If Fortnite was crap it wouldn't be the most popular game in the world. Popularity doesn't generally mean something is great, but it's usually a great indication that something isn't bad. It's a well built, polished multiplayer FPS with good replay value. JWE's main criticisms from reviewers was the lack of content and replay value, which is a real killer when it comes to scores these days.

 

Also critic opinions always mean something tbh, not so much individually, though if you have similar tastes with a reviewer that can be a good indication if you'll like the game or not, but if you take a step back and see what the general opinion is you can usually get a good idea of the quality of the game. That said, scores in the games industry are kinda wack. If a game has a score of 7/10 it's often seen as a bad video game but if you were to rate something 7/10 it would probably mean you liked it, generally speaking 7/10 would be considered a good score. It's probably because AAA gaming seems to have operated on a 7-10 review scale for years now, with 7 being considered a bad game and 9 being a good game. It's only recently that AAA review scores have started to... I don't want to say normalise but they're becoming a bit more sensible. Critics at the least are showing no mercy if an AAA game just isn't good, as we've seen with games like FO76 and Anthem, plus average scores in the low to mid 80's is now considered a great score by most gamers.

 

This is pretty much why I'm kinda puzzled at Days Gone's reviews because over the past I don't know, 7-10 years, open world AAA games have been standard 8-9/10's as long as it's polished and has all the open world tropes people come to expect (crafting, checklist side content, lengthy story, level up system + skill tree, etc). I haven't played it my self so I don't know if it's a victim of reviews finally scoring open world games that aren't doing anything special with lower scores, or if the game is just genuinely not particularly good.

 

As for the movie/tv reviews, those are a whole other kettle of fish. Movie/TV critics use more of the 1-10 scale, 5-6 out of 10 isn't a bad score for a film or TV show.

I tell you what these Freakers are nasty f*ckers in groups. I thought when I first played it that perhaps they were a bit too easy to take down (individually), but I've been slowly encountering them in larger groups and they'll f*ck your arse up bad if you're not on your toes.

 

I was riding along and one of them jumped at me and knocked me off my bike.

In the context of gaming, the state of reviewers/critics nowadays are to cater to bunch of hive minded people. 

 

They are there not to review or give thoughtful critics. They just there to say what people want to hear and read about the game. Some spineless people also need it as assurance.

 

Far too often these reviewers/critics even barely scratch the surface. They don't know the game. They just want to talk about it.

 

In that case, reviewers and critics for gaming are bunch of invalids, no matter if they are gaming site journalists or Youtube clowns.

 

To watch gameplay videos (like you do) should be the standard for gamers to do if they are hesitant, especially when we have a lot of contributors who play earlier and we also have those gameplay who are uploaded by players who play the game seriously.

 

And that follows to this guy's post below...

Review or opinion or critic? Pick one. They do and must stand in its own right.

 

Review is review, opinion is opinion, critique is critique. Those are different things and you should know that. Or actually the massive amount of gamer should know that.

 

In gaming, this 3 are jumbled into one another that you people, the consumers of these, are even confused and use them wrongly. No wonder the state gaming journalism is f*cked up right now. You guys create a false supply and demand. (Not to mention that you gamers have a really high alert to criminalize game companies out of the subtlest hint, but you would defend any lies and hoax spread by these gaming reviewers, but that's another topic)

 

Off topic, but it's great that you both mentioned TLAD. I was one of those who eaten the review bullsh*t and found myself fooled by it. Fast forward few years later, big fat middle fingers to these bullsh*t gaming reviewers/critics.

 

Gamers always talk about quality this, quality that, taste this, taste that, but they patronize this kind of reviewer and critics.

I'm just casually talking about my take on reviews and you are writing an essay about how 3 words are different and how the gaming community is f*cked. I couldn't care less. I can use those words interchangeably whenever I want because they have close meanings. But sure if you're talking "in detail", they are different but that's not relevant to what I was saying at all. I know my take on the subject. The Average metacritic score is often very similar to my personal rating of the games and that's why I care about it. You don't care about reviews, good for you. 

 

I don't "like" reviewers but them and a bunch of youtube videos are what we have before throwing 60$ into the bin. I can't buy stuff without knowing that I'm going to get my money's worth.

