11 Things CD Projekt Needs To Do In The Witcher 3

From Strategyinformer.com: "We’re big fans of CD Projekt’s The Witcher series here at Strategy Informer. While the original had a few problems it showed a lot of promise that was realised with the release of an Enhanced Edition, and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings was so great I awarded it 9/10. Twice.

That also got an Enhanced Edition and a console release for the first time. Now the final part of Geralt’s saga, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, has finally been announced – but what do we want from it? The previous game scraped within touching distance of being the best RPG ever made, what things does CD Projekt need to do with The Witcher 3 to get that full 10/10? 11 things, in fact, so we better get right to it. How about...". (PC, PS3, PS4, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

"if I was to pick the biggest flaw the series has so far it’s that the overall plot of both games doesn’t really feel involving"

That's a strange thing to say considering all the hard choices you have to make throughout the games, and how their consequences impact the whole plot. Personnaly, I've rarely felt so engaged in a story like I was in the Witcher 2.

Anyway, I'm sure CD Projekt knows exactly what to do. Just look at the insanely huge step they made between The Witcher and Assassins of Kings. I have no doubt The Witcher 3 is going to set the bar even higher.

I actually disagree with number 1. No game is perfect right out of the gate. Providing a free update addressing issues was one of the main reasons they engendered so much goodwill.

But I will acknowledge that the console crowd may not be okay with it. PC gamers have long been used to games having issues from the start and have always been more willing to give the developers time to fix things post launch. Consoles intentionally limit that sort of thing and expect high quality from the start. This isn't a bad thing but CDPR isn't accustomed to that and so might take heat for it from the start, thus hurting their reputation on the consoles. Skyrim illustrates this very well.

They would be far better off releasing on PC first then the enhanced edition on consoles.

Nothing will ever be perfect for humankind.
To add to yours.. I have never seen a game released on pc or console free of bugs. People will bitch at anything, it's in the nature of things. If there truly was a game that came out free of bugs and lets say it was even an amazing game to play, someone will be there to state that another game of their preference is better. That's all it is, really. Everyone has their opinion and because of this wonderful thing called "the internet", we're going to hear/read about it.

So does the word Revengeance.

Have you played the series at all? The Wild Hunt is pretty deeply integrated into the Lore.

I would love a Witcher 1 remake on the Red Engine 3.
