Death Stranding was one of the most anticipated games of the last year. Starring Norman Reedus (most popular for his role as Daryl Dixon in The Walking Dead) as Sam Bridges, the game is set in the future where a mysterious explosion has started the unknown events labeled Death Stranding. Sam must then journey across the land, fighting off creatures created by this explosion to save mankind from impending doom. Hideo Kojima’s creation won many awards at The Game Awards and Dice following its PS4 release in November 2019.
