Dead Island was a great game I thought. Aside from the stupid ending sequence, I enjoyed every minute of it. I waited to get it once the typical launch drama the vast majority of games launched today seem unable to avoid was long past. Really, it's practically a requirement to wait at least a month before buying a new game these days unless you like bugs, glitches, and CTD's.
