Joe usually scores pretty harsh, does anyone know what else got a 10 from him? I think RDR was one.

Mmmm RDR.  Favorite game of 7th gen, tied with Xenoblade.

No surprise, that game is a friggin masterpiece. Easily one of the best game ever.



RIP ps3, xbox360.

Fair enough. i have been playing the game. i am in the sewers where you have to look after the black guys son. The game so far is fun as the story telling
i what makes it fun to play. However for me . my main drawback is the AI. they are smart but not consistent. there are alot of moments where the ai behaves stupidly to a point that you can exploit to your heart content lol and then for me the graphics for the remastered is disappointing as i was looking for a jump similar to Tomb raider definitive edition.. I wouldn't call it a masterpiece , however i would give it a 9/10. Listening to ellie talk to herself is quite hilarious :). PS on hard difficulty the game is very easy. Just have to be carerful when you have clickers in the area.


It is a masterpiece you are nowhere yet..it gets better and better as you progress, winter is amazing. You're not even half way.

To you maybe but for me nope. For me to be a materpiece it has to be without any flaws which tlou has . For me there no game that is masterpiece as no gam eis that perfect. Lol thats good to know i have still alot to do . i have only being playing it when i have time off from work.  Sweet i can't wait for winter yet. I have to admit ellie si a cool chick . However the game needs to be more challenging . way to easy. Does playing oon gorunded make the game challenging?


To most..it is a masterpiece it's place in history is sewcure.

 

 

Plays game on normal complains it's too easy..lol. Turn off hearing mode, put it on survivor....Also MP is a thing and its fantastic, It has tonnes of value. The game is brutal and tense on harder modes, amazing game, perfect pacing story, melle is tense and satisfying. Dont complain about difficulty and not be playing on harder modes. They are there for a reason.

 

Perfect has nothing to do with a game being a masterpiece, this game is a one of a kind genre defining experience. The writing and characters put every other game to shame, and it's tense survival combat and melee and exploration is amazing. Masterpiece means instant classic, one of the very best gaming has to offer, which this easily is.


I am playing it on survivor difficulty  and it is still easy there. i aven't play grounded  ,, but will do after i finish the first play through . The Ai is smart but not consistent. you can exploit the ai stupidity for most of the game which makes it easy. the only time that you have to be careful is when the area is full of clickers . ifor m e i don't go gun blazing so most of the time teh comabt is quiet and not tense. all i do is strangle one, throw a brick so the other enemies hears the noise and discovers the dead body, strangle him , then create noise so the next person discovers two dead bodies and repeat till all enemies are dead lol.  The melee in the game is quite basic. you end doing the same moves throughout the game. theres  very little variety to the melee combat. Exploration in TLOU is like any game that allows you to explore. heck teh world in tomb raider has more to exploire then TLOU lol. The one that makes TLOU standout from the competition is its story which is good but far from masterpiece story . for me the game is 9/10 which is pretty damn good sscore right?

grounded is the most deliciously frustrating thing ever. not checkpoints and you get like 10 bullets per section of the game. So, if you want to play grounded you have to be extremely careful with ammo even way more than usual. the enemies are way more tougher too so expect to die alot.


wow thats awesome. should have done it from the start lol. i am playing on survivor diffculty and i usually just strangle  them and if necessary puunch them to death. i only use guns when i have too on a clicker lol .  have you clocked the game on grounded yet ?

lol nooo..not at all. I am in winter now which is easily one of the most difficult part of the game especially when playing with Ellie (since she is not as strong as Joel and has to rely a lot on stealth). But it is very enjoyable. I will definitely let out a sigh of relief when i am done and move over to MP. never really got into it on the PS3.

I thought the game was awesome but not perfect

The gameplay became stale and too easy(played on hard) but the story was beautifully done
And that ending left me shocked...

Oh holy shit, on grounded mode when she has to escape from a certain someone, it took me a solid hour and a half to get past it. I stunned and melee'd my way thru anybody I couldn't stealth. I think i only killed one from when she escapes to the restaurant. 

The survival mode after hunting for the buck/deer is just as brutal.

You do realize Uncharted is pretty much an homage to action movies the like of indiana jones and such? It has to be in your face, it's an action adventure, not a suspense, crime mystery. The game was also meant to be linear, for the story's sake, it was never showcased as a explorative single player.

I do think it is best to judge for yourself though, play through all of it and then you can really give your opinion on it, good or bad. I think most people don't mind if a gamer doesn't like a game once they have played it all the way through but trashing a game without so much as playing it is just a diservice. It rubs anyone the wrong way.


In my opinion, you are blindly defending the game here - and you actually believe you have a point. But I disagree.

"It has to be in your face"

Nathan Drake does not need to hang (impossibly) by his fingerprints so often. It doesn't need to be in your face. Crafting an in-your-face game is easier than making a game with subtleties and intrigue. Someone may say, "Oh, but the game was meant to be like that", but that doesn't make it better - it's just an excuse.

"The game was also meant to be linear, for the story's sake, it was never showcased as a explorative single player."

This is nonsense. Tomb Raider isn't linear. There is no reason for it to have been so linear except for the technical challenges that it circumvents.

"I do think it is best to judge for yourself though, play through all of it and then you can really give your opinion on it, good or bad. I think most people don't mind if a gamer doesn't like a game once they have played it all the way through but trashing a game without so much as playing it is just a diservice. It rubs anyone the wrong way."

I finished Uncharted 1 twice (including crushing). I finished Uncharted 2 twice (including crushing). I finished Uncharted 3 once. I have full right to have the opinion that the series is overrated. Furthermore, when I say the exploration is boring and the gunplay isn't as good as (for instance) RDR and Gears, then I say it with full confidence that I am right. This becomes ever more apparant the more you play the game.

Again, Uncharted is an overrated series imo. This is mostly down to the average gameplay  mechanics. 



Joe is one of the youtubers who's opinion i respect, regardless if i like it or not.



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

I love the game, but using YouTube personalities as legit reviews? No. Just...no.

Actually, he's just a real gamer. He plays all his games, thoroughly, and doesn't bullshit it. It's the opinion and critic of a fellow gamer, who has no affilition to a website or company, how is that a bad thing?

It's not a bad thing, but apparently you aren't reliable if Metacritic doesn't cover you! *cough* Quarter to Three *cough*
