I don't care about his game so I guess it balances out
This. TLOU was a vastly overrated series anyway even before TLOU2 shit
first bost best bost
>I don't care
having a bunch of enablers who will cheer for you when you add trannies to your game will definitely make you not care if you're simple minded
kinda dumb that the chud they added to part 2 was also basically a fucking retard that gets their entire family killed
atleast not a mary sue
>atleast not a mary sue
It's Gary Stu, chud. And yes HE is.
THIS bro EATING BAIT
Does everything cost $14.88 there?
Yes but the gas is free
>implying he cares
Of course not, he had an agenda that California supported
considering how much people fawned over the gay stuff in the first season, any faults of an adaptation of TLOU2 is going to be completely moot because of "muh lgbbq representation"
Twitter doesn’t represent the entire population
but the people who make the decisions think they do. Or rather, they want to pander only to those.
SHUT UP SHUT UPPPP!!!!
I DON'T CARE
He’s a garden gnome, so of course he doesn’t care what you retarded goyim think
I don't care
nah the Ninja Theory guy is respectable because he truly gave no fucks and told fans to get bent
Druckmann truly thought he was going to illuminate the lives of luddites with TLoU2 and when that didn't happen THEN did he pretend he doesn't give a fuck
Pretty poorly too, by doing tons of interviews and rants on Twitter defending the dogshit decisions because of how little he cares.
>the Ninja Theory guy is respectable
i hate garden gnomemann as much as you do but that's no excuse to spout retarded shit like this
Is the first game worth playing?
Do you like movie games? Because it's literally THE movie game.
Funny how the movie game cope is all haters can come up with
moron it kickstarted the whole cinematic movie game meme. Why would you play some half way abomination when you can actually watch it in movie form?
This retard talks about cinematic games when adventure games and Metal Gear were around before his whore mother forgot to have an abortion
>being the first means it's what started the trend
have a nice day
Pretty sure that was uncharted
have a nice day. movie games don't exist. if it's a video game, you play it.
okay? Kingdom hearts 2 has more hours of cutscenes than The Last Of Us.
>ITS GENERIC OMG
right. not every game has to innovate, but what you call generic is very tightly made and enjoyable. Looking around for supplies, exploring, crafting and of course shooting/meleeing enemies.
There is no clear distinction of "movie game" its just whatever fits the trolls bill if it has "human-like western graphics"
>is that someone taking something negative in his life and trying to turn it into something positive and become a better person???!!
>NOOO, YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO LET IT DESTROY YOU MENTALLY
This is why the rest of the internet laughs at you pathetic Gankerers
Stop being a gay, anon. Nobody likes a gay.
God loves fags.
no I don't; I only like really feminine femboys and traps. That's not gay. Divine 7 confirms.
Leviticus 18:22 says otherwise my man
You're in these threads 24/7 defending this shit game. How are "Gankerers" more pathetic than your bitch ass?
It hit but bump limit. Marketard is probably off until the next attempt to shill the game and show comes along.
You don't need to apologize for getting angry at finding out your girlfriend/wife is cheating on you. Even if the relationship was shitty, instead of deciding to be mature and ending it, they decided to cheat. There is no need to have the moral highground and not express anger because they already decided to act morally bankrupt
Kingdom Hearts 2 is also like 30+ hours long compared to the last of us being 12 hours. I really like the last of us, but it's a movie game you dumb moron.
Incorrect, Kingdom Hearts 2 has trenchcoat Mickey, Goofy Christ, Donald Duck angrily saying "Sephiroth!", and Sora professing his love for Riku while Kairi sort of watches like an unhappy lamp. Kingdom Hearts 2 is kino.
I'm not hating on it. I even have my PS3 copy. It's well executed and looks pretty but doesn't change the fact it's a movie game.
>The gameplay is extremely generic
>Music is bland
>Art direction is boring
on top of the movie game
Yes, play the multiplayer too
It's a movie game, you're better off just watching the show.
You're better off just watching the cutscenes of the game rather than the show lol.
First one is great
Second part is disaster
Yes its actually pretty good on the higher difficulties. The writing is about as good as you can expect from a videogame, Joel and Ellie are genuinely likable characters in the first one. The combat gets quite a bit more interesting when you start fighting humans, the infected are just kind of boring to go up against in comparison.
>The combat gets quite a bit more interesting when you start fighting humans
it's literally smashing square, what are you talking about
yeah okay dude show me footage of you playing like that successfully on the two highest difficulties.
Only if you prove you are straight by showing me footage of you fucking your girlfriend.
the multiplayer is also fun
not really. lots of forced walking and talking and it's more sneaking around than shooting. the stealth is very shallow. lame traversal puzzles and bad crafting. maybe play it so you know what people are talking about it's popular after all.
i'll also add- bodyslam a shotgun goon. his gun vanishes. why? because we said so that's why. so so bad.
Have you played uncharted? It's the same shit but with zombies and less gunplay.
It's a mediocre game
yes but you HAVE to play it on grounded or else you're going to eternally bitch about it on Ganker for being "le movie game"
Grounded is unbalanced shit. It just makes everything instakill.
skill issue, grounded turns the game into a proper survival horror experience
No, it turns the game into boring stealth.
>waaahh the game's too hard it makes me actually use my brain and plan every encounter
filtered, I knew Ganker was full of shitters who play on easy mode
>use my brain and plan every encounter
You talk like this game had proper stealth like Metal Gear. It's literally just pressing L3 and walking behind concrete barriers. Just boring.
if you've been meaning to upgrade your gpu there's a promotion where you get the remake bundled with the newer amd cards, obviously to cash in on the show
>the newer amd cards
hey bro I'm just throwing out options here
Have you read The Road? If not, then the writing will seem groundbreaking and revolutionary to you. Have you played Uncharted? If not, then the gameplay will seem groundbreaking and revolutionary to you.
I'll go one step further, have you experienced literally any other piece of media ever? If not, then the writing and gameplay will seem groundbreaking.
Movie game memes aside, it's a solid 8 out of 10, especially on Grounded. The multiplayer was actually the best part. Haven't played 2 or the remake.
The Last of Us is an interactive HBO series with passable gameplay. It is every normies dream entry game.
Only if it's the original PS3/PS4 one. It's worth playing at least to check out why people hate it.
Its okay. Gameplay is mediocre and story was alright. Wasn't really my cup of tea but I wouldn't call it bad. Story and characters is treated as its claim to fame and part of the reason why TLOU2 gets shit on is because the story/character aspect of that was shit.
you're on a board full of eternally asshurt nintendofags. just play/pirate it on PC when it comes out in 2 months and make your own judgement
The show tells the story better, which is the only reason people care about the games.
If you just want to play a worse Residen Evil 4 with less content but don't want to shell out for remake its just right.
>Comparing The Last of Us to Resident Evil 4
How the fuck? They don't even play alike.
They're both 3rd person shooter escort mission sims which vaguely count as horror games with inventory management being 90% of your play time and goofy melee finishers when you stagger enemies.
