State of Decay is nothing like The Last of Us (not played Days Gone yet but suspect different). It is a kind of action game crossed with resources management. You have a small team of people (that you can choose who you control) and have missions that move the game along. During these missions, some people can die (not scripted, just if you get overwhelmed etc) and you can also recruit new people into your camp.In preparation for The Last of Us Part II, I played through the first game, as well as Days Gone. If the State of Decay games are like those, with a really done up story based campaign, maybe I'll try to pick up the Xbox One if it's dirt cheap now. But I can imagine there's a lot of repetition behind some of it.
I didn't travel by foot much in State of Decay (apart from at the start and moving between close buildings). Cars all the way outside of that.In Days Gone, you do more or less the same type of missions. You don't travel by foot much though. You mostly use a motorcycle.
I think that game is so underrated. It's a long game, that took me 2 weeks to complete. But nobody on the Internet seems to like it.
PC and PS4 were a good combo last/this gen as a lot of the Xbox exclusives (including this) came to the PC. Next gen should be the same.Unless the heavily anticipated Silent Hill game is exclusive to this upcoming Xbox console, I don't see the need to buy one just for one or two games.
I think the State of Decay games are also available for Windows, but they don't seem especially groundbreaking. If not, it's no big deal. I'm probably going to have to get a PS5 anyway, as they normally get all of the exclusives, but I think the Xbox is supposed to be more powerful. I don't know what they mean by that...
