And actually I remember more people complain about TLOUR than Halo MCC...


MCC is a better investment. You get multiple games with all their multiplayer maps with their original engines, made to look beautiful. It's a lot more bang for your buck than upgrading a year old game a little bit and adding the sub-par DLC chapter.


And where did I complained about the value of Halo MCC? Some people are so into the console warz that they think all points is negatives when they don't explicitly praise their console of choice... tiring.

Good article. Very well written.

What a surprise



Anyone that complains about TLOU:R and then is okay with the MCC has an obvious agenda and isn't even worth it.



Thanks jlmurph!

I don't know about other remasters such as Tomb Raider and Metro, but this one was obviously done for the mass of the people that bought into a PS4 and never owned a PS3, which if Sony are telling the truth, would be a lot of people.



I honestly don't care. You can choose to buy it or simply ignore it. This remaster has gotten a lot of criticism though. I personally believe if it was called The Last of Us Game of the Year Edition it wouldn't have gotten as much hate since GOTY editions are fairly common. I think adding the "remastered" title to a year old game really ticked people off for some reason.



Around the Network

"In many ways, The Last of Us Remastered is the worst example of the gaming industry’s re-release trend we’ve yet seen, but it has escaped a lot of criticism by virtue of the excellent game that’s attached to it. People loved the original game, they love Naughty Dog and they love Sony as a manufacturer, mostly because they simply aren’t Microsoft. Indeed, when Microsoft unveiled theHalo: The Master Chief Collection at E3 2014, they received arguably more criticism than Sony has faced."

What a load of bullshit, the amount of hate that TLOU:R has gotten stands above any other remaster/remake this year or possibly ever.

Also this article provides a great new perspective on a topic that has not been discussed to death at all. /sarcasm

If someone want to complain about the lack of AAA games for the first year I get it, what I don't get is how not making TLOUR would have made more games available to people. I guess I aint much clever.

And actually I remember more people complain about TLOUR than Halo MCC... didn't put the link so he don't grab more clicks.

Yeah totally spot on..by not making TLOU it would not actually mean more PS4 games. Unfortunately it seems to be this is just a whipping horse they are using to moan... because moaning gives clicks.

I purchased it again, and i am very happy with my purchase. I am sure many people who will buy it wont have played it before, and those that have will also be happy with their purchase. I wish people would stop telling us how to spend our money. Should sony have just converted it quickly and not put effort into it, then that would have been a cash cow no doubt. They could have not released it, yeah that would have been fine, but all these new users would never get to play it.. So its a no win situation.

This year has been light on games, but from September onwards it's going to get crazy, and very few will bemoan the fact that there are few AAA games available. So we had 8-10 months of only a games, I still own over 14 boxed games...lol.

The other thing that really annoys me, is that the attach rate of these next gen consoles is about 2-3 games per person at the moment, and thats considered good. There are many more than 3 games available for both platforms, perhaps if people played more than their few genres, they might find a few more games to play and the industry would be in less of a mess. :)

There will definately be more remasters, they are actually quite useful for companies to learn how to convert their gaming engines across to the new gen, so I expect more. We know GTAV is coming, will people moan about that game coming... probably not. Crazy games industry where internet rage is all the....errm rage :)

For me most games are expensive at 60 (but I understand the reason), and since I already have TLOU I'll wait for TLOUR to be at 20-30 to be more affordable to me,  but I don't see any problem in them releasing it at 50 since the game + DLC is basically this value (launching for 40 would be a deal breaker).

And I didn't understood in the article how the bundle is a bad idea or how this game is a slap in early adopter. I just have Infamous SS for PS4 because when I was at US all games were 60 and besides Infamous SS the other game I wanted was Knack but I won't pay 60 on it, 20 at max. UC4 I'll pay 60 =]

About the lack of game I also find it obtuse, the end of life attach rate are around 10 games (right now around 3) so we already had at least 4-5 AAA top games to buy so I trouble understanding this reasoning.

When X360 timed exclusives came to PS3 with DLC and small improvements for full price I don't remember people complaining, nor with GOTY edition... so we know the reason for so much hate... another point is if next month or during holiday a GOTY edition of TLOU releases for PS3 for 40-50 will people complain about it or about TLOUR?

How do you come to that genius conclusion? MCC offers a lot more for your money than TLoU HD does by a long shot.

Seems like this to me...

OT: Don't like it? Don't buy it. I see no issue with it existing. It got marked down by $10 as well, so... not seeing much of the issue. Plus it includes the DLC apparently...
