Let’s assume a few things here.
You love RPGs on the PC. You think this whole “Witcher 2 thing” sounds cool. But here is your conundrum:
* Your PC is going to laugh hysterically the second you try to install Witcher 2.
* You didn’t play the original and feel like you’re gong to be jumping into a world that should be already familiar.
* Your girlfriend at the time thought the idea of collecting cards with half naked women you scored with in a videogame is really juvenile and hinted that you shouldn’t even think about playing that game, then you realized she was a real harpy and you moved on with your life and then forgot all about The Witcher.
Well does GoG (https://www.gog.com) have a deal for you: You can get The Witcher Enhanced Edition Director’s Cut right now for five bucks. Being a big fan of this game, that’s a no brainer and should help you ease into Witcher 2, assuming you have the PC horsepower. It’s not perfect, but should provide you with many, many, many hours of monster hunting pleasure.
