The biggest thing that doesn't make sense about Cyberpunk 2077, right off the bat, is how CD Projekt Red released this game on PS4 and Xbox One. It doesn't seem to be ready for these systems, or even possible to run in the near feature. For those lucky enough to have an Xbox Series X, or PS5, most of these console problems are not too bad.

They are far from perfect compared to the PC version, but still not too shabby. There are other things about the game itself that don't make sense — most of these pertain to mechanics and will not spoil anything except for a couple of minor things in the first few hours of the game.

10 Cars Crazier Than Roach

The cars in this game are out of control. They perform just like Roach, the horse, did in The Witcher 3. That is to say that they can appear out of nowhere within seconds. Are they driving around constantly following the player? What’s going on here?


9 Paper Money In 2077

In the current era of 2020, paper money is still huge in society but it’s getting better. It’s hard to believe that in the span of fifty years, paper money is still around in this game though. If pretty much everyone in society has a USB port in their body they can use to jack into kiosks to share information then it is hard to believe there is a need for paper money. It just doesn’t add up.

8 What’s With The Bat?

This is a case of blinking and missing it but it is still a question worth asking. In V’s car there is the strange bat as pictured above. First of all, why can’t players use that for a weapon? Secondly, why is that bat riddled with holes? Is there a backstory to it? Other bats in the game don’t look like that so there must be.

7 Messing With NPCs

NPCs could care less about V. The only ones that really react are cops if they see players killing innocents.

Players can get in people’s faces, stand on their grills, and anything in between — maybe sometimes they may say something, but never fight back. Stranger yet, players can remove their clothes down to their underwear and no one will blink an eye.

6 Where Were Those Guns?

In the mission The Heist, Jackie and V are forced to leave their guns in the cab. This is so the alarm doesn’t go off. However, when they are trying to escape, Jackie pulls out his twin pistols like it was nothing. Maybe they are made of plastic, but the safer bet here is that someone forgot about the story and didn’t change his combat programming. Either that or he just so happened to find two guns in the tower that looked like his.

5 Video Magazines

Another paper mystery that appears in this game is in regard to magazines. If players begin the game as a StreetKid and talk to Kirk, he will pass over a magazine with the car he wants. It appears to be some sort of hybrid magazine that uses both paper and screens. While cool, it doesn’t seem very practical to create a magazine like this in that it is probably very expensive to both make and purchase.

4 Haven’t Fixed Mop Buckets In The Future

In a world with flying transports, cybernetic arms, cyberspace, and so forth, it is hard to believe that the mop and bucket situation hasn’t been fixed. It’s a classic model so one may wonder why anyone should change it. Maybe these products were put in the game as a joke to signify that some things never change no matter what year it is. That’s the only thing that would make sense about this situation.

3 Where Are The Kids?

This game should be applauded for finally including kids in an open-world. It’s one of the strangest things missing from a lot of games.

However, there is something odd about the children. If one tries to take a picture of them in photo mode they disappear. Maybe this is a bug, or maybe it was done for other reasons, but it is weird regardless of the why.

2 Takemura Speaking English

One of the coolest pieces of tech in the game is the auto-translation program V has. Presumably, most people have a chip in them that can help translate other languages and put subtitles up in the world. Seeing someone speak in non-English only for the words to transform is a cool flourish. Given that this tech exists it makes no sense then that Takemura doesn’t speak in Japanese. His English isn’t the worst, but he does sound strained.

1 Jackie’s VR Tutorial

After the setup, players will go through a montage before eventually coming to the first real mission of this game. Before starting, Jackie hands over a VR training chip to help V get reacquainted with combat. At this point in the story, it doesn’t make sense why V would use that. If anything the tutorial should have been placed in the opening.
