For all fans of the RPG genre in gaming, there is no better game than The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, with the DLC of Heart of Stone and Blood and Wine. The game has become world famous and some even say that it brought a revolution to the gaming community. It was developed by Project Red, a Polish company that owns the Witcher franchise.
What Makes the Game So Awesome?
One of the main reasons that the game got such a good critical acclaim is the fact that it is based on the novel series written by Andrzej Sapkowski. The game follows the life of Geralt of Rivia, a witcher. For those of you that don’t know what that is. Witchers are monster fighters that gain special abilities thru a ritual mutation that makes them superhuman.
Geralt is a complex character that has two sides to his personality, he is both good and bad. Depending on how you want to interpret him. He carries two swords, one made from steel and the other one from silver. The first one is used for killing human monsters, the other one is used for killing real monsters. During the game, you have the opportunity to influence the outcome of the story and believe me you will be surprised and sad if you don’t pay attention.
The storyline is set in a fantastical land, torn by war. You come into the middle of everything and as you finish the quests you will discover more about Geralt and his mega interesting life. Besides meeting the witcher, you will also encounter some of his friends. They are all colorful characters, with authentic life stories. Some of them you will hate, some you will fall in love with.
While you play the game, you are immersed in a wonderful world and story, and sometimes you feel more like you are watching a series or reading an epic fantasy novel, then like playing a video game. One of the reasons I think this game became so popular is the incredible story, and just generally the emotional intensity of the game. Even thou the level of character customization is limited since you are playing as a developed character, the game does not loose on its appeal.
What can we Expect in the Future?
The game franchise has ended, and even though the fans are crying for a fourth part, there is little hope that that will happen. The game is so big that I think it will be played for years to come. The problem is in the fact that this game is unmatched, and I cannot imagine how can someone outdo them. The game will certainly make people want to outdo it but I think we will have to wait for a couple of years before that happens.
