I'm heading over to Gamestop later to sell some games and they have a deal where if you use the credit toward a pre-order, you receive 30% extra credit. So, I'm considering pre-ordering one of these two. Which would you pick?

The last of us seems like it will be a better option. Naughty dog is a really good developer. Go look at the videos on youtube. The game looks amazing.

Ill still get tomb raider though probably when it drops in price.

Tomb Raider gets the sentimental vote from me so I'd probably get that first. I will end up with both though.

I would go with Tomb Raider.

Uncharted was the most generic shooter ive ever played, so im guessing LOA could be a generic survival horror.

Wait, you acually expect Tomb Raider to be good? Have you played a Tomb Raider from this gen?

Uncharted basically is the same concept as Tomb Raider, except it's actually good - err at least it's polished on PS3 and tells the story effectively. It might not be the most original concept ever, but at least it gets the job done. Tomb Raider Underworld runs at like 20FPS, and the game itself is full of glitches and bugs. I fully expect this new Tomb Raider to be another disaster in the making, and it too will be generic.

It's pretty sad the best Tomb Raider game on PS3 is actually a PS2 remake of Tomb Raider: Anniversary.

I'm getting both, the Last of Us is one of those rare games I will spend 60$ on. I do very rarely. Tomb Raider looks great, once it drops to 30$ I will pick it up as well.

I've seen what I'm sure everyone else has seen on The Last of Us and I still don't get why everyone is so excited. I think a lot of people are relying on Naughty Dog's pedigree, which isn't a bad thing, but it does ignore the fact that it's being developed by a separate team from the Uncharted folks. There will certainly be help from the other half of the Naughty Dog team, but I feel U3 wasn't as good as the first two.

While Tomb Raider looks impressive, I wouldn't even hesitate to pick The Last of Us. It's definitely a GOTY contender for 2013, looks outstanding.

TLoU. The setting and story were the first thing I thought of when I heard ND was making it. Even if it doesn't live up to all the hype, it still should entertain for many hours. I hope it's just a stand alone title. We don't need sequels to everything. Let them try out something new for a while.

-

TR will be in my collection before long. If I hear great things about it and it runs smooth, it'll be a retail purchase. If there are issues that will bother me with the game, I'll pick it up at a discounted price or used.

Tomb Raider is a dead franchise, it should remain dead and only seen seldomly at electronic museums. The Last Of Us wins by default.

Not even a second thought for me. Last of Us is right up there with GTA V as my most anticipated game of this coming year.

Definitely The Last of Us. I honestly haven't been that impressed by Tomb Raider, whereas The Last of Us looks like it will be an incredibly atmospheric, unique experience that will be a must play game.

I pre-ordered The Last of Us quite a while ago. Don't really have any interest in yet another Tomb Raider game. I didn't even get two hours into the last one before putting it back on the shelf. It just wasn't any fun.

Uncharted copied Tomb Raider. Both are great though.

If I'm not mistaken LoU is still a long ways from releasing. Tomb Raider is just a few months away. If they were released the same day I'd get LoU. But I gotta tell you TR looks awesome. I'm gonna score both.

i´d get Tomb Raider first. i´ve seen some trailers and it looks amazing!! But i´m suspect to say that, because i´m a fan. I shall take TLoU too, but if i´d had to choose, I´d go to TR.

TLoU looks like the ultimate survivor game. I got my pant **** just watching the trailer LOL. Very promising

Tomb Raider. "Last" looks like a waste of time and money - I don't think I'll ever buy or play that crap. So sick of hearing the name, I could wretch.

Tomb Raider. That's my most anticapated game right now. Looks so amazing. Don't get me wrong, I'll still get Last of Us also.

If they come out at the same time, I'd grab both although I'll be grabbing the PC version of Tomb Raider. Both games are pretty hot to me.

The more I see of Tomb Raider the better it looks and I like what I hear about the game. The Last of Us should be good but I don't think it's anything we haven't seen before the Tomb Raider franchise looks like it's gonna reinvent itself.

Tomb Raider came out in 1996 Uncharted came out in 2007 Yet Tomb Raider copied Uncharted? The younger generation needs to learn their gaming history. Just a shame that you make this accusation.

There was a famous quote... Let's see if I can recall it correctly...

"Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat inaccuracies of other boners on forums, and look like an uninformed jackass."

I think I para-phrased a bit, but that was the swing of it, essentially...

:D

He was referring to how the newest Tomb Raider looks to be taking a bit too much inspiration from Uncharted. I don't think he actually thinks that Tomb Raider in general ripped off Uncharted.

At least that's what I hope.

Which ever one drops to $20 first. That's the one I will buy first.
