Okay, I want to set a few rules: No spoilers, and no reviews of the game. There's plenty other places to go for that. Let's keep this one on topic.
I just finished The Last of Us, and after getting the tears out of my eyes, I jumped online to see some tips for multiplayer.....and then I found it. Sequel-itis, a disease just as deadly to a video game as the Cordyceps fungus is to humans in that game.
Do we REALLY need a sequel to this game? Does the gaming community even want one? If I want to feel this game again, I'll just wait till it's faded from my mind, and play it again. Why do we need to go BACK to this world in a sequel?
Maybe it's just me, but I don't see a need for a sequel. This was a massively personal story. It's hard to have that kind of story, run on and on. And that's assuming that the sequel lives UP to the quality of the first game.
