I recently bought Dead Rising 4 (because I found a site that sells Steam codes very cheap) and I understand the criticism the game got when it was released (no more psychopaths, replaced by generic maniacs, really stupid way of introducing "survivors", too easy combined weapons, etc.) but.. I'm really having a blast playing it.
Instead of timed events and really scary psychopaths you have an open world and a ****-ton of zombies that you can kill in a huge variety of ways. I basically just jump into a car (model bigger) and rampage around town until it breaks down, at which point I panic and run around screaming like a little girl until I find some sort of refuge (usually the top of a bus or something). Then it's survival time: craft a senseless combined weapon and go to town on your escape route. All the while you're picking up keys and pass cards and trying to take cool pics with your camera.
It's stupid but it works. Also, the main story isn't half bad. At least it makes me want to continue pressing forward.
