    Who else prefers Yen over Triss?

  • hootenanee29

    In my ending I didn't get triss or yenn, I did get roach though, so me and him are living on our own in kaer morhen just me n my horse and our weird half man half horse kids, not how I expected things to end up for geralt but hey at least he got someone to share his bed with :P

  • Cosmo Kramer

    After you beat the game, the world feels kinda empty. They should have made it so (depending which ending you got) Yen and Ciri are at Kaer Morhen and you can interact with them at any time. It would be cool to go on Witcher contracts with Ciri.

  • Miguel Luhulima

    "I'll have plenty of work chasing monsters around forgotten villages."hit me straight in the heart ;_;

  • 124Nightwing

    This ending is so bittersweet and I love it, but I still prefer the witcher ending as my first choice. Everything turns out sort of okay without Ciri if The Black Ones win the war, Ciri becomes a witcher like she wanted, and I get to live out my days bangin' Yen.

  • Shammo Hamid

    "What do you know about saving the world silly? You're but a witcher."That line hit me hard.

  • TheSestren

    It's interesting people say this isn't the best ending like they're the authority on what is the best ending for everyone lol... Ciri says she'd rather be a Witcher when she's still thinking the only solution to her problems is to keep running away. At the end of the game she chooses to stop running and face her responsibilities head on. Part of those responsibilities is her birthright - being an empress. If you get this ending the wars end and millions are saved. Yes, it means Ciri doesn't get to keep living a simple life, and that's maybe sad for her individually, but look at all she accomplishes as a result! It's a bittersweet ending I think, where Ciri grows up and faces up to who she is. To me, that's the best ending.

  • Pokerface1337

    THIS is how a father should treat the daughter. Even if Geralt is not her bilological father... still... this is how it should be :)

  • Vemon Snaek

    This is the best ending. NOT THE HAPPIEST ENDING.

  • Darian

    while ciri may make a good empress its clear she does not want toduring the part were geralt is seeing her off its not surprising shes holding back crying her eyes out, though a few tears still get away though.if i was ever able to play this game i would aim for having her become a witcherwhile in that ending she does part ways from geralt it dosent say for good, witchers do wander and take contracts, she would probly stop and visit with him and yennefer/triss from time to time

  • VoidWaIker

    How's this better than the ciri becomes a witcher ending

  • The Awesome Alex

    more like sad ending the badass ending where ciri becomes a witcher

  • Cirilla Fiona Elen Riannon

    hmmm, i prefer to be a Witcher ! Who agree it ? <3

  • Jake Tryon

    this is one of those endings that are not happy, but yet beautiful and soothing. Like after many friends that have died, but the battle is over, and all is well.

  • Miguel Sosa

    This was my New Game Plus Ending.Ciri becomes Empress with the desire and capability to make Nilfgaard a better place.Radovid's obviously dead, the North belongs to the South and Temeria has internal self-governance; again with someone like Ciri at the helm the future does look very bright indeed for the entire Northern Realms.Emhyr steps down and finally does some good teaching Ciri the art of politics, which she will balanced with basic human goodness taught by Geralt. Together they will ensure the Empress' reign is prosperous and just.Skellige prospers like never before under Cerys. Previously their entire culture was founded on the hard truth that the only way to survive was to plunder the seas. But now there is a new more peaceful and prosperous beginning in the works. And given Ciri's time in Skellige there may be peace and mutual cooperation between the Isles and Nilfgaard, unthinkable!Geralt, free from his last wish and able to truly choose again, ends up with Triss. Yes, it's not faithful to the books and Triss did take advantage of his amnesia. But she has many good traits like kindness, bravery and if you've read the books the way she treated Geralt was not so much malice as much as it was desperation. She had been searching for love for decades and Geralt was the only person who had a good heart. In addition ,let's be honest, Yennefer is a challenging person to live with.They retire to Kovir, Triss making waves as an advisor and Geralt taking the occasional contract and maybe even becoming a swordsman instructor! And with Kovir's status as a powerful neutral country they will definitely see Ciri again!All round a superb ending, all revolving around Ciri and her potential to begin a new era of happiness for all! Thumbs up if you agree!

  • iseeicyicetea

    Just came here to say that this is not the best ending :p

  • jensh92

    You needn't say goodbye.... What kind of hogwash is that...

  • Ian N. Martinez

    This might not be the happiest ending, but in my opinion it is the best ending of the three. With Ciri on the throne you can expect a righteous ruler who will put an end to war and the land will finally know peace, all while Geralt gets to happily spend the rest of his days with his beloved (Triss or Yen) and doing witcher work.

