What is the final verdict of TW3?

Does /v/ like it or hate it?
>>
>>322775368
Just got it, visually it's nice, always windy plus far too bendy trees is annoying though. Dialogue has been top notch so far can't fault it. Tracking/detective stuf is already grating given it's just click the highlighted area over and over. Nee to get to grips with what loot I need as im getting bore of picking up mountains of it. Combat is ok, I hope it gets better though because it feels far too sluggish. Overall 2hrs in im enjoying it but puzzled as to why it's so highly rated.

We all know Bloodborne is the real GOTY.
The only reason Bloodborne didn't win is because they didn't buy the reviews and the game is way to o hardcore for normal people.

Bloodborne was pretty meh m8. There's a reason why all the hype about the game died just one month after it's release.

It clrearly didn't deserved to be GOTY.

Played it on launch day. Was upset that I couldn't change the WASD controls (I use ESDF,) so I tried out a controller, then just stuck with it for the whole run.
Having to have customizable controls patched in is kind of weak, but other than that I loved it. Easily my favorite game of 2015.

It's a pretty good game.
But I guess it's too niche for most people since its gameplay is not as accessible as Bloodborne or Assassin's Creed.

Because it has best of all time world building and storytelling, that's why.

The gameplay is pretty good too, combat was satisfying and fun to play. Combat is not as interesting as Dragons Dogma for examples which deserved a better game for that good combat but it was pretty good. One of the best in ARPG's for sure, even though that's not saying much

Those shitters I tells ya.

Using flurry at all.

Stunlocking enemies forever with alt Yrden.

It's not a GoT ripoff, the original game is incredibly old.

It you spam attacks then your going to have a hard time (unless your playing on easy). Monsters will gang on you for spamming and humans will continue to block and then counterattack you if you spam. There is only one monster that I can think of that is spammable, and that's the first one you fight.

The game rewards you for blocking at the right time by letting you counterattack after.

The game is "deep" if you played it for more than 5 minutes.

Now you're getting it. Don't put any more effort into the argument than your opponent is. If they say "it's shit" it's perfectly valid for you to respond with "it's good", since he didn't back his claim up you shouldn't have to either.

1st: Witcher 3
2nd: Fallout 4
3rd: MGSV
The fuck? Fallout 4 and MGSV were garbage that sold only beacuse of devs telling lies whenever they could. I didn't even really liked Witcher 3 nor played BB since I don't have a PS4 but I can see why someone would enjoy those games and pick them as their GOTY but everything about F4 was garbage - poor optimization on both pc and consoles, shit gameplay, using a fucking years old engine for a next-gen game etc. and with MGSV it was literally doing same shit of extracting some prisoner over and over again hoping that next mission will finally be some good mission advancing plot.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying STOP LIKING WHAT I DON'T LIKE beacuse I don't mind it if someone likes those games, but they don't even come near GOTY by anything.

I just can't get into TW3.
The gameplay feels stiff as fuck, and that alone turns me off from the game.
The combat is not bad, it just feels boring and the animations are fucking ridiculous at how he spins the sword like he was a fan.

To be honest I liked more of W1's and W2's hub system, where you'd be able to roam around in manageable sized territory filling contracts and doing side missions, and proceed to fresh new area with the main plotline.

I agree with everyone in the thread critiquing TW3's combat, the difficulty is more from making sure you have the right oils and bombs than the fighting system being good, ranged enemies could fire arrows through trees and the spells don't reliably get cast it just all feels like it need seems polish to be enjoyable, good dialogue and gwent was fun though

It's a western game, which means that game design is the last priority. The focus is instead on creating an "immersive" experience with good presentation values. Being a good game, that is being challenging, entertaining and rewarding, is not even a concern.

Witcher 3 deserves to win the year. It's an enormous game, and well-polished; every quest gained and person you speak to feels different just for the sake of being unique. Voice acting is great, it looks great, combat still not perfect but satisfying and challenging at the higher difficulties. Disappointingly uninteresting King Of The Wild Hunt, I was expecting a bit more from Geralt's nemesis of three games, the first game used him much better. Loads of memorable moments throughout, and ends on a real high note (bad end notwithstanding).

Metal Gear Solid V has incredible gameplay, which succeeds despite deviating hard from the usual MGS formula. Doesn't have the advantage of just being an improved sequel to MGS4, it really is a wholly new game from the ground up. Unfortunately, it loses too many points for being so obviously unfinished to win, but I'd give it a deserved second.

Bloodborne is a close third. It feels like a real evolution to the Souls formula, something we failed to get from DS2. As usual the controls are tight, the level design is intricate and it's dripping with atmosphere. My main complaint is that BB feels quite lean; it's a shorter game with less bosses and weapons, instead relying on the unsatisfying chalice dungeons. The DLC goes a long way to remedy this, but I would've preferred to see the weapons it adds distributed more evenly across the main story.

