I would've agreed with you had MGS5 had the controls ported over better. That said, I trust CDPR to not get so caught up in the storyline or world design to overlook a very basic thing like having controls that work equally well on all platforms.I've said this before, and I'll say it again.
There are only two developers in the entire videogame industry that I unconditionally trust. Only two.
CDPR and Hideo Kojima.
You are aware of the intentional sabotage of MGSV by the publisher, Konami, aren't you? Including Konami's handling of the PC version?I would've agreed with you had MGS5 had the controls ported over better.

Concur. I was late to the Witcher party. Fallout was my baby yet Witcher 3 won me over and absolutely deserved GOTY.I'm joining the forums just to add to the CDPR appreciation thread going on.
When a game is this anticipated and this hyped, everyone starts picturing how it will be. For a hundred million fans, there will be a hundred million different ideas. And most of us are creatures of habit, we want something that's just like that thing we liked but a bit better.
CD Projekt RED could have given us that thing we liked but a bit better. Instead they went for the best they could make. They made choices, they took risks, they crafted something unique and special.
And yet here on the forums people are acting all "my disappointment is immeasurable and my day is ruined". I've read lots of comments saying "I won't buy the game now" or "the hype is dead" and, I kid you not, "my dreams are shattered". All of which leads to one singular question.
Are you freaking serious?
Is there any company in to he world who has earned our trust more than CDPR? Have you ever seen the press so unanimously enthusiastic for a preview? And yet people here are acting as spoiled, entitled brats. Doesn't it conform 100% to your expectations? Big deal.
I am genuinely sorry for people with simulation sickness, but everyone, CDPR is creating the best game they can, they are under no obligation to cater to your every whim. You are buying a copy, not having one handcrafted bespoke for you.
Unasked for personal trivia time: I didn't even care for The Witcher 3 when it came out. I hadn't enjoyed the first one, and at the time I was playing Dragon Age: Inquisition. I didn't much care about dark fantasy and hadn't read a single line of Sapkowski. Then I tried it at a friend's, set aside my prejudices for a second and holy fuck it was amazing. I bought the game that same day.
That's to say: gamers, chill the fuck out. When something you hoped for doesn't precisely match your expectations, it's easy to feel hurt. But give them a freaking chance, because they deserve it more than anyone. And because anyone who saw the gameplay concurs that it's amazing.
And CDPR, if you are reading this, you are freaking amazing and keep on blazing your own trail. I'm sure there is a silent vast majority who trusts you to know better than us. It's just that angry minorities are better at being loud. We love you.
Exactly this. CDP are not idiots, they knew what will come after revealing all this info and despite having an experience in creating a TPP game, they decided to go in a completely different way. So there has to be a f*** good reason for this which I am 100% sure we will see on that demo the press is so impreessed with.You guys are designing YOUR game. Not others' game, YOURS!
You guys knew there would be some blowback from the game being mostly first person perspective going from the witcher series to this but you revealed it anyways. You wanted to show cyberpunk could be shown off in a trailer during mostly daytime and it being bright and sunny and knew this might not be what people expected but you did it anyways. You ended an amazing trilogy with a legit game of the generation all-time great game and you said "no milking. time to do something new and fresh."
You guys said cyberpunk is much bigger and much more ambition than said great game, the witcher 3, and you know what, I believe it now! I'm so tired of the negativity and I'm glad you guys are designing what is yours and pondsmith's direction. Do not be phased by all of the negativity because the internet will get riled up over everything and anything. What you're doing seems to be working since I still think you have the single most viewed trailer of E3 and also because apparently the media were absolutely jaw-dropped floored at what they saw in that 50 min behind closed doors demo today.
I'm quite pleased with this showing from e3 from you guys.
Yes, and yet even though I know it was Konami and not Kojima that was responsible for that fiasco, my faith was still shaken in Kojima's ability to deliver no matter how much I respect his ability to design. At the root of it is that Kojima is only a designer while CDPR is a team. That allows CDPR to have a lot more control over all aspects of the game than one single designer ever could. And I think that that will make a huge difference in a world where great ideas have been ruined by less-than-stellar publishers.You are aware of the intentional sabotage of MGSV by the publisher, Konami, aren't you? Including Konami's handling of the PC version?
CDP found the gap in the market. Let's do what fans really want/expect/miss etc. Other companies went in other directions because they already went through this stage many, many years ago, and wanted to push the branch into other directions, maybe even more profitable. CDP has had a great desire to succeed. Maybe they won't change and remain faithful because other companies let them fill this gap, let them offer the experience that people miss. CDPR is not a poor company, like some indie ones. Thus, they do not need to be greedy but just give their fans what they expect. Maybe that's the recipe. At least good for the time being. We also must remember the originality of the Witcher games, especially in the West and very little big stuff in the Cyberpunk world. It is again, filling some gaps in the market.To echo everything else that was said here, I'm MUCH more excited for what they're doing than a Witcher-like Cyberpunk.In this day and age that many developers(not all, there are still consumer-friendly publishers besides CDPR) get greedier and greedier, CDPR doesn't move a single inch from their beliefs and that's incredibly refreshing to see. As a computer science student and an aspiring game designer, it is awesome to see such a developer and let me tell you, for all of us , it would be a dream come true to work for a developer like that. For me, the ultimate goal of a game company that aims to be relevant throughout time isn't to make a great game , it is to get better with every game and that's the insane thing they don't just get better, they get exponentially better. So, CDPR, please, take your time and perfect this game according to your vision.
