Despite having a simple story, all the subplots and characters make up for it; The Witcher 3 has a great story, arguably one of the most immersive and well-written stories in a western RPG in my opinion.
The gameplay, unfortunately, is one of The Witcher 3's weakest parts, however, it's decent nonetheless; it feels satisfying and it plays well for the most part, it just lacks depth and the movement feels a bit floaty.
The RPG elements are not necessarily deep, but they're well executed. There is a fair amount of different equipment, perks, upgrades and status effects that can affect the gameplay. On the other hand, the dialogue options and different outcomes are done masterfully, the highlight of the entire game.
The quest design is excellent as well for the most part. Aside from some chores sprinkled through the game, the side-quests in The Witcher 3 are some of the best I've seen in a videogame in general.
Also, the game has a ton of mandatory and optional content, and both of the expansions are absolutely impressive.
Lastly, the music is incredible and the graphics are beautiful.
The pacing of the game, however, is not perfect; the story in particular takes quite long to get going.
+ Fantastic narrative

While not exactly flawless, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a perfect videogame experience and arguably the best western RPG ever made without feeling overwhelming for non-RPG lovers.

A must-play videogame for literally everyone.