Yeah but one has fun and responsive gameplay the other one is a shitty semi stealth game with shitty meele plus the aiming is aids
I did say it was much worse than Resi 4 tho
Your comparison is bad and you should feel bad.
dumbest fucking post i've read all month
Don't insult RE4 saying it's similar to this goyslop not even the remake looks as bad as TLOU
Ever played Uncharted? It's the same shit but with zombies.
yeah you don't really mow down people or zombies in TLOU as fast as Uncharted
Wait Uncharted is a movie game as well? I'm getting into western Sony games now, playing the greek God of War games and they are pretty good. I thought the movie shit didn't start until TLOU. And Heavy Rain if it counts because it's not the first David Cage game
1 starts 10/10 good. It falls to 8.5/10 inmediately after timeskip. Second one is 5/10 at best.
Yeah, it's not perfect, but I think it's a really solid experience with a decent balance of game and story.
I'd nitpick a bit about the pacing of some of the environmental puzzles, but it's much stronger than the second game in that regard which pads out everything it can.
Just played it for the first time recently. Its definitely worth playing but not because its great or anything. Its filled with all the usual movie game annoyances(movement speed is forced to a crawl so the characters can slowly walk down a hallway and talk, etc.) The gameplay is great when it clicks but its filled with little inconsistencies and annoyances. The enemy ai is dogshit and constantly flipflops from being able to see through walls to not noticing you when you walk right up and shoot them in the face. The story starts and ends great but meanders alot in between. Joel and ellie are passable, most other characters are generic. Play on hard, survivor is a good "hard" mode, grounded is ok but resources are so limited that you have to go full stealth for most encounters which is less fun imo.
I played the ps4 version on a ps5 btw. Not sure how much that improves performance but the game performed rock solid the whole time
part 1 on pc, but only when there are mods that make the faces of the girls more similar to the original game
just watch it on youtube anon. Its a shitty snoy movie game.
I'd say no, but it doesn't mean it doesn't have its strengths.
The gameplay is quite good for third person. It really shines with the animations, which are really some of the best there are, and the game's willingness to kill you. Even though there are ways to cheese through the game and take advantage of the AI, it never feels like that with how the characters move and interact. I'd imagine TLoU2 only improves on this.
The actual gameplay segments are unfortunately rather limited, which brings it down considerably. The story isn't great and has some particularly bad plot holes and oversights in my opinion, but some people like Joel and Ellie even though I just found the latter very annoying and the former nothing special. The show does the story much better, which makes sense, but the weaknesses show up there too. If you're playing it for the story, just watch the show instead or play Spec Ops: The Line which is rather shit and forced but at it's at least more cohesive and interesting.
You'll only be wanting to play it for the multiplayer, which works in the PS4 version or possibly RPCS3.
it's alright. the people that call it the best game ever, and the people that call it dogshit are equally retarded.
yeah, very solid, tho the multiplayer was the best part. joel and ellie are cool characters
Compared to all of the movie games on the market now, I would still say that TLOU1 is the best movie game. The gameplay gets pretty stale after about two hours like most movie games, but the characters are pretty good. If you decide to watch the show instead, just know that there were a lot of changes made to characters and story beats
After TLoU 2? Hell no. The first game might as well not even exist.
Honestly the only TLOU games that exist are the original for PS3 and the remaster (which I’m pretty sure is just a port) for PS4. Everything else the dlc, sequel, remakes don’t exist or matter
I don’t care
The Story is so much better told in the game than the show, that I honestly recommend watching a playthrough on youtube over watching the show.
Of course, mainly because they added or focused on a bunch of extraneous bullshit like Joel having panic attacks or Bill being gay. In the original Joel was just a dude broken by the loss of his daughter and left cold and detached because of it and Bill was never in any kind of romantic relationship with Frank, he was far to autistic for that kind of shit. Oh and play either the original for PS3 or the remaster for PS4 ignore the remake as well as the left behind dlc
It's extremely overhyped, it's a basic cookie cutter zombie "game" and honestly the only thing I liked was the idea of the virus starting from mutate cordyceps. Hell even the multiplayer is overhyped, it was fun but not the best thing ever like some people will try and tell you. At this point if you have any interest in it just save your money and watch the show.
yes but not the dlc
Based. Creators giving into fan demands is what killed Star Wars
Sounds like he's still not over it.
Didn't bump btw. Sorry!
>game sold millions and got a big Hollywood deal for an HBO television show
>garden gnomes put other garden gnome’s shitty works on display to further mindwash the population
Imagine my shock
>WAAAA I EARNED THIS RECOGNITION IT WASNT JUST HANDED TO ME
You will never be gnomish, apologist gay
So, are you working on TLOU3, or any game?
>I don't care how dogshit the story as long as I able to conviced and backstab my employee so I can get promotion to rule the company
2 definitely didn't make as much money as it could have because of his dogshit writing.
'These girls don't matter'
'I don't care'
>garden gnomes good
why is neil such a fucking hack writer?
>garden gnomes good
This is unironically true though.
>Waaaaah we lost but also y-y-you guys are worse!!!
Maybe try not being dogshit
what is this schizo rambling about
gnomish mental illness
Do actual garden gnomes even exist anymore? They're all either Euro, American or Arab mutts. It's like their whole 'race' and faith are just some kind of club for LARPers.
ok garden gnome. cool it before you get added to another list of countries youre not allowed to visit
Neil was literally raised in Israel with all its propaganda, anon.
Where's his grandpa from?
There's absolutely no fucking way he came up with the first game alone, specially when part 2 exist which if anything puts the former in evidence.
It's just a ripoff of Telltale's Walking Dead but with an ending stolen for something else whose name is slipping me right now. Anyways the story is super generic.
Telltale's TWD was just a rip off of The Road.
>There's absolutely no fucking way he came up with the first game alone
It's because he didn't. Bruce Straley was there to slap Neil on the wrist anytime he did some dumb shit. Funnily enough, Neil's original idea for the first game was going to be similar to the second game, except it was going to be Tess chasing down Joel. Bruce shot the shit down immediately saying that it was a terrible idea
The fact that Bruce Straley was removed from all credit only reaffirms the theory that Druckmann ran over and took advantage of everyone to get to the top of the corporate ladder.
Is bruce making any games now or did he retire?
>well Bruce was wrong about one thing
When Neil wanted to make TLOU into a miserable revenge story Bruce shot him down saying it was unrealistic for person to hold be angry for so long only driven by revenge. Boy did Neil show him by rewriting and retconning everything that made the first game good and turning it into miserable bullshit about ugly people doing terrible things for almost ten years now because he’s mad people don’t think Joel is a monster.
As in real life. fucking Christian people disgusting, how can they be so late?
You're confused and got it backwards, friend.
He's literally a garden gnome. The Scars are a parallel to palestinians btw
Is that why he hired a hardcore evangelical to play Ellie?
Why are bongs so ugly?
He hardly did any writing in the first game. The second he did most of it and you can compare the results. He's just a typical garden gnome living off other people's backs.
>do shit goyslop gayme
i wouldn't care either
>cares so little that he DMCA takedowns memes making fun of it so often that they get hashbanned on Ganker
You know that was the first time I've ever seen memes getting taken down like that. The butthurt was maximum.
Maybe he doesn't care about the hate but thought the memes were just shit.
This argument would have weight if most of the catalogue wasnt either twitter screencaps or wojacks.
i understand neil nothing wrong w/that! after all i didn't care to buy it!
Wasn't he bitching when it released?
