My biggest issue with Cyberpunk 2077

As much as I've enjoyed playing Cyberpunk, it has one big glaring issue. No it's not the bugs and glitches, that's a whole separate topic. No, it's the distinct lack of, well Cyberpunk.

What I mean to say, is that when someone says "cyberpunk" the first thing that comes to mind (for me at-least) is cybernetic prosthetic's and blurring the line between man and machine. and there's a major lack of it, at-least on the player side. Sure the npcs can be seen with various prosthetic's, but I don't care about them. I care about my character, and my character just isn't cyberpunk. Outside of the "cyberwear" (which are incredibly minor and limited to your face) option in the character creator, there's no option to make your character look augmented. Even the implant upgrades don't change your appearance. Sure the arm upgrades add some small details to your arms and hands, but if you stop and take a closer look, they're just overplayed on your character. Your arm doesn't look like it's a prosthetic that's concealing a weapon.
If i'm playing in a "cyberpunk" world, I want to be able to augment my character with implants that visibly change my appearance, and you won't let me do that.


That is what I expected but instead what I got is this

That's supposed to be a mantis blade arm. I would have another image of the blades out, but you can't take a photo of them out in the photomode.
That's easily one of my biggest disappointments with the game.
I still think it's good, and I've enjoyed playing it, but so many disappointments.

Sidenote: The longer I play, the more content feels missing. Most notably, the beginning questline feels likes it's supposed to branch, but It never does. And your lifepath has ultimately no real effect on the game.
Still enjoying it though.

Honestly, l love Deus Ex. At least the modern ones, never played the originals. The fact that the series has been essentially shelved because of poor sales is a tragedy and the fact we got Marvels Avengers is an even bigger tragedy

I hate the later/modern Deus Ex games. They're not fit to inhabit the same game universe as The Original.

About Cyberpunk 2077.. Not interested.

He's talking mainly about the vastly reduced in quality that was the first sequel, Invisible War. It was made to cater to Xbox players mainly so things like the inventory were simplified into a wheel that would be easy to use with controls, the inventory overall was reduced. The explorable areas were reduced into much smaller areas interconnected by a lot of loading screens so it would be easier for the Xbox to handle it, the port for the PC was a disaster with frequent crashes each time you tried to load to a new area, and some people simply could not get it to even launch. I personally could never finish it, the game was broken, it would simply not stop crashing after going to a new area and the frame rate was bad since it was a poor port with bad optimization that kept trying to use the Xbox settings.

I personally enjoyed Human Revolution a lot though, its a great game imo if a bit different from the original one. Mankind Divided as a sequel to HR is ok but it was sort of a downgrade overall.

Make sure to keep the original Human Revolution if you have it as there are issues in the Director's Cut that aren't in the original.

I have Director's Cut as a matter of fact, but I've never had any issues? I've read about people complaining about them though, it's just that I never had problems with the version.
