"The past two months have seen two of the most open world remarkable games in recent years: Metal Gear Solid 5, Hideo Kojiima’s absurd swan song, and The Witcher 3, CD Projekt Red’s sprawling medieval fantasy epic. Both these games are true accomplishments, and more than worth your time. Comparing them might seem like a pointless exercise in the abstract, but we’re not living in the abstract. For the gamer that only has enough money/time to commit to one of two of these games: it’s an important decision. Not everyone has 40-50 hours to commit to a big game like one of these, and even fewer have 80-100 hours to commit to both. So we assume for a second that we know you want to play a gruff man exploring a broad open world that dances between fantastical and grounded. So who’s it gonna be: The Witcher 3′s Geralt or Metal Gear Solid 5‘s Big Boss?"
