IGN forgot the most important part: Witchers are immune to STDs and so Geralt bangs every maid, witch, lady, and female magical creature during his quest and collects nude selfies.
everyone who met Geralt knows:1. He is a witcher.2. Has horse named Roach.3. Hates portals.4. Want to play Gwent.
Watched the whole video, still confused.
who else is playing witcher 3 but did not play the first 2?
I watched a 30 minute video explaining witcher, but somehow this 5 minute videos explained it better
They really should remaster Witcher 1 and 2.
Just picked up the witcher 3 thanks to a ps4 sale, this does help out.
Thumbs up if you watched the video first, then started Witcher 3, then came back again cuz you still had no idea wtf's going on.
1:50 those boob physics..
Witcher knowledge upgraded by 2
this video REALLY needs captions, because of all those crazy names
Actually, it was Emperor Emhyr who hired Letho to kill the Kings, not Sheala de Tancarville.
The witcher 3 and batman arkham night and metal gear Solid 5 the phamton pain are MASTERPICES already in my list:) 10/10....
The Wild Hunt: Every decision you make will bring devastation!
I haven't played any Witcher game but the 3rd one got my attention and would definitely give it a try. Thanks for the 5 minutes story-line! May 19 it is. :)
That confused me more. What's Milfgard? I love milfs.
THANK YOU I FINALLY KNOW WTF IS HAPPENING
Since Game of Thrones is ending(the show is catching up with the end of the books) it would be genius for someone to make a similar styled show using the Witcher lore on HBO....just an idea.
I spent damn near 45 minutes watching unnecessarily long videos to try and understand the story up until Witcher 3 and was just getting confused until I watched this one. Clear and to the point, no wasting time explaining things I don't need to know. Thank you.
finally a usefull IGN video
video should has name TW1 and TW2 game in 5 minutes :D this is only top of iceberg of witcher stories :D
Anyone else want a witcher 2 remaster
OMG ty ty ty so much! i was so confused after i started the witcher 3, and had no idea what the references to these past characters were.
5 mins isn't enough to recap the story
The scoia'tael don't want equal rights with humans, they want their own empire separate from humans like it was before the humans arrived on the continent, following the conjunction of the spheres. In fact, most scoia'tael would see every human killed if they had the chance and the power.
People should still at least play Witcher 2, it's an incredible RPG that still stands today in terms of gameplay, graphics and story. You make a lot of important decisions in it and a few will impact the story of Witcher 3, such as the choice of sparing or killing Letho the Kingslayer Witcher. I know this for a fact because you can also slightly see him from behind in one of the trailers. And of course if you do play the 1 or 2 you will actually care for the characters that Geralt encounters such as Triss, Yennefer, Dandelion, Zoltan and many more.
really well made, good video
Before i finish, does this video spoil Witcher 3?
Jesus...0.o that story is like if game of thrones had a baby with Metal gear solid! I love it, but OMG that's dense! ^u^
Random stranger: hey witcher, why do you carry 2 swords. Geralt: one's steel, other is silver, both are for monsters.
Yep, still have no idea what's going on
I genuenly thank you for this IGN.. THis is a helpfull video,that will improve the witcher 3 experience for players like me who are new to the series..Hope you do more videos like this for games like Metal Gear Solid ,Splinter Cell,Hitman..While i do love these games i haven't played the really old ones extensively and get into their story and i don't think i am able to pick them up and play them(talkin about games like Spliter cell:Pandora tommorow or Hitman:Silent Assasin)Please make more videos like these that tell the story of their predecsesors!
This series is the one of the few videos i actually like from ign
This was really helpful for noobs of the witcher world! Thank you!
So is this video spoiling The Witcher 3? Or is it saying what happened in the last 2 games so I know what's going on in the 3rd one?
I watched several vids about the story behind Witcher 3 now and this one is:-Shortest.-Most detailed.-Most interesting.-Best described,tl;dr: Thanks for this!
THANK YOU! This is like the 4th video I've watched trying to catch up. Definitely the best explanation yet.
Amazing storyline, just bought the Witcher 3 and I needed this.
Is there any chance of a Witcher one and two remake?
Love the pace of this recap. Fast, informative and no nonsense. The next one may last 30 minutes (or so ;P)
Very informative,the best recap I've seen by far!
The best IGN videos by far
Thank you IGN, ready to go for the WILD HUNT!!!
I'm on my 3rd playthrough of witcher 3.
what's the music at the beginning called? That really epic theme?
Nice! Didn't know the story before witcher 2!
omfg can you repeat that in slow motion please. Should have made it 10 mins.
Want know the Geralt's past? Read the Sapkowski's Witcher saga.
"DUN DUN DUUUUN" this killed me more than Geralts death by the humans
finally, a good recap. I've watched like 5 before this one and this is the best.
That ... was actually a very good summary :D Props, IGNi.
I thank you immensely.
Thanks for this but I will stop myself from watching this until I finish Witcher 2 :P
You forgot to mention that the Kingslayer is also Brick from Borderlands.
Thank you! I've played both games and just started The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and I totally forgot the story behind it
Thanks for the catch up, PS4 copy should be here either tomorrow or Monday :)
Alrighty that's good enough. Now I can buy this shit!!!
What the hell Letho is the bad guy? I just helped this motherf#cker in The witcher 3 and sent him to Kaer Moren
Makes me even more excited. Excellent stuff IGN.
I watched 9 hours of Witcher 1 and 2 youtube videos, plus some other videos explaining the lore, including this one. STILL hard to follow :/Maybe I just need to sit down and recap in my mind.
That's how you do a recap
never got to play the first Witcher, and only finished about half of the Witcher 2. I wanted to, but yah know...Bloodborne lol. This was helpful but now I feel I want an extended video so i can truly absorb the lore before tomorrow. Great vid though!
