The general consensus on the game seems to be story 10/10, gameplay "divisive" since the actual gameplay is pretty unique

The criticism about the gameplay was enough to steer me away from it being a day 1 purchase. Which works for me since I already have more unplayed games than I have time for. A similar thing happened with Days Gone with me. I'll play it eventually, and at a discounted price... and I think Death Stranding will end up being the same for me.

It's gonna be one of those games that divide people

Honestly, I would have bought it if I didn't import persona 5 royal that and red dead redemption 2 on pc, too many games this month really

So Hideo says his inspiration for Death Stranding, a game about attempting to unify a divided nation.... Was Donald Trump and Brexit....

Let that sink in. So apparently Based Kojima bought into the whole Globalism thing, even tho his prior works were Anti Globalist...

Yea, I heard the same about the gameplay and that it might be a slow burn for some people at the start. However, I am still inquisitive, and I might not play the day of release. I'll still be playing it during the weekend. It'll certainly be a game unlike any other.

Well, I am downloading the game to my PS4 now. I cannot wait — also, @GodEmperorDaggerfella, interesting read, thanks.
