    Guilty here as well.  Watched the series and decided to give the game a play through.

    It seems it is in fact Netflix effect because the same is happening with Witcher books, Sapkowski is currently #1 on Amazon's most popular author's list - https://www.amazon.com/author-rank/

    I have to say they are hardly the best fantasy I have read, indeed without the games I am not sure they would ever have become known internationally.

    Got it on PS4, then on GOG. Well those numbers should be higher, not without its flaws still better game than most things out there.

    People doing it wrong. They should be playing The Witcher 1 like I am. Freaking tourists :)

    I just put in an order for the Switcher 3 to replay one of the greatest games of all time on a hybrid console.

    It takes a strong will to replay the first one nowdays.

    The first 5+ hours are pretty awful in that one
    Personally, I think the first Witcher game is one of those rare few games that may be better to watch than to play.

    Fascinating story. Deeply flawed gameplay.

    It does start slow and it's annoying how they dole out the signs one at a time (although at least they give you the most OP sign right from the start lol ) but I'm finding it much more enjoyable than how I remembered it. Definitely playable and doesn't feel like a 12 year old game.

    What would be cool is if the show inspires CDPR to develop another dlc for Witcher 3 even though I believe they said they were done with it for a bit (of course this was before the show released). Even though I didn't care for the games (blasphemy, I know), the show does have a lot of potential and I did enjoy Cavill as Geralt more than I thought I would.

    and that is just on Steam. That doesn't count for Xbox because the game is now on gamepass, PS4, GoG, and the people on play the game illegally

    Played one and two a lot, never finished either. 3 is in my Library, calling to me. Im waiting for the right time as Ive tried to force it a few times and never made it very far past the first cutscene. Not the games fault. I have little doubt I will enjoy it once the ball is rolling, but my current game rotation wont allow for it and I am actually trying to finish campaign/RP games these days.

    I feel the same way except I get a bit further. I have beat the first area and then I tune out.

    It's the second best game of all time for me. What a ride it was. I should replay it again soon.

    I will admit I resinstalled it and have been playing since I began watching the witcher.

    I'm one of those fucks that is hellbent on the fact that steam is shit and i like to own my games. So I'm playing Witcher ... on GOG. Which I bought from a brick and mortar store. On launch day it came with bunch of free DLCs and a map and stickers and a thank you note. 10/10 would do it again.

    I'm proud to say, I beat the urge to play it after watching the series :P

    I can't force myself to play TW1 but I am strongly considering giving TW2 another run, I've played TW3 to death I think I have like 1500 hours in that thing. I was trying to get all the endings isn't there like 30 or something? I've only gotten about 3 different ones to date, but I am guilty of missing things the first playthrough so each playthrough after gets slower and slower because I'm exploring.

    Not to mention that CDPR timed their winter sale (both GoG and Steam) particularly well...

    Depending on whether you want only the core game for $8 or the GOTY for $15, what better time to capitalise on the hype?

    I bought and refunded this dumb game. It's so overrated, it's the same thing like with Skyrim - same overrated trash. Hope this hype dies soon, the game is nothing but Gothic/Risen with new graphics and a different setting and those games don't have much replay value after you play them once.

    The real RPG king is TES 3 Morrowind.