  • Trafalgar Lawn

    The "yeah we do" option sounds out of character and makes Geralt seem petty. The other option ("course not") makes more sense and sounds more in character. That and HELLO. She can see Geralt whenever she damn well wants no different than Ehmyr. Send a messenger to arrange an audience with him. Problem solved. Or hell, Geralt and Triss/Yennefer can simply move to Nilfgaard. Not in a palace or anything, but within reasonable travel range. This is a good ending, but really lazy from a writing standpoint. They went out of their way to make it bittersweet without realizing the numerous easy solutions that allow Geralt to remain a neutral/retired Witcher away from politics while still being able to see Ciri on a regular basis. Guess they had to guilt trip players into picking the silly "Ciri becomes a Witcher" ending.

  • Redcrosse Knight

    Got this last night. Wept like a child. Beautiful. 10/10, CDPR.

  • Allen W

    Lol, this is not the best ending.

  • Rudolf H

    When I got this ending at first I thought Ciri failed stopping the white frost and died (White orchard covered in snow) and Geralt spending some time with his friends, my heart sank. Then I saw Ciri which make me happy and relieved!... But then the Nilfgardian arrive and Ciri departed with Geralt... damn my heart sank again... Damn it CDproject!

  • Haragoth

    Ouch, this ending would be a severe kick in the teeth to anyone who's read the books. They're all about Geralt and company keeping Ciri away from Emhyr (Emperor of Nilfgaard). This ending would truly suck, as would Geralt ending up with Triss. Geralt truly loved Yenn in the books......and she's the best all around, the rest of the chicks can burn. :D

  • Justin Coal

    ok so this ending is not the best "lore" wise. This is one of those "what if" bitter sweet kind of endings. The ending were she chooses to become a witcher is more lore friendly and is more cannon to her background and the games story. This is supported by the fact that she was brought up by witchers, trained to be a witcher and has the skill of a witcher. She didn't really have any good interaction with her actual father not to mention a lack of experience with the role of a leader. Also like geralt she hate politics.

  • Corristo89

    She can jump between worlds just by wanting it, I think she can drop by Kovir once in a while ;-) She's empress, she can do what she wants.

  • Andy Russell

    I actually thought this was the best ending. Only because it made logical sense. The one where they fake her death so she become a witcher is sorta like a fairy tail ending, which doesn't matter because if you end up with Triss or Yen you retire so yah. This one makes the most sense.

  • Ja Zy

    I had a Ciri as a Witcher ending (mostly because when my daughter told me "we need to go there" I was like "ah, yeah sure, everything else can wait") but I think this is better ending. Sad. Heartbreaking. But better. She'd be just another Witcher chasing drowners around some remote villages, and while she already saved the world from White Frost it's still torn by all the wars and all the racist and xenophobic ideas that were planted along the way. She has a wisdom to fix it. And I believe she has a will to make the place better for everyone including elves. As for the "but she'd be happier as a Witcher" argument, she had a choice here and she made her decision - something she had not in my play-through as we have never been to Vizima and she has never had a chance to talk to Emhyr and listen to his offer. So I think this is actually the most fulfilling ending: Ciri became adult, decided the time of all-fun chasing monsters is over and picking up a job that maybe not the peak of her desires but is extremely needed and beneficial to all.

  • mink N

    This ending make Witcher 3 ......Epic!

  • a8lg6p

    I've finished three times and always get the witcher ending. (A) I don't feel this is the right ending for Ciri. I don't think it's what she really wants, what makes her happy... And it kinda feels like everyone who's been scheming about her her whole life finally get their way, and she finally just gives up and accepts it. It's the ending where Emhyr and the Lodge win.And (B) I never saw any reason why either I myself as the player or Geralt as the character would want to make the choice to say: No, I'm not going to rush off with you to support you and be at your side to avenge the death of the guy who was like father to us both... What's really important is that you chat with your dickhead father who almost decided to impregnate you, and who almost had the two people you care most about in the world, one of whom was me, put to death. I just can't imagine any reason why Geralt would do that, or why I should want him to, aside from curiosity in seeing the alternate ending.As for it being better for the world... Well, it's not even a real world. I know, the characters aren't real either. But I care about them a lot more. Also, I never really believed that just having the right person in charge with solve the world's problems even in the real world.

  • Seamus Mac Seáin

    There is no environment in this entire game elegant enough to match how Triss looks in that elven dress. Next to her, everything just looks...slovenly.

  • LoudAngryJerk

    yeah i can safely say that this is not the best ending.

  • MouseCaBoom

    It is bittersweet but it is best,really a masterpiece..

  • Drake Martin

    Just one thing... READ THE BOOKS! and after that, believe me, you will see, this is not the right choice.

  • Hacker0_o

    The frame rate gave me 20 types of cancer. That's why I play on a PC.

  • ganjeli

    best ending is ciri becoming a witcher...

