Making my friend player Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings while I watch is a pretty good idea:
The plot is surprisingly complicated. You play Geralt, who is a professional monster hunter, who gets falsely accused of murdering the king you were working for. The King was killed by this guy I dubbed Kinger and he’s like a bigger, meaner, Geralt. Geralt gets sent to prison but escapes with the help of the King’s old spymaster, Roche. Together Geralt and Roche go downriver and the point we’re at in the game, the kingdom of Temeria is teetering on the point of civil war, with the nobles bickering. There’s also a situation where the Dwarves and Elves, who live as second class citizens in Temeria, are also agitating, and violence is about to break out everywhere.
It’s kind of like Skyrim crossed with Metal Gear Solid. It has the setting of Skyrim, but the weird depth and detail of Metal Gear Solid, along with the weird minigames.
If the game didn’t have so many invisible walls, and didn’t crash every ten minutes, I’d say it was one of the better RPGs I’ve made my friend play for my entertainment.
