You know what made The Witcher 3 one of the best games of all time? You know what made Baldur's Gate II one of the best games of all time? Thief: The Dark Project? The first Fallout? Tetris? Super Mario Bros.? Half-Life? Certainly not the ability to hit the gym, get fat or live wherever you want.Really huh?
You know what made gta san andreas one of the best games of all time, because it gave the player *freedom* to gym,to get fat, TO LIVE wherever you wanted,cdpr has a chance here to take that and run with it. But no theyd rather limit players because of storyline,if the story is so great why does a limiting factor have to be implemented to make it work?
In other words, it's irrelevant what made San Andreas one the best games of all time. CP77 is a different game and it will have it's own things to experience.
