The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt presents a conundrum: how can you speak about that which leaves you speechless?
CD Projekt RED has not only created what is likely the most expansive western RPG of all time, but quite possibly the best game since Grand Theft Auto V. Through an incredible combination of narrative excellence, stunning immersion and largely unparalleled depth, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an exercise in success. Geralt of Rivia’s climactic quest to track down Yennifer and Ciri is always entertaining and often emotional, and it’s staggering to think that this marvelous story exists within a title with a genre-defining wealth of things to do. A desolate, realistic world filled with complex, mature story lines and themes awaits players who decide to forfeit their real lives in order to live through Geralt. This is a realm that players will lose themselves in for weeks and months, as the claim that this is a 200-hour title is no joke.
What separates The Witcher 3 from every other open-world title is that each and every distraction feels meaningful and consequential rather than some sort of map-populating event. In an industry where countless titles seem loaded with weak excuses for players not to trade in their copies, it’s undoubtedly refreshing to see worthwhile content brimming from potentially the biggest open-world game ever.
