Will The Last of Us live up to the hype?

25 replies 397 views Edited Jun 3, 2013

A lot of you got to play the demo recently and had the chance to get a feel for the game. There has been a lot of hype building up for The Last of Us, not only with fellow gamers, but critics as well. Do you guys think there is a chance that the game might be underwhelming, or not meet your expectations? Is there anything that you're worried about? 

 

We're all fans of the game here, so this isn't a hate thread by any means. Nothing is perfect, I'm just curious to know if any of you have any concerns.

After playing the very short demo, I can honestly say that this game is going to be something special.

I didn't play the demo, so hearing that is awesome. I pre-ordered it today(late, I know), and I can't wait for next week. Not only for TLoU, but E3 too! So no concerns at all guys?

I'm just hoping the game is as dark as possible in terms of how the game feels and looks. I don't want no movie-like experience. I want it to feel as realistic as possible. I don't know if I should try to get the demo or just wait for the game to release.

Ever hear of the saying "Lie enough, and you'll believe the own **bleep** that comes out of your mouth?"

I've learned not to hype games. Well, not hype them as much as I used to, as I tend to make up things in my head, then believe that they're actually in the game.

Yes, I believe TLoU will live up to hype, but I won't let these final days, which are the home stretch, get me uncontrollably hyped.

Some critics, like always, will find a way to criticize the game, but from what I've seen and experienced first hand, I think this will truly be a gem of a game. I'm excited to get my hands on it to say the least.

I honestly don't have any concerns, I'm just hoping for a great story & realistic gameplay.

I can't say I'm expecting this to be the greatest ps3 exclusive ever cause that leave room for a huge letdown.

I want that realistic combat like meeting someone in the street instead of talking behind someone's back all day.

Well I'm glad there isn't too many concerns with some of you. I hope it takes me a while to beat the story and I hope it's something I could play over and over and still get a new experience out of it. Sure, the story might not change but the gameplay itself could be good enough to warrant a few more playthroughs. :catvery-happy:
