The Witcher 3 is, for many, the best RPG of this generation and among the best games of the generation. The immense world combined with superb storytelling, believable worldbuilding, and a cast of unique characters made the game a perfect ending of the epic trilogy. If you happen to own the game on any platform other than GOG you can grab a free copy provided by GOG.
