For a guy that hates it you sure have played it quite a few times.


+1.  I am always amused by people that say they don't like the game after playing through a game several times or for 100 hours lol.

 

@ OP:  Sometimes he jogs instead of runs in non-combat "Cinematic Areas."  Pretty obvious, no offense.



Prediction for console Lifetime sales:

It's pretty overhyped based on the 3-4 hours I've played. The gameplay itself is pretty solid, but the story isn't nearly as awesome or engaging or emotional as everyone else seems to say. I wanna go back and finish it for the sake of finishing it, but my thoughts aren't the most positive at this point. Glad someone else thinks so.

but... i know im gonna sound crazy but thats how long the intro is, the game only really picks up once you leave Tess, in other words from Bill level and forward.

also you cant really judge a story if you havent watch/heard said story and as of now you have only seen the beggining, and its a really SLOW beggining, if you already own the game you should go back to it.

i have no problem with people not liking the game, not every game is for everyone, but you should at least beat the game before judging it.

I shouldn't have to play through a whole game to determine if it is worth my time or not. I get I am not in the best position to judge, but many games I love immediately grabbed my attention from the get go, and that should count for something.

 

Again I said I am going to finish it soon. Maybe my opinion will change and maybe not, but for all the hype and goty praise I should have had a more engaging awesome opener.

well as long as you get that.

also the game does have a really slow start, if im not wrong d21lewis made a thread talking about the game, and how it didnt grabed him from the start so he stoped playing the game for over a year till he finished it as well.

Yeah i played it on Ps4 great story,good graphics,decent gameplay. Certainly over-rated though


Well, when all you play is CoD and Madden, it was the best thing ever, I'd imagine.  But, what would I know?  I've never owned a CoD game before, and the only Madden games I own (but don't play) are on Sega Genesis.

Erm not too sure what you mean. Graphics story and game play are all good no matter what games you play. But it certainly isnt game of the generation or anything. Its just another cover based combat game nowt special just plays well



I didn't have any of the problems you mentioned.

Although for someone who 'hates' the game you've sure played it a lot...

b or c movie pretending to be a video game imo, miyamoto was right. it's embarrassing the way the enthusiast press has slobbered all over this mess. and it's a mess even on a technical level. the ai is shit, for example. the gameplay is claustrophobically limited. the whole point of games, and virtual worlds more broadly, is to create freedom of movement that one cannot possibly have in the real world. the last of us chooses instead to hobble you far beyond the demands of gravity. it is a chore to play thru.

That's a pretty narrow view on what games should be. I think it's good to have a variety of different kind of games. If you don't then fine, no need to say they are going against the 'whole point of games' though.

Well, I kind of agree with the premise of this post, though I don't 'hate' it, it's still weird that you still played through it three times.

Personally I can't even bring myself to finish it once. And I want to finish it. I had two serious attempts where I played the game for a couple days stretched out over a couple weeks in a row and progressed a good deal, but then I stopped again. The gameplay is just too boring, repetitive, simple, slow and sluggish. I agree it's vastly overrated and the press going apeshit over it, especially with the Remaster, was embarrassing to witness.

It's very unlikely I'll get a hypothetical sequel, because of this. Definitely not one with the same characters and environment, because I fell their story should be a stand-alone experience, it would be lame and would break the game's believability.

Still, the game has a good story, good character development and is very beautiful with excellent cinematography. It's obvious Naughty Dog put their usual quality assurance to work with this game.



I recall TotalBiscuit hating the controls to the game too.



I played through most of it when I stayed at a friend's house for a weekend and I enjoyed it quite a lot, especially the multiplayer, though I know not everyone will like the same thing.



Kinda agree, maybe the game has better story but action adventure classics like resident evil 5 and 4 have a lot better gameplay. Imo
