Seems sonyponies don't have such shit taste after all.
I have a friend who only plays games with instant gratification and fast-paced gameplay. He didn't like W3 at first, kept a break, and when he went back he saw the light and now he agrees W3 is goty. That is, you gotta give it a chance.
Everybody else I've heard of playing the game have liked it too.
>sony fans are casuals
>casuals like story games
>this is somehow surprising
I played it only after completing the main questline. You may miss some gwent cards and a few gwent games, nothing else. I don't regret holding off, it would have disturbed the game pace for me.
It's funny because most Witcher threads are made by people who hate it :^)
Nah it gets good after you get out of White Orchard.
It's the opposite for me. I liked 1 the most, really good atmosphere, interesting lore, fairly down to earth for the most part, shit makes sense in it.
The newer games just added prettier graphics. The gameplay got different, but no better. Now there's shit that makes no sense only added in for mass appeal, lots of cliché fairytale stuff with kings, dragons, princesses and that awful open world. 3 especially is a pretty huge disappointment after how much the devs boasted about it. It feels more like a factory-made product than a game with soul like the first one did.
>He actually enjoyed Empty Open World: The Game and it's completely retarded combat
They could have improved it so fucking much, but they stuck with that retarded shit. How can anyone say that brain dead shit is fun?
there are no dragons in tw3, and i don't know how much of fairy tale is killing 2 kings, and the only princes in the whole game was a damn viking princes so fuck of, i agree with the huge open world some of the quest felt more like a chore ratter than part of the game
But I have :^)
The fast travel is great, but the world is full of
>forest with monsters
>unimportant 4-5 house "village"
>open field with monsters
>a few towns actually worth a damn outside of the main city in the middle
The game was boring as shit. Get over it.
Only if you stick to the main quest. And even then, the design is much worse. Massive map with no more than 4-5 interesting spots in it, and the rest is just littered with that completely worthless copy paste white triangle shit and Oblivion randomized loot. Awful.
Can't say I'm surprised you have a shit taste considering you watch japanese kids' cartoons.
Yes there wasn't something EPIC on every square meter of the map. Instead the map actually feels like you're in a real world, Geralt runs fast as fuck, horse is even faster, so the distances get nullified, and lastly there's still more content than in any other recent game, even unmarked quests in many places.
Gothic 2 wasn't littered with shit either and /v/ likes it.
The environments alone make exploring worth it. The world is beautiful as fuck, it's a good substitute for going on a stroll in the woods. Also I don't even remember there being many side quests in W1.
Half of the side quests in W1 were "kill five of these and collect your reward"
The other half involve running back and forth across most of the map
I have no idea why some faggots think Witcher 1 is the best in the series
If it was something like Xenoblade you'd have a point but this is just medieval Europe you've already seen in a million different media.
>Also I don't even remember there being many side quests in W1.
Not sure how this is relevant to the current discussion but it had a good amount. In line with something you'd expect out of an RPG of its size.
Those weren't side quests though. They were monster contracts and even they varied a lot, just as much as killing one monster realistically can.
The game even separated big side quests and contracts for you, yet you're still too dumb to tell them apart.
But anon, monogatari is the last thing youd ever show a child.
Also i dropped witcher 2 after like 10 hours of dissatisfied combat, why would i play this? I dont care how many fucking awards its gets its by the same developer...
Well you don't need to play it obviously. I'm quite indifferent. I'd just appreciate if you didn't shitpost about it without better knowledge when the care put into the making of the game is obvious to anybody who's played it and you should at least understand why somebody might like the game.
why is every witcher 3 thread either drones circlejerking over their awards (when even tlou or skyrim got more) or
>the baron did nothing wrong
toddposting and mgsV threads fished after a few weeks following their release (and at least there were some funny threads), bloodborne has its lore/weapons comfy threads.
Nah. We've had plenty of good threads. You should know you tried to derail them.
Once BaW comes out we'll have good threads again.
>toddposting and mgsV threads fished after a few weeks following their release
Because they were boring and lame.
And the majority of Witcher threads these days are made by people assblasted that W3 won. Why can't you guys just move on?
I suppose you walk in the woods often do you? It's not as cool as it sounds to somebody who's lived his life in the city.
