    Because if you play an immersive sim and fire a single round, you're doing it wrong. Just go stealth+netrunner bro. Mediocre combat is a great way to filter run'n'gun plebs.

    If it's possible to stealth your way through the game, I might get this somewhere down the line. I can't stand shooters, no matter how good the gameplay is, or how atmospheric or brilliantly written they are. But a cyberpunk stealth game? Sign me up.

    I hated the Ciri segments and I don't understand at all why some people want a Witcher sequel with her as protag.

    Ah, memories. When I first played Deus Ex back in the day, my Riva Vanta couldn't cut the framerates for proper FPS combat so it was either play stealth or not at all.

    That said, let's not get ahead of ourselves with the "immersive sim" epithets. I'm still reasonably optimistic for this thing, but I'd be positively shocked if they pulled off an open-world Deus Ex.

    Well well, so even the philistines have jumped on the hype train :positive:

    :hype:


    The very game is a rollercoaster, but imagine the motion blur!

    This game will be Game Of The Decade

    :bunkertime:

    I'm surprised he didn't want content warnings as well.

    And, guess who was almost cast as Spike in a live action adaptation :D

    Man! You wankers are hyped about this corporate game, while simultaneously dissing every other corporate game. -_-

    I'm mostly sure atleast the gameplay department is gonna be shit, but yea, glorified movies where you can walk around is what the crowd demands and that's what they'll get.

    Edit: Seems the director and writer are dudes who worked on Witcher 1 & 2, not Witcher 3. I do have some hope now afterall..

    I don't know how they can honestly market this as a spiritual successor to Deus Ex. Everything about it looks identical to a GTA/Saints Row game.

    Now I am interested. I have no desire to play the average FPS combat, but something more deliberate (closer to a sim) is up my alley. I need to check the latest gameplay to see how it was changed.

    It is very cool in that sense. Aggravating that the character stat/inv/equ screens have been shown the least in every demo vid they've pushed out. Nevertheless, my hype has gone up a little bit.

    I find this reddit thread relevant and wish people would have to sign such a form before p(l)aying.

    Lol at people who expect to be able to finish CP77 only with stealth and hacking, no shooting.

    I'm more worried of people who expect to be able to finish CP77 only with shooting. You know they do exist.

    Life is so boring when you are intelligent. I was saying it's going to be good from the start, and it is.

    Meanwhile, the cyberpunk aestethic connoiseurs and the npc density experts maintained that:

    "The game isn't dark enough"

    "It's a shooter, not an RPG. OMG, here is a screenshot of their twitter where it says action adventure game, I got mad analytical skills!!"

    "Herp-derp, streets are not crowded"

    "The music is something-or-another, not cyberpunk, sci-fi African American simulator"

    Refuted on all accounts.

    Big surprise, CDPR know how to make games better than the "experts" commenting from the sidelines.

    I still imagine it will be quite a buggy mess at release, but it will get there.

    Yeah, it'll be tough for them only using the most effective tactic in every situation.

    What you describe is a stealth game (see Thief), not an immersive sim as one of their core elements is to allow multiple ways to approach problems and mixing approaches (remember Spector's talk about how Deus Ex isn't as good as Thief at being a stealth game nor as good as Quake at being a shooter game, but what makes it special is allowing you to do both). A proper immersive sim allows for the run&gun and the stealth approaches as viable solutions (preferably among others too).

    (though as a sidenote i remember an interview where -IIRC- Pawel Sasko said that CP2077 isn't an immersive sim)

    If you're a fan of level scaled visual movies with popamole combat, then yes.

    I'm a fan of that too. Mostly a fan of knowing what to expect from a game and hence being able to enjoy it.

    I do have over 300 hours in Underrail.

    How the RPG mechanic impacts the other gameplay mechanics (including gunplay) is an important consideration for me.
