Are you expecting to be blown away by Days Gone?

Yes 37 39.78%
 
No 56 60.22%
 
Total:93

I'm definitely saying somewhere around the mid 70's based on what I've seen so far. Although that means nothing to me since I've enjoyed games in the 50's and 60's, lol...

Yes, Sony will limit the scope of the game by allowing the devs to delay the game and put in more money and man hours to polish it up so that it is not only in better shape, but also nearer to TloU2 when that launches.

This thread is weird.

Tlou2 doesn't need propping up. It alone can overshadow most games this year or even next, with relative ease.

How do you know the extra time was solely allowed for to make the game better and more polished? How much more money did they pour into it during those extensions? It's just as possible it was delayed so it wouldn't be overshadowed by other titles launching beforehand, or even this month. If the game was that great, it shouldn't really matter when it launches, like RDR2 and BO4.

I'm not saying the game will be trash and is purposely being sabotaged, I'm just saying from a PS perspective, if TLOU2 was launching before years end, having a blockbuster apocalyptic zombie game in late April, and another in November let's say, is kinda like a restaurant only offering KD for the entire year. People don't like too much of the same thing, and even worse, too much of it all at once.

Like I said before, whether the scope was limited in terms of what the game could have been overall, I still think it seems like while it could be an average title, that it's possibly a stock looking Civic that can blow the doors off a Corvette. You just wouldn't know it at first glance.

Well, I never claimed it was solely to make the game better/ more polished, but that your argument that Sony might want to limit the scope of the game was without merit.

It's a bit ridiculous to ask me how much money hey have used; how would I know? And sure, it could easily have been delayed for that reason but we actually have Sony saying it was done to further polish the game, and we have the latest demo showing being 7 month old builds, meaning they have not had the time to make new demo builds of the game.

I think it would matter when it launches because we are talking about the game being delayed to be polished and made better, therefore it is/ was not in a state that was good enough to release until it's new launch date of April.

That is a pretty poor analogy but i don't exactly agree with that analogy. Besides being post-apocalyptic and with an emphasis on zombies (which themselves are not even that related) both games aren't even remotely the same. Days Gone will do fine. TloU2 will do more than fine regardless of when Days Gone and itself releases.

While I'm not thrilled that Sony is putting resources into this and not a full fledged 1st party RPG (while they have some of the best in their catalog).

I'm not going to detract that Sony gives plenty of room and freedom for their developers to make what they want to make.



Not gonna be blown away, the new trailer looks good though, using things around to create chances to kill zombies can be actually fun

The game has been looking extremely meh since the very first trailer. It's Sony's Anthem.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

You could say the same for The Last of Us. It's a post-apocalypse zombie, escort mission game, I never thought it looked quite unique aside from its "zombies." It was super hyped because it came from Naughty Dog and they were on top of the world at that point (still are, I would argue). The game itself was praised mainly for its story, the gameplay was basic but effective. Days Gone looks to offer a lot more variety in tackling the enemies and other types of gameplay.

Still, I agree that it's very much a "been there, done that" looking game. It will need to set itself apart by its enemy variety, set-pieces, crafting/weapons (which doesn't look all that innovative?) and story. Originally, I was really hoping that you would be playing as a group of raiders or "bad guys", it would have been a cool little spin rather than just the heroic do-gooder.

I'm still excited for it, I love zombies to death and I hope that the story and characters will be memorable enough to forgive its lack of originality. I hope it does well if it deserves it.

Some aspects of it looks fun. Just exploring the world and scrounging for stuff seems fine. The main character seems too generic and boring though. Hopefully it will be an enjoyable ride.

If games like Sea of Theives & State of Decay can get scores in the 66-69 range, with their lack of content, bugs, graphics,story, ect... then Days Gone should be a 80+ rated game imo.

Litterly everyone seems to be underestimateing it, and saying it looks like a generic zombie game, when that isnt true at all.
I expect people to get surprised by it, and how well it reviews.

No, but you didn't offer any other explanation so how I was supposed to know you possibly thought there was more to it? Why was it without merit? You didn't provide anything solid to back that up. Just because PS said is was for polish doesn't mean much when PS has said plenty of things and done the opposite not long afterwards, and fairly recently at that. You mentioned they put in more money. It makes a massive difference whether it's 1 dollar or 1 million dollars. Just because they haven't had demo time doesn't mean they've been spending the majority of their time on Days Gone.

If I were PS, even if I were launching TLOU2, I wouldn't allow it to launch around the same time as a COD or GTA or RDR game, etc. Your just asking to be overshadowed to some degree. That's money lost for almost no reason. You might as well launch slightly later and have the spotlight and sales to yourself. That's why I said sleeper in the first place. The game probably has a lot more to it, we just aren't seeing it right now. Days Gone and TLOU2 are different but are much more the same than the majority of other games, launching around this time frame, and in this case by SIE themselves. Both should do just fine, but some of that will no doubt be due to strategic launch positioning.
