Did you actually think Dead Island 2 (Dead Island 4) and Dying Light (Dead Island 3) were going to be any better than the first 2?

Hated the first one. I don't understand how these are popular enough to justify sequels.
If you can't do what's right, you can always do what's left.

the first one was so clunky

your character felt like he was on rusty roller skates that weighed 200 pounds

hopefully they fix that

I think it blows my mind even more that people are super excited for Dying Light. It was literally Dead Island 3 and they just changed the name.

Visually, the game looks really good. But that's about it.

Apparently the internet is filled with people who have knee jerk reactions and take everything at face value... To me this looks good and is obviously still in some development stage before final build with all the character jitters, enemy animations and such, I still see what looks like a good looking game. So long as all the minor issues we see in that obvious alpha or beta are fixed I otherwise don't see an issue with the game.

My issue is that I don't care so much about the supposed improved combat; I'm much more interested in how they are going to flesh out the crafting, base building and NPC's and how the quest system is supposed to replace the rather drab narrative driven campaign story...

Looks terrible

No idea why Dying Light isn't named Dead Island 2

Can we drive in this? Looks like we can but I haven't seen any driving.
