How many times do people need to get tricked by cool cinematics in a trailer?

Remember The Order? No Mans Sky? The list never ends.

If they cant show you decent game play, its because it doesnt exist. This sh*t is not hard to figure out.
This


And most of those good reviews had a ton of negatives in regards to the game play but still scored it high

Almost like they were scared to score it low


I watched a review were the dude had too much gear and fell down

Lost all the deliveries

And had to pick each one up one by one

Every single review Ive read/seen the reviewer insisted the game was good, despite being bored and frustrated out of their mind because of how tedious and repetitive all the missions are.

The fu*k?

This is another false narrative getting pushed on the internet. They tried to say this about Yong Yeaís review because he didnít explicitly state that it was fun. Dude commented on how the traversal develops as you keep playing the game and people interepreted it the way they wanted to.

And since weíre here, this whole narrative of a game has to be balls to the wall action packed fun for it to be good is the biggest crock of sh*t ever. I can name multiple games, movies music that either take long to get going, arent able to be fully appreciated after experiencing it once, or are still great forms of a medium despite not being fun in the traditional sense. Uncharted 4 is extremely slow until chapter 11. Still a great game.

Canít wait till Friday bruh, all these narratives being cooked up gonna go straight to sh*t.

I read both the positive and negative reviews - you can't just settled down with one review and take it as gospel. you have to understand the story from both sides.

overall the concerning issue is that even '10/10' reviews are criticizing the bland and awful gameplay loop. This may be the best case example of 'The Emperor's New Clothes' situation playing out in real life because clearly people are gargling kojima's pseudointellectual balls.
if this game was made by konami or capcom would it be recieving 10's at all? I wonder

Amazon used to use FedEx until they started delivering on their own.

That sh*t makes no sense bro lmfao
Makes sense, you just don't want it to. Amazon delivers sh*t so does Fed Ex and regardless of their previous situation, that's what they both do now. How the fu*k does that not make sense then?

Doesn't matter, game's about delivering BS in the middle of the death-pocalypse w/ cameos that seem unneeded if not unwanted. Conan is kinda cool, but Geoff has always rubbed me the wrong way.

It doesnt make sense because Amazon now delivers on their own. Mixing in fedex wouldnt do anything dummy lol. Thats like saying something is a mix between cheeseburgers and cheese.

The fact that you thought that was a good analogy lets me know exactly why you think this game sucks lol.

Less than 24 hours before all yall empty criticisms go bye-bye!

Ask yourself this. Would this game get any traction if it werenít for Kojimaís name?

This is why I give props to IGN of all companies for giving it a 6.7.

The last place Iíd expect.

A game can be transformative yet not be a 9/10 10/10 game. A lot of peopleís favorite games werenít rated that highly when they first came out.

The game looks stupid. Carrying around stacks of boxes on your back. Tumbling down rocky hills just to have to pick up everything you dropped back up. I don't know. The story line just sounds dumb too. I'm going to have to wait for this to drop and watch some gameplay before I fuk with it. It really looks like a dumb game with great graphics.
