The post is a bit long, TL;DR in the end.
Hi guys! I've recently started playing Witcher 3 and I'm really enjoying this game. I've been a long time fan of the series so I've read all the books and finished two previous games. Though I like that Witcher 3 has a massive open world with crazy amount of interesting side activities, I find that urgency of the main quest makes it hard for me to justify doing all the side stuff I encounter. It just feels so immersion breaking, which bothers me greatly.
I shared that problem with my friend who's had two completionist playtroughs (says that he's cleared every single "?" Including those on Skellige) and he said that I'd lose a lot by skiping side quests. He advised me to take every single quests I encounter. He also said that I'm playing this game wrong, after he saw how quickly I left White Orchard, lol. And I kinda listened to him. So far I have 20 hours in the game and I've completed Red Baron's quest. I also checked all "?" which happened to be on my way to the main quest destination and completed 4-5 witcher contracts and a couple of side quests.
Witcher contracts are very well done and a huge improvement over previous games and I like them a lot. But I don't find them important enough to put aside the main quest. I decided to only do those which take place near the main quest's objectives.
Question marks are generally boring for me and I stopped bothering with them after a while. Game starts to feel like an MMO for me when I focus on those.
But side quest are a different matter. Although some side quests like Wild at Hearth I just didin't find THAT good to stray away from the main story, I wouldn't want to miss such brilliant qests like "Keira's invitation" and "A Towerful of mice". That quest which takes place in an empty farmstead with numerous traps around it was my favourite moment in the game so far. (I enjoyed it even more than the first meeting with Yennefer, lol). But the problem is that I stumbled upon it purely by accident, and at one point I wanted to skip it. (Didn't check the notice board in that settlement).
And now I'm afraid to lose quests like this one, but at the same time I can't allow myself to complete every single quest in the game.
Can anyone please give me the list with the names of the most important and interesting side quests which must be completed to fully enjoy this great game? I'd also like to complete every side quest that affects the ending somehow.
TL;DR. Started playing Witcher 3; urgency of the main quests breaks the immersion for me; can't justify doing all the side quests, but I'm afraid to lose the most important ones; need a list of quests which are mandatory for enjoying the story.
