You forgot to add "When they release a patch that enables disabling of nudity/sex and severe language" option. Another words, when they add the consumer friendly option to allow people to enjoy art the way they wish.

Movies have TV versions that are family friendly. Music has radio versions. Why can't video games have family friendly versions?

Sorry for the DP but that will never happen. It's a Cyberpunk setting. You don't have cyberpunk without sex, nudity, and swearing. Cyberpunk is a setting in a downfall of society that is more crass and degenerate. That's the entire point. It would make as much sense for a game like Dark Souls to remove the gore and violence.

Battle for NY/LA didn't have sex in them, nor did a ton of other dystopian 80's future films. Have we degenerated so far as humans that we can't come up with good stories to tell that don't involve sex?

And again, any inappropriate film has versions for TV that don't show that stuff, as do songs, so why can't games? I watched Game of Thrones on VidAngel, which can block all sex, profanity, intense graphic violence. I still understood and enjoyed the story.

Buying day infinite, as in most likely won't. I have lost faith in this game and the developer.

I was going to wait for a next gen version anyway. Cyberpunk setting should be very pretty in HDR. However the game play doesn't look all that good and CDPR has burned their bridges. First by delaying not long enough so everyone had to scramble and cancel their summer holiday plans, after already working very hard to meet the original deadline. And now they tack some more mandatory overtime on top.

From a no crunch promise to mishandling the project leading to over a year of crunch. I don't believe for one second there was no crunch until now, it typically starts many months before the original release date and keeps going for day one patch and DLC. And in the case of Cyberpunk, they still have to work on next gen and multiplayer once the single player is out the door.



Buying at launch on PC. Whenever next-gen upgrades come isn't all that important to me.



Considering how long it's taking to make, and all of the delays to add stuff and platforms, I'm worried this is going to go south. Last time I saw a game get so many delays was Mighty Number 9.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

Will buy it when the ultimate version costs less than 40€.

Employees working extra hours/days for a few months is going to make you skip out on a fantastic game?  Not supporting the game gets those same employees laid off from future titles. 

Your post is a false narrative.

How so, no profits equals no company/layoffs?  If kids want all their Christmas presents, UPS/Fed Ex drivers have to work 60-80 hour work weeks during December to get all packages delivered.  Don't like it, don't buy anything online.  If a company's need taxes submitted on time, CPA's need to put in extra hours to get them submitted.  If a salesperson is having an excellent month closing sales and needs to work extra hours to get everything closed it needs to happen.  In an ideal world everything can be doe in a timely manor...but it doesn't work that way.

Cyberpunk was literally invented by Blade Runner and the sole purpose was a social commentary on low life-high tech. It's the entire point. Why don't we just flip the script? I should ask Mario to have decapitations and sex and swearing. Don't go into a Friday the 13th film and complain about the sex and blood. There is plenty of stuff out there family-friendly. Ratings exist for a reason and that reason is not you trying to change it to fit what you want. It's there to let you know IF it is for you.

So what are people like me, who enjoy 80's dystopian future stories, supposed to do? Do we never get to enjoy AAA cyberpunk games? Do these developers not realize they are losing sales by not enabling toggle options? I'm not asking them to remove that stuff for people that want it, just for those of us that don't to have the option.

Many cyberpunk games out there.  Dude, the genre and game are literally in the title. CyberPUNK. It's literally right there. Cyberpunk is a sub-genre of sci-fi. Not all sci-fi is in the same sub-genre. Cyberpunk is a very specific one. Star Trek and Blade runner technically both Sci-Fi but nothing alike. It's like complaining about a horror game or horror film is horrific. It's literally in the title.  Can't be any clearer than this. They are not losing any sales. Nothing that will make any impact. This is like the people complaining of Dark Souls is hard. Yeah, it's supposed to be. Your only option is to deal with it and find something else to play. It's not changing. Don't know what 80s movies you watch but a vast majority of them ESP if dealing in a dystopian future is full of sex and swearing. I have watched hundreds of them myself.  The 80s were peak gore, sex, and swearing in film. With that, there is nothing more to be said. You will either accept it and make it easier on yourself or not. Sorry.

I get the lotions, but sometimes we have to step back and understand that there is source material from this and the founder of the cyberpunk board game has been involved too. 

This is not our vision or the vision of reviewers etc, this is an adaptation of a boardgames that has books and huge amounts of lore, and it is this vision that is being brought to life. 

It's like asking for two types of Game of Thrones, one fully censored. It's like saying the story they need to tell about how messed up the future is in this world should be removed or ignored. Its like asking marvel to remove any form of religion from as they find religion offensive. Or asking Mario to exchange the princess or switch characters as they find it sexist the princess cannot defend herself and a chubby plumber has to do it.

I don't condone sexual themes, or alcohol, drugs, violence, but ultimately, this is not my story or my vision. This is the uncompromised vision from the cyberpunk universe that highlights societies issues, many of which reflect reality and it should make us question how bad things have got. 

To remove them would be a disservice to the source material and like many cultures out there, a case of brushing these issues under the carpet.
