Looks like Sony can't stop winning.

Game is good. Not great, but every exclusive doesn’t have to be.

Negative reviews?

72 on Metacritic isn’t bad and it’s 78 user.

Not very negative if you ask me.

FO76 is negative.

Day's Gone is probably decent, but utilizing this as the "Sony can't stop winning," point is pretty lame. The game is average, but Sony's first-party sell... They've been on a roll this gen.

From what I have seen, it's got a decent core system with bare-bones content and reviews say story is not very satisfying.
Good for those who enjoy it though.

@lundy86_4: “Sony’s first parties sell”...I’m not implying you’re saying it but I hope you’re not saying that in any negative way like “even if it’s mediocre cows will buy it”....bc that’s been Nintendo’s MO for a long long time now and it’s always been more of a positive thing.

Probably shit, just like how the British do not buy much Nintendo garbage, he's upset about that too.

I hope that's true for Bend's sake or they will be on the chopping block; speaking of which Driveclub also sold well but Motorstorm wasn't that lucky.

It's an exclusive, if there's one thing those PS4 owners live for, it's exclusives.

Well, of course. Why else own a PS4 or any other console other than exclusives? They are useless otherwise. PCMR! :)

That sucks. But we already know PS4 gamers don't have the highest of standards. More generic movie games incoming.

Not yet. Can you play it properly on console? No... so no bragging rights to be had until it can be played properly.

That's what happens when your system has no games. And good that Dreams is on early access or it would have been a second review disaster for the month.

I prefer to play at 120fps, but proper gaming starts at 60fps. It is a basic standard for many years and is not hard to do... unless you play on console that is. 30fps....

The aiming is worse. Sensitivity-wise, one of the worst modern shooters. I refuse to play this without a mouse.

Mouse aiming is better, but I will probably play it on PC with a controller for the character movement and horse riding. As always... you get to play the way you want on PC... unlike shit consoles.

When there’s nothing to buy, you buy something.

Seriously, for all this talk of the playstation brand being a great ecosystem for exclusives, you only hear of the same three or four games over and over again. And they don’t even have multiplayer so the replay-ability factor is very low. The ps4 has been out for what, 6 years now? Pretty pathetic.

HAHAHA, is a lemming trying to bash PS4 exclusives because of one flop?!

What's pretty pathetic is Xbone only having one shitty racing game that's worth playing as an exclusive, everything else flopped or is mediocre at best.

No wonder nobody is buying an Xbone, is crap in all regards especially in the thing it was designed for, games.

Meanwhile PS4 almost at 100 mil lemming, Xbone at what? 40 mil? LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Although the game looks garbo, some of these reviews are politically driven progressives trying to influence gaming. punishing the game for dumb shit like "saving a woman" and "white male who doesn't cry like a bitch".

So good.

Maybe you have a point, but I do know few PC gamers already played RDR2 on their PS4 console and as for me, sure I can play it anytime but Western games normally isn't my thing, so yeah, not missing much and even if RDR2 was coming to PC, I was gonna wait for GOTY edition anyways lol.

I wouldn't mind playing RDR2 on PS4 if that was the case.

I'm sure everyone who pre-ordered it already committed to it. This wasn't going to go down like Crackdown 3, which every Bone-fan claimed to love, but the game made like Nathan Drake and ended up being uncharted on every sales list. Or course it didn't review as bad around the board I guess. The sales for Days Gone should be okay in the end.

@knight-k: One racing game? Hardly. Try the entire Halo and Gears collection - complete with multiplayer and you’re set for an entire generation of some of the best gaming has to offer. Have fun with your one ending story games you’ll never pick up again after completion - hence why this crappy motorcycle zombie game is selling. Ps4 owners wouldn’t know good gaming if it hit them on their soft little head.

Halo collection was fucking broken for the first 3 years of its existence. You better come up with some better examples of the games you keep having to play online over and over again because all the new shit keeps tanking. HAHAHAHA!

The IGN and GameSpot reviews are pretty bad. Not the game. It’s pretty fun. Only complaints:

-Menu is overwhelming at first and confusing, took a few hours to get used to what I was doing and switching on the fly

-bike could be faster, refilling gas tank gets annoying as it doesn’t last long so you’re constantly having to watch where you’re riding

-finding crafting items can be tedious (couldn’t clear out Freaker nests for a mission because I didn’t have materials to make more Molotovs)

-who though R1 as the roll button was a good idea? It should be circle.

How long have you been playing? And look for fuel canisters if you don't have enough materials for molotovs.

And you can swap the roll button with the crouch button.
