You don't need to feel bad. The reason for crunch is not the gamer. It's the producers fault and the manager's job to stop the devs from overworking. For a publicly traded company like CD Projekt it is especially complicated because you have investors you have to answer to, you're on the stock market, they want a release date, so they know when all of the money you've been spending on the thing is due to get return, so it's more about giving those people a release date than it is giving gamers a release date. It's a busyness requirement and we can't really do much about it.Should I pre order Cyberpunk?
I don't want to feed into crunch and undue stress for the developers. I suspect that pre order culture is the reason for crunch among other bad practices in the industry.
