The first sequence in winter was very peaceful even though Ellie was hunting a deer is was for food not for the lulz. So your peacefulness score should be at least 3/10 as the early winter sequence is much longer than the giraffe scene.

I completely forgot about that part. Guess it was not memorable for me then. But, while it wasn't very violent, I wouldn't really call it peaceful, especially considering the context of what happened. (Spoilers) Joel nearly died, and there is little or no food (I assume), and Ellie is in a cold forest looking for food, while she is more or less alone. And that is excluding that she meets a cannibal pedophile (or nutcase, he may have not been a pedophile, just raping) soon after...

But it also showed Ellie in a strongly positive context, capable and determined. The first spoiler was in the previous chapter so doesn't count. Also with the second spoiler, at the time you are playing the early part of winter it all seems very friendly and cordial and you appear to be helping with the first spoiler. That subsequent events taint that early encounter does not detract from how you feel (cautious, suspicious but hopeful) when you first come across it. So it still deserves peacefulness points.

I still wouldn't say it is very peaceful, especially if you're looking at it from Ellie's perspective.

My favourite part of this game is when Joel strangles to death a tied up enemy, then proceed to club someone handcuffed until his skull is reduced to fragments. I love when characters show their evil, sadistic side.



a review is practically just an opinion (or bunch of them), possibly with a little actual "critique" in there (legitimate criticisms, hard-to-debate observations about the game and such)

so I think it's fine if someone notches a game on things that are intended, it's just not really the game for them, which is a shame *shrug*

even "professional" reviewers aren't really objective/reasonable/have legit criticisms most of the time :



Good review OP.

I'm going to make these reviews next.
Mario is too violent, he beats up turtles!
3/10

Zelda is too violent, he beats up vases and cuts grass!
2/10



Maybe the op shouldn't play M rated games? Just a thought...



Why would you post a review for an M rated game if you're going to reduce it's score because it's violent...
