After such a complex story, The Witcher 3's last boss just isn't original enough
The ending was always going to be somewhat disappointing, the true adventure and magic of the game comes through the smaller encounters that bring the world to life. Although not a terrible story by any stretch, the main quest line came up short, in my opinion, next to the more engaging side quests, but it was interesting to see the plot of the books extend into the video game universe The DLC ended the story on a much better note, particularly Blood and Wine. The game was and is utterly brilliant.
I played through the main game for 3 years and finished Hearts of Stone and it was great. Going there Blood and Wine now and sits awesome, really loving how the new landscape looks! One of my all time favorite games, ever!
The oven decision had me just as panicked as Geralt in the scene. Absolutely great moment!
I liked having a straight up evil enemy to defeat at the end, by that point I'd had enough of complex grey areas and was ready to smite some bad guys to save the day. I think Death March is the best way to play the game and it was not an easy fight for me, I was dodging around that arena like a maniac but it was a good fight and a worthy end to a great game.
Witcher 3 needs actual gameplay in general.
Witcher 3 has more gameplay and content than most games this gen
Wait, Skyrim needs this article too. Here it should go like this... "After 8 hours of gameplay I've walked more than theres been dialogue or actual combat and now the final boss is a dragon?!.... How original can you get?" But we all know Skyrim shines from the side quest not the main story. The Witcher however in my opinion shined in both of those aspects. I also enjoy the witcher 3s more complex combat over Skyrim, but I understand that not everyone likes the style. Some prefer the simplicity of Skyrim... And there's nothing wrong with that.
That’s been a lingering issue with many modern AAA titles.
I loved all 3 of the final bosses. The leader of the wild hunt, Iris's husband, and Dettlaff. Iris's husband was actually pretty dang tough. I wish I would've tried and gotten the achievement for taking out all his clones - Death March of course.
Man I loved, loved Hearts of Stone! I enjoyed the creepy story so much! My wife got a kick out of it as well. She likes watching Uncharted, Detroit, TLOU etc but it's harder for her to get into open world games but The Wild Hunt, Spider-Man and HZD had her attention.
Ooo I bet Detroit is a fun game to watch. Remember the grave digger guy from hearts of stone?! I made an amv of me fighting that caretaker sub boss if you feel like checking it out Hardiman here's the link. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Uhh no it doesn’t. The game ended just perfectly fine with its final boss. I wouldn’t have changed it in any other way.
The heart of stone dlc had a good boss.
Hell yes it did! Did you manage to beat all of Olgierd's clones on Death March? It seemed too hard for me I didn't bother.
Yeah that would have been a monumental victory without using cheap whirl.
for the witt alone , this game ruled , still haven't completed it.
This is a 3+ year old game and already a 100% know games industry declared masterpiece it's time to move on.
