This is something that happens when a game company releases a game that is beloved by people and critics pretty much every franchise or game that becomes popular will have a sequel that will be burdened by these expectations,some people back in 2004 thought that Half Life 2 is the worst sequel,some people think that Zelda and Mario became bad after OOT and Mario 64 and the list goes on.Genuine question here - why is Cyberpunk 2077 getting so much attention of that kind? And, apparently, Witcher 3 got it to a comparable degree for what reason? I've been waiting for Cyberpunk 2077 since 2012 or 2013 (I don't know which I've seen first - the title reveal or the cybersquad teaser) and tried my best to follow everything official or trustworthy there was about this game, but my expectations didn't need managing at all. Did I miss a huge mass of material from CDPR promising, like, 100% and another 100% that everything we see, hear or think and imagine about the game is going to be in it no matter what?
im pretty sure Cyberpunk will be way more criticized than the witcher 3 and it will be often compared to it.
