Some games aim to be fun, others thought-provoking. Kojima's aim with Death Stranding: make you feel very lonely. Oh, and it will make you feel lost as well. I guess being lonely and being lost kinda go together. Whatever the case, if you like feeling lost and lonely, then Death Stranding is the game for you. In fact, the game can be so stressful and depressing at times that Kojima gave protagonist Sam his own private room he can escape to. Here, he can take funny selfies, go to the bathroom, try on different outfits, shotgun beers, and much more.
"Death Stranding is the game you feel very lonely during playing it," said Kojima on Twitter. "The nature surrounds you is so beautiful, but also relentlessly tough, the mules force to keep fearful tension, and the BTs are so dark & scary, gives you stressed. That’s why this Private Room is necessary."
At this point you probably don't need me to tell you this, but, Death Stranding is really weird. In fact, Death Stranding is so weird that we have an entire article dedicated to highlighting some of its weirdness.
