    Goddamn, this really was a massive disappointment. Probably needed an extra 2 years in the oven to become what CDPR was trying to sell us. That misleading marketing though. Anyways, at least Keanu Reeves and the soundtrack were amazing. But damn CDPR faded itself real fast.

      Johnny'd motivation for taking down Arasaka stems from his involvement in the Mexican conflict 50 years prior to the game. There's a conversation you have with him in a motel after clearing out the Voodoo boys place after talking to Alt Cunninham. Idk what quest to have to do to triggger this convo because ive done it on a differnt save file and we just sat outside the voodoo boys HQ and sat at a table and had a different conversation .

    I'm surprised more people don't know that tons of developers left CDPR after The Witcher 3, and most of them said the reason they left was because of incompetent management (poor communication, unreasonable crunch periods, all that fun stuff). That's not even getting into how Witcher 3 had its own miniature controversy over downgraded graphics and how buggy the game was at release. Think most people who idolized CDPR after Witcher 3 don't realize that it was only a great game through dogged determination from a poorly supported, overworked and under appreciated dev team that moved onto greener pastures after that game's release.

      @kziek Dude, the game is fucked at a core level. It is insanely mediocre, and honestly bad at some points.
      Sorry, but just because it has a good spin off anime, doesn't mean it's a 10/10. It's a 6/10, on a good day.
      You call us bootlickers, and for what? Because we called out an obvious fanboy?
      He can enjoy the game, fine. I have over 200 hours myself, but that's because I've done multiple playthroughs on the different updates to see if it got better.
      I'm telling, this game is just okay. The performance is much better, but the game still feels empty, and souless to me.
      It's like Far Cry but set in a city. It's fine enough to have fun for a short time, but that's it.
      If you, or anybody else thinks this a "perfect" game, then fuck me, you have extremely low standards.

      @Phantom Luffy I mean...the game being half finished is only part of the issue, the story is nowhere as riveting as witcher, the AI is dumb as fuck, open world design is same-old same-old, and optimization is horrendous (something can't always be solve with more development time). Personally, I'd give the main story 6/10 and sidequests 8/10 if I was to look past the technical issues.

      @dj Kplus look, it’s clear that we both have very different standards for RPGs and open world games. You highly value story content and build variety, while I value content variety, generally dislike cumbersome exposition, and I care more about build viability and flexibility.
      I generally dislike RPGs that tell the majority of their story through text, rather than dialogue and the environment. The reason I think a character talking about something is better than having to read about it is because that feels way more natural. Regardless of the context of shards, they’re disconnected from the game by the pause menu, and feel a lot less immersive than chatting with a character or seeing something happen because you have to pause the game, navigate through a menu, find the shard you’re looking for, and read it. It feels very unnatural and disconnected from the world, regardless of the actual setup of them.
      The primary reason I hate this kind of storytelling in Cyberpunk 2077 is because the game has solid traditional and environmental storytelling that, in my opinion, clashes with the kind used with the shards. In a game like Dark Souls, the story is vague and obscure, with you having to dig deep to figure out what’s going on, by reading item descriptions, listening closely to the words of characters, and so on. In Kirby games, the story is very basic and simple, but stuff like the pause screens descriptions of boss fights and such add lore for the people that want it, like me. I think a game that performs a good balance is Sekiro. The game has a solid, clear story, but it’s enhanced by stuff like item descriptions and hidden dialogue. The item descriptions aren’t the story, they enhance the existing story.
      This is why I dislike the shards. They’re okay, but they don’t nearly do what you seem to feel like they do. The mission structure is still unbelievably repetitive and bland. The shards can’t excuse that. Regardless of whatever the shards say went down, you did the same thing every time, and the only difference was what the shard said and/or what enemies were present (aka. what they looked like). I do not care what the shards say. The gigs and crimes are utter shit as side content. The shards may be cool, but I don’t have any reason to care when the missions they act as supplements to are so bad.
      My example with the powder gangers was way closer to the shards than what you interpreted. I said to imagine if you found or were given a written threat by the powder Gangers detailing their demands and the consequences the town would face if they didn’t comply, and say something along the lines of “we’re armed and fresh out of the big house, and some of us are itching for some blood to shed. So don’t even think about messing with us.” It does everything that asking around about them does, but asking around conveys the powder gangers are known as a threat, and you can gauge what the townsfolk think of the situation and the powder gangers. The written threat would have worked, but what we got was better.
      But you clearly prioritize the mere inclusion of story above absolutely everything else, regardless of how it’s delivered. That’s fine, I have different tastes, and as a writer and creative myself, I have particular standards when it comes to judging writing and game design. Agree to disagree, and please be less condescending.

