An opinion about "The Last Of Us." and is it the best game ever made.
Opinions opinions everyone has a different one. I wouldn't say it's the best but one of the best for sure.
Yea, honestly for me I was pretty unimpressed. It was a good game, but definitely didn't strike me as amazing. I played it for the first time on my PS4, so maybe it lost something in translation, IDK. I didn't like how it played (and for me that is most important) it felt heavy and clunky. The story was great, atmosphere great, but there are movies for that. Definitely like uncharted better.
did u play ps3 or ps4? 60fps compared to 30fps was crazy difference. made it so smooth. story,characters,plot and setting was amazing imo and i rated it higher than uncharted 1 and 3 but close call with uncharted 2. crazy that in my top 5 best games ever that at least 3 of them are from same devs. been gaming since amstrad days too
@nicksetzer1...I agree with this 100%. I thought the story and characters were great, but i just could not stand the actual way the gameplay felt. That is a deal breaker no matter what else is good. I got about 3 hours in and quit. PS4 version.
Well, there's no factual answer to this question as it's completely subjective and we all have our own tastes and preferences. What I can say is that it's one of the best games I have played and it seems that quite a lot of other people feel the same way. I've enjoyed all of Naughty Dog's games last generation.
Uncharted 2 is a better game life to date. The problem TLoU is it came out late in the generation and was stunted with the PS3 hardware. If it came out earlier then yes it would be one of the greatest games ever made.
Agreed. I didn't finish it. Uncharted 2 was better by far IMO. I think for me, it was the stupid zombies and such, and the stress that goes with trying to figure out the right way to deal with each encounter. It just didn't do for me.
I have to be honest, could never get into it. The Last of Us, that is. I have it on PS3 and will finish it some day, but it just didn't resonate with me. I know I'll be getting a lot of disagrees for that, but that's fine. But, best game is so heavily subjective. We're talking about rating games I play now with the games I played 20 years ago and how it takes a lot more to impress me now than it did then. The one game that has stood out to me as the best as far as design, gameplay, storytelling, and the like has been Planescape: Torment. I haven't played a game that is of that level of quality with regards to the type of thing I look for in an RPG, my favorite genre of games, and is still something I enjoy playing to this day when I normally get tired of games after playing them twice, if not just once.
I stopped reading the moment you said you never finished it. I'll go back and finish reading your statement AFTER you finish the game. Also, I suggest you start all over from the beginning of the game (and hard difficulty should be attempted first, as "normal" is too easy). -------------- Edit: The 3 games that I think are tied for best games of all time are The Last of Us and Persona 4 Golden and Phantasy Star 1. And I own over 350 games just from last gen alone, and played the best games from Master System, NES, etc all the way to this new generation.
@PinkEye It doesn't matter whether someone finished the game or not to have a valid opinion on a game. Literally the only difference it makes is on his opinion of the story, which is just one piece of the game. And sadly, many fans of the game have said that the gameplay itself wasn't that great, but the story is what set it apart. Well, story isn't the most important thing in a game to me, gameplay is. If I wanted nothing but story, I'd watch a movie or a good TV series. Not saying anybody's opinion is wrong or anything, but it wasn't the game for me. Gameplay wise it felt like Uncharted and Tomb Raider, which again aren't that interesting to me.
***I stopped reading the moment you said you never finished it. I'll go back and finish reading your statement AFTER you finish the game. *** I don't need to play all of a game to know if it's the greatest game in the world or not. I've played plenty of games that I picked up, enjoyed thoroughly from beginning to start. I've also played games like Alpha Protocol where you know from the get-go that it's not going to win any awards. To say that a person must finish a game to have an opinion on it, let alone understand the quality of the game, is ignorant. Wouldn't the boredom I was experiencing at the beginning of the game get taken into account in the review? You think I'd suddenly forget how bored I was when it picked up 4 or 5 hours into the game? Also, notice how I didn't say the game was bad? Notice how I said I couldn't get into it and that was it? While that may not be important to you, it's important to me and a key factor in knowing that it's just not going to match up to Planescape, a game I have trouble putting down when I play. ***Also, I suggest you start all over from the beginning of the game (and hard difficulty should be attempted first, as "normal" is too easy). *** Ugh, please no? I didn't care for what I played, which was up to getting out of the first building infested with clickers. I didn't care for the human-on-human gameplay and I didn't really care for the clicker gameplay. And, honestly, it took so many breaks from letting me do something worthwhile to me finding a ladder or helping someone up a wall. All those pauses, some of them long pauses as a scene played out, didn't help keep me into the game.
