Gibson, the cyberpunk pioneer, wrote that CP2077 trailer looks like a retro-future GTA

Comment from Serge Ulankin
Here's the tweet by William Gibson, who is known for pioneering cyberpunk in literature. It reads: "The trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 strikes me as GTA skinned-over with a generic 80s retro-future, but hey, that's just me." 

Mike Pondsmith, the creator of the Cyberpunk tabletop game (which is CP2077's source-material), who also works on the videogame's storyline, already responded: "For those who wish it was more rainy and dark and stuff: Five words: Day/night Cycle Weather Algorithms ANYONE can make it dark and rainy and neony. We already knew we could do that. We wanted to prove that it can be the Dark Future ANY TIME OF DAY OR NIGHT."

well, if it's "skinned-over GTA" with plot as good as Witcher series and gameplay as godly as Witcher 3 - I'm all in on this "GTA clone"

I was really not expecting to like this game as much as I did. From the first major mission setting up the main storyline I was on board and everything after was just a great ride. There were a lot of great side missions with a good handful of some fun detective work in a few. There are great companion characters that you will grow to love. Judy is one of my favorite game characters now with her awesome story arc and great VO performance. Speaking of VO, female V was incredible. That actor gave an incredible performance and nailed all the emotion she needed to convey in her scenes. Gameplay is fun but nothing special. It's very fun to just dice people up with mantis blades. I know this game had a hell of a rocky start but after the patch I encountered almost no bugs or crashes and just enjoyed the story and the world as I think they intended. I really hope others had as good of a time as I did with it.
Cyberpunk 2077 portrays a hyper-capitalist future where megacorporations have beyond the capacity of governments to control them, creating a dystopian world. Everything is for sale; nothing is protected. Dedication to this environment is what makes Cyberpunk a wonderful success story.
CDPR having released Cyberpunk2077 gave us such a new concept as "late early access".
This game would have ended up a much better experience with more time in the oven. As it stands, it's buggy, overly-large, and uncompelling. However, I'm confident that Projekt RED will continue working on this game until it is in a relatively decent state.

Also, this game isn't going to be that great unless you have an extremely powerful computer or a next gen console. Even then, there's a lot of work for the devs to do.

Cyber-retro views, a very stylish visuals, neon lights - Cyberpunk looks just like I expected. Hope they will reveal the launch date soon.
Share your thoughts about this new project by CD Projekt Red! Can they make a game better than The Witcher 3?

For me Cyberpunk is something completely new and it's not very fair to compare it to The Witcher. It's a such anticipated game that it'd be easy to get disappointed - Cyberpunk is over-hyped right now. But I'm sure - and the trailer proves it - CDPR can create a masterpiece.