      @TheGrapeThief ive been on reddit too much so maybe perceived a tone w u that didnt exist?
      so ok, cereal response
      i see a sandbox design with the ability to approach it however i want, and that alone makes me want to experiment, i dont understand the mentality of people who roll builds just bc they're powerful. (not saying u neccessarily) although im on Hard not very hard, so ofc thats probably a quite different experience.
      ive encountered a lot of gigs with optional objectives of remaining undetected and being stealthy, or not racking up a body count. so there is some incentive depending on the mission. also, not blasting thru it and exploring, you might find some hidden things.
      I never used shards as an excuse for anything. The scanner missions are literally for farming, my point is that they become more interesting when you add those little tidbits in. and i feel like you never read them. its not 'the game explaining everything' its just like, you might find a couple emails on a computer , or recover a fragment of a chat log, it feels natural. you dont need to open a pause menu, u can read it immediately instead of picking it up first, skim it and move on.
      and having a character talk about it isnt also an example of what you're saying is bad storytelling, or game design?
      what are you talking about 'the vast majority'? nearly ever fixer gig or side job is a story arc whether big or small.
      this thing with the powder gangers example, I dont understand because what you describe isnt at all how the shards convey information. once again, its usually a bit of a chat log between npcs, or emails on a computer, not a written manifest documenting what just transpired. it feels completely believable within the world and you can start to piece together some interrelation between certain events as well.
      and anyway, i dont see why a game has to proclaim that it obscures its lore as part of its MO, to be taken seriously as a game that has bits of lore that are obscure. how is that not a good RPG? I hold Morrowind as one of the best, and in many ways i am reminded of that game. Also Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines. which is another of my favorites.
      for example, i was jumping along rooftops when i came across a locked building, full of security cameras. i was on the roof and it had an atrium or whatever u call those rooftop sun windows, so i could see down into the building. there were a bunch of cameras, and then in the middle of the room, a person sitting in a chair with his brains blown out. it appeared he had offed himself. i hacked into the cameras to look around, didnt see anyone else there. i couldnt figure out how to get into the building, so i left it alone eventually. but i still think about it, and wonder about him from time to time. moments like that are why im loving this game right now.

      @dj Kplus holy shit I’m not even going to try and reason with you anymore. I thought I was actually talking to a real person who actually could respect another human being, but your response is barely coherent.
      I guess it’s my fault for playing on Very Hard, because once I got past the early game, I got punished for experimenting with anything besides my best weapons and skills, which I had mostly invested into hacking, Cold Blood, katana skills, and speed, with my cyberware mostly focused around agility and slowing down time. I actually did manage to stealth my way through a few scenarios, making do with hacking instead of takedowns and such. But the game never gave me any real incentive to do so. I could just run through with the katana and there was no noticeable difference.
      My issue isn’t with the shards themselves. It’s how you’re using them as an excuse for bland and repetitive quest design. I never said stuff like that didn’t happen at all. In the real side missions, it did happen and I appreciated it when it did. But the vast majority of missions don’t have this. What they have is shards that explain everything when the game could have shown me, or at the very least had a character talk about it instead of having to pull up the pause menu and read it all. I like reading, but games have alternative methods of storytelling that should have been used instead of the shards.
      Imagine if in New Vegas, nobody talked about the origin of the Powder Gangers or why they were threatening Goodsprings, and you were instead handed or found a written threat from the Powder Gangers explaining their origin and how they were looking for Ringo and wanted the territory. Sure, it would work, but what we got in game is so, so much better.
      Look, I would be more comfortable with that sort of storytelling if it was in something like Kirby, Dark Souls, or Elden Ring, where the lore is intentionally obscure, and not used as an excuse for bland and boring mission design by basically just existing purely so that guys like you can say the missions aren’t repetitive even though the structure of each is almost copy+paste.
      I’m not even going to bother trying to deal with any of your pathetic straw-man arguments. You’re putting words into my mouth and preaching your own superiority constantly. It’s clear you’re not interested in any sort of productive or intelligent debate. You’re only interacting with me to heap praise upon yourself and insult me. It’s honestly quite pathetic. You’re only interested in worshipping this game and touting it as this masterpiece of game design, and berate anyone who dislikes it or has an issue with the game design, and claim them as unintelligent or claim they have poor taste. People like you aren’t worth my time or sanity, so I’m not wasting any more of either on you.

