No, it does not matter to a significant degree. To me, at least.Does it really matter if CP or W pedestrian Ai is better IF both are flat compared to other games?
In both games, NPCs are there to fill the background.
In both games, meat and potatoes are story, characters and quests.
As long as NPCs are not doing anything stupid and immersion breaking, I consider them good enough. Because game is not about them.
