5 thoughts on “My Top 10 Games Of 2020 #1 – Cyberpunk 2077

  1. I haven’t finished it yet but I’m loving it so far. It is definitely one of the buggiest games I’ve ever played though. I can’t count the amount of times it’s crashed, yesterday it crashed 4 times. Not to mention the game breaking bugs I’ve experienced. The AI is also pretty abysmal. Other than that, it’s amazing. The story is gripping, as well as the side quests (when a game makes you care about a vending machine, you know it’s brilliant) and the characters are excellent. I don’t think it’s as good as the Witcher 3, but it’s an amazing game nonetheless.

    I can say for certain it won’t be my 2020 GOTY, but it will likely be in the top 3. My GOTY has to go to Ori and the Will of the Wisps, that game was a flawless masterpiece. I’m still annoyed it got snubbed in game awards despite it being one of the highest rated games of 2020. It got more praise than other nominees. Have you played it?

    1. I still haven’t completed the first Ori and I’m honestly in no rush to. 2020 was a pretty poor year for video games. Will of the Wisps is beautiful, but not a game I’m in a rush to play when I have so many other games I want to play through first.

      Cyberpunk 2077 ran like a dream for me 90% of the time and I can count on one hand how many times I crashed in 100 hours of gameplay. I don’t like Cyberpunk more than Witcher 3, or 2, but I still thought it was a fantastic game that I wouldn’t mind playing through again once the modding tools drop.

      I didn’t watch the Game Awards. It’s a super boring show (like E3) that barely shows the awards being given and is filled with advertisements and other bullshit. Miles Morales shouldn’t have been on the list for GOTY. That should’ve gone to Ori or Final Fantasy 7. I totally agree with you there.

      1. Honestly Will of the Wisps will likely go down as one of my favourites of all time. It improves upon the original in every way, which was already brilliant. I highly recommend it. Music, visuals, story, gameplay, I can’t think of a single fault, it was perfect. I’m guessing you played Cyberpunk on PC then, that’s likely why it ran better. If I had to guess how much it has crashed for me on PS5, it would be around the 30-40 mark in around 40 hours of play. Not to mention the many other countless bugs, it doesn’t run well on console.

        I thought 2020 has been one of the better years for video games actually. Definitely better than the last few years.

        1. I’m glad you like it that much. I shelved the series for Hollow Knight and never looked back. Hollow Knight is a much better game imo and I doubt I’ll ever get around to Will of the Wisp at this point. I played Cyberpunk with a GTX 1080 and averaged 55-60 fps 90% of the time. I’ve also played it on an Xbox One S and outside of a frame rate drops it ran fine. I’m convinced that people just love piling on this game to the point of making up lies about it. I’m not saying the performance issues are a lie. They’re obviously not, but the other stuff definitely is. The 100 hours I played on Cyberpunk were on my PC because that’s where I game at. My consoles are just for show.

          2020 was definitely a bad year for gaming to me. Nothing outside of a few games really gripped me. This is probably the weakest top 10 list I’ve ever done.

        2. I shelved Ori for Hollow Knight and never looked back. It’s the better game and I prefer that visual style over Ori’s. I doubt I’ll ever get around to playing Will of the Wisp, but I’m glad you like it so much. I’m prepping for another run in Bloodstained because I really enjoyed that. I’d rather do that than jump into Ori. Who knows… maybe someday right :-).

          Yes, I played Cyberpunk on PC and I loved almost every moment of it. I’m convinced the Internet has a vendetta against Cyberpunk and “journalist” have even resorted to making up lies about the game to get clicks. That’s off-topic though. It’s like the Pokemon “controversy” to me. Completely overblown and only a small minority out of the millions of people that bought the game are complaining about it. I understand wanting a game to perform well, but I’ve personally seen this game in action on a base Xbox One S and outside of the frame issues it ran fine. I haven’t met a single person (outside of that random asshole at Gamestop today) that hated this game or complained about the last-gen ports. It really sucks that your game is giving you so many issues. Especially on new hardware! I remember the Witcher 3 being a dumpster fire at launch too and they eventually fixed that game.

          2020 was definitely a disappointing year for video games for me. This has to be the weakest top 10 list I’ve ever done lol.
