Just started Witcher 3. Combat is so much more satisfying than in skyrim

Is it impossible to get out of conversations without going through the dialogue once you’ve initiated? I can’t figure it out but I start a lot of conversations that I immediately want to be over

To what extent can I beat the shit out of randos that piss me off without turning everyone hostile because that is something I take issue with in skyrim

Also I’m super confused what am I supposed to be doing? I’m in that town after saving some dude from a griffin. I charged him for it by accident I didn’t mean to. I beat up those 3 guys from the bar and now I’m riding my horse into ppl

Idk anything about any other consoles except NES and SNES and they don’t have skyrim so I shouldn’t be the one to answer your question

Skyrim is definitely overwhelming and can be overstimulating

My advice is accept every quest, join every guild, don’t beat yourself up if you wanna play a straight up good guy because it’s impossible, there are some ppl you’re gonna have to fight or rob or sabotage ppl at the very least and it turns out if you spare them they’ll just get their added kicked or robbed or sabotaged by someone else so it may as well be you

Use the quest diary thing to toggle quests from active to inactive in order to stay focused. A lot of the guests will seem really urgent or time sensitive which can be extremely frustrating and overwhelming but most of them will still be there if you go off and do something else for a while

Also sometimes just wander around without any active quests

Those are my skyrim adhd tips. I have other tips if you decide to play skyrim

It might not end well.

I can see the signs of someone who may no get into witcher being that im one of those people. All the talking, forced to play a predetermined character....

I fle the temptation to buy Witcher 3 with every price drop but I still have had 2 installed for 2 years and I’ve played maybe 3 hours in that time

I played a few hours of Witcher 2 years ago, and yeah it killed my interest in Witcher 3 when it first came out but when the hype itt finally got me to buy it it's a much better playing game.

Finished Xenoblade Chronicles 2 last night. If you enjoy JRPGs (very JRPG) I cannot recommend this game enough. The ending actually had my wife crying like a baby. It’s the most satisfied I’ve been with a game ending since Witcher 3, as in I need to let it marinate for a while before I play it again.

Really hoping for a Switch port of XCX, I would probably sell my Wii U at that point.
