When an updated version of a last-gen game gets this much attention, you know something is amiss. The insane hype for this game isn’t really merited.
95 metacritic. The rankings were held by a dedicated blog Gotypicks, where Naughty Dog’s The Last Of Us took over the Number 1 spot from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as the game that received the most Game of the Year awards from critics in history. The Last of Us won 231 awards. Critics chose 181 and the Readers chose 50. Beating The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim by 5 awards. Although Skyrim is still the most rewarded game by the readers’ awards The Last of Us now holds both overall awards and Game of the Year awards from critics. http://gearnuke.com/the-las... you were saying?
pretty sure when Wind Waker HD came out, a lot of Sony fans were complaining about a game getting an HD treatment. Maybe this is a little bit of backlash for that? I mean Wind Waker was 10 years old, TLOU isn't even 1 year yet. TLOU looked fantastic on the PS3, so maybe it wasn't necessarily the top title in need of an HD treatment. Just my two cents of course.
Wind Waker looked fantastic on Gamecube, so maybe it wasn't necessarily the top title in need of an HD treatment...except there some people like me who never played that game.
I never saw any though im only one person. I never played wind waker either so I must ask, how is it? Im interested in procuring a wii u in the future
@SuperBlunt - fantastic game. If you missed it on the Gamecube, then well worth a playthrough. The HD version makes the game look even better.
There is no point in spreading logic on this site when it doesn't favour Sony.
Im assuming it is a very lush and colorful game due to its art style. Alright I think ill go look into that, mk8, zelda u and ssb
VGRHQ: "TLoU Remastered Has Received More Hype Than It Deserves" Haters gonna hate! I'm not alone in loving the PS3 game and I won't be alone in loving the PS4 remaster.
Well if the remaster got 281 GOTY awards it'd definitely be amiss People are excited because for many it was the best game of last generation and Sony have stated a majority of PS4 owners have not played the game before and will get too now with all the DLC with touched up graphics
You sure that was Sony fans? Whenever PS3 got remasters it also got hated on.
This article has given vgrhq.com more hits than it deserves...
And not a single WiiU owner complained about Deus Ex or Arkham City when it launched a year later. Hell, Deus ex was 2 years old when it finally landed on the WiiU. It's just a port dude. You guys need to relax.
***"pretty sure when Wind Waker HD came out, a lot of Sony fans were complaining about a game getting an HD treatment. Maybe this is a little bit of backlash for that?"*** lol wut? Are you sure about this? HD remakes have been hated on since their inception. I recall PS2 games being remastered being a huge problem. Remember people saying that Sony removed PS2 BC just so that they could resell games as HD remakes whenever a PS2 remaster was announced? Now it seems like remasters are ok, but it has to be several years old while before the very idea of a remake was frowned upon.
@Outside_ofthe_Box - I just simply meant that Sony fans seemed to point out the fact that Nintendo had no games so they had to resort to remastering a previous game. Just noticing a trend so far with the next gen machines from Sony and MS.
The Last of Us Hype is deserved, good day (Smacked the author rightside the head).
I always though kakashi sensei was such a badass when I watched naruto on toonami. Him and zabuza I think his name is
And unlike Skyrim it was only on PS3.
TLoU PS4 deserves all the hype. Not everyone has the same taste in games, but being the most awarded game in history says something. People who didn't have a PS3 should be glad it's coming, and people who did might just be excited to play it again with improved visuals. The bottom line is, you know it's been a slow year when a remaster has a legitimate chance to be the best game released and people argue about whether it can be considered for GotY again. TLoU is one of the most hyped PS4 games of the year just like TMCC is one of the most hyped XB1 games of the year. Both have other good titles, but that's a sign of a slow year for new releases. Next gen will pick up speed in a big way, starting this Fall, but especially next year.
