Am I The Only One?

28 replies 758 views Edited Feb 23, 2014

So does anyone else have this issue: I am so emotionally attached to the game that it is almost disturbing.  I really don't play video games as often as i used to a few years ago.  But every time I play through this game, I get this weird feeling after that I can't describe.  Like I either wish the characters were real so I could meet them, or that the game was longer.  Or maybe slight depression?  Haha, I know it sounds ridiculous, but it was bothering me so much I joined a forum for the first time in my entire life!! I can't tell if it is a good feeling or a bad feeling. Maybe I am just the only one, but if I am not, I would like to hear your opinions!

I get the same feeling. The game is so emotionly draining it gets you depressed. The only cure for it would be a sequel that leaves you happy.

And I would like to point out that I have beat the game about 4 or 5 times hoping to get sick of it and stop the feeling, but after all that I still have it.  It is a mystery to me

I feel the exact same way and I have played it about 10 times, the feeling is always the same, You are so emotionally attached to these two characters that you just cant seem to let them go. And as said it doesn't seem promising for the majority of people that wants a sequel with Joel and Ellie. Smiley Sad

Watch the The Walking Dead. You'll get a new show every single week with characters that are easy to get attached to and emotionally draining at times.

Well at least I am not the only one.  I really hope they make a sequel. But I'd be afraid to play it for the fact that one of them could get killed off or something.

TLOU has very good characters with a lot of depth and realism, so much that is  actually feels as if Joel and Ellie is life-like.  In this sense, the player can relate or get attached to them a lot more than other video game (or even movie) characters.

 

You really have to give credit to Ashley and Troy for being great actors (they voiced and mo-capped Ellie and Joel), as well as the writers of the game for writing out this experience in such a way that it bypasses any achievements anyone has ever made.

I'm not so attached to the Walkind Dead characters.. they could all die and I still wouldnt care. The only part that actually got me sad in that entire show was when oldie got his head chopped off.
