I feel bad for not playing this game but I seriously lose interest every time I try to play it as soon as I enter the first town after the prologue.

Played this game when it first came out and I just started going through it again with the EE and my 3D Vision setup. This is gaming bliss.

I felt that way as well.

For me, it was about how daunting the whole city is and whether or not I'd be missing some stuff if I didn't do something correctly. When I used the wikkia site as a reference, I found out that there's some choices and skill checks made in the game that dictate your succession in certain events or unlock certain quests. I think when I found that out after doing a certain event and hitting the "point of no return", that kind of did it in for me.

I love playing games and trying to get everything I can, but I didn't feel like saving/loading a certain file just to get a different outcome. But I tried to do the best I can and play the game for what it had to offer. The EE patch made it much better to enjoy the game as well, so I could live with making those choices much easier for some reason, lol.

Give it a bit more. It picks up more when you enter the City.

Still I was hooked from the start myself.

Yah, I agree. Once you actually enter the city, it does pick up and you start to apply the skills you learn from the prologue and you realize just how deep the game really is

I love it. Fantastic experience overall.

You can't play these games constantly worrying about what you might be missing or what outcomes your choices might block off... the whole point of them really is to experience these consequences.

I know that flips some people sideways, but for me it is what makes the game great.

Oh, I know what you mean. That's why I love Mass Effect so much. Once you beat it, all of your stuff carries over and you can play a new game with your old character. All of the dialog options open up, and you're able to go about resolving different situations because you weren't able to before. Right from the beginning of the game, you realize this when you save those colonist farmers and you can chose to threaten or sympathize with him to get your information. I'm a big fan of the "New Game +" concept ever since Chrono Trigger on the SNES, and a lot of games are slowly adapting this as well (i.e. Mass Effect 2.)

The thing about The Witcher is that there aren't any real consequences for missing something. Either you miss or you don't. I think that's what set me off on this obsessive-compulsive thing with this game. It's not necessarily a bad thing, it's just there's no real incentive to play it through again. That's why I'd rather get everything in one shot and just be done with it. I'm not normally like this with other games that don't even have the replay value as I've mentioned earlier. It's just this game for some reason. Maybe it's all of those damn sex cards, hahaha.

Mass Effect is a poor RPG, decent action game.

shilk you must really hate life, the most compex RPG, and it doesn't come with wikkia page. every day you miss hundreds of possible events.
