Like many non-gamers, I’ve experienced Cyberpunk 2077 mostly via news articles and Twitter posts, especially about glitches. And I have to say — this is probably the best way to experience it.
I mean, look — I’ve been hearing about this game for years because many of my co-workers and friends are gamers. Everyone gets all the hype!
Drama and Chaos
But immediately after launch, there was drama: Sony removed Cyberpunk 2077 from its stores and started offering refunds. Microsoft also offers refunds, Likewise with Best Buy and Game Stop. The employee of the game maker, CD Projekt Red, is revolting! If your file is too large, it will become corrupt and useless, Epilepsy warning, DMCA attack, too many bugs.
One of my friends bought it and basically went to the bunker to play it for a few days. He called it “a wonderful mess,” but also said that its weakest part was combat, and “the AI is dumb as bricks.” Another unable to complete Johnny’s side quest and were furious about it. Like, not ironically angry: he wanted so badly to meet Nancy at the goth club, but the NPC he was supposed to be talking to wasn’t there. (Also, as a condition of using her story, she asked that I mention that Judy is her wife.)
This thing is a complete mess, my main conclusion is that the people who enjoy the game the most are people who know and like many gamers, but they are not gamers themselves. And for me, the best part of Cyberpunk 2077 is glitches.