    • TheGrapeThief
      TheGrapeThief 6 일 전 +1

      @dj Kplus it actually is, at least partially. The game never encourages you or pushes you to handle encounters differently, and being able to actually pick between which ones you want to use becomes harder with how carefully you need to spend your skill points in order to actually be good at anything. If I can just solve all of my problems by running in and slicing everybody up with a katana, and face no real consequences for it, what reason do I have to do anything else when the gameplay style that I’ve made my character really good at can just do everything I need? With how much the game bottlenecks you with how scarce skills points are, and with how you earn more by earning experience for something you’ve already invested a lot of points into, how can you really have flexibility without severely sacrificing the effectiveness of any of them?
      It doesn’t matter what the shards say, they’re still generic. A few paragraphs you can read are not an alternative for more varied and interesting quest design. Those guards should have pulled up on the employees and opened fire on them in front of you. The use of shards as a replacement for showing it in game goes completely against “show, don’t tell.” The shards border on “Drebin explaining the backstories of the B&B unit after the fight with them in MGS4” levels of lazy, poor design.
      The enemy variety in this game is a complete joke, I’m glad we can at least agree on that.
      You managed to completely miss the point of what I said. Shrines and Korok seeds revolve around puzzles and mini games. They are also the majority of the “content” in Breath of the Wild. How is operating a big cannon or putting a rock down in a circle of other rocks any less “stupid” than the mini games of SA or NV?
      Again, show, don’t tell. The shards are lame excuses for terrible mission variety. At least in Skyrim you actually interact with the world and see the stuff people talk about. This even goes back to Oblivion with stuff like the Dark Brotherhood. Elder Scrolls quest design and world-building is superior to Cyberpunk’s because they aren’t reliant on a completely optional essay that tells you something the game should have shown you. By your logic, cumbersome and unnecessary exposition isn’t a flaw, and a game that tells you a ton of information is better than a game that shows you the important information.
      I honestly could not give less of shit about the updates. The game is a clunky mess and has a bad and boring foundation. Unless they pull a Battlefront 2 and totally overhaul the game, it won’t be fixed or even worth buying. The stuff you’re talking about should have been in the game on day one. What you just described is the bare minimum a person ought to expect out of a AAA open world game. The AI isn’t good now, it’s just functional enough, like GTA V’s AI. The combat isn’t a sandbox when you have to walk in with only one or two things to play with.

    It also didn't feel alive. I wanted more side quests that were more than just small gigs. I can grind through bugs if it means deep side quests. Only major side quests that stand out are the companion ones along with the crucifixion one.

      @Robin Bodare it’s also hilarious that Cyberpunk fanboys defend the fact that it doesn’t have any cool mini games or jobs like a game such as San Andreas or New Vegas has by calling those mini games stupid or unrealistic/not immersive. And yet most of the game’s actual content is so formulaic and artificial. Name a side quest in Cyberpunk that reaches the standard of an Elder Scrolls, Zelda, or Fallout (Fallout 4 notwithstanding) side quest. There’s really only a few.

      I wished they delayed Jackie's death until mid-late game. Should've been working alongside Jackie, building up the legend of Samurai and working against Arasaka while building up your own arsenal, followed by Jackie's death, you facing either just fighting or accepting death and going out in a blaze. Could've been a "hit me right in the feels" kinda game.
      Instead, Jackie just dies an hour in and I didn't feel anything.

