Cyberpunk 2077 gained a lot of attention at the 2019 E3 Event in June. Most of the hype came from the fact that the game got Keanu Reeves on stage to present the game to the fans, having celebrities like this is a great way to promote a new game, but that is not the only reason why people are excited about Cyberpunk 2077. In this article, I am going to give you 3 other reasons why you should be hyped for Cyberpunk 2077 along with everyone else.
Reason number 1: The Narrative. Everyone is tired of playing games where the choices are made for them, they want to have free will and they want to be able to choose what happens next. This is why games from TellTale, or games like Detroit Become Human, were so successful, the audience got to choose the path that they wanted to take and they had free will to do whatever they wanted. Cyberpunk 2077 realizes that fans want the ability to choose their own narrative, so they are giving us that. Every choice you make in this game is going to affect your story, so make the right choices.
Reason number 2: You pick the backstory. Again, people like to decide what happens in a game. In Cyberpunk 2077, you will be able to pick a few different paths when creating a backstory. The backstory is important because it will have an effect on your in-game experience and interactions with other characters. The developers are letting you choose parts of your backstory to keep you interested in the game, letting you create your own personality for this character that you are controlling. This will give you a one of a kind experience, and that is something to look forward to. This is something we don’t see a lot of in older games, so it will be interesting to see how it turns out.
Reason number 3: The game is actually inspired by a tabletop RPG titled Cyberpunk 2020. While Cyberpunk 2020 might not have predicted the future exactly right, Cyberpunk 2077 took those ideas and gave them to us in a game. They are allowing us to live in a world where technology can give us abilities, where we can change out pieces to gain access to new information. Cyberpunk 2077 takes every experience you can get out of the tabletop RPG and multiplies it.
Cyberpunk 2077 is not yet released according to the guys from cdkeysforgames.com, but I can already tell that it is going to launch us into the next stage of gaming by giving us a world that we can control, giving us characters that we can interact and bond with, and giving us Keanu Reeves as a sidekick.
