  1. What has everyone got with W3?

    Author: Crawl 04.12.15 - 10:30

    Honestly, without trolling, what's so good about the Gane?

    Had it on the PS4 just got to my grasp. But only with great difficulty because I almost died of boredom beforehand.

    My impression was: the graphics were very good, the surroundings totally boring, no interaction possible, only a few farmhouses.
    The fights felt so bad and so weird, kind of sluggish and shaky. At times I had the feeling that I was playing a flight simulator. The story more than 0815. A guy who fucks everything that gets in his way is looking for a olle witch accompanied by a grandpa. The menus are so confusing and ugly like anything else. Maybe it's okay, but this price and the constant comparisons with Fallout 4 don't go into my head.

    I've been playing all kinds of games on PC, consoles and smartphones for 25 years. That means I'm not focused on a pleasure now. Exotics like Take on Mars also captivate me as much as a Destiny or Fallout. I mean, I tried really hard with the game, waited for the big patch, but nothing, it didn't get better. Then sold it. I can't understand the hype of the trade press and gamers.

    Honestly, without trolling, I can't understand why not everyone agrees with you.

    Quite simply, just because a game doesn't turn you on, you're nobody. One of tens, tens of millions of players. And probably not even a US player, because that's a US price.

    So whether you like a game or not has absolutely nothing to do with a jury award. Of course, nothing to do with the fan votes, because no dead dog is interested in a vote. But the GotY is a US journalists jury award, so even if you don't understand why the game is so good, it's bad for you, but nobody cares.

    Then you are the exception.

    Although I can hardly understand your argument. The graphics are fantastic (for this genre of course), and interaction with the environment is no less than in comparable representatives.
    I can't understand that the fights felt sluggish and wobbly, but that might just be subjective.

    I think your statement about the story is almost bold. You have just played the tutorial (about 1% of the game time) and say the story that he is looking for his foster daughter is bad. (Although you don't know anything about your love affairs here and actually don't care at all?)

    The menus are a bit straight and you are right, although I hardly see that as a real reason to find a game bad.

    "This Price" is the same price pretty much every other AAA game has.

    I liked The Witcher 3. Graphics are very good too. The fights are already choppy and the world is too monotonous for me personally. However, The Witcher 3 shines through its cities. The attention to detail in the cities is unmatched. Also that there are no charging processes when entering a house. The side quests are also very exciting.

    Personally, I would have indulged Fallout 4. I personally enjoy it a lot more. Even if there are countless loading processes and the graphics are out of date. The engine hasn't been improved much since TESV Skyrim. Still, Bedestha managed to deliver a fantastic game with addictive potential.

    You practically played the "tutorial" because that's the entire first region, which is quite large for it.

    The atmosphere in such RPGs unfolds when you allow it.

    Anyone who just runs through and hopes to experience the bombastic action possible is simply wrong.

    It is also not a Dark Souls that practically only lives from combat.

    In the end you play Gerald like in a book (which is ultimately based on a story from a book).


    The story unfolds quite well because it is really long and you still have a lot of opportunities to discover additional things if you are looking for it and not just blindly expire quest markers (you can do that if you want to).


    I found the big city in the game really impressive, because unlike in normal RPGs, this is a really "big" city with a believable structure, not a village of 5 houses that just cover the quests.


    Some quests also have moral choices that significantly change the gameplay experience; In comparison, the Fallout 4 makes it extremely bad, since the dialogue of the own character changes only marginally, but the answers of the NPC remain practically the same (I found it very disappointing).


    The Witcher's "Love" story is unique, but remains very credible if you find your way into the world (let's be honest, the "witches" you have on your side are simply sex bombs, you can hardly "no") " say).


    The fight is "ok", you have to get used to the fact that you can't just haphazardly press buttons; You should use the magic in particular (especially the shield) and you have to stay at least halfway up-to-date with your equipment so that you don't do completely underground damage.


