It Just Wasn’t the Game We Were Promised
“The real problem is how the marketing was pushing all elements at once, therefore creating unrealistic expectations,” says u/sicariusv. “For my part, I was initially disappointed because of this discrepancy between what was promised and delivered, but once I accepted what the game was, I had a much better time with it. I still have gripes with it, I don’t think the story is executed well and the endings are not great.” CD Projekt Red promised something that never was fulfilled. When people were told the game would be open world, the expectations were high, but never met. It seems like many players simply settled for what was given rather than hope for something different.
