    Happy Belated Birthday Witcher and what is even better, there will be a Witcher 4!

    LOL, I already posted on this thread. Oh well, Happy B-day again to my most favorite RPG video game of all time! The game successfully transferred me to another world.

      Necro post, oh well.

      Yes it is, I am currently using mods for Witcher 3. Now is it as moddable as other games, maybe not? But saying it is unmoddable is completely untrue.

    Highly moddable my ass.... W3 is not f***ing moddable

    Over 2,000 mod files here on the Nexus alone.
    Over 31,000,000 downloads of those files.
    I'd say that makes W3 pretty moddable.

    I play the Witcher games but as a woman, I always feel like I am crashing a party I was not invited to.

      I play Witcher too (3 ATM but I played 2 as well, though I am far from finished with 3) and I'm a girl, I admit it can be hard to remember, Geralt's a guy and thus, you have that dynamic to remember when talking and dealing with NPCs. But otherwise I have quite a bit of fun, I have no desire to be a girl in the game, Geralt is fun, though I got remember to be careful about getting TOO friendly with females with the mere intention of being nice and it leading to things I did not expect... (Not a fan of sexual content.)

    OK so this post, and this anniversary, and this sale, well well well. I bought Witcher 3 - It's the most fun I ever had playing a game since Zelda Ocarina of Time. No lie. Hands down this game is amazing.
    Sorry Fallout 4, but receiving one accolade of Game of the Year from one magazine, doth not a Game of the Year title make.
    CD Projekt Red - Bravo. This game is mindblowing.

    PS.. I applied for a level design position for Witcher 4 - wish me luck, you guys.

      Good luck! Just remember to do your best so Witcher 4 will replace Witcher 3 as the best fantasy RPG video game to date.

    Witcher 3 is definitely the best Role Playing Video Game to date. The only negative thing I have to say is, "What no more content until Witcher 4?!" I can't wait to see how Cyberpunk 2077 turns out!

    Witcher 3 Wild Hunt - Player (Love this Game):

    All I can personally say is I have used GOG and Steam, support sucks on both... Sorry, guys. But, with Steam at least you have the support of the Steam community... To help fix most, if not all issues. I could always find the fixes thru the Steam version from the Steam community, but I always hit a dead end usually with GOG version. "Works on the Steam version, but not on GOG." - and it Didn't...

    So, to be fair Witcher 3: Wild hunt ended up costing me just over $120 USD to get my first play thru...
    No CD ProjeKt Red, I'm not saying I would buy Witcher 4 for $120... but hmmm...

    Whoever thought this was a good idea should rethink it. What was a functional website is now a website that looks pretty but lost all its usability. Not to mention that despite a 100mbit connection load times are abysmal now.

    I play the Witcher games but as a woman, I always feel like I am crashing a party I was not invited to.

    ​So far, that's like a true RPG setting. Be someone else - completely unchained from real life facts & constraints.

    ​But I agree, that open games like Skyrim (player's liberty to choose her/his character)  make that experience far more comfortable.
    ​To that degree, the Witcher games clearly lack a story from a female perspective. Ciri might be the obvious one.

    In a ranking: The "​Blood and wine" expansion feels the most neutral story for me where Geralt's gender is not predominant in the mainquest. Witcher 1 would probably be the opposite for the told story.

    Good timing, I have bought all 3 games of The Witcher series. 
    Does the story continue from first game to second to third? I just want to know if it worth to start playing the first one or jump to third one?

      Give the first one a try. If you are ok with the gameplay (which hasn't aged very well), the stuff you learn about the story and lore is pretty cool.
      And the second game is actually pretty great by itself.

      The story doesn't really continue, but there are a lot of referenced to 1 and 2 in 3.
      And imo knowing them makes the wild hunt more enjoyable and gives it a much more familiar feel.

      The story does continue. CrusaderX speaks false. You port your savegames from the Witcher 1 to its sequel, and then to 3.

      technically,it does continue but not that strictly,yes you can import saves,but the main story itself is vastly different in each game
