    So obviously we should have Enclave soldiers pegging commoners on the streets. As mentioned before, truly impressive mental gymnastics to justify gay shit and societal decline that found their way into games.

    So cyberpunk in other words. It might just not be the fiction genre for you, y'know.

    And why is that? What integral elements of the cyberpunk genre do you think that it is missing?

    Really...? There are no punk elements. The dystopian elements are presented in a colorful way both metaphorically and non-metaphorically. We can talk about this for hours, we all see the same footage I believe, forget the hype fags here. The game in general simply looks too appealing for the masses.

    We also want to like the game, we also have the need to play a production that big that offers the cyberpunk elements that *they* are claiming all these years that they will deliver and for some weird fucking reason they are not showing these gameplay moments to us. I also took part on the private presentation of the dev team before the corona shit and I couldn't see any of these elements.

    The last tweet from the CEO was also totally misleading (I really hope it will prove me wrong), claiming that this *IS* a *dark* HC CRPG. So why claim this instead of just present it ?

    So again, my problem is not that the game would be probably Witcher 3 with guns (I fucking enjoyed Witcher 3, I think it was a great production but not a great CRPG), it's their production, they can do whatever the fuck they like. I do have a problem though when they're claiming that this is Torment or whatever in the dark future.

    Cyberpunk has never been about being "Tranny Utopia". Even arguing that position would have been considered ridiculous mere 5-10 years ago. Reviewing Genre defining works of the past several decades generally proves this to be the case and he's completely right about that, this is the factual truth no matter how much you or other people object or project or claim otherwise. This is Identitarians trying to hijack the genre to push their ideology while turning its premise on its head. But we've been over this in this very thread what feels like a dozen times at length:

    Even reviewing the changes made via materials released within the development cycle of this specific game shows that they've had an entirely different vision when they started out:

    Cyberpunk is a subgenre of science fiction. C2077 is focused on design rather than science, e.g. cars, guns, clothing, etc., which is a trademark of futurism. CDPR artists approached this from a design standpoint, rather than a worldbuilding standpoint. Everything is slick and well-designed, yet there is simply no leisure required for that in actual cyberpunk dystopia.

    Much in the same way, this horrible future is ridden with hopeful laughing people having the best time of their lives. Cyberpunk worlds are dark and depressing by definition, they aren't an Oceans Eleven movie or college field trips.

    It needs more actual cyberpunk, less futurism. More punk, less cyber.

    Yeah, and I'm sure adjustable penis and tooth size sliders definitely weren't a waste of development resources.

    Every fantasy game ever.
    Sounds a shitload better than "everything is sexy/hot/stylish and drenched in pink" that CP2077 is shaping up to be.

    Cyberpunk is a great setting when it's tackled by people that don't use it as their Sodom and Gomorrah outlet. Too much glamour, not enough cynicism.

    number 28 in top codex rpg list

    http://feministing.com/2014/03/20/n...inclusive-games-show-hope-for-gaming-culture/

    "
    Shadowrun Returns, and its recently released sequel Shadowrun: Dragonfall, was noteworthy for being a successfully crowdfunded, independent enterprise. Its seed money came from a Kickstarter campaign that won it 1.8 million dollars—1.4 million more than the developers originally asked for. It was not, in any sense, billeted as a feminist or LGBT-positive game, necessarily, but it was also not sold to gamers as a misogynist masculinity-simulator grinding over an economy of objectification. It was sold as a strategic, turn-based roleplaying game, based on a beloved franchise, that just so happened to have excellent writing—and the beneficiaries of that writing happened to be a wide assortment of fascinating women and queer characters of all backgrounds.
    "

    Cyberpunk 2077 bad because gay man yet you tards vote this into 28 spot of your gay list?

    Mhmm... Playing this version has to be a paramount savoury experience that rivals only watching Lord of the Rings CAM-RIP version with russian dubbing, recorded together with coughing and commenting people. 10/10 have fun!

    :nocountryforshitposters:

    The 'punk' of the cyberpunk genre refers primarily to its narrative focus on the underclass of such a high tech, politically dysfunctional & socioeconomically heavily stratified society. And regardless of your chosen lifepath, the PC is part of that milieu and acts as the in-setting equivalent to a Shadowrunner.

    Also, although its beyond the point in regards to genre specifics, funny how you say that a setting with rockerboys (among other 'punkish' things such as subculture-oriented gangs) has no punk aesthetics.

    Have you played Dragonfall? Most of that stuff is either not present (surprise, a feminist reading her own agenda into something!) or is extremely subdued. The game is 80% tactical combat with light character-building and some pulpy storytelling on top.

    Idgaf its still there you can say the same thing about soyberpunk it could be just one or two fag characters and you tards are freaking out like everyone is a tranny. Funny how a game so bare bones like shadowrun is so high on the list it looks and plays like a fucking mobile game. I played bootleg russian games that had better and more complex turn based combat than this shit.

    I see we're at the stage where people are assuming they know everything about the game based on released marketing materials and can pronounce sweeping judgements on what it's focused and what it's not focused on.

    I for one think CDPR are hitting just the right tune by going with a story where the player is offered to bring down a corporations-engineered social order.

    At this point you only see what you want to see. Clearly you like what you see and that's totally fine but no... I won't eat the marketing because "rockerboys have punk aesthetics". If we reached a point where we're searching for arguments (for some reason which I don't get) to prove that the game belongs truly to the Cyperpunk genre then I'm sorry but this clearly points out that the game suffers from identity crisis.

    Yeah, and?

    Reminder that everything you see in the game is design, fashion and futurism; the game's identity is drowned by it. Cute attempt though.
