Re: Official Witcher 2 - The Assassins of Kings
That was a very satisfying game, the best I've played in a long time (and hands-down better than DA2). Aside from the learning curve, and the occasional bit of background knowledge the game assumes you have but actually don't, it's also the best put-together game I've played in years. The game world itself was tightly crafted, the technical execution played to the engine's strengths while avoiding its weaknesses, the characters and your interactions with them were extremely memorable (my favorite moment in the game is sitting with Dwarves in Vergen's Inn, swapping stories - that just felt natural) and the story was excellent.
Definitely a strong contender for game of the year. Studying Witcher 2's design should be mandatory for all RPG developers (glares at Bioware).
