In many reviews, Death Stranding is referred to as a walking simulator, which makes sense as you’re tasked with trekking across the country in an attempt to connect a fractured nation. If you enjoy other games that fall under the category of walking simulator like Dear Esther, you may also enjoy Death Stranding. What ties games like Dear Esther to Death Stranding are their interesting, often bleak worlds and characters.
There’s a prominent sense of loneliness felt in both Dear Esther and Death Stranding along with some ambiguity to story elements pertaining to the main character. The more you play, the more you learn, but you also have to be patient. If you have no trouble with slower paced “walking sim” games like Dear Esther, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter or SOMA, go ahead and give Death Stranding a try.Load Comments
