    Not an incredibly long wait but it's still a wait.

    Eh, I'm in no rush to play this.

    It'll be the first time we'll see the Decima engine on PC hardware. Would love to see what Horizon Zero Dawn could look like on it. Alas!

    After watching some reviews, I don't think I'm getting this anymore.

    It just looks so, soooooo cumbersome to walk miles on end on complete solitude and they said that only after 10 hours in it starts to pick up a little bit and you get better equipment to advance through the world.

    But it all looks so dull. Even the fast travel system looks tiresome.
    The visuals look incredible and the overall experience, by the end of it, might be good as well, but the gameplay part of it is not looking attractive or fun.

    I never thought I'd skip this and consider the Star Wars game instead, but even watching the reviews gave me some open world fatigue. I'm tired before even playing it.

    Agreed. I was so very interested in this, and the story still interests me, but I hate fetch quests, and this looks to be 90% fetch quests. And the mechanics, controls, and UI looks like a convoluted PIA. If it's ever offered for free on Playstation Plus I'll get it. Until then I'll just watch the cutscenes on YouTube.

    I get why people are excited for another Kojima game. But I have never seen one thing for this that made it look worth playing. The game has never looked fun, it has never looked like it really has gameplay. As we got closer I assumed they'd show some gameplay to change that for me, but it has been the opposite for me. Somehow less worth playing now.

    I'm glad I wasn't excited about this game in the first place, because the actual gameplay looks lame. I hope this wont hurt the production of future big budget artistic games

    This looks like hideo kojima crawled so far up his own ass that he forgot games were supposed to be enjoyable.

    Hmm I'm not surprised by the divisive reaction. I got Phantom Pain last day of September and I found it tedious that I didn't really touch it in October. And I'm only really playing it this week because I'm gonna buy another video game this month and I don't want leave a game unfinished.

    This one, I guess I'm gonna buy it 1 year later from now, if I have nothing else to play.

    It's funny kinda really. Even though I have no interest in getting this, I still wanted to know the story out of curiosiy. So while searching on Youtube for a complete cutscene movie, I came across tons of reviews of commentary videos who's title basically says "it's not fun, but I enjoyed it", and that did not compute with me at all. Without seeing the story, this either means everyone puts Kojima on such a pedestal that they'll still call it an "experience" despite not having any fun at all.

    with BF and Xmas soon upon us, I'm tempted to wait on this. At $30, I'd definitely pick this one up, along with the new Star Wars.

    If I do play this I will wait until it’s maybe free eventually on PS plus. Not really a must for me right now.

    I’m a little bit into it, but already it’s more cinematic than most films I’ve seen this year.

    I love the aesthetic side of Death Stranding. I think once the price is reduced I'll give it a go. Should be cheaper when ps5 comes out

    About 5 hours in and it's starting to get a bit repetitive.

    Ive been watching a bit of gameplay and so far I think the main character has the coordination and balance of a toddler and the vehicle's suspension is made of playdoh and dynamite.

    I’m well and truly in the guts of this now....it’s very much Kojima’s version of Neon Genesis Evangelion, only without the mechs. And Norman Reedus doesn’t suck as much as Shinji.

    I just finished a couple of days ago and this was quite the journey. Took just under 50 hours to finish.

    I’m still really intrigued by this, however good/bad the gameplay is.
