For Millennials. By Millennials.
We can definitely call the current era as an Era of Games. With continuous developments in technology and graphics, games are really changed now. The 90 kids will remember Atari classics. Video games have developed so much that the brains behind the game now need to create a full script for an unending movie. E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) recently wrapped up for the year 2019. The game that drove everyone crazy was Cyberpunk 2077, starring Keanu Reeves. Gamers were already comparing Cyberpunk 2077 with Death Stranding, and now they have got another bait for the comparison.
Why People Compare Cyberpunk 2077 With Death Stranding?
Both the video games appear fierce, something to fuel the needs of gamers. While Cyberpunk 2077 a role-playing video game developed by CD Projekt; Death Stranding has the brain of Hideo Kojima behind it. Cyberpunk 2077’s main character V is severely customizable and it will have Keanu Reeves as a side-kick. (I wanted to be Keanu Reeves, hope the game lets us customize ourselves as one). It also appears to be the most awaited game due to the bright graphics. The game is also adapted from 1988’s tabletop game Cyberpunk 2020. Involvement of Keanu Reeves in the game was a huge surprise for all as it was revealed during the E3 2019. Reeves himself was present at the event. (Talk about some serious marketing strategies).
On contrary, Death Stranding has been killing us with the teasers from last few years. The actors and characters were revealed one by one. Death Stranding features Norman Reedus (from the Walking Dead) as the main protagonist. Obviously, they had to cast a perfect antagonist for Reedus; Mads Mikkelsen (from the Hannibal). I was already sold after the teasers, soundtrack and the cast of Death Stranding. However, some people have described the game as dull and flat. They say the graphics are a little off and Kojima isn’t really saying anything.
