Good. More stupid decision like only ”first person view ” and this trash company become another bioware.

MoshA87d ago

Thank God for only first person. Don't need another buggy ass 3rd person casual garbage and wasted money on animating everything twice. Hope they do more things to piss people like you off.

Gwiz87d ago

You really think that Bioware went downwards based on 1st/3rd person views?

arkard87d ago

If you can only enjoy games in first person I feel sorry for you.

I feel sorry for you feeling sorry for people who only enjoy games in first person view.

Trash company? you should reserve such insults to the likes of EA and Activision..CD Projekt are as consumer friendly as it will ever get.

Gwiz87d ago

Especially these days.

pietro121287d ago

Because of the 1st view they're now the new Bioware.. That is the dumbest thing you could possibly say about CD Project Red. They're one of the best rpg devs this generation. Also the 1st person view doesn't make or break the game.

Scatpants87d ago

Yeah what a trash company making all those stupid utterly fantastic games.

King_Noctis87d ago

Yikes...some people on this site.

annoyedgamer87d ago

Bioware crashed because of EA.

Wrex36987d ago

What even is this comment lmao

CrimsonWing6987d ago

They became incompetent because they decided on first person perspective to really immerse the player into the world of cyberpunk?

Y’know, I wanted third person when I heard they said it was first person at first, but after seeing the gameplay demo I don’t know how you can still complain about it being first person. I’m actually grateful it’s first person now.

This reminds me of how there’s that small group of complainers that wished Resident Evil 2 REmake had fixed camera angles.

bluefox75587d ago

I think I'd prefer third person, but CDPR have yet to let me down, so I see no harm in giving them the benefit of the doubt.

Release a physical PC version with disk, map, manual, goodies and no drm and you got a sale.

MeteorPanda87d ago

sorry why do you need a manual? it's such an outdated piece of paper no one used but for somereason a lot of gamers bring it up like we actually used it...
