2021 was disastrous year for many reasons, but in the world of gaming, the story on everyone's lips was the botched release of one of the most hyped games of all time, Cyberpunk 2077. Riddled with bugs and eventually pulled from the PlayStation store, it's fair to say the game, released in December, didn't quite live up to expectations.

In an attempt to explain the debacle, CD Projekt Red's co-founder Marcin Iwiński has appeared in a video posted to Twitter. But the candid mea culpa has ended up raising more questions than answers. (If you're looking for a bug-free experience, check out the best Nintendo Switch games.)
