Most mainstream games (or the least the ones made in the last decade) don't interest me, so I already understand that not everyone will like a popular game. Skyrim was a game I was initially interested in since I favor RPGs. I expected some bugs, having played Oblivion, Fallout 3, and Fallout: New Vegas. However, Skyrim turned out to be was more unstable than the games before it, and I just couldn't take it anymore.
Anyways, kadell wanted to know why people like Witcher 3, so I answered accordingly. It's not a personal attack, although I question what he was able to get out of 30 minutes, given the fact that most RPGs (besides dungeon crawlers) usually takes several hours before things pick up. I was also curious about what dialogue trees in RPGs he is comparing to.
Honestly, it might just be the same feeling I had when watching CA: Civil War where people hype something like it's God's greatest gift and never mention the flaws so the flaws stand out more than they actually should. When I remember every other RPG like the Final Fantasy Games, Divinity Original Sin, Skyrim, New Vegas, Dragon Age Origins, Persona 4 (which has no combat until 2-2.5 hours in), Mass Effect, The Mana games, the Romancing SaGa games, & Earthbound and how they held my attention long enough, I was expecting to catch on to this game a lot faster. It just feels like the cutscenes are incredibly slow. But when I finish some of my other games first I might retry it since most people also suggested at least getting to the Bloody Baron quest.
