Days gone is one of the most confusing games I have ever played. Not confusing in its gameplay or story, but in the fact that it’s way better than it seems. In other words, if I had to briefly explain my feelings towards Days Gone, I’d say that it’s the worst best game I’ve played in a long time. This may seem needlessly vague and confusing but that’s honestly representative of how I feel. So much of this game is great, but it has a HUGE presentation problem. It’s like a supermodel walking down the runway but she keeps tripping and ruining what would otherwise be a fantastic presentation. All that being said, I think Days Gone is worth a playthrough, with several caveats. I played through the game on a PS4 Slim and the God of War edition of the PS4 Pro. The game ran significantly better on the pro, so much so that switching back to the slim was quite jarring. Please understand that the technical issues in Days Gone are omnipresent and won’t go away just because you have a Pro, but they are reduced. If you’re wondering what kind of technical issues I’m talking about, don’t worry, I’m going to go in depth on those issues towards the end of the video, but to avoid spoilers I’ll just say this: Days gone is a blast, but limps along its excessive main quest line without much focus or determination. The average person’s 40 hour run is well worth it just for the last 10 or so hours. But be warned, if you have trouble ignoring or adapting to frame drops and glitches in general, you’ll likely become overly frustrated with the game before you get there. If it were polished, it would be in the running for GOTY, but here’s the thing, it isn’t. People come to my videos to see if a game is worth playing and to hear honestly what its value, strengths and weaknesses are. I have a duty to be honest. My instinct is to just recommend the game because I enjoyed it and call it a day. But I’d be doing YOU a disservice were I to do that. All of this is because after two runs and over 80 hours, I can safely say that the game should be about half the length it is. Buckle in, we’re gunna break down the full game starting… NOW!
