    My response kind of seems irrelevant after reading this thread and realizing it turned into a sociological discussion on the world and its relation to zombie apocalypse games...

    Agree with you on Far Cry but I think Days Gone and World War Z look about as generic as it gets.

    To each his own. I really think Days Gone will be great, but I also think it could burn me similarly to No Man’s Sky. May wait for reviews to determine if a price reduction will be in store.

    Probably not because I only intend on buying one of them. At this point in just happy zombies games are starting to go out of style after like 15 straight years of them.

    You might be right. It could be the next Horizon Zero Dawn. Open world combat game where you set traps but instead of leading giant robots into them you lead hordes of zombies.

    I think it looks like its going to hit that Walking Dead audience better than any of the other games.

    I keep hearing mixed reviews from people online. I prematurely bought Mad Max, price reduced like a month later.

    Mad Max is one of most underrated games in recent memory.

    I got Mad Max for free on PS+ and never gotten around to playing it. One of my friends did beat it in a weekend and said that it was great but...well....I have Apocalypse Burnout so unsurprisingly I havent played it much.

    The review I'm hearing with Days Goen is that its a solid game but the gunplay is junk

    A nice depressing movie all right.

    it depends on how it happens. If the radioactive fallout from a nuclear confrontation is bad enough, people would need to hang inside their bunkers for decades..

    For me. I can't play them all so I pick a few I like.
