Ok, so I just officially finished Death Stranding. I genuinely really loved the story and even got pretty emotional near the end which I wasn't expecting. It's just such a shame I found the gameplay pretty horrendous from beginning to end (though I'll concede that it did get a bit better as the game went on). I still find it hard to recommend, but also it is a game that I'm glad exists. Love it or hate it, it is creative without a doubt.
From someone who is actually beginning to enjoy my time with Death Stranding, the overwhelming discourse of "This game is so different because it's not a shooter" seems so ridiculous to me. A.) There are SO many games that come out every year that aren't shooters. This isn't unique. B.) (spoilers?) You have a gun in Death Stranding.
@grable I’m watching brink and I can still quote this entire movie.
