I LOVE IT vs I HATE IT

Fun combat, great story, FANTASTIC Choice & Consequence ... overall, if every RPG I play from now on is like the Witcher 2, I'll never leave my house.

I hate it for its console controls.
I swore an oath to NEVER buy a xbox controler for any game. Any game at all. Along comes TW2 and my resolve is fading. I hate TW2 for that.
WHY tell me why? Looting bags on the floor, I damn hate it. Console mini-games like punching the guard or escaping the dragon hitting the right button as it is displayed on screen. COME ON! Ah hates that as well.
I dislike console games for exactly that - but I do not hate console games, because I can simply avoid them.
And by the way: having a visual locking symbol on targets is great when flying F16 or Spaceships, not when swinging a sword. Console jockeys do not care about that, I know. Casual gamers are like this.
One year I have waited until I restarted TW2 Enhanced. I really hoped some issues would be resolved. Now I have the feeling some have gotten worse.
Please people. For the next game. Decide who you want to adress. Console casuals or PC enthusiasts.
Gods it is such a shame...
Edit: please apologize my ranting, I have no intention of upsetting console gamers, some of my friends are and consoles sure have their merits. But the limitations consoles put on PC gaming have been discussed in length. To experience them in a game like TW2 is very frustrating.

When you turn they will be gone, whispering their hidden song.
Then you see what cannot be, shadows move where light should be.
Out of darkness, out of mind – cast down into the Halls of the Blind…

Hate the looting, medallion spam/cooldown where it fizzes, and doors/ladders
The item design in this game is also incredible, I love the unique look and the armour sets are brilliant.
The continued development and respect for the customer/gamers is also a massive plus, something few developers seem to care about these days.
Cheers for a fantastic game.

anyways, to start it of i have recently started playing the first witcher game and must say that i am kinda torn...
i love the story, is something the rpg world has missed!
i love the characters , definately among the funnier and more interesting characters in any game i palyed yet!
i love the dark and secret aura over it all, the thought of being a monster/human/mini-wizard/assassin is <3!
- i hate the fighting system, it's totally worthless (an older game though, so i can bear with it.. maybe.)
- i hate the inventory system, dunno if any patches ever fixes it but i can't carry more than i can equip!
- i hate the meditation system, having to talk to someone to meditate? any patch fixed this? i mean, seriously.. -.-
- i hate the alchemy system, having to talk to someone to meditate to do alchemy? -.-'
i should maybe mention that i made the big mistake of trying the second one out a bit first at a friends place, then got interested in how he got there and so bought the first game and planning on buying the second one soon! now, the second game is totally loveable whilst the first in my spoiled eyes is totally disappointing in comparison, but i do like the idea behind it all and will deffo have to read the books, but unless some things are fixed through the patches i am installing the first game will be uninstalled faster than i can eat a swedish meatball!
will however definately get the second game cause i found it more to my liking, but i am also admitting to have high demands of games i play and The Witcheer one so far does not cut it. The Witcher 2 however have changed all the things i hated/disliked from the first game in ways i adore, makes my life easier! ^^
not sure if anyone out there will bother reading this little novel i just wrote, but i am one of the semi-haters, semi-lovers of the first witcher, and totally in love with the second witcher!
best regards / Kain
PS. anyone wishing to correct any grammar mistakes i have made, feel free to do so, always room for improvement! DS.

You can also meditate near outdoor fire places. If they are burning, you can just click on the fireplace. If they are out, you can reignite them using igni (fire) sign (if you have it), or just by clicking on them when you have flint in your inventory (easily found in containers and corpses, but also purchasable). Keep in mind that each flint is used up, so you will need to resupply.

just the ridiciolous fighting system and the inventory left... and the inventory i can probably live with.. ^^
will give the witcher a few more hours of active gameplay, but if Geralt doesn't start attacking when i want him to then he will not get any favors from me...

The mysterious nature of the quests could sometimes get to me. As could the grinding nature of the combat and some of the quests. Overall however, The Witcher is truly phenomenal and I'm really glad I gave it a chance. I bought it years ago but didn't play it because my computer was far too shit to run it. So I put it on the shelf. Then W2 came out and I still haven't gotten around to playing it. Then I finally said fuck it! Time to embark on an adventure of a life time!
And I did. Witcher did not disappoint, despite frustrating the shit out of me from time to time. Witcher 2 was perfect. When I finally got a hang of the combat, the game flowed so well, it's insane. Can't wait for Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk. I'm throwing my damn money on the screen, gief moi gamez!

Best RPG in years! Wonderful job CD Proj! By the way- I really liked Gothic 1 & 2, but Gothic 3 was a terrible disappointment. To me, this feels like what Gothic 3 should have been.
Between The Witcher, Crysis & my new 8800GT- my faith in PC Gaming has been restored. ›››
It is still incredible that the old 8800GT still can produce console crushing visuals.
