Everybody loves these so have at it guys.

They give a general overview of graphics and performance and what seems to be a scoreless impressions review.

Points of discussion on the game:

  • Uses Unreal Engine 4
  • Compares overall graphics to RDR2
  • Dense environment detail and foliage
  • Dynamic Weather systems with wind affecting grass/trees
  • Real time day night cycle
  • Physically based cloth and leather
  • Screen space shadows
  • Proceedural sky system that matches weather
  • Water reaction was least impressive graphical feature
  • Note's some issues noticed Pre day 1 patch

@boxrekt: No one cares about 1 game, they care about comparing multiplats, well cows did until around November 2017, I can't for the life of me think why that would be.

Every games is individual, as in "1" genius and a "multiplat" is just a description for "1 game" that is available on multiple platforms.

lol also I don't think i_p_daily speaks for gamers as a whole nor cows.

As a fanboy you're assuming your minority opinion means too much.

if all you wanted to do was to come in this thread and scream your personal opinion and CRY about this game having a Digital Foundry break down of this Sony exclusive, I hear you but no one cares about your whining.

Its not personal opinion as there used to be a user who used to post all the comparison videos from DF in regards to XB1 vs PS4, come November 2017 that user all of a sudden got busy (he is a cow) and since then they hardly ever show up as lems don't care about the comparisons for the most part, whereas you cows went crazy over them.

Now since November 2017 they have been few and far between because a certain fanbase doesn't care about them NOW.

That's just facts, i'm sorry it upsets you, but as an alt its in your DNA :(

Its a great looking game... It just not a great game, no one really cares about these when the game is mediocre especially if its not multi platform because people love pointing out how good their console version is.

I might pick this game up during a sale later on, but its not worth full price to me.

This is clearly a lie.

Again, you're taking your delusional and desperate opinion and trying to raise it's value by repeating the same thing you originally said as if that changes anything.

I understand you're upset and emotionally triggered whenever you're reminded that Sony still has exclusives but there's no need to lash out with your anger and pretend everyone else is in your pitiful shoes.

It is what it is bro, if you really didn't care you wouldn't have posted in this thread, but here you are crying and butthurt over this thead, so there's at least 1 lemming who cares a great deal named i_p_daily!

Forgive me for trying to inform you, but hey you're an alt & a cow, the worst SW has, my bad for trying to help you, stay ignorant.

You've had 2 people tell you so far that people don't care unless their comparison videos, but carry on good sir.

I don't speak for them but the OP obviously does when he said "everybody loves these so have at it guys"

And yet 2 posters have already stated that most people don't care unless their comparison videos.

So quacknight you & the OP got rekt lol

Remember quack when this alt gets banned, and come back (you will come back) as this-is-not-quacknight no one will suspect a thing LOL.

Beautiful looking game, the GS review should have focused more on the gameplay faults (which could be patched out, or lessened maybe?) and less on the SJW garbage that seem to have affected the score negatively (check her twitter out).

You have never owned me, and with the PS4 winning just about everything this gen it just proves you suck at this, I mean you did get banned again, how many alts have you gone through this gen quack???

But its nice that you are talking about me instead of what this thread is about, oh that's right because even a hardcore cow such as yourself doesn't care about this DF analysis further proving my point in here, thanks for owning yourself again quack LOL.

You were busy playing another forza game the xbox one had shit back then and Halo 5 was officially the last flop on system wars before the meta game died.

Nothing they had been posted haven't you see them? in fact i had even more fun on those specially quoting lemmings who claimed graphics didn't mater only to hype graphics again as soon as the XBO X was announce.

Many of us were having a blast because in order for MS to achieve 60FPS just like in Forza 5 the game looked like crap.

I forgot about that thread on DF Halo 5. I was indeed looking forward to Halo 5, the MP was good, but the campaign was very disappointing. Halo 5 never did show up on PC and this was back when MS didn't get into Xbox Play Anywhere for that matter, so yeah, I don't agree with Tormentos, but he has a point. People did care for DF on console exclusives and Halo 5 is no different then Days Gone.

MY god is like you people joined system war 2 days ago what the hell.

Analysis of single console games had been posted here all the damn time,The order,Driveclub,Killzone,Spiderman,Halo5,Forza several,it means nothing just because a game is on a single platform doesn't mean it can be discuss from a technical point of view even if the game score low,again the game got a 5 HERE which is 22 points under the average it got on Meta,trying to hold to this site score to prevent a technical discussion of a game is not only stupid is sad.

And people don't make me go hunting for lemming defending several xbox one games that scored 5 here and higher on meta.

If you don't want to discuss it or other lemmings stop posting in the thread no one is forcing you lemming and crawl back to one of your other alts. :)

Have about 4 hours in so far on base PS4 and game has been running great, sure will prob notice some performance stuff when I come up against hordes but overall my experience has been great. Sony Bend did a great job.

Days Gone is right up there with God of War 4 for me. Hopefully see a sequel in the future or Sony Bend goes off on a other new IP, they did a fantastic job with Days Gone.

@tormentos: the general population on this forum doesn't care about graphics discussions for exclusives after a bad review from GameSpot rolls in..

That's just a fact..

People tried to hype the graphics for Ryse.. They were met with lolz, 6/10

People tried to hype the graphics for The Order.. They were met with lolz, 6/10

People tried to hype the graphics for Driveclub.. They were met with lolz, 5club..

It's the same with Days Gone.. Beautiful game.. Sure.. But nothing to brag about since it scored a 5/10..

You can try all you want but you used to put up plenty of DF videos when your precious PS4 was winning, but they all but disappeared when the X came out, and your pathetic excuse was you had no time, and people were getting sick of them lol.

Haha DF put up like 20 vids between oct and dec and slowed down in January when they covered everything. How does one make DF threads without DF material? Besides, making all those DF vids burnt me and other out. You wouldn't know since your first thread on SW was last year April.

You would think he learn this by now. Making DF threads isn't easy to do and I admit, I barley watch the latest DF vids nowadays, life outside of gaming has gotten complicated for me personally and plus, I prefer watching DF PC related vids then their console takes anyways.
