I'm still playing The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt. The game is just so vast and every side quest has me wandering from the main story all the time. I love it, but what I failed to grasp was Gwent. I had played a couple games and I don't know whether it was the tutorial or my attention, but I didn't grasp how Gwent worked.
Fast forward to Gwent getting itself its own release with stunning visuals and cross platform play, I've been playing the Beta for the last week, and I've been thoroughly enjoying it.
Computer games are probably the youngest entertainment medium, where films have had decades to perfect their craft and books are timeless classics; computer games are infants in comparison. This means that that games themselves suffer a great deal of criticism and mockery because the medium is still seen as a niche by many people.
I will happily tell those people that computer games are possibly the most dramatic and interactive way of telling a story that you could ever imagine. I will take last years Goliath of a title The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt as my shining example, the telling of author Andrzej Sapkowski tale about a monster hunter named Geralt of Rivia. This is much more than hunting down monsters and demons, the tale stretches from monarchies to all out warfare without ever compromising on detail. It would be a long article if I were to ramble on about how this game surpasses the expectations of gaming and stands itself as a expertly told story. Instead I will let you see the trailer which showcases enough elements of the game without ever giving everything away.
