I honestly think this was the best rpg of the year. It was just overlooked because of Skyrim. I love Skyrim but this tops it in so many ways. They did a fantastic job on this game. I love the npc interaction and seeing them go about their daily lives. Like at night I say a guy peeing on a bush. And how there will be certain groups that gather at various times. Everything about this game is just fantastic and impressive. I hope the 360 release will bring it more attention.

It's had plenty of attention, there's just not much of an active community since there aren't any mod tools like in Bethesda games.

I agree completely, TC. I guess it's a combination of a low marketing budget with the fact that not that many people are familiar with CD Project Red. I hope the xbox version explodes and puts this game on the map because in my non-humble opinion this is the best game I've played in quite a few years actually.
Ok, ok, I'm biased because I've liked Geralt and the books for years but the game is just superb in every way!

Skyrim and Mass Effect are good games to be sure..... but I really think this game takes a steaming dump all over those franchises! This game blew me away and it's really crazy to see it so low key (compared to those other titles at least). I hear people raving all over gaming forums about the lose of the RPG genre... well it's right here in all it's glory folkes... stop buying the biggest advertised titles! --- "If we can hit that bulls-eye, the rest of the dominoes will fall like a house of cards.

I would say it's pretty much because of advertising...Skyrim was advertised way too much, in every way possible. This was advertised by developer diaries and a few videos which means that unless you follow games and look for new ones there is a chance you won't hear about it. I certainly didn't hear about The Witcher 1 until almost a year after it was released.

Well the protagonist is kinda terrible (personally Geralt annoys me), the combat system is dull, and the loot/inventory system is tedious.
Other than those Witcher 2 is pretty decent RPG and it has boobs.

How is combat dull? its one of the best ones I've ever seen in an rpg

Cause, unlike Skyrim, you can't t-bag your enemies for the lulz

I think the obvious answer is that it was a PC exclusive. How can it hope to get as much attention as a multiplatform game? --- Take my blood for example, I wish someobody would - this stuff is killing me!

you know a AAA game have 100 mil for game development + another 100 mil for promotion. witcher 2 had almost non existent promo budget. I remember seeing a full page ad for 2 days and nothing else any where :P they needed a better publisher. --- insert: something clever!!!
