*Hands j-blaze some tissues...

Army_of_Darkness1325d ago (Edited 1325d ago )

Until they get back into the #1, games and sales wise;-)

Now I have to temporary stop playing any other game when this game is released.

SOD_Delta1325d ago

Why must we wait nine more agonizing days? It`s not right!

miyamoto1325d ago (Edited 1325d ago )

Oh My Word!

Win Win Win!


The Game Industrial Revolution has begun!

G20WLY1325d ago

Okay, a 10/10 from IGN, 10/10 from Edge (!) and 10/10 from Destructoid...

If anyone is doubting how good this game is, they may need their head looked at!


RedHawkX1325d ago

they are dead everywhere else. They live on the playstation! last of us, beyond 2 souls, pupeteer, knack, drive club, the last guardian, etc all new ips and gonna rock hard.

MVGeneral1325d ago

I love naughty Dog. I so far own and played all 3 Uncharted and this new IP will be the Fourth game of theirs I own.

They sure were busy this generation, I just wish more people bought their games. Quality always.


Like I expected: It is 97 on metacrtics:

I just want to know the feeling of the one who disagreed with me:

Companies that dont make them.

ZodTheRipper1325d ago

All big sites are handing out 10's, even the Guardian ...this is crazy.

FATAL1TY1325d ago

Naughty Dog is the best developer in the world

Enemy1325d ago

10 from EDGE
10 from IGN
10 from Eurogamer

We're looking at GOTY and GOTG.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1325d ago

"Who said new ip's are dead?"

xbox gamers?

starchild1325d ago

Sony has released lots of fantastic new IPs this gen. The Last of Us looks like the crown jewel.

SkidMudFlap1324d ago

Man i wish all the people would buy the game instead of buying a second-hand. It really shows theyre working hard to satisfy us.

Crazyglues1324d ago (Edited 1324d ago )

Is this the highest rated game ever or what?

Just Wow - https://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.a...

Ritsujun1324d ago

TLOU2 and TLOU3 confirmed.

Rainstorm811324d ago

Xbox 360 sympathizers?

I dont know any gamer who is willing to accept no new ips on their platform of matter hiow close the next gen is.

I already decided day one purchase long ago.

as expected.
single player here I comeeeeee

Skips1325d ago (Edited 1325d ago )


Goro1325d ago (Edited 1325d ago )

Sorry to spoil the hype but that's going to GTA5

Edit: What's with all the disagrees, if i said this a week before GTA5's release when it's racking in the 10/10's i would get a load of agrees...

G20WLY1325d ago

^ It's going to GTAV? Really?

How are the reviews looking for that then? lol

garos821325d ago (Edited 1325d ago )

even if gta5 gets goty playstation gamers can enjoy both. and you can bet your ass i will too!

ive recently bought wireless 7.1 suround sound speakers for this game and i cant wait to give them a spin in what looks like the most intense and atmospheric game of this year.

antz11041325d ago

Hasnt been a good GTA since San Andreas, try again. TLOU is prob going to be MY game of the year at least.

Rivitur1325d ago


He has a point not to say games that come out earlier in the year have a significant disadvantage when it some to GOTY but GTA will be fresher in peoples minds however this is bound to take home tons of award and possibly even GOTY over the only two other contenders GTA and Bioshock.

Perjoss1325d ago

To be fair GTA IV is sitting pretty at 98 metacritic score (not that metacritic is to be taken as the final word or anything) and GTA V does look better.

But back on topic, congrats to ND, cant wait for next week to get my hands on my copy, hopefully it gets delivered a day early (thanks shopto).

waltercross1324d ago

@ xYakuzaz

If it weren't for TLOU then I think GTA V Would get GOTY but GOTY's should go to Quality over Quantity sold and since TLOU is a PS3 Exclusive it really Shines. But I do think GTA V Will get some kind of awards to.

JoGam1325d ago

Damn, let me get off of N4G and go reserve this game from Amazon. Amazon is giving a $10 game credit if u reserve TLOU!

JAM_brz1325d ago

Yeaaahhhhh.. I knew..... I knew....

Day One please.... Game of the generation!!!! Or the best ever?

Thanks NG

Goro1325d ago

Nah, That would be Red Dead Redemption

BlackTar1871325d ago

RDR is a great game and i played it multiple times and love it. But i would rank Demon soul up with it or a bit higher.