The feelings mutual
He doesn't allow the use of the word fun and doesn't care that people hate his game.
He's pushing the right narrative so is getting rewarded. He wants to make movies but is so talentless he can't make it in that industry, so is stuck at the bottom making propaganda for trannies and sweatlords.
I genuinely cannot fathom what the fuck they were thinking with Abby.
Drucky loves fanservice.
But instead of tits and fun his games are selling gore, misery and outrage.
It's subversion: the character
A failed attempt to make you like somebody despite them literally destroying the only thing about TLOU that actually mattered.
As far as characterisation, Ellie is meaningless without the context of Joel. Half the reason the shitty revenge story is there is because Ellie literally can't have a reason to be a character otherwise. It seems "genius" but it's just retarded.
>according to Druckmann himself, Part Two is about his emotions and feelings after a group of Israeli soldiers were killed in the West Bank.
>in that sense, Abby represents the otrority, an external force alien to the characters and the audience itself that invades, destroys and humiliates the beloved.
>for this to work, however, there has to be a kind of affection and respect for that which was taken away
>the problem with this is that Cuckmann has no affection for that which is taken away
the result are self-evident.
>abby never explains to Ellie why she killed Joel
>I killed him because he stopped a lunatic from murdering an unconscious child for his hero fantasy of curing an uncurable fungal infection
Ellie is retarded, so maybe it would have worked?
Joel thought the fungal infection could be cured by what the Fireflies were doing. Narratively and in the literal text of the game, he was going to kill the Fireflies no matter what. He would not had lied to Ellie if he knew the infection were incurable.
Abby thought the fungal infection could be cured.
The doctor himself and all of the Fireflies earnestly thought it could be cured by what they were doing.
Any undermining of these facts and the actual story is fueled by game notes that both do not reflect the present beliefs or capabilities of the Fireflies to cure the infection and were purposely cut from Neil's TV adaptation. The undermining is also fueled by people believing an impossible (variant of a real) infection being treated in a seemingly impossible way is an in-universe contradiction and not just plot contrivance (that the TV adaption tries to mend) from a non scientist writer with a limited time to finish the story.
All of the character work and thematic edge of the story is that Joel chose his daughter over saving the world.
He's not a mustache twirling villain but Abby, or anybody who knows what the characters all know, have no reason to see him as anything but that.
>just writes a long winded paragraph saying the same “it’s not about the cure it’s about the moral” argument
It's about the cure but Neil made it work through the characters, narratice and themes instead of the science because he is not a scientist and had no time to consult scientists to explain how it would work
In the first game the fungus were based off of a type cordyceps, they themselves have said and guess what you can’t make a vaccine for that (or any other fungus for that matter). And if their intention wasn’t to make it obvious that the cure wouldn’t work why leave evidence out? Even if Joel didn’t know that, he still did right thing and besides that the whole thing with Ellie actually believing Joel is bullshit. For her to actually believe him she would have to go through zero character development and be the same naive girl we picked up in Boston. Everything after the first game including the dlc is just Neil rewriting and retconning characters and elements from the story because he’s bitter that he couldn’t make the first game a mega pozzed revenge story, which is what he did in the second game when Bruce wasn’t there to be his tard wrangler
In the adaptation of the first game, the show that just aired, the cordyceps bound itself with Ellie at birth (her mom was bit while the umbilical was still attached) and was inert of all properties except for communicating to other strains of cordyceps that enter her body that she's already infected, stopping them from reinfecting her.
The Fireflies hoped to extract that from Ellie, multiply it in a lab and pass this inert messenger cordyceps to other people.
>besides that the whole thing with Ellie actually believing Joel is bullshit
She believes the Fireflies were going to use her to cure the world
She definitely does not, deep down, believe Joel's lie
But that’s only specific to Ellie and if it was replicated that would mean that mothers would have to be infected until there would be enough people to just have kid with the fungus. Which probably wouldn’t work or be extremely inefficient because for every kid born a mother dies. Also we’re talking about the game where the fireflies explicitly say they’re making a vaccine which again wouldn’t work because Ellie’s thing was something she was born with they can’t just take it out if it was then Ellie biting people would make them like her. Finally TLOU2 made her believe Joel and thats one of the reasons she hates him in the game
>Despite being the two protagonists of the game, Ellie and Abby almost never TALK
They better go something about this in S2
You know what? Ellie and Abby never really have an actual conversation with one another, they just try to kill each other every time they see one another. Why wasn't there a conversation if the game was really trying hard to push the idea that the cycle of revenge is bad that everyone talks about? I think they could have really pushed that idea if they had some sort of situation where both of them actually had to talk to one another.
I think if Abby just shot Joel to make it quick, it would have made her easier to sympathise with. She got her revenge with a single decision she can’t take back.
Instead, like this says, she revels in it and kills him cruelly, brutally and sadistically. Dragging it out not caring that two of his loved ones are in the room. Abby comes across as a psychopath and no amount of flashbacks of playing with a dog can change that.
Abby really is written like a fucking sociopath who cannot understand empathy
>travels across the country for revenge for the death of her father, who she didn't even see die
>Kills Joel in front of Ellie, when it's clear she's a daughter to him, and leaves Tommy to wake up to discover his brothers head is now a caved in red paste
>Doesn't think letting them go will lead to any backlash, doesn't even warn her group to keep an eye out in case they are pursued
>Is in utter disbelief that Ellie/Tommy traveled across the country for revenge, the same fucking thing she did
The narrative of part 2 was just dogshit
I mean when you have a game that’s based solely on the retcons of a bitter narcissistic hack that’s kind of par for the course
>Is in utter disbelief that Ellie/Tommy traveled across the country for revenge, the same fucking thing she did
wait that's actually a really interesting thought, she was completely blown away someone did the exact same thing as her.
And she gave them more reason to want revenge than she had herself. Her father died, but she didn't see it, and she could tell it was a quick death. Meanwhile she fucking beats a man to death while forcing his daughter to watch, and is in disbelief that the daughter who is now traumatized wants revenge
I don't think Abby even knew Joel was Ellie's father.
Has some real "I'm not mad, I'm laughing actually" energy.
Remember this was at the same time they were issuing so many DMCA takedowns on memes that Ganker started autobanning them.
Didn't he say something to the effect that LOU2 was based on his experiences in Israel with regards to revenge etc?
How about all the gayry did that come from there too?
Gay storylines really add nothing to this world or story. Ellie could have been straight and been just as impactful and we won't even get into 2
He's got his his money so the grift will continue
he shouldn't care about manchildren crying about their favorite character getting killed off
He's obviously a fag but I wish more devs were like this.
>Um we don't like that woman! muhsoggyknees!
>fuck off we don't care
Anon the only reason he can say he doesn't care is because he is being backed by gays and feminists for being a good progressive boy, the garden gnome is playing easy mode with 0 talent
but i dont care either
>I don't care but I care enough to comment on the fact
I'm assuming this is from an interview, what could you say to not sound mad?
This makes you sound extremely mad
You just redirect by standing behind the studio and making it appear as if the fans are the ones at fault.
