In the gaming industry hype is a very powerful tool, but at the same time hype can be a very powerful curse. We've seen games approach launch with astronomical levels of hype only to fall short of the buzz. We've seen games surpass what people had hoped for. Hype is a silver-bullet that can take a game's expectations from reasonable to insurmountable. For The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt though, this game could indeed be hype-proof.
