Deep Rock Galactic (PS5) first impressions

I was not born to be a miner πŸ’Žβ›πŸ•·

Here I am trying out another one of January 2022's Free PS Plus games. I mentioned in my post yesterday that Persona 5 Strikers was not the free game that had me excited. Deep Rock Galactic wasn't either, that only leaves DIRT 5 (I'm in love with it). Deep Rock Galactic may not have been something I was eager to play, but I had at least watched a video or two about it before knowing that it would soon be in my library. I was curious, but not expecting a whole lot.

I can't say that I am particularly fond of swinging a pix ax and going deep within a mine to find gems. Sure the end result is shiny and worth a lot of money, but no way in hell would I consider myself a miner at heart. Sure I have family who mined their entire life, but to me, that sounds absolutely dreadful.

I imagined Deep Rock Galactic is a game that could be more fun in co-op, kind of like Left 4 Dead or Borderlands are made more enjoyable when including friends. Sadly I just didn't have any desire at all to play this game more after I finished the first mission, which had to be completed solo.

When the game doesn't have you in the darkness, the graphics are lovely. I am a big fan of all the colors. I was also playing the PS5 version of this game, which means I was able to enjoy some cool DualSense haptics and adaptive triggers. The PS5 version also has a 120 Hz option. The game is smooth as butter. It is also as uninteresting as a dirty sock.

I know there is a decent fanbase for Deep Rock Galactic, but I am not one of the members. You may enjoy playing this, but I really just cannot fathom another second of breaking down rocks and waiting for my flares to recharge. It's a no thank you from me.

HIVE mining sure is a hell of a lot more rewarding than swinging a pick ax.
& no I have not heard that song.

My partner played this for a bit! But he had the same experience as you -- couldn't stand it solo. But he ended up trying it co-op with a friend and apparently that was sooooo much better and they actually enjoyed it!

That’s too funny, you have a full-time deep rock miner in the household now.
