Sucks I can’t do spoiler tags from my phone. Hopefully soon we can just openly discuss the story without tags.

Perhaps give it another week =]

Have you tried editing a post in html format and copy the structure of a tagged post from someone else?

The Ellie parts are a clean 10/10 for me but the Abby segments fall hard for me, I'm worried real criticism will be over shadowed by angry neckbeards. I'd love a part 3 only if it was 100% Ellie focus other wise I wont have too much interest.

Funny how different people's perspectives can be. I ended up liking Abby way more than Ellie. In fact, I spent the whole game angry at Ellie and felt that she was the most deserving to die out of all the main characters in the game.

Then you fell for the narrative tricks ND did. You make Ellie do certain things when you play as her. Now compare to what you do as Abby when you played as her. It comes across very one sided. ND wants you to like her despite her past. 

(was this vague enough not to do a spoiler tag? I hope so)

You can if you are on chrome, tap the settings and request desktop site. Tick the box and you should be able to get the full sweep of settings.

Just compare how you treat the dogs between both narratives. Subtle but they tried.

Well at least the lesbian love scenes are much better than the "hetero" scene.

I guess that is one way to put it. ND tried to do something different here by showing that there are always two sides to each story, but apparently they didn't pull it off quite well, judging by people's reactions.

You know, it always bothered me (and disturbed me) the fact that so many people were not only okay with what Joel did at the end of Part I, but kept seeing him as a "hero" after that. So I suspect ND's plan this time around was to see how far they could take Ellie before people realize that there is something wrong with these characters.

Not a hero but most will relate with not allowing a dear one be killed and doing whatever it takes to ensure that.

Well I personally didn’t agree with Joel’s decision in part one. Needs of the many matter more and she wasn’t his actual daughter. But I get it, he was motivated by love. Abby, is not motivated by love when she does what she does. And that is why people do not like her, or at least in part.

Again, "two sides of the same story." For some reason is easy for people to relate with "not allowing a dear one be killed and doing whatever it takes to ensure that," but are not able to relate to having your father taken away from you while he was just trying to do something good for the world.
