It was late at night on June 14th when I decided at this point in the game, that this was enough Last of Us for now. Smiley Happy

 

Stalkers freaked me out.

Exactly! I was very cautious turning on other generators after the hotel basement. 

 

I always go for the keycard before the generator, so I end up boxing with about 3 - 4 stalkers so after I turn it on I make a mad dash for the door before a bloater or clicker gets me and it feels like the grim reaper himself is breathing down my neck when I'm trying to get Joel to causally slide the keycard so I can open the door. Scares me everytime.

This place is the only time I have to take off my headphones and go back to the tv speakers for audio.

 

It's so damned creepy and those stalkers send chills down my spine when they're running around and breathing heavily as they keep hiding in different spots.  I can't take that breathing and running so loud in my ears, it just freaks me out.

 

I cower in a corner with a shotgun and wait for them to come to me, I hate trying to run around and find them, I jump when they come out from a side and grab me, so I just put my back against a wall and wait.

I f*cking hate that Stalker that is just looking at you when you turn around if you go for the keycard first. I wasn't expecting that at all.

But yeah, this section is definitely one of my favourites in the entire game, especially on Survival. But the game as a whole just feels a lot better on Survival imo.

I wish we had more Stalker encounters tbh, I think they really make the infected sections a lot more intense.

First time I played this, I was completely **bleep**???!!! You know... When there's 10 stalkers attacking you and then the Bloater picks you up and kills you. That was enough, next try I went for the key and everything and ended in the generator, then ran to the door. Only these past 3 playthroughs have I killed everything... (2 Normal + and 1 Survivor +)...

I love how when Joel opens the door with the keycard he's just like: "So much for that." in probably the calmest voice ever. 

 

I was thinking: "What the **bleep** joel, ARE YOU NOT **bleep** SCARED?" 

 

First time I did this, I killed all the stalkers and kept running away from the bloater as I was scared out of my mind. He'd keep doing this patrol thing. I didn't have any bomb or molotov, nothing but like 4 rifle bullets and 1 shotgun bullet. .-.

 

It took me 20 minutes of shooting, running away, crouch, wait, shooting and repeat. 

 

I played it again on Survivor and was like: **bleep** this **bleep**, and just ran, ran past it all... NEVER AGAIN.

That Bloater...
Also I hate how we have to inspect the door before using the key card. Very annoying!

Makes me laugh the way Joel just casually opens the door as a Bloater is about 2 meters away from him.
I would be like "FDHSFZGGDGXZGF!!!"
