I played the first game heck I bought it 3 times. But it's one of them games i could never see to the end. Now with Witcher 2 on us how much do I need to know story wise from the first do you guys think ill need to know?
How much do I need to know about the first game?
Geralt is a monster hunter with amnesia.
Big spoiler for the witcher 1
I enjoyed Witcher 2, but I don't know that playing it will be integral to this experience. The ending does set up for the next game, but its one single ending. If you don't feel like putting Witcher back in:
The devs have said you don't need to play Witcher 1 to understand Witcher 2.
TW2 will include a save importing feature which will transfer the choices you made in the first game, but very little info has been said about it since it was announced. I'm actually wondering if its even in the game honestly.
I was wondering this too. Tried to play the first... and found out it had the worst combat of any game I've ever played. Wait til an icon appears and click... ugh.
So far, from what I can tell, the 2nd game will have better combat. I'm just not sure if it's going to be a memorable game... or just another RPG to hold me over til Diablo 3. Decisions decisions...
