I'm 24. If you listen to all the dialogue it takes about 2-3 hours of cut scenes just to get to the damn fight.
I'm back at the Gryphon fight now.
And I've never played any Witcher games before this one...

I'm used to DS2 just tossing you into anything with nothing to go on. smile.gif

Basically, yes it is. They offer a small fraction of the different things you can do, compared to the rest of the maps.

If you guys don't like cutscenes, then I'd stay away from most modern rpg's which are heavily story/character driven.

Reverse psychology eh?

Steam gave me a refund, that was easy.

i don't mean to challenge how they hand out their awards and stuff.....but shouldn't "the ultimate game of the year" be picked among the list of best games in the different platforms? The logic goes like, if it isn't the best game in at least 1 platform, how is it possible to become the best of all?

Unless that's not their definition of ultimate GOTY I guess....

Well its a completely different type of rpg. If you are bored with dialogues you are not not going to get much out of it tough. There is a lot of dialogue in the game, every sidequest no matter how small got its own cutscenes/story. Not even to mention the books like monster info, lore books and much more.

That sort of logical thinking does not belong in this thread good sir.

I can't get into this game because I suck at it. I have it on the easiest difficulty and I still die a bunch and it's annoying playing through the same 10 minutes of storyline for an hour. I'm only level 5 and it's like I'm facing off against level 50 enemies it seems.

Not a chance. Not when it's stuck on gamebryo.

TW3 is the best game to appear in the last 7 years at least, despite it's flaws and downgrades. Bethesda got CD Project Rekt by TW3, beaten at their own game. They no longer have the monopoly on open world AAA fantasy games, and CDPR didn't just meet them, they outclassed them in almost every way. Obviously it's too late for Fallout 4, but hopefully this is going to motivate Bethesda to get off their arses and up their game for the next Elder Scrolls. Thankfully TESO flopped, so now Zenimax can focus it's resources on proper TES games again.

As much as I loved Witcher 3, I don't see it being better than Fallout 4. I could be wrong but I'd still rank Fallout 3 and NV over Witcher 3.
