I'm pretty sure I find 90+ games (especially when it gets to like 95+) to be some of the worst games honestly. Of course, the presentation and graphics are usually top-notch, but they're usually the least fun games for me and very lacking in sound (not audio obviously) game design.Look if it's over 80 on Metacritic sooner or later I will buy it, and if it's over 70 on Metacritic but lower than 80, I will buy it when it's less than 20 dollars. Who only buys games when it's 90+ on Metacritic.
"It took 900 years but it's totally worth it! I even got to inherit the spaceships my great-great-great-great-great grandfather bought back in 2015."I honestly believe that when Star Citizen comes out, it'll be the year 2945 and our long-distant descendants will be playing it in their spaceships.
For one I think Witcher 2 was much better than you are giving it credit for right here. I guess it was rough around the edges in some regards but considering when it came out, it was mostly stuff like Skyrim or Dragon Age it was being compared to, it stood out as a very good and engaging RPG. Probably the best of the generation next to New Vegas, which was fantastic but notoriously lacked polish."It took 900 years but it's totally worth it! I even got to inherit the spaceships my great-great-great-great-great grandfather bought back in 2015."
But to go back to the original point, it is kinda wierd Cyberpunk is so hyped pretty much entirely because of Witcher 3(and maybe Gwent? Is Gwent really well thought of?). The first Witcher was really mediocre(and even to this day I tell people to just skip it unless they really, really, really want to play the entire series), the second was good but flawed and the third was legitimately great. But that's a track record of 1 mediocre game, 1 good game and 1 great game which doesn't seem to jive too much with the sheer hype over cyberpunk 2077.
Unless people really liked Gwent IRL.
It's not about the delay, and if that really is the reason, there's nothing wrong with it. But if a company delays a game, three weeks before supposed release, after having announced it had gone gold weeks earlier, after confirming on their official account that the date would be final literally a day before,after going all out on marketing, at a time that surely will cut into their Christmas sales and put their integrity into question... well, it sure has some uncomfortable implications for the actual game, doesn't it? Again, maybe I'm wrong. Maybe it really is just about minor performance issues on last gen consoles and additional Q&A. Maybe the game is gonna come out in time and in a perfectly polished state. I just doubt it at this point.Is delaying a game because you want it to be better really that much of a crime?
