Script, acting, graphics, gameplay, animation, pacing, tone, maturity, control ... Everything.

But like I said, RE4 is still one of my all time favourite games. Sometimes you just have to recognise genius. If TLOU was a film, it would have multiple Oscars written all over it.

I agree, but what have each done for gaming?

LoU reinvigorated AAA survival horror and story telling

RE4 provided the foundation that all 3rd person shooters use today

- I voted undecided bc only time will tell which game I prefer more.

It was not suposed to be that :( and i dont think it was... it was more survival...

I also dont see a huge differences in 3rd person vs first person shooters TBH except for QTE and every one hates those now a days apparntly.

TLoU has put story telling in the foreground much like MSG did a while back but the story here is so much more powerfull and the acting is so beliveble that the emertion was complete. I have never had that happen to me before... (with no spoilers) I was acting to do things because I felt like I was a part of it.... i cant explain it without spoilers :(

I think thats what it did. I dont know if anyone will be able to replicate this again... Its not a gameplay mechanic that can be copied next year... its true genious

         No.


Then how could you answer "Yes" in the first question?

         Because you are the only one  so far that thinks the game is atrocious in this thread.

You've got a point there.

Hmm I don't think the poll should be so lopsided. There isn't a clear cut choice IMO. People must still be coming off their high from LoU or they haven't played Re4. Either way we should repoll down the road in a year or so.

I think it goes beyond genre though. This is a story about two people and how their journey effects them. The setting is actually there just to give the characters a reason to evolve. That's what's so incredible for me.

EDIT: Forget it.

Absolutely

The story is the focus of The Last of Us

Meanwhile gameplay is the focus of RE4

Yes, that's a very good way of putting it.
