As per Cyberpunk 2077’s in-game statistics, Nomad and Corpo lose out to Street Kid for the title of the “Most Popular Life Path.” This revelation comes from Cyberpunk’s social media info series “Cyberpunk In Numbers,” where developers CD Projekt Red share interesting stats that capture how players interact with the game.
This time, CDPR revealed that more players have opted for the Street Kid life path than any other available in the controversial RPG. At least 41% of the players chose to make it on the streets of Night City than in its Corpo skyscrapers or amidst Nomad motor gangs.
While Cyberpunk did not mention exact player count figures for the Corpo and Nomad life paths, both of them together comprise 60% of the player count, so it’s pretty evident that they’re nowhere near Street Kid.
A lifepath in Cyberpunk 2077, or any other game with multiple characters having unique storylines, is a player-defined plot option that directly impacts the progression of a game.
In Cyberpunk, for instance, whatever lifepath you choose for V from Nomad, Corpo, or Street Kid will impact the first hour of the game and thus give you a completely different story experience.
While most gamers hailed Nomad as the best story option in the comment section of the tweet linked above, a few gamers also expressed disappointment as they believe that the lifepaths have minimal effect on the game.
Since we’re on player preferences, it was recently revealed that Panam is the most desired NPC in the game, as more than 67% of players chose her as the match for their V. This is a stat that leaves Judy Alvarez, Meredith Stout, River Ward, and Kerry Eurodyne heartbreakingly behind.
It’s good to see some light-hearted news concerning Cyberpunk and (especially) CDPR as the latter is still dealing with a veritable avalanche of problems.
Cyberpunk still isn’t back to the PS Store. And the game’s source code, along with that of The Witcher 3, has been leaked once again. However, Cyberpunk 2077 is officially crashing less, so CDPR got that going for them, which is nice.
