Seems like Neil Druckmann who is the vice president of Naughty Dog, has been working with Anita Sarkeesian for some time.

I instantly vomited upon reading this.

And? GoT was popular, but hardly went on a high note. They appeal to the demographics so what do you mean? 

You mean key characters dying and yet those shows still were popular? Key difference is that they are shows that had dozens of episodes. Plenty time to introduce new characters and flesh out older ones. LOU2 came out 7 years after the first. The pacing of each is key to understand the difference of examples. 

Game of Thrones absolutely did go out on a high note, despite what the internet would lead you to believe. The final two episodes were the most watched in the series despite how divisive the final seasons were.

I'm picking at the middle part of your post. The "this is a game made for Western audiences" stuff, implying that Western audiences don't drink up media full of violence, deaths of beloved characters and additions of modern progressive themes. The most popular media franchises on the planet (Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, MCU, Star Wars and Grand Theft Auto to name a few) are fully sprinkled with violence, beloved character deaths and/or modern progressive themes. The first TLoU game was full of these themes too. Ellie's relationship with Riley is key to her entire character, Joel straight up tortures and executes people.

MBG cancelled his Collector's Edition.


Meanwhile Naughty Dog is currently busy striking YouTube videos that don't even show any leaked footage. ND freaking Ruined their 25+ years reputation in just few short days...

I get your stance but end of day I didn’t consider LOU to be woke or divisive. This is. We can both explain our positions but that’s the basic reality. 



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles. 

 

When people confuse popular with good. Yeah, people spit out their drinks and laughed then got angry with "Who has a better story than bran" or when Glenn was under the dumpster or Carls death. I quit TWD after letting Neegan live in such shit writing. "but the comics!" when did they ever let the comics let them stop doing stuff not in the comics.

Some time ago I would take great pleasure in seeing a PS fan sound utterly defeated and saddened to see the greatest game of a consoles generation be warped by the narrative teams vision. But seeing this guys video, I just feel bad for him. No fan should be this disappointed.

Seems like the multiplayer portion is also getting leaks around the net. Boy, nothing can go right for ND right now ...

Do people even care about multiplayer anyway in a game like The Last of Us?

I always head that the multiplayer from the first game was actually very good. Not that I would try it of course.

Who decides what's "good" if not the consumer of the product?

Opinions vary.
