ND did a great job creating a good story and making a believable apocalyptic world. The SP game-play elements on the other hand consisted of your basic 3rd person stealth and cover shooter. Game play wise it needed more polish.

The way the maps and story play out means there is really only one way to play this game. There aren't any alternate routes or anything decision wise that will make a 2nd playthru any different from your first. If your thorough and beat the game once, there really is very little new to see after that.

It was a good game. 10/10 is a bit much. 9/10 is personaly what I'd score it


Gotta disagree with you there. I feel the gameplay was one of the most underrated aspects of TLOU. There's more variety then you give it credit for - from shootouts to slower paced, creepy areas that wouldn't look out of place in Deadspace to breathless set pieces. It's polished, tense and exciting all at once and there's actually plenty of room to use different tactics and to improvise. No offence but maybe you're playing it wrong?

Also, to criticise TLOU for being liner is like criticizing Fallout 3 for being open world. Some people seem to think linearity is always a bad thing but done correctly it allows a cohesiveness and pacing that you couldn't get in a non linear game and Naughty Dog do linear better then anyone.

I don’t think you should feel bad about not liking a video game as much as someone else or not wanting to replay it immediately after finishing its single-player campaign. We all have different tastes and preferences. We also have different uses for our time. As long as you enjoy the video games that you play through it shouldn’t matter too much how many times you actually play through them.

Lol so much variety? What magic pipe are you smoking out of? You literally stealth killed everybody or you had to shoot it out. The maps were as linear as possible, you literally only had 1 way to go. 

If you tried being stealthy in a situation where the game wants you to fight it out, weird things happened. Point in case the part in Pittsburgh where Ellie is covering you with a rifle. I stealth killed everybody there only for the game to spawn in more enemies in the corners of the map. It was like the game wasn't going to let me ninja that segment - it was actually forcing you into a combat situation.

But hey "I just suck". Keep calling good games "the best ever" and see how much more innovative developers get. It's called constructive criticism and I post it here in hopes of making TLOU sequel even better.

I'm actually pretty decent at MP. Doesn't every game with TDM include teamwork? 1 vs. 5 in TDM and you're probably going to lose.

That's the argument I see when people, like myself, don't enjoy this multiplayer. People automatically assume "he doesn't like it because it involves teamwork." Um, no. I don't like it because I don't like it. There are plenty of reasons I don't like this game.

I think the game is fine where it is, but it's not for me.
