Sony's oft-forgotten 2019 open world zombie game, Days Gone, is in the news again. This time because it's writer/director, John Gavin, has given quite a few cutting remarks on the nature of the gaming industry to (similarly ex-Sony) creative David Jaffe (Twisted Metal, God of War).

But while the exhortation to buy games at full price is understandable, the Internet never likes to be told what to do.

Is he right? Is he wrong? Is he both?

It may not be full price, but you'll always get my full thoughts...in Virtual Legality.
