Dead by Daylight Discussion Topic

Recommended Posts

Just played this for the first time two days ago and I have to say... Eh, I didn't really care for it. Presentation wise, it has a gloss to it that the FRIDAY THE 13TH game is lacking, but gameplay wise it's just so simple, with the exception of the overly complex perks and levelling system.

I much prefer the wider range of options for how to approach things in the FRIDAY game than the comparatively simplistic gameplay of DEAD BY DAYLIGHT.

I don't think it's a horrible game, I just don't think it's for me. Which is a shame, because with Michael and LeatherFace both in it, I'll probably end up supporting it anyway.

I actually just bought it. It's not bad at all but the whole hook thing still grinds my gears.

The hook is pretty stupid, it seems really out of place but outside of that I don't have any complaints yet. I enjoy the mechanics of the hook, just not the visual representation.

The lore helped me cope with the hooks. It's actually a cool concept that I dig. I still hate not being able to gut people as Michael though. It just doesn't feel right.

I don't care about hook ,the problems is that we don't have any other options rather than the hook to kill people, but is cool i just alternate between the f13 and dbd so i don't get bored

There is an offering where you can kill the last survivor by your hand. But the kills are "meh" and there's only one for each. The hag kill is cool though. But I like variety. It just so happens F13 has a good variety of kills. Its just the choke and KO spammers that annoy me.

i might play dead by daylight if they added ways to kill without hooks or end

There is a perk that let's you kill the last survivor with your own hands. But it's a consumable and only one kill animation per killer.

Not enough for me.

I enjoyed the free weekend so I bought it. :) I really like the length of matches and the leveling system. The perks feel useful also. Performing kills would be fun but it doesn't bother me as much as I thought it would. Some of the kills in Friday the 13th are tied down by long animations and it became people spamming the choke and head-punch. I know I'll get tired of generators at some point but not having to open any fucking drawers has been pretty nice. ;)

They wont, the new moris are amazing though you should look them up. Anyway the game isn't really meant to be gory and violent like dbd.

I've been watching a ton of Let's Plays and I'm torn. Part of me wants to try this game out. It seems to have a frantic Quake 3 vibe. I was thinking it may be fun to play every once in awhile as it seems different enough from Friday the 13th. 

 

It just seems like it could get tedious VERY quick.

It's very different from F13th and like watching a Let's Play of F13th, much different playing than watching. Has a steeper learning curve than F13th, which would probably lend to your want of a frantic vibe. I can't play it for hours and hours straight without a friend, but it is a nice 30 minute to an hour break between my usual games when I go solo.

Here are my toughts on DbD...i think F13 is the better game.

From what i've seen of both games,DbD doesnt seem as fun as F13.

F13 as more contents,bigger maps and more ways to kill a counselors compared to the boring hook mechanic.

It's like comparing COD (DbD) to Battlefield (F13),COD has shorter map and a simpler gameplay,while Battlefield as bigger maps and a more diversified gameplay experience.

Here's a video from a guy who explain some of the differences between the 2 games...

Also one more thing that give me doubts about DbD is that the devs keep pumping their game with iconic horror franchise killers,as if it's the only thing to keep DbD alive,how many more horror characters licenses will they try to get their hands on ? Who's next, Ghost Face ? (from Scream)

It feel like it was not too long ago that leatherface came out and suddenly they already announce and release Freddy,seriously ?

Well i wish them good luck for them to try to get their hands on Jason,but i doubt it will happen,and if it does happen i tell ya it's not gonna be as fun playing the character in DbD compared to F13.

I'm trying to like Dead by Daylight, but geez... Generators and hooks. Generators and hooks. Generators and hooks. Circles and circles and circles. Boring.

I have to agree. And the thing I hate the most is that they keep adding all the major licensed characters: Michael Myers, Leatherface, now Freddy Krueger. 

I'm sorry -- but these guys DESERVED THEIR OWN GAMES, not to be thrown into the "Generators and Hooks" game. 

I would have rather seen them in the upcoming "Last Year" game instead of the unknown killers whom currently populate it -- and DEFINITELY instead of in DbD.

I know, right? Michael fucking Myers limited by a hook. Freddy Krueger, the owner of the most iconic death scenes in the story of horror movies LIMITED BY A HOOK. Nah, man. Sounds pretty lazy to me. 

When I hear people saying that DbD is better than F13 I'm like WHAT??? Am I missing something? I can play F13 for hours, but Dead by Daylight got me bored after 3 or 4 rounds. Nothing new, nothing funny. You can't communicate in-game, you can't use weapons, you can't dance (lol, just kidding here) 

Oh, I'm excited for Last Year, too bad they keep delaying it :(

Actually in Dead by Daylight when you get higher in levels you don't need the hook to kill if you get a certain perk or something like that sometimes. Also Freddy jumpstarted new life in this game. Wow so much fun to play with as a survivor going against Freddy or as him. Also his location is one of the best and most fun. Friday the 13th better step there game up because honestly i grew tired of Friday. Too many bugs in the game that ruin it. Dead by Daylights once again is number one.

I'm on PS4 if anyone wants to play sometime.  I really enjoy DbD.  It has grown on me.  I like the leveling and perk system.  You get to choose which route you want to go.  Maddogg_8121 for my psn tag.  Hit me up.  My first survivor is nearing lvl 50 now.  I won't prestige her til I get another one leveled up, but let's play.

DbD sucks.

I bought it ONLY for the TCM, Halloween and Freddy DLC's.

And because the price was 50% off for Halloween.

I played maybe 2 hours since i bought it i i don't feel like playing it.
