I can see why people might say the zombies weren't really necessary to TLoU but I liked fighting them and they broke up the human-human combat.

Naughty Dog said they are not zombies :)

^This, they're humans who have become infected with a parasite like fungus that grow out through their brain and eyes. ouch.

AND it's a real thing! Cordyceps!

The Last of Us has joined RE4 as one of my fav games of all time.

Transporter471720d ago

Same here, love both of those games, can't say i like one more then the other because they were made in different times.

Cam9771720d ago

It's this generation's Resident Evil 2 or 4 - whichever one you preferred.

i dont like RE 4 its the reason why the RE games now sucks its the reasons for the changes RE5&6 has the same gameplay of it tried to copy it but failed and RE4 is not scary its not survial horror at all

Yodagamer1720d ago

Modern Resident evil games don't suck because of re4 they suck because they tried to attack a new audience afterwards. If they had stuck closer to re4's formula it would have been better. Although I think if they went with a game closer to resident evil revelation's ship segments from now on they'd be better off.

I always found it ironic how people praise the hell out of RE4, but hated 5 and 6, when 4 basically laid the ground work for what the franchise is today. If I had never played Resident Evil, then 4 would have been awesome, but after you get out of the village area early in the game, it loses all tension and claustrophobic atmosphere for me. It's sad how Capcom basically birthed the genre and then walked away from it own their own merits.

mgszelda11720d ago

It is sort of a bitter sweet irony. But RE4 brought new life in the series only to be snuffed out by Capcom itself with uninspired sequels.
I find it kind of funny too b/c to me RE was always that game that reminded u, that u were playing a game. Classic Boss battle esque fights and lots of puzzles.
TLOU did it very different. It came together on all ends. It makes every encounter different each time u go through. I mean yea they dont really have the old school boss fights, but honestly I think it would have ruined the feel of the game.

RE4 was better imo
imo = In my opinion.
My opinion = Not your opinion dumb asses. x3

HammadTheBeast1720d ago

Your opinion. Which people disagree with. Hence the disagrees.


Pittoo1720d ago (Edited 1720d ago )

TLoU is overrated and RE4 is better...that's his point

Salooh1720d ago

Pittoo1720d ago

Picnic1720d ago

Clickers really are a scary enemy- they're like Silent Hill nurses crossed with RE chainsaw guy.
