I never had any interest in the game to begin with. The extreme overhyping and the white knights crusading against anyone who dare say anything remotely negative about the game just makes me glad that I never get baited by these type of games that promise the moon and the stars and end up giving you a flaming bag of dog poop on your porch.

The fact that so much hype for this game has died over the last month is probably a good thing for the game. People will go into it with more grounded expectations and when the game ends up being sub-par, the backlash against it will be much less. My expectation is that "review" sites will get on their knees for the game, as they do most other highly anticipated games and give it a 9/10 or 10/10 (pending on how much they get paid to over-praise the game), while user reviews will likely set in the 5/10 to 7/10 range.

This game is probably going to be a prime example of more options not always being the best thing, and I can see people getting tired of it pretty fast, except for the diehard blind fanboys that won't be able to bring themselves to admit that the game isn't the 100/10 grand masterpiece that they need it for whatever reason.

I may eventually give it a try myself, but this is definitely one of those wait until it's on sale for $10-$20 kind of games.

I think it's interesting that this game has promised the moon and the stars to you, I wish they had done the same for me, heh. Would be quite flattering.

I mean, I guess you can find the negativity anywhere if you look for it - every fanbase has it in my opinion. In the end, it's just a game and people are excited for it, that's all. I tend not to put any stock into silly internet wars made up of people with arguments that lack any substance.

Anyway, I am of course cautiously optimistic about the game. It's had some issues in development but from what I read, it's mostly issues with the previous gen versions that are causing them trouble. In the end, if the game isn't good, well, it isn't good. But if it's great, well, I'm not letting anyone influence my opinion based on the perception of its fanbase either. Smile Then again, I'm someone who usually refuses to watch game trailers or reviews before I try a game out (unless the dev has an awful or unproven track record).

CP2077 has been my second most anticipated game of the year behind The Last of Us II and I'll be getting it for Christmas for sure. If not as a gift, just for myself.

The game hasn't promised me anything, because quite frankly I don't give two shits about the game, but if you look anywhere online, you'll see people talking about this game as if it's the second coming. I personally don't have any plans to play this game unless I can get it for next to nothing, because I know this game is going to end up the same as games like Skyrim, Red Dead Redemption 2, The Last of Us 2, Death Stranding, Final Fantasy XV, The Witcher 3 and other such highly anticipated games that came out the last decade. They generate a ton of hype, sell off of that hype, but in the end they turn out to be mediocre at their absolute best.

Yeah, I don't feel the game has been hyped up massively by the developers. It seems to be more the fans or media doing it to the point that it's hard for me to read about the game without wondering how much of what I'm reading is just hype. I don't know if anyone else has seen this but an article is making the rounds on various outlets stating that a developer for this game has 175 hours so far and isn't even going for 100% and isn't close to done. Yet that developer is actually the QA lead who is on purposely taking their time because their entire job is to check every single inch of that game for problems, but that little fact is being either left out or pushed aside in favour of fluffing up the game.

I don't expect the game to be bad, but it's hard to tell truly how good it is supposed to be when you can't get a clear picture of what it's aiming for due to the pedestal people keep putting it onto. I can see it ending up like a TLoU2 situation where people either adore it or hate it because of the expectations they personally set themselves and then it's going to be hard to tell which side is genuine and even harder to figure out where the middle ground actually lies because it gets drowned out by the clear cut sides.

What's hilarious impo is that the whole game for Cyberpunk 2077 has leaked online already. XD So people are being spoiled for what happens in the game long before it was available to purchase.
