Still here? Cool.
During the game of the year podcasts both Brad and Dan discussed how they completely lost their momentum in The Witcher 3 right at the find Dandelion quest-line, despite feeling pretty great about the game up until that point. I realized that I was in that exact same boat. I was super high on the whole Crones and Bloody Baron quest, feelin' fine dicing up weird ass monsters and ghouls, right up until I got to the whack quest line that lead me running all over Novigrad talking to boring NPCs at 15 FPS for hours (I was playing on PS4). I eventually got tired of looking for fucking Dandelion and put the game down in favor of other upcoming releases.
After listening to The Besties game of the year podcast, it sounds like Polygon's Justin McElroy also tapped out at the exact same spot. This made me wonder, has anyone else had the same experience? Have you tried going back since? I really want to finish this game at some point, but after being away from it for so long and with 2016 releases already lining up hard and fast, I'm just not sure I'll be able to get over that Dandelion hump.
