A userbase that is 55% playstation 25%nintendo and 20% xbox
I dont see how things get scewed at all

Based on this a good list

Why would that matter? Rather than userbase it'd be individual sales that scew things. Some of the games on this list sold way more copies than tlou.  GTA RDR2 Witcher and also Botw.

Ironically, not to be on all platform, is usually doctored as a disadvantage. In this case it supposedly helped the game to get voted to the pole position.

Having played TLOU, I thought it was a good game, and one of the better survival-horror games, but not GOAT-tier. It had solid but unremarkable gameplay, and an interesting story. I'd say it is an 8/10.



The Last of Us is a great game, not game of the decade, but a great game nonetheless. Besides metacritic users score is not to be trusted.



Metacritic users are well known to be some of the biggest fanboys of all time. Everybody there spams 0/10 and 1/10 reviews on games from other platforms, or games that are even just the slightest bit disappointing. Not sure how much you can trust the results of a list like this.

Can't say I agree with much of this list personally. Witcher 3 is better than what I've seen of The Last of Us and Zelda for sure. Red Dead Redemption 1 is much better than Red Dead Redemption 2, which was plagued by an over-focus on realism among several other issues, so RDR2 being on the list instead of RDR is pretty terrible. Souls-likes are horribly overrated, so I can't say I agree with Bloodborne or Dark Souls being on the list at all. GTA V is a pretty meh game to be honest, one of the most overrated games I've ever played, nowhere even close to San Andreas in my eyes. Witcher 3, Skyrim, Mass Effect 2, and God of War are deserving of being on the list at least, haven't played Zelda yet so not willing to say rather or not it belongs at this point in time.



I never understood the urge of some people of going into a thread to shit, critize, undermine or just cry about a game that has been awarded the best at anything...Seriously. There's a similar thread about how BOTW is the best rated game by critics in metacritic people claiming is the best game ever, something i don't agree, and it never crossed my mind going to that thread and say..."Wrong game!!, overrated!!!, it's an ok game...". I don't see the point....If that game is the best at anything the only thing that come to my mind is a...."Congratulations!".

I guess people are going to say the same about the top 20 list of games of the decade by players that PS blog has shown today were TLOU has won too. Let's fill a thread with comments about how undeserved is too. Come on guys!!, you're wasting time!!.

We can't celebrate anything these days....Everything has to turn into negativity.....uggh.

That's the only way they know how to react, sadly.

I don't really know when it happened but at some point VGC became quite bad regarding bold.

I often see Nintendo threads without negativity and console war nonsense but for some reason it's no longer possible to read just a single page in a PS or Xbox related thread without a bunch of users entering with the sole purpose to troll/flame/bait/gloat/etc. Don't they have anything better to do? Gaming is supposed to be fun for crying out loud...



As expected. Personally I wouldn't put it in a top 30 not even top 50 of this decade for me, but it was expected for sure.

Are you going to be ok? First it’s “if you didn’t like the gameplay in LoU you just played it wrong!!” and now “why can’t we all just praise LoU mindlessly and not discuss anything else???”

Its a discussion forum. Let people discuss.

Ageeed. TLoU is a good stealth game only in the begining. You have very limited resources and no upgrades in the beginning. It's purely stealth and being smart about every bullet, shiv and other resources. But then you keep getting new weapons, upgrades and items so there's really no limited resources for you. I used brute force in many parts of the game to progress. Maybe it's because I played on normal, I don't know. Maybe I'll play it on hard someday, but I don't know.

I agree with the visuals and story too, it's amazing this game can run on PS3 at all, it's very impressive.

Play it on Survivor if you want a harder game.

Also play the online, it's REALLY good too and a lot of fun.

I keep hearing that the multiplayer is pretty good, but I can't play it unfortunately. They shut down the PS3 servers last year. =(

Maybe I'll replay the game on survivor and try the multiplayer when I get a PS4 and if I buy the remaster.
