Yea, I'm maybe 2-3 hours in and am loving it. I suppose playing on Survival makes all the difference as I am concerning over everything from ammo to gas to healthpacks.I really don't get the complaints that the first blahblah hours are boring. I was totally engrossed from the very beginning and it was the first game I've ever platinumed. I played on Hard, took my time, explored and looted at every chance, and treated every encounter with the fear and caution it deserved.
In the beginning every single zombie is a major threat but as you progress you'll eventually be gunning down vast hordes with ease. Don't go in expecting to be running and gunning like an FPS from the very start and you might actually enjoy yourself. Days Gone is 3rd favorite game this year behind Ring Fit and Death Stranding.
I don't have the arsenal to deal with zombies directly yet, so unless I focus headshot with my few bullets or hope I can outlast a few with my 2x4, I try to run to safety and lose their attention. It's good stuff and I am fully engaged as I tense up releasing a molotov on a nest and trying to quickly consider how to deal with the oncoming menace. Hell, just making a pitstop into an unknown camp to see if any gas is around is just awesome.
I suppose if you play on a low difficulty where none of this is a factor it could be considered boring?
