There's a lot more I could have said about The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (yes, I know, Geralt's beard grows back dynamically after being trimmed), but it's about time I offer my conclusions, in case what I think about the game isn't already obvious.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt isn't perfect, but its achievements leave me in awe. This is a game that matches and often surpasses its two predecessors in terms of art, writing and quest design, while offering as much content as many juggernaut open-world titles developed by teams that number in the thousands.

It's a game that mechanically sits side by side with the mold of current generation, triple A titles, without losing the peculiar personality that made the original The Witcher resonate with me and many other RPG players.

Perhaps The Witcher 3 would be better as an action-adventure, with a streamlined loot system and no character system. But I'm glad it's an RPG. If nothing else, because it gives me an excuse to gush about it on an RPG-focused website. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is amazing. Bring on the expansions, CD Projekt RED. I'm ready.
