Very much torn


I no­ticed that in the Cy­ber­punk 2077 footage, CD Pro­jekt Red say that first-per­son per­spec­tive is more im­mer­sive. I couldn’t dis­agree more. It takes me out of the story and the game. I’m torn be­tween ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a great story and the dis­ori­en­ta­tion of be­ing stuck in a first-per­son view. It’s not the best form of sto­ry­telling, and I be­lieve this is a con­scious choice by CDPR that has more to do with not hav­ing to put in the work to an­i­mate a third-per­son char­ac­ter. John War­rick Phil: To sug­gest it’s so CDPR don’t have to an­i­mate a char­ac­ter is a stretch. The team is al­ready an­i­mat­ing hun­dreds of char­ac­ters through­out the city, and also have to cre­ate de­tailed first-per­son an­i­ma­tions, too.