ZodTheRipper1325d ago (Edited 1325d ago )

^RDR? Seriously?

antz11041325d ago

Loved RDR, hoping some similar free roam multiplayer mode for this game is announced, that would be sweet!

MysticStrummer1324d ago

Demon's Souls is still my Game of the Generation, but I can't rule out The Last of Us until I play it.

@xYakuzaz - Red Dead Redemption was a great game and all, but I'd put several games ahead of it for Game of the Generation. I like how you already know TLoU isn't as good without having played it though. You people from the future always fascinate me.

My excitment cannot be contained now!!!!

UnHoly_One1325d ago

This is ridiculous. I've never seen reviews like this before.


RyuCloudStrife1325d ago

Naughty GODS!!! Day 1 thank you!

DonFreezer1325d ago

The game is for sure a masterpiece but why do you cry so much?Will your life change that much if the game turned out shit.

showtimefolks1325d ago

18 hours on first single player play through damn

ND we have all said you guys are the best, but here it is. At present time ND are the best and most important developer to Sony than another developer to publisher

Now I really can't wait to see what the other team is working on.

And what's better there is a season pass where 2 dlc packs are single players so this is a Keeper

Can't wait to pick up my collectors edition

GraveLord1325d ago

Looks like ND has really outdone themselves.

AKS1325d ago


In that scene in Citizen Kane, he's feigning applause of a performance that was a disaster. I don't think that's the best way to celebrate Naughty Dog's success with The Last of Us.

antz11041325d ago

Regardless of context I think they deserve a slow clap.

AKS1325d ago


As do I, but that scene has a very different meaning if you're aware of the context. I think if you watch that movie, you'll view that gif in a very different way.

-GametimeUK-1325d ago

Can't spell Ignorant without IGN... oh, a favourable score for a PS3 game. I guess we will look past how much we hate IGN for this one review. SMH

CEOSteveBallmer1325d ago (Edited 1325d ago )

I can't believe IGN gave this a perfect score!! Not enough grease i see for their greedy palms. MS studios will have a game which is 11/10, gamers will see. just like i said "Developers, developers, developers, developers"!!

DarkHeroZX1325d ago

I think this game will dethrone Mario Galaxy as the highest rated game this gen.

Godlovesgamers1325d ago

Seriously, what are you getting out of a game that you've never even played receiving so many perfect scores?

And personally I'm very weary of so many reviewers just giving up perfect review scores one after the other with no real criticisms whatsoever. Either they're all robots, paid reviews or "high on the hype". I'm not saying that this game isn't amazing or great, but I've been gaming since Atari and I've played a lot of so-called 10/10 games through the years and can tell you personally I've found very, very few of those games to live up to their perfect reviews.

snipes1011324d ago

So, since IGN rated Last Of Us a 10/10, everyone changes their minds on the legitimacy of this site? I thought IGN was hated here?

Oh, I forgot, that's just when you guys disagree with them. My mistake!

JAMurida1324d ago

Shhhh!!! Don't remind them! Just... watch.

RedHawkX1324d ago

Wow another 10/10! this is getting insane!

miDnIghtEr20C_SfF1324d ago

So as per N4G, IGN's score of a 10 should not matter right? You can't spell ignorant without it right? IGN is paid by MS right?

This can't be true right?

Ezz20131324d ago

yeah but IGN is not the only site who give a 10
96% ..WoW
plz find a dark corner and cry there

Ezz20131324d ago (Edited 1324d ago )

sitting at 96% on both MC and GR

Yup looks like the wait was worth it and the hype was well deserved. 9 more days and counting till we all get to experience this masterpiece.

RedHawkX1324d ago

Yep and also e3 is coming in 5 more days so this next weeks gonna be so freaking awesome man so hyped!

Zones1325d ago

After that 15 minutes trailer a year ago, it wasn't so hard to call on the scores this game is currently receiving. :)

GribbleGrunger1325d ago (Edited 1325d ago )

Oh dear lord!

'PlayStation 3 isn’t only well-known for its number of exclusive games, but for the sheer number of quality exclusives. That’s what makes The Last of Us even more impressive, because not only does it join the ranks of Uncharted, Killzone, God of War, Infamous and more, but it bests them all. In short, Naughty Dog has crafted a game that impresses in virtually every way. The Last of Us is a true feat.'

CaptainSheep1325d ago

Holy shit, I'm getting chills.

SegataSanshiro1324d ago


Gamer19821324d ago

its not just IGN thats giving 10/10 a LOT of major sites are.
