Obama Isn't Really Into His Copy Of The Witcher 2

Back in 2011, Polish prime minister Donald Tusk gave US president Barack Obama a copy of The Witcher 2, because it's pretty much the best thing Poland has ever done. Sadly, Mr Obama doesn't seem to have actually played it, as he reveals in this new talk recorded by Poland's TVN24.

Here's the full quote, via a PR rep for The Witcher:

The last time I was here, Donald gave me a gift, the video game developed here in Poland that's won fans the world over, The Witcher. I confess, I'm not very good at video games, but I've been told that it is a great example of Poland's place in the new global economy. And it's a tribute to the talents and work ethic of the Polish people as well as the wise stewardship of Polish leaders like prime minister Tusk.

Really, The Witcher might be a little tough for someone who hasn't played that many video games. He and Michelle should check out Mario Kart 8.


    Noooo! Why? Why? WHY?!

    WHY did I believe this article would actually say something of any value?!

      Why come to a website, just to complain about the content of said website?

      I guess you are just a 'glass is half-full' kinda person :P

    If the article is from a Kotaku US "writer", it's ____________

    Guy Never played a video game in his life...
    (paraphrasing Homer Simpson)

    China gives pandas as gifts of diplomacy. Poland gives video games.

      Poland wins!!
      Seriously I was listening to Radio National the other day where they were talking about Video Game entrepreneurs in Sweden (Mojang, DICE, King) spearheading that country's transformation from a welfare state to an economic powerhouse

        Would be great to hear the video game industry discussed more seriously in the western world. Pach-Attack is all that comes to mind - but that's still from the 'inside' really.