I would say it's the biggest remastered release ever. The game was just that good, and the console (PS4) is just that good. Plus there are a lot of people who still haven't played it, so it's almost like a true next gen game to them. It's just the perfect situation, this isn't your typical re-release
if you don't like HD remakes don't buy them simple as that, how many times have we gone through this crap HD remakes are a way for people to play a game they may have missed on past consoles. wind waker was awesome TLOU will be awesome and so will GTA5 and Halo collection it comes down to this: IF your favorite game is getting a HD collection/remake than you are fine(for example Halo collection is being called the best collection of all time) but if its another game you have no interest in than just bash it
TLoU is a great game but it's getting what too much hype for a simple remastered version. If this was Microsoft that hyped this much a remastered game, they would be heavily criticized by fanboys and gaming journalists alike, claiming that Microsoft should focus more on new games. Every single day there are about 20 articles about TLoU remastered edition. I've said it and I'll say it again, Sony has been getting way too much free passes this console generation, especially from the gaming press.
This article has probably received more hits than it deserves.
That deserves a bubble.
You give him one of yours, you have a ton OT: TLOU is an amazing game, and it's getting the praise it deserves
Your right. -mind blown- Well said.
The author is right. Any other time of the year this game wouldn't have gotten anywhere near the attention it is getting right now (which is a smart move for Sony). But that doesn't matter. It was a phenomenal PS3 game that is getting its PS4 debut. It has fans who have cried out to Sony for this since its initial release. It is what the fans wanted and they are obviously making a big deal out of it (for the reason I just mentioned). No need to be a kill joy
The good thing about The Last of Us hype is that It lived up to it, unlike Watch Doge. This Remaster treatment will live up to the hype once againg but at 1080p 60 FPS.
Disagree. Watch Dogs was a better game than TLOU. (in my opinion)
@Unholy I stand correct, this is the saddest attempt at trolling I've ever seen. @Unholy below You just added "In my opinion" in your edit, nice ninja edit try though
I'm not trolling. lol How is that trolling? I liked Watch Dogs more than TLOU. It's just my opinion. I liked a ton of games more than TLOU, that's just the one he used in his comparison. Not everyone likes the same games, you know?
it's a good game, but it didn't blow me away like the devs said it would. And it feels like a GTA V clone most of the times. Can't go back to play it again. I platinumed and let it collecting dust. I got bored of it very quick.
@Unholy_One its trolling, you should have said "Watch Dogs was a better game than TLOU in my opinion" then it will not be considered trolling
@UnHoly_One And I disagree with you. You are entitled to your opinion, even though I can't see it being shared by too many people who have played both.
Now it says "in my opinion" I'm not sure how that makes any difference. Anytime anyone says _____ is better than _____ it's an opinion. It shouldn't need to be qualified as such. Wow, didn't mean to get everyone so riled up, jeez.
lool Watch Dogs actually was a overhyped game...its not bad but it still is some GTA wannabe
I disagree but I respect your opinion
Lol! I absolutely love watchdogs! But the last of us is pure sex 9 a game disc!
@Unholy one That's like saying candy crush is better than Halo You seem awfully outraged when people tell you that your opinion of TLOU is ridiculous trolling, which frankly it is. Yet you fail to see that you're making a mockery of yourself by shoving your "Opinion" down their throats - Subjectively you may think this game is terrible (lmao). However, objectively i.e. when you look at the facts, TLOU is a masterpiece that deserves it's place on the ps4.
I've always thought that hype is in the eye of the beholder
I don't know what it is exactly about TLOU that makes the haters extra mad lul
It doesn't make me "mad" by any definition of the word, but I do think it is overblown. I didn't even think the game was good. It was mediocre at best. Just like all the Titanfall haters thought that game was overhyped, and this is getting more attention on N4G than Titanfall did. I'd love to have something to read about besides this game, but it's literally almost all there is on here.
Oh please, comparing this with Titanfall quality wise is laughable, don't embarrass yourself lol
TloU mediocre at best...nice trolling there
I'm compared it to Titanfall in terms of Hype and not being able to avoid it on N4G. I wasn't talking about quality. And I'm sorry I don't love every game you love, but yeah, I thought TLOU was just an OK game. I don't get it, sorry.
You can try and claim innocence all you want, but then you continue to put the game down. I agree with the majority, you're trolling for sure.
