The games in The Witcher franchise revolutionized our outlook towards the genre. The phenomenon began in 2007 when CD Projekt Red dropped the first game, based on the book series by the same name. What made these games special? How about everything? The stunning gameplay, the freedom of choice, the protagonist’s story and an ending which resonated with several who have been following Geralt of Rivia’s journey for so long.

It has been some time since The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt came out and while we are not sure if we will be following Geralt on any more adventures, we compiled a list of games that you will most likely love, in case you loved Wild Hunt.

5. Fable Anniversary

Fable was first released for Xbox and PC in 2004. While the game failed to deliver on several promised features, it was well-loved and garnered critical appreciation. It went on to become the best-selling game for 2004. On its tenth year anniversary, a high definition remake of the game, Fable Anniversary was released.

4. Kingdom Come: Deliverance

Kingdom Come: Deliverance is another game we are looking at. While the game had a few technical bugs, it received mostly positive reviews. Unlike The Witcher, the game is played from a first person perspective. However, looking deeper, you’ll find many similarities. Both have a solid storyline, developers have paid much attention to the littlest of details and it was accompanied by a dose of realism.

The quests here are non-linear and can be solved in multiple ways. The NPCs have a daily routine. However, the players’ actions can affect these activities, based on the consequences. We say, this one is definitely worth a try.

In fact, on Metacritic, it is still the highest rated video game of all times. We think, this could be a good diversion from our Witcher obsessed hearts and minds.

2. Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

Power struggles, sneaky combat tactics and secret gathering till the origin story of the Brotherhood is unlocked.