Nope, we get back to the point where
was flat out wrong and the actual side quests in W3 were miles better than the ones in W1
>why is every witcher 3 thread either drones circlejerking over their awards (when even tlou or skyrim got more) or
>the baron did nothing wrong
i can agree with half of it, its true the threads are annoying even for some one that liked the game but the tlou and skyrim threads where much worse it was like if every normie that found 4chan on reddit decided that those games were so great that they should post about it every fucking minute about it and its awards, and the TW3 are always about faggots that keep posting about the game and faggots that shit on the game even if its clear that they either didn't play it our played only the the intro and their answer to everything is "the game is shit and im too intelligent to answer you about your shitty game"
and fuck it was like that even before the game was launched, at some point i actually belived that EA was paying people to shit on tw3
>The 3 or 4 "actual side quests"
Holy shit you are delusional. All the quests marked as side quests are better than W1 side quests, and you pull the "but there are also contracts as additional content" card, which somehow proves W3 side quests are as bad as W3 quests
And you tell me to follow the discussion, lol
Of course Witcher 3 won, it's casual as fuck for the masses
We all know Bloodborne is the undisputed GOTY 2015, it's a masterpiece
However, if everyone loved Witcher 3 so much then why was DS3 voted most anticipated game of 2016? Wouldn't something equally as shit such as ME: Andromeda be more to these idiots' tastes?
>But you missing that one was no doubt why it was free from shitposting ;)
im not here 24/24
i saw one about favorite gear, and it had like 6 replies before being archived.
bloodborne gear threads are always way more active.
but please, go on with that passive-agressive attitude of yours
But most of the threads are blatant false flags by people assravaged that W3 won awards. They're made using the same image and with the same OP:
>I hate this why did it win?
>What was so good about this?
>Suck it Bloodbornefags
>People like story over actual gameplay now
The last one is particularly telling since /v/ has always gone with Story over Gameplay for most RPGs. It's why Morrowind and ME1 are so loved even though they play like ass.
>I suppose you walk in the woods often do you?
I used to aimlessly wonder around the Pine Barrens alone back when I was a kid for hours at a time trying to track down animals and shit. It was pretty fucking fun.
>However, if everyone loved Witcher 3 so much then why was DS3 voted most anticipated game of 2016? Wouldn't something equally as shit such as ME: Andromeda be more to these idiots' tastes?
Not everyone participates in /v/'s retarded shitposting wars. And those of us with a PS4 get to play both W3 and Bloodborne, so we get to like both.
>W3 side quests are as bad as W3 quests
Only part that's correct, son.
>you tell me to follow the discussion
Well considering you can't even remember my words, let alone your own, what else am I supposed to tell you? "It's okay to be dumb as fuck, you'll just have to try hard to not be this stupid?" This is not a hugbox, sweet little anon.
I generally avoid threads for games I don't own. I only came to this one to comment on the ranking blog. Of course I'm happy to shitpost with the witcherfags who couldn't help but shitpost in retaliation to my opinion.
>Of course Witcher 3 won, it's casual as fuck for the masses
there's literally a mode for story only, a good portion of their player target was the mentioned.
im pretty sure a good portion played it as an interactive GoT-like series, it doesnt offer much gameplay-wise either to keep someone interested only on that aspect for 200hrs, loot and character progression/powerups are weak as well
>mfw just finished main quest today
>10 days played
With all its numerous flaws - this game is damn amazing and shits on pretty much everything I've played in this category over the last years.
And considering its scope and the level of detail it still managed to keep, its better than most other games too.
Its extremely fucking impressive considering its a slavshit team's third goddamn game ever and they released the first in 2007.
I mean jesus fuck Crytek released Crysis in the same year and look where the fuck have they fallen now, each game worse (in all aspects) than the last and nearly bankrupt.
Fallout 3 was 2008 and look at Fallout 4? Betrayed everything FO3 did wel and FO3 already betrayed everything the first fallouts did.
>Only part that's correct, son.
I'm sure you're intelligent enough to understand
>Well considering you can't even remember my words, let alone your own, what else am I supposed to tell you? "It's okay to be dumb as fuck, you'll just have to try hard to not be this stupid?" This is not a hugbox, sweet little anon.
I'd still like you to point out the logical error I made, because I never made one as far as I'm concerned. You said W3 side quests are bad like W1 side quests and I proved you wrong.
What the fuck are you babbling about? Did you quote the wrong posts?
I still haven't heard any argument from you that would justify your retarded first post >>323831614
Side quests in W3 were better, fact. Would it make you happier if the optional monster quests weren't available in W3?
