A scathing review of cyberpunk on Artforum: “the game’s smattering of blatant homophobia by way of grotesque stereotypes and derision, specifically of and toward gay men, wouldn’t be as noteworthy if the development studio, CD Projekt Red, hadn’t gone out of its way to tout the game’s “LGBT content.” Alas, the now-familiar gimmick of [#conscious](/gaming/new/conscious) marketing always reveals itself in the end.”

THE MOST WIDELY ANTICIPATED VIDEO GAME of the past several years, Cyberpunk 2077, was finally released in the twilight of 2020. Served up in over thirty countries across all major gaming platforms, this regrettably undercooked sci-fi pastiche—riddled with disruptive glitches, prone to crashing, and jerry-rigged from clearly unfinished code—infuriated nerds across the globe. I thought that perhaps a dystopian hacker narrative marred by erroneous programming might represent a perfect (albeit accidental) marriage of form and content—but this interpretation has probably appeased no one. Moreover, from this gaymer’s perspective, the technical faults of Cyberpunk 2077 are the least of its problems.
