Storytelling: The Last Of Us Vs. Bioshock Infinite

WC - We are still only a little over halfway through the year, but there have already been a couple of serious contenders for the title of game of the year, if not the generation. With this article we take a look at the storytelling within these two games, their similarities, their differences, what makes them so great and what legacy they could leave in their wake. (BioShock: Infinite, PC, PS3, The Last Of Us, Xbox 360)

Stop comparing these games. Just stop it. Right now. Stop.

i'd say Bioshock Infinite, TLoU story was way too simple imo wasn't that deep nor complex

@j-blaze

This is what I imagine you say to yourself as you go along being snide towards TLoU and more specifically towards those of us who actually like this game..

You may not see me but I am here, scrolling, trolling, disliking...

We keep saying that you haven't played TLoU because it is unfathomable to us that one person could have such a negative reaction to a game yet still keep trolling the reviews for it.. I say once again.. if you don't like it great, but keep it to yourself and stop trying to poison those of us who can appreciate this game for what it is, just as you have decided to hate on this game, the majority of the rest of the players love it. There is nothing that you can say that will change anybody's mind.. We get that you don't like it.. Stop trolling every thread about it then and let it go..

I see the problem here, j-blaze equates convoluted to good.

You're fooling absolutely no one.

"Oh I borrowed it off a friend". How ridiculously convenient.

You haven't played it. Prove to us you've played it. Give us a shred of proof, something to show us. I know you won't give us your PSN ID cause you know you're lying.

I remember a few months back when you said you played all those PS3 exclusives that Playstation fans have been raving about like Starhawk, Twisted Metal etc. You were lying in exactly the same manner then, as you are now.

Ask yourself this... Why would someone who has hated on Naughty Dog for years and called the Uncharted series crap play a game they have been venomously hating on for years? It makes no sense. And of course it comes down to the fact that you are full of no sense. You're a bulls***ter - plain and simple.

-
p.s. Just so you know. It's not the STORY that people rave about. It's the STORYTELLING. The way in which a story is told and presented. Through raw emotions alone, The Last of Us is one of the strongest examples of great storytelling in gaming. A more complex and drawn out story doesn't make it better by default.

Why are they trying to compare a first person historical shooter set years ago in a sky city where you obtain mystic abilities and have to fight steam punk monsters along with crazy ultranatiolist orthodox religious nuts.

To a third person action game set in the future where you traverse a broken America fighting infected freak cannibals and crazy non infected cannibals collecting resources and just trying to survive and protect Ellie.

I'd say that the story in Bioshock Infinite was better, but the way the story was presented in TLOU was much better than Bioshock Infinite.
