i have it on ps3 and i didnt get passed like two hours after the intro. i dont know what it is. i tried to like the game but couldnt. is it really that good?

i know everybody has their own taste in video games. i dont like games that kind of play themselves. i dont like playing through a game just to get to a cutscene so i can see more story. tell me, is what makes this game so great just the story? i do want to see the story, but i dont know if i can get through the boring gameplay to see it. would i be better off just looking it up on youtube? i might give it a try again this summer because of all this buzz, but i really dont know if i could get through it.

The gameplay in the first two hours is pretty nonexistiant actually.  It is clear they are setting  the scene and it gradually evolves into a combination with the story and much more sophisticated combat gameplay.  I would reccomend that you try it on the hardest difficulty you feel wont make you ragequit since it gives you less ressources.  It might sound like a trivial thing but it truly makes it an entire different game as you have to very carefully weigh every decision you make because of scarce equipment and ammo. People dont think of gameplay when talking about the last of us but i truly think that it is one of the rare titles these that when willing to test yourself on highest difficulty it doesnt treat you like an idiot and actually forces you to do stealth while having  a flavour of luck..  It is truly the best game i played this gen alongside fallout 3
