First: It's okay to like problematic things!
Got that? Good. I am VERY interested in seeing this game and playing it. VERY. And I probably will because of a number of attachments to it and some faith in the company. They built faith with me in Witcher 2. If they had not, I would probably be lost to them from this trailer.
Mostly because of the framing.
See, this is Cyberpunk, right? A sexy cybered up lady is pretty much expected. Plastic surgery is as common as changing socks, and about as cheap. Police, also, brutal tyrannical types? Totally makes sense. Kickass slow mo to really show you the violence and all the dead bodies? Yep. Totally get that.
Why does is suck in the way in which it is framed? Timing. I know the genre well enough to know that if you have a beautiful cybered up lady, the source material suggests she should be a razor girl. That is, she should be a modern, for hire, body guard as well as arm candy. Why assume that this woman should be drawn from that source? BECAUSE SHE'S GOT SOME CRAZY ARM CYBER THINGS! AND FACE ARMOR! So clearly, she's a cyber warrior ass kicking badass, because she has weapons and armor BUILT INTO HER BODY.
But we do not see her kick any ass. Instead, we see her in her underwear on her knees (knees spread apart like she's reverse-cowgirling the ground, no less.) She's passive. Her expression is vacant like she doesn't even notice the bullet grazing her face armor. (And not even in a noticeable 'totally high from crazy synthetic street drugs way that would also fit the source material.)
And okay, yeah, we see that she survives and I guess becomes a cop. I guess what we're supposed to assume is that she's just finished killing all the people we see dead, paused to look sexy on the ground, and passively let this cop dude sneak up on her, and then she gets her head shaved and joins the cops. Okay? I guess? But by showing us her ONLY when she's passive, ... just guh ugh bleck. SHOW ME HER KILLING ALL THOSE PEOPLE! Or if she did not kill all those people, SHOW ME HER CUTTING THAT DUDE'S GUN IN THREE PIECES AND FEEDING THEM TOO HIM JUST BEFORE SHE GETS TAKEN DOWN BY A HAIL OF BULLETS.
Because violence against women is a real big problem. Enough that you have to carefully examine your use of it in media.
Because beautiful women in underwear are so common as to have no impact any longer, and so the edgy quality of it in Gibson novels et all isn't edgy any more.
Got it? Cool. Thanks. Cyberpunk 2077 Teaser Trailer
