In May 2011, Barack Obama made a trip to Poland. Following tradition, Polish Prime Minister, Donald Tusk, had some gifts prepared for the president. Among them was a copy of The Witcher 2, the pride of Poland. This esteemed rank, though slightly made up, is well earned by the game. Developed by CD Projekt RED, it is the second installment in the Witcher series based on the novels of Andrzej Sapkowski. You play as Geralt of Rivia, a witcher who is serving as a temporary bodyguard and good luck charm to King Foltest. As soon as the game starts, it throws you smack dab in the middle of a plot of regicide, politics, sorcery and revenge.
ALERT: Spoilers for the first game are below.
