Definitely would see it, it has a strong message for humanity but sadly not to many understands it, and this is some of the reasons lots of people at same time thinks Death Stranding is just a walking simulator they just dont see the big pucture here. I hope the movie delivers the strong story the game has.

I think the risk of it being overexposed is there.

If this doesn't star Norman Reedus I'm out

"I hope the movie delivers" - I respect your punnage!

Joking aside, the visual imagery of Death Stranding is so striking, it would certainly get noticed. They might need to signpost the messages a bit more in order to connect with mainstream viewers though.

It's not that people don't see the big picture, they just don't enjoy the game or think it's fun to play.

It’s nothing to do with misunderstanding the big picture or story. Those are fine, as expected for a Kojima game, but the gameplay doesn’t really back it up.

It’s Kojimas weakest 3D game for sure, by a mile.

I love the disagrees because it means people think games like Meta Gear Solid or Zone of the Enders are his weakest ones instead.

Face it, Death Stranding, whether you love it or not IS his weakest game.

It's either that or Metal Gear Solid V

Let me guess, its not on xbox?

Orchard579d ago (Edited 579d ago )

@S2 it’s in Xbox GamePass for PC. Not sure if you can stream that to console or not.

But being on another platform doesn’t make this game any less of a chore. It can come to 20 platforms - it’ll still have the same issues.

Hard to say it’s anything but his weakest modern entry.

I'll see the movie.
I think the narrative, itself, is interesting.

I thought the game was drawn out and monotonous though.

Vx_580d ago

To be realistic, no gamer play a video game for “the message” .. no one cares.

Software_Lover579d ago

Wall-E also had a strong message for humanity. I wish people would listen.

I guess the film adaption of Death Stranding is simply 2 hours of gameplay

-Foxtrot580d ago

It'll be the games cinematic without the gameplay at this rate

Lol, all jokes aside. I think this will lend itself very well to a movie. If done right.