The only views of Druckman I give a shit about is what exactly does he believe an unconscious 14 year old girl can consent to, aside from being medically killed. It's a little disturbing he'd write a character who would seek vengeance on behalf of a doctor who was going to kill a young girl who had no idea what was happening so what else does this guy think is okay to do to unconscious girls?
is this the rare virtue signaling 4chin sperg? i thought most of your ilk frolicked in twitter
Well Dr. Uckman, what else do you think unconscious 14 year old girls can consent to?
its hilarious that you think your mental illness has any pull here, the way it does on twitter or discord. you must be a chud
Wait not him but are you saying trannies are somehow worse than pedophiles? What about pedophile trannies?
No good answers?
>anon finds himself in a TLOU2 thread
>surprised he encounters gayry
are you retarded?
But anon, he saved a zebra and a vaccine for a fucking fungus is totally real, he just had to kill the only immune girl for that totally not experimental process that of course wasn't tested before
Okay, let's plug that into the formula of what unconscious 14 year old girls are able to consent to and see how it changes things. I've got bad news, anon.
bro i was being sarcastic, i agree with you abby's dad was a retard and a piece of shit
I was just playing along, anon.
good for cuckmann. Last Of Us 2 was an embarassingly bad attempt at a 2deep4u kojimbo mindfuck game, legitimately way more juvenile and basic than YIIK, but I at least appreciate the effort.
Channeling that inner Tameem.
No one cares about that game anymore either
Is the game good? I thought the show was ass. It's baffling to me that people hyped it up so much.
It's basically the same shit but with some combat sections and less woke shit.
>Part 2 rides on Part 1's success
>Most of Part 1 came out of Bruce Straley's creative mind
>Bruce is out of the studio
>Actively claiming that you are the one that create Part 1
Don't forget the shitty "they travelled all country for revenge" shit was shut down back in 1 by straley and hennig for being retarded
>what is PR
>Link he posted prove nothing
keep crying indeed
>And a big #TheLastOfUs Happy Birthday to my buddy
@Neil_Druckmann, who penned the best story in video game history! It was fun man!
You know that you can just say that you didn't liked the direction he took in the second game right? you are not being forced to make up a bunch of fake shit to justify why it wasn't how you wanted
>Sony appointed Bruce to the project since its conception
>Neil joined 1 year after that
>Somehow, all the story was written by Neil
Is your brain smooth?
straley was crucial but it's no secret that druckmann wrote most of the first game
the dumb ideas that neil had during the first game were re-purposed for the dlc and the second game when straley was pushed out
>The guy that joined 1 year late wrote the story
You don't know anything about game making
>The guy that joined 1 year late
source? straley was always head of gameplay for sure but i can't find any info on neil joining a year later
How do you know about the parts you weren't there for
>the only good writer at naughty dog didnt touch the meme of us
you defend part 2 because you are retarded, i defend part 2 because its fanservice is better than its source material. we are not the same
garden gnomes look after their own anon, what do you expect?
your hopes are way to high for a shitty franchise like this.
for your optimism
Funny, he seemed to care a lot during the shitshow.
oooh yeah i`m a genius for stealing and changing the game
heh i don`t care
He cares lol
Of course he doesn't. Only reason he was working on the video game industry was because he didn't have his Hollywood breakout and now that he's in he can stop pretending.
Does this surprise anyone? The dude is a fag who probably likes the smell of his own shit. And his game is beyond successful getting him awards and a TV show and allowing him to plaster his name around like he's fucking Del Toro or James Cameron. He has no real reason to care about actual gamers actually LIKING his game anymore.
Fags who played the game were just a stepping stone for his higher ambitions and he got them hook, line, and sinker.
>He has no real reason to care about actual gamers such as myself
anon, people were either bitching because muh woke shit or because of the whole subverted expectations thing especially with Joel
the backlash tlou2 got had nothing to do with gameplay changes so stop pretending that the backlash was caused because of "real gamer reasons"
That's not the main point of the post that I intended.
I'm saying that whether the gameplay or story is what it is: He's got his use out of the fags who played the game and has thrown them away like a used condom.
It was just a means to an end, and he's got his Hollywood End.
He actually didn't need to do all that with his gnomish mafia ties.
For someone who claims he doesn't care, he is very vocal about how much he doesn't care.
Don't care for the game myself but I legit think Ellie is gorgeous.
there's not a single xbox game that achieves these kind of graphics. not even the upcoming ones, why are their studios so bad?
PC chad here, FH5 looks way better than this.
KEK an xbox fan, how does it feel to have chosen the wrong console?
fh5 contains more gameplay on its own than the entire ps5 library, sorry to hear about your ignorance ma'am
Nothing because I didn't choose console.
>spending your time defending video games on Ganker
>calling anyone a virgin
That post is very funny.
I want forcibly breed her, that will save the world, me filling her womb with my seed every day, making her body all deformed by giving birth every 9 months
because he knows that his game is a masterpiece, those who criticize him are idiots
very low quality bait
come the fuck on, son
the only bait is your birth. TLOU2 is a game of 10 (More from there it doesn't go down) and if you don't know how to watch it, then you really don't like it and you don't know anything about videogames
druckmann is unironically based for 2 reasons, he doesn't care and he fills his games with barefoot cuties.
Imagine getting mogged by less of two minutes of footage done by a fast food movie director.
nobody cares for his garbage, it evens out
doesn't that just mean he should've made a movie in the first place?
It's obvious that he doesn't care, his goal is just to make people angry. Subversive people are not trying to make others happy and satisfied, they want to destroy what these people like because it is "racist, sexist, xenophobic, transphobic and anti-Semitic".
Cuckmann knows that the majority audience of his game is bigot sandwich eaters and he despises them.
He will hope the normies won't care. I didn't watch it so I don't know if they made joel a villain so they will like him getting killed off.
TLOU2 is so good and none of you matter, none of your seething matters. The years of crying dont matter. All the memes dont matter.
The memes are good even if you like the game
memes are never good
then return to reddit
reddit has memes, also i have reddit tabs open.
no it doesnt
>TLOU2 is so good and none of you matter, none of your seething matters. The years of crying dont matter. All the memes dont matter.
Please, anon, tell me more...
that bro up there is seething
Hit games, hit show, tons of money and fame. Your seethe means nothing
>man that pretends to be anti chud has dedicated chud folder and things of trannies 24/7
Many such cases. You wish you were one
yeah this is what I don't get, why would they keep folders of this shit if they are not into trannies?
Is it true that 2 sort of like flopped?
but on what budget?

My moron in christ, you need to have SEX
i have it
its embarrassing to have sex?
>still defending himself pathetically on Ganker; replying instantly to any post
Holy shit you are the most embarrassing poster I've seen today; lmao
You are embarassed by sex and Ganker posts? Gankerx notifies me when seething nerds reply to my calm posting.
>i-im not mad, ur mad
You are clearly mad though, I'm clearly not mad. If i used greentext, meme image, and all caps, then it'd indicate I was mad.
You are so mad you cant even use words anymore.
>if I get the last reply in, that means I WON!
welp, this is no longer funny; now it's just cringe. You're an embarrassment to even this board of gay losers.
You are constantly embarrassed due to low self esteem.
NTA, but that's an oddly specific insult
Look at his pics, and how he constantly say embarrassed while using awful regurgitated memes. It's specific because it's blatant.
>he said, posting on Ganker for hours on end
As you post on Ganker for hours on end...
