What brought you to Dbd?

    Was playing Friday the 13th the Game and heard about Dead by Daylight. With how long it took to get into a game in Friday the 13th, the fact that you have to wait for the match to finish no matter how early you die/escape, and the fact that running no-fear Baseball Bat Jenny and "anti-Jason" Chad (anyone who's played it knows what I'm talking about) was getting boring I decided to check it out. This was over a year ago now.

    I used to be a f13 player. Watched YouTube videos about f13, then a few of those people played dbd also. I thought it looked really fun chasing as a killer. With all the pallet breaking and throwing hatchets and chainsaws. Bought the game on ps4 1 week after pig release and haven't looked back.

    My friend bought it for me, and insisted I play with him.

    Reddit did actually. I kept seeing posts from the sub in all and I confused the name with Dying Light which I had played years ago but didn't really like. Eventually I wondered why people were always posting about a game I hadn't liked so I decided to check it out. Came to realize it was a completely different game that I had never heard of before and sounded absolutely amazing. I bought the game that day. That was three months ago and have played every day since.

    Being a great horror fan, the concept was amazing for me

    Agree, dead by daylight is the best multiplayer horror game!

    I was playing For Honour and found Tru3ta1ent on YouTube really getting into the game mechanics which helped me learn a lot.

    Signed up to Twitch and started watching him and he also played this weird looking horror game called DbD.

    Not didn't make much sense watching but his explanations while playing really got me interested, to the point I was watching someone play something I thought was PC only and I’d never get to play, like so many others.

    A few days later a couple of friends mention that this multiplayer horror game was coming to PSN and they thought it looked like my sort of thing as I love horror games.

    3 of us picked DbD up just before Huntress came to console for free; and we got around 5 or 6 more people to try the game too.

    Unfortunately I'm the only one still playing, mainly due to the barrier to entry to unlock decent perks and the spiralling cost of content.

    Every update I’m hoping something changes that will bring people back in.

    Yeah, don't I know it. :) I felt weird having worked at the company DbD was made at and not having tried it all that time (this was around July 2017). People had even told me it was really good and I just never got around to trying it. Wish I had; would have been interesting to watch over its live development. Seriously... what were 40-second gens, permanent hook sabotages and permanent NOED like?

    F13 turned into trash after their engine "upgrade".

    One of the For Honor designers is on our design team now. ;)

    I first found it from some KYF videos that Jacksepticeye, Markiplier, Bob and Wade did (They're pretty dated now, about the time Doctor or Bubba came out?), I got the game but never really got into it. Fast forward 2 years, I'm sick and tilted after 600+ hours of being a support main in Overwatch at Gold/Plat ranks. I wanted to play PvP, but the kind where I don't rely on idiot teammates AND I can vent doing some pretty mean stuff to people. So a game where I'm a supernatural killer terrorizing people, and the most they can do is slow me down or annoy me with pallets or DS? Its Mori time 😈

    EDIT: By mean stuff I mean Moris and doing Killer things to survivors, instead of healing needy Genjis and Pharahs. I want to see one of THEM spam "I need healing" to a Doctor or Nurse.

  • ZerLukasZerLukas Member Posts: 295

    A friend offered it to me and another friend while I was looking for something to play. 3 of us tried it, but only I ended up playing it regularly.

  • ArrowTheGreat11ArrowTheGreat11 Member Posts: 306

    One of my favorite gamers played it a few times on YouTube. Then I saw it was free on PS4 and bought it.

  • WaffleyumboyWaffleyumboy Member Posts: 7,318

    My friend recommended it to me and I was tired of shooting games.

  • UrbanEvadingUrbanEvading Member Posts: 35

    I would watch people play it on YouTube. I did that so often, I finally caved in and bought the game for myself. I’m glad I did, because it’s become one of my favourites.

  • DustinDustin Member Posts: 1,690

    I bought the game because of the Halloween Chapter DLC and only played The Shape for about 6 months. Occasionally played survivor but I really was just playing a Halloween game.

    I got into recently this October. Back in June, I had a friend who was into horror games like I am tell me about Dead by Daylight and how addicting the game is. I started thinking about maybe buying it and giving it a shot. A few months later I went to NYC with a friend and it’s tradition for us to stop by the Nintendo Store every time we go, and I saw it there for the Switch. I bought it but I still didn’t play it until October which is usually customary for me to play mostly just horror games that whole month.

    I gave DBD a shot on the Switch in handheld mode, played through the tutorial and found that I enjoyed the game but wasn’t feeling the controls in handheld. Ended up playing it docked and quickly got into it.

    Then at some point I learned that there are actually killers missing in the Switch version (Cannibal and Nightmare, and Quentin from the Survivors list) and ended up picking up the PS4 version. By then I had already played about 25 hours on the Switch so I knew what I was doing and grinded DBD nonstop that whole entire weekend. Needless to say I’ve been addicted to DBD a lot ever since then and even ended up buying all the killers and survivors, including the new Oni and Yui.

    I enjoy this game a ton now and thank my friend for peaking my interest in it. :P

    My brother. He showed me the game and I rly liked the concept....noe I hate the 200+ Ping and 10 year queue times tho....if it weren't for this it would actually be a good game.

  • StrodeWinsStrodeWins Member Posts: 274

    back a year ago me and my friend got tired of gta 5, and we found this amazing game that i wish we would’ve found sooner to be honest.

    what a great game. i don’t think i’ll ever get tired of it.

  • Nicaria70_Nicaria70_ Member Posts: 6

    I was watching people play "welcome to the game 2" on twitch, and they switched over to DBD afterwards, playing Pig on the game.

    As a Saw fan I was pulled in instantly.

    I was watching a youtube video of someone playing another game that I was thinking about getting. Coincidentally that person was playing with a DBD youtuber called HybridPanda. He seemed pretty funny, so I checked out his channel. Found 200 or so DBD videos, so I watched a couple. I didn't find the game that interesting at the time, but his commentary was so funny that I kept watching more and more videos. 6 months later I think I'd seen about 150 videos of a guy playing a game I was not even interested in. Randomly on a chill weekend that I was planing to spend at home I decided I wanted to try a new game and bought DBD. To my surprise I got hooked instantly. This was last October, so my first experience playing the game was the hallowed blight event.

    I used to be extremely biased towards F13 against DBD, back around 2017. I used to think DBD was a terrible. Until F13 died down I had no horror game that interested me. Until at the start of 2018 a YouTube, HybridPanda got me hooked to this game, and introduces me to how this game really was. I didnt own a PC at the time so I played it on console for a month.

    When my PS4 had a incident and basically wiped out all of my game progress (Besides the online ones) I didn't feel like starting over so I gave DBD and gave it another chance, and here I am now.

    StacyKrugger streams this game a lot. Watching him have as much fun as he has made me give it a try
