    I love this fucking game so much!

    Screw the doctors, Joel did what he had to in order to save Ellen Page's sister.

    Come talk to me once you've got that platinum trophy

    <{jojo}>

    Also, Factions is one of my favourite multiplayer games going. Can't wait for Factions 2.

    All I have left are the multiplayer trophies, and I don't think I'll ever get those. Is the multiplayer still active?

    And I agree. I should play it more.

    It's a good game but the whole "OMG MASTERPIECE! IT TRANSCENDS GAMING!" type of reviews are way over the top IMO.

    Story isn't very original and there were a ton of father/daughter type "protect the girl" relationships type of games out at the time. Hell, this wasn't even the only Zombie game to do that around that time (TWD).

    It was a good game, but not some monumental thing that changed gaming like people make it out to be.

    Probably. I only dropped it when Uncharted came out.

    The greatest videogame story ever told, and I suspect that will be told for a long time.

    It shouldn't be touched. Less is more. Sometimes adding only takes things away-- symmetry, for example. When an arc is that perfectly drawn: count on greed to diminish it. Breaking Bad season 6, anyone? Why limit M*A*S*H to Korea? Reboot the same characters in the Gulf War! Hey, let's go full comic and fucking retcon Godfather I & II. Don't worry, it can't blanch the original if it's bad. Nothing is lost, right?

    Right?

    yeah but if we go by your logic then Godfather II should not have been made because its the 2nd arc. And yet against all the odds they were able to make an even better movie with Godfather II.

    or did I misread and you are talking about rebooting like what they are planning to do with Matrix.

    Much of the material for the second film was drawn from original source novel.

    Then we got Godfather III.

    I rest my case.

    + 1.

    The Franchise I jumped from Xbox for and was not dissapointed.

    Uncharted was over-rated, but this... BY GOD.

    Much? You mean at most half? The book (which I read a long time ago) included Vito's past but a lot of it was fleshed out in the 2nd movie. As a matter of fact some of the critics shitted on the movie but it was eventually re-evaluated to be as good if not better than the original as years passed on.

    It doesn't change the fact that it was a 2nd movie which could have been complete shit and made at risk. Paramount actually didn't want Godfather II to have the "II" because it meant it was an "addition" to a story they have seen already. Godfather II was probably the first movie to be a numbered sequel and is one of handful of sequels to be equal or better than the original movie.

    I do not acknowledge that there is a third Godfather movie...

    The biggest fear I have with TLOU Part 2 is them changing Ellie to being the main character. I have a feeling this will take away the charm and appeal of having her as a companion. I love watching Ellie interact with various things while traveling together in the first game.

    I would have liked a second game to perhaps focus on new characters, while Joel and Ellie make cameos or are both NPCs. I'll play it either way but I do have some concerns for now.

    Despite Naughty Dog's uncanny track record I have a strong feeling that you're going to be embracing this mindset again.

    I need to replay this on ps4.. It's been years since I played it on ps3.

    This is one of those games that has a totally unnecessary multiplayer aspect tacked on. Would have been fine as just a single player experience.

    It didn't interfere with the quality of the campaign, and Naughty Dog does MP surprisingly well in games that don't really require it. Both UC and TLOU MP is good fun, and TLOU MP is actually pretty unique compared to everything else out there. It's a nice bonus.

    I have a more optimistic point of view. I have faith that Naughty Dog will do the original justice and create a fine sequel. Will it be as a great as the original or better like Godfather II is to Godfather? Most likely probably not but I can see a solid game review in the 80s that would satisfy me.

    Let's not forget that the story in the Last of Us has been done in before time and time again in books and movies. The plot wasn't ground breaking but how it was executed through the game was and that's a huge vote of confidence for Naughty Dog IMO.

    Wow.... first person to say this and I've asked so many people for a reason. Ellie is (without bandwagon jumping), pretty awesome and conveys a wealth of strong attributes and character traits that I definitely would want my daughter to have (or any female individual).

    You are in the VAST minority, buddy, and this isn't about being against the mainstream/hipster... you just have shit taste it looks like, perhaps even a skewed outlook on women/life itself? Please, please qualify this I'm extremely fascinated with such an odd perspective.

    Why do you HATE Ellie, one of the strongest (non agenda'd, too) female characters in gaming history? I really hope it's not because you get insecure because a female is displaying strength or some other mental weakness such as this. Beta as fuck brah.

    Just please, maybe you have a legitimate reason (like her voice is annoying to you for some odd reason) and we can work with you. Otherwise, what you have stated has kinda DQed you from being taken seriously (just from me, no big deal, but I don't think I'm alone).

    @VitorReem Do you even know what game we're talking about? Here's how dumb you are (fascinated again):

    1: Movement: Smooth, no drop in FPS, no geometry problems, can juggle enemies no problem, pathfinding for AI is above average.... what exactly do you mean here? No one ITT will join you on this one either due to the fact that this is such a fluid game and you clearly are not good at things like this =/

    2: Gunplay: u wot m8? r u aim?

    3: Controls/camera: You understand how 3rd person action games work? No you don't. If you did, then why are you mentioning this aspect that hasn't been critiqued by any gamer or reviewers since this game came out?

    4: You're bad at this game and you don't like it. Or you're just a simpleton. Or you're one of those people who think if they don't like a game it is UNIVERSALLY bad (i.e. fucking narcissistic idiot). I would say fuck off/kill yourself, but this is about a video game (sort of, more about your dented head really) so we'll stick with hoping you masturbate with sandpaper and bleach for displaying such ignorance.

    Japanese studio.... lol

    I don't watch anime. Don't read manga. Don't really know what hentai and all that shit is. I don't know what the FUCK you're talking about. I mean you're 100% trolling (there's videos and Wikipedia), and I'm just warming up my fingers for the day, but I'm going to willingly take the bait here (in the off chance you're serious):

    Find one weeb moment in TLOU. Do it. In fact, qualify your post in anyway and I'll let you suck on my Polish sausage =] Surely you like kielbasa?

    .... and that was a waste of time, but good fun take care all I have to post more often here. Getting restless again.

    I am well aware of that, which is why i even bothered making such a post.

    The reason i hate her is because she destroyed the game for me. Joel cared a lot for her while i did not give a fuck what happened to her, so obviously i could not identify with him or get emotionally involved in the story. She was ultimately just a pain in the ass to be escorted around.

    I did not find her character particularly strong to be honest. I am an admirer of character traits such as sadism, selfishness and cruelty, which is why i prefer female characters like Nisha from Borderlands.

    Legitimacy of reason is subjective.

    You sound like your Mommy issues are coming through (just look at the traits you listed, lmao)

    What a mess of an explanation/justification. Move along, what a confused undesirable.

    No wonder you're of such an opinion you wacky, rebellious rapscallion.

    God, I fucking hate Millennialitis. Stop trying to sound so meta, you look like you're just trying to preach from an Ivory Tower devoid of any rational perspective or knowledge.... you're clearly influenced by other maladaptive thoughts in your head, and it's entertaining to see you oblivious to it.

    Legitimacy of reason is subjective? Jesus Christ kid, are you trying to be an unpopular fuck or is this really how you are? :D
