Cyberpunk 2077, a game with one of the worst premieres in modern times, just became a Game of the Year! No, you didn’t wake up in some parallel universe, although... I’m not that sure to be honest.

Let the sarcastic clapping begin!

After huge(-ish) success of DLC for Cyberpunk 2077, linked to a Netflix anime series, CD Projekt Red decided to publish a new version of the game, a version that would include all of the extensions for the title. I could be wrong, but I think this means BOTH extensions for the game, plus the patches. How do they call it? The Game of the Year Edition!

Yes, after two years of struggle with performance issues, more performance issues, bugs, even more bugs and some slight improvements Cyberpunk 2077 is finally a game of the year! Pity they didn’t say which year that would be. Or how they achieved that unbelievable title.

Of course, it’s just a name, often used when complete version of a game is published, it doesn’t really mean anything, but in this case, it stretches the imagination how Cyberpunk 2077 could be called Game of the Year. Perhaps it is CD Projekts Red’s Game of the Year, but certainly not recognized by any respectable publication.

They could have call it the version 1.0, the complete version, etc. but for some reason they went for the GOTY edition, which just shows how detach from reality the company became. They lost any shred of dignity almost two years ago when they published clearly an unfinished game and insisted all of the problems will be fixed by day one patch, but clearly the marketing is still far more important for CDPR than facing the reality.

How Cyberpunk 2077 made history and what you should learn from it

Cyberpunk 2077, new game from CD Projekt Red studio, premiered on 10th December 2020 and, just like rest of the year 2020, it was a painful experience. Although after about 8 years in production developers made history, I don’t think that was the way they wanted to do it.

Another game have cyberpunked

To no-one’s surprise another big title have just completely cyberpunked on the premiere - buggy, under-developed, remade to appeal to everyone. And ended up quickly forgotten. Yes, I mean Saints Row.

CD Projekt RED finally gives up

After almost 2 years of empty promises and pointless roadmaps that never materialized it looks like CD Projekt RED finally gave up on saving the dumpster fire that Cyberpunk 2077 was. I mean they put up another patch.

It is... a... sort-of... news... I guess

CD Projekt Red announced that they work on Witcher 4! And... that’s about it. No, I forgot, we now know the title! And that is really it.

Wargaming is leaving Russia and Belarus, a company behind World of Tanks and World of Warships (also World of Warplanes, but realistically who cares?) is apparently leaving Russia and Belarus.

Learning curve - silent killer of online games

Online games come and go, with introduction of modern technology that allows game clients to use high definition graphics, the lifespan of online games if quite often much shorter than the time is needed to make one. Why? Because of the silent killer called learning curve.
