Deanna Plays is a monthly feature on this blog where every third Thursday of the month I talk about something related to video games. Sometimes these are reviews of the games themselves, sometimes it's a list of books to read if you play X, and anything in between!

Since this Month is Wyrd and Wonder, I wanted to make this month's post fantasy based. This post really should have gone up last week...but I was on vacation and didn't have time to post so deal with it. Today, I am going to talk about a game that I played forever -- The Witcher 3!
The Witcher games are based off the fantasy series by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski of the same name. It might sound familiar to you, because I reviewed the third book in the series on this blog last week. I played this game at the behest of my partner who said the game had one of the best story lines he's experienced in a video game. I never played the first (it was PC only), but I played the second one, so when the third game came out I ended up spending a lot of time watching him play it. I was hooked, the game looked really cool.

The Witcher 3 is an amazing open-world RPG, with some pretty legit graphics. Also, the development company tends to only work on one game at a time, so you can really see all the craft they put into their games. (Patiently waits for Cyperpunk 2077 until the day I die). I love the open-world concept of this game, because of course there is natural quest line, but you also can just do side quests all day long. The insane map for this game has all these question marks you can explore, and there are A LOT! The completionist in me really tried to go to them all, but I ended up giving up. I did become the Gwent champion though. So there is that.

Let me tell you I played a ton of this game. 253 hours to be exact, which is a lot of time to play a game. Do I regret it? HELL FUCKING NO! This game was fun as shit. It makes you make bad decisions, and you are always like, "politics? I just want to kill monsters." I live for Geralt of Rivia, and this game was so freaking fun to play. 

If you are a RPG player and like games like Skyrim, I totally recommend this one. It's great, I spent a lot of time with this game that now I don't know what game to really dedicate time to. (LOL, it's Stardew Valley right now if you are really wondering.)
