I agree...Witcher 3 has my attention, Until Dawn was a great diversion and next is Batman and then Fallout 4. The back catalog is getting way full.

First world problems right...

I like Witcher 3 more than this game but this one is pretty great too. Witcher felt like more of a story and an adventure and this feels like doing a list of objectives. Still great though, the systems all work very well and you have infinite options how you do the missions it just feels kind of dry to me. 8.5/10

Witcher 3 clearly has a better-constructed world and a more interactive story. But I prefer playing MGS5. Gameplay in MGS5 is like a sandbox of limitless opportunities, whereas Witcher 3's gameplay feels more like just a tool to unlock story with. The story is good, though. They're both amazing games that blow most other games out of the water.

I have to agree with the fact that MGS5's world feels a bit dry, though. It's an open world that doesn't actually "feel" open, mostly because there's never any real reason to travel from one location to another by land. You just drop into a mission area and get extracted

The game is based on the fact you create a ''free army'' that takes job offers from anyone. Ofcourse some of the missions only feels like objectives, meanwhile the story missions feels different.

The problem is 85% of the game feels that way.

It doesn't if you listen to the tapes, or pay attention to the story.
