I loved playing Witcher 3 on the PS4. I played it in 2015 and what I remember is this: after about 3 days of playing 10-12 hours a day, my girlfriend asked me if I’m close to the end. And I said something along the lines of “it’s pretty close, maybe 2 more hours”. It took me 2 more days to finish the game. The story continued to keep me stuck in front of the TV.
This is why I didn’t play the game again since. I loved it, but starting to play again for 100 hours seemed too much. Until it appeared on Nintendo Switch, about 2 months ago. I bought it on Black Friday and now I play it in shorter bursts, whenever I want. And it’s as good as I remember. It’s amazing the developers (CD Project Red) managed to use the underpowered console that is the Switch to actually make the game work. And it works amazing, even if it’s not 4K resolution.
Today I also started to watch The Witcher, the Netflix TV series. And, after 2 episodes, I can say I’m in. Henry Cavill is as close to Geralt of Rivia (the titular character) as much as it can be and the cinematography is really good.
If you want to watch a fantasy series you need to see The Witcher on Netflix. If you heard about the Witcher games or books but you were not too interested in them, the tv series might change your mind.
