Cyberpunk 2077 is a role-playing video game which is played in the first-person perspective as V, a mercenary whose sex, hairstyles, face, body type, body modifications, background (nomad, street kid, or corporate) are customisable.
V’s clothing alters how interactions fare with non-player characters (NPCs), with whom they have the potential to form romantic and sexual relationships.
Stat categories include – Strength, Constitution, Intelligence, Reflex, Tech, and Cool — are malleable to the character classes that players assume, which are NetRunner (hacking), Techie (machinery), and Solo (combat).

In addition to that players will have access to various supernatural and telekinetic abilities. For instance, she can use debris to form a defensive shield and hurl objects towards enemies, using them as weapons.
Players can acquire Objects of Power by completing side quests or exploring the game’s world. They are items which can be used to unlock new skills, such as the ability for Jesse to levitate in the air.

Once a character is recruited into the player’s roster, they are assigned to one of three classes: combat, stealth or hacking.
Each of these class features its own set of tools and the ability to upgrade when a character levels up by completing missions and activities.

The game will feature the return of Captain Price (portrayed by Barry Sloane rather than Billy Murray, who previously voiced him) from the previous Modern Warfare games; however, the character has been rebooted. One of the villains is a rogue Russian general inspired by Apocalypse Now‘s Colonel Kurtz.
The player controls Kyle Garrick, a former British Army officer, for the first half of the campaign and then shifts to Alex, a CIA agent, in the second half of the campaign.

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is the first choice-driven RPG game in the series all about vampires and vampire politics. The game is set in Seattle: from the dark alleys and buildings to the bright lights of the Pioneer Square, conveying a World of Darkness.
The main character here will be unwillingly turned into a vampire, and then gets involved in a war between the vampire clans. The key concept here is the Masquerade, which is a set of rules that allow vampires to survive among humans.
The game will start with a mass embrace that has many vampires being created all at once. The protagonist here will take on the role of one of these vampires, and will be welcomed into the world of the Masquerade by a fellow vampire.
The depth of the characters is immense in the game and a wrong decision in the game can affect you long hours.
