It was fun and had a strong if cult following

zero chance your brother doesnt love it on PC without a framerate cap - I have faith that what they are working on will be compelling

i think it was the first console online game i'd played since halo 2 and i was seriously offput by how lonely it felt, i've always felt like playstation online gaming is largely missing the feeling of community and communication itself that i always find with pc gaming and did find with xbox live back in the mid 00s. that was a significant hurdle for me. if it's on pc and has good communication that would go a long way to making me like it.

Not really feeling it like the rest of y'all.

Now I gotta say, I've never been into zombie anything, and got bored of the game like 3 hours in and never returned to it. The show is pretty well executed so far but holy crap people are overrating it imo

They completely nailed it with the clickers

The set pieces, the prosthetics, the CG environments of the overgrown world

Just absolutely top notch

So glad I went back a couple months ago and replayed the PS5 remastered version
gonna have to drop $70 on this and I hate that I have to.

was sort of thrown with the new idea of the fungus communicating but watching the bts after and them saying the military chasing them isn’t sustainable and the idea of spores working in a game versus a show i agree with their choice

much more fun to watch this way too.

Love how all the gaming nods are executed: tess pushing against the door in ep 1 and exclaiming about how heavy it was, Ellie and the board in ep 2, the
glass alerting the clickers


They know how to treat source material while avoiding anything eyeroll inducing

I loved the change. It's such a good idea. The largest living thing on earth is a fungus:

Fuck the clicker scene was perfect. The sound, the way they looked, the insanely tense build up once they realize they could be around and then the reveal. My wife watched me play most of the game so she was waiting for something to jump out and she almost had a panic attack it was so stressful. Just absolutely perfect.

This made me want to play the game so much more. To three point where I pretty much have to now.

Cliffs on what changed for a non game player
in the scene after the museum when they enter that building where they’re all dead in a circle, usually FERDA aka the loosely military based group(iirc?) tries to kick down the door.

in the show the fungus awakens a pack of infected that you saw earlier and they storm the door
