You know, almost every time I get into a new game or game series, I share it here. But for some reason, I’ve been keeping this one in the dark.
Since late last year, I decided it was time to check out The Witcher series. After all, I did write earlier that it was one of the series I wanted to play!
I’m currently on the third game, which I was finally able to play when Teletraan I was built. The first game was okay but I couldn’t finish it after no longer being able put up with the controls.
The second game was really good and the third just looks absolutely stunning.
Let me just say this, Geralt of Rivia is so handsome. I had seen pictures of him prior to playing but didn’t think I’d fall for him.
This is a rather unpopular opinion that I have right now, and it might possibly change or revise itself later on, especially if I decide to read the books but: I heard about Yennefer before I got to the third game, but the moment I met her, I didn’t like her attitude at all. I found it very off-putting how she just had no interest in sitting down to talk with Geralt about where they stood in their relationship after reuniting. She was just in a hurry to leave and seemed irritated that he got busy with Triss.
But my biggest gripe was, if she really was his true love, and she possibly regained her memory before him, why didn’t she contact him? I even made Geralt ask just that!
Now, I’m pretty sure those who read the books will come in defending why Geralt and Yen are meant to be, and why Triss is a vile manipulative cunt.
But here’s how I see it, sure Triss was able to get with Geralt because yes he couldn’t remember he already had someone. Of course Triss withheld that because if you were in love with someone, they lost their memory and forgot about a lover they already had, wouldn’t you have done the same thing?
One thing I liked about Triss was that she was always there for Geralt. She’s kind and caring and where was Yen the whole time?
This is just a gripe of mine, but if I was Geralt’s one true love and I too lost my memory, the first thing I’d want to remember is Geralt and search for him immediately. But then again, Team-Yen fans argue that even though Yen may not have the greatest personality, that’s just her way of showing love. They would also say that she didn’t contact him because she was in the hands of the Nilfguardian Empire at the time.
I don’t want to start a fight, but I’ve got a dilemma which is choosing between them in TW3. I am no where near making that decision. Part of me wants to stick with Triss because I’ve always liked her, but another part of me thinks I should give Yen a chance believing the possibility that she might get better overtime and she won’t always be bitchy. I feel like I should also give her a chance because she is quite beautiful and I like her choker, the pendant looks like a pentagram!
I’ve seen many online debates regarding the Triss vs. Yen love triangle and Yen won when I ran a poll on Facebook on who I should chose to romance.
What do you think? Should I stick with Triss, or give Yen a chance and save Triss for another playthrough?
