As a Witcher fan since the very beginning I can't even express how I'm disappointed right now. I didn't want an exact copy of Witcher nor the unrealistic imaginary game of many people from Cyberpunk 2077. I just wanted a natural evolution of Witcher 3. But the final released game was far inferior to all of that. Constant branching paths with "The most engaging open world" that marketing said is nowhere to be found. However, even since the release CDPR has been telling us that it will get better with the time just like Witcher 3 as if that game was this much broken at release. Also I don't like how people are pretending that this is a Live Service game to get better with the time. Cyberunk 2077 doesn't have the branching paths or the length to withstand that much time. No AAA studio should follow that principle.
Here's a list of things Cyberpunk 2077 lacks that even random cookie cutter Ubisoft games include.
* Physics that is tolerable in 2020. Not rockstar Physics but some kinda satifying physics system which won't make Isaac Newton jump from a apple tree.
* Water effects? Are they serious? Game doesn't have any water effects. Witcher 3 water effects still look better than most games.
* Brain dead NPCs
* Vehicles that actually know how to GO AROUND
I have no idea whether any AAA Singleplayer game patched in this much essential stuff to their game after the release. Roadmap kinda gave me hope because looks like they are taking more than 6 months for the Next Gen update. That much time maybe enough for the development of those features.
However, I remember how Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition patched in so much stuff for free including new cutscenes & lengthy quests that made the game so much more enjoyable. Also, Blood & Wine had a huge improvement of performance from the base game. I've never scene a DLC having less system requirements than the base game.
So, if anybody can do it, it's CD Projekt Red.