I don't know why Fallout 4 is winning anything, it was a buggy mess and they really fucked the dog with the dialogue. Radiant quests are back. Base building is pleasantly easy to use, but ultimately pointless as invading enemies can just spawn wherever the fuck. Companions are unbearably shallow, just giving up their life story if you pick enough locks or mod your gun enough in their presence. It scratched my explore-and-scavenge itch, but looking back the only things it has over New Vegas are improved graphics and gunplay.

>>
>>322788228
The entire game is a grinding fest.
You just keep hitting r1 to kill the same exact monsters countless times until you reach the next lamp.
That's why Witcher 3 is regarded as a better game, because they know a video game should be all about fun, entertaining gameplay.
Most modern AAA games too focus on making grimdark atmosphere and deep story and forgot about fun.
>>
>>322787164
They just replaced script tools to add new items and replace models - shit like that.

Nothing planned for tools to create new areas or any actual fucking content.
>>
>>322788606
Dark Souls is challenging and engaging.

That said, Dark Souls' gameplay isn't just its combat. It's also about dungeon crawling and avoiding traps, and this melds with the combat. It doesn't need some DMC-tier complex combat system so long as it works well and is engaging with the other gameplay elements.

Witcher has nothing but combat and walking around accepting quests in an open world like it's a fucking MMO.
>>
>>322788852
Not sure if ironic because it's the exact opposite.
>>
>>322788606
Enemies are much more aggressive in dark souls and there's more weapon move sets. Enemies in the Witcher 3 just look at you after doing an attack or knocking you down, which is sort of dumb. As a trade off though you get invincibility frames in Bloodborne/Dark Souls and you don't in The Witcher 3, games would be stupid hard without them.
>>
>>322788779
That's a terrible opinion and I'm just going to regard it as bait.
>>
>>322788368
>mah atmosphere
Even if they add 200% more grimdark the game would still be boring if the gameplay is shit.
Bloodborne's gameplay is boring because it's too easy - it lacks.any challenge this make it not rewarding at all.
What's the point of progress if most enemies are more or less the same?
What's the point of avoiding hits if it has regen hp and they shower blood vials on you?
What's the point of.getting good if you have almost unlimited Blood Echoes to upgrade your character without any consequences?
>>
>>322788852
I like them both desu.

You sound like you haven't played the game though. he's a swordsman who does magic and has a crossbow and can use traps, that's what the combat is. And using these things to defeat different enemies is the appeal.
>>
>>322789610
Are you implying that planting magic traps on the ground is not part of the combat?
>>
>>322788606
In Witcher 3 enemies come in groups and are much faster/more aggressive.
Different enemeis required different tactics/signs to deal with.
Sometime you need preparion for stronger monsters.
Bloodborne is more casual hack and slash type. You can beat most enemies by hitting r1 3 times. If that's not easy enough they give you a bunch of heath items to instantly refill tour HP.
By the time you reached Forbidden Wood you'd have 100 blood vials in your storage.
>>
>>322789409
As a Bloodborne player i'd say this is very true. But I still like that game though.

>>322789409
I mean your not wrong. The game had some tough bosses though, especially the dlc though. I still found it enjoyable.

>>322789014
I've played Demons Souls, Dark Souls, and Dark Souls II (I don't have a PS4 because I'm not retarded so I haven't played BB) and I think the combat systems are pretty similar to the Witcher 3. You plan, look for openings and attack when you can, except it's a bit quicker. Maybe you should play the Witcher at a higher difficulty if that's your problem with it.

Because Witcher 3 has nothing to it outside of combat, unless you count roaming around the areas that don't have enemies looking for quest NPCs to be gameplay.

Bloodborne has dungeons, smart level design and enemies that are designed for the areas they are found in.

Witcher has you getting ambushed by wolves and clumsily dispatching them as you traverse the shitty open world looking for markers on your map.

Wew, how's that ADHD treating you? I love the Souls series and rarely play games for the writing in TW3 is great and it has a solid combat system on top of that. AND infinitely more people played TW3. That's why it won so much.

I haven't played Bloodborne so I can't

>>322791309
Demon's Souls was PS3 exclusive and got plenty of GOTY awards. Bloodborne wasn't skipped over because it is too hardcore but because the Souls series is a rehash series and anyone who isn't a hardcore fan of the Souls series is progressively less interested in each entry. Casual (I don't mean that the way /v/ means it) fans want something new.

You know, i go in babyborne threads all the time and point out how the game you all claim is the true "deserving" goty has the same shitty combat style. Every mob and boss is dodge diagonally and attack until out of stamina. You can also cheese most with oil and molotovs, just as dumb as anything you can come up with in W3.

W3 at least excels at what it is known and expected to deliver on (settings, characters, and storytelling) and has varying monster styles while bb requires you to read a wiki or some 100 page writeup of pure speculation to have any context of what's going on and nearly every boss is a clone of the last spindly hairy bloody beast or multi-limbed/tentacled ayylmao.
