I take back every bad thing I ever said about this game.
I just got to the Blood and Wine adventure where you get to talk to Roach.
I didn't play the first two and I loved 3. I'm sure there was a shit-ton I didn't catch, but the world is so lived-in and real, I was immersed regardless.
I would just skim through a wiki or watch a cutscene collection on YouTube, rather than slog through the actual games. Don't get me wrong, Witcher 2 was really good as well, but 3 is just that much better that I wouldn't bother.
Just finished that part. Unfortunately, I got the sad ending.
I loved the little they put in. The Emperor with No Clothes was a nice touch.
It really does. I got the bad ending, but I was true to Geralt. I told both sisters what I thought and gave proper warning of what might happen. Then they made their own decisions, and it was sad. But they made the decisions.
It felt like the perfect way to end one of the best games ever made.
