    Just got into Death Stranding

    This is probably the first time where I feel like I would rather just read this game's story in a book as opposed to playing it as a video game, which says a lot really. The game is on sale and considering current events I figured I would check it out, seems like the perfect theme for 2020. There is some crazy virus going around, everyone is isolated, and you are the delivery boy making deliveries to people in a ravaged world. As far as PS4 games go I think it probably has some of the best looking environments I have seen on a console, and the characters look great, but playing it kind of sucks. The problem that I got with it is how it is basically taking a delivery concept as the entire focus for the game, any action to be had simply isn't compelling and I honestly would just rather avoid it outright, in fact I consider it more annoying than anything else.

    The gameplay mostly consists of you trying to carry around a bunch of packages and having to navigate around a bunch of mountains and rivers. Throughout these travels the bulk of your gameplay is simply trying to keep your character balanced as they tip around since you are just hiking a bunch of cases all stacked up on your back. It's kind of relaxing actually to just hike from point to point, but then the game tries to introduce some challenge and action and whenever it does that it just gets in the way of me enjoying the only thing that I actually like about the game. Overall it feels like this game is just an exercise in frustration after a while, which is a shame because I can see how laid back the game could be and the story is interesting but then again you got all of these ridiculous and campy characters typical of Kojima these days.

    That in the end stands out to me as the biggest issue, this game feels like it's just some pretentious art project where Kojima had way too much influence over the experience. It's like he sort of reminds me of George Lucas and M Night Shyamalan where they did a great job making something original, but then as they got more and more fame and control over everything they ended up making a bunch of crap.

    If you don't watch 15mins of gameplay footage on youtube or twitch before buying a game you deserve what you bought boyo.

    I haven't played it, but it seems to be either a love or hate relationship. To me it looks like a good looking walking simulator.

    I saw no shortage of coverage on this game before I got it so I knew exactly what I was getting into. I felt like I needed to see it for myself and it seemed like a good time to do that.

    I both love and hate it at the same time to be honest. I love trying to traverse the terrain and watching the story unfold but I hate everything else about it. I actually turned down the difficulty since I just don't even want to deal with the action sequences much, and they are such a bad part of the game that I want to minimize it at much as possible.

    I don't understand all the hype for Kojima. Some ppl lose their minds every time someone mentions his name. He looks like a cool dude but his games are mediocre.

    Yeah that's why I related him to guys like Lucas. He came up with something good a long time ago and ever since he has had some loyal fanboys acting like he is the best and most creative director on earth. Also like Lucas he has a lot of really dumb ideas he puts in everything.

    I watched the story and it seemed great. Would make a fantastic series or movie.


    The game play just looked kind of like a joke

    Honestly, that is why I ended up turning down the difficulty. I like the story and I want to see how it plays out but whatever is meant to be a challenge beyond simply traveling is just chitty. By now I just want to progress the story and go from point to point, minimize everything else.

    I'll probably give it a try when it's $10-$20 bucks. Kojima may or may no be losing his touch, but the dude has always been ahead of his time. Playing MGS2 when I was a kid made me think ''wtf is this story". Replayed it in my early 20's and holy fuk and how accurate it describes today's society. MGS1 and 3 are also GOAT level games and very influential to games nowadays too.

    Also, MGS5 was dope too, but it just got repetitive after 30-40 hours. The game had the potential to be more than an 8/10, but it was still very enjoyable.

    I'll also want to try it when the price will be like 30 bucks for example. I still cannot make my final opinion about it.

    I watched the game being played on twitch and it took me about 10 minutes to realize id rather eat **** then play that game. Its a legit FedEx delivery driver simulator with a **** confusing story. I even watched the story on youtube and still don't know what it is about terrible game. How do you go from making GOAT MGS games to that ****.

    Kojima ego just got too big imo.

    People that are saying the game is good are only saying it because of who made it. If an Indie developer made that game it wouldn't have sold 1000 copies.

    Yeah I totally stopped playing the game and moved on to other games pretty soon after I made this thread. I hit a point where I had to deal with a bunch of BS, realized how I wasn't really enjoying the bulk of the experience, and started playing some games that are actually fun/enjoyable.

    Yeah I totally agree, Kojima has become one of those big media burnouts who has loyal fanboys supporting whatever kind of pseudo art crap he is making.

    Yeah he used to be awesome back in the 90's, definitely when he hit his peak and it's also when he had the least amount of control over games. MGS3 is probably the last game I truly liked from him.

    Yeah the environments are pretty much the only thing that impressed me about the game. The actual gameplay aspects just sucked.

    Might be in the minority here but I actually kinda enjoyed it for a while. Like everyone else says though, after a few hours of playing it is literally a walking simulator.

    I sunk a few days into the game and wasn't enjoying the gameplay, still felt like I needed to finish it though because of the story...

    Even the main bosses felt like a walking simulator because there wasn't actually any difficulty behind them..

    Lol @ dissing Kojima, dude is a genius, MGS series before V were all masterpieces in cinematics and gameplay

    Kojima games are repetitive like a lot of games, but they have a deep meaning behind them

    At least he's trying to bring some originality to the industry, something we've been missing for years

    I'm going to buy it on PC
