20s) didn't like at all, after putting probably 10h on it. This year I played the remaster and liked it a lot.
