When the game was announced I don't think I was all that interested, and gameplay videos, to this day mind you, make it look derivative in many ways. That said, now that I have a PS4 Pro and with the upcoming release of the game it has piqued my interest a little more. From the get-go, Days Gone was never a 'must have' looking game, but a 'hmm, it could be good, maybe!' I am interested to know if the story is any good and if the characters are likable, but most of all, I hope the game isn't repetitive, and the environments are nice to explore with competent gameplay mechanics (does that make sense?) So far, it looks somewhat like The Last of Us from a gameplay and setting perspective just in a more biker-y open world way, and that's an itch I want to scratch if you will.
From the sounds of it, it seems like those that have played it enjoy it, but call it, like I said, unoriginal. I'm guessing the game will rate around the sevens, while some say higher and some say lower. I think it looks better now that I've seen some videos recently, but something tells me it could go either way: surprisingly great in more respects than I imagine, or unfortunately worse than I'm hoping. Small slices of video to go on shows that it looks competent, but as an entire package, I worry it might not hold up. I guess we'll see. Lastly, I could be wrong, but I think Courtnee Draper is in it? She plays Deacon's (the protagonists') wife, Sarah. She's the actress that played Elizabeth in Bioshock Infinite. I guess I felt it was worth pointing out because she did a good job in Bioshock, and I don't think I've ever seen her in any other game before (as well as I'm not sure if anyone had noticed [or cared?])
