@punkerfrank: Why is it a dumb statement? TLoU came from Naughty Dog, who for the last decade made Uncharted a third person action game. When TLoU was revealed, it immediately became globally popular as it was coming off the success of Uncharted. Which is fine, I guess, as people who like a certain developer's offerings are common to buy their other IPs. But that said, it is possible for mass amounts of overhype and overrating to occur.

Same thing is happening everywhere. We're SUPPOSED to love Anthem/Andromeda because of the Mass Effect trilogy. We're SUPPOSED to get super hyped on Fallout 76 because Fallout 3 and New Vegas. We're SUPPOSED to piss ourselves on RDR2 because GTA 5. See what I'm getting at here?

Never gonna say TLoU is trash, it isn't. It is just SEVERELY overhyped and overrated due to it's developers pedigree and prior accomplishments. But I, along with many others, are just going "meh, I'll play it eventually on sale". But I don't care if others are excited for it, good on them.

I don't know why exactly, but this game is gonna be a bargain bin game for me years after release. The first game was essentially Uncharted: Drake's Depression, it had its moments, but ultimately was a slog to play. The first game was about love according to Druckman, and now Part II is about hate. I don't know how to get into a game that already has insanely graphic violence be all about hatred. Maybe I'm weird, but I don't really like to exist in games that are THAT extremely dour and sad. And I've platinumed Metro 2033 and Last Light.

Crucify me, but The Last of Us is extremely overrated. It's popular because fans love and adore Uncharted. Period. Story-wise these games aren't better than your average television drama, and the gameplay and mechanics have never been better than Uncharted games. At times it's worse than Uncharted.

But I guess if you're already filled with sadness and anger this will be the perfect game to slash throats and see blood splatter everywhere while the person chokes and gurgles on his own blood. All because some chick is pissed off at the world.

Hard pass until $10 or less.

@gargungulunk: Are you eight years old or something? Games have definitely not always been $60.

@subspecies: Yeah but how lengthy is the NPC content gonna be? Will players finish it in a day? I think so.

I definitely do not foresee this NPC/traditional Fallout gameplay to be more than 5 hours. Think Automatron in terms of length.

Bethesda is just doing damage control, which is nice to see. But I remain ultra skeptical when it comes to making this game anything more than just a vapid looter-shooter.

Since Keanu's basically your Cortana in this game, it'd be awesome if you're standing idle for too long in the game Reeves says "You gonna jump or jerk off?"
