Hi! I love CDPR and look forward to their new games, it's nice to be among people who share my interests.
I've been participating on the forums for a while but it's until now that I run into this thread So, better late than never:
As someone who was jobless, Cyberpunk 2077 was my reason to find a new job after being somewhat stuck in depression I finally got back the confidence to get a job and recently was approved and had a contract. So my dream of buying a new PC and playing the game on maximum graphics, with my vacation for two weeks being already set from the launch day of CP.
Wow! At first I didn't click on this thread because I am reading posts passively since 2010 or so, and now I'm really late to the party.
Only recently I started answering some questions or posting stuff and I really like the atmosphere in here
Just a moment ago I finally read the first page of this thread and now the last and I got really emotional about the little infos and stories in here, and how people come together because of these great games.
So, I am a Witcher fan since Witcher 1, because I am originally from Poland and my parents moved to Germany when I was six, I still speak and read Polish because they didn't want me to forget it. When I bought Witcher 1, I noticed the option for Polish language and since my Dad loved to watch me play RPGs and that was kind of our quality time to talk about stuff, I chose Polish and loved the voice actors immediately and he loved explaining stuff to me i couldn't know, like the parallels between Olgierd and Pan Twardowski (polish literature) in Hearts of Stone etc. My Dad and me, we both really loved the game and its stories. Even when I moved away, he would sometimes come just to play and watch Witcher 2 with me and I showed him the main story beats, made saves especially for him, to show him cool and funny and important moments.
And I did the same for Witcher 3, I remember being fondly moved by the Bloody Baron storyline with him, and then when I invited him to play the ending of Witcher 3 together (), when the credits rolled, it was a really sad moment. I remember him saying "So...that is the end?"it was the ending in the snow, Geralt playing with Ciri, then she left for Nilfgaard
And we both got sad, because our playing together had come to an end, too, like in the game.
At first I didn't want to write this, but he passed away this year and I miss him so so much, and when I play the games, I kind of hear his comments and his laugh and I know exactly what he would have said or asked... So, those games really mean a lot to me...
One thing we did together was watch the CP2077 gameplay reveal and we were looking forward to it. I guess I'll still be making saves for him.