Low self esteem, self deprecation while constantly being embarassed.
>he said, posting on Ganker
Stuck on repeat due to being mad and unable to think properly.
>he said, posting angrily while seething on Ganker
Sorry I broke you anon
you lost, anon
More seethers, sorry your crying had no effect on the massively successful series. Nor an effect on me.
neil, is that you? don't you have some subversive garden gnome shit to do? or do you enjoy being metaphorically gang raped by anons?
Ah the delusional "X is that you?" post Very original. Also clearly shows your anger.
dude, why do you keep responding to these fags?
Cause they are replying to me. Thats why Im replying to you.
nothin better to do, huh? lol what a loser.
Self deprecation due to low self esteem, as you are doing what I am doing.
you still don't get it, do you gay?
I get it, but do you?
He's shitposting, and thinks the other guy isn't shitposting. Vice versa for the other anon.
Or, perhaps both know, and this is just how they derive entertainment. Maybe they're actually homies and just want to derail a Neil hate thread.
Sorry we broke your ass.
Sony lost between ten and fifteen million dollars.
Sold about the same as the PS4 remaster.
Sold considerably worse than the original and most at a heavily discounted price. They made their money back, there is no question. Probably did far worse than they were expecting though.
She's truly the Al Sharpton of feminism
naughty dog is only good at making multiplayer games
the best part of both games is Smashing Brandi's Cooch
He clearly does
garden gnomes are powerful yeah but they can tell people are getting tired of their shit
all you can do is talk anonymously on Ganker
Well, not exactly.
refined taste anon
all they can do is talk to their echo chamber about how much they hate people that dont want fuck of anything to do with their dumb shit
Doesn’t care so much that he retitles TLOU as Part 1 so people are forced to acknowledge it
Didn't he make the game to "antagonize gamers," therefore actually asking for the backlash?
How does he not care? He wanted it to be controversial. He was making sarcastic tweets about people who didn't like the game when it came out for weeks and now he expected us to believe he doesn't care? Fucking lmao.
>i don't care
Do people actually like the gameplay in these games that much?
Most of these playstation games feel like they have okay gameplay and then focus on everything else to sell it.
Like it's not unique, it's just bare minimum that they needed to sell the story.
The Last of us feels like a generic linear 3rd person shooter from that era but they focus on the post apocalypse story and visuals. I mean the gameplay is there and it's not bad but nothing to write home about as amazing or anything. I feel like ita all about the story and world that people like, not the game.
Sure, lol. This garden gnome was fuming so hard, he could lit up all holocaust ovens, if they were real.
the only thing he complained about was shit like the literal death threats he got
otherwise it was only you incels fuming to the point where reviewer sites like metacritic had to change their policies to no longer allow users to post reviews before people can actually play the games because you were flooding them so fucking hard with fake 0/10 "user reviews"
>Noooo you can't rate this garden gnome game as 0 out of 10
more like you can't lie about making a user review and make up all sorts of crap about your totally real experience with the game. Know why? Because that's literally called lying. But what do alt-rightfags care about that amirite, the end justifies the mean, even if you only want to see a specific end because you ate up so fucking much lies of other people who were also thinking like that
>If you rated it 0, then you are a nazi!!!11 You should be silenced!!
You are deranged.
>part 2 bombs
>i don't care
>no part 3
Honestly why would he care, he's getting praise from hollywood and critics and normies.
No, he got shit on left and right. The only people who praised him were gay video game "journalists". People getting praised for a Hollywood adaptation that he had nothing to do with is not him being praised.
>they didn't hire him to write or even as a consultant for the show
>just threw him a meaningless producer credit
He's seething, and thats why he can't stop telling people how much he doesn't care.
Oh yeah, he cares so little, he brings it up all the time.
Do you guys think the TV adaptation of part 2 will be better received than actual game?
Yes, just because normalfags will eat anything up.
Normalfags love every pozzed piece of shit. They love Stranger Things, they liked that Wednesday Addams show. They loved TloU show. Normies are just fucking gays that consoom. There is no question they will eat that shit up.
>consooming weebshit is somehow better
But nobody mentioned weebshit
I assumed that is what that anon is into, people who claim to hate normalfags tend to like weebshit.
Of course he doesn’t care. He’s getting rich pushing the agenda of the ruling class.
Wait what happened here?
Were they shelved because they weren't subversive enough?
Probably because Andor did extremely poorly for Star Wars standards
>Forspoken, a game no one played, can kill a game studio but Andor, a game no one watched, can't kill an extremely expensive Star Wars project
>needing an article to show that you dont care
>failed game doesn't get sequel
>creator pretends he doesn't care
this is new now
You know what? Good. It's gonna be funny as shit when a new wave of people hates the next season of the TV show.
>says he doesn't care
>season 2 of the show is going to majorly depart from the story told in TLoU2
Yeah, he cares SO little
i know, it reflects on his work
HBO seems to disagree as Mazin went out of his way to call Dreckman a genius 4 times (embarassing for Neil imo) before slipping in that they were changing and flipping most of the Part 2 plotline
I was actually defending this game (and I still think most people are raging about it for stupid reasons like murdering Joel) but it got onto my shitlist along with Druckmann when I found out that the whole game's "cycle of hatred" theme was admittedly an allegory on the israel-palestine conflict
apparently when Druckmann was still living in israel he saw it in the news when 2 israeli soldiers were lynched (few days after israelis killed 100 palestinians (among them 2 dozen children)) and remembers how much hatred he felt towards the palestinians but since then he regrets those feelings and took up a centrist stance. My man, the whole world outside of the USA knows that Israel is the bigger reason for the conflict, you can't fucking downplay this with an "everyone is equally bad, it can't be helped" stance
It really isn't that complicated. Neil simply committed the writer's sin of "do not make your audience say the 8 words". Rest is history cuz word of mouth.
>for stupid reasons like murdering Joel)
Joel's death is so retarded, out of character, and contrived that you have to have absolutely no standards to think it was okay
>he doesnt care
the feeling mutual
Answering "I don't care" in an interview is always a great sign.
I wouldn't even hear about the game if not for you and journos trying to keep it relevant
I felt like he came out with the idea for Joel's death and Abby being the unknown cause, and thrashed any semblance of sense just to push his primary goal.
It felt too contrived and thw message too on your face. Audiences know this and that's the reason for the hate, not because Joel dies but because of the non sensical reason behind it. Especially when it takes the whole game to tell the story.nk8vrk
It's worth reading or listening to the full interview. (He's did a few recently, not sure which one the article is talking about but he discusses this on the spoilercast.)
He basically says that he wants to make things that he and his team can be proud of.
He cares about reception to the extent that it influences the budget/trust/other resources for future projects, but otherwise accepts that he can't control how people will react and can't please everyone.
It honestly seems like a very reasonable position to me, and one that suggests a good degree of artistic integrity.
garden gnomes don't have artistic integrity; he doesn't have artistic integrity. He's a fucking propagandist garden gnome and as soon as the rule of law is dissolved he'll have his fucking face smashed in on the street.
I mean props to him for standing to his own work I guess
If only other devs had that fucking spine
As long as you're here, you're not anywhere else.
Neil's still a gay though.
