The Verge: "When The Witcher 3 came out in 2015, it completely redefined what I expected from an open-world video game. CD Projekt Red’s fantasy epic was not only huge, but it was filled with the kinds of details that made its world feel surprisingly real. Its structure made it feel like I was experiencing hero Geralt’s life, instead of being pushed through a typical video game story. It became the game I compared all other blockbuster games to, my reference point against which all other huge open-worlds were judged.
With the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 today, I think that’s going to change. "
