    I am actually kinda curious how this game compares to witcher 3. Witcher 3 is still hands down my go to for open world rpg based in the whole swords and magic lore. Ive read a few reviews and seems like no one is comparing this game to the Witcher 3. I really would like to know how it compares before i buy.

    This is what happens when you give teenagers access to the internet.
    That being said, a review of a game is something entirely personal. I could absolutely love a game while the next person absolutely hates all the things i loved about it. 
    Like everything on the internet, some people that actually played the game and didn't like it gave it some negative reviews, and suddenly everyone else thinks it's super cool to give neg reviews even if they haven't played the game.

    It amazes me how much the haters hate. The game looks good, it plays great, and it has the best qualities of the previous titles. Hell, I think it even improves upon mechanics that were once a bit wonky.

    Imagine living in a world where there are no good games and the only thing that motivates anyone is money. We need to filter out reviews that actually say someone hasn't played it.

    This is why Metacritic isn't worthy of respect on any level. People are allowed to give negative reviews to games they've never played because they don't think it deserves a high score is insane bs on a whole new level. On a positive note, does anyone know what Ashley's necklace is? I feel like I've seen it in Crusader Kings, but I highly doubt it that it's what I think it is.

      To be fair steam reviews are only allowed on products people own and they aren't any better.i mean, there are good steam reviews but there are also thousands of terrible ones drowning them out.

    User reviews are 85% absolute shit, and the legitimate reviews are hidden gems in the trash. You don't want to route through to find them.
