VideoGamer: "As The Last Of Us: Remastered arrives on PS4, people have started discussing whether Naughty Dog's masterpiece deserves the praise thrust upon it. VideoGamer.com looks at both sides. Warning: Spoilers."
its in my top 5 of all time for sure
It's in my top 5 as well, but definitely not number 1. And not worth the extra money for the remastered. Waiting for the last of us 2 instead.
@psychotic: how can a game you've never played on a system you've never owned/don't own be in your top 5?
It is extremely hard to say. A lot of games were incredible at their time but now they feel dated (so it is hard to go back and compare; avoiding the Rose tinted glasses effect). Though it is up there with my favourite games of all time
Yeah I reckon it is.
It's subjective. For me it's overrated as hell, hardly would call it a masterpiece. Personally, Journey and the Metal Gear Solid series are what I'd call "the best games ever made".
MGS1 and 3 were great, 2 had its moments, 4 was just.....very odd
Journey?! The glorified walking simulation? I had it preordered (was more impressed with free dynamic wallpaper than with game) and came away unimpressed. Loved TGC's Flower game though. But Journey as best game? No way. "Brothers" was a way better game than that and alot of people who played it think so--but unfortunately not many have played it despite it being offered on ps plus for free for a brief period.
I tried Journey and just could not get into it. I feel bad about it.
MGS was not overrated? I mean if it came out today with the same hype it did as the first, you'd have everyone saying it's overrated. It seems like when everyone likes a game someone has to say it's overrated.... Overrated means it got super high reviews but the majority of people did not agree with those reviews(Example: Titanfall). When the overwhelming majority agree with the reviews, it doesn't make it overrated because not everyone will like it. lol
No but it's close.
Not even top 20 of all time. Sorry, but it's really not.
U can't really call one game the best game of all time but in my opinion it is up their with the best games of all time but definitely the best in its genre. My favorite game of last gen & i loved uncharted 2, fallout 3, & mgs4 & mario galaxy.
Yeah I agree. There will never be the best ever game as not everyone will like it its down to the gamer playing to where it stands for them not what other people say just like most things in life. Its abit like saying who is the best football player to ever play football, Or what is the best ever car made. People will have their own opinions and views. One thing we can say is it was one of the highest rating games of last gen.
I would say it is the most significant game of the last console generation ... but definitely one of my all time favorita games
It's not the best, but it's on my top 10 list of one of the best games. Personally my best game is Bioshock 1.
Is there any way to block news articles of a particular game?
It's called ignoring the articles. You should try it sometime.
I know dude. So tired of seeing the front page filled with this game. It's a port of a last gen title but we're still seeing developer commentary on it as if they just created it. I love this game and do think it's in the top 5 all time but damn....TLoU remastered is still just a port and does not deserve all of this attention.
Why not? So what if it is a port? It's game play is the best this new gen so far and even has better graphics than some of this gens games.
Best you could probably do is look under a news tab thats unrelated to Playstation.
Better than nothing I guess.. thanks.
It's in the top 5 for me. The design of the game could use some extra work, but overall, it's just such an incredible journey (I'm halfway on my first PS4 remaster playthrough), that I cannot find anything to match it. This game is one of the few games that actually lived up to the hype and more.
Best game ever made... It's a great game but it's not the best game ever made, maybe one of the best Playstation games ever made, but come on, best games ever made are games like Ocarina of Time, Half Life 2, Super Mario 64, Final Fantasy 7, etc. Uncharted 2 is a better game than The Last of Us in my opinion, I reckon that's Naughty Dog's best game.
Says the pc fanboy.... (Your comment history is easy to check btw)
Why does my preferred platform matter, I own a PS4, I'm not entitled to an opinion on platform choice? I've played and beaten the game, in my opinion, it's a great game no doubt and undeniably one of the best games ever on a Playstation platform, but it's overrated and doesn't rank as a "masterpiece" of gaming, but that's just my opinion. Here's my copy of the game, any more excuses? http://gyazo.com/350cdc78d8...
