I always think its wise to let a game sit for a while before you can throw it in the greatest games of all time pile. For example despite GTA4s scores a lot of people didn't like it and wonder what people were thinking when they reviewed it.
The Last of Us left a way stronger impact on the people who played it than most other games you could give as such examples (like GTA4).
But I understand your point. I don't think it will apply to TLoU though.
