    ...and it's very possibly the best game I've ever played.



    Absolutely amazing.

    Dude, it's incredible! I am somewhat embarrassed to admit this, but I have completed every single quest possible in this game. That is how obsessed I am/was with it. Have you partaken in the DLC content yet? Blood & Wine is by far my favorite part of W3.

    Currently, I am playing Kingdom Come Deliverance, which is also VERY FUN! Hard as hell and truly unforgiving but such a great game for amount it cost to produce.

    I have the complete edition, so everything is included. I'm just starting out, playing on Blood and Broken Bones difficulty.

    You'll probably be amazed by just how much of an expansion Blood and Wine was too then. The Toussaint scenery is stunning.

    I love this game. I had such good time playing it. It is definitely one of the best games I have played.

    I had a lot of fun with The Witcher 3 at first, but being a bit of a completionist so I can't leave The Village of Nobodyknows until making sure the little lady gets her loaf of bread or the the wolf that killed the boy's gerbil meets the Taxidermist and the widow finds her lost trinket from her husband.

    Every time a quest tells me to go to a city/town/village I haven't been to I think "ah crap, here come another 40 quests." I'm also a horder snoop and compulsively have to open every single chest and barrel.

    I beat Witcher 1 and 2 due to their focused quest line more manageable and played them through to completion. Single-player games with giant open worlds tend to defeat me before I complete them. So I get tens (hundreds?) of hours in and then... stop playing. Same thing happened with the most recent Dragon Age. Though I -did- beat Skyrim, it was sort of an afterthought that I should probably go do the main quest since I spent so much time in the various sub-quest chains and had a beefy mage.

    I will go back to Witcher 3 eventually though. (And the most recent Fallout.... Probably Dragon Age one day as well.)

    I may be 70% of the total content done but 10% of the main quest ha.

    Same thing happens to me. I still haven't done the 'civil war' part of skyrim with two fairly beefy playthroughs.

    Funny thing is, loved the first 2 Witcher's, I pre-ordered W3 with the expansion pass, still haven't touched it.

    Still it's too short without add ons.
    But I agree its by far the best RPG since da:eek: and Baldurs Gate.

    Can you play Skyrim to completion without joining either the Vampires or Werewolves? Those two factions kept bugging me to join them.

    I've tried playing it 3 times now. I get about 10 hours in and just stop. The constant errandboy questing just drives me nuts. Shame because I really wanted to enjoy it.

    Do you then stop playing the quests of SotA too?

    Yes, you're not required to join them. You don't have to join them in Dawnguard either.

    No because at least here I get interaction with other people. I don't think I'd be able to play this game in single player for that reason. The community matters much more.
