Witcher 2 is one of my favorite games of that generation. I like it far more than 3.

Why do baka gaijins always screw up when making an action RPG? Whenever they try to make something more involved than a Diablo clone, shit starts getting janky af.

Oh I'm of talking about journos, because who cares about what they think.
The combat system is just odd but not really good.

Witcher 2 on normal difficulty is harder than Witcher 3 on Blood and Broken Bones.
I don't know about that, but it is a more difficult game. Both are great, and I still prefer W2 more. And since I'm unreasonable, I played with Full Combat Rebalance mod on the highest difficult (I don't remember if it's also called Death March in W2), which broke all sort of things. Fun times. Felt like proper Dark Souls. If any of you want to give W2 another try, get the Full Combat Rebalance mod. It adds new animations, changes combat around by giving you a bit more options and it was made by one of the devs from CDproject.

Wichser's combat system has been criticised since day one. The mildest criticism was that it was "ambitious".
I think game journos just couldn't handle something slightly different that wasn't pushed by massive marketing behind it. The combat in W1 is fine, it just isn't that involved. I actually liked the sort of rhytm-based fighting, as primitive as it was.

Witcher 2 on normal was way harder than W3 on DM. Which reminds me, I really should reinstall that one and finish it this time. I remember liking it very much, but it was just way too damn hard. Witcher 1 was also great in its time, but the combat system is way too dated by today's standards.

Holy Mother of Kek. That made me laugh more than it probably should've.

Witcher 2 is harder than 3, but it's better for it. It being harder is a good thing, because the game forces you to prepare before battles, use bombs and ready traps. Quen is required rather than a suggestion like in W3. Because the game is divided into hubs, encounters can be tailored for your expected level and provide a stiff challenge.

I was very surprised when I popped in witcher 3 and realized prepping (the bull?) wasn't a thing anymore. I mean, you can theoretically do it, but there's no raisin to. Items like throwing knives and bombs are also pointless. I would buy those in bulk in witcher 2 (or ingredients to make them,) but why bother in witcher 3? Everything dies to sword slashes. Tap dpad if you're dying to enable 10 minute hp regen at the cost of ONE food item.

You say that sarcastically, as you say everything, but it was probably the reason for the piss-easy difficulty. I played on Blood and Broken Bones IIRC, which should be the second-highest difficulty. It was easy as fuck. For the cost of a single skill point, hp regen from food lasts something like 10 minutes instead of 10 seconds. It's hilarious. There are other ways to break the game too.
