Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Watched side-by-side, something strange — and likely deliberate — occurs between the first Death Stranding trailer and the second, which premiered Thursday at The Game Awards.

What does it all mean? It means we're getting worked up over visuals for a story-driven game whose story is anything but coherent at this point.

More on Death Stranding is expected from the PlayStation Experience today. We're covering it, and will be carrying the live stream as well.
