I'm a little too excited. I've put in the pre-order a few weeks ago then tried to avoid anything about it, for the sake of not ruining the experience.
Then the final trailer came out and my Google news feed starting pouring in the reviews .
I've seen lots of commercials and advertisements for this? It always seems to be at the forefront of gamers desire. I think there is a pent up demand for this. Ads help get the word out, for those people willing to spend 60 dollars on a game, they are already aware and don't need any convincing.The lack of marketing for this game is dumbfounding.
That is the main reason I bought it. The reviews look middling, but I liked Metal Gear so much and Kojimas's style, I figured I'd give it a shot.I think this particular type of game is only going to appeal to a specific type of gamer who really understands Hideo Kojimas background from how he portrayed the Metal Gear series.

So I’ve been watching the reviews pretty closely on this game from users, _not_ critics. And I’m finding that most are basically saying it’s a walking simulator where you essentially traverse and deliver packages/items to certain drop points with mixed cut scenes. Now, I’m sure there’s much more content to this based off what others are saying. Hideo is always known to insert diverse thematic events for cut scenes, which have always been very well done with the Metal gear series, which is really telling a story in itself. But the gameplay itself for Death Stranding seems like it’s actually not a game at all, it’s more of a journey that opens up to different venues and characters.
I’m not knocking this game at all, just giving my brief observations based off reading dozens of user reviews, but I will say this, if there was one game that really has me on the fence of what to do, Death Stranding has my interest piqued and yet, I may hold off on this one momentarily.
I'm seeing much of the same. At this point I'm definitely waiting for it to go on sale. I've got too many other games on my backlog at this point anyway.
My back log is massive. (Finish Red Dead 2, Days Gone, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Rage 2, No Mans Sky). I don’t see myself adding Death Stranding to the lineup, Plus we have Cyberpunk 2077, Doom Eternal And The Last of Us 2 arriving for 2020 , I’ve got a lot of ground to clear over the next 5 months.
There are some stunning visuals in the game. I did some hiking yesterday and scaled down a 100m cliff and then walked around the area to find a beautiful waterfall.Is that the graphics? Looks to real...
If it is, I can't even fathom the "Graphics Update" for the PS5, or even the sequel on it...