  • The Conspiratorist

    Why do people complain about the witcher ending, but don't bat an eye at the ending of the Last of Us? lol

  • SweetPleb

    Fact that so many ppl can debate on a game’s ending and with so many preferences on which ones are best is a testimony to the greatness of this game. Best game of all time. <3

  • AMC124c41

    To everyone saying that all Ciri wants to do is wonder the world, remember her conversation with Geralt about where she has been, she has visited other worlds ans such but she got tired of it. I got this ending and it just felt natural to me and a nice conclusion to all the character development during the game. The only difference in my game was that I chose Yen over Triss.

  • ashley m16

    Traveled half the world to find you, but i never intended to force anything on you 💕

  • ShadowSamuel

    Any ending with Nilfgaardian victory is bad to me. Next time he'll conquer Skellige more powerful than ever.

  • BallsToWalls

    This is the cannon ending in my opinion. If you let all options out on the table for Ciri, she is always going to pick Empress. Even tho she is not going to be happy there, she did it for the people and it's her choice. Giving her freedom to decide for herself and supporting her is what a good ending is, if you choose to be a controlling and not supporting parent she is going to die in the end. By getting witcher ending you are not really giving her an option to choose, because you never took her to her father. Even if she is not going to be happy there, she is doing it for all of the people and it's her choice after she's seen every option that is available. Also many people would want to use her for her power, she is safest in the castle defended by tons of guards. And not to mention 1 wrong move in the wilderness and she is dead, there is no going back. Even if this is a sad ending, parents needs to let go of their child and let it decide what it wants with it's life, and support it to the very end. If you look at it from the bright side, Ciri has teleporting powers, she can visit Geralt anytime in Toussaint, in his farm. I finnished this ending 30 minutes ago and i cried, it was so full of emotion. CD Projekt Red... you have made a masterpiece.

  • Colonder

    For whole conversation Geralt is poker faced which is not really suprising since he's a witcher. But look at his sight from 11:30 - I fell like humanity has no word to describe all that pain and sadness in his eyes. It's like a father letting her daughter go in spite of their emotions and relationship. Music, the fact that he's a witcher and yet his sight at that moment full of regret makes my heart rip apart. Damn, where're those goddamn tissues...

  • ndfreak333

    This is the best ending in terms of what is best for the witcher world as a whole. Emhyr will eventually die and Ciri will do more for this world at the head of the Nilfgaardian empire than she could ever do being a simple witcher chasing monsters. However, I still prefer the ending where she becomes a witcher because I feel that she has done enough for the world and she deserves to be doing what will make her the happiest and I believe that is her being a witcher.This being said, I will probably go for the ending listed in this video on my current (3rd) play-through since the first two times I ended up with her becoming a witcher. Thanks for sharing this Why Gamer.

  • Aleksa Petrovic

    Damn you are heartless. You could've said that this is not the end even if you knew it's not true.

  • Kabegami The Great

    aw man, can you only have that daughter and father moment if you choose the empress ending? I don't recall having this one.

  • garrettcall

    As is the case with almost every decision in the Witcher series, there is not a "best ending". There are multiple paths to multiple endings where each is riddled with successes and failures, positives and negatives. It cannot then be stated that one conclusion is better than another, as that would be similar to asserting one flawed gemstone is more attractive than another. Each stone bares similar characteristics, yet the color and composition of each will certainly be dissimilar. They are then each beautiful in their own right.Considering Ciri becoming a Witcher (as many here have claimed to be the best ending), she finally reaches her dream of following in Geralt's footsteps. She desires to help everyday people from that which they cannot protect themselves from, monsters and unjust lords. Ciri can have a face-to-face hand in improving the state of people's lives. She will indeed save many lives.If, however, she becomes empress Ciri's heart of justice and care toward her people would guide the empire into an era of prosperity and peace from top to bottom. Having mature out in the world, she knows what is means to be both a peasant and a noble. She is the only one best equipped to join the hands of the people through the walls naturally built by a feudal system. The work she does as empress will improve not only individual persons, but entire countries.Each comes at a cost though. As a Witcher, Ciri gives up her right as heir to follow her dream and chase adventure. She becomes what she wants to be. Although she will do much good, she will not accomplish nearly as much good as she would as empress. As empress, with the new lands and resources her father recently acquired, she may be able to unite in peace kingdoms which have been trying to kill each other longer than almost anyone can remember. The wars which have ravaged villages and cities will end, the monsters which thrived on this despair will starve from lack of conflict and vanish, and those which look at each other as enemies may finally embrace as brothers and sisters. This comes at the terrible cost of her own personal freedom as she may never be able to follow her dream. The time she would rather spend out in the open air she would instead spend in court arguing law and mending broken relationships between kingdoms.Who is to say one is better than another?TL;DR, They're both good endings :P

  • BioTek

    In my opinion this is the "best" ending because it plays with your emotions, making you feel happy and then sad, unlike the boring ending in which ciri becomes a witcher(just my opinion). And I really like that you said good bye to her, that makes it even more sad and epic at the same time, but it feels like it's the right thing to do. (I love drama)

  • Evomre

    Ciri is way too emotionally unstable to be empress. She has the demeanor of a pouty child. That kingdom is screwed royally.

