Why The Witcher 3 Is Still One of the Best RPGs Even After 3 Years

On the game's 3rd anniversary, we'd like to pay some tribute to The Witcher 3 and it's developer, CD Projekt Red and discuss why it's still one of the best open world games (not just an RPG), and why you need to play it ASAP, if you still haven't.

Completely agree. I'd go as far as saying that The Witcher 3 is one of the best games of all time.

joab777149d ago

Yep. The next rpg to hold a candle to TW3 will be Cyberpunk 2077.

DVAcme149d ago

I have no clue why you're getting downvoted so much when Cyberpunk 2077 will be just as epic as The Witcher 3 but with the setting of one of the best tabletop RPGs of all time.

Gatsu149d ago (Edited 149d ago )

It is the best, it used to be FFVII for me. 3 years is a short time though, so I don't think a article like this is really necessary.

stupidusername149d ago

I agree. To me it might be the best game I've ever played only contested by TLOU and BOTW.

GamesMaster1982149d ago

Agree my second best game ever after Shenmue . That game just has too many memories for me for anything to ever beat . But there are other games right up there with the Witcher 3 for me also like The Last Of Us, MGS3, Silent Hill , Horizon and GOW to name a few.

Great games don't stop being great as time goes on bud, it'll remain exactly what it is till the end of time, even though the bar will be 1000x higher in generations to come.

I have better title: Why Chrono Trigger Is Still The Best RPG Of All Times Even After 23 Years?

Anyway, didn't know that 3 years is so long to deserve "even after" before it.

showtimefolks149d ago

Bluepoint needs to remaster or remake it

sampsonon149d ago

having a better experience playing God Of War, especially when t comes to the combat... its way better.

sampsonon149d ago

true, but my point stands

Vegamyster149d ago


Your point is irreverent to the topic of the article.

sampsonon149d ago

God Of War is an RPG.

can tell that most, if not all the people here are pc gamers and never played God Of War or Horizon. sad

slayernz149d ago

GOW is as much of an RPG as witcher in that you are playing the role of someone....a true RPG i want to be a mage/archer hybrid....not run around with a useless crossbow. witcher was a good action game, GOW is better

Vegamyster149d ago (Edited 149d ago )

GoW is a action game with RPG elements, it's not a full on RPG like the Witcher which has you shaping numerous stories with drastically different outcomes & scenarios ect.


Your role in the Witcher can be drastically different depending on the player, you can try and be the good guy, neutral, greedy, bad ect.

slayernz149d ago

vegamyster, cool so by your definition of an RPG then detroit become human is a full blown RPG as well? I choose the storyline and different outcomes, can be good/bad etc?

an RPG should be the above plus the ability to level my character as i see fit....if i want to be a rogue/mage/cleric/archer/warri or then i should be - not forced to the repetitive dull combat that is the witcher

Vegamyster149d ago

"GOW is as much of an RPG as witcher in that you are playing the role of someone"

You implied Geralt is given no choices and your just following his story which he's not, everyone playing will have a different experience storywise when playing it.

"cool so by your definition of an RPG then detroit become human is a full blown RPG as well? I choose the storyline and different outcomes, can be good/bad etc?"

That wasn't the full definition, it was a response to sampsonon. RPG means role playing game, it can be someone you make yourself in games like TeS or a set character in games like the Witcher or Kingdom Come Deliverance ect, you're pretending to be someone else and make decisions ranging from the story to utilizing other skills, gear, stats.

Why am I not surprised to see GOW mentioned in almost every articles on this site.

Comparing apples to oranges eh? Typical n4g comment.

ArchangelMike149d ago

But everyone knows that apples are better than oranges right? Riiight?


DVAcme149d ago

Apples and oranges, bud.

Imalwaysright149d ago

God of War is a hack n' slash. It just has RPG elements like many games out there the most known example being GTA5 but that doesn't make them RPGs.

@ slayernz Detroit is an adventure game.

GamesMaster1982149d ago

Whole different type of game bud nothing at all like each other . It’s like comparing telltales the walking dead to fifa 16 .
