The Last of Us gets the Bioshock Infinite Treatment - Shut Up Already

Have you ever listened to a podcast that spoiled a game for you? Kicks For Games knows how you feel. The Last of Us is already being spoiled and it hasn't even released yet. (BioShock: Infinite, PS3, PS4, The Last Of Us)

Calm down. Can't get away from it. People do it all the time. I have had games spoiled numerous times. Not nice.

Its the journey that matters with a game like the last of us. God forbid other games have something called character development. Well I hope you still enjoy it.

That's why you don't listen to a podcast about a game you haven't played. You have yourself to blame.

But the game hasn't been released. So the only people talking about it are the professionals who should know not to talk spoilers.

Lucky I havnt been reading comments on YouTube and other websites since all the reviews came in. But a few weeks ago I read 1 comment somewhere and this person was spoiling the end, I only read a little bit and I'm not even sure if it was legit.

"So any podcast trying to add to the hype by telling the fans about it is doing it a disservice. I want to go into the game finding everything brand new. I don’t want to go into the game and think “oh so that’s what he was talking about”. I will say it again, Wrong! Wrong! Wrong!"

I wonder why one would be going around listening to gaming podcasts during the time that one of the year's biggest games is being reviewed/released (if they are so concerned about it being spoiled). If there is a game releasing that I am really excited for, I will stay away from gaming sites for a long time leading up to it and only return when I have finished it. As far as I know, nobody is making you listen to those podcasts.

What is it with people and their neurotic fear of spoilers? Get a grip folks, it's just fiction, and it's just a hobby.

To insinuate that a spoiler 'ruins' anything is like saying that you can't play through the campaign of a good game more than once, which is utter nonsense.

Never in my life have I read a spoiler that RUINED anything; this is just one of those things that's pounded into people's heads since birth, and most never question it as they grow up. Spoilers don't ruin jack; grow up.

spoilers ruin the joy a game has to offer; and diminishes the value of your 60+ dollars. I don't see how you don't understand that. Sure it's fiction, but it's also my favorite form of art, and I'm not about to lie down and let someone blatantly ruin my favorite hobby.

Plus someone on this site ruined the ending of this game with one sentence. it's definitely possible. if you'd like to know what it is, just message me lol..

then stay away from websites that mention it

My view on it is people just want to experience the moment for themselves. Put this into perspective, lets say your favorite team was in the superbowl and you were really excited for them to win. Would you rather know the outcome before hand or experience the euphoria of that victory as a surprising moment. I rest my case :P

Good lord I just read a bratty article. If you heard the words, "The Last of Us" being spoken on the podcast and you don't want to hear what they got to say...TURN IT OFF!!! Secondly, everybody is excited about this game and the author is upset because they are excited too? The author is upset because they "tip-toe" around the story? These young gamers complain about EVERYTHING. Nothing can be right in their eyes. It's pretty damn annoying. TLOU has gotten alot of hype and is highly talked about. My mind, using common sense, tells me that if I'm going to video game websites and listening to podcasts, I'm going to run into every Tom, Dick, and Harry talking about this game that descended from the heavens.

"So any podcast trying to add to the hype by telling the fans about it is doing it a disservice."

What in the world? They are gamers, like you!! They are excited about this game, like you!! I don't understand. There's no disservice happening here.

But being bratty?? Yea, there's alot of that in that article. It reads like a spoiled child wrote it.

Well, this is not Xenogears or in that category of ultra-intelligent story, so who really gives a shait? I can easily guess what will happen in this game.

We couldn't be bothered to tell you even if you could experience for yourself you douche.

Never in my many years of browsing the web have I visited a site with so many miserable troll pricks who like to spoil other people's fun. The title of this article alone ruins the ending of the game for anyone with half a brain. Why was this approved? And I don't want to hear, "We'll it's the journey there that matters". No, f@ck you; nobody should be spoiling the end of one of our generations most highly anticipated games one week before it is even released. Cunts.

People on torrent sites get trolled all the time.

I remember when BioShock Infinite came out, there were more seeders than leechers at the time.

So people commented spoiling the ending, that's the only instance when I agree to spoil a game, for the selfish.

However if you're going to pirate a game, you deserve to have the experience spoiled.

What's that got to do with a podcast spoiling a game?
Krew_92  +   812d ago
I was speaking in general spoilers and when you're deserved to have the experience spoiled, but yeah it wasn't on topic I guess.

This is a site were gamers come for gaming news, not a torrent site were they come to pirate video games. I guess the integrity of n4g is about equal to something like kickass torrents though because the idiot mods allow fanboys and trolls to submit articles with either biased or spoiler filled content. This isn't the first time I've seen brand new games spoiled here either. This isn't news. This site has degenerated into a festering piece of sh!t over the years. It's sad.

Im just speculating, either joel dies or ellie dies, same treatment as The Last Guardian. Either boy dies or Griffin dies.
bangoskank  +   812d ago
If you've played Bioshock Infinite this article more than vaguely answers that question.

The trailers have already spoiled a few events in the game, but what's gonna keep me playing is HOW I get to these events. What happens to Joel and Ellie? What kind of predicaments did they get themselves to this particular event?
Krew_92  +   812d ago
I usually avoid the internet when something new comes out, there is always something or someone that spoils something from a movie, game, or any other media.

I admit I had some games spoiled, such as the original BioShock. It still didn't detract from the events leading to the ending though, like you said even trailers spoil some high climax spots of the game but they don't tell you how it came to be.

That's why, when I see something about last of us that is not multiplayer related, I avoid it at all costs. Just few more days people, be patient :)
