I played alot of Friday the 13th and I still do. But when the lawsuit hit the game it was hard to find lobbies so I wanted another game like that. Then, my friend told me about Dead By Daylight and there was no going back after that.

    Death, I adored F13th the game and a friend recomended this one too so... Got it since launch, no regrets

    A co-worker played it in it's opening months and streamed it. At his urging I picked it up

    We don't talk about those days anymore, and I think we agreed to disagree on the balance because his survivor bias is extreme.

    Steam recommendation after Evolve: Stage 2 died. *cries*

    It was free for Ps plus and I instantly got hooked!

    ;)

    It was free and unique (to a degree)

    Was looking for Asymmetrical games after loving Evolve.

    Found F13 and DbD played DbD at console launch but mostly mained F13 until that died in early 2018.

    Now DbD is my favorite multiplayer game.

  • Creepingcam1070Creepingcam1070 Member Posts: 148

    Unique in terms of being the first to create this type of game.

  • S_PandaS_Panda Member Posts: 248

    I watched kaif's group mess around on DBD and it got me interested. I'm working on getting enough people owning it to do my own KYF groups :D

  • artistartist Member Posts: 1,488

    me and my friends were looking for a new game to play together, and it was at the same time it was on a free weekend. we all liked it so we decided to cop it

  • FrostyFrosty Member Posts: 373

    If that is true then yes, I won't pretend to know though. However it was the first I'd seen a game like this.

  • Spooky13Spooky13 Member Posts: 288

    Watched the a couple videos from Vanoss and H2O Delirious, and Soviet Womble's video. Fast forward a year and was looking through a Christmas catalogue and saw it and thought that it looked fun from what I'd seen.

  • PeasantPeasant Member Posts: 3,817

    I watched Seananners and the boys play it. That got me interested right away.

    Back in January (or was it February?) 2017, I was watching Markiplier's RE7 gameplay, back when he was playing it. Became a fan of that game, causing me to stumble upon Dartigan's sins video for RE7. At one point, he says "WARNING: contains spoilers from Blair Witch Project, SAW, TCM...." and I was like "SAW? Never heard of that imma search it".

    And so I did, still rate it as the best horror franchise to this day. That got me into more horror, so I eventually watched all of F13, Shining, The thing (original), all of Child's play, and all of Halloween. A month later, I stumble upon F13 the game on steam. Wanted to buy it until I saw the negative reviews and was like "nah ain't spending 30$ for a hated game". A week later, I stumble upon a youtube video called "Myers vs Jason rap battle: F13 vs Dead by Daylight" and I was like "The [BAD WORD]? That dead game has Myers in it?".

    Luckily, it was back in september 2017, when the game was f2p for 3 days, with the ongoing sale of 50% of all products, DLC included. Played 3 games, 1 as each of the first 3 killers, bought the game + Myers DLC for like 15$, loved it even more months later when Pig came out, still love that killer to this very day.

    Do I regret finding this game out? Yes. Yes I actually do. Not once in my life have I met a community this dense, ignorant and toxic. Not once in my life have I played a game that kisses the toes of one side ever since release. Not once have I seen the devs that took this long to realize what this game needs. I mean c'mon, it took this game 2 years to barely be just below average because they removed pallet vacuum back then. At this point it's average, but still not enough, because survivors are still the power role at optimal levels of play on both sides.


    Will never deny that I had fun playing Myers, Pig, failing as Nurse, playing Spirit and then Legion, but god damn could I go through my life without the stress of playing killer and trying to explain to people that most killers are weaker than survivors at high ranks.

    I saw people playing this game on youtube when it first launched. It looked very cool and different from other online games so I decided to buy it

  • seagl3eseagl3e Member Posts: 24

    Bought it when it came out but was too afraid to really play it lol, then after 72hrs got popular he made me want to play it again so its thanks to him I have over 1k hours, I really miss him.

    I've always been a fan of horror. I grew up watching films like Halloween, F13, and Scream. So, back in 2016 when it was announced that this little game I've never heard of called Dead By Daylight was adding my favorite horror killer Michael Myers, Laurie Strode, and a Haddonfield map all based on the classic 1978 Halloween film, I was instantly hooked. Thing was, DBD was only on PC at the time, so I had to sit on the sidelines, just hoping and praying it would someday come to consoles. 1 year later, it did, so needless to say, I got it.

    I've been playing ever since. Before DBD, I played the F13 game, which I still do. What keeps me coming back is the dark atmosphere, and constant horror icons being added. My second favorite horror icon is Ghostface, so you can imagine my excitement when he was leaked earlier this year, and released soon after. Just the thought of there even being a game like this where you can play as and against these horror icons with real people online blew me away, like it was too good to be true. It was something I only dreamed of for years. I very much look forward to seeing who they add next in the future.

    To be honest Friday the 13th The Game is a better game when it comes to how much fun it is, because Dead By Daylight has alot of frustrating moments. But that doesn't mean I hate Dead By Daylight, when its fun its really really fun but when its not fun its really not fun. Friday The 13th is always fun no matter what.

    I bought this game on Feb/9th/2018 after i quit league of legends on that day i got to a boiling point with the developers and the balance team of that game as it was the same type of balance they would just knock one meta out to bring in another and it was repeat of old meta's like tank meta assassin meta etc.


    From the second i bought this game downloaded it and played it i was in love with it but the odd thing is i had followed the progress of the game since 2016 although i had a really crappy laptop back then that could barely run minecraft so i was not able to play but i got my new computer in early of 2018 which is also was led me to buying dbd.

    My girlfriend plays as a survivor and she kept wanting to me to play but being a victim didn't appeal to me. Once I found out that I could play as a killer I dove right in.

  • gaydavidkinggaydavidking Member Posts: 51

    I watched SuperButterBun's video on it with her friends and it looked so fun that I just instantly bought it. Highly recommend watching!

    @KiraElijah and @AshySlashyVsEvilDead watched H20 delirious and one day bought it. They convinced me to play it but at first I admittedly thought it looked stupid.

    Now they’ve quit and I love this game.

    When F13 came to a end I decided to give DBD a try.

  • Bravo0413Bravo0413 Member Posts: 3,097

    I watched the game for awhile in 2016 and continued to follow DBD throughout the years until it dropped on PS4... I watched tru3, noob3, hybrid, monto.. etc.... and those guys motivated me to play DBD.

  • HeroLivesHeroLives Member Posts: 1,558