  • Random Hamster

    Witcher ending best ending. This one is just heartbreaking.

  • Sakarraterrum

    Its fine but I prefer my ending: Ciri become a Witcher, Geralt retired to live with Yen, Radovid won the war. I feel more realistic than this one.

  • Bagus Saeba

    good God the atmosphere of the game really get me...

  • Sammy i

    BEST ENDING EVER!!! is this

  • ZePP HED

    I really loved this game, but by the end that damn tavern music made me want to throw the TV against the wall

  • Luciana Silva

    This is so far the best ending, mine Ciri turn a witcher and Geralt choose Yen but Radovid won the war. This game is amazing, i liked so much that i'll play again and i want Ciri as empress. Sorry my bad english and thank for sharing :)

  • Holodoc Prime

    "You'll be fine. You are a witcher." The very definition of proof that this is the wrong ending....

  • Pretty Handsome

    Canon ending is Empress Ciri and chose Yen.


    Although this is difficult to see...but I would still want ciri to become the queen. This is not the ending Ciri deserved, but this is the one she need. I mean, what is she gonna do? Become a witcher and live in danger just for couple coins? I rather have her as a queen where she can have the power to make a difference and live in comfort. And it's not like Geralt and Ciri are not going to see each other again. It's nice to have a queen daughter, but she's ne er going to get married though, because I said so. CD-R I'm mailing you guys razors if you guys never do that, okay so can be a les but that's it.

  • Richard Le

    let there be a witcher 4, holy shit mans want to play so bad

  • Godunow100

    Sooooooo is she going to abolish slavery in Nilgaard (which would probably lead to serious economic crisis through the empire?

  • Giovanni Corraliza

    The ending where she becomes a witcher is better

  • William Miller

    I've wanted to try this ending so many times but when Philippa clearly indicates plans for Ciri I just can't follow through. No game has ever made me care for a character so much.

  • Kronos camron

    Man, Ciri is so cute, I love herthat beautiful little swallow... in a fatherly kind of way.

  • John Cunningham

    People hate this ending, but I think it's rather fitting. Sure, Ciri can become a witcher, but that's not as epic as her stopping the white frost, and then fulfilling her even greater destiny as the new Empress of Nilfgaard, or as Conan said on his show, MILF-gard, which it would likely be changed to if she ever has children. Even so, Nilfgaard wasn't inherently EVIL in this game--no more so than Radovid. Think of them like the Roman Empire. And, it was Ciri's birthright. Perhaps people think it's sad because she has to say goodbye to Geralt. Well guess what? That's life, ya' pansies. That doesn't make it a bad ending. p.s. I got the ending where she becomes a Witcher. I'd call that the true neutral ending.

  • Giuseppe Fortinelli

    This is not the best ending :)

  • DeluxeMango

    I think it would have been better if they would have a made a Kovir map too, so you didnt have to be left to play an earlier stage of the game (Before the end battle) I have found there are also people side quests which are tied to Kovir. It would have been a nice edition, but ah well :).

  • aqwsd1423

    hi guyscan someone please tell what soundtrack that started 9:05

  • scri4ta

    i dont like this end of the story

  • James The Wizard

    you'll get the empress ending if you didnt act like a supportive father. every decision you make with ciri has to be supportive of what she wants to do. if she's sad/angry you dont pick choices to tell her to calm down. or move on, she'll be alright. you're her father figure and you must spoil her and make her feel you will be with her no matter what. you tell her in kaer morhen that she can choose her own destiny etc. no one can tell her what to do and not to do. dont be overprotective. if you do everything she wants to do: she ends up being a witcher following in your footsteps. I consider the empress ending a BAD one because she chooses Emhyr instead of you. You push her away to a life choice she does not want in the first place. Not the destiny that she wants to choose. As a father it's your job to tell your daughter to follow her heart and always be there to fight the people who will try to hurt her and control her.

  • Isaac Orndorff

    I'm pissed. I wanted the Witcher ciri ending, but I didn't know that is going to the Emperor would force her to become Empress. I really don't see that as being a fair choice on the game's part, I just wanted Ciri to head out the Emperor and make a decision herself.

  • Baby Sauce

    could you sell that sword she gave to you for money? are there high stats on the sword?... I'm gonna sell the sword 😏
