    Having a fixed person can seriously misfire if the character is unsympathetic. Plus, if like in TW and Gothic you only offer people a male character some female players won't play it (at least Mass Effect gives you a choice).
    I'd rather play totally open-world like in TES or Fallout - just wish Bethesda would spend more time polishing the NPCs and towns (Gothic 2 only had one town but it was probably the most realistic one I ever encountered in an RPG). Novigrad in TW3 looks quite detailed too from the videos.
    Having said that, Thief's Garrett was also unsympathetic but I still enjoyed the first two so it is not clear-cut.

    It doesn't really help though!

    Well Witchers are sterile after the trial of grasses

    Fair points, which my wife also agrees with and she also prefers the Bioware style for the same reasons.

    I don't, because the Bioware approach is too over-the-top in some ways for me - it's a bit too formulaic and obvious. Much of the Witcher series is more muted emotionally, but there are some very subtle shades in there that I appreciate, and when it does pull something emotional out of the bag the impact is all the more for it being against a bleaker backdrop.

    You will know if you've come across this scene for example:



    Just look at the emotion in that face. And that's just one of many.

    Hands down the best game I've ever played, the music, art, voice acting, quests and story - plus CDPR being awesome and giving out tons of free content - everything is borderline perfect.

    Wholeheartedly agree. I completed it utterly three or four months ago, and the more I think about it the more I rate it. The tidiest, most polished and excellent game I've probably ever played.

    Each edition of the 'Witcher' has been significant improvement upon the previous edition and W1 starting point, was pretty good against its peers of the day.