@cgoodno: Hey man, Alpha Protocol was vastly underrated. There was some legitimate brilliance in it's design, except for being marketed as an action game instead of an RPG.
@Lord Maim: While I thoroughly enjoyed Alpha Protocol, from the moment you do the training missions, you can tell there were some design issues with it. It had a ton of potential, but it just didn't get there. It is an example of a game I enjoy, but could never come even close to say that it should warrant winning any awards.
Whooo Just wait till WWE 2K15 comes out Now that will be the best game ever made !! Whooooo Whoooooo !
I agree! It might not be the best, but it pretty close. Everything about that game was done right! The characters made you care about them. The story sucks you in. The gameplay was nearly perfect, it had a few flaws. All in all as close to the best without being the best.
might be in my top 20
I am personally fed up with tlou. Only reason ppl give a damn is because there are so few good games coming out, and zero big budget single player ones.
I've played a lot of games, and I can't say there's a definitive best among them. There are games and franchises that I love to death, and can play almost blindfolded, but that doesn't mean they're the best games ever made even to me. However, TLoU is one of the greatest games of the last generation, my favorite game of the last generation, and one of the greatest games of all time. It is the game to be for post apocalyptic Action/Adventure, Storytelling, Character development, Video Game acting, and more.
I would say there is no way to have just one perfect and best game ever made, because everyone has a different type of favorite game they like. Some people like simplistic systems compared to complex ones and vice versa. You could say the Legend Of Zelda (original) is the best game ever however someone may not like the lack of direction. You could say tales of Xillia is the best but somebody doesn't like RPG's. Its all very subjective and I think we should all stick to our own personal favorites or have like a top 10/25/50/100
The Last Of Us is a very good game... but not the best I ever played.
warhawk is the greatest game
Not by a mile. Definitely one of the better games of the last console generation, but the past 30 years of gaming offer... stiffer competition.
No one can deny the fact that it received the most accolades of any game ever made and it's 95 metascore. Tlou, in my opinion, achieved the best story of any game of the last generation. The gameplay was solid and brutal, but nothing revolutionary. This was a superb game
I think if they said the best game of last gen then it could have a real shot but not best ever game. Great game but there are better ones out there plus its also down to the person playing the game as I know people who did not like it. Just like I don't like GTA games they are not bad games I just don't enjoy them.
Probably one of the best games of the last generation . & The Multiplayer sucks I broke my first ps4 controller the other day
I agree with it being one of the best of last gen. It's my personal favorite. Why didn't you like the multiplayer? I think it's addicting. It's way better if you play with friends that know how to play cuz noobs fuck everything up by constantly running and going one man army and the whole team pays for it. Thats when I get the urge to break my controller as well, lol. Very team oriented game, that's why I like it tho.
I like the Multiplayer , it's just the lag I didn't like
Check your connection. I haven't run into much lag if any at all during my time with it.
I kill 20 and still lose lol . That's the price for playing alone lol . But i never expose my team. Don't think any good player wouldn't love the mp. It's a game where you don't need luck. Your gameplay decide the fate of the match. There were many times where i had one life and the other team had more then 10 lifes and i still kicked their butts and won. So
Really? I rarely experience lag on the game. Runs pretty smooth everytime I play. You get that same problem with other games as well?
One of the best multiplayer a in a long long time;) Why does it suck?
I don't think there is such thing as "the best game" there are do many top notch games stretched across generes to declare a best game. But I think it rightlyfully deserves a spot next to the all time greats like ff7,golden eye, ocrina of time etc
Well said+ :)
crazy that golden eye was prob best movie linked game ever and still is.
I know, its like saying whats the best food. Is it one of the best games....maybe but like many have stated, theres stiff competition. Lets just appreciate its worth without downplaying the other greats.
It's a very very good game. Greatest Game? Doubtful. Best of last gen? Definitely for the PS3 anyways... It's up for anyone's debate, but I am playing through it on PS4 and I am loving the story. Very well written and definitely resonates with you.
Best game of last generation and this generation so far and best game ever created since half life 2
Best game of all time is just all opinion for everyone but I believe for its genre it is the best in that catagory. If there is a better 3rd person survival action game out der then name me one that does it better then TLOU? No one can't because TLOU has set the bar to where it is now & is why it is the most awarded game of all time.
