I know the game will be interesting, at the very least. So I trust Kojima, but I’m definitely going to watch.

The cult vibes are strong in this thread. I will be watching to see if there's anything appealing about this whole project.

Kojima is funny and charming, but is poetry ain't selling me any game despite all the curiosity (and hype) around the concept presented. So yeah, I'm gonna scrutinate every single frame. To me, that's already the game.

OP you might have taken a little liberty with that title? Are there more tweets? He’s not really saying trust me = don’t watch don’t trust me = watch.

More like “im doing something new if you want to be completely surprised, don’t watch.”

Oh don't you worry.

I only saw that very first trailer. I still don't know what genre this is or what gameplay features this game has. I don't know if it has online or an open world.

I intentionally skipped all further trailers so I can go in and just be surprised by everything.

This tweet doesn’t even remotely sound as conniving and condescending as the thread title makes it seem. He literally said he’d prefer people to go in blind, but made a gameplay trailer for people who are curious to know more about how Death Stranding works.

Why are things like this allowed when any other time the dramatic posters on this site would be having a fit?

lol colossal failure.

something tells me this game will never be for you regardless at this point.
I loved Metal Gear Solid but if you can look at how recent games have been and trust Kojima 100% more power to you.

After the blunders with Ground Zero and Phantom Pain Kojima has a lot to prove to me.

Yeah I made a similar comment above.

I know the OP didn’t mean anything by it, but we should really strive to chill with the sensationalism. I mean that’s borderline clickbait, he doesn’t say anything about trusting him unless I’m missing a tweet?

That's true. Good catch, both of you. The sensationalism is certainly misleading. I was busy hopping off a bus earlier when I posted in this thread and neglected the golden rule: always read the source material. As such, I developed a skewed mindset. That's on me, but still.

I'll let you guys watch it first and then I'll see if it's worth it. We are very close to release date and I'm already sold into playing a AAAA walking/USPS sim and im not even joking or shitposting, I really like the ideas shown so far. Jury's still out on the story though.

Trust but verify. I’ll be doing everything I can to avoid spoilers but I haven’t pre-ordered or anything. Once I get enough confirmation from independent evaluation that there are characters and a story worth my time, and gameplay that doesn’t get old an hour in, then I’ll go dark. I’m not there yet. I’ll be reading impressions first and if I’m still on the fence I’ll watch just enough to close the gap.

I trust Kojima 100%, GZ and Phantom pain's problems can't entirely be on him (it's clear he wasn't given neither the time or the freedom/tranquility he needed) and I think he's a genius but I'll still watch lol, I just have to!

It’s pretty normal for threads to be made on almost every Kojima tweet and have an inaccurate thread title. Not sure if it’s a meme I missed? It’s stupid though because it just builds more and more resentment towards the game.

I'm sure kojima can handle it with near universal praise to alleviate that

Lol the the words and deeds thing was always bullshit that he made up to backtrack his original comment about Quiet being designed for cosplay and merchandising.

He should have never said that and stuck to his original comment.

You have to hand it to Kojima, he is super good at creating hype. Will be watching as I'm still not sure what the game even is.

No way I am watching it, Im super hyped and already have a good idea of what the game is (at least I think so, lol). Im watching all the trailers though, just this extended gameplay that I am skipping.

Im just not sure if I will get it on launch, Black Friday is a few weeks later and I probably wont have much time to play it, but I am also afraid to be spoiled (Im sure a week after launch, at most, there will be a sizable amount of people here speaking about it openly...).

As someone who isn't sold on this, I'm watching it. Most likely my purchase will depend on what's shown.

He wants us to "disconnect" from the presentation about a game that's about reconnecting society?

He played us like a damn fiddle.

I am watching of course. What I have seen so far does not inspire confidence or desire to play the game. There is a lot of footage we will be shown. I hope it changes my mind.

Takes a honest person to admit it, #goodguy

maybe a slight mod edit and it’ll be good.
