21 Dec Will Cyberpunk 2077 be the best game of 2020 or the best game of the decade?
The upcoming RPG Cyberpunk 2077 is being hyped as not only the best game of 2020, but some critics are already calling it the best game of the decade.
Is the hype surrounding the game warranted, and will Cyberpunk 2077 be ultimately named the best game of 2020?
Cyberpunk 2077 has not yet been released — While it is impossible to say if either of these terms will be applied to Cyberpunk 2077 after its release, with several trailers and previews having already seen the light of day, it definitely looks promising.
After all, as both critics and fans are pointing out after watching previews of the game, the level of attention to detail in Cyberpunk 2077 is something few games have featured previously.
When you also include the exciting gameplay, the open world and the enormous customization options, it does seem possible Cyberpunk 2077 could be the game people are talking about for years to come.
Developed by CD Projekt Red — The Polish game developer CD Projekt Red is known for its RPG game series The Witcher.
That series of games is on the lists of many gamers as the best RPGs ever created. This is why critics expect Cyberpunk 2077 to not only be as good as The Witcher but, considering it has been in development for eight years, probably even better.
CD Projekt Red also has a superb reputation among gamers as they are also the owners of the DRM-free games website GOG.com. That site has been known for years as being one of the few game distribution platforms that cares about its customers, and does everything it can to ensure they are happy with the games they buy.
The cyberpunk setting — There are few games on the market that have a cyberpunk setting, which is why Cyberpunk 2077 is causing such excitement.
When you also consider the attention to detail Cyberpunk 2077 has received, and that the world it takes place in is unlike anything else in a computer game, this is a huge selling point for it to be named the best game of 2020.
The teaser trailers and previews — In the last few years, CD Projekt Red has released several Cyberpunk 2077 teaser trailers and previews.
All of them show an intricately detailed game, with weaponry, boss fights, animation, artwork and game mechanics that are beyond what is currently available in games.
Unless the game itself differs markedly from what has already been previewed, it seems apparent that Cyberpunk 2077 will give every other game released in 2020 a benchmark to beat that could be almost impossible.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on April 16th, 2020. You can buy Cyberpunk 2077 PS4, Xbox or PC. It is only then we will know if the game is truly as good as its hype.
