If it had been a 10 to 15 hour game I would have bought it for sure. As soon as previews started mentioning it taking 100+ hours it killed any interest I had in buying or playing it.


I wonder if people are just getting dumber as their attention spans get shorter and shorter..

At what point did games having to much content become an issue? Am i living in Bizarro World?

"dude, the game is just tooo long...if the game would have less content id totally buy it".. Whaaat?

If the long game is constantly engaging, and not padded out, and mixed it up every so often, then yes, it would be great. But if all I'm doing is talking to people and walking around, with some meh combat, then no, it's not better.

Well lets be realistic about it. Talking to people and walking around is what ALL open world ARPG are about. In the Witchers 3 case that OPEN world and the NPCS you talk to are very well designed.

Witcher 3 is jammed pack with great characters, well written dialogue in an amazing looking world. With tons of quests... And the combat is pretty good too. (basically everything anyone could want with a ARPG)

Not sure why people complain about the combat either.. Combat is great.

Really? I'd rather have a game I can play for a long time than one I'll play for a bit than never touch again tbh.

Well, that's you, then. If you can't find the enjoyment to ride that exhilarating, heart pumping, action packed ride multiple times, I pity you.

Maybe your just not an rpg guy.

What would lead you to believe that? I've replayed short action games like DMC3 and X-Men Origins: Wolverine well over ten times. I've also replayed games like Oblivion and Fallout 3 multiple times doing every single quest available. And in the middle, I've completed the Mass Effect trilogy a dozen times on multiple platforms.

I've come to realize that most long games are only long because if padding. For me personally, if the combat is varied and excellent, like in both if my 300+ hour playthroughs of Kingdoms of Amalur, you might not notice it.
Nothing is over-rated. Your opinion is just outnumbered.

I'd take Witcher 3's combat over souls games combat 10/10 times.

Witcher 3 really lacked big set pieces and epic boss fights, every fight seem like a push over, first time played on hardest difficulty and quen sign and hop dodge are way too over powered, got all trophies for the game and dlc mind you. In my opinion it's a bit overrated.

Applesauce would have been good if it was made out of oranges.
I prefer to just play video games rather than worry about which platform/s they release on or how many pixels are on the screen.
