RE: Disappointment of the Year
Cyberpunk 2077 is definitely not the worst game I finished in 2020, but this should have been an easy top 10 game for me, and a potential GOTY.
There is so much right with it, like what Cyberpunk does with world design, story and characters. But there's so much more wrong with it. Such as crashes (I had more than 20 crashes), constant random bugs and many other performance issues. It even crashed during the final credits!
Also this game has some of the worst AI I've seen in recent years and it needs a serious rework. The big crowds look nice but when you interact with anything, you see how broken all of the NPCs are. Even in combat the AI pretty much just waits for me to kill them.
It's a disappointing game for sure, but with more development time and with the proper PS5 version, I hope they can find a way to fix these issues. Because like I said, it does do a lot of things right.
RE: Last game you finished
I skipped Days Gone when it released because of the performance issues. I was pleased that I had no performance issues playing it on PS5 and no crashes, which I really appreciate after recently playing Cyberpunk 2077. The overall gameplay of Days Gone was satisfying, also the story and performances are exceptional. It's definitely a tier bellow games like The Last of Us Part 2 and Read Dead Redemption 2, but it does enough good things that it's more than just a swimmin' in 7's.
RE: Your Pop-Tarts & Toaster Strudels for Q1 2021
@axel Bravely Default 2 is also my Toaster Strudel for mostly the same reasons you mentioned. The first Bravely Default was okay but I didn't even care enough to finish it. I really want more Octopath Traveler from Square Enix and the Bravely series doesn't scratch that RPG itch in the same way.
I looked through the early 2021 release schedule and I don't see many Pop-Tart candidates. One game that I'm confident will be good is Hitman 3 so that's my Pop-Tart. I like that it's not episodic anymore and I'm excited to see how it plays on PS5. Faster loading, better performance and DualSense optimization could make playing Hitman 3 feel like a new experience, even if overall it's not much different from the previous games in the series.
