Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most ambitious games released in the past twenty years and there is so much variety to the game that every player likely comes away with a different aspect as their favourite.

Now, there is no guarantee of the amount of Keanu Reeves in these five games, but there is a guarantee of fun.

Games like Cyberpunk 2077

1. The Outer Worlds

The Outer Worlds is easily one of the most lauded RPGs recently released. There are beautiful visuals that accompany the player through the story. The science-fiction atmosphere enhances the idea that you are on a colony very far from the familiar environments you live in and even the slightest miscalculation can greatly change the setting you’re in. Conspiracy, humour, and very smart dialogue make this game a very memorable playthrough and definitely worthy as a Cyberpunk companion piece.

2. Outer Wilds

Outer Wilds, though similarly named to the previous entry, is tonally far more serious. The intrigue of travelling through procedurally generated and undiscovered space to uncover a mystery of the solar system. Using action to navigate the varied environments, the player can lose themselves as a necessary cog in the machine of discovery established in the world. This game has a consistent player base and, being the winner of a BAFTA, will continue to have support for a long period of time.

3. Star Wars: The Old Republic

Star Wars: The Old Republic is a free to play game set in the immensely popular Star Wars universe. The immense branching paths and ability to effortlessly intersect with other players and back into a quiet solo story makes this game one that rewards the new player at the same level as a decade long-player. The intricate and delicate balance of the Old Republic is at risk, and it is up to the player to determine if they want the galaxy to continue in its uncertain state, or take a stand to save the day. Familiar concepts like Jedi and Sith are intermingled with legacy aspects that are only mentioned in the film series. Continual mysteries and rewarding missions cement this game as one worth starting and playing more and more of.

4. Deep Rock Galactic

Deep Rock Galactic lets you play as a Space Dwarf. There is no other reason to immediately jump onto Steam and start to play. However, if you do need more reasoning, Deep Rock Galactic is a colourful and intuitive first-person shooter that encourages co-op with up to four players. The co-op is not required, and you can play through the campaign solo as well. Environments are procedurally generated, which is great because they are also fully destructible. With four player classes to choose from, you can rain destruction upon your enemies and destroy chunks of space in a nearly limitless variety of ways. But you don’t need any of those reasons, all you need to know is that you are a Space Dwarf and that, in and of itself, is unsurpassed.

5. Witcher III: Wild Hunt

If the familiarity of quality and control from Cyberpunk 2077 is still what you want, then I can only recommend CDProjekt Red’s previous game release, Witcher III: Wild Hunt. You can start with the original Witcher game or jump on to the final instalment in the trilogy on Steam with carrying over save files. Witcher III is one of the most highly awarded and praised video games of the past twenty years, and for good reason. A sprawling and thought driven story, intuitive combat, a complex socio-political structure to navigate, and some damn fun mechanics make this game simply one of the greatest of all time, and certainly a game worth every cent.
