Having just finished this game after three days of long hours staring at the tv, this is my conclusion, this is a historic accomplishment in gaming history, its immersion, atmosphere, character development makes others in its genre such as the elderscrolls series and even the dragon age titles pale in comparison. The Witcher 3 raises the bar for all fantasy RPG's to come. With a ridiculous number of fully fleshed out cut scene and all side quests for you to undertake, a series of convoluted main story missions, it all becomes overwhelming at first, just when you think you are near the end, turns out, you're not.
With this being the console version, the occasional technical hiccup (framerate drops, stutters, sound skip etc..) does occur, but its not game breaking.
If you are even remotely interested in a rpg or a game rich in story, then you GOT TO PLAY THIS. Even if you're not, do yourself a favor, at least rent it, borrow it or wait a few months until you can get it cheap and try it out. This is something every gamer should experience.