For those playing, how are the bike mechanics and physics? Always thought those looked a bit iffy from the footage, but it's hard to judge vehicle mechanics/physics from footage.

 

Also, what's the fuel management like as well, I actually really like that aspect of the game but I know it could easily become tedious if fuel is too scarce or pointless is fuel is everywhere.

If you don't like reviewer and you're aware of the existence of gameplay videos, then why even still taking those reviewers into account and consideration? You get more factual stuff from gameplay videos and fair opinions from serious players.

 

And no. Review, opinion, and criticism don't have close meaning and you can't use them interchangeably. When I ask you to review about your favorite game, I expect you to know inside out to tell me in detail about the feature, amount, gameplay tech, etc. When I ask you your opinion about your favorite game, then I want you to have knowledge about it before telling me how do you feel about it and what you think of the good and the bad. When I ask you your criticism about your favorite game, then I also want you to have good knowledge about that game and tell me what can be improvised, replaced, or removed that may shape the game better.

 

I was going to give example earlier, but this is pretty much why I said no wonder about the current state of gaming journalism.

-Because I rely on an overall result. I don't want to decide solely on reviews or gameplay videos. I want to make a decision based on an overall preview. Once again the metacritic score is an average of 80-100 critics. That's why it can be accurate at times. You could say a couple of critics are dummies but that score is an "average". I usually rate games after I finish them myself and my scores are pretty close the that "average" so it's clear by now that the metacritic score matters to me because it could be a reflection of the score I would give to the game myself if I played it. 

 

-Critique or Review do have close meanings. You have to realize not all people want to use close words "exactly" where they should be used in a regular conversation. It's not a literature test. I'm having a casual talk.

Overall preview of a game based on Metacritic score? Not to mention that score is coming from a site that is free-for-all medium for all kinds of bullsh*ttery. Gameplay videos and actual players can give you overall preview or overall result, factual and much more accurately, if that's what you truly want and not driven by numbers.

-You still don't get it do you? I don't give a sh*t about how bad you think the critics are. Because my score is close to the average. Thanks for giving me the right advice but you can't change my mind. Nope. Waste of time. Because I'm stubborn af so don't waste your time. I want to be left in ignorance. I have my way of deciding on purchasing a game and that is a combination of gameplay videos and metacritic scores and that's how it's gonna be even if you think it's wrong. 

 

-Sure. You're gonna be fun at parties huh?

I never tried to change your mind to begin with. I was talking about the state of gaming journalism in general, but since you got ticked and ignorantly defensive towards it, then it pretty much confirmed that I was correct about it. And you know it makes sense too considering you think I was trying to change your mind.

 

It's safe to say we both have no interest in zombie game and this game. But this shows our difference. All these posts, you could have asked these players about the game instead. 

 

Yes, I'm fun at parties. You don't have to be an idiot to have fun and entertain others.

I personally do not own the game, however one my best buddies had been impatiently waiting for it for a couple of years now, and I had the chance to play for a few hours yesterday.

 

I don't believe Days Gone actually deserves all the sh*t it receives. I will say that I haven't followed the pre launch marketing campaign and thus cannot comment on anything related to personal hype or broken promises from the devs and such.

 

Being handed the controller without any type of knowledge of the game, the adaptation time has been really quick as Days Gone, when it comes to its core design, hasnt anything original to offer. Instead, it takes multiple elements from different games. In that optic, maybe the developers thought that by doing so they would develop a ''perfect game''. Immediatly, I was reminded of The Last of Us, 7 Days to Die, The Forest and other similar games. Days Gone follows the open world survival formula to the script, with basic looting, crafting, repairing, survival elements and etc...

 

If you are looking for a well fleshed out story, with good characters and good acting, you might be disapointed in Days Gone. Unfortunately, the game followed the Ubisoft/Assassin's Creed/Farcry route, where quantity triumphs over quality. The story is overshadowed by the massive amount of repetitive side content present in the world. On the plus side, from my few hours worth of playing perspective, the side content seems to be entirely optional, and won't hinder you if you're just looking to complete story missions. 