    I had a fairly decent experience as I had few glitches/bugs. But most points still hold true. Personally, what I hoped was that we would get was a open world Deus Ex game. Where your actions determined the story, not dialog choices. A simple example of what I expected so to be able to do all missions in different ways, e.g. hacking all the way, stealth, melee, gun fighting, etc. And the more you did missions in a certain way, the bigger "your legend" would become and that would dictate your story as V.
    And of course within those ways to achieving your goals, there would be the "good/bad" scale too. So your legend would be evil hacker or good gunner (ok i know maybe something more interesting than those names). But anyway, It would've been really cool that after 3/4 of the story, your gameplay had decided your legend and after that, people that know you, would address you with a cool title belonging to your playstyle so far. And if you then start deviating, people would go "wtf I thought you were evil hacker, why are you good stealth killing? This is not why I hired you". And changing your gameplay would result in negative consequences and bad endings.
    Anyway, for sure, its downfall was its own hype. No doubt about that. I still think CP77 is an OK game, just average if you dont count the bugs. So for me personally, while enjoyable, it was still disappointing in the end. Oh and I did end up nearly 100% my minimap apart from collecting cars. Not worth it...

      @Graham Luke tf you mean so you can see it and laugh at how goofy your character is. You don't have to wear a helmet in DS therefore you have the ability to look at your character whenever you want. And you're completely wrong anyway, most games that have customization options for your character you're able to look at your character at almost any point. Skyrim, fallout, red dead, and even destiny are just a few examples. They are saying the customization shouldve been able to properly appreciate without having to go 3rd person in a car or looking in the god awful mirrors. You're argument fell apart like Jenga bro

    Games can be amazing even with little enemy variety, if the A.I is good enough. Take F.E.A.R for example, you spend most of the game fighting replica soldiers (and later on security guards), with the occasional heavy armor or power armor, but the A.I and scenarios, even the weapons you have, make each encounter feel bombastic and fun, even the enemy voicelines make the encounters special.
    But Cyberpunk had none of that.

    This game always infuriates me when I hear about it, even though I wasn't even that hyped about it. Complete scam, with a level of sophistication that is bordering what one can learn from 10 dollar Udemy game dev courses. I'll never forget when I realized that vehicles have a single float "health bar" and I can literally punch them, anywhere, until they explode. Hello Games at least had enough decency in them to keep working on No Man's Sky, but no, CDPR can't do it of course. Will most probably never buy anything from them ever again, including their GOG store.

    Watching this in Jan 2022 and, heck, it still describes the game perfectly correct. As an author had said - one more year wouldn't fix this game, and that's right - there are fewer (or less) bugs, although the engine still does it's best to break the immersion by weird physics and stupid AI. Shooting, sneaking, driving, exploring - all gameplay mechanics are worse then they were in games released 10+ years ago - but that's something that can be fixed by patching, modding or just making player's own imagination to do the job. What's most wrong is that everything just doesn't connect into a good story and I couldn't care less about V nor other characters.

    I'd wondered for a long time why they had enough cutscenes to stich into a coherent montage about V settling into the life of a merc if they never intended for the missions and events associated with them to be playable. Eventually I realized that they had originally wanted players to play through those parts but had to cut them, not because of time issues but because they couldn't get Jackie's AI to work at a level that would make him useful in unscripted missions no matter what the player's build/playstyle was. They could get the bare minimum, which is what you see during the Arasaka heist, but nothing more than that. They probably considered some kind of companion system that would have you command Jackie, but it would have been a system only usable for the first act; unless they added a way to recruit another companion to replace Jackie. I think they realized that that wasn't workable, so they tossed the original first act and moved 95% of side-quests into the second act.

    The game at every turn was a missed opportunity. I realized it early in the story when you are talking with that scientist about the chip. Basically the concept of Johnny's personality is already subtly taking over is introduced. "You will start doing things that were once unthinkable, at least to your old self."
    It was a cool concept and lined up with the player. As soon as you "take over" you start toppling gangs, killing tons of people and tackling Arasaka, except the game never goes back to that concept of V becoming someone else. They'd be hard pressed to anyways, the only character that really knew you before is killed off at the start of the game. It would have been weird for anyone else you meet to engage that idea since the story has the pacing of the Crank movies. It feels like it takes place over a couple days so none of the relationships you form mean anything outside of the romance options and surprisingly Misty, who wraps up her deal also at the start of the game.
    They should have kept Johhny in the dark, put the player in the role of the chip taking over. Your decisions and personal goals are the detraction from the original V. As you move through the story and move up in the underworld, actually using the street cred mechanic in the game for story progression, then you find out about Johhny and "decide" if you like the new you and go after arasaka or try to get him out of your head. At least we would have had a portion of the game where it felt like our story instead of pushing Johhny into the quasi main character and us along for the ride.

