I thought TLOU was a great game, but when people say it is the greatest piece of software ever made or even the best game of last gen I completely disagree. I won't be buying the Remastered version as I feel it will be very similar to last year's game, but people who skipped it on PS3 should definitely play through it.  People saying TLOU is better than say Super Metroid, Ocarina of Time, Symphony of the Night and DooM (among others) are crazy, but hey opinions.

What was the best game of seventh gen, in your opinon?

Mass Effect 2, very closely followed by Battlefield Bad Company 2.  On my top 50 of all time games list we made last year on this forum TLOU got #25.  I think it was #5 for 7th GEN overall on the same list.  I had ME2, BC2, Borderlands 2, and RDR above it and Uncharted 2 was right below it at #26 of all time.

I just could not get into ME2. I was so bored. BC2 was good, but I don't even think it's in the same er "company" as RDR or Borderlands 2. RDR is definitely a top contender, I agree...and I'd agree with Borderlands 2 as well (only if including all dlc).

However, borderlands has a lot of "filler", so I would've ranked it lower.

But, I'm glad, you seem to have good taste. #5 is a very good spot, as is #25 on best of all time. I'd say you don't completely disagree. You jsut disagree a bit. :D

  • Knights of the Round (SNES, 1994) (Metacritic Score - They don't have one)

bolded all the ones I didn't play. It's a very good list.

I'd include somewhere:
monkey island
katamari damacy
little king's story
persona 4 golden
starcraft
Diablo 2

I'm sure there's more. I'd remove:
NARC
Trials
Eternal Champions
AvP
NBA Street
Mass Effect 2



Anyone know what's going on with the crappy DLC?

Game are selling this, a "day one edition" http://www.game.co.uk/en/the-last-of-us-remastered-day-one-edition-291882?pageSize=20&searchTerm=the%20last%20of%20us&catGroupId=

The Last of Us Remastered Day 1 Edition Survival Pack Includes:

Increased Crafting Speed
Increased Healing Speed
9mm Reload Speed Upgrade
Rifle Clip Capacity
Two Skins for Joel and Ellie
Bonus XP for Multiplayer


I got some pre-order stuff on PS3 AND the season pass. I know all the actually good content is included, but what about this? Will I get my PS3 pre-order stuff on PS4

Because I'm almost certainly going to wait for it to be a bit cheaper

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.

Although you've probable gotten an answer already on whether it was good or not I would just like to add my two cents.  I thought it was meh

It is heavily focused on story but that doesn't necessarily take from the gameplay. The game is extremely immersive and the mechanics are quite simply the best I've experienced in a third person shooter. Shooting recoil may start off a bit annoying to less patient players, but it will become close to perfect as you progress and upgrade your guns.

On the downside though, It has a little bit of "Assassin's Creed" in terms of variety. While it isn't anywhere as repetitive, I felt like it could have been more diverse despite the limitations of plot and setting. The enemy/friendly AI can sometimes be hilarious too, but overall it's pretty impressive.

thanks for that analysis. i kind of expected a bit of repetitiveness, but in any case, i really just need to sit down and play the damn thing

I doubt you will find it repetitive at all, but if you do try the harder modes, it will pose such a challenge that you probably won't feel it anymore.
