Leave it to Keanu Reeves, one of the greatest human beings to ever grace this planet, to outshine every video game that Xbox showed off at E3 on Sunday.
It turns out that Reeves is in the highly anticipated game Cyberpunk 2077, which is being made by the same developer who gave us The Witcher series. And to help hype up the game and the news of its release date, Reeves himself came on stage to deliver the good word.
Someone from the audience clearly yelled out to him that he is breathtaking, which is objectively true, and he yelled back that they, in fact, are breathtaking. And then he elaborated that everyone is in fact breathtaking, including you and me.
What a treasure.
It’s been a lot for the internet to handle.
Sure, Cyberpunk 2077 looks cool and the rest of Xbox’s lineup was good, but Reeves stole the show.
Xbox knew to give the people what they want: star of The Matrix and John Wick, Keanu Reeves.
what companies think gamers want: video games
what gamers actually want: keanu reeves telling you that you are loved

Of course, as a character in a game like Cyberpunk 2077, people are wondering if it will be possible for players to develop a romantic relationship with the character. That would be icing on the cake.
But do I get to romance Keanu Reeves, CDProjektRed?

Someone pointed out that Reeves’s introduction to the gaming world means that he could, someday, be in Super Smash Bros. I want to live in that world.

It’s clear that, between John Wick 3, Toy Story 4, Always Be My Maybe, and Cyberpunk 2077, this is a bona fide Keanu Reeves renaissance.
Good luck matching that, other video game companies.
