And some games kick your hiney all the way through, like me with my mage/assassin, level 19 and still having to come up with strategies to win a fight with most enemies. Lots of running away and casting Scamps at baddies just to buy time.

Hi,

yes, I totally agree that changing from game to next or returning back after a break and getting used to new or remembering old controls always take some time but what I really mean is a general 'flaw' in controls.

I have never played any game where fighting with fists, sword or club feels natural. Simplyfied it's just turning towards your enemy and making always the same swing or dodge move either standing or crouching. When using gamepad it's always hitting game dependent buttons to do those things and it just does not feel natural.

Using bows or firearms feels much more natural. You can often change whether you aim from left or right to stay in cover. You use either open sights, scope, red point or imagined flying track which all similate reality quite well.

I guess there's nothing we can do to make player experience more even when using different kind of weapons until wider support and use of other type of controllers to better simulate the weapon use. Perhaps hand held or wearable are some start.

Until then bows and firearms stay my favourite choice of weapon.

Timo

Archery is my favourite approach to Skyrim and Tomb Raider. Much more controllable and sneaky smile

Bows are almost always my weapon of choice. Sneak + Bow/rifle = dead enemy. That said, I love watching Geralt level up and become a dynamo with his weapons.

Witcher: The Enhanced Edition is on sale at GOG for $1.49 so I'm going to try out this edition of the first game. I've never played this series.

That's a great deal. thumbsup The first one hooked a lot of people into the series. It's an interesting take on a high-fantasy RPG.

Lucky you, getting to play this game for the first time. Witcher is a great, great game.

I second what Hagatha said! I could watch the opening cutscene a dozen times over.

You know, it felt like forever since I played the first one, so loaded it up this evening and started playing again. The graphics look only a bit dated, BUT when you really watch through the intro and beginning narrative, it definitely holds up as a classic.

There was something about the game that drew me into it and now after seeing it after so long, it's the narrative. Totally reminds me of the old Neverwinter Nights or Icewind Dale. Plus Geralt's look and the scenery is so stylized. It sort of looks like something you'd see in an older, illustrated folk tale book. thumbsup

I did the same thing, Trail! I noticed I had some saves from 2012, so I guess it's been at least 5 years since I played it. My opinions exactly!

Just realized that the reason for the sales is because of The Witcher's 10 year anniversary. Good grief Geralt, where did the time go?!? lol

It has to be a long while since I played Witcher, but when it was new I got through three games one after another. Great fun.But NO, I'm not starting a game. I have about a hundred new games unplayed and yet somehow find myself playing Oblivion (which is like eating comfort food in times of stress).

TEN years? How did that happen! But then I upgraded my old XP computer with more RAM, a stand alone video card and a new power supply just so I could play this game, so I guess it has been that long. Wow...
