It has nothing to do with expectations, if you give the game an honest look you will see that it's nothing but a pretty shell that is hollow. Sure the city is big and looks good (when the damn textures decide to load), but there is NOTHING to do, you can't talk to most random npcs or interact with them, sit down in a shop and buy something or enter most buildings ( just the vending machines ). This isn't a bad launch, there are fundamental problems with the game. Oh and by the way, in my opinion them admitting that they "Didn't show the game in last gen consoles enough to make a more informed decision" is nothing but dishonest, nothing changed in a couple of days they just had to release it in time for the holidaysI think people had unrealistic expectations when it comes to this open world of Cyberpunk itself, it's not and wasn't supposed to be RDR2 or GTA V open world like game, but more like TES/Fallout and The Witcher 3. City feels extremely dense, it's very atmospheric and you can lose yourself in it however it is still a stage for quests, leveling up, looting, trying to look for stuff to hack and looking for a fight - yes you need to look for a fight here, it doesn't come to you easily, there are no monsters or wild animals attacking you. It's a great game honestly, just failed launch with old gen and they've admitted that today. Only good thing is that everyone who bought it on previous generation will get proper next gen update.
