Eh if anyone might make this not be lame it's Naughty Dog.

On the other hand: you think a name and personality's gonna keep me from slaughtering everyone? It didn't save Tsunderplane and it's not going to save you. :evil:

The whole game's story was leaked. We already know that it's pointlessly edgy and lame, unfortunately.

my argument is moot out of the gate as I haven't played TloU so I'm not familiar with how it handles its themes
but like, WHAT IF YOU ARE THE MONSTER??? is such a dull fn premise

Spec Ops: The Line did it in back in 2012 but in the mold of a bog standard, grey-brown cover shooter, so it had an interesting satirical edge to it

then you have Nier: AutomatA (which I have admittedly been fawning over), and that covers heavy themes, the nature of humanity and existential questions and invites the player to interrogate it and literally play around with its basic building blocks

meanwhile this has a devteam of hundreds of people and a budget of hundred+ mill prolly and... you spend all that on making sure that you feel extra bad about killing the dog :-I
and like... what's the point? "Oh, the world sucks and humanity can be vicious and brutal"

Yeah... that... sure is insightful commentary

I just want Naughty Dog to make a kart racer out of the series like they've done with other titles of theirs, mainly because it could be called The Fast of Us.

You have to live with the results of your actions (that are mandatory by developer choice, in this linear, character-driven narrative)

it is a real shame that you went and killed the person you had to kill as part of gameplay we created and it says a lot about you

I appreciate TLOU 1 from a narrative standpoint because it subverts the whole "found family" and "broken man becomes a good dad" series of tropes that get really played to death, with the events that would normally spur your generic, gruff protagonist to become a better person instead turning him into a monster.

It's still unnecessarily dark and gritty and the gameplay is just kinda there, despite all the polish, and continuing that story after that very stark ending in the first game is a bad idea regardless of where it goes.

the best way i can describe my feelings toward tlou is "tired"

like whenever i see screenshots or footage of either game i get this feeling of apathy and exaustion

and i just can't bring myself to care for how it subverts the sad dad trope when it's all wrapped in the most generic aaa cinematic shooter look

like, i think realistic graphics and realism have a place in video games, but games like TLOU or other aaa titles have poisoned the well and turned the whole discussion on realistic graphics and realism to mean overproduced hyperealism and bearded men killing people
