Is Witcher 3 the general consesus GOTY 2015 of /v/ and the rest of the world?
It's winning most of the GOTY awards and got pretty great reviews, and every time I see a GOTY-Strawpoll here, Witcher is at the top by a considerable margin.
Is Witcher 3 your GOTY, and if not, what is?
Also general Witcher thread I guess.
Yeah, it's my GOTY. I feel like some of the people criticizing the combat for veing absolutley horrendous have not played it/played it on a low difficulty.
It's a bit better Arkham fighting system, and /v/ doesn't shit on Arkham combat nearly as much as they do on Witcher
Oh fuck off with your bullshit
>artifficial difficulty with broken mechanics and controls
>thinks its improved because of a fdifficulty setting that just increases the damage

Honestly, witcher 3 is my goty.
There are two reasons:
1. Better than anything else ive played this year
2. Best overall gaming experience ive enjoyed in a long time
People bash witcher so i gotta ask, what games this year outclass it as a goty candidate?
It's the big winner of 2015.
Bloodborne is better, though.
The game takes place after the books, certain characters (e.g. triss) were mentioned barely in the books.
The story was told in maybe an 8/10 way in the books, but id say the game tells its story in a 10/10 way
Wait, your "points"?
Your points are "The gameplay is bad".
And I don't know how I'm supposed to counter "This gameplay is bad"
I mean, it's not broken. It's not too easy, yet not broken in a way that makes it frustrating to play. The hitboxes were a bit off, but that's mostly fixed. The hits are of consistent length, and it takes skill to win some enemies, especially in groups.
I actually liked the short stories, the novels, eh not so much. I found the game exceptionally atmospheric, but that's really subjective.
What are these broken mechanics? What is this artificial difficulty? What's broken with the controls?
Question shitlords....my brother bought me Witcher III for my birthday and I still haven't even downloaded it. I'm a huge souls fan. I couldn't stand Witcher II. I think I'm going to be disappointed and I will disappoint my brother by not playing it. What do?
Try it. The game is a lot better than Witcher 2, but I guess it's not everybody's cup of tea.
Play it until you get to Velen and go into the Bloody Baron quest. If you don't like it even with the Bloody Baron, the game's not for you.
you have to pause the game to apply useless oils that don't do anything
if you gonna hit something anywas why do you have to pause the game before you do it?
also the combat is magnet based , then why in the actual fuck there is a lock on button if you make the combat magnet based?
also geralt is retarded because when you want to hit enemy 1 he thinks you want to hit enemy 3
the combat is a mess , the balance of the game is a disaster
its glichy and even with the patches is still unplayable because of the horrible pacing
2 hours cutscenes , 3 hours of walking and 10 minutes of clunky combat
Bravo cdproject red
game of the year
Yeah pretty much.
The only people consistently disputing its status as GOTY are Bloodborne fanboys that are assblasted about the spotlight being taken away from their yearly Demon's Souls rehash.
in b4 "Shallow combat/I spam Quen on the easiest difficulty why is this game so easy" posts.
Though by the time I make this post I imagine this thread is going to be full of these posts anyway.
I don't know what to tell you.
The menu system is a bit annoying, I'll give you that.
The lock on button is for the people that want a lock on.
I've always been able to hit the enemy I want, you sure it's not just you being shitty?
I don't agree with the balance of the game being a disaster, except maybe for Igni being OP.
It's in no way unplayable, as proved by the people who have played it you cunt.
When did these 2 hours of cutscenes happen? When did you have to walk for 3 hours?
I actually think that Witcher 3 does infodumps and storydumps almost perfectly. But obviously we disagree on everything, so don't bother answering.
i ma a veteran souls fan and i know how good combat works
witcher has shitty unresponsive , broken combat mechanics and is boring as hell because it is also unimaginative
how this mess of a simulator got game of the year is beyond my understanding
by the way its story is like sherk + lord of the rings
>implying i am not
here is some proof
this is from my playthrough
this, dark souls isn't that imaginative when it comes to combat mechanism, and it isn't even hard, once you have a grip on how to fight.
I don't get why people are all proud of being a souls veteran, it's just a random game, which only has a shitty difficulty curve, but once you understand how to fight, it's far from being hard.
2 hour is exaguration idiot
I mean it has bad pacing
you walk for 10 minutes then you watch 5 minutes of cutscene then you walk another 10 minutes and then you fight with terrible combat mechanics for 3 minutes
repeat this for 60 hours
