Cyberpunk 2077 vs Grand Theft Auto 5

Author at TechGenyz Gaming

2020 was a great year for the gaming industry as some of the awesome games were released back then including one of the most anticipated and hyped games of all time, Cyberpunk 2077.

Despite the annoying but hilarious bugs and crashes, the game managed to stand out in the world of RPG open-world games which made Cyberpunk 2077 a natural competitor to the all-time favorite Grand Theft Auto 5. Both of these games are pricy since Cyberpunk is the newest release, it costs the most, however, there is a website where you can find cheap cd keys for your desired game that provides all the game retailers and their set prices so you can choose the best option that fits your needs.

It sparked a series of comparisons made by different game fanatics and reviewers but something that most of us agree on is both games are pretty different at the core with a few similarities like a huge open-world map, RPG gameplay (in one more than the other), high fidelity graphics and a lot of fun side activities.

Gameplay

If we talk about the gameplay, Grand Theft Auto 5 does a way better job at providing a soothing and flawless gameplay, something that Cyberpunk 2077 hasn’t been able to provide to its players but that’s something they are still working on. GTA 5 also has a lot to do for the player in the game besides the missions, like the mini-games, various small jobs and in-game trading to name a few.

GTA 5 also provides a different taste of playstyle with the choice of character switching and all the three protagonists in the game have different abilities and lifestyles, something to change the perspective while playing the same game, which is something that Cyberpunk 2077 lack with only a single playable character that you start with.

Graphics

It seems a bit unjust to compare the graphics of these two games as GTA 5 was released all the way back in 2013 but still does a great job, on the other hand, Cyberpunk probably has the best graphics compared to most of the modern-day games with the help of new RTX technology that washes out its competitors by a long margin.

All though it requires more expensive builds to run this game but the visuals are absolute sight to the sore eyes with great attention to the details in the vast futuristic world which is worth every penny, as the fixes are already on the way.

Online Mode

This is probably the most fun part about GTA 5 that leaves Cyberpunk way behind. It allows you to play the game in online multiplayer mode which is great once you are done with the single-player storyline and there’s nothing more to explore in the world alone.

You can do a lot of fun stuff in GTA online like car racing, heists, robberies, and much more to earn money and build your vast empire in the criminal world of Los Santos.
