The Witcher 3 is my favourite rpg of all time and is right at the top of the list for favourite game of this generation. It takes a bit of time to get into because there are a lot of systems you need to understand, and it takes a bit of time to fully appreciate the world they have created. Once I got there it was absolutely fantastic. The rpg upgrade mechanisms are unique and well done. The equipment customization and enhancements are plentiful when you fully utilize potions and oils etc. But when it comes down to a single greatest feat it is the world building. The detail in this game is incredible. I’ve never had so much fun in a fantasy setting. Final Score: A++
I joined this website just so I could rate Control. Quantum Break was ok, just ok, and it got a novel and TV episodes meanwhile this lovechild between X-Files and Men In Black (while Eyes Wide Shut was watching from behind a curtain (that didn't exist and yet was in the room)) didn't? Ugh, not cool, Remedy. And yet very cool. You learn and explore with Faden as she does know more than you but only by so much and the things/events you witness/engage that are meant to be hidden from the outside/real world are so strange and compelling that the aesthetic and narrative delivery devices more than make up for samey shooting. I'm starting to think Control is better than Max Payne in terms of what I respect Remedy for making more and I can't fucking wait for the DLC. If only just to watch/be Faden navigate through the Oldest House some more. Also, like QB, 80% of the writing is found in the bevy of optional collectibles which are honestly worth reading if you've 1000'd the game and need more. In a year where we got REmake 2, Ace Combat 7, Toejam and Earl and other great titles, I feel like I was proudest of experiencing this weird, weird thing.
