So, beyond the fact that Geralt looks weird, what interests me about this adaption (at least what I’ve seen so far) is that the appeal to The Witcher that I’ve heard is more about the episodic nature of the gameplay. I own all 3 games but haven’t actually played them yet. But what I’ve heard is that individual quests kind of have this fairy tale quality where each quest is it’s own, self encapsulated fable. What I’ve read of The Last Wish is also like this; it’s a collection of short stories. That seems ripe for a TV adaption, and, in fact, it was adapted in 2002 as a miniseries, where each episode was a short story. (Apparently, it wasn’t very good.)
But this trailer seems to be more going for a Game of Thrones-style narrative, a broad sweeping epic.
For those who really liked these games: does that appeal to you? I’m genuinely asking, because I haven’t put in the time with these games/books, and I’m kind of scratching my head here.
