Just finished The Last Of Us and I don't remember us having a thread about it, so what do you lot reckon?

Personally, it's gone right into the all time favorites and I award it a rare fanfuckingtastic out of 10. Amazingly well written and decently lengthy. Even if the story did pinch bits from plenty of other films & games.

Another ex-cadetlad here. My cadet troop took to me to the shooting range the very first time I attended, and a couple of weeks later we all went to Bisley to do more shooting, along with learning how to spy on enemies while under camouflage. Fun stuff, I would have stuck with it if my lazy arse weren't so irked by the fitness aspect of it.

They announced the Single Player DLC yesterday.

TLOU : Left Behind, in which you play as Ellie before she met Joel, sneaking around an old shopping centre with her Best buddy Riley.

The lack of choice at the end annoyed me greatly. The game is massively overrated. I was expecting something sublime and instead received an incredibly linear experience, albeit an above average one.

It's a common criticism. It seems that some people have the expectation that all games should provide GTA/TES levels of freedom, whilst still retaining their plot coherence and moment-to-moment gameplay polish.

Seems a bit silly to me. TLoU was the best game I played last year, probably my favourite game of the generation. It would not have been any better if I could've ridden around entire cities on horseback doing mindless sandbox things instead of progressing the actual game.

Nothing necessarily, some games like Portal are incredibly linear but utterly brilliant. What I didn't like in TLoU is how it tried to give the illusion of being open when it simply wasn't.

In addition to what 17332 said about the AI in the game being unrealistic around enemies, some other grievances I had were;

Getting locked out of areas I hadn't fully explored yet because I happened to choose the wrong door/hole to go through. Very annoying when supplies were low and there was no way to then go back.

The 'restart encounter' option would do nothing to undo the above. Often it would restart the encounter at completely random points or at a different place/time, not very helpful when it puts you moments away from several enemies instead of the actual start.

The save and load feature was also screwy, sometimes it worked as you'd expect, other times it would just put you right back at the start of the encounter when you next played, losing all the progress made.

I saw reviews giving this game 96/100, I'd give it an 82.75

Also how hard would it have been to add in a few challenge style modes? Everything they needed was there.

The complete lack of choice in anything annoyed me, especially at the end of the story ... when the fuck is episode 2 of Telltale's latest Walking Dead coming out?

I agree.

As soon as it started getting good reviews people were practically falling over each other to call it overrated, which I find strange. It wasn't ever intended to be a sandbox game, so I don't understand how these people managed to buy it unwittingly. It had derivative elements, but it made a fantastic job of drawing me in to the point where I wanted to do the NG+. Only 3 games on this generation of consoles, for me, can makes such a claim.

TLoU, Dark Souls and Arkham Asylum.

I just finished the DLC, the reviews weren't fucking around when they said it was short. It was uniformly excellent but left me hungry for more, and this is my only complaint really - it didn't fully scratch the itch, and it's probably going to be years until the next one.

The Two of Us?

I was just ruminating about what the title of a sequel would be called and this is the only thing that sounded good. The Last of Us 2: Electric Boogaloo is always an option though.

I agree completely, it ended perfectly. The uncertainty about what the future would hold at the end pitched the atmosphere perfectly, a sequel would ruin that.

They covered the whole range of human emotion and what it takes to survive in the game anyway, a sequel would just tread old ground.

I loved TLOU, and yet I have absolutely no desire to return to any game set in that universe.

Game publishers need to stop demanding that everything be a franchise that they can run into the ground and wring a bit of extra cash out of. Game players need to stop falling for that shite too.

How do the "no more Last of Us" lads feel about this?

I'll watch it, but it'll probably just be yet another mediocre crossover. I've never enjoyed a screen adaptation of a videogame to date (with the exception of the original Mortal Kombat movie, and I'm fairly sure that's just nostalgia).

I read the comic miniseries for TLoU, didn't really do anything for me.

Resident Evil (the first one) is the only one, for me. I went to see the Prince of Persia film with my then-girlfriend and the best thing I could say about that film is that it didn't take itself too seriously.

The missus had only seen the first one until recently, so we watched them in a marathon and she got visibly more depressed and at the end of the latest one was pretty much scunnered. The woman who played Jill in the latest one was a fucking horrible actress, just terrible.

Are they going to tie up the story? The last one ended on a cliff hanger. I just want the pain to end.

I'd play it, I like the first one. It doesn't need to be revolutionary to be good, I like the Naughty Dog cover shooter style in the same way I like GTA; tried and tested formulas work. Add to them, refine them, prune the shit. Don't change them.

Second game confirmed. There's a trailer out, it shows who's in it but little else, if you're worried about spoilers.

Happens to coincide with me replaying the original on Grounded difficulty. I'm generally enjoying getting my arse handed to me, but the sparsity of checkpoints is a right bastard. I'm about halfway through and there's a couple of locations up ahead that I'm dreading.

I'm at the university and only realised a few levels ago that a brick, on its own, is a guaranteed kill for everything in the game if you use it right (except for bloaters, which go down with one properly-placed molotov). Wish I'd known that at the start.

Winter's going to be a cunt though. So far it's been the big areas that have been hard (hotel, library) because they were so huge and had so many enemies, but that enclosed fight with a horde + bloater in the old factory is going to be murder with limited resources.

Yeah it wasn't so bad. Having to do the whole of the hospital in one stretch was much more tricky.

I did the DLC afterwards (Grounded doesn't make much odds here, but it's still great), and then read the comics (eh... I've read worse). Now I'm really fired up for a game that's not going to be released for years.

Oh well.
