Yeah, I think one place we tend to fall down is thinking we need to be The Best or The Authority on a thing, when we can just be contributing to the whole, as you (@Moon) have certainly done here. It’s all about increasing the understanding of a thing, but we (especially americans) feel like we have to turn all that into MONEY because we don’t have enough money to live otherwise.
Witcher 3… i dunno man, I played about 12 hours of that game! I got to novigrad and they were like LET ME REGALE YOU WITH THE LORE and I extremely did not care. after a bunch of middling experiences with a couple bright spots (I liked every quest having to do with ghosts) I was like… why am I playing this? I don’t enjoy the combat, everyone in this game hates me for no reason even though they’re constantly asking me for help and that’s actually the only thing they see me do, I look the same as everyone except I have white hair so the racism analogy falls apart, and sometimes I fall off a cliff while exploring and have to spend 15 minutes figuring out how to get back to where I was.
I dunno, it was alright! But it was really giving me the strong impression that I’d rather be doing other stuff. I might give it a shot again some day but… I’m going to have to be really bored in a house full of video games or something big is going to have to change in the game in terms of the story. I have to say this bloody baron thing everyone seems to love sounds incredibly stupid to me. Sorry!!!!!!!!
My buddy who played through the whole thing said the good part is the DLC really, but I’m just not like… enjoying the characters or the world or the gameplay very much, so… I can’t imagine there being a payoff that’s worth it.
Sometimes stuff like this makes me feel like a big weirdo, everybody loves this game! what do I know.
