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 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.
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.
