We have a thread dedicated to life after Death Stranding… but what were everyone thoughts on death stranding itself?
I bought the game late (actually was playing it over Christmas just gone) and absolutely loved it, probably more so due to the way the world is at the minute. It’s sad to say that the game was relatable to a degree - invisible threats that could potentially kill us, everyone connecting via a network rather than seeing each other, couriers being an essential service for people’s well-being etc.
But with that aside, the game play was fun! I’d never imagined one of my favourite games consisting of being a courier and taking packages to folks with my biggest foe being some uneven turf and rain. Sure the BT’s made things tense, but climbing over a mountain without falling on my ass was definitely the fun in the game for me.
My only disappointment is that we didn’t get an IPod once we finished the game so we could get 5 stars with all of the preppers with a bit of background music. If we got it any earlier it would detract from the nice bit of music after a big journey - which was an experience in itself. But I did find it a bit tedious after the game had ended, needed some tunes. I still need to go back and get all of my 5 stars at some point.
I loved how the world changed when you connected a new strand though, seeing all of the structures other players had put down really helped on a lot of journeys. Plus they definitely make you question your routes and encourage you to try different options.
Fuck the bridges though, they constantly got in the way of my ziplines.
