This week Dustin and Blake compare BioShock Infinite and The Last of Us in terms of their AI companions, worlds, and use of violence. Join us for an interesting look at both games.
Love both but i think The Last Of Us takes the cake.
2013 gotta be one of the best years in gaming history, we were spoiled with 2 amazing unforgettable games so far. BioShock & TLOU are so great, they are totally different. The only thing they have in common is having a female companion. I like the intellectual approach in Inf, and Emotional approach in TLOU. For me, I prefer TLOU. Simply because it's really hard to connect emotionally with gamers. You don't get this kind of game everyday.
Bioshock Infinite was much more memorable for me!
Lol at the disagrees, even tho u said 'for me'
Yea, no kidding! Guess some of these cry babies dont allow people to have their own opinion. Maybe next time it would be better if i left out, the for me part! Really give em a reason to cry! The mentality of some of these kids. Haha!
yeah and those disagrees are saying that TLOU was more memorable for them...not every person has to write a reply to every single post in order to express their opinion to whoever they want to reply to. Whats the point of complaining about degrees? just cause people click disagree does not mean they deny your opinion or that you aren't allowed an opinion. The fact that you generalize and start naming calling just shows how much of a kid you really are. While on the subject i am currently playing through Bioshock Infinite(half way) and it is a good game but for me it doesn't compare at all to TLOU which i played near release date over 4 times and have since watched numerous lets plays and streams of tlou SP/MP. While i'm sure i'll like the story i doubt i'll spend as much time as i have with tlou once i finish my 1st playthough and go again for the 1999 mode
It's a disagree, not a dislike, and people who enjoyed TLOU have every right to disagree with your opinion.
IMHO, I enjoyed Infinite more than Us. When I played the games I was hyped about the dialogues between the main characters, and I found the dialogues in Infinite to be a little bit superior. I did however love both games.
There were not much dialogues in Infinite, most of them were scriptet that means you can't miss them. That's different in TLOU. There are dozens of optional conversations with Ellie and Joel, just by looking at something an as example or finding something, or just little interactions give you a whole new experience, because they give you an even deeper look in the characters. If you rush the game, you won't know important stuff from the characters and their history.
I guess there's different opinions on this, but I really enjoyed these scripted dialogues.
I think it's just great that we have two games from around the same time where the talent of writing for characters has come to the point where we can relate to them and not just some old here’s a pretty girl for you to rescue.
***Spoiler for Bioshock Infinite***
It's good that these games went for the parental role instead of love interest. It puts you in a more protective state of mind and with so many gamers now getting to the age where they do have kids I think we can relate to this.
Both are very different stories. One in the past with future tech and the other in the future where everything has gone low tech, they are very different playing experiences.
I think because Last of us is based more in a real world I think I related to that more.
Both great games but TLOU for sure. What an amazing experience. I think I paused TLOU about 4 times because I was so overwhelmed at how great it was.
Yes, Bioshock Infinite is great, but TLOU plays is on a different level.
I loved both games so much and they both have there strong points. Bioshock Infinite was one of the greatest artistic achievements in gaming history in my opinon. Simply looking at the city of Columbia gave you so much insight as to what the artists were trying to convey to us and it was very much a character itself and such a triumph of the imagination. The Last of Us was great because of its emotional character driven narrative that was not afraid to go beyond the limits of what we are used to seeing in games up until now. I love both games very much and they should not be compared at all in my opinion. We shouldn't have pick one game over another.
Both of the games are great but I think that "The Last of Us" is one in a kind game, an experience that everybody should have. I think that Naughty Dog as we speak are the best developers in the game industry, and i want to thank them for "The Last of Us". I am waiting to see their next project.
I agree 100%, Naughty Dog is at the top right now and in my opinion the only people that can dethrone them is themselves.
my friend, i'm 39 and still i was suprised from this "diamond".
The Last of Us had a better story and was able to draw more emotion I thought. I love Bioshock as a franchise but The Last of Us to me was better in every way. Not only game of the year in my opinion but I put it right up there with the first Gears of War as game of this generation for me. Oh and I liked Ellie's dialog a lot more than Elizabeth. The story development between Joel and Ellie couldn't have been any better either, it was perfect.
Bioshock Infinite, TLOU very close second
They are disagreeing that i personally found Bioshock more memorable? Trying to say that i didnt find Bioshock the better game? WTF lol. Yea, that really makes alot of sense! Once again, some of you guys out there are just a bunch of babies and just dont want to accept the fact that not everyone enjoyed TLOU as some of you did. Just accept it and move on, who cares. Its a frikin game! Not everyone has to like what you do! Just like not everyone has to like what i do. For people to disagree with what i found more memorable as a game, is just flat out immature. Thats why i refer to those people as kids! Disliking and disagreeing are two different things. Get it right next time!.
