(By the way, The Witcher was chock-full of that sort of thing, and not just Ch IV — the hard-boiled detective story spoof in Ch II, the drugged-out hippie druids, the other Lovecraftian storyline in the swamp, that whole Great White Hope boxing thing, and so on.)
Woo I didn't realized all of this, but it's been clear for me anyway that The Witcher writing is a lot superior to any other RPG ever released… cough cough well those I played.
