I love the first one and I'd recommend it to anyone. Although the original is a tragedy, it feels more like a classic tragic adventure, and everything was meaningful and full of hope. The end was kinda of a giving, I think no one would expect a proper fix for the disease. But still, the road trip was meaningful and could always get to a good settlement, even without a cure.

Now, driving mad women through revenge, is an absolutely inferior proposition by all means.

LOL yes. I admit that would be glad with a Jackson community building game or at least a sequel written by Steven Spilberg a la Falling Skies.

And just to clarify a few things, I don't know much about the political background of reviewers but in my case I'm not adding anything political and my point is not about violence only.

I also can agree that it's a sincere work, which is a good thing, but still sincerely miserable and ugly.

Well, as I wrote to KLA Marine a few pages ago (direct link), I've reached the conclusion in my replays that the ending of The Last of Us Part II is actually a hopeful one if you pay attention to the details. At least that's how I interpret it anyway.

Concerning your preference that this game should've either been a Jackson community-building title or written by Steven Spielberg...well at least you got half your wish with all the Jurassic Park and Lost World references and allusions both at the museum and in the auto chase scene (allusion to the Lost World arcade game). It's kind of like Steven Spielberg was involved.

Spoiler!
Oh it's definitely a happy,hopefull ending. Infact this is the best possible ending i could imagine for a game set in that kinf of world, the theme of tlou. I can't praise neil or halley grossman enough, or the other guy everyone forgets about.  Not only does ellie save abby and lev from dying a horrible death at the stakes,( abby and lev probably suffered more than joel at that point) , ellie saves her soul in the process by not going through the act at the end, and she definitely gets back with dina and jj, jesses parents. Abby and lev make a fresh start with the fireflies. what more could you want. If this game was uncharted, joel would be alive, but this isn't uncharted. 
Spoiler!
Spoiler text.

Hahaha brilliant.

But anyway, for all those who see better things on the second than the first, I just have to say that I couldn't disagree more. The disagreement is so strong that makes it impossible to debate. For me seeing more light on this game than the first is just completely bonkers.

Kotaku reviewer just nailed it when they called it misery simulator. I'll stick to that and it's final. I'll never replay this game, I'll resell it instead.



God bless You.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

There were three ravens sat on a tree / They were as blacke as they might be / The one of them said to his mate, Where shall we our breakfast take?

It's been so interesting reading everyone's interpretations of the game and even the past games. I mean this game was depressing and so was the last one. The dude's daughter died and then he finally gets a new daughter in a way but loses a women he fell in love with. Then he has to decide between humanity finding a cure or keeping his replacement daughter and he chooses the most selfish option and dooms humanity.

It's amazing what games have become since the days I started playing mario on my nes when I was 9. The outrage over this has been very similar to what happened during GOT and the red wedding. Which funnily enough was an event that almost caused me to stop watching the show.

Resell it to me, I could use a back-up copy just in case!

"I'll resell it instead"

A wise decision! Hope you can get the bulk of your money back.

The best of tlou1
1. Joel "scooch"
2. Ellie" you can't miss that fat ass", joel "knock it off"
3. Ellie looking at playgirl, stuck pages
4. Ellie trying to whistle
5. Joel and Tommy 's heated talk
6. Ellie reluctant to get back onto horse with tommy
7. Joel comes to his senses and rides with ellie
8. Ellie tells Joel he owes her a song when they make it out
9 Joel rises from the dead and saves ellie from David.
10. Witnessing the girraffes

Am I missing something?

I'd put the outcome of Michael & Isaac cutscene somewhere on the list imo.  It has that payoff if you'd paid attention earlier in the game with the store toy and your time with them felt substantial enough to really sell the gut punch.
