Bigger is better, but only in the right places (Gaming)

Cyberpunk is actually my first RPG open world game.

Terrible choice to start with this game. It's systems are half-baked across the board.

Contrast this with Cyberpunk. No sidequests are discovered organically. They all spring from a phone call, and they are all tracked. A waypoint and a dotted line appear telling you where to go. So for all the supposed freedom an open world gives you, you never use that freedom to discover sidequests or things to do on your own. You're always following directions, and ticking off the side jobs. Some of them are quite good and affecting… but how much better would they be if you stumbled into them on your own? Through your curiosity?

To be fair, most of the calls you receive are triggered by stumbling onto the job's location.
