should have quit earlier if you werent having fun. time is valuable. that being said this and breath of the wild are my favorite games of the past 10 yrs

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.

but 33 hrs seems a lot tho. When I first got fallout 3 I thought it sucked but I had only played about 2 hours I moved onto Mass effect and loved it. Then I picked it up again years later when I had a drought and put over 200 hrs into it and I never even beat the game



Around the Network

There are plenty of things that make this game pretty immersive, the most important probably being its setting. You can feel that you're playing in a land devastated by the effects of war, plagues, monsters, and more; and it's always interesting to see how these affect the characters' behaviors. Geralt's detective-esque's dialogues are also intriguing to hear, they give a lot of insight about the world. On top of that, exploring grants you the chance to see very beatiful scenaries.

The music has been awesome so far, as well. Overall, I'd see The Witcher 3 as a very appreciative game, which of course I see why it's not going to be of the liking of a lot of people, I didn't like BotW much as I wanted for the same reason.



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first.

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.

Agree to disagree.  For me nothing ruins an experience faster than cut scenes and story.  RDR2 and W3 both had too much of that.  

Edit

Having said that I am tempted to give it another go, just out of curiosity.  Though I tried Sekiro three times and RDR2, and my opinion never shifted.

Yes it is, but I have done the same (30+h) and would probably have ended the game even not liking it if my save didn't corrupt.

Well I don't remember ever filling the landed seemed destroyed by war, it seemed more like empty for no reason.

Understandable but Horizon is not exactly light on cutscenes and story either.  and unless I am remembering wrong some of the devs that worked on Horizon worked on Witcher 3 also

I think I'll quit Diablo 3. 30h in and the gameplay is always boring and repetitive.



Gameplay > Graphics

Substance > Style

Art Direction > Realism

Horizon is a bit on the heavy side, but the world (robo dinosaurs) were interesting enough to keep my attention.  W3 didn't do anything new, at least IMHO.

That is one genre I could honestly quit after 5 min, never understood the appeal of it.

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'll third the Diablo not liking. I don't get the appeal either. Boring as ****.



Never played any Witcher game, although I saw my partner playing the Witcher 2.
I'm thinking on getting Switcher 3 on Switch. :D
