I’m super salty about a lot of stuff in games, mainly on the writing front
I think the single most granular and ridiculously nitpicky opinion I have is that Witcher 3 has Anime Protagonist Syndrome something fierce and it (slightly) hurts the experience for me
Seriously, Geralt a) looks more interesting than EVERYONE ELSE IN THE GAME JUST ABOUT and it doesn’t really feel like he’s part of the world he’s interacting with
this is made worse by b) he’s managed to be at the center of very nearly every major event in this realm’s recent history. It’s nuts. Dude is the center of the bloody universe and I hate that. Or he would be, if Ciri The Other Anime Protagonist didn’t show up as well.
Don’t get me wrong, the game’s writing is for the most part stellar elsewhere–I just–GODDAMMIT LET SOME OTHER PEOPLE BE CRITICAL TO THE FATE OF THE WORLD. JESUS.
