Naughty Dogs greatest game?

[ Edited ]

So now that most people have completed the game and had time to reflect do people believe TLOU is Naughty Dogs finest moment?  Basically what I'm asking is has it beaten Uncharted 2? Personally I don't think there's a clear winner because I love both games and I think most sensible people can appreciate the quality of both. Plus, although the games have similarities they are also quite different, especially in their tone. If I was forced to chose though I'd go with Uncharted 2. TLOU has more polished gameplay and a deeper more emotive plot but Uncharted 2 had more jaw dropping moments, it just felt more............spectacular.

For me? The Last of Us - since I haven't gotten to play UC2 so I can't say anything about it. I have played UC3 though, but it wasn't as good as The Last of Us in my honest opinion, although still a good game.

I played all ND games,
and if 2 games of them on the same level then indeed it's uncharted 2 and the last of us.

Uncharted 2 has a great Story and a nice gameplay,
and man yeah Asia mythology is something i love to play with.

BUT

man, uncharted 2 is so unrealistic I don't know..
after the last of us many games just end up in no meanings for me.

you can't compare a realistic/human story with a fiction game...
and I personal didn't got heart running by uncharted 2


for me the last of us will be really really hard to beat for ND and I bet they only can beat it with a other tlou part..

I still think Uncharted 2 is ND's finest game.. TLOU is better than U2 in a lot of ways. But looking back, during when U2 came out, it took me by surprise like no other games did this gen. U2 had higher highs. I've never felt the intesity waivered on that game. It just kept on building up. Right after beating U2, I was like "darn is that the best game i've ever played?".

 

TLOU to me w/o question is a great game. But it felt as if TPS games of this gen are supposed to be this good. So the surprise/wow factor wasnt there or isn't as strong as it was compared to U2. So right after beating the game, I knew its one of the best i've played. Though I'm kind of certain it didn't surpass U2 in my books. Kinda unfair now that I think about it. If it was TLOU that was launched in 2009, and U2 launched in 2011, will i still think U2 is ND's best game? idk. maybe not. 

 

Will my U2>TLOU opinion change? As time goes by, probably.

What we all agree on is Uncharted 3 was ND's worst game.

For me, I'd have to say that honor goes to The Last of Us. Uncharted 2 was a brilliant game, but The Last of Us was so raw and emotional, and it managed to touch me in many different ways. The only games that have come close to making me feel so much for characters would be The Walking Dead and Heavy Rain. Uncharted 2 is a masterpiece, but isn't as much of an emotion-driven personal story because it's not supposed to be. My vote would have to be for The Last of Us.

As much as I love UC2...TLOU is on a whole different level, imo. I think it's their best.
