The Hopes And Dreams Of A New Era Rest On The Witcher 3?
Perhaps it's just because the generation has disappointed thus far, at least in terms of dramatic technological leaps.
But whatever the reason, it seems clear now that everyone is expecting greatness from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. More importantly, they're expecting CD Projekt Red's title to be the epitome of a "next-gen" product.
Through the first year and a half of the new generation, one could best describe the reactions of the gaming populace as "meh." It's not like we haven't had good games, even great games. We have indeed enjoyed plenty of quality titles; it's just that we haven't been blown away, you know? And after the monumental lead-up to the launches of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, expectations were through the roof. In a lot of ways, those expectations haven't been met just yet.
Some say we have to wait for games like Uncharted 4: A Thief's End before we see a true example of "next-gen" quality. Others say that because the new consoles are more accessible to developers, we're already seeing games that are pushing the hardware and as such, drastic increases in tech quality just won't happen. But no matter what, I think it falls to certain games to wow the sh** out of us when so many others fall short. And this year, at least so far, it's all falling on the shoulders of The Witcher 3.
Anyone out there nervous?
