Last of Us 2

Hands down one of the most brilliant games I've ever played. I'm almost done so no spoilers but wow...Just wow.

If you have a PS4 and don't have this game you are missing out.

My Son played it and said it was the worst (most boring) game he has ever played. I’ve just started and I have to agree with him so far. A lot of walking about doing nothing so far.

There is no depth to the story. Forced ideological stances; everything is symbolic. Leaves the characters as hollow vessels representing an idea rather than substance. Tired ideas at that.

The game reminds me a lot of Horizon Zero Dawn; the entire world existed to showcase the stupid ass main character's virtues. Everything existed for her Mary Sue progression and "what she stood for". This is supremely unfair to the characters herself as well since, like I said above, they also just serve to represent *something*. Typical comic book style of symbolic moral struggles.

Compare LOU2 and HZD above to something like Nier Automata; the main characters in Nier were part of something way bigger than themselves and what we played was a small slice of a bigger, mysterious universe that had its own rules and its own past, present, and future... each of which may or may not play a part in the slice of a story we were part of by way of the main characters. There was dogma here too. There were ideologies at play, and yet all those things didn't matter for shits because the world, the universe, was way bigger than the sensibilities of our characters and what they represented; in fact, what do the main characters even represent in Nier is a great question to ponder, especially in the context of the "good" ending. That was an amazing story and a lovely game to play. LOU2 is cheap trash built for cheap trash.

Different strokes bro. I think it looks interesting, and frankly, I don't go to games to get so in-depth with character plots that make sense and such, so it'll probably work for me.

Absoluteyl this game is not worth it, it is better to revisit old games like i am playing smackdown here comes the pain season mode and believe me i enjoyed more playing that game.

It's wild to me how much hate this game is receiving. The first one was my favorite game ever and the second is even better. Most people are just mad that the narrative didn't play out the way they thought it would.

Bingo. And don't forget about all those who were butthurt about the lgbtq aspects of the game.

Strange.
I agree with you 100% that the first one was hands down the best game I had ever played at that point. The storyline was incredible and emotional beyond anything I had experienced in any game, in 25 years of gaming. I played it every night in the dark with PS4 headphones, and it actually scared me at times. The only game in years that brought on that emotion while gaming.

I was upset that the game ended and was praying for a sequel. Then the LOU2 was announced to be in the works and I was soooooooo stoked.

Come to present day and I bought LOU2 for myself for my birthday. I, like most people reviewing the game, was upset with the story line progression rather quickly, and I have since finished it. While I enjoyed playing the game it by no means brought on the same feelings as the first. I didnít like the forced feeling of the narrative, and the biggest problem I had was itís the same game play as it was 10 years ago. There was almost no change in the play style.

There isnít much more I can say without giving away spoilers so I wonít go into it anymore, but for anyone who hasnít played the first game, you are doing yourself a disservice. Get the original and play it! Preferably in the dark, late at night, with headphones, and prepare to jump.

People are never happy. Lol

I thought the game was great. I have been playing games since Atari days and only PlayStation from first until now. Great game and can’t wait for the PS5.

I'll say it again, I really loved the game. So much so that I played through it again on hard mode. I have no desire to try survival mode however.

I thought the characters all felt like real people precisely because of how flawed they all were. Didn't feel at all forced to me.

I probably ran across more broken people in my life.

Agreed on HZD though.

It's a good game with a good story bot nothing else. At one point, the gameplay becomes boring and I'd rather play AC or Ghost of Tsushima, at least there's more action.

5.6 is the metacritic review.

They had to get all 'social justice warrior' which added very little to the plot. If felt forced, not natural.

Ending was poor.

Shame they had to fuck up the series. The 1st one was great.