Yeah me neither
At the end of the day TLOU was just a bland run of the mill zombie series
I doubt they'll even make a 3rd game which is for the best
do you think Part 2 contributed to El Page going trans
WHATS IT MEAN
SILENCE AND FRIENDS UNSEEEEEEEEEEEEN
Well it's a good thing the show was a 10/10
because I'm not watching the second season unless I hear "Oh thank god they fixed it"
He doesn't care huh? He will never work in this industry ever again.
I did not care for the last of us 2
Anyway, can some kind anon ignore the circlejerkers and give me a qrd of this whole debacle of The Last of Us? I never was that into it, so I only had word of mouth to go off.
Pissbabies mad that the fictional story didnt adhere to their headcannon. Also culture war justice warriors seething over lesbians and trannies
pissbaby seething over "pissbaby" now.
People who liked the 1st game mostly for the dynamic/story between Ellie and Joel got lied to per advertisement that it would be another adventure with them aka a sequel. They even fakes the trailer and added Joel into the position of some random chink. Then released the leaks and Joel supposedly killed in the 1st 30 min of the game by dr armstrong from metal gear. People pissed and cancel preorders, while Sony sends DMCAs to every person mentioning it. Game releases and streamers all hate it and most stop playing after Joel dies like the famous asian streamer who just cut up the disc. The whole game is also filled with lgbthdtv bullshit, a nasty sex scene, cocksucking of gnomish religion and chud shit to use as a shield for his dogshit writing Now we are here years later and the sequel game to a 30 mil 1st game only sold 10 mil with ps5 bundles and being given out for free in stores or ending up in landfills.
This shit even dropped the sale of God of war goyslop edition, and yes, i heard it in my mind.
>first game is well liked in most normalfag circles
>anticipated second game gets delayed because of corona chan
>turns out the director for the game is a walking gnomish stereotype who wants to be the next kojima and hates the word "fun"
>employees and beta testers are worked to the bone, forced to watch liveleak videos, one guy had to go the hospital due to exhaustion
>due to corona chan, they don't get their bonus (which is possibly why they put up with the horrible work environment) but the higher ups-including the garden gnome-receive it anyways
>a beta tester proceeds to leak several plot important cutscenes, along with a plot-outline that turned out to be 2/3s correct in order to get back at the studio
>cutscenes reveal that the MC of the first game gets offed by a very muscular girl in her early twenties wielding a fucking golf club after he lets his guard down like a retard. And later on, the game stops to a screeching halt at the climax in order for you to play as her, and she ends her story by beating the shit out of the girl from the first game.
>gradually more leaks happen, revealing all sorts of weird ass shit, like a heavily pregnant woman going out on the military frontlines, an uncensored sex scene, someone says, "bigot sandwiches" and a scene where you walk through a synagogue as the MC's gnomish girlfriend talks about the holocaust, and to top it all off, the game ends with the MC deciding not to kill the muscular girl after she travels across the country and loses two of her fingers, because revenge is le bad
>studio fucking loses it, starts DMCAing all of the memes people made making fun of the game, Ganker finally makes some OC that isn't a wojak or frog variant, good times are had by all except for the studio
That's basically it
>who wants to be the next kojima
kek. lmao even. cuckmann is basically worthless without his woke politics. I'm not even a kojimadrone but neil couldn't wipe his ass
Kojima has great ideas, he just needs a strong tard wrangler
and Kojima makes some actually FUN games in spite of the 5 hours long cutscenes. For all the shit I give to MGS V, I have to admit that it's the best stealth gameplay made to this day.
>Produce something for a public
>Do not care about said people
Again, i FUCKING wish i could not work and still get paid, this industry look like heaven.
>I don't care
>Went out of his way to DMCA memes featuring IPs he doesn't own or have rights to because they were mocking his shitty game
>Got super butthurt the game leaked and everyone was laughing at the spoilers because it was so fucking ridiculous
TOTALLY DOESN'T CARE GUYS. Just forget everything that happened in the lead up to and after the game's release.
>2 years later
>"lol I never gave a fuck lmao"
Kojima loves Neil and Tlou games
those two hacks should get a room in a love hotel to motion cap their progressive anal rape scenes.
Funny how you suddenly bring up homosexuality in words and image at the mere mention of 2 males. This is the definition of projection (due to your closet homosexuality).
the constant assertion that these pastiches from pop movies and literature are identical to art and there is no meaningful difference between them makes for the most exquisite form of irony when their differences are juxtaposed so vividly. the contrast is almost divine - the last of us is man's hubris, neil's desire to capture the beauty of nature and life in art and make it his own, his cerebral and conscious understanding of what it means to be what he thinks art is, his intentional "making", while art is human reflection, effortless being, no explanations or mass promotion or reassurance from critics, just an "is" that needs nothing added to it in order to be complete. neil tries so hard and yet, the harder he tries to "make", the further he takes it away from the effortless "is" that is the thing he wants it to be. it's comedy on a cosmic scale, a joke only god himself could come up with
God damn, you said nothing.
just like tlou2
How is it that video games are the only medium where you are straight up not allowed to criticize anything?
Imagine if someone made a movie and it got heavily criticized and then the director goes and says "i don't care"
he would be called a fucking child who can't take criticism
Tons of direction, if not the vast majority, don’t care what racist incels on a pedo forum think. I mean that’s just common sense.
no one cares what an esl says either.
Your inability to understand typos and autocorrect in the year 2023 is more indicative of your language skills or lack there of.
>Racist incels? pedo board?
Do you disagree with any of those descriptions?
I disagree with the don't care part, or tourists wouldn't be here seething all the time.
But the ones against tlou 2 who constantly spout political shit are the tourists seething.
In ye olden days of yore a game that makes manhunt look like baby’s first murder simulator would be praised. Nowadays with political tourists abound, you have seething crying butthurt over… everything. Even the murder parts.
In the olden days the first game was shat on too, why would the sequel be any better? cause they have an improved gore system? yawn.
It being shat on is a highly debated point over the years. It for sure didn’t receive 1/100th the butthurt of 2
When the shit about game first leaked nearly everyone knew it was going to be shit the only people that defended it were redditor and game journalists
the millions upon millions upon millions that live it, with many millions more now with the show, disagree. Plus the multi is super fun. Genuinely only bad part of 2.
Yes and there are also millions that think the earth is flat, men can be women, and that communism can actually work. And using the show as an example is worthless normies will eat up anything and call it good all your showing is that you base the quality of something on popular opinion, which is the most midwit argument you can use
I didn’t base the quality on that, I disagreed with the claim that everyone hated it. I base the quality in its fun gameplay and innovations of the time.
Its just another version of Uncharted
Fun gameplay and innovations? It’s a bog standard TPS there’s nothing innovative about it aside from graphical shit, not to mention it’s a fucking zombie game. The only real draw to the TLOU series even when the first game came out was story which wasn’t new either since girl and surrogate father surviving in a zombie apocalypse had already been done by Telltale a year before. Except Telltale handled the death of the surrogate father and the girl becoming the protagonist much better and didn’t feel the need to stick in needless progressive pandering
Political tourist must always cry about politics. It’s their nature.
politics is the driving force behind the entire game, the game was made to intentionally offend the fans of the prequel.
