1What makes The Witcher 3 so wonderful?

As anticipation grows for CD Projekt Red’s futuristic Cyberpunk 2077, I travelled back to the world of The Witcher 3.

To me, The Witcher 3 is the greatest game of all time. Like an item crafted by an expert dwarf (or their wife), The Witcher 3 takes so many brilliant elements and binds them all together to create something special. A game that I believe everyone should play and complete.

But, to be more honest than Dandelion, I have to admit that during my first playthrough, I never actually completed The Witcher 3. I left Geralt abandoned in a never-ending fight, all because I found the difficulty curve too intense, and the sheer amount of quests overwhelming.

A few years later, after having read and loved Andrzej Sapkowski’s fantastic Witcher books, I decided to travel back to The Witcher 3 (but not through portals, as Geralt doesn’t like portals) and play on the lowest difficulty mode. Yes, I know some will see that as a bigger crime than stealing the purse in a game of Gwent, but it gave me the chance to explore the wonderful world without stress, and enjoy everything that The Witcher 3 has to offer.

I highly recommend everyone to do the same. Read on to find five reasons to enjoy The Witcher 3 once more…

Gaming has been a life-long love for Stan. To him, there's nothing better than getting lost in a single player adventure. He calls Hyrule home, but occasionally also ventures to a galaxy far far away... Fancy a game of Gwent?
