I got the Last of Us for Christmas and I just beat the game today and my thought upon completion was simply, "that was okay I guess". The game had a decent story, a sense of completion, a satisfying ending that can be interpreted in different ways and the graphics were what I'd expect in a PS3 game that was released as late as it was. But aside from those things the game really didn't deserve the amount of hype it received. The story like I just said was decent but it wasn't as amazing as everyone claimed it was. I didn't grow attached to anyone except Joel and Ellie or really feel any sort of emotion towards anyone else. When people got out of things safely I didn't care and when people died I didn't care. The game just didn't give me enough time with any of the supporting characters for me to grow an attachment. With the storyaside I'll turn to my main gripe. The gameplay. The game had a sense of progression with upgrades and gave a small sense of survival with the crafting but even when I'd use as much weapons and explosives as I could against the enemies I'd still have more to use. The game tried to tell me that resources were hard to come by but they weren't. Eventually that small sense of survival turned into me going guns blazing against everything because I knew that "there's plenty more where that came from". Also, the combat and puzzles were the exact same all the time with a few things thrown in between to try and make it feel like new things were being added, things like being able to ride a horse. The game tried to mix stealth with action but in every instance I was able to pick action and get the level done with faster. I just don't understand what is 10/10 or 9.5/10 about any of this. I'm going to end the rant/mini review here. I didn't even intend for this to drag this long but anyways back to the title. Did anyone else think The Last of Us was good but not as amazing as thousands of people made it out to be?
