“I’m really glad I started playing” – Asmongold awestruck by Cyberpunk 2077, calls Starfield’s story “sh**ty”


Twitch star Zack “Asmongold” commenced his first playthrough of Cyberpunk 2077 on September 30, 2023, playing the game for 10 hours before sharing his first impressions. The CD Projekt Red-developed title awed the content creator, who described it as being on “another level.” Asmongold also said Starfield “convinced” him that he did not like story-driven games, but he has since changed his mind.

He remarked:

“I mean, I don’t want to talk about this a whole lot. But, like… you know, Starfield convinced me that I didn’t like stories in games. But, maybe I do. I just don’t like sh**ty ones. That’s what it is, right?”

The Austin, Texas-based personality expressed delight at having begun playing Cyberpunk 2077 and added:

“I’m really glad I started playing. Yeah, I’m really, really glad I started playing. Damn! Like… I feel like the intro for this game is on the same level as the intro for Final Fantasy 16 – which I felt the same way whenever I finished that intro. I was like, ‘What the f**k!’ Right? It’s incredible.”
