Why The Last of Us Will Be Dissapointing

The Games Cabin's Andrew: "Anybody who occasionally visits gaming websites, or just the internet in general, has heard of Naughty Dog’s new game, The Last of Us. The game is considered to be one of the most anticipating games to be released in the near future."

Ah, yes.This site again.New to N4G with only 14 submissions, each one more hit grabbing then the last.

LOGICWINS1725d ago

I wonder if you would have complained if the article was titled, "The Last of Us Will Exceed the Hype"

Ryan_Hay1725d ago (Edited 1725d ago )

If the title followed the trend of hit grabbing headlines with no substance, then yes, of course.

For a guy with Logic in his name, you don't use it very much.Or were you just saying anything so you could reply to me and have your comments at the top? I know how much you crave the attention.

LOGICWINS1725d ago

Woah, personal vendetta much? I was simply just curious about what you would have done if the article was positive in tone as opposed to negative.

GarandShooter1725d ago

C'mon Logic, he saw though your veiled implication that his opinion was fanboy driven and you reply with 'I was simply just curious...'

Gimme me a break.

Random internet dude: My awesome girl just bought me Far Cry 3 with her hard earned money.

Logic: Does your awesome girl make her hard earned money being an overweight one-legged prostitute?

Random internet dude: WTF? What are you trying to say you @$**#*@!!!

Logic: Woah, personal vendetta much? I was simply just curious as to how she was gainfully employed.

LMAO - that was the most hilariously shit attempt at digging yourself out of a hole i have ever seen.

"i was simply just curious" - yes, im sure you were just sitting there stroking your wisened beard while contemplating peoples opinions on an article.

Temporary1724d ago

no one has a personal vendetta Logic, it's just no one takes you seriously because of your post history. You're one of the biggest jokes on this site it seems.

On topic:

People with obvious superpowers to see into the future should be using that power in meaningful ways, not to scope out future releases in the video game industry. :(

Tell us what happens on Dec. 21st!!!

Fez1724d ago

I like you LogicWins... you ask the hard hitting questions that need an answer :)

MikeMyers1724d ago

This article is premature at best. The only reason I can think of for it to be a disappointment is because of all the hype and that the bar is set too high. That happens with a lot of games. Still, I am very excited to see how this game turns out and everything I have seen looks excellent so far.

modesign1724d ago

logic, i hope you know there are alot of brown nosing articles in here too, they get the same treatment due to the fact the articles are poorly written or have little to no factual information, so its not one sided, its both spectrums that get the troll article treatment.

WrAiTh Sp3cTr31724d ago

Even if The Last of Us got an accumulative group of negative scores from most websites, ND fans would still try to spin the game as being the best thing on the planet and shoving it down everyone's throat who visits n4g. I honestly don't see what all the fuss is about concerning the game anyway.

"The Last of Us Will Exceed the Hype"

Well knowing naughty dog which one is more likely?? They will not fail. Especially since sony gives them all the time they need no rush.

The idea for a single player survival game in to today's console industry? Good job to sony for funding this. Beyond is next.

No one can say anything simple because of the fact that it is a new IP at the end of a generation. Who else is doing this? oh yeah there is a new halo right?

Getting my moneys worth.. ps4 can't wait.

geddesmond1724d ago

Yep I agree with everyone else replying to logic. The whole website thinks this dudes a tool and how he has 5 bubbles is beyond me. He probably created a thousand N4G user names and logged each one in to vote his bubble count up. Dudes a sad loner with nothing better to do

Christopher1724d ago (Edited 1724d ago )

***I wonder if you would have complained if the article was titled, "The Last of Us Will Exceed the Hype"***

Not likely, but then again that's not the point of such a title. Don't play devil's advocate too much that you know that titles like the one above are done solely to get hits and rile people up with negativity, which doesn't happen as much with positivity.

The real question is if it would get as much recognition if it was titled "Why The Last of Us Might Not Meet Expectations" which would be more appropriate.

