'Cyberpunk 2077 is having difficulties withstanding the hype and is falling short of expectations.' Whose expectations? Maybe your expectations but it's not falling short for many, many other people. Don't write and present a personal opinion as a factual headline. It's better English and more professional if you wrote that Cyberpunk 2077 'is falling short of MY expectations.' Remember that next time you put a headline on a below-average rant.

Full agreement, the arguments in the article are weak. I wonder if Epic is behind this attack?:

This is the definition of clickbait! And it’s working.

Even if it doesn't end up being spectacular, I cannot see this game being less than great, so I'm not really worried.

to everyone putting this game on a pedestal it will be less than great. Those who over hype are always disappointed. I'm excited but I find it best to vest little interest in a game and play it for what it is. Hasn't failed me yet.

Hype usually generates disappointment. For me once I see the announcement of a title and see some gameplay, I usually block myself from the game until release.

Sure but hyping things up plays into pre-order culture. It also creates incidents similar to what we saw with Day's Gone, where people hyped the game just enough that when there was a decent number of reviews that disagreed with their expectations, they threw a fit over it.

Personally I'm only expecting the core gameplay to be on the positive side of ok and I'm fine with that. I actually didn't like the combat in TW3 but it's still one of the best games I ever played and Cyberpunk looks a lot sharper in terms of gameplay.

I will be disappointed if the overall story, characters, quests, writing and acting are below par but we know little about these things in the context of the game as a whole.

The writing in CDPR games is always top notch. Witcher 3 had better side quests than any game I've ever played. I'm sure Cyberpunk will be no different.

Truly. Most of the side quests, I wasn't doing it for gear or experience, I just wanted to know what was going to happen. Very rare with open world games. For instance, the werewolf quest.
