Days Gone has been among the least interesting exclusives on PS4 since release. Killzone Shadow Fall, Infamous Second Son, Driveclub, The Order 1886, Bloodborne, Uncharted 4, The Last Guardian, Gravity Rush 2, Horizon Zero Dawn, Persona 5, Gran Turismo Sport, God of War, Spiderman were games with more hype and which I was more excited for and most of them were good. The new trailer for Days Gone has done nothing to change my hype and from internet as well.
Comments on youtube are telling about the utter distaste for this game. It looks competently made, don't get me wrong, but it looks generic. Its a zombie game, in an open world and it isn't doing anything new with either of those. The camps and you taking them down in many ways looks like Far Cry. The visuals are good and it looks polished but that isn't enough. Sony Bend should have made Resistance 4 instead, they made Resistance Retribution and it was the best shooter on PSP and Sony could do with more FPS games as well as since Resistance 3 was fantastic.
Days Gone isn't going to sell well. Jim Sterling had a take on it which I agree with, it looks like it could be a competent, even the best zombie game but we have had enough zombie games and enough open worlds. The hand to hand combat looks bad and the story isn't treading new areas. Its a been there, done that game for which not a lot of people care.
