8 Games You Need to Play Before Cyberpunk 2077

Storytelling is a hallmark of any CD PROJEKT RED title, from the deep characters and compelling storylines to the difficult choices and player-driven worlds. To that end, the Witcher devs owe much to the likes of Chris Avellone and the developers behind one of the best RPGs ever made: Planescape: Torment.

Though set in a classic Dungeons & Dragons setting, Torment helped to define and innovate on the complexity and depth a game could offer with its narrative. Many of Torment's systems — story-centric or otherwise — would go on to inspire developers across the genre, and there are plenty of gamers out there, our Ty Arthur included, who see this title as one of the pinnacles of gaming achievement.
