Right, I'm in the same boat as you. Played 300+ hours of Fallout 4. This is just a much better and deeper RPG experience. I think the problem with it really was that it was too ambitious. The scale, depth, verticality.Let's agree to disagree!
I spent over 300 hours in Fallout 4 and loved it, but CP2077 beats it by a very long shot.(At least for my taste)
But if you are gonna compare both, you need to compare them both at the state they were in at launch, excluding all the patches, DLC and expansion for Fallout. Fallout 4 was also a mess when it launched, especially if you had an Nvidia card.
Obviously, I hope they can make some improvements, but it really is an incredible feat as it is.
You conveniently left out the body modification system. You have different quality levels of quickhacks and body mods as well. The benefits from perks alone are much more incremental but the RPG leveling system for Cyberpunk 2077 is much wider and deeper than Fallout 4's.Well... if i compare let's say... the perk systems of both games... CP77 falls waaay short (at least for me).
The gameplay is just a lot more varied than what Fallout 4 offered.

I think they perfect the sandbox in this game as well given enough time. When you are a studio that makes a new game every 5 years you can't afford to have that game fail. Way too much riding on it.Thank you for this in all its sarcastic glory. It is unbelievable that people are hard-comparing CP2077 to games that have similar elements but are clearly not of the same cloth.
CP2077 should be compared to (the new and inferior) Fallout games, DeusEx titles and System Shock and its derivatives. As there is no real agreed on academic definition for rpg games and their subgenres (CP2077 would in my opinion be a modern action adventure rpg with FPS and stealth mechanics), we can only really agree or bicker (yes, not debate but bicker) on this theme. There is no real "truth" to this matter, just mostly subjective opinions.
One should also remember that Rockstar has remade and perfected their sandbox adventure concept for a decade and over multiple different games. CDPR has just released their first ever 1st person action rpg with a living and breathing scifi setting. TW3 did not come out of nowhere to be as successful as it was and is, CDPR made two games before it and had around 10 years for honing their concept. Rockstar has made their own journey with sandbox titles and naturally will be more refined in all things related to the sandbox mechanics in a straight comparison. It is just insane to compare CDPRs first modern setting games sandbox elements to titles like GTAV or RDR2 and demand the same and even higher level of polish straight out of the box. No matter what their marketing department has been saying. CDPR made this game from scratch.
