The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt review
Exceptional

Time: 205h
205 hours later, finally beat it! Played through both Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine as well as what had to be every side quest in the base storyline. The main story was great, but I have to agree with what a lot of people thought, which was that the Blood and Wine expansion was just as good if not better than the main story. Toussaint and the many additions (grandmaster armor, mutagens, Corvo Bianco, etc.) all played into a fantastic ending to the Witcher 3. On my playthrough, I think I got the best ending: saving Syanna, killing Dettlaff, and despite Regis being exiled, Geralt and him part amicably which I liked. The ending was a nice cap to the main story. Hearts of Stone was good as well - Ogeird was a character, and Gaunter O’Grimm certainly made things interesting. Enjoyed all the different areas, Skellige and Toussaint being my favorite (except for the fact that so many points of interest in Skellige were in the water and required a boat). There were certainly parts towards the end where I was tired of continuing to play...but I’m glad I finished it. One of the best games I’ve played, and certainly managed to keep my attention for many, many hours.

The Witcher 3 is by far my favorite game I've ever played.  There are no words that accurately describe the feeling this game gives you when you play it for the first time.  The multiple astounding themes this game presents from politics to family, from war to love, and from loyalty to differing beliefs, they all make The Witcher 3 feel grounded in reality while still being a fantasy game.  What makes this game so great is its astounding writing.  Every quest you do, every character you encounter, every monster you fight, feels real in the sense that the characters and stories are never two dimensional.  Every character has a story to tell, and the characters will present you with tough decisions that will make you question your morals.  Another thing that makes this game so exceptional is its characters, specifically the main cast.  Every character in this game is fleshed out with hours of content that make you care about them.  Every character has their own identity and personality that makes for some of the best chemistry between characters a game has ever seen.  From Geralt's charisma to Yennefer's sarcasm from Zoltan's wit to Vezemir's wisdom, all make for a memorable cast that people can invest and sympathize with on a deeper level.  Now it might sound like I am praising this game to no end, but I would like to state that before going into the game, I had a very closed mind.  From what I saw through videos and from what I heard from friends, I thought the game was going to be too hardcore and another generic unrealistic fantasy game with no relatability to the player.  So this game had to fight against an (unfair) negative bias I had and still managed to not only surpass my low expectations but it managed to climb the ranks of my favorite games.  Genuinely, the only thing I didn't like about the game was after I beat all the main content and DLC, I felt a void because the story and characters I got invested in had to come to an end. All in all, I definitely recommend this game to anyone who likes a really good singleplayer story game.

Oh boy oh boy. How long has it been since the Witcher 3 has been released. Trust me when I say this but the Witcher 3 is one of the best games I have ever played in my entire life, and that’s something to say.

Now I’m not gonna talk a lot about the game since it has been released for 5 years already, but all I’m going to say is this game is a must buy!!! With an amazing story, and an enticing and awesome rpg system, you just can’t say no to this game. This game is really amazing, how you can craft potions and at which fight you use them really adds to the experience. Before you go in to a fight, you have to be fully prepared by doing quests and what not, all of them really amazing and with great variety, never boring! Honestly, I think this game is a must have for Gamers, it is probably one of the best games this decade, and really revolutionized RPG games.

One of the best realized fictional settings ever. Absolutely worth the price of admission if you're into worldbuilding at all. Oh, and that's just one aspect of a beautiful, multifaceted game with so many positives it's impossible to list.

9/10 - alalay laley lalaley layleley aaaaaaaaaa
Simply outstanding.
Comparing with Skyrim, the Elder Scroll, this game is an upgrade in many aspects. Beautiful graphics, catching story, versatile open world, cutting-edge AI and plethora of friends/foes/missions. I absolutely loved every minute of game play. Because of brutal violence, sexual references, profanity, etc. not at all recommended for people below 18, and I'm serious here. Once you finish the game, you really feel an emptiness and wish that there was more. For those really craving, you must try the expansion pack Blood and Wine.

One of the best RPG's I've ever played. Even side quest felt like they had some kind of purpose. 
story is fun, characters are fun, combat is shallow. last thing i did before uninstalling was stunlock a griffin by left-clicking over and over for about 2 minutes until it finally died. i may come back one day and try this again with mods
