Many things happen over the course of your adventures in The Witcher 3. Some are forgettable. Most are far from it.

Here, then, is an objective and comprehensive list of…ah, who am I kidding, here’s a massive list of the things I loved most from a game I love so damn much.


(Note: I say Everything* in the headline because while I have opinions on almost everything in the game, from Dwarven Ale to NPC lines like “another drifter in from Temeria”, I don’t want to keep you here all day. This, then, is just the best stuff.)

3. The Tower of Mice. Just…holy shit.

2. Throwing a baby in an oven.

1. The “Good Dad” ending.


  • Unicorn sex scene not being #1 and Gwent not on the list at all makes this list terrible and makes me question Luke Plunkett’s judgement on everything.

  • I just finished the game (Still need to play the Expansion stuff though) and thought the whole thing was fantastic! Will take time to write a more in-depth reply when I can. You know when you finish a game and end up lying in bed looking back, reflecting on the ending, what became of world events, characters sub-plots and in general the whole experience for hours (and coming days)? Yeah it was one of those games. Will stay with me for a while I think, absolute amazing.

  • Yeah, how poignant was it when he finally meets up with Ciri but thinks that she’s dead … Then she stirs! … And the joy of him finding little Ciri again!

    BRAVO CDPR! Can’t wait to see what you’ll do with Cyberpunk 2077!
