The Witcher 3: Game of the Year Edition


It’s finally out. Well, released in the manner that I would like. A video game I’ve been hearing nothing but great things about since it was released. 

The Witcher 3, but the Game of the Year Edition.

Now, I hardly ever buy or play computer video games when they’re brand new. Especially if I have a feeling, or if it’s likely that future content will be coming somewhere down the road (great examples is The Elder Scrolls series). For starters, my hardware is never not quite up to snuff to run the game ‘properly’ (all settings maxed out!). So, when it comes to computer games I’m used to sort of waiting. What I do, is wait for the deluxe / game of the year type package to arrive before I get it. Or, if there is no ‘package’, I’ll buy everything related to the game in one shot. Once the company and developers say “that’s it, we’re finished on __. No future content will be coming.” I think “OK, now I can get it!” or shortly thereafter. That way, I get the ‘complete’ experience, for the price of the game when it initially came out. Of course, that means I have to wait….

And so, earlier this week, the Game of the Year Edition for The Witcher 3 has come out.

You get The Witcher 3, and it’s two expansions, Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine and everything else that was ever released for the game. 

So if you were waiting on The Witcher 3 like I was, wait no more. Unless you’re waiting for a sale, of course. What I’m getting at, though, is that the content is all there now, for the price of the game at launch. 

So now that The Witcher 3 is finished (no more forthcoming official content) set forth and enjoy!
