There are so many 2020 characters i would love to see in 2077 , Johnny , Alt , Morgan . I am also looking forward to meeting new ones like Lizzy Wizzy.I don't think it's that they can't put celebrities in, it's that from a lore perspective, it doesn't make sense to have people like Lady Gaga in-game. They could do it, sure. But aside from marketing purposes, to answer your "why shouldn't there be" question, the answer is simple: lore/artistic consistency. It would be jarring to stumble across several real-life celebrities in a game that already has many, many of its own lore-friendly options with their own relevant backstories and role in the world.
If they were to put a celebrity in the game, it would not likely be that celebrity. It would be a fictional version of them that they voice act and perform motion capture for.
:|Why cant you use real world celebrities in fictious IP based on real life. Go every town in the world, and they are proud of their celebrities or even anybody whos slightly famous. Night City should have the best ones, some damn Johnny Silverhand isnt qonna to cut it.
You watch movies with celebrities though. Celebrities are everywhere, you dont need celeb culture in order to like them, celebs are nothing more than tools for bigger industry.Maybe it’s because I’m not into celebrity culture, but am I one of the few people who doesn’t care whether Gaga is in or out?
I think she did “Pokerface” that one time, but that’s pretty much all I know about her. If she’s not performing Pokerface within the game, I’ll completely miss the reference of whatever NPC is supposed to be her.
If she’s in, I hope her performance and pay is as good as any other of the game’s many talented actors and that she’ll fit within the setting. If not, I’ll be none the wiser.
Do you know how the industry works who makes most of the money and what is marking? Do you know what marketing from the industry can do? Can market a hack into talented genius. Is all about who has your back. Look around the music industry is filled with them and the reason music is mediocre. The decide what will make it in mainstream the recording houses / movie industry.Must be nice living in a bubble...
He was actually very good at his role, though. It fit well.The entire thing is about marketing, and likely why we got so few dialog lines with Emhyr...because they were so damn expensive.
You have hit the nail on head here. All this Lady Gaga stuff is as good as any marketing some hot shot could think of , all that free publicity .The entire thing is about marketing, and likely why we got so few dialog lines with Emhyr...because they were so damn expensive.
Everything right, except it's not for free. Those VIP are expensive.You have hit the nail on head here. All this Lady Gaga stuff is as good as any marketing some hot shot could think of , all that free publicity .
