So few Witcher fans in here! :(

I thought that people who like BioWare's games would also really like CD Projekt RED's games. I know I do! I'm a huge Witcher fan!

I love the Witcher games as well, but I have games I consider better. Still though Witcher 2 is high on my list for its branching storyline and for having a Dragon which is far more than just "burn village, get gold, I am evil hurhur" which i am getting so f..... tired of in games. I know dragons are popular, but for gods sake could someone start to remember that these beings are supposedly highly intelligent and not always evil?

The only games I consider to be better are (some of) the Zelda games to be honest. Which games do you consider to be better than The Witcher?

Also, have you read the books?

I know right! God I'm so sick and tired of those fantasy cliches. Dragon Age and Skyrim are both guilty of having very cliche and boring dragons. At least The Witcher 2 does it right!

I haven't played The Witcher yet, but it's on my list. Are the dragons like Dungeons and Dragons style dragons? The super-intelligent dragons with a wide variety of personalities and types from DnD have always been my favorite.

Well I had my top 5 of games on the first page which sums it up pretty well as the Witcher does not come far after that.

Dragon Age regarding Dragons I am actually still on the fence about. No they haven't been used in any revolutionary way yet, but there are hints that they might have a deeper intelligence than what is shown. The codex on Dragon Cults in DA:O wonder that if Dragons are basically animal intelligence then how do the cults get set up? Also in Awakening two drakes who serve as a boss are using Blood magic (though granted the Architect had his hand on them before that).

But those are just hints, nothing major, though I hope to get a an answer (and hopefully a larger role) in the future.

Skyrim I had so much hope for, but then I remembered it was Bethesda storytelling (they can create a world, but engaging plots is not their strong suit in my opinion). And sure enough the few dragons who actually talked (as in not talking in breathing fire on you) were severely underused and even fell into the old cliche that dragons by their nature are evil if you listen to how Parthunax tells you he has to meditate each day to keep his urges down.

Spyro has pretty much been the only game series deviating from the standard formula of dragons (beyond the Witcher) which i can think of right now. It is pretty sad.

Guess that is part of why I enjoy the Temeraire book series so much. Unique dragons who actually have a central role in the story. Come on Peter Jackson, I know you bought the rights to make Temeraire movies / a high budget mini series, now make it happen! (quite true that last part).

And no I haven't read the Wicther books sadly.

Well cant say too much regarding the dragon in Witcher 2 (only one really shows up) as it is essential to one half of the plot (the plot splits a ways into the game and you must choose which path to walk resulting in widely different stories with unique perspectives on what is going on, one of the best things in the game) But anyway the dragon of Witcher 2 is much like what you would expect from D&D. Highly intelligent and powerful with deep motives.

Good. I tend to use dragons as major villains whenever I run Dungeons and Dragons for those very qualities!

Yeah the Dragons of D&D are awesome.

Also another game which got at least one dragon right would be Dark Souls (also high on my list) with Seath the Scaleless. Sure you encounter plenty of dragons over the cause of the game, but Seath is something special.

Though the way Dark Soul's is build you may not even realize most of the lore surrounding the characters unless you start to dig deep and read the description of items and most prominently their souls.

It is too bad that Seath by the time of the game has gone crazy (with a legitimate reason so) as I would have loved to interact with the character at his peak.

I love Dark Souls. The game is a prime example of how to set a tone and tell a story in a game without relying on cinematic elements. The game isolates you and shows through the mechanics and atmosphere of the game itself that, while other people may occasionally appear and help you in your journey, you are ultimately alone at every step of the way.

Now that I think about it, I actually had a "mad scientist" dragon similar to Seath in the last campaign I was running.

Good. I tend to use dragons as major villains whenever I run Dungeons and Dragons for those very qualities!

I can tell you a bit about the dragons from The Witcher books, so you get an idea of how the dragons are handled in The Witcher universe without spoiling anything in The Witcher 2.


In the books, all witchers, who are trained monster slayers, are taught that dragons are not monsters, but highly intelligent and noble creatures. Therefor, most (if not all) witchers refrain from slaying dragons.

Geralt of Rivia, the main character of the books and the games, a witcher, runs into a merchant one day, telling him about a green dragon roaming the nearby valley, occupying it. The local authority has blocked off access to the valley until the dragon is dealt with.
Geralt asks the merchant if he wants him to kill the dragon, explaining that witchers do not slay dragons. The merchant explains to Geralt that he does not want to see this noble creature die. In fact, he is worried about the dragon and wondering why it is occupying this valley.
A bunch of dragon slayers and mercenaries show up and explain that the dragon is probably protecting a large treasure. They want to slay the dragon and loot the treasure.
Geralt refuses to let this happen. He joins the dragon slayers, but not to kill the dragon, but to protect it and find out what is going on here.
In the end, Geralt fails to protect the green dragon, but he does manage to figure out what the dragon was protecting: an egg.
When Geralt retrieves the egg, he discovers that the merchant who originally contacted him is in fact a dragon himself. You see, in The Witcher universe, dragons are shape-shifters (or at least golden dragons are, not sure about the other dragons). They can take on the form of a regular human being and blend in with the crowd if they wish. The merchant, in reality a golden dragon, did just that in order to contact Geralt. The merchant is probably the father of the egg laid by the green dragon.
The egg hatches, revealing a young golden baby dragon. The merchant thanks Geralt for his help and leaves with the baby dragon.

@all, do you guys stick to origin? Why no steam? You may add me on both, ID's in my sig if you haven't noticed yet :stick:
side note: I'm rarely online on origin (I still don't trust EA Bandit ), but (almost) every day on steam

Well the archdemons take the form of dragons, so you could say that they are intelligent and have certain motives... But then again they are no real dragons... So yeah, the role of dragons in DA is a matter for debate. Lots of speculation from everyone!

Fallout: New Vegas

I love the open world exploration, and the survival on hardcore mode. To me, that is just the perfect game. Not to mention the casinos and gambling are amazing, and the different paths to the ending are also great. My favorite mission is the President Kimball mission where you have to protect him from being assassinated. I just make a save at that point and assassinate him in many different ways!
