The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine story critique – Another Witcher post? It’s only because I love it

*Contains main story spoilers for Blood and Wine* When it comes to games I love I enjoy critiquing them into the ground, discussing their various foibles and small imperfections with anyone who will listen. If I ever do actually begin properly going into an in-depth analysis of parts of a game’s story on here then you know at least that my imagination was caught by the game’s writers. It’s fairly rare for me to really love a game, for instance I’ve only ever posted any in-depth analysis of the ending for Mass Effect 3, and despite my continuing dislike of that aspect of the story, the rest of it still shines as one of my favourite experiences in gaming. So with that preface I will follow it by saying that when I now start to negatively talk about the ending and a few important plot points in The Witcher 3 DLC: Blood and Wine you know that this does not mean you should not get the DLC. I will repeat what I said in my actual review that despite my frustrations with a few aspects, this is still one of the absolute best things you can play, bar none.

Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt review – Triss and Yen have competition…

Honestly I kind of spaffed my load early when it comes to what I think about the Witcher 3. I said it in our 2015 Gaming Awards but I’ll go ahead and say it again now. The Witcher 3 is not just mine and Tim’s Game of the Year for 2015, but quite honestly I do see it as being my absolute favourite game of all time and very likely the outright best made to date. It is absolutely an instant classic, damn near perfect in every way that counts and I don’t see anything knocking it from the top spot of my list for years to come. That is an exceptionally strong claim to be making right at the start of this review, but I did want to clarify that so that if I spend the next 3000+ words ranting and raving about just how damned good it is, you knew what you were getting into when you started reading after the jump.