Ben_Grimm1724d ago (Edited 1724d ago )


You see Logic if he would have complained that the title was:

"The Last of Us Will Exceed the Hype"

Then he would have been marked as a troll and de-bubbled. This site and its commenters reward people who bash negative articles pertaining to their favorite consoles under attack.

It's rare to get bubbled up in a positive article. That's why the negative articles gets all the heat and action. And yet you can find the same people in each of them posting the same "Another doom and gloom article" over and over again.

Outside_ofthe_Box1724d ago

@Grimm and Logic

I'm not surprised you agree with Logic, Grimm.
How is "The Last of Us Will Exceed the Hype" hit grabbing or meant to get a rise out people?

It's not, so of course it would be likely he'd be marked down for trolling if he complained about that particular title. But if the title were something like "Why The Last of Us Will Make All Other Survival Games Look Mediocre" then you guys have point, but then again neither of you'd be asking such questions or making such claims if this were a positive article.

Ben_Grimm1724d ago (Edited 1724d ago )


"I'm not surprised you agree with Logic, Grimm."

Interesting, how am I agreeing with logic? I just stated exactly what would happen if he would have complained about an article praising a game instead of downing it.

"so of course it would be likely he'd be marked down for trolling if he complained about that particular title"

And that is exactly what I said.
I don't see where you are going with this.

You say:

"You see Logic if he would have complained that the title was:

Then he would have been marked as a troll and de-bubbled."

I assume that you are implying that him being marked down in that instance is a bag thing or that he shouldn't be marked down. I'm saying that he should or deserves to be marked down in that instance because the title wouldn't be "hit grabbing." If that isn't what you are implying then what is the point that you are trying make?

kupomogli1724d ago


If the article wasn't bashing The Last of Us, I'm sure no one would have bothered with it.

Dee_911724d ago (Edited 1724d ago )

didnt logicwins have like 2 bubbles a month ago?
Dude tell me your secret.

OT awesome article.Well written and well thought out.very sublime title.

Article written by this:

"I'm Andrew, and I'm a Canadian. I eat beaver tails (Although that's more of a local thing), I play hockey, and I love the snow. Despite my love of the outdoors, I'm often in my basement, playing my video games. I'm also a brony."

Clearly a creditable journalist. /s

P.S. Not knocking Canada here, just the writer himself.

jelydonut1724d ago

brony!!! hahhaha! I assume most people didn't catch that.

Abdou231724d ago

Actually i really don't get why this game is so hyped ?! I don't say it's bad or don't deserve it, i'm simply saying that despite the short gameplay video we still can't judge and say it's going to be awesome and things like that or is it just because it's an " Exclusive " ?!!. We need to wait and see whether it really delivers. I for one haven't seen any thing to impress me yet.

Gamers are ruining this industry.

3>2>1> And here starts storm of disagrees....

Awesome_Gamer1724d ago

"Why i deseprately want hits"

Fixed the headline for you...

BlackTar1871724d ago


"Gamers are ruining this industry."



Christopher1724d ago

@BlackTar: In a sense, yeah.

Gaming journalism is directed at the gaming audience in a manner to get hits. Gamers talk more about negative articles like this than they do positive articles that focus on gaming as a whole rather than negativity towards specific games. Therefore, gamers have lead gaming journalists to create more hit seeking articles that they click on the most rather than stories that we actually say we want to read which tend to get lost in the overflow of negative, fanboyish articles.

The desire by the gaming community to be overly dramatic about their gaming has turned gaming journalism into the equivalent of a soap opera and not credible news.

"but the length just won’t be there, people will complain that they didn’t get their money’s worth. "

his opinion or argument has no factual basis or reference at all.

don't waste your precious time on this one, peeps

Bimkoblerutso1724d ago

You guys are too sensitive. I don't agree with the article either, but can we stop acting like these authors are microwaving kittens every time they write articles that aren't cheerleading for Sony?
