Fans Want 100% Completion Achievement On Cyberpunk 2077 Named 'You're Breathtaking'
After seeing Keanu Reeves steal the show at last week's E3 Expo, gamers on Reddit have decided that there is only one thing for the 100% completion award on Reeves' forthcoming game Cyberpunk 2077 to be called.
You've guessed it - you're breathtaking.
In case you don't get that reference, let me explain.
Reeves is set to make an appearance in the game, which is being created by polish video game company CD Projekt Red.
He appeared at the recent conference to tell fans about the game, and his appearance therein, when a member of the audience - a YouTuber called Peter Sark - shouted out 'you're breathtaking!' to him.
Keanu then immediately responded by saying "You're breathtaking - you're all breathtaking."

It's wholesome content is what it is. We need more stuff like this in these bleak and hostile times.
Anyway, since then it has become something of a meme, pretty much like nearly everything that Keanu Reeves does at the minute.
Oh, and the aforementioned YouTuber in question is going to get a free copy of the collector's edition of the game once it comes out.
Everyone's a winner, basically.
Now, Reddit users have had a think about it and want the unlockable achievement on the game to bear the name of Keanu's now famous utterance.
It would make a fair bit of sense, too. Oh, and gamers love a little Easter egg, don't they?
Well, someone shared a picture to Reddit suggesting that they should start a petition to get their way, and since then it has been upvoted nearly 50,000 times.
That's pretty big.
Even better news for Keanu fans, CD Projekt Red have confirmed that the role he is to play in the game isn't exactly a small one.
He's gonna have the second most amount of dialogue in the game - presumably behind only the main playable character, V.
Reeves plays a character called Johnny Silverhand, because he's got a silver piece of machinery on his hand.
He has also provided full body motion capture to the game, which is cool. Whether or not he's gonna perform any Matrix style lean-backs or cool shit like that isn't immediately clear.
This observer will certainly feel cheated if not, though.
In a recent interview with BBC Newsbeat, Reeves explained: "I'm kind of a guide. You know, you have to do something, but Johnny wants you to do something too. There's this...Am I your friend? Am I a foe? Am I really helping you? Am I not helping you? Are you in my way?"
Right, that clears that up, then. Thanks, Keanu.
The game will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on 16 April 2020.