    The "menu" is perfectly fine, especially if you are used to older RPGs (ala Baldur's Gate) you can cope with it without any problems.
    On the console it should be worse, but on the PC you have a hotkey for each menu tab and you can move everything with the mouse, so no topic at all.


    The typical RPGs eat up a lot of time. Ultimately like reading a thick book.

    Those who cannot or do not want to get involved with it do not get warm and prefer to watch an action film; it's shorter and gets to the point quickly.

    Witcher is more of a game that can also be played 2+ times, once as a good saint who "supposedly" helps everyone and then again with the options as a daredevil (similar to the one solved in Mass Effect with Paragon and Renegade, has easy a different flair and in key situations the difference is very big and stays in the memory).


    The card game in Witcher 3 alone is ultimately quite motivating, as you can sink hours into it.

    All in all, it adds up to 40+ hours and there is a lot more in it.



    ----

    But should also give people who just don't like such games. Some don't like Skyrim, others don't like GTA, so there's something for everyone; I actually like all of it;)

    I found Witcher 3 terrible, especially - for me the most important - gameplay. Gerald fell around like a drunk. I also found everything to be pretty bland and repetitive (NPCs, terrain, ..)

    My GOTY: Bloodborne + Old Hunters

    So I don't think that something repeats itself all the time in W3, even the side quests are varied. Control is fully OK and the main story is very exciting. Even decisions in the side quests have an impact on the main thread. The graphics are amazing, the sound is decent and the scope is enormous.

    I found it terrible too. ^^ But well I thought the entire Witcher series was stupid.

    I think it's shit anyway that such a price is awarded even though the year is not over yet and there are still pearls such as FO4 and Co.

    imho (!!!): I thought W3 was legendary. The story grabbed me from the start. But the greatest fascination for me was the world, so believable and gloomy at the beginning, accompanied by uniquely fitting music. I still like to run through it today ... just like that. Then Novigrad - one of the most beautiful cities in RPGs.
    Only the combat control actually took time to get used to. But I attributed that more to my inability than to the developers ... after getting used to it, I would rather criticize the monotony of the boss fights.

    Yeah, I'm waiting in vain for the release of FO4 & Co.

    FO4 is basically a shooter with a bit of grinding and wouldn't stand a chance against pearls like W3.

    W3 is superior to FO4 in every point. I can't think of one thing that FO4 does better.

    But probably taste is just different ...

    Completely correct,
    only find the many bandit camps in Velen a bit unimaginative.

    Oh, there's something to see ... a bandit camp
    and there ... a bandit camp
    Etc.

    I don't understand the hype about bloodborne, I found the game terribly boring.

    In Quest A a character dies at the end and after 5 minutes I accept Quest B and the NPC looks exactly like the deceased. That went through the whole game and was very sobering.

    It looks fantastic, but the landscape is roughly always similar and the same.

    The skill and character development are very poor and boring for an RPG. If we had a Skyrim / Bethesda skill system, things would change.

    Witcher 3 is a very good game, but the cinematic, sensational story and the large game world often deceive you about many weaknesses.

    If you know the books, w3 feels like a real further tour. At w3, the many details and the effort behind them are great. Just like the communtiy work.
    W3 is not the typical RPG. The character is given by the books. And that strikes a lot.

    The NPC models in the cities, the landscapes, everything is recycled forever.

    True, but at least all of the main characters had very detailed faces and animations.

    Still more variety than in Skyrim. Caves and walls. In The Witcher 3, cities were also of different imho.

    I don't know, except for the level-up popups every now and then, I didn't find Skyrim the least bit more exciting in terms of skills. Only the stealth system was halfway fun, but only because it was a little less boring than the rest.

    Sure, it's far from perfect, but I liked the game pretty much. Only the balance of the levels of difficulty was not really achieved.

    The story was still halfway ok, but the controls ugh - a little more than what felt like 10 different NPC models would have been nice and a lot more variety in the landscape.
