I started a new game again and gently caress this games so good. The new update makes the UI a lot better too. Can't wait to get to the DLCs.

I played the Witcher 2 at 600x480, minimum settings on every graphical feature and still got around 15 to 20 FPS. I don't know how I ever lived through that

Would it be okay to skip 1 and 2 and go right to 3?

I just bought it a couple days ago since it's on sale on Steam. I played about an hour on PS4 when it came out but I wanna give it another chance

Yep. 3 barely uses 2s story but when it does it explains everything to you

How does 1 hold up? I've been sitting on a copy of that forever and never felt like I had the time to devote to it. People seem to love these games but I dunno if my laptop can run 3.

I don't know what Runescape is so I don't know if this is good or bad. Probably bad if you're saying it like that.

You left click on dudes and watch Geralt swing his sword around like a ninny and numbers periodically pop up. I stopped playing at 5 minutes but apparently the game is like 60 hours long. 2 and 3 are much more active, even if Im still not a fan of how they feel.

The combat in 1 was really bad, I didn't like it in 2 either but it was better. I just picked up 3 while it was on sale but I have to update my graphics card before I can play it

I played several hours of 3 last August and stopped when MGSV came out. I just got the first two books the other day and I'm going to read those before I get back into it.

The voice acting in 3 is some of the best I've heard in a video game

The voice acting is insanely good. The story is great. Those developers make a lot of triple a devs look like garbage

I did this too with MGSV . They've patched it a ton and revamped the inventory and crafting interfaces, I'm probably gonna just start over soon

1 is bad but kind of charming in its badness but not really and witcher 2 has some of the worst combat i've ever experienced in a videogame rpg so probably
