As it's the talk of the town and everyone's doing it, Joaby plunged himself into the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and loved myriad aspects of the game, but it wouldn't be a Joab experience without pitfalls glaringly opening up for him, and so he's brought his ranting self to AusGamers to present a case for why you should probably just play The Witcher 3 on easy.
Joaby and I are on odd pages in the same book. It's like one of us is reading upside down, but we both accuse one another of being that lopsided weirdo.
I play games like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Batman, The Evil Within and most shooters on the hardest difficulty setting available, but I hate the Souls games -- games he relishes the challenge from, as well as other games like Civilzation, but he also likes playing most of the aforementioned on settings that allow him to just sink into the world. We're the original odd couple!
I don't wholly agree with a lot of what he says here, particularly in combat, but his case is thoroughly thought through and meticulously articulated, so we thought we'd hand him a soapbox and let him run with his shocking suggestion of playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on easy.
