Despite its bugs Cyberpunk 2077 is still a beautiful and amazing game to me! Night City is enormous, busy and has so many explorable nooks and crannies! It will undoubtedly keep me captivated for a long time.
I just played it for the first time this weekend on my PC.
It's so beautiful. But so far (about 6 hours in) I don't think it's very special otherwise.
The story and characters seem engaging and interesting. The world building is great, but exploring the world is not as exciting as I was hoping for.
Take all I've said with a grain of salt. I hope to sink more time into it and share my ever evolving opinion.
Are there certain quests/POI I should be exploring first?
i think it's kinda campy. Like the world looks amazing and listening to the sounds around the city, I really like but the npcs are pretty meh even though they all look really interesting and could have stories of their own and some do but all in all, it's reminds me a bit of death stranding where the aesthetics are there but the game is missing something.
Yeah I agree with that. The more I've played the more I realize that the writing is trying so hard to be edgy to the point of it feeling cringey at points.
I agree with your Death Stranding statement. That game had amazing world building, and interesting concept. But it fell short when it tried to conclude itself. And the gameplay was very barebones.
I think Cyberpunk gameplay is super basic. It's fun, and the skills run deep. It is just not worth the hype it was given. I'll keep going until I get burned out. But I will for sure check it out in a year when they decide to fix it lol.
