The only game I've played that I thought was too buggy to be playable was fallout:new vegas on Xbox 360, It is also the first and only game I've ever taken back to the shop to request a refund for (what was granted too)

It was just unplayable and everything kept glitching through the wall, and it really frustrated me.

I recently tried to replay fallout 4 (a game released in 2015) and it was still more bugged than my experience with cyberpunk at launch on pc...

People have selective\short memory if they think that cyberpunk was a one case only.
This game pissed me right off. Got really far into it on the series X but then whenever I went to the east side of the map it locked up, it happend on every save too so the whole game was knackered

Never played it since. Piece of time wasting shit!

Are we talking cyberpunk or fallout 4?!

Jokes aside, I played the game at launch on my Series X and had a fairly good time.

Yes, it was full of bugs (probably more than any other game I've ever played) but a fair amount of the story missions and side content was enjoyable enough.

Mind you, I didn't have extremely high expectations to begin so all the shortcomings didn't really bother me at all.

looks about the same as when I played it on Stadia at launch last year 🤷‍♀️

That's because it mostly is. They've been spending a lot [and I do mean a LOT] of time on bugfixes, most specifically quest-related. It's astonishing how many quests were bugged at launch.

There barely have been any quality of life improvements.

I still have high hopes that this game will play great when the new-gen versions release and they translate the fixes and optimizations to the PC.
I think the game runs pretty good on PC. So far the biggest problem i have with it in terms of visuals/performance is that the draw distance is too low, pop-ins are really noticeable when you're driving.

This game has the top spot for Biggest Shitshows in Gaming for me, followed by Arkham Knight on PC and AC Unity. The thing is, these two games seem completely fine when compared to CP2077.

Gotta congratulate CDPR for their effort, had countless bugs, some which meant losing 2 or 3 hours of progress, not to mention the incredible number of 60 crashes across 40h of playtime on the PS5 version.
 
Sounds like you just want to play a different game. Also who decides whether they'll play a game or not on being able to change the colour of their gun? Who really cares?
I played this game and gave it a chance on PC too. Might be a foreign concept to you but there's some gamers out there who enjoy customisation in open world games. Changing color of your gun? There's more to weapon customization than just changing the fucking color lol

Who cares about customization in an RPG, right? Why would you ever want to change the appearance of the character you play as for 40 to 100 hours? Archaic game design, is what it is.

Who ever said "more options = better" is a moron. Troglodytes, the lot of them.

Sometimes it feels like I'm the only one who really enjoyed Cyberpunk. Then again I played on PC and kept my hype significantly low.
Thats where most people fail in my eyes. Starts with hype, and maintains the hype. I always keep my bar low. Low as possible..everything after that is either a bonus or 'i fuckin knew it' 😅

I enjoyed it enough to chug through it on a ps4 pro. Will definitely do at least one more playthrough when/if they ever release a native ps5 version.

Guess I lucked out when it came to crashes/bugs. Only had one actual crash, and one bug where a key item spawned inside level geometry and I had to redo the mission.
Performance was definitely a shitshow, but it was perfectly playable.

they probably decided to put all their eggs on the next gen ports and try to wow people with that...you would think that the improvements will also come to the pc version, but don't know if we can trust this "new" cd project

GerAlt-Right. Ciriously.
It's still shit. I turned it on and it has very annoying character pop-in that happens like 5 feet away from my character. Until that goes away I will not consider the game to be "fixed"

So tired of the conquest against this game. Bought the ps4 version day 1, decided to wait for the nextgen patch and I couldn’t care less about the hyperbolic bitching and can’t wait for it to be released

I've been watching a few videos about this game over the last few days.....I had no idea how bad it was....it seems it's hardly an rpg either.

I consider last gen versions a lost cause. Looking forward to trying this game once next gen launches. Hoping I made the right call on BF getting it early and cheap.

Hardly. Other than a spike in November (I'm guessing maybe a sale or something) CP2077 almost consistently has 10-20K players at any time. I have been tempted to reinstall to continue my STREET KID second playthrough on PC, though I am waiting to do that with a nextgen patch on the PS5.

. . .if the last gen versions of the game did not exist, we'd not the beating of this pile of goo that used to be a horse every few weeks or so.

Really? I played fallout 4 two years ago and I don’t even remember any bug.

You and me both! Easily one of the most enjoyable games I've played in like 5-10 years. I've encountered like two bugs and one crash. Sure, there's room for improvement but I think it's an amazing game on PC. At least 9/10 for me, such a great experience.

I played for like 4 hours and i had one npc (the guy who try to hack the computer in the church when you save their asses) having his subs text stuck on one line, the dog blocked in a place and i had to re-load the save to unlock him, an enemy stuck underground ( i mean half of his body was stuck) and the general jankiness during combat\interactions with npcs that any bethesda rpg has.

People to this day still say that you need some mods to make the game a good experience, i tried with the vanilla version and fastely regretted.