 

Days Gone actually shines in the way it tackles ennemy AI whether human, zombie, or animal. The world around you really does feel alive and does evolve whether you actively participate in it or not. In that regard, Days Gone might be one of the best game on the market, and it reminds me of the Middle-Earth (Shadow of Mordor and Shadow of War) series in the way it innovates in those areas. The weather system is very well done, with snow acumulating on the ground and such, another point that contributes greatly in making the world more immersive and natural.

 

In conclusion, Days Gone lacks soul. However, this trend is slowly creeping into the industry and Days Gone is no different nor worse than the other games being produced nowadays, and this why I believe it doesn't deserve the bad name its being given. If it had been produced by a well renowned studio, the game would have have been regarded as a masterpiece. While Days Gone can feel like a clone of many existing games, it does raises the bar and looks into establishing a new standard for the quality of open worlds.

Days Gone is a sandbox game with lots of content, and I feel that any hardcore gamer that appreciates today's games will appreciate Days Gone and recognize its plus and minus. However, the casual gamer will have difficulty finding enjoyment past a couple of hours of playing.

 

I would give it a solid 7.5/8 out of 10 which, considering the way games are rated nowadays, could equate to anything in between 82-89 on metacritic.

hmm, the game seems definitely interesting, might pick it up sometime next month. The story also seems pretty well told, I like biker gangs so I’ll definitely find it pretty cool. In a spoiler block mainly cause I also wanted to practice manually putting the spoiler block in on mobile.

From what I've played so far the bike feels fantastic. It was a bit iffy at first, but after spending more time getting the hang of it, it's probably some of the best bike physics I've felt in an open world game. I also like the customisation options too.

 

With regards to fuel management (and repairing while we're at it) I mostly see it as being very similar to the horse management in RDR2. If that didn't really bother you too much then this shouldn't. I feel the way the game handles it is quite forgiving. When your fuel starts to run low the little fuel gauge turns yellow and on the mini map it'll show all the locations of fuel in the vicinity with a fuel icon. It seems to have a pretty good balance between not being too scare so it becomes a pain, but not too abundant to make it pointless.

 

I quite like it because scavenging for fuel encourages exploration of the game world which I think would be a bit lost if you just rode your bike from point A to point B. The more I play this game it starts to remind me of Mad Max (which was also criticised for very similar things to this game).

Also, anyone hear about the slaver stuff in the game? The character you play, Deacon (I believe that's his name) has a history of selling people to camps before the games story starts, and he gets sh*t for it during the game by various characters. There's also a mission that briefly involves some slavery stuff.

 

Maybe it's just me but what the f*ck is with that? When it comes to making a character with a dark past I feel like there's better ways than that.

 

I don't know what you've heard or read, but I can see how part of the game/story could be taken in a darker light than it actually is.  Sounds like context would put some stuff in perspective for you, but I'm not gonna talk about things that may or may not be considered spoilers (I don't think it even vaguely is, but others may disagree).

Been playing this game for a couple of days now. At first I found it slow and tedious, I really wasn't liking it but after about 10 hours or so it started to pick up and get better. I'm really enjoying it now.

It seems to be a trend from what I've seen from people and where I think a lot of these reviews are off the mark IMO. Sure it's a little rough around the edges, but It's definitely NOT a 5/10 game (or whatever Gamespot gave it).

I've been loving this game since the very beginning.

 

Could be because I'm pretty much a Walking Dead fanboy and they nailed to feel similar in many ways, but also like a thing of it's own. It feels inspired by, not copy pasted.

 

The situations I get myself into feel intense and manage to gripe my full attention, to the point I almost feel like I'm roleplaying. In my head, I usually think like "I'm low on fuel, let's have a look over there" "Let's see where that herd is moving. Can I bypass them by going over there?" "Glad my crossbow bolt didn't break" and so forth. 

 

The game is what I've been waiting for since TWD and no other zombie game managed to immerse in terms of gameplay and letting me live my survival fantasy. 

 

There are things that could've been better for sure. The game could've used more customization and outfits, better shooting mechanics, less bugs and so forth. But I'm happy with the product I got. If critics and gamers disagree, so be it. I'm not here to change anyone's mind. 

