    The DLC is immense.

    Wish I could forget all about this game and start it for the first time.

    Picked this up today and installing it now. 18gb update though so probably have to wait until tomorrow to play it.

    Never played any of the other games and haven't heard too much about this one. What makes it so good/popular?

    I just bought it in the Steam sale over Chinese New Year and played through the first hour. Looks really good so far, just got really baffled by a card game I ended up playing and turned it off. Will hopefully go back to it today as I've got a snow day or two to fill.

    The characters are fantastic, the map is enormous and packed with side quests/witcher contracts/treasure etc. The story is pretty decent as well but that's not what you're really there for.

    Everything about it is just top notch.

    So just completed it, what a game, about to do the dlc's now
    Got the bad ending tho, apparently being over-protective of ciri is a bad thing :(

    Just finished the DLC'S. Blood and Wine was good but Hearts of Stone is probably the best DLC i've ever played.
    Gaunter o dimm has to be the creepiest character ever in a video game, got chills whenever he was on screen

    about 50 hours deep into this and don't feel as though I've even scratched the surface. Only downloaded it because it was free on Xbox Game pass, so glad that I did. Will buy the DLC when I finish the game.

    Never bothered with Gwent, which kind of annoyed me as it made me "fail" a couple of missions (which although they have no material impact, its still quite annoying).

    In this thread I mentioned gwent and it isnt essential so decided I'd skip it. I ended up loving it after giving it a go though

    Mate, do not skip Gwent, i ended up finding random people to battle after a while, once you get the hang of it, it's the most fun part of the game :57:

    Never did the gwent, hate these * daft board type games.

    Just ended up watching on YouTube some of the story's from that, which is a bit annoying that it comes from a part of the game I absolutely hated.

    See they posted about development of a new witcher game.

    Have to say having never played a witcher game upto the witch hunt, I cant wait, the nearest gsme for me to topple Red Dead.

    Not sure if Geralt is from all the previous games, hope so as means hed probably be the character in this.

    The medallion from the teaser is a lynx not a wolf, so I’d guess it’d be a new character possibly?

    Wonder if it'll be a female character then or can you not get a female witcher?

    I don’t know enough about the lore (only played game 3 and watched the show), but I think they said on the show ciri was an exception and it’s usually all guys?

    Although one theory is there is no lynx school where it’s currently set, so could be a completely different place with different rules…* knows though!
