CDPR have shown a fair bit now when we put all the pieces together. There's probably about 90 minutes worth of Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay to look at and 15 minutes of trailers. So before we start the discussion here are all the bits to remind yourselves:
Obviously 7 years ago when that first trailer dropped got people real excited and then too much time passed and it most likely diminished. However, I think the E3 2018 trailer really put the game into the mainstream. It was a great trailer and still is. The gameplay 48 minutes whilst informative, left a lot of questions unanswered. The deep dive 15 minutes that followed simply didn't show too much especially compared to the 50 minute demo I saw at Gamescom 2019 it was based on.
This latest gameplay showing the starting areas of three backstories looks vastly different which is great, but there are some sections of the gameplay that don't appear so good (driving especially). Some people suggest the gunplay looks like it needs tightening (not sure how difficulty settings affect gameplay).
I realized after seeing the 2019 gameplay demo first hand, I needed to temper expectations simply because they were going into overdrive. There's a lot to like about this game, but some things shown need a bit of refinement. Voice-acting could be better in some instances (that really stood out for me after viewing the Gamescom 50 minute demo last year) and people noticed the lack of people/cars in the streets when driving around (that seems to have not changed since the 48 minute gameplay reveal).
CDPR says what is shown isn't final as a caveat, but the game releasing on current gen and next gen systems puts it in an awkward middle-ground. Hopefully, next gen versions don't just get a resolution bump or fps increase but rather additional props and levels of detailing as well.
For me, I am excited for the game and it seems those who played it recently remain fairly impressed with it after four hours. But we need to see what Joe average thinks.
So I appreciate people on this sub likely haven't played the game to get a real feel for it, but I am wondering now that more media is available for this title are you as excited as before or has that excitement diminished somewhat?
