maybe this title didn't make much fuss, anyway It's an absolutly new IP from not as well known company as others. But I liked what I saw

The other thing with this game is, it is zombies, big horde, open world... We get it. I don't need to know more. The game looks great I'm in

Survival with bikes and it's not even zombies. Post apocalyptic more like TLOU story driven but open world with infected and non infected enemies.
Fantastic potential and I loved what I saw.

@OB1Biker After Walking Dead almost no one calls Zombies - "zombies" :3

There are quite a few factors weighing in on this one. There's the fact that Sony Bend hasn't done a proper console game since 2007. Then you need to consider the overcrowded open world survival genre it's attempting to enter, not to mention comparisons with other games in the Sony stable.

Don't get me wrong, I'm hyped. Hopefully, as the game draws closer to release, it will start to find its own sense of character amid those games it's being constantly compared to.

I don't see any harm in comparing to TLOU. Just like GTA these games are a reference and many other games are seen in the same way.
On the other hand I think people comparing Days Gone to zombie shooter games make a mistake as I feel they are completely a different genre. A bit like comparing TLOU to Dead Rising IMO

I understand the whole generic open world zombie game and all but come on people. Have you ever seen gameplay like that from a zombie game. He had to navigate his way around a building while putting things in the zombies path and kill them all. I have never seen a game do that, EVER.

Also, hasn't the game been in development for 5 years or so. How was Bend supposed to know not to make this type of game. Either way, looks highly polished already and like the idea of doing what was in the demo but in the dark ;).

Yup, since 2011 I think. So they should be pretty far right now, right?
In one of the interviews, Sony Bend dude said they were going to make a game exclusively for the PS4. 5 years with 80-100 employees+Sony's vast number of studios to help out.

The game looked intense and promising. If it has the gameplay to match the number of zombies then I think this could turn out to be a really good title. But, keeping expectations low.

Looks great so far! can't wait to see more of the environments and different types of freakers.
