OT: The Official Video Game Discussion Thread
So The Witcher 3, the first of two summer blockbuster games being released this year, was just released today. I pre-ordered my copy from Best Buy and the exclusive steelbook looks fantastic and I'm currently listening to the free soundtrack that came with the game and it's EPIC.

For those unaware of the game, it plays a bit like Red Dead Redemption and Skyrim with the lore a bit like Game Of Thrones and the devs have made it where you don't have to play the first two in the series to jump right in.

It is on my steam wishlist. If it is anything like Skyrim or Dragon Age then it should be a hit. However, I am buried deep in GTA V at the moment and wouldn't have time to take it in.

I got it last night, but only got to play it for a short time. I'm impressed so far, much better than Skyrim by all measures.

I've never understood the fascination with Skyrim/Bethesda games in general. Normally they look like crap, play like rigid planks of wood, and by and large, are more "farm and grind" than any other games this side of WoW. I'm way more partial to the Dragon Age/Witcher area of fantasy RPGs...that being said, my favorite pure open world games for sheer discovery/entertainment value are the Just Cause games.

Fallout is the best Bethesda series by far. This morning I popped Witcher 3 in since I didn't have time yesterday and told myself I would only play it for like 10 minutes. I ended up playing it for TWO hours...

I have such a backlog though that I'm going to try to power through the rest of the DR3 DLC and the rest of TEW before I get too far in the other games I currently have.

Luckily I never trade in open world games so I have plenty of time for DA:I, GTAV (already beat it on 360, but not the One yet), SofM, W3, etc. but I need to get some of them finished before Fallout 4 consumes my life haha.

I never really liked Fallout for the exact same reasons as the Elder Scrolls series, plus with the game-breaking VATS add-on, I always felt like it took no skill whatsoever to play, and if I have a game like that, I at least want something cool to look at or entertaining to move through, and the Fallout 3/Fallout: New Vegas maps/stories were pretty awful.

I love the games that you just get lost in, and I never could do that with the Bethesda games, since it always felt like work.

I liked VATS because it turned it into sort of a turn based game. Now that I'm a more seasoned gamer now who prefers to hack and slash a bit more it'll be more interesting how I play the game.
