Somewhere along the venerable Route 7, in the middle of nowhere, you will find Joe's Diner. As an employee working the graveyard shift for the next month, your primary task is to keep the tables clean no tough challenge at all. Unfortunately, there is a rub to it. The old Diner was built on the site of a former Indian cemetery. Amongst the buried, two rival chieftains lay to rest; while alive, each could not stand the other. One chieftain endeavors only to rest in peace. The other, a prankster both in life and the afterlife, is prone to ruffle the feathers of his fellow chief. Besides your tasks as a waiter, it is up to you to keep things calm and not incur the angry chieftains' wrath. To lay them both to everlasting rest just do your duty. Sounds easy but it is not promised.

    Joe’s Diner could have been a good game. It has a lot of the pieces for a heart-attack inducing horror game, with its eerie setting and mechanics that force you to make your sense vulnerable. If it did something – anything – with its burial ground plot, it could have told a noteworthy story, or at least an interesting one. Instead, all it does is exploit stereotypes to deliver the weakest Twitch scares I’ve ever seen.

    Joe’s Diner is about as dull in gameplay as its dimly lit environment. It’s about as by the numbers as a game about a haunted eatery can get. There are no thrills here, no scares and no reason to spend money on this game, let alone for the insulting price tag it currently has. Avoid or the grumpy spirit of native American Chieftain will get you.

    Nothing is redeeming about Joe’s Diner, though, as it’s a poor execution of a dull idea. It’s one of the worst games released on PlayStation 4, but even then it’s not an interesting enough of a disaster to check out.

A game myJoe's Diner has been a life changing game, When i heard it was coming to the PS4, i was ecstatic that this Game of the Eon. A game my Grandfather has enjoyed would be on PS4. Now its 2020 and Sony has announced, it wont be compatible with the PS5, my heart stopped and now i'm longing for the day of my death and Joe's Diner coming out to the PS5 as a Joe's Diner HD Remaster 1.5 368/2 Remake.

    The gameplay is unique, challenging, and ever changing. The most entertained I have been with a single player game since skyrim.

    People debate if videogames are art. I think... No, I know and believe that this is the best artwork of all time. Better than anything else. APeople debate if videogames are art. I think... No, I know and believe that this is the best artwork of all time. Better than anything else. A masterpiece if you will. It represents a lot of things. This means a lot and everyone relates to it. It is perfect. The duality of life, fear, and death. No game, movie, book, picture, painting, joke, anime, cartoon, or show will ever top this creation. Graphics are the best thing I have ever witnessed. I sometimes confuse pictures of real life, for the game. I even believe that the game is, ore realistic than real life. A gift from the gods. It moved everyone, changed everyone, and made everyone perfect. The controls feel so good. I am going to play it right now. And I cannot wait for the remake and sequel on the PS5. Praise the game.

    this is possibly the worst game i have ever played. i only gave it a 1 because the intro was cool. pick up garbage, throw away garbage,this is possibly the worst game i have ever played. i only gave it a 1 because the intro was cool. pick up garbage, throw away garbage, identify sound, eliminate sound. repeat. i was trying to give it a chance and at least get to the day 5 trophy. NOPE. couldn't stomach the repetition. a waste of 2 hours of my time and 5$ of my money. after slogging through this off and on for a week, I'm at day 24, and my opinion hasn't changed if anything it's gotten worse. Seems now I'm at the mercy of getting a good load out in order to advance. anybody else find it HIGHLY SUSPICIOUS that the all three of the 10 user reviews were on the same day and all by accounts that have 1 review in their history ?

    It's a really bad game, there is nothing more. Go away and do something better with your time! Just play anything else. (like Life of black Tiger...)
