I will probably go for Street kid first because that was the feeling of the first trailer, then Nomad for that Mad Max feeling and last Corpo. Love the re-playability of this game thru these choices.It was mentioned in this article that...
"There's also an option to choose your background: street kid, nomad, or corporate. It's not just for your head canon either. Your background opens up certain dialogue choices throughout the entire game. As a street kid, if someone's trying to scam you, you might be able to see through their bullshit having swindled plenty yourself. A character with a corporate background will have a better time navigating big business hierarchies."
Which background would you favor for your V?
After the LP there is a 6 month time jump. So actually you are not learning about the city the same time as V as V has a 6 month head start on you.....Personally, I'm going with Nomad first. 2077's Night City is so different and new to what we all know, so I think it'll be fun to be new to the city as V, too. They're as new to the city as we, the player, are. I like the idea of smuggling something through the border checkpoint and heading into the city, learning about it, how it works, etc. Learning everything alongside V. That way when I go through another lifepath, like Street Kid and Corpo, I'll have that insider knowledge that those versions of V will have.
I feel like this is useless nitpicking. The point is, Nomad V is the newest to the city of the three options and is the closest to being as new as us, the player.In a game in which the main story will probably take place over the course of a few months, 6 months comparatively is a long time.
Yeah, that's my train of thought for going Nomad for 1st playthrough. I'll discover NC just as my Nomad is. Might even help with the roleplay. It just fits well for me, especially since I never played the p&p.Nomad V is the newest to the city of the three options and is the closest to being as new as us, the player.
Same order for me tooWill be playing as a nomad first. Not too acquainted with the city, just like me. Then I'll play as a corpo. My third playthrough will be as a street kid since starting off as a carjacker was my least favorite prologue.