Does that 2 mil count the bundles as well? Even so that's fucking pitiful
What in fucks name do these people buy the platform for? Fucking uncharted?
When a fucking TLOU remaster sells more than what's probably the best (I say probably cuz I haven't played it yet) SONY exclusive since SOTC then you know something is fucking wrong
No, I quoted the right posts. Are you actually illiterate and it's simply beyond your limits to follow a written conversation, or are you just really really stupid and it doesn't matter regardless of format?
They just buy it because it's the new generation and they're supposed to, and they love gaming
Others who buy it at least have rational motives but on the other hand they support shitty industry practices
a fairly hard action only game with no difficulty settings against a story driven game that plays by itself cranking down the difficulty, letting you enjoy it as a tv series; i wonder who'd be the most popular.
what do you think?
sonyponies like their games at 24fps and with no gameplay after all
>remember what _I_ said
>quotes my post
Yeah nah, you are the one who's incapable
Also at least counter this
>Side quests in W3 were better, fact. Would it make you happier if the optional monster quests weren't available in W3?
instead of trying to attack my credibility so desperately
whew lad, was that not supposed to be the xbox crowd?
>Others who buy it at least have rational motives but on the other hand they support shitty industry practices
You mean buying for exclusives? Cuz I did that with ps3 and 360 and will do it with ps4 and wii u I guess, I cant help it if they hold games I want hostage
wouldn't they find the talking a bit boring though? Because there's A LOT of fucking talk in between action sections of witcher 3
Either way this really weirds me out, I mean Witcher 3 is my favourite action RPG since gothic 2 but fuck, them picking it over a ps4 exclusive just seems... off
probably true, DeS especially seems to be niche as fuck even here, 9/10 people that try to discuss it reveal that they haven't played it in 5 words
>there's still more content than in any other recent game
as a gaming enthusiast, you'd better seek little but good content instead of a a fairly large amount of decent/mediocre content watered in 200hrs of game.
we're already playing many games a year after all.
also mind you the "a lot of content in an open world" is beginning to be quite overused
>You mean buying for exclusives? Cuz I did that with ps3 and 360 and will do it with ps4 and wii u I guess, I cant help it if they hold games I want hostage
Yeah, well the cold fact is that as long as exclusives sell, they'll keep happening. They're not a good thing for anybody after all.
I hate the fuckking series with a passion, is fuckking dull and boring and bland
ITS FUCKING GENERIC GARBAGE WITH NO REDEEMING QUALITIES.
And as far as I know the first 2 are almost unplayable shit, don't know about the third, I think it's playable just very dull and garbage
No, it's "remember when you were too fucking stupid to understand what I even wrote" and then I quoted the post in question. It seems you really are illiterate.
It's not a fact, you dumb little shit. It's an opinion. An opinion I share. Witcher 3 does have better "side activities" (hoping that doesn't trigger you late developed contracts autism) when it comes to that really small 10% that's not just cookie cutter worthless shit in the lifeless boring open world. Just like TW1 has good ones and poor ones. The issue here that you don't seem to grasp is that claiming something like >>323831229 and then moving the goalposts with the contract shit which you filed them under side quests yourself is fucking retarded.
I know but people wont just stop buying them so as long as consoles that have games I want exist I'll have to buy them
If it makes you feel any better though I mostly pick em up after piracy is possible
Dude, nice opinions and all
>Not even sonyggers could get Bloodborne GOTY
Keep it, my PC is fine.
actually its extremely easy to change between builds and keep it varied, at least that's what I did
And pacing helps a lot, unless you hoard all monster hunts and do them all at once it feels kinda varied
Furthermore you dont need to do all minor side quests, fuck knows I loved the game but stopped trying to do everything at the 150 hour mark
>>323831229 is not even my post.
>that really small 10% that's not just cookie cutter
is false. There were dozens of side quests, and all of them were better than that, some were exceptional.
>Just like TW1 has good ones and poor ones
It has far less good side quests, most didn't even compete with W3 monster contracts, let alone side quests.
You even agreed W3 has better "side activities", so what's the point in bashing W3 monster contracts when the side quests section was under discussion from the start? If you compare W3 side quests (not contracts) and W1 side quests, W1 falls far far behind.
butthurt people call sonyggers, sonyponies
Ex. crapgamer and ironwolf.
>They're not a good thing for anybody after all
Fuck off with the "le exclusives are anti-consoomer XD" meme
Most exclusives are exclusive because they would otherwise not exist at all. If Nintendo were not making Mario, we just wouldn't have Mario, it wouldn't mean it would suddenly be ported to every other platform.
