What got you into Dead By Daylight?



  • fluffymareepfluffymareep Member Posts: 634

    Some of the people I watched on YouTube played this and I'm naturally quite into horror games as is. It took me like a year to pick it up, though, since I wasn't sure if it was my sort of game and I wasn't sure if I could pick up on it all that well. It was a lot of fun to watch, though, so I caved.

    I watched Cohhcarnage play the beta back in June 2016, I fell in love with the concept and I ended up buying the game as soon as I could.

    Ohmwrecker is one of my favorite youtubers I've seen him play it looked fun so he got me into the game, Monto and Tru3 kept me playing. (Monto for fun builds and Tru3 for tips and tricks and viable builds)

    Was getting sick of the issues within Friday The 13th Game and lucky me this game ended up being free for PS plus that month so I got this and never looked back.

    I watched a group of German streamers playing this game in the beta version and thought it looked pretty nice but the lobby waiting time was awful. Went to twitch and watched Jendenise and Swind a lot because he was one of the first ones to play music during the stream.

    Since having a crappy laptop i bought the game for ps4 on day one when it launched.

    And now i know how it feels to play a game in second class

    @JiggleWiggle Are you talking about HWSQ by any chance?

    seen it coming to the steam store, bought it on release and the next I bought it on ps4 to play with some of my friends and the rest is history.

    This is HWSQ.

    They played DBD at first together, afterwards Trouble in Terrorist Town and afterwards various games (DBD, TTT, Minigames), under the name "HWSQ".

    Same for me, watched DBD on their channels, was fun to watch, but had no PC to actually play this during this time.

    A couple of friends asked me to play it with them, I had no idea what it was other than the fact that it was a horror game. I will forever remember that day because I almost pissed myself in fear because the first killer I met was a Wraith and I got jumpscared a lot.

    I heard about this game because word on the street was that the concept was similar to Evolve, a game I adored but unfortunately reached a point where I couldn’t find matches. I’d been passively aware of its existence for years, and then after the dedicated servers for Evolve shut down, I found I enjoyed its sort of gameplay and looked for something else to satisfy that itch. I’d decided to look more into Dead by Daylight and, after watching some matches and doing some research (and being on sale), I decided to purchase the game and haven’t looked back. It’s one of my favorite games to play now!

    Well, here is the story (sorry for some errors my main language is not English!)

    We are a group of 5 people all 30+, we all have our life, job and family but from 15 years ago until now when we want to relax and have some genuine fun we switch on our pc and play...

    Growing up the tastes changed, from competitive fps to some more relaxed game until dbd makes his appearance in our free time.

    Was few months ago, bored of our relaxing evening on Sot, navigation and freedom was boring after a while... We turn of our pc, grab few bottles of beer and start to play some old school table game. We had fun, some fresh fun until one of us ask: "is there any game that feels like a table game to play on pc? Something funny and challenging, where is not the balance important but the fun of it."

    After few days of research here we are, all 5 of us. When the group is online we always go on costum match, 1v4? Something can be more fun then this? Laughing and screaming like teenagers, always something new happen, always a story behind a match. This is my story with dbd, more then the competition we love the genre, the pace but even more we love that dbd is something that played with good friends ready to have some fun, well it become a priceless IP.

    Played a game called "Welcome to the Game 2" and watched some people stream it. Afterwards one switched to DBD and played Pig and it looked awesome.

  • NoShinyPonyNoShinyPony Member Posts: 4,570

    @JiggleWiggle @Aven_Fallen

    Same for me, too. I saw them play DbD in 2016 and got the game when it got released for PS4 in 2017.

    I have a better PC now, but as long as cross-save isn't a thing I'm staying on console most of the time.

  • hiChiC Member Posts: 217

    I saw a guy who used to host 24x7 UMvC3 lobbies playing it and decided it looked like a lot of fun.

  • Aven_FallenAven_Fallen Member Posts: 12,408

    Honestly, I have seen PS4-gameplay and with the grind being easier (especially with todays knowledge, I notice it while I am prestiging my Killers that I do not need to have every Perk to just pollute my Bloodweb and can care for them later), the performance on PS4 would have driven me away quite fast. You seem to be more persistent with that :P

    It is btw. funny to see them play DBD (last they played it with Spirit, before Legion), when having knowledge of the game itself.

    What got me into it : Streamers

    What got me out of it: current events

  • EasylifeEasylife Member Posts: 163

    Watching Bahroo play DBD before it was out on console.

    I liked it so when Bahroo was not playing I started to watch Hexy & Pug play instead.

    Then DBD finally released on console so I bought it.

  • NoShinyPonyNoShinyPony Member Posts: 4,570

    @Aven_Fallen It feels like a different world when I'm playing on PC, yeah. Still, I don't want to leave (yet). I just tell myself I'm playing hard mode for now.

    I haven't seen them play DbD for ages. Would probably be super weird to watch now.

  • TAGTAG Member Posts: 12,680

    It was a freebie for PS Plus. Was bored, so I gave it a shot and ended up liking it.

  • JiggleWiggleJiggleWiggle Member Posts: 314

    @Aven_Fallen same! My bloodwebs are A lot more structured and im aiming for what i want and not everything :)

    Yeah well when you played through the rubberbanding back to the hook, i think most of them bugs are minor compared to that

    My admiration of lockers.

  • HoodiedHoodied Member Posts: 12,894

    Originally I found out from Vanoss but it was not on console at the time so I forgot about it

    Then in 2017 remembered about it when I thought this game was Dying light, messed up the name but still worth it

  • NuiveoxrNuiveoxr Member Posts: 33

    Two of my friends who who suggesting the game. Eventually, I looked at gameplay, and I was instantly hooked to the game

  • MegaWaffleMegaWaffle Member Posts: 4,172

    ...Strange I feel like I've always played DBD. Trying to think back all I remember was walking home one night then...well, fog. Thick fog and eerie noises, followed by an uncontrollable urge to T-bag in front of everyone I see...hmmmm.

  • Creepingcam1070Creepingcam1070 Member Posts: 330

    Well maybe the entity took you and forced you to play this game for the rest of your life!

    Shortly after DbD was announced for the Switch (my only console), a friend started streaming his sessions on the PS4.

    Seeing the gameplay got my interest up.

    Seeing The Shape sealed the deal.

    The day it came out on steam I was like “this looks fun!” Since I’m a big horror fan and there were no horror games out at the time but maybe like Dead Rising and L4D but even then it wasn’t what I wanted (except for l4d but it died by then lolol)

    so I downloaded it and I remember playing as Meg, talking to my friends on Xbox who didn’t own the game, and hearing a chainsaw in the distance get closer and closer and it was so terrifying and I felt like I was living a Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie and it was literally the best feeling ever. DBD Had such a chilling feel to it with all its dark maps. Which is why part of me wishes they brought back the moon bouquets because looking back at old footage and clips of the game, it was so much darker and ominous!
