I mean honestly, it doesn’t look like a BAD game per say… I know a lot of press have pretty much dumped on it from day 1 because of zombie fatigue, which I completely understand. That’s always given me pause, because looking at it, I don’t see anything WRONG with the game. It has been delayed enough to a point where I could use a neat zombie survival game in 2019.
Another big reason is that I really like the talent behind the main character. The actor’s name is Sam Witwer, and he’s a big name in the Star Wars community. He played Starkiller in the Force Unleashed games, which were pretty dang good, and he made Darth Maul into a character people actually CARED about in Clone Wars/Rebels. Witwer is a fantastic talent, and I am super excited to see what the story is around Days Gone.
Also, they’ve been dropping some gameplay vids that look pretty neat:
All of this gameplay looks real butt clenching to me, and that sounds like fun! I dunno, I feel like people are giving Days Gone an unfair shake with no reason.
