Default The Last Of Us (NO Spoilers Without Tags!)

I just finished this and holy sweet mother of all things holy and just that game is fucking awesome. The most amazing game I have ever played hands down, it doesn't have the best gameplay nor does it have amazing replay value but the story makes up for all of it. I have never been more engaged in a game, the level of excitement and emotional investment compares to Sons of Anarchy and Boardwalk Empire for me and that is some bloody high praise I can tell you!

If you own a PS3 go buy it tomorrow and play it, it's a work of fucking art.

As it says in the title NO SPOILERS WITHOUT TAGS! otherwise I will hunt you down and shiv you.

The only thing I know about this game is the Penny Arcade review that mocks how your assistant can walk up to the enemy without being noticed. Is the rest of the game more gritty and challenging?

Some of the sections of the game are very challenging, you've got to really think about how to use the environment to your advantage.

As the NPC Companion being able to stealth their way through the entire game, yes this is the case, however I have played enough escort missions in other games to know just how frustrating it is to have the NPC bumbling around like some drunk retarded loon setting off every trap or sentry in sight to prefer it this way.

I've finally gotten around to playing this again and finally completing it. And yeah, one of the best games I have ever played. It was just so immersive, emotional and full of depth and character development. The two voice actors for Joel and Ellie deserve a shit ton of praise, no voice actors have ever captured their characters and conveyed their emotions as well as these two did. Naughty Dog just rock when it comes to games.

As for spoilers..


Beyond amazing this game. Just beyond anything that's come before.

Bear in mind they weren't voice actors. It was done in MOCAP with facial capture and voice capture. They did the movement as well as the voices. That's why it's such a frickin awesome performance.

Oh I know, but in other things where that's used, the vocals still fall a bit flat. Not in this though.
