The Witcher 3 : Wild Hunt
1)is really the game that good that would merit the time commitment, knowing that I may be able to play any other game for a while?
2)And if I just focus on main story and normal difficulty how long do you guys think it would take me and would I lose a lot of the experience by rushing through it?
1)Yes, story and characters are awesome, there is nothing like it in that department in recent memory
2)It would take 40hrs anyway atleast since there is lotsa talking, and yes if you want to avoid bad combat , switch to easy
If you give story more importance then jump in
Thanks! I think I’m gonna make the jump, even though there’s a batch of games coming that I wanna play but if this proves good enough I guess it won’t matter much.
I forgot one last question though. Are the RPG elements too deep? Like would I be juggling with a lot of statistics/items/upgrades or what not? I loved how in ME 2 and 3 these were kind of stripped down, it was perfect for people like me that want to focus more on story and progression than stats and stuff (And one of the reasons why I’m hesitant with Andromeda). How does it compare to ME in that regard?
Its arcadey combat like Fable
And on easy its easy, just hit,evade and drink potion and there are just few spells that you will master anyway soon
I too am busy but my trick to fast through games is just learn the menu and complex system day1 or 2 and then just make a easy way out of it(if game is not fun to get deep in)
Like i never combined potions to make buffs, or other alchemy things , because i never needed them nor they are necessary to finish the game, so just keep the style you want for whole game
And if I just focus on main story and normal difficulty how long do you guys think it would take me and would I lose a lot of the experience by rushing through it?
Frankly i did focus on main story at early release version and sometimes rushed through coz of some bugs,briefly did what i have to do..
But replaying with goty version changed whole perception about story arc,first of
all if you want to experience the real lore of Geralt’s world(which unprecedently created) you shouldn’t focus main story.Main story merely an implement about bigger forces Geralt cannot overcome.Where stellar narrative lies in the secondary quests,daily obstacles of
Geralt, which unfolds intriguingly juxtaposed stories about his realm.
What’s beyond that,you’ll loose lot even if you complete all missions once,coz most of
them offers options with different outcomes which haunts you about your decision.
