The Last of Us

I've been playing this for a couple of days now and I'm completely blown away by it. What an awesome game! Just what I needed to get over the dreadful experience with ME Andromeda.

It reminds me very much of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. which was released 10 years ago and also a bit of the original Far Cry.

The game really makes you believe that you are the player character and thus are part of the game. I consider myself a very critical gamer, but so far I haven't found anything to complain about.

I got a fever and the only prescription is more money!

Phenomenal game, it's really one that transcends the genre and the medium into something approach art.

I can't wait for the second installment.

Finished it yesterday. Was sad when it was over. A very good story and excellent gameplay.

The only curious thing about it is that the achievements are so hard to obtain. The majority of them has the 'ultra rare' rating. I can understand that. I mean, I'm a very thorough gamer. I search in every nook and cranny for stuff. But despite that I've completed none of the collections. The only part of the game where I didn't do a great deal of searching is where that sniper is taking aim at you and you have to make your way towards him. I went through the houses of the left side of the street, so perhaps the missing items were all in the houses on the right? Would be one heck of a coincidence, but that's the only part of the game where I knowingly disregarded some areas.

That's a cheat. I want to find them on my own.

All the more reason to start a new game.

It was a good game, yeah. Hopefully the 2nd will be at least half as good.

Played on PS3 originally then it came with my PS4 and beat it again.

Spoiler:
Made me cry the first time I ran through it when Joel got shot and I thought he died :'(

Spoiler:
That moment when Joel lies to Ellie at the very end, i'll never forget it. Such a powerful moment and note to end the game on.

And you can bet that's going to play a central part in the game's sequel.

I'm playing that now, but I'm stuck at a certain point with enemies coming from all directions.

That hasn't happened in the game itself. As always I favor stealthy tactics, but in this scenario I'm forced to take a more heads on approach. Don't really adapt well to it.

I've played Diablo 3, but it was too much button punching for my taste.

I'm generally not a fan of these types of games as they are very time consuming. But I actually finished this one, great experience.
