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

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.

Hasnt been a good GTA since San Andreas, try again. TLOU is prob going to be MY game of the year at least.
Rivitur  +   691d 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.
Perjoss  +   690d 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).
waltercross  +   690d 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.

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.

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.

Regardless of context I think they deserve a slow clap.

Godlovesgamers  +   690d 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.
snipes101  +   690d 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 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.'

I have all console and a very good Pc.
I have not use my 360 since I played reach , I have not paid for live since 2008 and will never pay for live. My issue is the 360 is a great console but was so mismanaged and nickled an dime that it killed it for me.

I don't hate the console I hate how they handled it.
Sony has done all the right move with the ps3 and I did not regret buying my 60 gig at $600+.

Day 1 ps4 and welcome to gaming my friend , because in the end that what it's all about.

IGN is still a piece of crap notice he never attempted to touch on anything negative about the game nothing is perfect but ign usually nit picks the stupidest things and that is absent on this review. Not saying the game isn't great just saying IGN reviews are more catered to the main stream in order for people to come back for update and gather hits.
vigilante_man  +   690d ago
You are trying to link 2 different things here.

The Last Of Us may just be that brilliant. Time will tell.

But I agree IGN has been shifting lately. The PS4 and the XB1 fiasco seems to have swayed them sone how.

I just wish they has been impartial these past years and not viewed everything through MS-tinted specs.

Yep, this seems to be the mind set of many gamers.

IGN reviewer doesn't like the game:

"How dare he have a different opinion than me? Everyone must share my opinion. They must not have paid him or he only gave that score because it wasn't COD."

But when the reviewer does like a game all of that goes out of the window.

MeatAbstract  +   691d ago
Exactly. Look at everyone's reaction for GameSpot review. IGN, a site that in the past has made people question the sites integrity, is suddenly fine because it gave a game people are looking forward to a good score.

Don't get me wrong, I'm getting this game, have had it on pre-order since January. This is nothing against the game. I'm saying that how can you only trust a questionable site when they do things you like? Does this review not seem questionable when other reviewers have said there can be a few issues with the game?
BlackTar187  +   691d ago
You guys are ridiculous. GO TO SCHOOL.

People happy about one thing does not prove in anyway their like for IGN.

You guys are sad. Don't you have some DRM to support.
MeatAbstract  +   690d ago
People jumping to the defenses again.

Let me get this out the way. I am happy TLoU is getting some great scores. I really am. It's a game I've been looking forward too and am excietd to play.

The point I am trying to make is everyone suddenly loves IGN even though many, many gamers have complained about the site. It was great to see people making a big deal out of the Edge score. Edge can be very harsh in their reviews, I get the magazine regularly and I nicknamed it Eight Magazine since most games they review they give an 8. Plus it's like the fifteenth game they've given a 10. IGN throws high scores out left and right.

IGN have time and time again have been called out for poorly written reviews or doing things like the ME3 stuff which is conflict of interest. Now suddenly everyone is fine because they gave a Sony game a high score. It doesn't work both ways, guys. Same with Kotaku. Guarantee some people will read their review and comment on it even though the standards of Kotaku have dropped considerably.

But you're all blind it. A questionable site gives a game you want a good score and you're happoy, all the past forgiven until they make an article on your console of choice and you start the whole 'You can't spell ignorant without..' crap again.

Tell me to 'grow up', say I like whichever console or whatever. Feel free to check my comments and see I am a supporter of games and don't blindly follow one company.

But no. You see logic as a hate attack against your precious console and company. Any negativity is immediately hate even though it's towards a website and not the game.

So why would you be happy about a review from a questionable website? A website that a lot of people here have bashed in the past.

It's ok though, pick out that one line and ignore everything else. Everyone read the review then and go on about how great it is and then next go on a tangent about how IGN are stupid the next time they write something that criticizes a console. Hypocrites.

Kingthrash360  +   691d ago
no but they got this right.....I think its because they wanted to play it ...or the fact that this isnt a vita game.....(really who complains about finger cramps and long levels in gaming?....see killzone vita preview)... but this game is a 10.. so what am I supposed to say they are wrong? that would be trolling...now if they said Remember Me was a 10 then I wouldnt agree...though a 5 is a lil too low imo ..they are just so inconsistent in their ratings that people will call them out on it. comes with the territory when your site is popular and respected. now days they seem a little bought out......

Where are all the people that hate on IGN? Usually you will see comments like "You can't spell ignorant without IGN", "They only like Call of Duty", "They must have not paid enough", or "They paid them to give that score". When they have a different opinion they are perceived as unreliable and ignorant but when they agree with you they some how gain credibility and are suddenly a reliable source of information?
