PS4News: "To answer the original question: because it’s set to be epic. Get ready for an amazing adventure."
Though we're clueless on what the story is the reason why people are hype is simply because of the track record of the individuals who are making it.
The two games yes.. Eh Shadow of the C was good imo. Ico..not so much. As a 'artpiece' these games area great tho. Te last guardian, gameplay wise looks the worst yet imo.
It released around Halo, MGS2 and GTA3 and still received critical acclaim. Quite a feat no matter what you think of it personally.
"Art pieces" are nearly impossible to showcase at trade shows that run on capitalism & commerce. Art is infinitely more valuable than entertainment though. Fun games are a dime a dozen, but truly affecting games are as rare as they come. I can count on one hand the amount of games that truly shook me through the course of last gen, if The Last Guardian has the potential to rest on that list with titles like SotC then it's in an entirely different league from everything else. In order for gaming to be considered a legitimate and worthwhile medium going forward, they need more games like TLG and less games like CoD, otherwise gaming will just be a flash in the pan that'll give way to the next interesting "leisure" activity. Gaming has every bit of the potential that film & music has, but without games like Shadow and the other "art pieces" it's just another way to waste a few hours. I expect more out of this medium, and I think gamers deserve more, we just need to have the right attitude towards receiving them.
This game is going to be reviewed under such scrutiny.
Maybe....but I bet it delivers and critics will be blown away. I have a feeling this game will be something special.
To be blunt... it's a review. If the author isn't scrutinizing why bother?
I mean more so than most reviews, obviously.
If you played SOTC and Ico you will know what the fuss is adout.
You've played the game then I take it. Can you post some gameplay footage to show boring it is.
Only way to answer that is to play the previous 2 games. And it's more about having experience than is anything else, it's made with the human element in mind and as the key component to what makes them good. I can go on ,but simply put, just play the previous 2
Fans of lco and Shadow of the Colossus know what the fuss is about.
Fumito Ueda's pedigree should make this evidently clear. Ico --> Yorda Wander --> Agro Boy --> Trico In this one, boy and Trico are more reliant on each other than in any characters in previous games. The Last Guardian from what has been seen, culminates some of the best aspects of both Ico and Shadow, and is taking on everything learned about how two characters can grow together over the course of a game's duration. There's going to be lots of emotional moments and if you own a dog or a cat then you might just appreciate Trico's AI routines, animation and reactions even more than anyone else. He looks so convincingly alive and the animations are so natural. Agro was a great companion. Trico takes this a step further. I thought it's also worth noting that as the article mentions, Trico is a young pup and even so is hunted by the mysterious enemies in the game. He has been caged and had spears thrown into him. This is going to be a sad game, punctuated only by the joyful interaction between the boy and his companion.
