Favorite games
Witcher III: breathtaking story, satirical treatment of social problems, endless fantastic quests and sense of freedom in the world
Assassin's Creed series: variety of stories, historical architecture
Hogwarts Legacy: complete, individual immersion in the world of Harry Potter, criticized for Joanne K. Rowling's trans-hostile attitude and inadequate classification of racism inherent in the game.