"It doesn't make me "mad" by any definition of the word, but I do think" Yet you responded to Master's comment, not in a general manner, but as if it was directed at you. Interesting.
Let's see 1) Sony exclusive 2) Better than many new gen games (including online mech shooters) 3) Made by Naughty Dog, which makes haters hate even harder
TLOU overhyped? But one of the N4G 'top stories' slots isn't about TLOU today. There's still room for more hype! :P
I agree, the game was good, but after the first play though it was easy to move on. MP was a complete waste, the game relied on strong story-telling (until the end) and voice acting, the gameplay was good for what it needed, but was really about moving from cutscene to cutscene. While being a good game, it's probably the most over-rated game of all time. The first one benefited from releasing during a summer drought, and now the second looks to capitalize on the same thing...again it was a good game...I'm glad I played it...but it almost seems like there is a weird cult that follows it trying to force people to believe it's the best game ever. (and here's where I get labeled an Xbox Fanboy Troll, and cussed at and called stupid and told that I never had a PS...and that I need to "prove it" ...simply because I have a different opinion. That kind of offensive screams insecurity...sorry...It was a good game...but way over-hyped).
You get labeled a troll because you lie, twist, and contradict yourself in order to create straw man arguments to confirm your own strange obsession with a particular plastic black box.
This article is about to heat up fast. Better get popcorn and a chair. On topic: Although I don't think The Last of Us is the best thing ever created in the history of gaming, like some of it's fans do, I think it deserves most of it's praise. It is truly a fantastic game.
Tend to agree with the article. But whatever, it's easy to avoid if you don't want to read about it. Still, i guess it's due to the lack of heavy hitters on the immediate horizon.
No it hasn't all I see is people bashing it. People hate on this game Becuase it's so good.
It's the highest rated game of last generation and I haven't played it yet so pardon me for being extremely excited. Overhyped my ass.
I tend to agree the game is great and everything but "highest rated game of last generation" , GTAIV took that , actually a lot of other games took that . but as awards go , TLOU got the most awards .
Actually GTA V is rated higher on metacritic, just saying...However still looking forward to replaying the PS4 version.
The Super Mario Galaxy games are higher rated.
A lot of people seem mad about the attention TLOU is getting. Oh well.
Author must really be hurting for clicks. Can you say flame bait?
i know i can
Who cares,it's one of the best games of last gen.The more hype=the more sales & people that get to enjoy this masterpiece,also the more risks in new Ips...
I think it is being overhyped. It has 4 out of the 5 top stories on n4g which all roughly talk about the SAME thing....i can't remember the last time a remastered game got so much attention. It's not like they're adding new levels and a new ending.
It was a game that was very successful for Sony, last gen. In saying that i think Sony could have waited a year or two from now? Its done though and its coming out soon so we'll see if fans really wanted an improved version of this game, this quick?
The author isn't claiming by any means that TLOU is overhyped. Rather, they're claiming that the /Remastered/ is getting too much hype. Great game, nobody's taking that away. It's just odd that a remaster is getting all this hype and publicity as if this were a brand new game that we didn't see just about a year ago. For some, I'm sure it is a brand new game, but for many, I'm sure it's something they've already been through. Like I said, nobody's saying TLOU is a bad game at all. Well, except for some easily ignored trolls.
Good comment, i agree. halo 2 came out 2003-2004 long overdue for a remaster. Gears 1 was 2006 could do with a remaster even though some fans think its still too early yet, i disagree. Last of US is only a year old it might be better if it came out later.
Don't even bother guys, this site is just doing it for clicks http://n4g.com/news/1544100...
As reigning game of the year people can hype this up as much as they want. Why not? Afterall its a better version of the afformentioned. However having played only the game of the year version (some sarcasm implied) I dont see it as necessary to buy again a year later. I'll wait another year and capitalize on the impending flood of used TLOU remastered at a significant price reduction.
How has it received to much hype? Over half the article mentioning it are about how remasters are going to far.
It's the reason I bought a ps4. Borrowed my buddies ps3 to play this last year, and I can't wait to play it again.