They should have delayed the new gen console versions to a later date and ditched the last gen consoles alltogether imho to concentrate their efforts on the PC version, then port it to ps5 and xb (which are pretty much PCs in Hardware design) but the shareholders needed the money i guess.

    I never really had issues in the technical side. I had a single glitch where I stole a car and i launched into the skybox. Still it shouldn't have launched in the state it was.
    The Height of the game was the first act before you leave Heywood. It had a quest with branching paths and introduces a bunch of mechanics and things that never get utilized again.
    I'm also really sad about all obviously cut content and promised features that never came to fruition. The city is shallow with not much to do outside of missions. I wanted to like shoot some pool, throw some darts, mug civilians and get some drinks with Jackie at the Afterlife or El Coyote Cojo after running gigs with him.

    I’m glad someone talked about the story. Everyone talked about the glitches and stuff but I couldn’t help but feel like the story doesn’t work on a fundamental level. What I hate the most are the endings. Whether you took the pills that held off the disease or killed you faster, you’re always given 6 months to live. The “best” ending is to end your existence and let Johnny take your body but FUCK THAT. Why should I kill myself and give my body to some old guy who’s past his time? And the “worst” ending, where you side with the corpos, is the only ending where you’re given a chance to live. They copy your conscious so they can put it into a body in a time where they can deal your disease. Why are the neutral and good endings you dying but the bad ending is you wanting to live? It’s so stupid.

    • Kyle Maclellan
      Kyle Maclellan 4 개월 전 +2

      Ehh I disagree I believe the endings were one area they didn’t fuck up. Throughout the whole game V acknowledges how many people have died and will die to save his life. The suicide ending is V going on their own terms with no more people getting caught in the crossfire. The rest of the endings in which who controls V’s body are brilliant in terms of either Johnny or V accepting death. Johnnys redemption from being an angry selfish asshole to doing the most selfless thing and giving up his chance to live for V and vice versa. If you ask me the corpo ending is the worst V suffers the same fate as Johnny being placed on an engram on the the whim that saka will keep their word.

    cyberpunk stood no chance of living up to the marketing, even if it was infinitely delayed. The company completely detached these two elements to the point that I wonder if the marketing department even had any sort of communication with the development team. This game was sold as groundbreaking, never-before-imagined experience and turned out to be a broken and derivative pile of burning trash. Misrepresenting what the game was and could do was far more damning than broken mechanics and bugs. The aesthetic of this game and the hyper-sexualization was enough to be cringe-worthy without all these mistakes

  • Unimpressed Owl

    Not that I'd argue it's the best example, but even discussing broad spectrum "open world design," The Division 2 came out a year before this game and its world not only felt just as meticulously over-designed and brimming with small detail that you could seek out, but it was also diverse. One minute you'd be combing through static quiet sewers in search of keys when suddenly a band of roaming mute thugs with chainsaws and headlights would roll up on you. One minute you may be entering a seemingly innocuous building in order to pillage it for supplies only to find an environmental puzzle involving switches and slightly obscured windows/doors. At the end of the day, Massive knew what The Division 2 was/is; A shooter. But they found a way to make the world in which you are doing the shooting in fun and engaging on numerous levels, and that's not even taking into account how each enemy faction fought completely differently. What this genuinely sounds like is CPR focused on one aspect of what makes an open world an open world. "The open part," but not the "world" part. Strange coming from The Witcher 3 developers, as you stated yourself.

