Skyrim

I couldn't get into The Witcher 3 like I did Skyrim. I played hundreds of hours on Skyrim just exploring and questing. The game is so interesting. I still play it occasionally even now.

I'm All about exploring

I prefer the world on Skyrim, it is so big and vast you don't get bored exploring it. I always preferred exploration games ever since I was a kid. Escaping the real world with every liberty possible is the goal here, just forget about stuff and relax.

I definitely agree with you Cristian. The world is huge and one of the best things about Skyrim, in my opinion, is the fact that you can do almost whatever you want. You can explore and kill mobs which has nothing to do with the storyline or quests, but it will still give you an advantage in the game later on. Everything is connected in a great way.

Open world.

I still thoroughly enjoy any game that has mods/extra options, alongside open world roaming. It allows me to have fun for a lot longer than a linear single player game could ever.

Graphics

The graphics are amazing on the Witcher 3, better than Skyrim Remaster IMO. This was a hard choice for me because I love both games. I actually have more hours in Skyrim but I just recently started Witcher 3 (2 months ago or so, I have about 20-25 hours in it).

I like the gameplay of both and each has their cons and pros.

The graphics is certainly way better in Witcher 3 compared to both Skyrim and Skyrim Remastered. I actually started to play Skyrim Remastered yesterday again, just because I wanted to compare the graphics myself instead of watching all the youtube videos that explains all the "good things" with the Remastered version. - And yeah, there's no doubt about it. Witcher 3 looks amazing.

What's not to like

I'm not a huge fan of RPG's with pre-made characters, but The Witcher 3 is one of the few exceptions. The story is easily one of the best I've ever played; the depth of choice and player agency offered to the player is mind-boggling. And if Bioware RPG's are more your speed, then I have good news: you can boink a ton of female characters in this game, so if that's your thing then feel free go wild. And if roleplaying's not your thing, the combat is tight and the visuals are absolutely stunning. It's a game that doesn't get enough love in my opinion.

The world of Geraly

I don't agree at all that the world of Skyrim feels alive. Quite the contrary, I think it feels pretty barren and lifeless at times. A lot of copypasted landmasses and dungeons. I'm sure The Witcher has those as well, but the devs have made a good job of hiding it.

There's just more happening in the world of Geralt as you explore. It feels like the NPCs has more to say than the 2 recycled sentences you hear everytime you walk past someone in Skyrim.
