I just want to say that I love the galaxy ost so much. No other Mario game has come close to matching it yet imo. When even a stage called 'space junk galaxy' has a banger soundtrack you truly know they made something great

This page alone gives you your answer. Best to ignore them and their topics from now on.

 Mario just had a movie. Sonic has movies. Pokemon had a movie. Double Dragon had a movie. House of the Dead had a movie. Halo and Castlevania had TV series. Video games get adaptations. Shitty or good or everything in between. Shocker of the century! It's getting harder to find a even somewhat popular video game franchise that hasn't had a TV series or movie at this point. So nothing special to get an adaptation.

thats nice and all but did you miss the part where HBO hired famous  great actors and people still think the characters  in the video game did a much better acting  and showing emotions.

The actors and the motion capture being good doesn't make the game revolutionary.



I don't really get that point tbh because the mentioned movies and such also had famous actors and actresses, for example Detective Pikachu had Ryan Reynolds, Sonic had Jim Carrey and so on.

My Point  was despite having famous actors do the HBO series they could not match the emotions and story telling of the game. basically last us  raised the bar for story telling and cinematography in videogames that not even actors could match the same emotions felt in the game.  after the release of TLOU and the large success it had, a lot more cinematic-experience story driven games have become the focus of many video game company’s. Some recent examples being Ghost of Tshuhima, RDR2, God of War 2018 etc. most will tell they never experienced a game like the last of us the first time, not even close.

I call rubbish on this tbh because having watched the series it is a very good adaption but as film and TV goes TLOU is not even close to what you are trying to peddle here it's only really considered good story telling in the gaming space. What makes TLOU what it is are the competent story scenes scatter around the solid gameplay segments, the gameplay segments are often overlooked in their role in the game.

To highlight this a game will often have a cutscene followed by an in game set piece which puts the player directly in the action, this elevates any story around that segment hence why games get away with bog standard stories because the player is directly in the thick of it. When you convert this to TV and Movies it comes off different because unlike gamers who are thrown directly into the action viewers can only ever be a third party to it. 

TLOU TV show didn't fail to convey the story it actually executed that part perfectly it just couldn't replicate what the gameplay segments add so the result is the story is just seen as what it really is a competent decent story.

 I didn't say the series didn't tell the story good. it's just people think the game told the story much better cause you spend so much time with elle in the game so  that  connection is much stronger  compared to the series where they don't seem to nearly have the same bond as the game . joel in the game is just shows  way more emotion then the actor played in the movie.



I had a good laugh.

The people who think this are again gamers who played the game and would have played through the gameplay segments I mentioned. They have more connection to the characters as a result, the actors in the show had just as much emotion but they don't have gameplay segments to help the audience connect with them better.

For example in the hospital gamers would have navigated it of their own accord and pulled the trigger that is more direct involvement than watching someone doing it themselves on TV.



I didn't read all the pages here but I did laugh at a galaxy thread turning into a TLoU thread.

For me Nintendo and Sony focus on a completely different type of game.  It is nothing more than personal preference.  Sony is character and story driven.  Nintendo is gameplay and level design.  

For me I will take galaxy over Last any day of the week.
