Is this game the end all be all of RPGs?

I really need a new game to play. A great ass-kicking western RPG that doesn't slack in any department. Is this the game I need?

What RPGs do you like? TW2 is a story based game.

Yes. Buggy and glitchy, to be sure, but the darkest, most interesting RPG to date. Also, the combat and graphics are epic too.

Also, try the Mass Effect series for a really personal and emotional journey.

Yep. It's a very story-driven game. It's dark and filled with political intrigue and morality is grey. Whatever choice you make there are bad and good consequences. The graphics are fantastic and so is the gameplay. But if you like games with exploration like Oblivion/Skyrim then this is not it.

Also, like it's already been said, Mass Effect is similar in that it's very story driven but the choices you make are clearer and easier...and it's set way in the future so the setting is very different. I love it too but not as much as The Witcher.

Just get the witcher 2 (of course the enhanced edition). you won't be dissapointed at all. The story is one of the best I think in the whole RPG genre, gameplay is outstanding, replayability is good too because of countless moral decisions and the soundtrack is good. Simply one of the most mature story driven awesome RPG give it a try and geralt is a badass. :D

No offence, but try asking that on a non-Witcher forum. No offence, but I think u can already predict what answers you're gonnna get from fans of the Witcher 2.

The game assumes you are an adult, which is a nice switch from most of the RPGs out there. It's got tremendous writing, acting, graphics and combat. So yeah, it's pretty much the best single player RPG out there. And it's chock-a-block with profanity and sex, which is a fun bonus.

Why am I having such a hard time with the combat in the beginning. It's tough to master.
