I've viewed witcher 3 (story only) on youtube. It is really exceptional and one of the best games ever made.

there are different endings...

Yes I believe there are 36 different endings based upon the decisions Geralt makes during the game.

My game ended badly for Geralt and was very depressing.

I've reached level 25, and even with the difficulty cranked to the max I'm having trouble finding an interesting fight.

I've reached the Isle of Mist in terms of core quest (I've been busy wandering), but I don't know if I'll both to finish it. The wall-to-wall cut scenes in the core quest get real old.

Something like that. there are 3 different 'major' endings (cutscenes).

I suppose you got the eerie one.

The great length of this game makes it unplayable for many people. The cutscenes alone were 13 hours plus.

You are around 2/3rds or 3/4ths done with the game I would say.

The expansion "Hearts of Stone" is coming out in 2 days.

Yes I put somewhere in the neighborhood of 250 hours into the game.

The next one I'm really looking forward to is Fallout 4 which comes out on November 10th.

It's supposed to take around 400 hours to complete!

I'm really looking forward to Fallout 4. And Mass Effect 4 is right around the corner.

The Witcher 3 and Fallout 4 look very similar- it's like they used quite similar technology to make both.

250 hours..wow, that's long. I can see how the story could feel dragged out (13+ hours of cutscenes )

And I still haven't explored all the areas in Skellige (the islands).

I have completed about 95% of the quests though.

Yeah, I've cleared out about every land-based area, but not all the water-based.

I wish they had gone with a different color system for 'known' and 'cleared out'. White and pale gray aren't the best options.

I've decimated the quests, although I didn't bother to learn the card game, and only did a couple boxing quests.

I loved the card game.

It's a ton of fun and actually has some strategy to it.

I ignored the card game for a while myself. But once I started playing, it became a favorite.

I'm at about the same place as AJR. BTW, I love the cutscenes.

My biggest problem is my ADD attention span. I started playing WOT and haven't fired up Witcher 3 in a couple of months. I did the same thing with DA:Inquisition, another huge game.

Another great game.
