Cyberpunk 2077: A Major Disappointment

Cyberpunk 2077: A Major Disappointment

In the year of 2020, many terrible things happened, social distancing, major lockdown, virus, etc, causing many to flock to their homes and mostly do nothing, but something arose. Video games. So many of these came out to help us during this time of lockdown, from the peaceful and surreal Animal Crossing to the intense adrenaline rushing game of Doom. But one, sticks out from the rest. Cyberpunk 2077. First announced 7 years ago, Cyberpunk was promised to be the best game of its time, with stunning graphics and a compelling storyline. Years passed, and no new information was announced since 2013, until finally, in 2020, at a virtual conference, they showed off the trailer. The video showed the best things of the game, but the real game would be disappointment. Late 2020. The game was being hyped by the gaming community. It was said to be the greatest game of all time by critics. Up until the day of release.

When people got the game, it was terrible, bugs everywhere, everything was unpolished and finished, pedestrians flew into the air, cars wonked out, it was terrible. The graphics didn’t live up to expectations, but the story didn’t seem all too good. It took 7 years to get this out to the public, all that work, for nothing. Reviews from youtubers, critiques, and the community weren’t the best, mentioning all the bugs that deterred them from doing anything.

The main reason why Cyberpunk 2077 wasn’t living up to expectations was because it was rushed. People continuously asked and complained when it was going to come, and CD Project Red took a lot longer than expected, and still couldn’t finish it. They broke their promises, and left a terrible impression on the game. The company did try to fix the problems but it was no use, the game had already been marked as one of the most buggiest games of 2020. The game probably could have been better, people expected more, but it just didn’t live up to it.
