Why The Last of Us Remastered Shouldn’t Really Exist

CraveOnline: "I’ll admit that when The Last of Us Remastered was first announced, I felt a tinge of excitement. I bought the game when it first came out, and due to it being released at the tail-end of the PS3′s life-cycle, shortly after completing it I palmed it off to my girlfriend, along with the console. I put a few hours into its surprisingly competent multiplayer, too, but when it was announced for the PS4, I relished the idea of diving back into it for a few more hours. But now that I’ve come to my senses, and have been inundated with a variety of side-by-side comparison videos and screenshots, I can see that The Last of Us Remastered is a game that shouldn’t really exist. At all."

Then dont buy it. Story over.

JackOfAllBlades1572d ago

My thoughts exactly, if you don't want to play it, don't buy it. Don't take it out on the other people who do want to play

xHeavYx1572d ago

I'm sure all those people who didn't own a PS3 also disagree with this article

InTheLab1572d ago

The author is also lying about the amount of critisism MS received over the Master Chief collection. Just about everyone is excited to not only get the H2 remake, but the other games packed in as well.

The only thing I can agree with is launching an obvious cash grab at what is really Sony's most disappointing year since 2007 with a port of a last gen game being the highlight for it's exclusives. It's simply not what we've come to expect from Sony, especially with how epic 2013 was.

Nearly HALF of current PS4 gamers did not own a PS3 in the past, let alone played The Last of Us.

Also, TLOU:R on PS4 is cheaper than TLOU PS3 including all DLC.

"...due to it being released at the tail-end of the PS3′s life-cycle, shortly after completing it I palmed it off to my girlfriend, along with the console."

Right after the game comes out he ditches both the game and the console. Three words describe the flamebait writer.


That idiotic line in the header above is sufficient to prevent me from clicking on another craveonline article...ever.

One of the greatest games ever made comes out and right after that you get rid of the game, excuse me, you palmed it off, and the console for which it is made.

Really? And you think we should listen to you and your completely worthless opinion about games?

You want to know what shouldn't exist? Cheap websites with equally cheap, uninspired hit pieces.

What shouldn't exist? Failures masquerading as journalists.

What shouldn't exist? Human blueprints - people indistinguishable from the individual next to them for they haven't even a modicum of insight or imagination and resort to feces slinging articles in order to gain attention.

No, there are a great many things (craveonline) that should not exist in this world but The Last of Us Remastered is not on that list.

Yeah apparently he didn't realize that because new consoles were out didn't mean new games weren't coming. Tales of Xillia 2, Tales of Zestiria, Persona 5, and more coming to PS3 exclusively.

DeadlyOreo1572d ago

Kingdom Hearts 2.5 is the one I'm waiting for.

madmun1572d ago

You make me smile. Thank you for such a well articulated and accurate comment.

The author is a joke. I seriously can't understand how a person can lack so much integrity and dribble such contradictory nonsense and then expect people to soak it up?

Honestly, I don't think the author expects people to agree with him. It is just pathetic flame bate to get hits. Like I said, no integrity.

Dfooster1572d ago

You said what I was about to type.

mark3214uk1572d ago

only xbox owners dislike TLOU because they cant play it and because it will boost ps sales even more,leaving them even further away

FanboyKilla1572d ago

Lol its his opinion. You sony fans are so sensitive. Look at the comments. Lmfao nothing but sony fans defending the game. Why are you attacking someone because they dont agree with you? Its a fuc*ing video game. Go play it and shut up. In a week we will have all forgot about tlou again. If n4g lets us. Tlou, tlou,tlou. Lol you talk about overhype.

@pat dont read article then. Story over.

HeWhoWalks1572d ago

Just stop. There's a reason you lack bubbles.

OT: Another one of THESE articles, eh? The simple solution to these types of things is to not buy them. Everybody who wants it will buy. These articles will have no impact on that.

Chevalier1572d ago

My store sold all our stock within days of launch. Its moved more units then Titanfall for the same period of time and I am turning people away regularly. So no this is for all those people who didn't own a PS3 and now have PS4's.

Keith Olbermann1572d ago

I just talked with a friend who bought a ps4 havent ever owned a ps3 and he is in love with this game. This article should not exist.

Eddie201011572d ago

It really isn't much different than multi platform games being released on last gen and next gen. The fact that it is less than a year old seems to make more sense to me. It is estimated that nearly half of the people that purchased the PS4 did not own a PS3, that is a new audience for the game. $49.00 for the game with $30.00 of DLC and commentary, much nicer frame rate and big improvement in graphics seems like a pretty good deal, especially if you haven't played it before.
Plus I would rather buy a physical copy of a game, especially this game considering it is highly rated and has won more awards than any other game.

Personally your problem with this game seams kinda silly, Sony is mostly catering to a audience that has not played the game and people that want the better graphics and most of all better frame rate. Sony did not set out to insult anyone, them releasing TLOU on PS4 should not be taken as an insult by anyone, It's really just an option for people that bought a PS4. Sony is not forcing anyone to buy the game.

assdan1572d ago

Exactly. I loved this game, and I don't want to turn on my ps3 again. This and gtav are the only 2 games I still feel compelled to play on my ps3. I bought this day one and don't regret it for a second. The screenshots don't do the upgrade justice. It does look like a next gen game. Everything about it just feels better, and I'm enjoying it more now than I ever have. If you don't think it's worth it, I disagree with you. BUT I still respect your opinion, and I can completely understand where you're coming from. What I'm tired of is seeing people talk about this thing like it's awful. The ocarina of time has been remade 3 times now, and has been on 4 consecutive systems. Windwaker has been on 2, and majora's mask has been on 3 consecutive system, and yet I don't see any complaining about those ones. Which there shouldn't be, but it's kind of a double standard if you ask me.

I can see it from both sides, but personally, I am really enjoying it again.

Godz Kastro1572d ago (Edited 1572d ago )

I also see this from both sides. I haven't played it yet. When I eventually buy a PS4 this will be the very first title I play.

On the flip side the word remastered for a title less than a year old does seem like a double dip...

GTA is doing the same. Initially i was going to buy it but i think i might skip and just play the slew of titles out this fall. If i want a little GTA action ill just turn up the 360.

d4v03331572d ago

While I understand what you are trying to say with seeing it from both sides but there really is not both sides to this there is only one side which is if you haven't played the game before buy it and enjoy this awesome game and as for the second side it is if you don't want to buy it don't buy it nobody is forcing you to buy it.

SCW19821572d ago

I have both copies and once you play in 60 FPS there is just no going back. By the way this article is straight garbage. WTF and NO this crap.

sipale1572d ago

the 60 fps really did it for me. Can't even consider going back to 30 fps. Loving the game all over again!

ThatEnglishDude1572d ago

Kind of a moot point considering it DOES exist and is being enjoyed by many.

ArtificiallyYours1572d ago

It's a great game, get over it.
