More Thoughts on Cyberpunk 2077

Mon 04 Jan 2021, 20:47

Happy new year everyone. All I've done since last time is just play more 2077. Here are some more thoughts I've gathered. I need to dump them somewhere because my brain is just swarming with them and I don't have a podcast.

If you want screenshots and my initial thoughts you obviously go read my game Beaten post about it.

Obviously, if you still haven't finished the game and don't wanna get spoiled, you should leave now.

Wrapping up this post, I just wanna say I still absolutely love this game. It's a technical mess but if you can look past that (I honestly kinda love the strange bugs and will be kinda sad when they're patched out), I really think it's one of my favorite games of all time. Apart from games I've speedran, I don't know how many games I've spent this much time on.

There's just something special about it and I can't put my finger on it. It's the connection and story with Johnny, the city, how fun the missions are, the characters, the soundtrack, the voice acting... it just combines into this beautiful game that I enjoy every aspect of.

As I (think I) said in my original post: apart from the technical mess, I really don't have anything to complain about.

It's like my favorite game of all time as of right now.

Unless something unexpected happens in 2021, I plan on giving it my GOTY for 2021. Easily. I think it's more fair too since it'll (hopefully) have gotten more patches and maybe the next-gen updates. Giving a game that comes out in December the GOTY for the same year doesn't really feel right because of recency bias.

Anyway, I'mma go play more now. Later chooms.
