1. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
developer: CD PROJECT RED | release date: May 18, 2015 | Steam page: Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
What is The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt? In the game, the player slips into the role of the well-known sorcerer and mercenary Geralt von Rivia. In front of you is an open world that invites you to explore: there are ruins, heights and shipwrecks to discover.
The setting is a dark fantasy world and you face various monsters in battle. Various weapons, potions and battle magic are available to you for this purpose. Upgrade your skills and gear with the rewards you receive on your journey.
In your free time you can also spend your hard-earned money on card games, horse racing or fist fights.
Your decisions also have consequences in the game and there are multiple endings in the game. So plan each step carefully. In addition, you can take over your score from the 2nd part of the series, which in turn also affects the story.

MeinMMO author’s opinion of Cortyn:
For me, The Witcher III is one of the really big role-playing game milestones. Even if the open world can be overwhelming at the beginning and you look stunned when the level 20 giant suddenly knocks you out of your feet at level 5, it fits the world perfectly.
The game is carried by its grandiose story with different courses. Witcher III is quite brutal and unrelenting at times, doesn’t shy away from dark themes and is definitely not for people who prefer a more gentle RPG experience. Sometimes the revived miscarriage crawls around in the front yard with demon eyes or witches dripping with pus eat children’s fingers. And there’s sex on stuffed unicorns, too.
This harmonises well with the varied combat system. Great freedom in the choice of “spells” and equipment ensures that every Witcher Geralt plays a little differently.
By the way, you don’t have to have played the predecessors. The first few hours of play summarizes what happened quite well and ensures that you can lose yourself in the world without first reading hours of summaries.
Who is Witcher 3: Wild Hunt worth it for? The game is definitely worth it for fantasy fans. With the gripping story and the extensive possibilities that the game offers you, you can spend countless hours as Geralt without getting bored.
