Honestly after finishing it with a non 100% playthrough.
The bugs i encountered albeit "immersion" breaking honestly have the game a hefty dose of a whimsy and comedy it lacked greatly.
I honestly think if they patched all the bugs out it would be left as an empty, dull, and morose to the point of angsty teen emo whining.
Seriously, everyone, even the 'old guard' characters dress like what I would describe as "neon goth" and with maturity of under 20 something
Yeah we get it, capitalism have turned evil and we have all just allowed it to happen.
(And I agree it has in reality)
Honestly if they fix the game it will only be more boring, with a huge pile of features and mechanics nobody ends up needing.
The entire crafting mechanic for example is entirely superfluous.
Why would I spend expensive items to upgrade an old gun when the thug I just killed dropped something much better?
I agree on the game being largely humourless and the crafting system is retarded. Also yes, the bugs if anything are endearing not unlike a flying horse in Skyrim or Roach spawning ontop of a roof in Witcher 3. That stuff grants levity to an otherwise soul-crushing future dystopia. Although to their credit, if I was the lead writer I don't know how much I'd want to interject too much comedy, or fall into the trappings of a "comic relief" character just to tick a box. To me I'd rather have V partake in more debaucherous activities, considering the city is teeming with sex and drugs on every corner, it seems like its just a part of life in Night City, but as a player we never really get to enjoy any of it, we only see the seedy underbelly, leaving the fun stuff as a lush backdrop to write interesting narrative over.
