Geralt of Rivia doesn't need introduction. But if you're still somebody unfamiliar, here's some news. The Witcher, the flagship game series of CD Projekt Red based on the fantasy novels (and short stories) by Andrzej Sapkowski of the same name, has sold more than 50 million copies worldwide. Although not as phenomenal in terms of sales figures as GTA 5, The Witcher crossing the 50 million mark is by no means a small feat.

This is because there have been only three large-budget Witcher games so far, technically speaking. The original was published in the year 2007. The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings followed in 2011. They were great games but definitely not fantastic games. But then The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt happened in 2015 and the (gaming) world saw wonder. CD Projekt Red has always had a knack for good storytelling, but Wild Hunt has also offered gamers a wide, exhaustive open world filled with all kinds of folklore and monsters to discover beyond the content of their hearts. It was that which made it special. It was that which made it perfect.

Today, you can pick up the Wild Hunt and you can always find yourself shocked at the amount of detail that the developers were able to pull off, five years ago. Wild Hunt is one of those rare games where you want to explore every nook and cranny, because you will find something new and breathtaking every time you do it.
