The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

It is, ultimately, an extreme attention to detail that transforms The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt into a masterclass in world-building; and it is the value brought by all elements that contribute to that aspect of the game that makes it possible to overlook some of its flaws.

The fact of the matter is that The Witcher 3 is so big that it has got it all: adventure, horror, drama, misery, joy, shock, and ambiguous morality. It is a world that parallels the real one in various ways; not just because it often puts players in situations in which a completely happy outcome is just not possible, but also due to how it devotes so much energy to such numerous details that it feels alive and organic to a point that has only ever been met by few other games.