    Cyberpunk 2077 could have been something great or at least memorable enough to be sequel worthy.
    The biggest mistake was trying to make a game like this open world like GTA. Given the nature of the game, the sheer lack of interactivity and extremely rough driving is downright criminal.
    The gane should have been a branching linear experience based on choice and action like Mankind Divided or Dishonored. Night City could have been a collection of highly detailed districts that were built around the cyberware options. The Afterlife could have served as your hub area, where you could buy supplies, modify weapons, get new cyberware, and pick up side missions. The player would select where they were going and step out of a taxi, subway, or their car upon arrival.
    This would address the static open world and the tedious subpar driving mechanics. This would also allow greater detail like lively crowds, building interiors, and far more options for your cyberware.
    V could also stand to be less designed. V is ultimately a pre-existing character like Geralt and Ciri. The life paths had all the depth of a puddle and they wind up acting and speaking like a Street Kid even if they're a rural Nomad or a born and bred Corpo. V deserved a better and more detailed storyline that treated them as a pure character rather than a bargain bin Commander Shepard. You could have spent the prologue seeing Night City through V's eyes as they grew up, meet Jackie, get into trouble, and make the choice to become a merc... instead of one quick mission that makes no real difference.
    Lastly, the gameplay was far too overdesigned and horribly balanced over 18 months later. All the character buffs and resistances could have revolved around cyberware and perks. The clothing could have been purely cosmetic and weapon damage could have been static without level scaling. A player shouldn't lose 5-10 minutes out of every hour to menu management in an FPS RPG.
    Ultimately, Cyberpunk suffered because it was overdesigned and likely had too many creators that were too attached to their various ideas.

    The only thing that made me feel like I was in the world of Cyberpunk was the music. the fact "Night CIty" can play and It reminds me of only the scenery and the atmosphere and not me doing things in the world compared to hearing just the fight music of the witcher harms the longevitiy of this game in our zeitgeist . Its sad that CDPR couldnt deliver on this project. I mean even now we're still waiting on a roadmap to a roadmap of some kind of content. Its unfortunate the timing and release of CP during covid but it really was on CDPR themselves wholly, devs, ceo's, even we the consumer were telling to take as much time as possible. The build that we got before Keanu joined looked so much more promising than what was given. I love Keanu but Johnny just wasn't it. They rested on their laurels and they continue to pay the price of neg public perception because the next project they do will be hit with mass criticism that's deserved. You can't release something like this and just expect us to forget or even forgive for that matter. I actually regret buying CP and I hardly ever regret buying a game.

      The leadership on Cyberpunk was just delusional and incompetent. I dont think this studio will produce or fix any mistakes. I havent heared from Cyberpunk for a while now and i am still waiting for the game to finish before i buy.

      @Dennzyl Vania I have to disagree with you. Cyberpunk follows the Ubisoft Formula for the open world. Go-Fetch quests are littered everywhere with nearly no personality, except for the occasional side quest with some unique flavor.
      The story part is subjective, but I personally found myself detached and unmotivated. Arasaka is some lame corporation that right don't even bother to say what they do. It's just outcompeted by similar titles like Fallout: New Vegas, Far Cry 3, and GTA 5.
      Also, Cyberpunk is the golden standard?! Something like Elden Ring is sooooo good, and makes you truly explore a world. No part of Elden Ring feels unfinished, but in Cyberpunk, half of Pacifica is inaccessible. Elden ring let's you play with a million different playstyles with a million different enemies, while Cyberpunk has some choices in loadouts, but it essentially boils down to: Smart Gun, Regular Gun, Melee, or some variety of the the three.
      I don't know man. Cyberpunk just feels like more of the same, while Elden Ring is a complete modification of the Ubisoft Open World Formula that plagues modern open world games. especially Cyberpunk. But I'm glad you had a fun time and enjoyed the game where I didn't. If you want a new game, seriously consider Elden Ring.

      I play it before and after the recent patch over the last few days. The game has fundamental flaws that aren't addressed at all. Combat, missions, characterization, driving, the endings, activities, dialog. 1.5 still has a ton of bugs with NPCs and vehicles, many of them immersion breaking, such as sitting around the camp fire with the nomads before the armored vehicle theft, and them drinking from invisible bottles or NPCs driving invisible cars. All the game endings are pretty much "V died immediately or 6-months later" from the easiest to the most secret. There is pretty much nothing to do in Night City beyond a few boring cloned missions. It's better than at launch, but its really nothing to write home around considering the core flaws.

    The paths are so fucking useless. Whether you chose Nomad, Street Kid or Corpo, only the intro is different. Everything else is the same.
    I think Johnny bombed Arasaka because they took Alt. He already hated corporations (because of his traumatic time as a soldier and how he saw corporations become richer than God at the expense of ordinary people) but when they took Alt, he went off. He was a ticking time bomb waiting to explode.

    It's been a year and a half and this game still burns to see what could've been. They've probably had to reallocate so many of their now limited resources to just fixing the game. And even after they fix it it'll still be just a straight forward action game with less choice than black ops 2.

