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.
