It's on sale for $19.99 right now. Bought mine off the PSN network and played about an hour. The graphics are really good, and I like the movement and gameplay so far. The story and the environment seem very intriguing. Hopefully it will keep my interest. Have you played the game, SW? Is it a good game in your opinion?

I bought it for full price. It’s definitely worth 20 bucks. I got the platinum trophy.

it's mechanically pretty damn sound but in terms of peaks and troughs of excitement, intensity and action to keep your interest, there basically are none. the game pretty much flatlines from the start after the intro and rarely flickers up beyond that. there's genuinely very little of note that happens.

then there's the fact, and it is a fact, that this is a zombie game that simply isn't scary. the hordes have the potential to be - a scare through sheer volume in numbers of enemies, but they're never really leveraged in a way to make use of that potential. occasionally you'll have a moment out of nowhere with them that gives you a little flurry of excitement but then the game quickly falls back to into its mundane rhythm.

having said all that, i still preferred it over ubisoft's open world games and spiderman, but it's nowhere near the standard of hzd

I played the first 5 hours or so when my brother got it. It was alright - kind of goofy characters.

Personally I don't feel like going back and playing more.

$20 is probably a good price for it.

Beat it. Got the platinum. I liked it and it is better than its Metacritic average imo. I keep flip flopping between Days Gone and Resident Evil 2 for my 3rd favorite game this year. RE 2 is so polished , but Days Gone stands out in its own way - the bike , the hordes , open world/weather , and how all the different animals , people , and freakers interact with one another. It's a bit rough around the edges , but overall a gem.

If your a score whore who needs metacritic or other reviews to tell you if a game is good or not then don’t get days gone.

However if you have a brain cell count that is over double figures,like good looking open world zombie games with a decent story line then jump in

@bluestars: Having a braincell count in double figures would still be pretty bad. Guess I found out what your problem is. "HaH".

Not... yet. I know it's cheap right now. But, if it's bad, I don't want to dedicate a lot of time to a game that's not going to come together for me, because I know it's long.

Fav. Game of the year. Pretty long game(pacing makes it worthwhile), story is good some gritty/wtf moments. Then overall feel of the map and weather just make it even better, just very grim. Besides missions, just going out in the environment to gather resources has to be planned. Sh*T can hit the fan quick if you're sloppy.

Game didn't score well critically, but was best game i played this year.

Also, forgot to mention, devs. Constantly updating the game with fun events outside of campaign.

Haven’t played it myself and it just doesn’t seem like something that I’ll ever play to be honest. There’s just way too many other games that I’d rather play instead.

It’s been $19.99 since this past Sunday but I actually got it for $40 when it went sale back in June. It’s a good game. Fun and decent story but nowhere near as good as Horizon: Zero Dawn & God of War 4 combine. For the price $19.99, it's worth your time indeed.

Last I checked it scored 5 here, so it simply cannot be good unless you have shit taste. Isn't that the narrative that is frequently used? ;)

Its an alright game and I have enjoyed what I've played so far. I rented it and have a lot of hours in. Not bad at all but can be a little slow. I did get tired of trying to farm credits (hunting/collecting ears/plants) to buy upgrades. One thing that bugged me however; I am not a big fan of the bike's gas mechanics. Even upgraded to the largest tank, it runs out way too fast. It takes a little joy out of exploring because I was always worried about it. If they tweaked it to a more realistic usage, that would be awesome.

For $20...definitely worth it!

A little tidbit....Days Gone is the aftermath scenario of "what if we didn't stop the virus from releasing" from the old PS Syphon Filter games.

Bought it when it released and enjoyed the game a lot. It does a little bit of everything in terms of genre good but not great. Props to Bend Studio though for staying on top of the game and pushing consistent updates.

Days Gone is a great game and would be on my GOTY list...

If it wasn't for its god awful performance. Seriously the game feels so unresponsive it's a crime. I heard it's even worse on base PS4.

Game should've been 720/60 instead of reconstructed 4K and barely hitting 30fps.

I just bought it today on psn. It's honestly a lot better than I thought it was going to be! It's like GTA meets Last of Us. Definitely an under appreciated gem.

@Pedro:

Apparently not, because going by that scenario UC4 should've been praised and worshipped, but depending on who you asked, it may as well be classified as one of (if not) the most hated and loathsome games to have ever debuted.

Bought it for full price, but wasn't enjoying myself after about three or so hours. I dont think I gave it a real chance though. I started that right around the time I picked up God of War, and really, there is no comparison lol. I'll play it someday.

I bought it brand new, played it through, and then sold it right away because for me there was no appeal to replay it. I didn't really like the main character and the story never really interested me all that much. But it was still an OK game, and had I only paid $20 for it I probably would have thought it was worth it.

It's a great game but it takes a long time to get going. The main protagonist is a complete dickhead though, a grown man with a baseball cap on backwards thinking it looks 'cool'. Total twat.

It's worth persevering with though, if you can get past probably the worst main character in a big game this gen outside of Wolfenstein Young Blood.

@SolidGame_basic: Days Gone would have been a really great game about 4 or 5 years ago. I think its biggest issue is that the developers started making it with the trends of 2013-2014 in mind, without thinking forward in any way.

Keeping that in mind, I enjoyed it thoroughly and if you're looking for an open-world that plays roughly like The Last of Us and don't mind an incredibly mediocre story, you should have a good deal of fun with it.

@IMAHAPYHIPPO: That's a good point. The zombie market has been pretty saturated. Had Days Gone come out, even like 2 years earlier, I think it would've been better received.

It should be winning tons of GOTY awards but IGN and the rest of social justice game industry decided they didn’t want a “straight white male” winning this year.

Read all the reviews and thats all they complain about.

But when I point out the hypocrisy of “straight white males” like Link and Mario winning GOTY, they go silent and “but Nintendo”.

It had nothing to do with that. I'm about as anti-SJW right wing conservative as you can get and I didn't like the game. It just wasn't all that great.