 

Wolves f*cking suck ass tho.

Agreed.

 

I would say it even feels like a homage so i don't get why it gets criticised for not "bringing anyting new to the table" per say. I would rather a game stick to typical tropes and do them well than to try and be different and fall on its face. I've been taking my time and if there's anything this game nails it's its atmosphere.

 

I was just literally riding around at night and came over a hill to see a massive horde of freakers. It reminded my of the hordes in The Walking Dead. As I've said before this game is a little rough around the edges, but as with most new I.Ps it's nothing a sequel can't fix. I urge anyone who's a fa an of open world games and/or survival horror to give it a go. I don't regret my purchase at all.

My only gripe so far is Sam Witwer.  I personally think he's a bad actor, and I'd rather my rough biker persona was a little less feminine.

 

But hey, if that's the only thing I have to complain about then it's money well spent!  I'm really taking my time with this game but it is looooooooooooooong.  I'd love to know how long it would take someone who does speed-runs.

If there's one gripe I have and it's a very small one I think the way Deacon talks to himself is a bit weird (it reminds me of Nathan Drake in the first couple of Uncharted games). Also sometimes when he's talking on the radio to Boozer or whoever he abruptly goes from talking calmly to shouting at the top of his lungs which is kinda of silly during moments when you're trying to be as quiet as possible.

Hmmm nice bike

I just read that this game is apparently set in the same universe as

Spoiler

Syphon Filter

Even though I don't think it's a major plot point and might have basically been an easter egg to provide some background (stuck it in a spoiler tag to avoid anything if it is though), it's admittedly made me more interested in this game because that other game was awesome and it's nice to see what happened following those games (even though clearly, it isn't a good future and someone even told me that they're kind of disappointed by that because it basically destroys an already-established universe). I'm a stickler for shared universes and open world games, even if it's a zombie/post-apocalyptic survival type of game. I'm glad that it's a long game, too, I prefer that to the standard 50 missions and then being left with nothing to do after it's finished.

I just bought it... I'm about 5 or 6 hours into, I think it's great I'm really enjoying it, it has bugs sure  just like any other sandbox. My only gripe is the loading screens and the big pause everytime a cutscene plays.

Got to play it for 3 hours the other day at my friend's place. Awful Dialogue, Voice acting, story and absolutely uninteresting characters. The missions are repetitive af. The gameplay at its core seems fleshed out. Like the Combat seems brutal and the bike physics or some of the survival elements are good but in the end it simply is pointless and lost in a sea of bad game design decisions. What's the point of having these when I simply have no desire to care because the game is so bland?The map is repetitive with minimum variety as well. Weather system is very good. 

 

The game just feels grindy with no substance or value for the time/money you invest. Glad I didn't buy it. But then again, these games really make you appreciate games like RDR2 or GOW and the effort that went into them far more than before. After these two games the bar has raised a lot as well. It's amazing how all these games cost the same. I think that the critics went a bit hard on it though. To me it looks like a 75/100 game. Mediocre.

I was unsure about it for more than 3 hours, but it's turned out to be a brilliant game.  Some games take more to get into, and that seems more and more common these days. 

 

It may not be a game that you'd enjoy, but you can't walk away from a game like this after such a short amount of time and think you know it.  You've not even scratched the surface.

I would sit down if it was a linear game. But open world games are no joke. If you're gonna make a 40 hour open world game you have to make sure that you have something engaging/interesting for me for 40 hours. I can't wait 4/5 hours every time to get to something interesting. 

 

It's a trend these days with games, every dev is jumping on the open world bandwagon like it's a joke. Nope. Making an open world game full of substance and value for the time the consumer spends on it is a very difficult thing and if the dev fails to do so, you're gonna end up getting a product that you spend 40 hours playing but in the end 30+ hours of it are fillers with no value. 

 

Too many times these days, that I sit down after 5 hours thinking, surely now the game is gonna pick up but nope, it's just a game that gives you the minimum of interesting things in a certain period. So I really can't do it anymore. It's boring. RDR2 is a slow game but it somehow manages to keep you invested with various elements. I could just roam around the map for 10 hours doing nothing story related and I could still see interesting things happen and not get bored.
