The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been hailed by fans as one of the greatest games of all time, eight years after its release - and I can’t argue with that.

I’ll admit. The Witcher 3 gets off to a slow start but if you can persevere past those opening hours, you’ll be treated to what is one of the best experiences in gaming. Isn’t that the case with so many RPGs though? There’s so much dialogue to get through as you learn about the lore of the world before you can really dive into the main stretch. If you’re a PlayStation Plus premium tier subscriber, you can actually sample four hours of the game right now via a new free trial. If season three of Netflix’s The Witcher has left you craving more, there’s no better time to dive in. If you’re here though, I’m guessing it’s because you’re a major fan - and you’re very much not alone in that.

Take a look at season three of The Witcher in action below.

Reddit user blackwolf57 took to the site to write, “Found this old screenshot of The Witcher 3 from 2020. One of the best games I’ve ever played.” It goes without saying that plenty of people agreed. Desiderius_ni wrote, “When The Witcher 3 came out, I played it for eight hours straight the first Saturday. I remember vividly how much the world sucked me in with those sunsets and the way Geralt's sword bumped around on his back as he rode along. The sound of the howling wind and the wonderful music made me want to just take Geralt and Roach on a big lonesome road-trip through the world.”

Unusedtruth added, “I've just started my first playthrough recently (about 50 hours in) and holy s**t, why did I wait this long? It's truly one of the best games I've ever played,” while zorewin said, “Same. Best game I ever played, nothing compared.”

Thankfully for us, there are so many Witcher games in the pipeline. There’s a brand new trilogy in the works. It carries on from The Witcher 3, but it’s not The Witcher 4 - potentially hinting towards a new protagonist / soft reboot situation. There’s also going to be a multiplayer Witcher and a remake of the first game. We’re feasting well.
