The 12 biggest nitpicks of The Last of Us

GamesRadar: "It's been one month since Naughty Dog released its apocalyptic opus onto the gaming public. That's one month to scour every last inch of The Last of Us, one month to fall in love with Ellie and Joel through multiple playthroughs, and one month to poke a little fun at some of its microscopic flaws."

Yeah I agree with some of these like how time fast forwards at certain parts in the game I understand why but I would liked to have played certain parts. Also I might be the only one who didn't like that Ellie can't be seen by enemies it broke the immersion at times, there was a part where a hunter was walking around and he bumped into Ellie it was funny but I wish they could see her.

So true...and still my only knock on the game. But you still gotta love it.

RedSoakedSponge1741d ago

hahaha i love that comic strip :P

minimur121741d ago

by the way guys, SPOILERS

ZoyosJD1741d ago (Edited 1741d ago )


Don't worry.

You clearly haven't played the game, so I'll tell you now that this comic strip doesn't spoil anything story related. It's a parody on the AI.

BluEx6101741d ago (Edited 1741d ago )

@ZoyosJD think he's talking about the article. And yes the article has Major Spoilers in it. But if you haven't finished the game, you shouldn't be reading these types of articles to begin with. And also shame on you for not finishing this masterpiece already.

ZoyosJD1740d ago


Then he shouldn't have responded to me seeing as I had a link.

The article has it's own spoiler warning.

I already finished the game, but then again that was totally intended for me, wasn't it. /s

It broke the immersion but it would have been infuriating if they spotted her all the time and messed everything up for you. I completely understand why Naughty Dog chose to do it.

assdan1741d ago

I'm sorry, but I don't agree with this. The reason they cant do something like that is because it's not your fault what they AI does. When something that isn't your fault gets you killed in a game, it's called bullshit. Like in World at war on veteran when you are surrounded by 8 grenades. There's no challenge, the game just kills you for fun sometimes to make the illusion of difficulty. There are some things that I kind of agree with in this article, but most of the points are stupid. Also, does anyone have a clue what he was going on about with Bill?

CaptainYesterday1741d ago

Well I and a lot people think that Bill is supposed to be gay watch or replay Bill's part in the game.

assdan1739d ago

I should have been clearer with what I meant by what was going on with Bill. I agree that Bill was supposed to be gay. That seemed pretty obvious. I meant what the Hell was this guy talking about on the part of the article where he talked about Bill. It was incredibly disjointed and incoherent.

Mr_Nuts1741d ago

I do agree about the items still being their when it changed seasons and I totally agree on the crafting system how you couldn't use any kind of cloth or sharp objects for shivs off broken windows or anything else your found out there.

Xenomorph1741d ago (Edited 1741d ago )

The point of this was lack of resources. Sure they could have made everything salvageable but ND wanted to make you conserve. If we are going to nitpick, how about the "I can easily reach this ledge about 2 feet above me" when in water.

Nitpicking old video game tropes isn't doing anything justice.

andibandit1741d ago

Or the small things being picked at here just solidifies TLOU as a great game.

SeraphimBlade1741d ago

Yeah, I agree about the "combat medic" thing. When the game went to Winter, I was honestly hoping it would double down and have you play as Ellie the rest of the game. I just kinda rolled my eyes when Joel got back up and almost immediately started kicking ass. Good thing the rest of the story that followed was so damn good.
Also, it all happened because of the ONE TIME she doesn't help you when you get grabbed with her unbreakable knife. "Why didn't she stab that guy?" is right up there with "why don't they cast life on Aeris?"

linkenski1741d ago

Mine would probably have to be that the change from season to season didn't have a good flow. Summer is basically over 50% of the game and then fall and winter is just slapped on top of it. Another one is that Winter felt like a filler episode.

RIP_Weazel1741d ago

Huh? Winter's awesome-possibly one of the best in the game!

assdan1741d ago

The Winter part was the best part of the game.

linkenski1736d ago

It wasn't bad at all. It just felt like a spin-off.
