The Witcher 3 came out this week and I didn’t buy it. Not because I don’t want it – I do, it looks amazing – but because I haven’t played the previous games and I am a stickler for continuity! I have them on Steam, but haven’t played them yet and have sort of been holding out for a remake for PS4, despite reports to the contrary.
I saw a report on Good Game the other night (not a show I normally watch because, well, I am really bothered by the hosts) but I was sucked in by their Witcher 3 review. I’d kept away from trailers for fear of spoiling the previous games, but what I saw on Good Game got me pretty excited. All the quests, and crafting, and items, and riding horses, and making friends with chickens, and well, pretty much everything I saw, I loved. I also have some friends who’ve started playing it, and I just know I’m going to be jealous soon.
So my dilemma is this – do I go ahead and just play the new one, or do I try to burn through the first two on Steam (bearing in mind I have terrible WASD skills) and then play the new one?
