Hey guys, I am just starting to play this game since I am bored with the games I am currently playing (dishonored death to the outsider and FF XV). the opening seems quite intense and the voice acting is amazing, however I have seen the tropes and the story of this game from endless post-apocalyptic movies out there. does Last of Us still stand out in term of the story? what makes it very appealing?

It was easily one of the best games I've ever played. I didn't want to stop playing until it was finished and I was ready to keep going after it ended. Few games do that for me. Pop in, bud.

Indeed one of the best games I played on the ps3 and bought again for the ps4 (I hoped for massive upgrade on graphics but the ps3 version is pretty good already)
Waiting for Last of Us 2 announced for 2019.

The last of us on the ps3 was mind blowing with what they could do with that limited ram. It looked amazing then and now with the ps4 version and a ps4 pro it has so much more breathing room.

The story brings you in with the emotional attachments you get with the characters and keeps you in with wanting to know what happens next. The story is amazing. Intense and fast at some instances, and then quiet and slow at others.

Ive played this game atleast 12 times over because I love it so much. I got my friend to download it from my account so she could play it before TLOU2.

I have a very biased opinion on this story. Naughty Dog knows how to make amazing
games. I say go through the whole thing. Just avoid online because its trash :)

No doubt about it. Its awesome game. I loved it and finished it. I still have it. Dont sell it. Keep it after you finished it. :)

Now, I wait for The Last of Us 2. :D

Ok. I just finished it. The story is actually quite predicatable but it has a very good execution. I haven't experienced such an incredible cinematic experience since batman Arkham city.
I understand why the game's ending is so discussed. But I feel Sam and Henry's death affected me more since I have an older sister, and it made me thinking, would have happened if either of us were at that situation.

While it's good, but I don't find it groundbreaking and haven't so much attachment to the characters compared to mass effect casts. Maybe I should replay again to appreciate this game's writings

IMO, The Last of Us is an absolute must-have. Not only is it my favorite game on PS4, it's also my favorite game in general. You should absolutely get it.

I think the game sucks as it follows the agenda of masculinazing women in violent and gory video games.
I can see why someone would say that about the second game, but I don't think they were trying to push any masculinity agenda in the first game. Sure, Ellie was in the front on the cover, but that's about it.

You're right. I was referring to the second game. I haven't seen the first but judging from the second I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't contain social propaganda.

Go and play it Man! It is a very emotional story and so fun to play. Consider that they create the Uncharted franchise, naughty dog are very professional ;) you won't regret it

I think it’s a “fine” game. It has some good moments but it’s not really fun to play gameplay wise. The end took me by surprise but I wasn’t that much involved with the characters, i’m still gonna get the second one but may be on sale.

I think it’s a good 7/10, may be 8 (I thought the intro was really nice) but not that ground breaking like everyone said. That’s why i’m waiting to play the new God of War. It’s truly gorgeous though, like really nice to look at.

In my opinion it was very good... BUT not game of the decade material like people like to describe it.
I enjoyed it a lot though. It saddens me that I have no PS4 to be looking forward for the part 2.

Gambia, The
Story? Yay? Gameplay? Nay.

Watch a good movie and you will have the same experience. Gameplaywise it's ok, but nothing groundbreaking. A lot of small areas to take cover and shoot, or stealth. Repeat that, craft some things and you are done.

    Here's another video fog isn't being displayed properly on several games. Nintendo life also reported this. Water Temple in oot water reflection isn't emulated properly either the whole point of the gimmick of that room. Graphical glitches and poor emulation shouldn't be present at $30 bucks
