Yeah I've been watching Adam's reviews for a while now and they really show off his passion about games, besides he's one of the few reviewers that don't spoil the plot.

^ agreed! I loved Adam Sessler's reaction to playing The Last of Us "infected" demo. lol, that man was so unhindged, he was stuttering and his hand was shaking while holding the microphone, while he was interviewing Naughty Dog's Neil Druckman. It was awesome!

Sess is reliable, I'm glad I stumbled on his new channel a while back. It's good stuff!  

 

Good thing you got RDR, it's an amzing game, suprised you haven't already played it. It's well worth your time.

Ever since I watched X-Play for the first time however many years ago, I've always admired Adam Sesslers honest reviews.

Anything he reviews I take into deep consideration, despite what people say about the man!

Metacritic has gotten A LOT harsher as the year of this generation has really reached a fatigue level where nearly all games are scoring vastly lower than they would if we were early-mid in the year cycle.

 

Anyone expecting TLOU to score a meta of 92 or higher will be dissapointed. I'm guessing 90-91 if they nail most stuff which is hard to tell since its a new IP and we really don't know how it plays.

The problem right now is hype. People will have misconceptions of what this game can and can't do, as well as what it can achieve. People are gonna go in expecting one thing and will get something different. In specifics, we can't really say anything concrete, but that's my general criticism of the reviewers.

lol, I feel the Last of Us will be rated around 9.5 to perfect 10s from professional reviews. user scores will be mixed, because some folks will rate bomb it because they don't like a optional feature, or something.

I feel like it'll get 9.5 or above and probably GOTY for the PS3. I'm assuming that because even though I like the Bioshock series I think The Last of Us looks beyond from good and it'll at least beat Bioshock Infinite by a .1 - .2 at max.
