Hey everybody, Daltonio here. Was sent this way by Sarah/Amalthea when we were talking about how I kinda got off the whole 'foruming' train but kinda missed it, she thought I might like this place haha. Figured I'd at least give it a shot. Hmmm, about me? I'm terrible at this. Well, my first gaming system was the Sega Genesis, followed by the Nintendo 64 but after that I've been almost exclusively a Sony/Playstation player, really becoming a fanboy around the time of the PS3 (not one of the obnoxious ones though, don't worry). If I had to narrow down a list of favorite games, LA Noire and Life is Strange would probably top the list. I'm one of those people that buys way too many games and then takes ages to play them. Currently playing Days Gone and MK11 despite being garbage at fighting games. And still addicted to Dead by Daylight.

Definitely recognize a couple of faces around here, look forward to Dragon Lord & I disagreeing with each other on every single topic LOL

Any questions, feel free.

Welcome to UG, Daltonio. Thank goodness you're not a bot/spammer, as I didn't recognise your username, although you did use a capital letter. I'm on my phone and don't like using the ACP on it, well I'd rather not. XD

Cool you were recommended by A Amalthea though. Should fit in fine

Did you ever go back/play anything from the PS1/PS2?

Welcome to the community Daltonio! How are you finding Days Gone? I've found that reception to it has generally been a mixed bag with no clear cut majority towards bad/neutral/good feelings about it.

Not a bot last time I checked XD

I played the PS1 & 2 growing up as well, just not as much as when I really started gaming harder on the PS3. Was pretty much addicted to Kingdom Hearts as a kid so my PS2 def had some use.

Honestly I absolutely loved the game. But I'm a sucker for anything post-apocalypic/zombie related (the whole reason I know Sarah & DL is because of my past addiction to The Walking Dead haha). It does have some technical issues (lots of frame drops) but I had a lot of fun with the game and really got into the story. I think most of the average/bad reviews are coming from a place of being worn out of open world games and their formula. Because it doesn't really do anything new in that regard and I think some people are just over it and super bored of going around the map for collectibles, bases, side missions, etc.

Yeah, the lack of pushing the genre of open world games or doing anything new (although I don't know any other game that does the weather system of Days Gone) seems to be the most frequent complaint I see about the game. I think if it gets a sequel it'll be able to come out of the gate much stronger to more people as the ground work has been laid and the developers won't be making an open world game for the first time. I have the same feelings for Horizon Zero Dawn. It's not a bad game at all, but there are definitely aspects to it that can be improved and the reason they probably wasn't as strong as they could be is simply due to Guerilla not having made an open world game before and doing it with a brand new IP.

Thank you Sarry! Been busy with work lately and then using all my free time to play Yakuza so I haven't been on much but hoping to change that, haha.

Hmmm. Honestly I liked most aspects of it so it's hard to say. I really did get into the story and Deacon though so I'd probably say that.

Totally agree with everything that you say. I don't necessarily think that every game HAS to innovate either, as long as they pull off the things they do well, which I think Days Gone does in almost all respects. I'd definitely like to see them try some new things in a sequel though. Another problem with the game (aside from some performance issues - which actually caused my biggest jump scare in the game loool) is that it does take some time to get going and I feel like people may give up on it by then. It really hooks you into the story and everything but that doesn't happen until at least a couple hours in, if not a few, and starts out slow to get you invested in the world.

Your avatar looks really familiar, you may have been on WeTheGamers a little bit before it shut down?

Either way, glad to be here, look forward to talking!

Of course! Grin I pre-ordered it the second it became available haha. I've actually really been enjoying it so far for the most part (except for one part at the beginning of Ep. 2. Feels), Sean and Daniel are really good characters. I'm one of those people who loved the ending of the first season and don't want them to continue it so I was fine starting over with new characters. The last episode was the best one of the season yet so I'm looking forward to what's next. Although I think their release schedule is really stupid. The final episode isn't out until December and the season started like.. last September.
