What have you done ...
Yesterday I finished the Blood and Wine “expansion”. A few months after finishing HoS and more than a year after finishing the original game. I feel sad. I am an RPG gamer for as long as I know, starting around 1995. Back then things like the original Fallout, Planescape, Baldur’s Gate impressed me – later games like Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, Golden Sun, Knights of the Old Republic, Deus Ex, Shenmui and Soul Reaver all added some RPG and story elements that grasped me. In the last few years, games like Skyrim, GTA, Dragon Age, Fallout, Dark Souls and Mass Effect came along – I finished them all, thinking “this is pretty good”. But now I’m lost, I feel like I’ve ended a series of books that I just didn’t want to end. The characters, the grim and true world, the choices that impact the story in ways I did not foresee and yet even though they hurt did not wish to revert. The sheer size of the three games combined, the graphics and smoothness of combat, the soundtrack - oh for the sake of things holy the soundtrack. But most important the complete story, the aftertaste, the endings, the memories.
What am I to do now? Go back to grinding shards in Dragon Age? Slay the 100th dragon in Skyrim without any feeling of direction or belonging? Listen to flat monologue with character development in Fallout 4 with an engine that breaks my setup? Extract more minerals from yet another planet in Mass Effect that stripped all character/loadout customisation? Grind more money for the next expansion of GTA V? Dark Souls came close … but only to allow it the right of comparison – losing in 4 out of 5 overall aspects. You’ve ruined me
I wish I spoke Polish, I wish I heard the stories and lore as a child. So … I’ll be here. Waiting, playing and reading some laid back things. I hope the Cyberpunk development team, management, marketing, sales, service, testing, everything works out. I hope it for myself, but also very very much for you – you’ve made some stupid fanboy of me. Bastards. Game of my life (so far), congratulations!"
