My momentum to keep playing W3 is fading fast, and what I’ve read/heard about the game beyond what I have seen so far isn’t helping.
The main issue is that every single reviewer that liked W3 talks about how amazing the Bloody Baron quest chain was. Almost no other quest or event is mentioned, it almost always Bloody Baron. And yes, Bloody Baron was a good story, if a bit dragged out and somewhat cliche (drunk and abusive army guy with a cheating wife). The actual gameplay of the big decision point leaving you 100% blind to the choice you are actually making was awful, especially because every other dialog option and quest solution during the chain was rather clear so you could, you know, actually make a choice or guide the narrative, but yes, overall Bloody Baron was good.
Is anything after remotely as good? Already I’ve skipping most of the minor side fluffy because you can only track so many footprints or scents to find a mob that will ultimately drop you nothing of value, and return to get paid a few worthless coins. Same goes for treasure hunts; I think every single one I’ve done so far hasn’t giving me anything that would be a worthwhile upgrade.
I’ve also heard the upcoming Dandelion search is a bore, and I already hate Dandelion the character from W1 and W2. Plus the final chapter of the whole game is a few chained boss fights?
Any reason to keep going here? How close am I to finishing things up (just found out that Trist is hiding), to at least get the checkmark of having beaten the game?
