The Last of Us Review: may be gaming art, but it’s not the art of gaming | DaxGamer

DaxGamer's Robert Showler: "With the exception of GTA V, The Last of Us was my most anticipated game this year. It should have been a day one purchase, but a certain Bioshock: Infinite and an embarrassing Steam backlog put The Last of Us on hold. Having finally got my gangly, spider-like prehensile mitts on the game it’s time to discuss what all the fuss was about."

This same site gave

doesn't matter because this game will be
number one contender for GOTY along with GTA V

lnvisibleMan1474d ago

Why does it matter if it get GOTY. It just a label it doesn't add or take from an already fantastic game.

Bimkoblerutso1474d ago

It is simply perspective, complete with all the bias and subjective opinion that putting that into words entails. Whether we agree or disagree with whatever is said, we should still be able to appreciate that we are looking at the game from a perspective that is not our own.

And just for the record, if everyone is agreeing with every review that's being written, then I have bad news. We may very well have all entered into some sort of unified collective unconscious, and the end times may be upon us.

I finished GTA5's story and have been able to play multiplayer quite a bit. I just started The Last of Us today, but I can already say which game would get my Game of the Year vote, and that game is The Last of Us. I've had some fun and intense moments with GTA5, mainly online since the story is so damn easy, but TLoU has been much more fun and intense so far.

Which means . . . people have opinions?

Philoctetes1474d ago (Edited 1474d ago )

People can have different opinions, but anybody who ranks Dead Space 3 above The Last of Us just has rotten taste in gaming.

This is like somebody saying that they prefer Freddy Got Fingered to Goodfellas. Okay, fine, that's your opinion. Doesn't change the fact that your taste sucks.

SlapHappyJesus1474d ago

You are now the decider of what is and is not shit?
No questions?

Well . . . damn.
I truly enjoyed Dead Space 3 and would probably give it a 9 myself.
Guess I have crap taste.

Thanks for informing me. I never knew.

Philoctetes1474d ago

Yes, as a matter of fact, I am. If you rank DS3 ahead of the TLOU, that's on you.

scott1821474d ago (Edited 1474d ago )

Yeah, I gotta say that TLoU is about as hard to not love as any game I have ever played. I couldn't find one thing I didn't like about the game or story... Every unbiased or even biased person I talk to says it's their favorite game, or at least one of them.

I understand everyone has their opinion, and nobody should ever have that right taken away.. But I have heard people try to downplay this game on various no name sites and every time it sounds like a bunch of bulls**t to me, and I believe them to in fact be full of it.

So? I would give those games about that score too.

I'm not saying I agree with the TLOU score, but I don't see how what you are pointing out is relevant.

testsubject1473d ago

Excuse me but Bioshock Infinite is amazing and deserves that score, even though TLOU dosen't deserve the 8.3, it's not a bad score, I would give it a 9.5 just like Bioshock Infinite

SnotyTheRocket1473d ago

"The same site gave Bioshock Infinite Review 9.5/10" I fail to see your point? Sure, The Last of Us was better then Bioshock, but Bioshock was a great game in it's own right, and If games got nominated for Oscars, It would be in there.

This may very well be my favorite game of all time.

To each their own!

kratos_TheGoat1474d ago (Edited 1474d ago )

god of war 3 uncharted 2 mgs4 lb1 kz 2 is better then tlou. tlou is my goty just like gt5 & beyond 2 souls. but g.o.a.t hell no.

dafegamer1474d ago

doesnt make much sense, since tlou has more improved gameplay than U2, all other games are in a different genre(lbp), so you cant directly compare them like that

MysticStrummer1474d ago

I love those games you listed and I only started TLoU today, but I can already say I strongly disagree with you. TLoU is better than those games in my opinion. Demon's Souls is my GoAT though.

kratos_TheGoat1474d ago

tlou is my goty with gta 5 and beyond 2 soul but game of all time hell no god of war own tlou when it comes to story graphic and bosses.msg 4 no match .lbp creative .kz 2 realism and classic online. maybe i got carry away with uncharted 2

"Having finally got my gangly, spider-like prehensile mitts on the game it’s time to discuss what all the fuss was about."

sounds like you may have been a victim of hype. it might have been hard for the game to live up to it after waiting this long and hearing so many amazing things.

personally i think it lived up to the hype.
