I finished a long quest line last night, the one to find the bloody baron's family and it had a really dark outcome (in the end you find him hanging from a tree having topped himself). The game then told me all the decisions i'd made up to then which lead to that moment :dread: It's great that it does that and was really unexpected as i'm used to bethesda games having no meaningful consequence to anything, but it does mean i've got to actually start thinking my actions through.

Yeah sure, unleash this evil tree thing in to a horse to murder everyone, what could go wrong? :lol:

As much as I liked the game, I found that to be the high point of the game as far as quests go. Nothing else was as branching or had as many interesting outcomes. I'm currently playing Witcher 2, gonna finish that and then do W3 and DLC.

Walking into that city is one of my favourite moments in any game.

Yeah Novigrad is a stunning achievement, as are most of the towns and villages in the game.

It's kind of embarrassing what other games think they can get away with for their populated areas in a post-Witcher 3 world, some of the smallest villages in this game put the main "cities" in a Bethesda RPG to shame.

The Witcher 3 is one of the few games where I will enter a city or town and choose to make my character walk or my horse trot rather than run just to soak in the experience.

Finally finished my Witcher 2 vs 2017 video. When I was playing W2 I just couldn't help but compare it to games from 2017 and in almost every respect, Witcher 2 came out the better.

Not a bad video and some genuinely funny descriptions but you picked on Andromeda for cut scenes and animation, Unity on bugs and Shadow of Wars loot system....I mean, most games compared to those are going to come out on top in those situations.

Lots of quests in Fallout 4 have different endings depending on choices but not main quest lines I suppose... still a little misleading.

Do you think 2 is better than Witcher 3?

Well at first it was just a straight graphics comparison. I had compared it to Nier, PUBG, and stuff, but then thought that was a little unfair as they are low budget titles. But the more i thought about it i realized how much better W2 is in terms of being bug free, lootbox free, better looking, more varied and nuanced quests etc etc than those games. Yeah its low hanging fruit in terms of the shitshow that is andromeda but still, any chance to stick the knife in those games eh :lol:

Witcher 2 i think has a better story, and is more focused than Witcher 3. But no denying Witcher 3 is a better game.
