Death Stranding is somewhat unique because it makes the simple act of walking in a video game feel demanding. How demanding? So much so that we made a walking guide to help explain finer points of hiking with a silly amount of gear on your back. Of course, failure can also be an good teacher. In the case of Death Stranding, and in the video below, it's also great for a laugh or two.
