I think the romances in The Witcher are probably more "mature" than basically any other game.
Hear me out.
You have two major types: The quick fling and the commited relationship. The former is Geralt banging anyone with two legs and a vagina. The latter though is what is particularly "mature"
Geralt can enter a relationship with either Triss or Shani. While not made explicit at the time, Geralt is remembering his true love, Yennefer, and is confused. Both women understand this. And neither relationship really kicks into gear until there is a child they need to take care of. Thus, they both "settle" for the sake of raising and protecting a child.
In TW2, Geralt and Triss have a much more casual relationship, but it is clear during dialogue and cutscenes that Triss is conflicted. She wants to be with Geralt, but she also understands that Geralt still cares deeply for Yennefer. And the more he uncovers of his past, the more he'll uncover of her.
Whereas every Bioware relationship since the BGs has basically been the "quick fling", just spread out over a more realistic timeframe. You sit and talk to your companion a few times, flirt a bit, and then you boink. TW(1 and 2) just take that and shrink it down to a few hours.
That's not to say that either is particularly deep or "meaningful". But it is nice to have a more "depressingly realistic" example, as it were.

You know, I think it's highly possible that this is a marketing stunt for grabbing attention. People will get pissed about it, write about it and then BioWare will say how they're sorry and that this was a huge mistake. Shortly after, they'll enable anyone to use this feature for free.But where did he come from, this fleck of spite in an abandoned paradise?

I liked the witcher cards. But maybe I am a brute?

I thought they were pretty nasty. I don't really see how the Witcher ones are very deep or meaningful really. Take the Witch for example, you have no interaction with her really nothing to suggest a relationship, then you find her in the cave and oh got time to kill, let's have sex.

All Bioware romance is "talk to me three times and I'm yours."
As such, I'm wondering why you're all torn up about this.
And re: Witcher, you don't necessarily need a relationship to have sex. There's something to be said for being the only guy in the area who's immune to venereal diseases.

I think The Witcher takes place in a very compressed time frame in comparison, maybe a few weeks tops?

Shani I could understand, but the witch just seems so, well Geralt and Abigail alone, so why not have them have sex?
And let's not forget that we can compliment the lady of the lakes ass and then we're having sex. Or that she looks like this:

Also, I forget the specifics (been a while), but they basically arrived at sunset or something, right? So that is another way of saying "We got time to kill"
But yeah, Abigail is definitely in the "fling" category. Although, considering the frequency, it might be worth making a "Manipulative Fling" subcategory. Since there are a lot of ladies who ride the Geralt train to manipulate him or because they are batpoop insane (Adda is both :p)

ME1 was, like, three weeks. Then you were dead for two years. Then you're back for six more weeks. Then you're put on house arrest for a few months. Then you save the galaxy in another three weeks.
It's more the sorta "we shared traumatic moments and you're conveniently close" kind of flings. Hell, Liara T'Soni's the poster girl for puppy love.

The dryad is also not great. I think she turned me down in game, most accurate role playing game ever.

Bioware: The only developer dumb enough to do the one thing that will offend absolutely everyone.

Can someone please explain the obsession with gay marriage in Bioware games? Like seriously...
15-01-2013, 04:54 AM #40
Not really an obsession, but since they started including the option/possibility in Dragon Age 1, then reinforced in 2 and Mass Effect 3, they gained a certain following from the GLBT community and set some standards that members and supporters of that community began to expect from their games.
There aren't many games that feature same-sex relations, which makes BioWare's stand out.