(waiting for djplonker's reply to TheBoy)
http://tinypic.com/view.php... Tell me a games that is better in your opinion that's on any of the above systems so I can know what you are judging it against? (OMG I have a high-end pc but I prefer my ps4 dont tell the master race)
Games that are better than The Last of Us? Off the top of my head, Uncharted 2, Halo 3, Super Mario Galaxy, Red Dead Redemption, DOTA 2, Metal Gear Solid 4, Link Between Worlds, etc. Those are just recent games and there are plenty more, that's just my opinion though. Did you really unplug all your systems and your PC just to take a picture... God damn I'm in your head #mindfucked
I consider your comment fair and wouldnt label you a fan boy. I loved last of us labeled it best game of the generation but I wouldnt say best game ever made. The games you mentioned were huge game changers in the industry that revolutionized their genre. The last of us was an amazing game with an amazing story. I felt the relationshio between joel and ellie was beautiful and how your actions in the game had consequences. But the gameplay didnt revolutionize third person shooters. It certainly upped story telling in the industry for sure. I would put it in my list of best games made but making a list of my top 10 favourite games is hard enough let alone saying best game ever made. Persona, zelda, metal gear, mass effect, bioshock, final fantasy, kingdom hearts, halo, unxharted too many good games to give one the best.
What a cliché list.
It's about what it does to you and there simply are no games who touch you like this one. Unmatched! And after this one and Uncharted 2 please bring us another masterpiece ND
One of the best.
Red Dead Redemption is the best game of the previous gen.But for me Deus Ex:HR is my favorite.
I liked RDR, but it had WAAAAAAY to many fetch quests...
I pick UC2 as the best game ever made
Uncharted 2 > The Last of Us
Both top notch. It can be argued either way in regards to last gen
Im going to have to agree with you there. And even then I'd have to say uncharted 2 isn't even the best game of all time. For me Last of us was fun it has great story, excellent characters and atmosphere. But it is extremely overated. There are way better games out there throughout every generation.
No. Not a chance. There were better games at the start of last generation.
It's my best game ever
IMO, no. TLOU is an excelent game, but it really didn't bring anything new to the table. It's certainly a masterpiece in it's own right, but I think there are many more games that did many things right and did it first.
Enlighten us. How does any game these days do something new? Im curious as to what game are you talking about that merits similarities to the last of us.... I doubt you will say even logical once
Well, maybe that's the problem - games these days are rehashing old ideas with prettier technology. Now, in my opinion, some of the best games are the likes of Doom, Deus Ex (the first one), Silent Hill (first 2 or 3), Tomb Raider, Thief (first two)... Here you go, just to name a few. Now THESE are the games that did something new (Doom - pioneering quality FPS; Deus Ex - narrative, multiple choice; Silent Hill - psychological survival horror; Tomb Raider - pioneering TPS 3D action adventure/platformer, Thief - do I really need to say anything about this masterpiece?) Thing is, I've been gaming since the late 80's so I pretty much saw that moment when originality in games was starting to fade and 'safe things/design decisions' took over. The other problem is that people that started gaming with PS2/3 or little earlier does not remember that period of time and then are quick to proclaim an excelent but definitely 'been there, done that' game as a 'best EVAR'. Now, I would like YOU to tell me what is exactly so revolutionary good/never seen before in TLOU?
Okay are you asking if it redefines a genre or if its doing something new? Well how about the fact you get to play as a 14 year old girl that knowns how to handle a knife and a rifle against the infected? How about the facted this is a fungus infection and not just your typical zombie game. How about the fact in online it gives you the ability to join a faction and depending on how well you do, you have days that tally down how many survivors you gained or lost throughout the day. Before the last of us I can't recall a game without mods that showed the death of children in videogames. Day z is technically a mod to arma but I can't recall other games where you are able to pick up small items and collect them in your bag and from your bag you are able to invent bombs, molotovs, nailed bats and planks and pipes on the go while you have these items. Dead rising 3 does this but this is after the last of us released and the previous dead rising games you needed a bench. Fallout just allows you repair items, but also needs a workbench to invent items.
As I said - TLOU is an excellent game, with great story and atmosphere, and I'm not trying to deny that. I guess my point is that calling it "the best game ever" is really stretching it. The best thing in TLOU is the story and while it is very good, it is nowhere near as layered or complex as a story in games such as Deus Ex (for example). Horror elements and presentation are something that Silent Hill (or even Resident Evil) has already done before. Again, I enjoyed the game thouroughly, but I feel like I've seen it all before. The game is good but it's not groundbreaking in any way. It does not raise a bar in any department but it doesn't need to. It's a good game as a whole, and it'll be remembered as such, but it is not a "milestone" like, for example, The Pandora Directive or Doom or Deus Ex were and these games are considered classics. Cheers! :)
Definatly my opinion it is the best game ever made. Made a big impact on me which no game has ever done..both story and mp are frikkin tense. Bloody wonderfull..
