Can't decide what to get: The Last of Us or Splinter Cell Blacklist

45 replies 779 views Edited May 30, 2013

Naughty Dog is one of my favorite developers. And I love post apocalyptic fiction. The grittier and bleaker the better, and zombies are just an icing.

 

So of course I'm insanely hyped for TLOU. But I'm in college, with limited money to spend, and only plan on buying one new game this summer. I'm also a huge fan of the stealth genre and the Splinter Cell looks an amazing return to form for the series. Plus split screen coop and spies vs mercs multiplayer

 

SC probably has more replay value due to the more open levels, three distinct playstyles plus loadouts, and split screen I can play with my brother. But TLOU looks like it has an incredibly mature, emotional, and dark story with awesome AI, the option to be stealthy or aggressive, "zombies" that are actually dangerous and scary, and some of the most intense combat I've ever witnessed. That E3 demo was more intense than any game or set piece I've played in the last year. and it was just Joel fighting like six guys. And my bro wants me to get TLOU more than SC.

 

So I'm having a hard time decided between the two. I'm definitely going to wait for reviews, but any thoughts or opinions?

Wait for the GOTY, GTA V...

 

 

But TLOU will obviously be the better SP game while SC will be better MP wise so decide which is more enjoyable for you.

Go with Splinter Cell, then wait for The Last of Us GOTY edition with all the DLC included for less than 60 bucks, probably coming early next year.

Buy the game depending on what genre you prefer then once you've played it as much as u can be arsed sell it and buy the other, personally i LOVE the SC Series but its dwindled recently and with TLOU being a new IP offering more "freshness" thats the route im taking.

This makes a lot of sense OP. If you can only get one, go with Splinter Cell. ND always releases a cheaper version of the game that includes all the DLC.
