I know several female crpg players, thanks to some young cousins. None of them play the Witcher because they can't identify with the ugly main character and they can't play as Triss. Until CDProject realizes that there is a large and growing larger set of female players, they'll miss out on the Skyrim and Bioware types of numbers. Since women are treated as sex objects in the Witcher series, it is a massive fail on that front.

Also the Witcher is linear as can be with only two diverging paths. It's not even really a choice and consequences game because there are so few choices. I enjoyed one for what it was but game two had Geriatric Geralt so old that I couldn't relate to him either.
