The game is going to be divisive for so many reasons. You spent so much time developing the characters in part 1 to have them all die. Then the person you are playing as (Abby) has nowhere close to the likability of Ellie. It’s like playing Halo 5 as Locke and you spend time beating Chief to death. The shock value will be completely undermined by the fans investment in original characters and dislike of Abby.
Then you have the trans topic which will create an online mess of politics for months. People will be reduced to political sides and the game itself will be lost within all that. Definitely not a good call for ND.
Long story short, LOU wasn’t divisive. This will be. Somewhere along the line their vision was warped. And now to me, ND is no longer the flawless jewel in PlayStations crown. It always made (past tense :p ) me jelly that they could do no wrong.Last edited by sales2099 - on 28 April 2020
