Combat in the game is good if you study it a little, pay attention to it and familiarize yourself with how witchers are supposed to fight. It's not great, but it is good. That aside, I had the most incredible videogame moment in this game two nights ago while exploring an area where I came out after a mission. I started noticing bodies and empty villages and everywhere I went I found more dead people. No quest activated,no messages or Geralt's thoughts, nothing. The further I explored into the area the tragedies on display were horrific. I found a dead woman lying in bed with her young son, her husband had hanged himself just outside their hut. I saw a woman sitting, with a sword through her neck and into the ground, which kept her upright in the sitting position, with her head tilted downwards. Everywhere I went the same horrific sight all around, mass suicides or murders, children and adults alike. Still no messages or quests. Eventually I came upon some living, and as I prepared myself for some sobbing stories, or at least some light upon what I had just seen, they attecked me. The names above them said ´Cannibals´. Eventually, after having downright slaughtered dozens of those ****ers, I came upon a marker that said ´Bandit Camp´. Single most moving gaming experience I've had, and there was not a single quest in sight.