It's only bad when a game is only exclusive because Sony or whomever paid for it to not go to other platforms. And we have fewer exclusive games than ever today, they're still vastly outnumbered by multiplats, so I don't know what you're complaining about in the first place. You can count the number of worthwhile exclusives for both PS4 and Xbone combined on two hands.
Literally all that's going on in Witcherbabby's minds now
>it's like Skyrim but you can have sex without using mods. Cool!
It's no wonder it wins awards despite being a boring pile of shit
and yet its you witcher haters that are getting btfo in every corner of the internet
honestly the maddest internet group since gg was formed
Regardless of whose post is it, you couldn't follow the discussion, and that also means saying "we get back to the point" makes no sense whatsoever, since there would have been no point to get back to if you'd just entered the discussion.
>all of them were better than that
Oh, yeah. Find two kids and give them food or not. Go to place x and decide to kill thing or accept money instead. Really good shit all the time. Nah.
>It has far less good side quests
Fewer, idiot. And the discussion originally entailed every side activity. The point was that Witcher 3 doesn't have a better ratio, even if there's a few outstanding ones in a sea of shit.
how could it be? they got properly mad since they initially realized it will be a strong goty contender and have been mad ever since, and that shit increased exponentially
have pic related, a proper gem
I remember when gypsy was going around claiming it wouldn't win anything.
He'd probably kill himself if he wasn't a retarded Biodrone, still got to shill MEA.
he was also a confirmed souls fanatic, and I say fanatic because I like souls games but I like witcher as well
kek, the funny part is it isn't even the post popular, this game really fucking swooped the whole gaming scene
which is even more impressive when considering that the dev was going bankrupt just a few years earlier
i'm pretty happy myself, iwinski is a pretty cool guy and him getting the awards over overrated cunts like todd or kojima made me feel fluffy inside.
buy everything, win every fight if its possible, go after every quest, do not attempt the losable gwent quests until you are confident and have a decent deck
also northern kingdoms with all spy cards is easy mode
The game with most fans is COD. The difference is that forum Cod players know that the game is shit and Witcher forum fanboys think that the game is a masterpiece when is pretty mediocre. They just need to do things like this to autoconvince themselves, even the press and videogame events give the goty to TW3 because of witcher fanboys.
>the press and videogame events give the goty to TW3 because of witcher fanboys.
This is the stupidest fucking thing I've ever read. Congrats anon. If you had a single brain cell in your head you'd realize that if this were true, FO4 would be sweeping the awards.
even casuals thought fallout 4 was bad
witcher 3 might be merely decent, but fallout 4 is a full blown abortion that managed to be even more dumbed down than fucking skyrim, which I honestly thought was impossible
Nah, man, if anything its better than fo3, and people still love it wildly and widely
Obviously a lot hate it or else metacritic user score wouldn't be so low, but it still has the bethesda following regardless
Honestly fo4 is way more fun than skyrim, just my 2bits
You know the guy who's been making all the Witcher threads, and who constantly keeps bringing up Skyrim's awards? He's a Biodrone, has played a shit ton of DA2, and is presumably asshurt still about DA2 vs. W2.
That's a pic from the ME:A shill threads where he accused anyone not hyped for MEA as being a CDPR shill.
>even casuals thought fallout 4 was bad
No they didn't, they fucking love it. The people who fucked its Metacritic score are not "casuals". FO4 sold a fuck ton, and the casuals who played it loved it.
Lol I will never understand people like him, I am catiously optimistic about ME:A because even with the shortcomings I still had a modicum of fun with ME3 but fuck, his blatant fanboism is just bordering on insanity you know?
Why is it so common for people NOT to be able to accept more than 1 game/series, its the one thing that somehow manages to be stupider than fucking platform wars if you ask me, and all this Witcher hates just brings these people out of the woods, like, WHAT THE FUCK do you gain by blatantly hating something just because it got more awards/fame than something you happen to like more?
Do you have trouble following or understanding movies and books?
Unfortunately you might be really stupid, and subsequently not competently comprehending what is happening.
I've liked them because since the first game they have been pretty much the only games where I can play a space operator full with his team of bitches going around doing space shit
But I'll admit each game was 1 step forward and 2 steps backwards (3 for me3), although I'm still kinda excited for andromeda, although its a given that I'll pirate if only because fuck installing origin and fuck missing out content
