Yeah, if you haven't tried the game you shouldn't talk about it either really.
Now, I've played Uncharted 1 & 2, and I don't get all the hype to those games, but I wouldn't say that The Last of Us is overrated just because of that.
But I do get what he's saying about Kojima. All that man does is Metal Gear, so I don't understand the hype surrounding him. Granted, I haven't played any Metal Gear games (mostly because I can't stand that long cutscenes!!), so I wouldn't say he's overrated, only that I don't get the hype.
I agree I played Uncharted and was extremely disappointed. Not because I expected to much (I always play games expecting the worst so I wont get disappointed) but because I wasted way to much money on a meh game. (TombRaider 2012 was far better IMHO because it shows young Lara struggling and getting stronger etc. and not a goofy average joe sunny boy whos completely unsympathic) ... I also never liked Jak n Daxter either because of their characters and character design (imho Ratchet n Clank is waaaaaaaay better).
I really would like to play TheLastOfUs tho but because NaughtyDog is so overrated I wont be able to try the game before it drops to 20 bucks. (not going to waste more money on ND games. TLoU might change that but unless I play it I will stay sceptical)
Also dont get the Kojima hype. Actually I dont get any kind of hype because the hype starts before the game comes out and noone knows how it will end up like... Do people have glass balls?
Yeah, I didn't really expect anything from Uncharted either, what I DIDN'T expect at all was all the damn shooting. That caught me by surprise. It's more of an shooter than it's an adventure game. The controls aren't all that great either. I also enjoy the latest Tomb Raider a great deal more than any UC game; the protagonist feels more genuine, there's a greater mystery surrounding the main plot, it's not as linear, and above all, the controls are superior.
I'll try TLOU sooner or later; it shows a lot of promising, but I think I'll be expecting more of a shooter this time around.
I'm not too keen on games where you watch cut scenes for half the play time... That's not my cup of tea. I'd much rather watch a movie, which usually has a better story anyways.
