Why would that matter? What was different when it came out in 2015? Any game you would compare it to was already out. DA:I, or Skyrim comes to mind. My expectations didn't change since then.All relative to which the time you first played it.
I'd give him the benefit of the doubt and assume his mission is not to say contrarian things, but his honest opinion. It is your own expectation that he should only say good things about it. You're disappointed that his opinion is not what you expected. That doesn't mean you should try and silence it.Nobody should be putting anybody's dissenting opinions down, but anybody who's even a little familiar with modern PC gaming is aware of Witcher 3's reputation, and it just seems like Flogger23m had mission to say contrarian things. There's nothing wrong with that, but it's definitely going to garner a certain type of response in a thread with over one hundred pages of people generally enjoying the game.
Just because something is generally praised doesn't mean you can't notice flaws in it. In fact when I first started writing game reviews for fun, my mission was to disregard the general opinion. Because I was sick and tired of 'professional' reviewers just parroting each other saying what was expected of them. Like most recently with the ME:A debacle. It was decided by popular opinion based on nothing but hearsay that it was terrible. I didn't see a single favorable opinion piece on it. Well except my own. And I didn't do that to go against the popular opinion. I did it because that is how I saw the game.
