    ND had been shit out tons of shitty game lately. It won't be long before they run all their IP to the ground. And I doubt most people would want to play the 3rd TloU now that they know how their favourite character end up in the 2nd game. Or maybe they really think people would want to play as Abby again, lol.

    Failing upward i suppose. but co-president and co-vice president? it sounds like they created those roles just so they could promote people. that's a bit odd, isn't it?

    ND's games are overrated and not interesting at all. People are allowed to have opinions, so please people, deal with that reality and move on. Thanks.

    People have a right to not like popular games

    That's a good point. They don't really care about the story of the game or the initial reception as long as it makes them money. Kinda sad to think about, but we'll see what the future holds.

    It feels like Sony forgets that sweet, sweet weeb content these days themselves.
    I'm still salty about about how they sat on PSO2 and did nothing for a decade, a MORPG with thousands of hours of content and just waited for Xbox to snatch the game. And judging by history, the only reason FFXIV isn't on Xbox is because how stingy Sony is about cross play. The chat in areas where PS4 and Switch players of PSO2JP can meet still can't interact with each other.
    Sony barely marketed Gravity Rush 2 and when it underperformed they shut down the online features after just a year of release.
    The PS Store is notoriously bad in recommending games of relating genre. "You've played Digimon Story? We recommend some Battlefield 1 with that".
    I don't even care about the censorship. What I care is that the company that helped localizing my most fav JRPG of all time, Grandia, probably wouldn't even acknowledge it exists nowadays. It really makes me super unenthusiastic about their consoles if that's how they approach games from their home country.

    Oh yeah and to add something on-topic. I wouldn't be surprised if this is foreshadowing for TLOU2 winning multiple categories @thegameawards.

    considering that you can use multiple account to vote for the same game, I wouldn't be suprised if someone made a bot to boost one specific game.

    especially when you see how some tlou fan act on twitter...

    Sure people can like the game, but the backlash didn't come from nothing. In the PS store it had like 1200 5 stars before release and same for metacritic.
    TLOU2 isn't as bad as many say it is, but it still falls behind other games in the same timeframe.
    imo most critics about the story are valid points and hinder the experience I had with the game, but it is still enjoyable, maybe a 6 or 7/10.
    Pretty sure when there will be a LOU3 they won't sell as much as they did before.

    With all that and what they did with copyright on youtube etc. it still feels a bit strange when such a news pops up, or with the game awards or what it was.
    In conclusion just saying I understand why people react the way they do and why they are salty

    I have never played a Naughty Dog game so this is extremely funny to me.

    This is a common logical fallacy know as "appeal to popularity".

    6ix9ine is popular; doesn't make his music any better.

    ... If you're going to play a Video Game written with the same drivel that most Western TV Shows are, then expect to have the next Seasons play out exactly the way they do.

    If pushing an all-inclusive agenda isn't part of what you call entertainment then the question would be why you'd go out and buy a Video Game with the same intent in the first place; this story plot didn't happen overnight and it's not exclusive to this Genre.

    Edit: story plot instead of plot; figured it might be misunderstood.
