Death Stranding’ s best moments are small and quiet. It has a heavy plot thick with metaphors and cinematic flair, but Death Stranding soars in the contemplative moments. When I sat at the top of a mountain and scanned the horizon, charting a path; when I came across a ladder left by another player that would save my life; when I sat panting on the ground after a rough encounter with BTs, those were the moments I loved most. To build more of those moments, Sam needs to deliver packages, and the best package to deliver is pizza.
