Note: Sorry this took so long, I had surgery recently and have been recovering, which has cut into my game time.
I was a huge fan of the Witcher 3 so I was anxiously awaiting Cyberpunk 2077. Transhuman is the theme here but that hasn’t stopped people from complaining about the other kind of trans, so I’m gonna review it!
Gender: 4 out of 5: Obviously this is the biggest issue. You can play a man with breasts, a woman with a penis, or one with both. I didn’t give it a full five because there’s really only one trans character in this game (besides you, if you chose, and of course that controversial sign that appears everywhere). So while it was there because the LGBT demanded it, it really isn’t shoved in your face, which I find hilarious, since this is possibly the most trans-friendly AAA game in history, and still it’s not enough for these people.
Sexuality: 3 out of 5: Quite a few gay characters, and you have the choice of sleeping with both male and female characters, though Night City is so full of degenerates that this doesn’t seem out of place.
Race: 2 out of 5: Future cyberpunk city in California so of course there’s going to be a large mixture of races. If this offends you than you’re probably a racist. I did appreciate this games take that “every race has its assholes” though.
Anachronism: 0 of 5: Future dystopia, doesn’t apply.
Overall: 9 out of 20: I can appreciate the designers attempts to appeal to all sorts of players with all sorts of beliefs. Anything offensive can be argued that it offends everyone equally. It takes shots at every group but also shows that every group is capable of goodness.
