Gamers: Always assuming and never satisfied.™
You people praise Naughty Dog left and right and then lose faith in them because of an optional feature. They know what they're doing. Who cares if other people don't have the same experience as you? Some people will use it, others won't. Take pride in the fact that you have enough self control not to press a button. Only God knows what would happen if you got your hands on an awesome drug, with that little self control, you'd be hooked day-one!
I couldn't believe some people are actually bashing the game and refusing to buy it because of this.
Me on the other hand? Highest difficulty level, listen-mode off and an all nighter protecting that adorable young lady.
That was a great post.
I hate how people are saying ,"What if i press it on accident or I WANT to press it"
If It happens on accident then you can just press it again to turn it off?
If you want to press it thats a lack of self restraint and if you have an urge,use it when you know there is no enemies.
Perhaps they will have an alt. control scheme,Mapping the Listen Mode to L3/R3.
But it pretty much just comes down to players choice,some people may need it or like it(even if you dont)
Have I mentioned how I am going to play the game on the hardest difficulty available on day one with no deaths and with no listen mode to tell everyone on the internet how hardcore I am?
