The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one of the best games Sherif Saed has played all year. So why can’t he finally finish the damn thing?
Massive games i have not finished one and two yet i do love the games rpg just takes too much time one day i will finish all of them have to buy the new one yet though.
Witcher 1 & 2 are minimum 50 Hours each games. While Witcher 3 is about 70 - 100 hours depending how much you explore.
I'm pretty sure I did almost everything in 1 and 2 and each took me about 50 hours, so I wouldn't say they're "minimum" 50 hours each... however I didn't do everything in W3, I'm not done yet, and I'm around 90hours. I'd say it's safe to say W3 packs at least as much content as 1 and 2 combined.
Sometimes great games are hard to finish because subconsciously you don't want them to end yet...
Witcher 2 at minimum is only 12 hours long. Witcher 1 at minimum is 20 hours.
@decrypt I have no clue where you got 70 hours as a minimum. But the game is anywhere from 25-200 hours all depending on how you play.
Ive spent so much time playing thru witcher 3 that it still feels like i have so much to do still.
Stick to the primary quest line as best you can... if you spend too much time farting around with contracts you'll end up overpowered - that said, there are several side-quests that feed into the main quests, so choose wisely. I said 'no' to plenty of jobs - you can usually (not always) come back and do them later... finding Ciri should be Geralt's first priority. I finished the story a couple of weeks back, but I still had plenty off side-quests and contracts to complete and it's been a pleasure doing them (especially 'Where the Cat and the Wolf Play')... After weeks of stressing over my decisions, it's been a suprisingly 'pleasant' change of pace to be back to doing Witcher's work. God knows I need the money - that mastercrafted gear can be very expensive.
I finished it weeks ago and did all side missions before completing the story, cant wait for the expansions. but for now BRING ON HALO 5 AND FALLOUT 4 !!!!!
I have a love hate relationship with the witcher, I love the dialogue and narrative, but for me the combat is so unbelievably awful. Maybe it's because I aside this, the only WRPGs I play are in the Souls series (and Bloodborne) but it just feel sloppy and tedious. Enemy AI makes it worse, as they always seem like they're not sure if they're attacking or not. I get the idea that wolves attempt to surround the target and attack from all sides, but I don't understand why enemies just walk away when they're in combat with me. They don't pursue outside of their designated area and that makes combat really annoying. Also the 'momentum' based combat is just an excuse for a limited set of animations. You can't even perform fine movements with Geralt, he can only move what is basically one whole pace, nothing in between. This isn't decision made for the better of the games design, it's objectively a limitation, resulting from their inability to dynamically interweave vast quantities of small and large animations depending on the players input.
I still haven't finished it but for me the XP bug came along and halted my playthrough and since then i haven't really been back to finish it. I will do eventually though.
Over 100 hours and i haven't finished it yet, i'm doing every side quest, every witcher contract before the last mission. Now i have +2 weeks to complete the game before MGSV arrives. The game is a Masterpiece!
Its funny but I am in the same boat, I loved my 60 hours I have invested so far but I felt burnt out so picked up a couple of shorter games. I now still feel like I am having to force myself to go back and play it. I think I have a good attention span with games, I recently put over 100 hours into 2 Bloodborne playthroughs so I dont know why I am struggling with Witcher 3. The production values, story and gameplay are all great so god knows whats wrong with me, I've gone wrong :)
I feel like I'm never gonna finish it :-( There's just so many quests, so much to do, and I love the card game. It's an amazing game.
Because you are a side mission lover, i went straight story, tired with so much patches.
because its gooooooood! and I salute CD Projekt Red for delivering such unforgettable experience! And that there is still more to come with expansions down the road.
Game may actually be TOO big? Thats what I got a sense of anyway during my play through (haven't finished it either). As a completionist who wants to find every spot on the map - there was basically no chance with this game haha There are too many games I want to play, and to invest hundred of hours into a single game is pretty hard imo.
I'm about 150 hours I now and have just some main quests to go, besides Skellige's Most Wanted and the Gwent missions (can't get into it, I know, I'm weird). Right now I'm just strictly exploring all the unexplored areas on the map and taking care of those pesky bandit camps and monster nest I hours of 100 percenting this [email protected]&!$#! Now I'm just wondering if I should finish and start a new game+ before the additional sorry packs are released or not. Any suggestions anybody?
Man. auto correct is making me sound like an idiot! Missed the opportunity to edit. Sorry bout that..lol
Because you can't hang...