Resident. Evil. 4. Dead Space even
Those games are survival horror games their is a difference but even compared to those games, ill still take TLOU over them both because of the multiplayer for TLOU alone.
Before i play the last of us i was starting to lose interest in gaming but still enjoyed every single game i bought. But after the last of us many good or great games felt pointless to play them which i still bought and felt the same thing. The last of us is the level of gaming i want and i even want it to evolve. I just wish if other games only reach it's level. I am really tired of these pointless games. I played Diablo. It felt repetitive and uninteresting. Bashing the same buttons without thinking is not fun for me any more. The more complicated the game in both gameplay and story the better. So yes , if you compare it to any other game it's the best for me. But it's different situation if you measure the amount of fun i had in previous games then the last of us. I had more fun in cod4 but it's not a better game then the last of us. It's different but not better as overall ...
Salooh I totally know what u mean. What u stated is exactly how I feel about TLOU. Almost every Naughty Dog is created that way with high expectations but even with all the hype that surrounds their games, they DELIVER a high quality all around game. Keep in mind TLOU Multiplayer is only their 3rd attempt at online multiplayer & its one of the best multiplayers out there. That is an amazing achievement for a great dev that basis its strengths on the single player. I believe Uncharted 4 will carry that torch of TLOU & take it to the next level in both single player & multiplayer. I have that much faith in Naughty Dogs talented studio.
I'm sure I've seen that headline here before.
One of the best for sure. But for me, that crown goes to KOTOR.
There is no best game ever made. The gaming community will never, and The Rock means never, ever, come to that kind of conclusion.
That joke would've SO worked had you had an avatar of the rock. You could have even called your username "The People's Champion" or something similar... But no, you didn't do any of that, did you? That's why your joke falls flat.
Shit hot game
No. ...but hey, everyone has different opinions. Most have a special game they've connected to or grown up with that's better than TLOU in a spiritual way- Oh, wait, it's N4G. I can't have opinions. S-sorry... ;~;
Too linear but great sick of seeing these opinion articles
Go back to COD or Gears or Halo--those xbot games are all I ever see you talking about. You're "bro dude" name fits you like a glove.
whats up with the headlines lately? Nope it isn't the best game ever made but one of the best of this generation. Everyone has his own opinion about the best game ever made, So it's hard to write such articles
Not the best, one of the best is a better description.
It's not even in the top 20 games of all time.
It's not the best. It doesn't even belong in the top 10. Had the story not been a complete rip off from a cross between the 1990's dawn of the dead and I am legend... it would be higher up for a lot of people. The obsession with zombies these past few years is a direct reflection on society itself, where people are so self absorbed, narcissistic, and living in their own little social networking world. The subconscious mind is trying to point out to the conscious mind that the zombie is what they've become... but people for the most part are too stupid to figure it out.
It's my favourite game of all time and the most critically acclaimed game ever made. i would say yes it's the best game ever made
The article does not even say why it should even be considered and points out shortcomings if anything. I haven't played it yet but I highly doubt it.
If you think any one game, or ten games for that matter, qualifies as the "best" of the medium... You are a casual gamer and have clearly played too few games to form a legitimate opinion.
Its a damn good game but its not the best ever made, definetly up there though.
Its definitely one of the best games ever made !!!
I dono how ppl can disagree with you on this comment
No but it's really good
The Last Of Us is one of the best games ever made, since Final Fantasy 7.
Lol no. But it is one of the best single player games I have played since Halo.
It's a good game and the polish is there but I never saw the appeal in the game. I played it and never finished it only because it just didn't hold my interest. I will get back to it though as I do think it was a good game. Just not as hyped as everyone made it out to be.
Not the best game of all time,but it's along side of good games ever released.
Top game. I put it in the same bracket as mass effect, witcher 2 and max payne 3. Those were my fav last gen games on 360. Bothers tale of two sons was a special game to me aswell.
Uh, no. Don't get me wrong, the game was pretty damn good but I didn't think it had much replay value personally. The story was great but the gameplay had flaws, especially in regards to the AI and a slight case of repetitiveness.
Nope. Top 20 for sure. I preferred Red Dead Redemption, Oblivion, Half-Life 2, and Halo CE.
