    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.

    Also bought it on PS4 cause of the show. Originally played it on pc at release. I actually forgot how good the game was - havent been this immersed since years.

    I wasn't ever sure if I would like the Witcher series because of the combat....It just seems like so much work to do everything.

    So you all 'Tossed a coin to your Witcher (Oh Valley of Plenty)' someone had to say it. =P

    I just don't get how the entire media swallowed this right away (sure, I'm biased by default with anything steamygabe does), and they swallowed it big time...
    Gaming sites, fine, it's kinda their job. General IT sites and news outlets, was eyebrow raising. But when even tv show covering portals and fanblogs citing this piece, carrying it around like a trophy "look, the show is so awesome even steamcharts..."  WTF?

    It ain't about the show, nor the game, just about how good (unfortunately) steamygabe's marketing division is... Witcher 3 is literally the flagship of DRM-free games, and the only AAA title with several millions of sold copies outside of steam (and similar bloatwares like origin, uplay, etc.).
    They even had boxed physical release, like in the old, pre-steamygabe days, install it from the discs and play - no "have to register first", no "log in before launch", none of that bullshit.


    Don't get me wrong, I ain't against the whole replay phenomena which is clearly there.
    The show is good, Witcher 3 is good, it was on sale the entire month on gog (and steam had a sale as well), obviously players replay it now, or even play it the first time due to the show.
    It's almost natural, and not something news-worthy (imo).
    And definitely not by pointing at steamycharts, FFS.
    When it's about Witcher.

    It's a good story. But is it really a good game?

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

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



    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. 
    Never watch, only play!

    I would have gone with the Tidus laugh, but that works too.

    Nope not replaying as I didnt enjoy the game much nor the show.

    I am hoping what the show producers say will hold up- that season 2 will be tons better and will fix the weaknesses of season 1.

    I hope they can pull it off.

    As far as uptick on steam and uptick in book sales - 100% because of the Netflix series- there is no question

    Afraid that I, too, have picked back up playing TW3.
    I never finished it before but plan to play it all the way through with the DLCs as well.

    This doesn't surprise me, though. I talked to a friend that works for Barnes & Noble and she said ever since the series released, they have been having an extremly hard time keeping the books in stock.

    I believe that's why a deal was quickly struck for CDPR to continue with the rights to the series as well. It woukd be a bad business decision for them to let the IP slip away now.

    Hell, the series is beating out the Mandalorian on streaming charts, currently.

    I can understand people who think the games and series are not that good, even though they were good in my eyes (ok still only on ep 4). But to think they were bad? Tell us what a good game and TV series is then? Maybe the genre is just not for them?

    Happy I'm not one of those special snowflakes. Bought the book collection and already read through the first book. The last wish. Planning to replay the game fully since I have the GOTY. Too bad I only have so little free time v_v

    I am on the same boat.
    I bought the Witcher trilogy but I can’t get into any of them.

    Nothing wrong with the games, it’s just personal taste.
    I like my RPGs to be sandboxy, that’s why I like Bethesda IPs (Fallout and TES).

    Morrowind was probably the best.
    I don’t even remember the main Storyline, or if there was one at all.
    I just love wandering around Morrowind map discovering its mysteries and lore.

    I don’t particularly like heavy story driven RPG like Dragon Age and the Witcher, sometimes it feels like watching a movie, but I just want to actively play a game.

    Are you sure you bought The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt or something else? 

    No replay value? Bruh ... you definitely haven't played the game. If nothing else then GWENT gives you plenty of replayability LOL. 

    And that's just the core game. The DLCs add tons of systems and new features especially Blood and Wine.

    The combat is a bit stiff and requires mastery but once you get the hang of it, it starts to shine. And no, dodging/rolling 99% of the time like you'd do in Dark Souls is not something you want to do in fights.
