I am an avid fan of Cyberpunk 2020 and now Cyberpunk 2077. With this in mind I have noticed a few things that I felt could and should be addressed to restore faith in CDPR. These are just a few ideas, concepts, quality of life improvements, and immersion tips for CDPR. These will be listed in no particular order and I will continue to add to them as I play on.
A-Z For Night City
- Bugs/Glitches/Errors- A.) Character clipping while using the Monowire. B.) Broken animations/sound while jacking into access-points.
- Immersion is everything in CP2077- A.) AI should actually ride motorbikes. B.) NCPD should drive/chase in their vehicles. C.) Cyberware installation animations; in the initial Cyberware installation scene you witness the installation of your optics and Smartlink system. This needs to be implemented for all modifications at every Ripperdoc. This seemed obvious to me and myself and friends included assumed that was the level of immersion we should expect. D.) The ability to examine your weapon including removing the magazine and chambering a round with animations/sounds. E.) Flesh out and finalize the rail system. Even if it only allows you to move around the carriage with the ability to explore multiple viewpoints ie; standing sitting and focusing. F.) Hostile and vengeful gangs. If a player has murdered an exorbitantly large number of (insert gang/faction of choice here) then they should from time to time seek you out in vehicular combat/ambushes. Insert drive by HERE...sometimes you get sprayed down. G.) Have the NCPD and MaxTac arrive in vehicles. H.) Some of the people I kill should have Trauma Team memberships that are active; insert AV with killer team at local. I.) Crafting should afford you the option of choosing the material/colors of your weapons. Even if they are just the generic choices that you find. You should also be provided an opportunity to craft at a station not from a menu anywhere in the world. Why have an armory room if you can't use it to create things? J.) Separate your stash items based on type more than they are; you have a closet in the front of the apartment, why not use that for clothing and have a series of 4 of each item (shirts, shoes, jackets, glasses, ect) to be displayed for visual appeal? K.) It is 2077 can I have a flashlight attachment for Christ sakes? L.) Street Racing...Street Racing...Street Racing; there are a million different tiny garages all over Night City. Give some to the player with, I don't know...maybe some crafting stations! This would also open up a new segment of possible customization of vehicles and or the ability to just obtain new ones with each garage. Oh and can we please have a place to park at our apartment Megaplex? P.S. I love the driving so don't let anyone discourage your efforts. The nail was struck directly on the head. M.) When riding the motorbikes allow the 1st person camera to be adjusted and remain. Some of us prefer to see the fuel tank of the bike and look through the wind visor. N.) When pressing buttons and activating things, animate the character doing it. O.) My hair never grows out...I never get ink...do you see where I am going with this? Again, it's 2077 I want to get plastered at the AfterLife and drunk drive to get a tattoo after shaving myself bald with animations damn it! P.) Drugs and prostitutes, I figured there would have been way more pushers in Night City as well as Joytoys. Q.) Why don't vendors specialize? It takes all of the fun out of going into a new store and realizing I could have stayed closer to the apartment to buy a pistol as most vendors carry every type of weapon. I want to trek halfway across the city to buy a new suit from Avanti only to bump into a street vendor selling pistols from the back of Villefort Alvarado in a neon lit alleyway. Oh, and it would provide a wonderful opportunity to have the NCPD swoop in to make a bust...better run or shoot my way out. R.) Can the NCPD please do patrols! I mean, do cops not walk the beat anymore? In 2077 wouldn't the NCPD use drones to simply patrol. S.) Can I talk to a cop without them becoming hostile? T.) Do Medias not cover massive shootouts in Night City? Have them come in with security forces and film the aftermath! I want to see interviews going down on the street. U.) When I leave my car the wheels don't always have to straighten out. I want the turned sometimes for pictures. V.) Can the Nomads be freakin' Nomads please. Let us see some convoys and interact with them as they move. W.) CHOO2 is one of my favorite concepts from original CyberPunk lore. It keeps everything from 4-bangers to V12's plausible in the distant future. The common denominator here though, is refueling! Have NPC's use gas stations and fuel their rides. That seemed like a no brainer to me. I couldn't tell you how many times I decided to drive my Toyota Avante to the edge of Night City, pickup a Screamsheet after filling my tank then walk inside, stick the place up and burn rubber back into the city! I wanna do the same dang thing lol. X.) Gore...more gore! Bodies should remain until after a city morgue detail arrive and setup a crime scene. Make it risky for the character to come back to the scene of their crime too soon. Y.) If I shoot a damn tire it should lose air with animations and noise. Z.) Finally, SCREAMSHEETS! I want to read about my dang exploits! Maybe keep "copies" at my apartment in my armory room as records.
- Don't get discouraged at all. The game is solid and just needs this little bit to push it over the top. Seriously, people are living with 1st world problems. Everyone involved with this game have continued to go above and beyond and should remain proud. Cyberpunk 2077 is epic and no amount of naysayers will change the legacy you all are creating. It's like the Witcher (I have never played the Witcher series however, I have read extensively about it's development and model) the game can be refined into the masterpiece your team set out to create. There is a long road but if CDPR double down and simply invest in these things the game will rightfully take it's place on the throne of next-gen games. Dig in and make fools out of the haters!
