Bioshock Infinite VS The Last Of Us: An In Depth Comparison

Choosing between The Last Of Us and Bioshock Infinite is like choosing between pizza and pizza. In other words, you can’t get more delicious. As we cross the halfway mark for 2013, let's compare the two forerunners for Game of The Year 2013! (PS3)

THE LAST OF US All the Way .

INFINITE all the way.
TLOU was a ladder simulation.
Edit: The author knew about n4g fanboyism so no wonder ladder simulator won.

Oh yea, of all the 3 or 4 times you actually pick up a ladder to get somewhere.

Sheesh, did ladders murder your father and rape your mother or something for you to hate ladders so much?

Dead Islands luggage-opening simulator is the worst.

Still better than sky-dumb-line simulation !

2 great games, 2 great stories

BI has a great SF plot with twists and explored philosophical concepts

tLoU is best blending of Storytelling and gameplay yet, and the best character exploration yet, and experience that can rival the best movies and novels while staying true to it's base as a game, it presents a true progression story telling in the industry. for this it edges out Bioshock Infinite IMOO.

What you butthurt for not liking TLOU
BiggCMan  +   948d ago
I agree. In my eyes, Bioshock doesn't even compare. It's a solid game, with no real issue at all, but it's no masterpiece like Last of Us. I put up a review on the front page a few weeks ago and gave it an 8 personally.

It's just that generic ass gameplay with firefight after firefight that hurt the game over all. And the finale with those damn dropships just ruined my feeling towards the game all together. It was the most generic final fight they could have chosen.

Now Last of Us, my goodness. The gameplay was OH so satisfying and perfectly done. The fact that they had this realistic weapon sway like you were actually not a professional with guns just shows that it's no casual friendly gameplay.

The story is leaps and bounds above Bioshock to me, because it actually made me tense up and become frightened at certain points, and nervous for certain characters. I didn't get this with Bioshock at all, and is not worth the worldwide praise it got in my opinion.

"Choosing between The Last Of Us and Bioshock Infinite is like choosing between pizza and pizza"

More like choosing between a pizza and an icecream lol. Two completely different games. I enjoyed TLOU more, but I wouldn't compare it with Infinite. At least not with the specific points (gameplay, story, etc..), like you did.

I understand they're completely different and I've got to say it was quite hard comparing them, so i can see where youre coming from.

I just thought as they are both some of the highest rated games of all time and have been released quite recently, it could be quite fun. Hope you enjoyed the article!

Yes I did :)

And by the way, I disagree about the ending. I thought TLOU's was flawless and an actual reflection and interpretation of the whole game itself. The ending of Bioshock Infinite is excellent, but a bit unfocused and confusing. Personnal opinion, of course.
TotalRevue  +   948d ago
The ending was the hardest category i would say! I whole heartedly agree about TLOU's ending; it was pretty much perfect. I was expecting a happy ending but they decided to just go their own way and go against conventional 'and they all lived happily ever after'.

I just really loved how Bioshock came together in the end. All the loose ends sort of joined up and there was revelation after revelation. I also enjoyed how it opened up the universe for entirely new areas and places, as well as the return to Rapture.

But, as you said, personal opinion :)

Bioshock seemed so fake and CoD-ified. Especially after playing TLoU.

And whoever thought Infinite's story was clever, it was so pretentious and cheap.
Anyone can create a purposely convoluted story just to make themselves look intellectual.

But it's extremeley hard to create the brilliant, natural dialogue of TLoU. And to create an ending that isnt some cheap time-travel stuff.
