It's bit boring and out there for me

EvertonFC128d ago (Edited 128d ago )

Boring, the story is edge of seat stuff imo, you can't wait to get to the next waypoint/mission to progress the insane story.
The whole game is about inventory management, planning the route and then throw the story into it with great characters and twists.
If you find that boring well I don't know what to say really apart from the game was probably never for you in the 1st place.

Why then do people complain so much about fetch quests? Your missions were a majority of get package and deliver package.

The gameplay loop of delivering packages isn’t exactly riveting. If you didn’t want to make things longer by going back and forth you’d over-stack, which then made it cumbersome to deliver due to factors trying to make you fumble everything.

The story was interesting, for sure. But the gameplay loop is extremely one note and you can’t tell me if it weren’t for the story that this game would be a blast to play for hours upon end. I’m hoping with the sequel it’s more akin to something traditional vs delivering packages.

I think when the game went Kojima weird it was great and the story did make me want to see it to the end, but once I finished it I had 0 desire to ever go back. I think it’s absolutely fair for people to criticize it for being boring. It’s definitely an acquired taste.

That's kinda where I fit in. The story seemed like it might be pretty solid but the gameplay bored me to death. But it wasn't from a lack of anything just I wasn't my cup

I really liked Death Stranding. In an industry that's really stagnant, it was very refreshing.

I can't say I'm a fan of the whole players/users metric though. That's annoying.

GotGame818128d ago

Beautiful game. Interesting beginning. It just wasn't for me.

“Death Stranding” was my personal GOTY for 2019. Keep on keeping’ on.

The best PS5 exclusives 2024

With so many PS5 exclusives to choose from, it can be a little overwhelming to pick which one to play. This is especially true for a new PlayStation gamer who has yet to experience the wonder of PlayStation-exclusive storytelling. So, here's KnowTechie's take on the best PS5 exclusives in 2024 and beyond

PlayStation is killing it with the exclusives this year. Exclusive wise, what has xbox released this year?

VersusDMC7d ago

They won't complain about Microsoft not releasing games here but put all their effort into saying that only first party counts. Games like Rebirth and Grandblue Relink don't count. Games published by Sony like Helldivers 2, Stellar Blade and Rise of the Ronin don't count because Sony don't own the studios.

It's some narrative building so for when Hellblade 2 come out they can say, seemingly without shame, that Microsoft is actually releasing first party games this year. And claim victory.🙃

Weird 1st party games didn't matter when Xbox had so little, but, now they're important again? Guess Ark 3, Stalker 2 don't count any more?

KyRo7d ago (Edited 7d ago )

ARK 3 doesn't exist and it's just a timed exclusive. It's also a game that a majority of the ARK player base doesn't want as it's a massive deviation from what people like about the original game

Honestly to me it doesn’t matter what they say, they are just finally getting a chance to say all the things PS fan(boy)s were saying to them for the past few years. Let them get that, they deserve a “win” for a change.

The new narrative is that suddenly first party games matter again when awhile ago they didn’t, but that was because they were struggling with the same three games with the occasional fourth or fifth. That games should be everywhere on all platforms since that’s whats happening to theirs. The consoles don’t matter just the ability to play anywhere. Whatever Xbox is doing Sony will soon follow.

They’re not moving the goalpost anymore, but rather just moving the whole damn stadium.

Only a incel would care about who published what and who owns who.

If it’s not on the other consoles it’s an exclusive.

Killing what? Where are the 1st party games??
Stellar Blade and FF7 is what I’m seeing this year.. so shallow!!!!

andy857d ago

Doesn't really matter as long as they're great games. Baffles me why people put an emphasis on 1st party. They're still games you can't play anywhere else this year

Cacabunga6d ago


PS brand is my favorite because of their stellar first party software.. currently I see absolutely nothing to go crazy for..

CS76d ago


PS1 and PS2 was built on great third party exclusives like FF, MGS, GTA & Tekken.

RonnySins7d ago (Edited 7d ago )

Killing it my a$$! The 1st party is still MIA and no... Remakes and remasters don't count.

andy857d ago

I mean they literally do count. Imagine saying FF7 Rebirth doesn't count 😂

Tody_ZA7d ago (Edited 7d ago )

@Andy85 Don't forget the remakes for Demon's Souls and Shadow of the Colossus, two of the best PlayStation games around!

And beyond PlayStation, what about Resident Evil 2 and 4? RonnySins wins the award for dumbest opinion!

raWfodog7d ago

Of course I love the games I’ve played from PS but I don’t believe we need to limit it to ‘exclusive’ to acknowledge that Xbox will be releasing some good games this year also. In that same vein, I believe that Xbox diehards shouldn’t limit their acknowledgment of good PS games to 1st party. There are plenty of good games to go around for everybody.

Tacoboto7d ago

This is a Playstation article about Playstation games and your comment is about Xbox. Can't you just celebrate what PS has without dragging this into console war BS?

ChasterMies7d ago

I don’t think Microsoft is releasing games exclusively on Xbox anymore. They have some timed exclusives that release on Xbox first.

Returnal, Astro Bot, and Ratchet made having it since day one worth it.

GT7 free updates and Spiderman 2 and others at 60fps have made this last year more than okay.

But yeah, it’s been dry lately. BG3 and third party have made great filler, but we ready for that SOCOM or Killzone announcement and some more 1st party goodness. Crossing fingers for Ghost of Tsushima 2 announcement this summer.

Didn’t know Helldivers was exclusive! Wtf is going on at Xbox that they can’t get these games, series s strikes again.
