I agree that most AAA titles are good. It's pretty hard to find a bad one but I guess you'll always have those peeps who think it's cool to hate something for being something popular (It's really no different from hating CoD as a franchise or EA as a company). We seem to be in a generation where almost nothing is good enough, The Witcher 3 is damn good though, I was so happy to see it got raving reviews even from those who hate rpg's and only played open world action games. Chance says that a repeat of that favor is highly unlikely. I mean Mass Effect Andromeda wasn't by any means a "bad game" but it promised much and didn't live up to the first 3. Track record means nothing to me because of it, even Obsidian is an example.
And I totally agree with CDPR games getting better with every release. The Witcher 1 was horrid, The Witcher 2 was good and The Witcher 3 was great. What makes CDPR unique is that most of their had no interest in The Witcher series before The Witcher 3 became a thing. As I said, 90% of CDPR's fanbase didn't exist until the third game was released or shown at E3. Sadly, most fans still aren't even aware that there is a Witcher book series nor have ever played/have any interest of playing the other 2 games but they may just be what shapes the development decisions of CDPR as they further develop the game. Who knows, they may squeeze that third person mode in the end since they are nice people and they love to please fans - why it would be bad is because it's not what they really wanted to do and when they stray from that path, it's never really a good thing so while there's no point for me to worry about that right now, it still worries me of that possibility may come into play at some point in the cycle.
I have no doubt Cyberpunk 2077 will be huge and sell well though - not that sales or popularity ever mattered to me anyway. I can't wait to see the game play but don't want to set myself up for disappointment. I wouldn't be disappointed if it was Deus Ex or a first person Omikron. I'll be disappointed if it's like an rpg version of Perfect Dark.
I would really love it if it was a healthy mix of Deus Ex and Omikron The Nomad Soul lol
As far as what's been revealed, I've read everything I could find on the game and that's also what sacres me. It almost sounds too good to be true, I can almost smell in the back of my throat, a hellish repeat of No Man's Sky (or even worse - Star Citizen in terms of release date maximization only I mean). It's far more easier to mess a game up than to make a great one. Even with all the hype removed, I still need to wait and see the actual gameplay before getting excited but I'm glad you and everyone else here is. If it turns out to have great things going on and the devs show some gameplay, I would pe-purchase it asap.
Will Cyberlunk 2077 revolutionize games as we know it? If course not but it is certainly welcome to try, I will not say no to it. Now, I command CDPR to keep up the great work and with confidence believing that it will be at least decent to that regard - one would think it cannot be worse than the first Witcher anyway. I'll drink to that
