Top 100 Games of the Generation: The Last of Us #1

hardcoregamer:" The Last of Us was an unparalleled achievement in gaming. Although not enough time has gone by for its inspirations to be fully felt, it’s as close to an instant classic as a game can get and will surely be remembered in the decades to come. Pushing the PS3 to its limits and looking like a next-gen game, The Last of Us is absolutely beautiful, drawing players in with its abandoned cityscapes and depictions of the wonder of nature. There’s multiple moments that have stuck in player’s minds long after experiencing it and it’s hard for it not to feel like a fine piece of art in that respect." (PS3, The Last Of Us, Wii, Xbox 360)

Right up there with Fallout 3, Skyrim, Red Dead, Heavy Rain, GTA5 and ME1 + ME2 imo.

I agree, the game is a masterpiece, even if the fact that it is #1 will hurt the feelings of people who never played the game
gillri  +   741d ago
No ME2? I prefer ME1 in alot of ways to ME2 but all in all I thought ME2 was the better game
GarrusVakarian  +   741d ago
Fixed it :) Don't know why i didn't include 2 because i think its pretty much a better game in almost every aspect. The only thing i liked more about ME1 was the mako and the rpg elements that got taken away in ME2.

Not even close to overrated. I don't know that it's necessarily THE game of this generation since so much of that is going to be subjective and vary from one person to the next, but I'm pretty comfortable saying that it's my personal GOTG.

It basically comes down to TLOU vs. Demon's Souls for me.

How can you say it's "not even close to overrated"? The game might be good, might be great, but some people act like it's some divine game that transcends reality and its existence makes all other games seem like Amy. I mean, unless you honestly believe it's so great that it does all the aforementioned things, then you should be able to admit that it might be on some level overrated.
Philoctetes  +   741d ago
I'm saying it's not even close to overrated because when people talk about it being the best game of this generation, they're at least in the right ballpark. Yes, I know TLOU will not cure cancer.
MultiConsoleGamer  +   741d ago

Red Dead Redemption
Ezz2013  +   741d ago
@dagr8jibraltar and @thefallenangel

i'm ok with this too
Larry L  +   741d ago
IMO the "Top 10" for me, or at least the Top 5......they're all pretty much tied for #1. I wouldn't choose between them. A top 10 or whatever list is impossible. Top lists in gaming need to be split up into genres to be anything other than a long list of highly rated games.

So that said, all my #1's are.........

#1 MGS4
#1 Heavy Rain
#1 Dragon Age: Origins
#1 Uncharted 2
#1 Skyrim
#1 God of War 3
#1 GTA5
#1 Batman Arkham City
#1 Gears of War 1 and 2
#1 Gran Turismo 5

Honorable #1 mention: LEGO Games, especially Star Wars and MARVEL. Also ME1, CoD4, GRAW2 and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 1.

Can't agree more with #1 this game blew my mind from start to finish the experience of playing TLOU was something I'll never forget in my life so amazing/awesome game ND surpass their selves with that one so it's more than justified that every1 call them the best SONY first party studio they create one "Game Of The Year" after another.
ltachiUchiha  +   741d ago
TLOU will be GOTY. Trust me as good as GTAV is. The online multiplayer for TLOU kills GTAV Online & TLOU campaign is better. Mark my words, Naughty Dog are the best devs this gen & will continue their greatness with ps4 to add to their portfolio.
wheresmymonkey  +   741d ago
does it deserve to be in the top 100. certainly, does it deserve to be #1. No. Its a great game and a fantastic story but it didn't have the kind impact for me at least that the likes of Fallout 3 or the original bioshock did.

I think this is a case of it being freshest in the momeory as apposed to actually being the best.
RaptorGTA  +   741d ago
Great story and visuals...along with great sound...but..eh. I dont see this being game of the generation. I played it..rented it..and I have no itch to play it again. I have more of a want to reply and experience Skyrim, Alan wake, or even Call of Duty 4: Modern Ware fare.

Again..not saying it doesn't deserve to be on the top 100 list..but number one? Eh everyone has their own opinion.
90Supra  +   741d ago
COD4 deserves to be waaaaaaay higher than where it is...

Not a COD player.....but that was a game changer...

No denying that...
