Does "The Medium" have any combat, or is it just a walking/running/hiding simulator?

Leave it to cows to call it boring and a walking sim but then go and brag about Death Stranding.

Death Stranding has gameplay.

There's still more walking in that game than there is in The Medium. You go and see a walkthrough and all you will see is walking through terrain majority of the time.

I don't have a pony in this race, but it's basically impossible to have more walking than there is in the Medium.

Which is fine - it's supposed to be that way. But your argument makes no sense.

DS does have a ton of walking, but it's gamified. Constant physics considerations based on your cargo and the immediate terrain. Definitely an oversimplification comparing it to games where the act of moving through space is light on interaction. Pushing up on your analog or W on your keyboard won't get you anywhere in DS.

You know there's fuckall to play when a mediocre title such as The Medium gets this much attention. Even last gen, which was also very slow at the beginning, we weren't talking about games this bad.
