The game received a 75 and finally dropped to 93.
Forget 94, I was right in the end! xD

Now to all the true winners of the predictions, including me, the proper kudos too.

Also as a side not, the predictions average have also turned out to being right now.

Haters showing up 2 months later?

75 Is a pretty good score

Yes, sure. Then check Metacritic and that is the score of average games not pretty good games. But this have been a beat to death conversation on VGC.

Goddamn, a 75? I still haven't played it myself but from what I've heard and seen that seems quite low. But 93 it is.

Was a matter of time TBH and more will get into the bandwagon.

Im more impressed that websites like Slant or Stevivor actually have the game an excellent review, especially the latter since it tends to crush Sony exclusives.

At the end, the game is selling phenomenal and a lot of people are loving it!!

Has anyone gone back and played tlou remastered after playing the sequel? I did that thinking the first game was better, but found that it wasn't. Nostalgia can be a powerful drug.

TLoU2 is better than TLoU in basically every possible way.

We still think TLoU is better because of how moved we were by its story and the excellent pacing.

TLoU2 also have those, but its a personal matter.

I didn't need to do it, I think I have played TLOU like 1 year ago or something like that. And when playing TLOU2 I had no doubt it was superior in every single way and that the only point of contention was what story one would preffer, and even if simpler and less extense I prefer the story and game of TLOU1. But also prefer any UC to TLOU.

I can't work out how the first has a better story. At what point does the story feel better than the sequel? I found the game was limited in terms of actual great performances that drove the game somewhere. It was pretty basic with only a few genuine moments between ellie and joel, or should i say ellie, since she pretty much started or drove the conversations. The ending was far from satisfying. Ellie and joel put on more convincing acting and peformances in the sequel, felt like an actual hollywood movie in terms of production and direction. Abby's performances also rivalled that of joel in the first.

The motive and trauma of Joel because of the daughter was very real for me due to my son being newborn around the same time.
