Why Is the Witcher 3 Great?

October 30, 2021

Last week, I went on a very passionate tangent about the
failings of Cyberpunk 2077 on account of CD Projekt Red mishandling this
project. Cyberpunk had been hyped up for years, and many, including
myself, immediately compared it to the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, upon its

I remember the first time I opened the Witcher 3. I
was in quarantine, I was sad, and I would block out any and all sun light. I
found a cheap version of the game on G2A and I was desperate to feel literally
anything at all. What I felt the first time I delved into the story was
astonishment. it’s easy to tell that the people behind this game really did
care about the story they were working with and the characters and establishing
them, something I really did not feel when I played Cyberpunk. Geralt,
is a very likable character while still having his edge. You really do feel
like you are in his world, and you feel immersed into it further by his
dialogue and the story choices throughout the game. The Witcher 3 uses multi-level
storytelling, meaning of certain decision at one point in the game can impact
the entire outcome at the very end. There really is a sense of importance when
it comes to picking one decision over the other because of the way their
storytelling is implemented.

On top of that, you have the other characters who all have
their own interesting backstories and motives and there isn’t a single one that
gets boring or annoying. I personally really liked Keira Metz, Yennefer, Triss,
and of course, Ciri. I could also appreciate the establishing world that we
were given for these characters, as it very well established them in that

Finally, what I liked about The Witcher the most was
that it was so free range and that there were so many side quests to do that it
never got boring being within this world. with there being several territories,
hidden sites, and treasures to steal, oddly be enough, I found that the most
intriguing part of the game. I liked how it had an impact on where I ended up
later in the game, whether that be level wise, item wise, or skill wise.

It’s hard not to compare these two games to each other as
they were from the same company. But in all fairness, CD Projekt Red knew what
they were getting into, and it’s hard not to acknowledge the stark contrast in
likeability between these two projects.
