    Well that sounds like a call for a study.

    How many times someone cringes when watching it a good metric?

    I agree it had
    1. Great voice acting
    2. Greater graphics
    3. Greatest Storyline

    But i disagree that it is GoTY in terms of gameplay

    Now about that PS4 port.
    I'm willing to double dip, Naughty Dog!
    EDIT: Tearaway too? Amazing game, everyone with a Vita should pick it up.

    I wasn't all that impressed with the game myself, but I'm glad others have enjoyed it. For me the gameplay felt pretty shallow/arbitrary (most of the stealth sequences were more like scripted one-solution puzzles with AI that would conveniently be blind if you stand directly in front of their vision), and the story was pastiche, waving flags like an Old English play, one saying AND HERE FEEL SADNESS and another AND HERE KNOW FEAR, more than evoking these emotions on a more natural level.

    I haven't played it yet. I'll probably be one of the last of us to play it.
