Many modern games are similar to movies, and I don’t mean more realistic graphics. What I mean is the lack of agency: it’s like a player becomes an interruption between dozens of long and glorious cut scenes.
Days Gone is one of those games. I’m not even sure is it’s a good thing or a bad thing. It feels good, it’s mostly fun to play and it can be challenging at times. The story is pretty corny but the graphics is good. This game felt like Horizon: Zero Dawn, except for the fact that the story line lacks the depth and quality of the Horizon franchise. Don’t get me wrong, Days Gone is a good time killer. It just lacks novelty, that’s all.
