Good day, everyone! Though my primary area of specialization here at Sourcerer is comic books, I am also a gamer—video games, tabletop role-playing games, you name it. Today, I want to lay out a few of the games that make me wish I had more disposable income. Please note: I am not attempting to incite any sort of argument between console loyalist factions; I have switched sides several times myself over the years and find the constant bickering tiring. Please, if you wish to comment, avoid this particular subject. Thank you and enjoy!
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
Though I didn’t get the chance to finish the original Witcher game because of its spotty release in the US, The Witcher 2 is one of my favorite games on last generation’s consoles. The Witcher games are dark, violent, and most definitely intended to be played by adults. I believe that the fact they are based on a European fantasy book series (by author Andrzej Sapkowski) helps this; I have to say these games and stories feel more like a dirty, old world Europe than any other fantasy I’ve enjoyed. The appeal of this game extends beyond the story, setting, and characters, though—as a massive, open world game, The Witcher 3 will be a reported 26 times larger than The Witcher 2. That alone makes this game worth every penny spent on it.
