All it needs is some Dark souls influence ;)

Dark Souls influence ruffled a few carebears back when Witcher 2 released, so i doubt that'll happen again.

The witcher series is primarily based around story and characters, the new combat looks extremely fluid and responsive so why they would want to copy clunky , awkward fighting mechanics is beyond me.

A PC series needs to borrow nothing from a console game.

As an RPG developer, they really should only look to Skyrim's overall scope when it comes to development.
Little else.

Skyrims scope with CD Projekt Red detail perhaps?
Roccetarius  +   422d ago
Yeah, i'm hoping that's what he meant. :) I hope we don't get another empty playground, such as Skyrim.

That's exactly what I was aiming for. Bethesda games are shallow and, in my opinion, no more an RPG than San Andreas.
It's the player choice, the consequence of those choices and character/world building that makes an RPG.
Not the fact that your game has stats.

CD Projekt is probably the best in terms of creating a modern RPG with the sensibilities and feel of the classics.

Bashing all Bethesda games seems a little bit overkill to me. Morrowind was the ultimate gateway game into rpg's for me and many others. And the Shivering Isles was an expansion that puts nearly all dlc to shame (it also put Oblivion to shame).

That said, I did feel more like a tourist in beautiful Skyrim than an actual player.

i agree. so little to do besides fetch quests with mediocre storylines and boring dungeons. the size and scope of that game would have been superb if they filled all those dungeons with bosses, sub bosses, puzzles, challenges of some sort, new gear, etc. but most are empty and have useless shit in them which only serves as something to sell to make your own gear which is much better than anything you can find

That's mainly the problems i have with Bethesda's games. The lore in the games, even in the books found in the game is not something to write about.

Yet, they're still being praised to infinity.

I know their very different but bioware can make fantastic rpg's too. We saw the infamous speech system in witcher. I'm sure it will be brilliant though. Ever since e3 is been my most anticipated announced title.

I can honestly say that Skyrim was the best game I ever played in my 17 years of living. And it got me really looking forward to the Witcher 3. I love these types of games now.

I really hope you take to it. Witcher is one of my favorite series. I can promise you though, these games share almost nothing in common.

And Battlefield ;) You guys are in for a treat.

Wish developers would understand that just because its popular it doesn't mean they need to be 'influenced' by it.

Maybe for the shooter genre, I don't think rpg's are as bad as the shooter genre
