Admittedly, CD Projekt Red has been a bit of a trend setter when it comes to Cyberpunk 2077. Not in the way any of us expected, but they were born Apology generator thanks to the numerous "bad news given in black text on a yellow background" posts we saw from the studio before and after the game's release.
CD Projekt Red hasn’t given us an apology image since December 18 last year, so it’s only natural that it’s time to move on and find something else to have fun with. Fortunately, the game's Twitter account has been slowly draining some stats over the past few months under the tag #CyberpunkInNumbers. So far they have flown largely under the radar of Cyberpunk fan critics.

A parody post of Cyberpunk statistics appeared on the game's subreddit yesterday, reducing the car's lack of personalization with an infographic that says "0 million spent on vehicle and truck customization." A handful of redditors have continued with various shitty sites over the last few hours and, admittedly, are quite funny.
Most posts seem to be making complaints about the game in a cheerful way, like the one that proclaims that players have changed the appearance of their bodies a total of zero times, a stab at the fact that, for some strange reason, you can’t take V to quickly cut or shave your beard. Even Geralt was able to find a razor from time to time.
Another popular parody points to the fact that you can’t fire a weapon from your uncustomizable car. While it is rare for the ability to shoot from the car to appear in the game, it only gets used to a handful of missions.
My personal favorites are those who regret the fact that we never get a usable subway system, or the 7.3 million Houdini-level police who loves to teleport behind you.
It’s all a good humor joke, though many of the comments in these posts are genuine stories of frustrated fans still disappointed with the state of the game. "I understand that the project was ambitious, but the broken promises and the real delivery (in addition to some no less important things) were a huge disaster." wrote a redditor. "It's been almost half a year and they don't solve the problems with the game at all, let alone add missing features, wrote another. "Show the degree of completion of the game".
It seems that the general consensus is still a disappointment and contempt towards the game. Many of the posts containing the subreddit still consist of bugs, memes, and discussions about whether Cyberpunk has a future as a viable game. Despite the harsh feelings towards the game, this has not stopped him from returning to the PlayStation Store and somehow overcoming the June charts after only nine days.
