dude really? the new GoW was so uninspired compared to the older ones .. Everyhting that made GoW a great franchise was destroyed with the new one.

Lmao. Same base enemies just different variations did it better? It's an excellent game but lets not kid ourselves here.

The Witcher 3 is a 10x better game IMO - the story, the characters, the world, the atmosphere, the controls (even if not perfect), the immersion. I would give RDR2 a solid 8/10 and Wither 3 a 9.5

Yes and no, to be honest. I picked Witcher 3 up last night as I saw a lot of people say they prefer it to RDR2. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, so I thought i'd try it out.

Some things are good. The story seems good so far, the graphics are very nice, the gore is great, the combat is good. But the animation system is not as good as RDR2's, it's way more rigid and less realistic. The horse movement is dumb, I seem to get stuck on 6 inch high objects than RDR2 would have the horse automatically jump and navigate over for you. Voice acting is a bit weird, the voices sound the same no matter where the charachter is - also i've heard the soldiers say the same things to me about 10 times already, just canned repeated sentences. Sometimes you are in a forest, but the voice is all echoey from certain characters like they recorded it in a cave. The details in RDR2 are also better, such as picking herbs how he strips the leaves off the twig etc, in Witcher 3 there is no looting animation like that. So I feel like RDR2 has got the details better, the animations better. I think the world is better designed too (IMO ofcourse). But the movement and handling is more sluggish, the graphics are artistically great but a bit soft and blurred (atleast on PS4 Pro) etc, the story is less focused in RDR2 as well.

They are both great games and each game has it's strengths and weaknesses. I guess it is just down to what is important to you in a game. For me, the details really immerse me and help me feel like the world is alive, so RDR2 edges it for me. For other people they are more interested in a sharp and fluid combat system, in which case I can see why they would prefer Witcher 3.