I can’t imagine what it’s like to be this fragile.
its the truth, the director himself said so
>ignores the entire comment and focuses on one part at the end
If you can’t give a decent arguments maybe you should go.back. to .reddit and cry about how those chuds on “the racist pedo board” didn’t agree with your heckin good opinions
Why do you tourists constantly resort to website tribalism? Do you really think you’re in the Ganker club?
part of the freedom of this site is you don't have to write a post like you're filling out madlibs
So I made a madlib when I said you’re a bunch of crybaby political gays that have been conditioned to shit your pants about anything and everything at a moments notice?
Its more about your word choice and the fact that you clearly were not here when this game released. Its obvious your posts are heavily influenced by screen caps.
I was here but I didn’t go to threads cause I didn’t play and it didn’t want to spoil it and I managed to go 7 years without a single aspect being spoiled before I played it. So I can’t say for certainty, all I said was it’s hotly debated because I’ve seen people say both in sooo many tlou2 threads. But it’s clear the reaction to 2 was WAAaaaaaAAAY worse because it was spoiled before release with literally thousands of threads of people going apeshit.
You missed out on experiencing genuine oc as it was happening because you didn't want to see spoilers for a generic 3rd person shooter?
I don’t care about your shit memes.
Now you're just lying like todd
Imagine caring about endlessly regurgitated portly made cartoons and phrases set on repeat millions of times like some kind of chink roach.
It’s not a meme, that’s how I know you’re redditard by the fact you’re arguing against TLOU being a generic third person zombie
What game does it play like? Name it. One anon said uncharted but it clearly doesn’t play like uncharted.
Honestly, the Tomb Raider reboot
so you admit to not being in the threads when the game came out then
Was it the part where I said exactly that that tipped you off?
I’m aware theres no “club” retard, I’ve never been under the deluded notion that this site was some edgy secret corner of the internet where cool kids hang it’s just autists arguing about shit. But I’d rather have someone call me a gay or a moron than deal with a bunch of pretentious pseudo intellectuals write entire paragraphs about how a lazy revenge story is their generations hamlet.
Ok well that did t happen here, instead it’s people writing paragraphs about politics while they shake with rage about a fictitious story.
>shake with rage
I’ve never been this mad over something on the internet or in general because I’m able to control my emotions. I don’t know why you would think that unless you think that kind of behavior is normal for some reason? But why would you think that
Due to the years of seething on such a large scale.
Yes I’m sure you have, but it not healthy anon you should find better coping mechanisms. Like breathing or meditation
Anon please, the amount of rage this game generated is palpable. Your attempt at reversal based on nothing falls flat. Years and years thousands of threads, death threats for miles “I’m gonna kill that garden gnome garden gnome reeeee” and the sheer amount of time spent on the thousands upon thousands of memes created is quite the bit of evidence to back up my hyperbolic insults.
Anon you are part of that rage, you are the other side of the coin. Where one side screams “kill garden gnomeman” you scream “die fuck you retarde nazi pedo incel” you are just as in it as they are. I don’t hate TLOU2 or Druckman for religious reasons. I hate them because they’re lazy, disingenuous, and miserable
I didn’t tell anyone to die. So why cry, I’ll tell you why, conditioning.
Anon what are you talking about there is no conditioning. You got called out and your upset I get that, but making vague statements about “conditioning isn’t going to help
Absolutely conditioning. Why do you think people instinctively repeat the same phrases? You think you thought of it all on your own?
Anon I don’t let people tell me what to think or how to feel. All of my opinions are based off of observation and thought. And you know that you’re only using “conditioning” as an excuse to discredit my opinion without actually providing a valid argument against it.
You said I am part of the rage by telling incels to die, but I never did that, so what observation did you think you saw?
>don’t care what racist incels on a pedo forum think
Did you type this? Because if you did this is the exact thing I’m talking about. And I never said you said “die” I was giving an example of the kind of things your side of the argument says, and yes you guys do say that you use words like incel, pedo, and racist to discredit peoples opinions again without actually providing an argument
But if they are racist and they are involuntarily celibate is it an insult or just an observation? Like if a guy is from Asia is it wrong to call them Asian?
In your analogy you would have to know that the person is actually Asian, Which in this case you don’t. And you didn’t say it about an individual you said it about Ganker as a whole which is a broad generalization and frankly unfair I mean you use this board do you not? Are you a racist pedophilic incel? I’m sure your not same goes for the majority of the people who browse Ganker and you know that. But again your using a blanked statement such as this “don’t care what racist incels on a pedo forum think“ to attack the moral character of people that you disagree with without providing a valid argument or really thinking of the implications that statement gives. Which is frankly and unhanded and ignorant thing to do
I mean… anon. Have you been in this thread? On Ganker? garden gnomes morons trannies etc. like do you think it’s non racists and people in healthy relationships? Comon now. Obv I’m not doing a 100% thing but when argument after argument is filled with racist shit it’s fair to say the Anon speaking Asianese is Asian.
And ya know, what’s there even to argue about. You or another anon in the chain said druck is lazy. How do I argue? I think the guy that helped take part is making a well made high quality highly rated game for a billion dollar company probably isn’t a lazy person. So ya know that’s my counter argument to the substance of your argument.
Anon you’re making assumptions again. Do you really think everyone on this site is being serious with what they say? Most likely not, I mean there are genuine racists on this site, but just saying moron isn’t an indication. I mean troll/bait threads exist and they’re constant, not to mention most of the edgy humor we know of today came from this site or sites like it. Another good example is that the term for artist and new user both on Ganker use the word fag (drawfag and newfag) and neither are not solely used in a negative connotation. And in regards to Neil well if you make a revenge story that ends with the main character giving up everything she has to achieve her goal and then realize as she is drowning her target that revenge is bad and just goes home. Yes I would call that lazy
That’s just your lazy interpretation. Revenge bad is just a meme you’re repeating. Was the story of Rambo “revenge bad” when he spares the bad guy in both part 1 and 2? No.
>just a meme
>confirmed by the writers post release
>Ellie didn't kill Abby arbitrarily because they couldn't really decide who the cycle should end with
Oh shit you said it in green text. I totally changed all my views.
Don’t be patronizing anon it’s beneath
Of course that'd be the best response you have. Dumb game for the intellectually bankrupt.
I’ve never seen Rambo 2, but in the first movie Rambo doesn’t go on a killing spree slaughtering anyone who gets in his way. He kills one person by accident and he spares the rest is because Trautman is there to stop him. Where as Ellie murders dozens of people, stops hunting Abby, starts a comfortable life with Dina and her son, and then gave it all up to kill Abby and then all of a sudden has a change of heart and decides not to. And the game ends with her going back to an empty house all alone. Whereas Abby who is an actual psycho gets to start a new life with Lev
>inb4 but she lost all of her friends
Real friends wouldn’t let someone obsess over revenge for a decade, and help them move on
Soldier goes to war, has chance of a normal life at home, goes back anyways, decides to spare someone. Happens in real life, happens in Rambo 2, happens in tlou2.
The difference there is Rambo doesn’t actually have a chance he was molded into a killer by the U.S. and Trautman all he knows is war. Not to mention the original story of Rambo is about a Vietnam vet struggling with reintegrating into civilian life as well as suffering with PTSD it’s not a revenge story. Where Ellie after getting everything and actually getting that normal life just gives up everything for no reason and goes to kill Abby and again gives it up for what reason? If you want a good revenge is bad story play AC2
Ellie was going to be a soldier since birth and was training to be one. Also there’s a bla t in your face scene showing her ptsd right before she goes back in the shit.
