2The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
Available on: PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an action role-playing game developed by CD Projekt Red and initially released in 2015. In it, you play as Geralt, a Witcher who is looking for his missing friend Ciri.
Ciri is like a daughter to Geralt, and you feel the desperation in each step he takes as you play through the game. That being said, Geralt isn’t one to turn down a good side quest – and that’s why a full completion of The Witcher 3 will take you close to 200 hours. No matter how urgent finding Ciri may be, there’s always time for a 20-hour detour and a few rounds of the in-game card game Gwent.
With a magical setting, a huge world to explore and more side quests than you could imagine, it’s hard not to see why The Witcher 3 is so much like Skyrim. Both are cut from the same adventurous cloth, and fans of Skyrim are sure to find a second love in The Witcher 3.
