......over an actual RPG like Bravely Default II that came out last February even though this game isn't even an actual RPG. This or Monster Hunter (which is an action multiplayer game) should've given their spot to BDII.

Because awards like these are virtually meaningless. That an unfinished game so very far off the mark can be nominated proves as much. It excels at almost nothing that I would consider strong RPG elements with the open world a particular disappointment. The story is average.

What we have seen though is a vocal minority that have convinced themselves that this game doesn’t need vast improvement. So, it’s not really a surprise to see some so called ‘critics’ suffering from the same delusion.

Because its story telling is actually fantastic, as per CDPR standards previously. It's the bugs and gameplay changes that are the biggest hindrance to true greatness.

Lore, voice acting, story and world is all top-notch.
In other words, the game part of the video game in a video game awards show doesn’t get proper consideration. Makes sense.

OK but that doesn't explain how this game got nominated over a literal Final Fantasy spinoff.

I really hope that is not aimed at me in this topic or my topic you recently posted in. I have gone on record as stating that as much as I like this game, it needs much more work put into it in 2022 on PS4 PRO.

Not only that, but I would have given Launch Cyberpunk a generous 3 out of 10. As of now, it fluctuates (for me) between a 5.5 and 6.5. In another 12 months I may be able to bump it up again to an 8 at the highest.

Early buyers and pre-order people like me were screwed, but buying it now for $10-20 is not as much of a loss, IMO.

Genuinely, that wasn’t aimed at you at all. In fact my own scores would be similar to your own but I highly doubt it will ever be worthy of 8/10, there’s just too much that needs done. I hope I’m wrong though.

Don't look at me, I'm not in charge of it. Would it have made more sense to have "story narrative" be the section it was nominated for? Yes, but it is what it is.
I was expanding on what you said. I wasn’t directing what I said at you.

The story is OK i guess, but the small handful of endings, lack of real choices and all roads leading to the same outcome kinda hurts it's score there.

I would give it big points on voice acting, with the exception of male V, who is subpar. But no way does it deserve to be nominated as best rpg when it barely is one at all.
