After eight years of hype and high hopes, Cyberpunk 2077 launched as a buggy, disappointing mess. If your giftee is one of the many people feeling burned by that belly flop, soothe their wounds with another neon-soaked, ’80s-inspired adventure. Cloudpunk is a slow burn, more focused on atmosphere and story than chaotic cyborg violence.
If your giftee is more into the robo body modification, try Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Sure, it’s an older game that has issues of its own, but at least it’s not a broken mess.
