Oh wow, you guys.
Here I was whining about the wait and you two have actual arguments towards or investments with the project.

If it's as long as The Witcher 3, it'll probably take me year to complete it.
I am really appreciating the replayability of the story in that regard. (It's all promises, of course, but the gameplay feedback from people gives me some hope.)
It seems that every time you start anew you can alter your entire game trajectory just by picking a different background and making a few different choices along the way.
Not even talking endings here but just the seemingly serious ways in which each quest can be affected through dialogue choices and quest solutions. (And then, how these decisions in one quest affect entire sections of another!) The size of the game might not be as massive as some people expect, but the depth-...!
By the way, very clever of you to invest, @Merode
. I bet you already saw your holdings double since 2019!

So while I am quite sure there will be alot of features I will love and find intresting as a big fan of the cyberpunk genre, I am sceptical it will be a smooth gaming experience, as they are so ambitious with the features.
Even though I tried to channel my hype fan into this post, I completely agree with you on your assessment of the game as an all-rounded project vs. its effect on the gaming industry.
We can already see some features being slowly rolled back (nothing too major, though), mixed comparisons of the game to GTA V (especially in the context of the community being upset with Rockstar currently), people grumbling about vehicle driving and melee combat in the current gameplay demos, arguments about the game's FPP never fully died out...
Of course, it comes with just about any game. Cyberpunk 2077 just happens to be one of those passion projects that was around for 7+ years and worked hard to maintain the hype with ambitious promises along the way.
Very solid points on its effects on the community in general. It's already visible with people organizing a kind of a culture around this game and laughing at the newest feature of taser-cyber-nipples in the upcoming lore book. I know that some of the TTRPG players who were fans of Cyberpunk tabletop for many years now appreciate the attention to the lore and then the new edition of the game coming out as Cyberpunk RED.
It's pretty cool.
