Title
Kenshi is great. Explore the world with a band of hardened vagabonds, trying not to become dismembered or eaten (or even worse, caught NOT PRAYING to Okran), this game is extremely punishing. Once you learn some core mechanics the game becomes much more playable but the first few hours will have you scratching your head on how you are supposed to walk between cities without being eaten alive or roughed up by a group of raiders.

After you learn the basics, you can set out and recruit other travellers to help you gather resources and advance in technology as you build a little city of your own. It's incredibly hard to actually keep your band alive, so don't get too attached.

In my opinion, this is one of those games where the journey is so much more important than anything else. Because honestly you probably won't get very far before being completely destroyed, but that's okay because the world of Kenshi is totally ridiculous and hilarious in its intensity.

    Kenshi is a game that takes one of the most bold elements of an RPG and mashes is together in the most irritating way possible.

    There's a lot of amazing game in here. Everything I see and read indicates that I should love it. I just wish that when I played it, I experienced any of that.
