Andrzej Sapkowski II

205 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Sapkowski has been saying that he'll write another book for years. Mind you, I do hope he got a better piece of pie for this than he did with the video games.

But the "tie-in fiction" idea is amazing because you have to be INCREDIBLY unobservant to say that if you've played the games. They beat you over the head with relationships and characters who Geralt knows that you've never met before in the games.

I mean it's doubly-ironic because the games really are "fix-fic" for people who hated the Witcher books ending the way it did. It's basically a trio of games where Frodo awakens after coming back from the Gray Havens or Kirk gets up off the rocky planet and goes to visit all of his old friends. It's just most Americans never read the books they're fanfic for.

I think the show could be a megasuccess, though.

Yes, well, "unobservant" is a nicer word than I would use to describe a lot of gamers these days...

Are you Sapkowski?  ok joking aside, you are right. As someone who used to play games a lot ( not as much now)  and visit gaming websites etc... Well, my curiosity got the better of me and I decided to visit there again to see the comments and... Yeah, now I understand Sapkowski's attitude.
