The year 2020 is going to be an exciting one in video games. With highly anticipated titles like Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Halo: Infinite, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2: The Sequel, there's a lot of pressure to be the best. But we're so confident who will really be the best game of the upcoming year, that we're announcing our Game of the Year 2020 winner early. Congratulations to Cyberpunk 2077!
In development by CD Projekt Red, the people responsible for The Witcher 3, the only good RPG in the last 20 years, Cyberpunk 2077 takes place in a sci-fi future of culture, glamour, and robotics. The open world adventure game will allow players to take in countless edgy and hot takes on modern media through the world while enjoying a variety of gameplay styles. Players can be a mercenary, equipped with cybernetic components to augment their human form; or as an outlaw, who doesn't use augmentation due to the loss of humanity it brings.
When not engaging in a unique and state of the art first person shooter combat system, the player can walk around, listen to NPCs talk about things, or even drive through the city in their Delorean-esque car. Players can be enriched in what we can only assume will be a dense, fleshed out world without all of that forced diversity that games like Battlefield are succumbing to nowadays. In Cyberpunk 2077, all the men are rough, tough, and cool, while all the woman are hot, scantily clad, and white.
Our favorite part of the game, however, is the gripping narrative conflict embedded in the overall story. The player is met with the decision to either accept body augmentation to improve performance, or to deny it, believing that to change your body with unnatural parts will degrade their humanity. And since the game has a male/female/non-binary gender option in character creation, you can't try and claim the game is discriminatory against those with physical disabilities, regardless of what that blue-haired girl on Twitter says.
Besides, CD Projekt Red's last game was so good that we have complete confidence that Cyberpunk 2077 will probably be even better. We can only imagine how many hours we will spend in the world of Cyberpunk doing things like driving around and shooting violent people. Can a game with Keanu Reeves in it be anything other than perfect? We think not.
So congratulations to Cyberpunk 2077 for winning the 2020 Game of the Year Award!
As against pre-orders and deluxe editions as we are, we've already paid for the Mega Special Electro-funk Edition of the game and we can't wait to play it when it releases on April 16, 2020.
Originally, we had Fallout: New Vegas marked as our 2020 Game of the Year award winner, but after Bethesda's career-ending PR nightmare that was Fallout 76, we don't want to give any encouragement to that company. Even if New Vegas itself was a flawless masterpiece of its time.
P.S. This is satire. You know, a joke. Something to consider before writing that angry comment calling me rude names.
