Non-ironically, Cyberpunk 2077 (Gaming)

But only because I arbitrarily decided Horizon Zero Dawn doesn't make the cut since I only made it out of Mother's Embrace yesterday.

With Cyberpunk, not only did I get blessed with a near-glitchless experience, my expectations of the gameplay loop weren't that high, so I didn't feel cheated*. I find the writing of the side quests and gigs superb and the sheer scale of everything so good.

*Not to invalidate the feelings of those who did. Marketing did blow everything out of proportion, it's just that I never really believed them. Got burned too hard too many times at this point.

There's a solid game under the mess. I didn't have a glitchless experience and there were systems in the game that weren't just overblown in marketing but non-functional with the only frame of reference being a host of previously played games.

It's a game I'm sure I'll greatly enjoy a couple of years from now. You know, when it's done.
