You start the game fighting alongside some king as he goes to reclaim his ******* children from some rebels. You donít know any of the characters. You donít know the kingdoms and the different powers. And you donít know why Geralt should care about any of the people around him. When this king gets assassinated youíre supposed to instinctually know just how big of a deal it really is. The game
you that redheaded Triss Merigold is important to Geralt, but I never felt any big connection between them because it never showed me their bond.