Training to be a soldier and actually living as one are two different things and Ellie’s PTSD is from what she experienced and is only present at that moment Rambo’s is both from what he saw and did plus he didn’t ask for what happened to him and while Ellie didn’t either she went right back into it purely out of revenge. Where Rambo went back in order to save POWs there is barely any similarity between these characters outside of revenge
I’m against it because it’s lazy and built on shitty retcons and rewrites. But I will say making Ellie a lesbian makes no sense and was only put in for progressive brownie points and that modern writers can’t write gay characters without them being an over the top caricature or stereotype
You see, in theory, that's what the true artist should be. But in practice he basically just copied the most popular trends, appealing to every possible group imagined BUT ordinary people. He is a crowd-pleaser and a cuck and social media point gatherer. I hope he dies. I said my piece.
Uh huh, sure.
This guy is the most pretentious dev I have ever seen. So tired of hearing about him and the last of us. I don't even hate TLOU 2. It's just some dudes wank material. What I cannot stand is the fucking circle jerk twitter and reddit has made saying that this is the greatest thing to happen to gaming. That this game is the bridge between mainstream media and video games. Putting the game on this high of pedestal despite being nothing really special, especially if you played a ton of games is just whats frustrating about it. There are so many games out there with far more thought provoking and emotional areas but because TLOU is just a another 3rd person shooter with the easiest story element to get people to have their heart strings stretched (Parental and Child figure conflicts in an apocalyptic or survival situation.) it gets all the attention.
Just the fact this guy so clearly sniffs his own farts in interviews and on twitter is just funny. Take out the last of us, and I can't imagine any average joe would look at the stuff this guys says in interviews or twitter and I think people would probably say this guy is full of himself.
A random Koei/Team Ninja game has more artistic value than this shit.
Of course not. He's too good for caring
Sold only half as much as the original but ok. May the next one sell half as much again.
that's what true art is. Not giving out slop to the goys but trying to push the medium forward. TLOU2 is anti-goyslop but everyone would rather see the highschool kids kill God again.
>starts complaining about jap games out of nowhere
>TLOU2 is anti-goyslop
the game literally stops itself to give you a lecture about how great garden gnomes are. You literally cannot complete the game without paying your respects in a shoah dome
>ummm sweeety that's actually not what goyslop means
>I don't care.
For a guy who "didn't care" I pretty clearly remember him popping off quite a bit on twitter.
>turns the megaphone on
>clink clink clink*
>"I DON'T CARE GUYS, I JUST WANTED TO TELL YOU THAT!"
what did he mean by this?
to be fair he doesn't have much reason to care. Last of Us Part 3 could literally be him goatseing you the entire time and people would still call it "brave" and "inspired".
if he didn't care he wouldn't be so vocal about not caring to the point he's speaking to game journos about his tv adaptation of his movie game anon. i hear he even changed the adaptation from the original so that when the next season comes out people won't be pissed cause he's already trying to make you hate the character lol
gay cares a whole bunch evidently
hello, I hate the garden gnomes
>but to lay into Druckmann in this manner is uncalled for
The golem naturally protects its master; despite having absolutely no insight into the situation compared to people who were actually in the writer's room.
Druckman's an egomaniac but Amy had to have been to. She didn't get fired she probably just walked away when she didn't get her way.
Put a 357 into your head Niel
According to Richard McGonagle (Sully's voice actor), she didn't have a choice and was fired.
He also said it was because of "internal machinations" going on inside of Naughty Dog at the time.
He also said that there were serious discussions amongst the Uncharted cast about leaving the project in response, but they were contractually obligated.
>garden gnome enters the equation
>discord and disharmony immediately spread
>everything falls apart ending with garden gnome somehow in charge
Many.... many such cases.
>All of a sudden the focus test scores improved dramatically
Literally "You just think you're having fun", proven by the cuckmann himself.
I like how he admits that playtesters weren't having fun playing the game.
So then he manipulated the test with a bunch of leading questions to get the results he wanted and then pretends like "fun" doesn't exist.
>That's a reference to the criticism that Nathan Drake doesn't respond emotionally to all the killing he does
He really took all that shitposting to heart.
Everyday I pray to GOD that somone leaks TLOU3 like 2 leaked. It would be the most poetic shit ever.
ND has a huge leak problem so I guarantee it will be. I'm surprised factions 2 hasn't leaked yet since focus tests have been playtesting it for at least half a year now.
there's nothing worth leaking
TLOU remake leaked and that wasn't exactly exciting. It will leak eventually, calling it now.
What I really talked about what a MASSIVE leak that 2 had, with all the plot twists spoiled with videos and shit. This absolutely RUINED the game for a lot of people and it was glorious.
I'm convinced it costed a lot in terms of sale even if this piece of shit still sold like hot cakes.
oh yea I'm sure that will happen too if they don't fix their Amazon web server issues. Seems to always pop up and someone gets a hold of the capture website all the devs use.
You're either Canadian or North Midwestern
you know i would really like to see the last of the last of us
i've had enough
Imagine if we got the first version of TLoU
Actually sounds kind of kino, I bet you could write all sorts of nutty shit for that since women are such a commodity that they'd be either treated like royalty or like currency, or even straight up reviled because they pose a real threat should they become infected. Plus with half the population immune there'd be a real chance of overcoming the problem so there'd be a lot of different communities trying to handle the problem differently.
No; that misogynistic, stop thinking about anything that may upset a protected class.
I mean if you wanted to go that route it'd even be a good opportunity to insert a bunch of women slaying.
>community led by a council of women basically worshipped as gods
>womyn characters in tank tops who still go out and do stuff and have to fight harder than wh*te m*n so they don't get enslaved or infected but don't get any recognition because it''s just like real life
>cuckman gets come out and say the whole game is an allegory for sexual assault or the wage gap or something
you could only get away with it as long as the twitter mob favored you; as soon as they decide to turn on you (as all good mobs do) they'll roll back to all the crimes you previously committed throughout your entire life and that story would be considered sexist ex post facto. Like how JK Rowling used to be an ultra leftist but is now Emperor Hitler of the Fifth Reich.
The left doesn't even hate JK Rowling, actually JK Rowling represents a schism in the left because she's forcing people to decide whether they want to virtue signal for trannies or for women. It's pretty funny.
yeah but the point is everyone was fine with her stories before but now they go back and are like "These goblins are garden gnomes, she's anti-semetic" and other bullshit.
Goblins are clearly garden gnomes tho
sir, please consider the feelings of gobbos before you post slander like that.
We had Y: The Last Man (the okay comic, not the dogshit show), and no man complained. It genuinely seems like women want a seat at the table, but can't stomach the food.
Oh, women and Neil, of course.
That’s not even the children of men plot and I bet it’s fake text
Isn’t that basically just Lisa: The Painful/Joyful
Talk about rent free
i really hope HBO kick this gay out of the room, haven't they noticed naughty dog has been making literally nothing but remakes and ports recently? its because they are not capable of making anything new anymore, this studio is finished riding on past glory, all the dev carrying the company has left
