With The Witcher 3 now out and blowing everyone away, I thought now is a good time to talk about a pet hate of mine: character customisation. I know many of you here absolutely love the ability to make you avatar into whatever you want, whether it’s an elf with scars all over their face or a badass humanoid with a massive tat.
But before you bring out the pitchforks, please hear me out. I would rather have my cake and eat it too. If we can get around the downsides of character customisation and still have it then by all means let’s have it. However, generally speaking it seems that particular goal is too hard for developers to achieve.
So why don’t I like it?

I’ve played The Wild Hunt for close to 120 hours now. Only two RPGs spring to mind that have taken up such a huge block of my time – Skyrim and Dragon Age: Inquisition.
Now I loved Skyrim, and I am an enormous BioWare fangirl but I won’t hesitate to say that — in my opinion, of course — The Wild Hunt is better than both of them. It’s more like a combination of both of them, in fact, with the open-world exploration we all loved about Skyrim and the epic storyline of a BioWare game.
But there’s more to it than that.
