Well, there we go. He ended the thread in like a nano second.
Related to this though, it does always pain me to see how "little" this marvellous game sold. Hopefully RED will release a Witcher 3 Collectors Edition. I'm totally fucking buying it. Oh and, I do hope it's gonna include the Wolf medallion ^^ You deserve more RED, you're fuckin' awesome.

Yeah, witcher3 collectors edition will be next to my retail witcher and witcher 2 copies. Need to find some job to build better pc till that time, you reds don't need some IT technician living in warsaw?

Problem is that witcher 2 is game for niche audience. I would compare it to MCDonalds(skyrim) and some really good sushi restaurant (witcher 2). Ofcourse everyone knows what we get buying in mcdonalds: a piece of tasty although probably not very healthy low quality food, enough to satisfy your hunger, but not very sophisticated. What we get in sushi bar? Eww, it's RAW FISH and it's too expensive, it's hard get into sushi, let's go to MCDonalds instead.

I don't understand why wicher is not more popular? It wasn't marketed well? I never gave it a chance till now since people kept saying it's a hard core, dark fantasy, punishing game. To me this translated into some old school RPG with terrible combat, mind numbing grind, and generally slow game where you die a lot just to justify the adjective "hardcore". Well suffice it to say the game is not that, and it's great.
The thing is, the great open world sand box games always sell better than the great story driven not so open world games.

Are you kidding me? This is like asking why anime isn't more popular in Kansas. TW2 is a niche game, for a niche audience. It's a love letter to eastern european fans of the series. And that's a good thing. When they start making it for everyone, well then it's dead. To me at least.

It's not a good example. The anime market for the United States is worth approximately $4.35 billion. The only place where Anime is more popular than in US is Japan.

Well, I think sushi tastes like shit so your analogy doesn't quite work for me

I thought it was decent. ;_;
But you get the idea.
Skyrim - for more casual audience, light game for saturday night. Don't bother you or question your morality, you just wander around, kill some dragons, put some mods to stare at landscape.
Witcher & Witcher2- game for hardcore RPG audience with complicated story, based on 7 books, work of art. Often asking difficult question or questioning your morality, no casualizations in shape of glowing arrows telling you exactly where to go, lot's of lore needed to fully understand.

It doesn't even *look* good, and tastes like eating cardboard with ketchup on it. No thanks.
I get the analogy though. Use ME2/3 for Skyrim (haven't played it so don't know how good/bad it is), and I agree wholeheartedly with the McD analogy

Although i thought...they sold more copies then 2 million?? Is that pc also included?
Witcher series is so much better then Skyrim... played skyrim some time and a bit longer and then i got bored killing dragon and doing quests that kinda looked the same at some point...
