The first thought that comes to mind in terms of the NPC's is to have the NPC's doing what is being alluded to all over the city. This is for me one of the biggest problems with the game, so much is alluded to but isn't really there and it's not like you have to go searching for the curtain to look behind to see this reality, the illusion is presented on a giant screen that says CURTAIN on it.
- Have NPC's actually committing crimes, not standing around waiting for you to show up and stop them.
- Have NPC's doing drive by shootings or racing or running from the cops through the city etc.
- Let the player sit down at a noodle stand and eat some noodles. Hell just let the player sit down for starters.
CDPR's Night City is dead, give it some life. As it is, it's one step above a virtual reality kiosk tour of a still image.
LOL, I just set the crowd density to medium because I hat too many NPC, too many cars and traffic jams, there are crimes investigated by the police as you drive by, even accidents.
I'm happy with the City and the patches to come. By no means will I slander and demean the work of CD PR due to Cyberpunk just being Cyberpunk. The hate isn't warranted, people generalized the hate bullet - aim focuses on the game+dev+publisher when we all know its a few individuals that deserve a punch in the head and dismissal for allowing the release to go the way it did.
Dont hate the developer or the game. Find the people responsible - email them ya bullets.
You have a good point i agreeOkay, first let me praise the game. I'm having a lot of fun with it. I think its amazing, and looks great.
And my corpo run so far has been reasonable bugless.
And here is the but: But the city feels some times mega empty for a mega city.
Night City looks amazing but sometimes just feels empty.
And to be honest I think that's not a design choice but a hardware constriction choice.
In the more scripted parts of the game its packed, but when you travel from a to b it can feel like New York right now devoid of live, 1 random person walking here one car driving there. Not what I expect from a Mega city.
Not slighting the devs/CDPR but it struck me a when I was driving around, GTAV felt more lived in sometimes then NC does.
What are your experiences and thoughts?
I wouldn't put that much thought into the lore since jackie magically gets his guns at the Heist after putting them in del car or Takemura getting out of the parade with hanako after struggling to jump on it with non function implants is still a mistery to meThey're having a cyberpsychosis epidemic and people are social distancing and sheltering in place obviously

Well according to some text in the game NC did lose %30 of its population in 2076
the 3 path's have plot holes all over the place 1 example Street kid padre acts like he never met you before which is absurdI wouldn't put that much thought into the lore since jackie magically gets his guns at the Heist after putting them in del car or Takemura getting out of the parade with hanako after struggling to jump on it with non function implants is still a mistery to me
I actually noticed this too, so I drove through downtown Tacoma and reflected on what is different about Night City and actual American cities.Okay, first let me praise the game. I'm having a lot of fun with it. I think its amazing, and looks great.
3) There are waaay fewer homeless people in Night City. Not nearly enough tents.
