<< LINK REMOVED >> Everyone pulls the "they got paid" card, huh? Not working, buddy. Guess what, I think The Last of Us deserves a 6.0, but simply because I disagree doesn't mean I'm going to say, "they got paid, obviously, derp!!!!1"
Considering the user score is even higher, and plenty of other gaming sites have the same average score, what's your point? Deal with it, people like this game.
<< LINK REMOVED >> Wait, so you want towns and NPCs in a world where you main characters are being hunted by the government? Do you realize how stupid that sounds? And if it took you 35 hours to reach Gran Pulse, that's sad. It took me about 14 hours, and I was still having fun before then.