I wouldn't go that far, but it is a great game... It's definitely one of the top games ever made. A masterpiece It's going to depend on what each individual expects out of a game. I think best game ever is probably in Ninento's catalog, given how influential some of their franchises have been to gaming as a whole.
with so many people, with so many different opinions. Metal Gear solid 2 is my all time favourite game.
I think it's really interesting you said MGS2 as it is often regarded as the most controversial. I liked it as well but it isn't often that you find people that openly admit to it.
By "controversial" do you mean "worst?". At the time, without the context of the later games, I really hated the plot of MGS2. It was only years later once 3&4 were added that I was able to enjoy it at all.
Absolutely not. You can argue for the best story of all time but there are games with better gameplay, better music, better graphics, etc... game has an insanely great story and some of the best characters in game history but those are the biggest thrills about it
Wtf you are all crazy! I'm loving the last of us, playing in survivor mode with no hearing sucks! But god Jesus, this game is good but The Legend of Zelda OOT, GTA VC, FF7!? MARIO GALAXY? Lets please consider our options. It was an amazing way to end the last generation! Why does GOW3 not get the recognition it deserves
I think it's a generation thing man lol. All the games you listed were simply amazing. But you forgot that FF6 was better than FF7 XD! Lol
Thank god someone who thinks 6 is better than 7. I was beginning to think I was alone in the matter.
I think it's a tie between 6&7.
Hmmm.. I always thought FFVIII was better than the rest. But then, I never played FFVI
ff6 is the best rpg ever made bar none end of story.
@th3br3w Lol I dunno man.... DAT chrono trigger.
All considered. All excellent. I'd just stick to last gen. @vile. Lol dont start with that ff6 vs 7 stuff
It's just opinions, though. For me, Zelda OoT is the most overrated in the series. I actually got bored and that didn't happen with any of the others. I adored A Link to the Past (at the time) far more and thought WW was much better too. With all the other games you mention, I'd agree there's a strong argument for them, but TLOU would be in top 3 of those games for me without a doubt. And Shadow of the Collosus would have to be up there somewhere too; it was spectacular and got increasingly emotional as you began to realise what was going on...
I still think pound for pound, Uncharted 2 is the best game Naughty Dog has ever done. The Last of Us, is VERY, very close to that. Best game EVER made? Opinion varies, but as far as weight of industry impact goes, I don't think it belongs in that echelon. Let me put it simply, Final Fantasy 7 made the Sony Playstation what it is today. It broke sales records, sold consoles and ignited big competition. In its own right, a ground shattering gaming achievement for its time. It's harder for anyone to look back on it now to see WHY it was so good, but if you were 7 or 8 when it dropped and put that disc in for the first time, you were treated to something that you had never seen, and would never be replicated again.
I totally agree with you, FF7 changed everything! I do hope you were able to play Chrono Trigger. That was the game that started me playing JRPGs. And you repeping MF Doom, you on it man, on another level yourself!
I think it's one of the most PERFECT games ever made. I wouldn't call it the best because there are other games that either reach or come near to reaching the same level of perfection but offer something more unique to the table. Here's an example: Super Mario Galaxy 1 is typically praised more than Super Mario galaxy 2 because of the innovation it brought to the table, whereas the second is perfected more. Most people would place the first above the second. The Last of Us is kind of like Super Mario Galaxy 2 in that sense.
No, it has one of the stronger stories in gaming but I think it takes far too much from film to be the best game of all time. It's a great game, I enjoyed it quite a bit, but at the same time it's not without its problems (which seem to go unmentioned) and if it was the greatest game of all time ever it would have been decided before getting a remaster. To each his own I guess but there are other games that are just as good and better if you ask me.
ONE of the best, there will never be THE best game ever made.
If it was possible to be more than 100% correct then your answer would be it. However you can't get more than 100% correct so you are going to have to settle for that.
Great comment! Let the dev do their best to make the best. So we can play these beautiful games on each platform we love
There won't because nobody will ever play every game ever made to be able to definitively say so. :o
Unless you've played EVERY single game that has ever come out, you can't speak on this topic...even from a subjective point of view.
