Forums - Gaming Discussion - 3 years have passed, how do you still RATE The Last of Us?

Still one of the best games of last or any generation.



Around the Network

Still a 10/10



Originally I entered Tlou in my top 50 games of all time at nr 20. Currently I feel like it deserves the nr 6 spot, just after SotC. Replaying Tlou on ps4 and playing Left Behind and recently Uncharted 4 have only made me more appreciative of what Tlou achieved. It's not perfect yet to me Tlou really is greater than the sum of its parts.

It's probably better if there is no sequel for fear it will disappoint or worse taint all the speculations from the original. However Left Behind was excellent so who knows.

. Seems hard to believe how Joel got so far, eventually becoming a one-man army towards the end. The end didn't please me much either. 

What a strange thing to take issue with, hard to believe how far Joel got?

 

Ending is up in the air maybe but I still fail to see how anyone can take issue with it: the ending is fantastic.



Bought a PS4 a month ago. TLOU is not really on my shopping list.
I looked at a few video clips of TLOU and thought that this game is not for me.
But as it is universally hailed as GOAT I am still curious if I am missing out on something?
I do NOT like cutscenes - I always skip them if possible!
I do NOT like stories in games - at best they are on a B-movie level!
Mostly like racing games, Animal Crossing (skip all dialogue), Fire Emblem (skip all dialogue) and puzzle games. I will probably like No Man's Sky. I have played most Zelda games.

Is TLOU a game for me?

10/10

The best game ever created. The last three years have only cemented the fact.



 

The PS5 Exists.

In short no.

The long answer, nooooooooooooooooope!

 

But in seriousness the game uses the story as a crutch throughout much of the game and if you don't see the story you'll miss out on the experience. And as you don't want the story evidently the experience isn't for you which is fine.



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

It would seem to me you dislike stories in games because they're not always good. The TLoU story is very good, Naughty Dog is very good at character animations and dialogue, and the opening sequence is amazing but the story is also predictable and derivative and for me, a plothole in the middle took me out when I played it years ago.

TLoU is nothing like any of those games listed so it might not be. Still, give the game a shot. Wouldn't hurt.

Actually I think he should get it, so he can lose this bad habit of skipping stories on games, then he'll have a whole lot of new games out of thin air to catch up and play from now on just as well XP

I am a little worried about this "the game uses the story as a crutch". That is what I see from video clips: cutscene - short action sequence - next cutscene!

I have probably seen most plot twists and story spoilers: would the story be good even if you "know" what will happen in the end (I want to cry in the end - I heard everyone does! - I am quite easy affected by sentimental movies)

I really was hoping my son would buy the game as it is the only game he asked about since I bought the PS4. Then I could watch when he plays it (I like to watch others play games that I do not enjoy myself)! I may have to convince him to buy it!

EDIT: 400 SEK (~$40) digital (I prefer digital) and  ~300 SEK (~$30) retail. I will make him pay - and play!
