I Don’t Play a Lot of Video Games…But

Earlier this year when I picked up The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and dove into the game, I instantly realized that even after being on the market for years why this game was so popular. With a rich game world and a deep story built on a popular book series, The Witcher 3 and it’s predecessors were ripe for a screen adaptation. And Netflix is leading the charge.

Blending The Witcher Books with the Video Game

Obviously, there are plenty of differences between the books the game was based on and the game itself. That being said, The Witcher is a great example of symbiosis; the books were still being written while the games were being made which led to a uniqueness where later books in the series began borrowing from elements introduced in the game.

The result is a story that cannot exist completely within the realm of the original book series, nor just in the game world.

The Netflix Adaptation

Netflix has been hyping up The Witcher as the next Game of Thrones. That’s a tall order for sure, but if it’s even half as successful as GOT, it’ll be an impressive achievement.

Their most recent trailer looks to have elements from both the book and the game, which is a nice start.

The series will release on December 20, and I’ll be right there to watch it. I’m not much of a binge-watcher when it comes to Netflix, in fact I can’t even tell you when the last time I even opened the app was. This one is on my reminder list though.
