True. However, I've always find it fairly easy to avoid such things. I had Endgame ruined by ads on VGC though. And a UFC fighter ruined The Last Jedi for me. That blow was softened however, when upon viewing, the movie ruined itself. I can't say I've ever had a game spoiled though. Lucky? Careful? A bit of both maybe.

I actually lucked out with TLoU. I was able to buy it for the PS3 and not finish it. Then buy it again for PS4 and get to the end without spoilers.

With games like MGS4, some guy actually went through the trouble of posting spoilers on my wall (a banned user named Raiden Saves Snake). Somebody messaged me a huge death in Gears 3. And a gif of a lady smacking her ass spoiled Star Wars TFA while I was on my way to see it. Same with Logan.

It's usually a fanboy that goes out of their way to spoil things for a game console or franchise they don't like. And usually it's a big anticipated story based game.

I got off of all social media almost 5 years ago, so that has helped big time. Clicking on the Twitter feed of UFC fighter Colby Covington, who had spoilers to TLJ pinned to his feed is how that one happened. I was never personally targeted either. All the way back to MGS 4 and Gears 3? Yeesh. You've had bad luck.

That was the worst one. I had just worked a 12 hour shift as a cop. Then when I got off, some guy was hiding in the woods and they wanted everyone to come in and look for him. I ignored the call and waited at my local Walmart from like 8pm until midnight. There was a special deal where the 80GB Metal Gear PS3 bundle was "Just $500" and they gave a $100 gift card with the purchase of any Blu Ray player (which included the PS3). I got home at about 1am just in time to connect the system, update it, and go to sleep before my 6am shift the next day.

Then, along came THIS asshole: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/profile/25945/raiden-saves-snake/

Oh geeze. When you said banned user on your wall, it didn't even register with me that it was a VGC account. That's nasty. If it helps, I was battling fruit flies with Lysol in vent in my bathrooms when I finished MGS4. Like, right when i finished it. My neighbor had an infestation that spilled over to my place, and heavily perfumed Lysol was my defense. I finished it the game under duress, got sick, and retreated to my mom's place at around 3am. And yes, that place had vents that connected the bathrooms, so I often smelled my neighbor's shit. I think the architect was Ivo Shandor.

FF7 is pretty good, but it doesn't come close to TLoU.

Hope you don't have unreal hopes for it.

And are you really that excited for Cyberpunk? Last time I didn't get your hype for a game because I have none I was really, really wrong (Nier Automata), so I'll keep more of an eye for it from now on.

Well to expand further into why FF7 is at the top of my list.

I have kept myself on the dark regarding TLOU II (i didnt watch any of the new content that was recently shown), i dont even know what the story is about so its hard to be excited when i havent seen that much, and as i said before i didnt play the original FF7 and i have spent almost 2 decades at this point listening to people talk about how awesome it was, im also more into JRPGs than i am into survival horror games and add to that the fact that i have my bias as well since i do tend to enjoy japanese games more than western ones in general, (and i repeat "in general" since there are obviously many exceptions).

however i understand where you are coming from since i know first hand the quality of ND and how they keep surpassing my expectations, and thats why at the end of my comment i said that there is a good chance that once i have played all the games TLOU II will end up being my favorite, im just simply not that excited since i havent seen that much about the game (which is great for me because the game will have an easier time surprising me and surpassing my expectations).

Regarding Cyberpunk 2077.

I dont know if you do but i enjoy the GTA games, and Cyberpunk basically looks like a GTA game on a much more interesting setting, with better looking gameplay, way more customization, more interesting story, better sidequests in general (if i can judge it based on CD Project Reds previous works), a city that is going to be much more interesting to explore due to the setting, and a ton of RPG mechanics that i love in games.

Also i love the fact that you did enjoy Automata, (its still is my favorite game this gen).

You know I also love JRPGs more than any other kind of genre, and even as FF7 is a good game and TLoU is not a RPG, at least to me, there is not even a comparision.

I know you REALLY hate any kind of spoilers so I get you are avoing TLoU2 spoilers, but judging by the first game alone, TLoU is so far ahead...

That's my opinion, of course.

I like GTA, quite a lot actually, but mostly for the fun, and Cyberpunk has not really got me any GTA vibes, but I'll keep an eye for that, as I know we both usually like mostly the same games. CD Project games reeks of boring gameplay to me tho.

Nier Automata... thank you very much.

I still remember how bland it looked to me and how unnapealing anything but the gameplay looked, but boy oh boy how damn good that game is. Definitely a masterpiece.

Not my favorite game this gen, but one of the four to get a perfect mark from me regardless. Worth every single second.



It certainly deserves to if it does. Obviously we don't know for fact because no confirmation from Sony themselves, but I wouldn't be surprised.

Considering your luck I would preorder digital copy and play from midnight while being off internet 2 days before and until the end of the game.

But I have worse luck than you as I spoil myself unwarrented. Usually before 25% of the game have passed I more or less already know the end and usually get darn close to it.

Like I knew the truth about Itachi by the time he showed up on konoha for the first time (I suspected before, but with his showing up and them the backstory of him I had certainty and was ridiculed for like 5+ years for defending the point).

I actually edited my previous comment to make it shorter and one of the things i cut out was the fact that i found the gameplay of The Witcher 3 boring, both when i watched the trailers and when i finally played it (so i understand where you're coming from), however the gameplay in CyberPunk 2077 that i saw from the trailers actually looks good (it seems to be a solid shooter), obviously i havent played it but so far it looks fun.

i'll tell you what since you have doubts on the game i will give you my opinion on it once i have actually played it.



Spoiler!
