Yep, it's time I let you know about another very good game about vampires and monsters. Introducing "The Witcher".
You are Geralt of Rivia, a monster slayer known as a "witcher", who cured the daughter of King Foltest of a curse which caused her to transform into a monster. A period of years mysteriously passes, ending with you being transported to the witcher stronghold of Kaer Morhen by fellow witchers who had discovered you unconscious in a field. You remember almost nothing of your life before returning to Kaer Morhen.
Through the game, you meet many former friends and foes who help you recover information about your mysterious past. Through the storyline, you discover that you had died five years earlier while attempting to defend an oppressed group of non-humans from a racist mob. You also learn that you are actually the renowned witcher referred to in prose as "The White Wolf."
Through your choices and actions, Geralt redefines character relationships and navigates political intrigue in the changing landscape of Temeria. This allows you to make decisions that affect the plot progression, and of course the game's ending. There is a lot of decisions of moral natures that will have consequences later in the game so there is no black-and-white morality in this game which makes it very different from other games.
Now you know the basic plot, time to enjoy the game opening and some gameplay video. Before I forget, this game is rated M for extreme violence and sexual content.
