CD Projekt RED Quest Designer Patrick Mills talks to DualShockers about Cyberpunk 2077's Night City, gameplay, inspiration, and more.
Am I the only one MORE hyped for this over RDR 2?
You are not alone.
RDR 2 will offer therapeutic retreat when the player finds isolation in the deep woods. Similar to when the Witcher would find tranquility by a waterfall in Skellige. Cyberpunk is different cracked out amazing action not meant to offer such deep therapeutic "natural" relaxation.
I didn't find RDR relaxing. Action and story were awesome, but everything inbetween was a bore-fest. RDR had the most boring open world I've ever seen (regarding landscape, NPCs were top-notch). When I'm bored, I'm not fully absorbed in the game world and do not experience what you described as "therapeutic relaxation". Open world games I find relaxing are Breath of the Wild, Witcher 3, Mass Effect (1-4), GTA 5, Shadow of the Colossus, etc. Not sure whether I will get some relaxation out of Cyberpunk, but to be honest that is not the main point of playing video games for me.
Both games are very far apart so the hype comparison does not make sense. RDR 2 is now you can play the heck out of it in a few days, but CyberPunk is like years away probably next gen even.
@Tiqila You're right it was just wishful thinking on my part regarding how RDR2 will be.
It is an exciting time as gamers when we can play and will be able to play great games such as RDR2, Last of Us Part 2, Smash, and this one. Hope we’ll hear something about the release date soon.