    This game was a big disappointment for me. One of my most awaited games, especially after The Witcher 3, previous game which I waited like that was The Division, but knowing that the publisher is Ubisoft, I didn't have such expectations, because the game before which I waited from them was Watch Dogs, and that was another disappointment.
    But Cyberpunk, really, this was a big hit for me, from such a studio which gained so much trust from all gamers, this was a really hard one. Too many expectations, too much misleading information...
    And the sad truth that the updates and patches will only fix some bugs and polish what is already in the game, but won't change that the game doesn't have its soul besides all the cool graphics. They too much focused on the looks of the game and thus advertising, rather than the gameplay and what was promised.

    I was one of the people that bought into the hype because of how enthralled I was with Witcher 3, I tried W3 on a whim on ps4 a couple years ago and will admit I wasn't immeditely pulled in, it wasn't until the questline with the Baron and the missing wife/daughter (Sorry it's been a min, I actually just rebought it on Steam and have started replaying it) and the quest finished with either saving or killing the aborted fetus (Damn that was a good questline) after that I was hooked. Than usually when you have an amazing game like that the DLC will end up being trash but both Hearts of Stone and especially Blood and Wine were incredible, the finally boss in Blood and Wine was amazing. You are emotionally invested in almost every character Geralt comes across and almost every quest with a choice really mattered. When I first saw trailers and clips of CP2077 I wasn't to interested bc I'm not really into the whole futuristic cyberpunk asethetic but when I saw CDPR was behind it I started following it. I have it on PC and I made it about as far as you said it gets good until. First time I played Street Kid and got like 2 hours in and got bored and couldn't get back into it so I took like 6 months off and recently maybe 2 months ago I started over as Corpo and go got to like 2-3 hours in where you do the mission for Dexter Deshawn inside the corpo office, did a few side quests after but for as "living and breathing" as the city looks, its so dead. I remember preached that "every single person in Night City will have unique dialogue and be interactable with"... lmao theres like 10 voice lines total for civilians in the whole city it feels like. Honestly CDPR should have released that first 4 hours or whatever it is as idk what you would call it not a demo but as a preview idk but just been like "Look we know we said it is supposed to be releasing on such and such date but we really want 2077 to have the same high quality and polish as The Witcher 3 because of this we are going to need some more time, So we are releasing this 3-5 hour early look to anyone that pre ordered the game and we will have an update in the near future". Yes people would've been upset but in the long run I think we would've gotten a better game. This whole mentality from game companies of "Just give it to them on the release date and we will patch the bugs later on" is sooo stupid, it's ruining the industry.

    To think that I put more than 200 hours into this game on my base ps4 because I genuinely liked the story and continuously hope for the game to get better because I loved it's story and setting, but it's been 1 year and somehow the game is running worse than it did at launch, and still no signs of DLC
    I played through the witcher 3 too, on ps4 and PC, and I just feel sad for cyberpunk. I can't even fathom how many more hundreds of hours I would've poured into it if it was half a decent game.

    If they would of waited 1 to 2 years to release this game I have a feeling it really would have been a masterpiece It could have done the acid rain and weather shit. Had he dirty cops. Made it where your choices mattered like Detroit become human. Having the metro system would have been kinda cool. It really would be a damn good game especially if they got a good story mode down and a good open world.... well I don't know the more I realize all the shit it "could of had" the game really was just way to over hyped. Game developers need to learn from horizon or whatever the game is where you fly around space to different plantes where ever plant is different. But they really are basically the same few types of planets. Never overhype your own video game. Just show off your games graphics with a trailer. show-off the gameplay. And if it's good then the community will build up the hype everytime I've seen a developer hype up there game it sucks except for the new God of war game. I was hype for that game and it was even better than I thought it would be.

Sure, they did some bug fixes......but they have added ZERO content. Zero, zilch, nada, none. It's still just as bland and dead as day one, quests are just as fetchy. So disappointed with this game

    What’s funny is Witcher 3 was pretty buggy, had devs lying about features before and after the game release, etc. But since that game was still good and higher quality than everything else at the time, they got a pass. Witcher 1 also had to be re-released cause of how buggy it was hence the “Enhanced” edition.
