The fact that this is 75% the same story as the game but with some minor deviations, expanding upon side characters etc. and yet somehow still managed to be vastly superior in every regard to the game's original narrative just reinforced my opinion that The Last of Us (game) is a piece of shit and everybody who likes it is a fucking dullard who not only has shit taste in video games, but doesn't even understand what a well paced story looks like. It's pathetic how much becoming an almost-direct clone TV series made the entire experience better.

The Last of Us 1 is a very well paced game though.
>managed to be vastly superior in every regard to the game's original narrative
The game is significantly better than the show though.
The show has TV show production values while the game has silver screen-tier production values.

You say this like you believe Troy Baker can act.
His acting in TLOU is spotless.
Likely enhanced by Naughty Dog animators and editors. But it is what it is.
Pascal brings an entire aura to the character that Baker couldnt even dream off. Thats the difference between being a VO and being an ACTOR!
Hmmm no not really. In game Joel is a better portrayal than Pedro's Joel. Not by to much mind you. But Joel is Bakers one hit wonder role for a reason. It can't be beat
fuck you neil and fuck your gay ass shit show
>both games are a critical and commercial success
>The TV is the hottest show on TV right now
>Game sales are getting a second wind
Based Neil can't stop winning. Gankerpol in absolute shambles
>critical and commercial success
bahahahaha nice bait
>ackstually all those reviews and sales numbers are a lie, my fellow 4chanbros told me TLOU2 sold literally zero copies
aight, where's your sources then, let me see them
>Everyone is disagrees with me is 4chan help meeeeeeeee right now help help help meeeeeeeee 4chan BOOGIEMEN ARE AFTER MEEEEEE FROM ALL SIDES
>media for normies that gets shilled HARD by media (even my local normie polish media shilled the show for some fucking reason then stopped completely)
>its popular amongst normies because they're told they're supposed to like it
>Using Max Richter's On The Nature Of Daylight during that part in Ep3
That was a cheap shot.
Can they really fit the ending + new scenes with Ellie's mother in a 50min episode?
Probably a 90+ episode like the premiere
I agree, I thought that episode with the two gays fucking each other in the ass for an hour and forty minutes really elevated the story in a way that video games just can't achieve.
>but with some minor deviations
The only part similar to the game is dude taking immune girl out of QZ and that's it everything else isn't even remotely similar but that good because game's plot was fucking horrible and the show is quite a decent watch despite being horribly generic
>managed to be vastly superior
lol, lmao even
maybe if you are a fag and woke tard
I've found every change to be inferior to the game, for example Tess's death becoming needlessly and implausibly dramatic or making Sam a cute little deaf kid with Leukaemia so it hits harder when he dies
People only like this on rail shooter because it was le trend, it also starred goyagent Ellie so you HAD to like it
Wait until they adapted the Part II. We are heading towards a train wreck storyline here. They should have just adapted the first game and first game only.
heavy use art assets become stale when examined under a glass lense . even though they purposefully didn't write a good story , they sessioned minor details into the basic premise so it sells better . that will currently make a decent profit and because naughty dog knows how to adjust , they will continue to generalize fictional settings like fallout and wasteland . that will eventually detract from the premise of the theater of it all but they will get opportunities to create things like jak & face-off in due time .
Never cared for the game and I especially don't care for the show. They really just got whoever they could for Joel and Ellie without even trying to make them look like how they do in the game.
IRL ellie chuded out
>NOOOOOO they have to choose actors and actresses who look EXACTLY like the video game characters regardless of acting ability
Look at this and tell me they're the same character
Pascal's acting is good and charismatic. The character has clearly been softened by the writers but that's not his fault. Ramsay was an utterly baffling decision though. I almost feel like they deliberately found the least attractive actress in order to avoid creating a jailbait phenomenon
She's got the British phenotype, like I'm not even exaggerating, that's how the average teenage British girl looks. Can't really hold it against her, but it can take you out of it when you remind yourself she's portraying an American kid.
curious, all of them are blind to epstein island scandals.
So what you're saying is that you don't like the show because you're not sexually attracted to the girl who is supposed to be 14 years old?
You hire people for their acting skills, their looks are like 25% of it. Bella Ramsey is far better as Ellie than Ashley Johnson. Henry killing himself is like the prime example of what sets the two apart in terms of reaction.
>"Oh my God" said in the most passive, bored tone imaginable
>Abrupt shriek like she just got genuinely jump scared by someone behind the camera
>Wastes 2/9 episodes on homosexual love stories
>yet somehow still managed to be vastly superior in every regard to the game's original narrative
>skip entire game sections
>half of the episodes have no zombies
>re-wrote plenty of characters and plotlines
I'll stick with the much more entertaining RE games and movies, thanks.
God the RE movies are such great dogshit. The gunkata chris rooftop fight lives in my brain tent free
The biggest flaw of tlou was letting it become woke propaganda... ellie being lesbian in the dlc is the very first retcon
It's almost like the original devs didn't want to be making video games. Curious
Ok but why are they so ugly?
Why is the 16 year old girl balding like that?
WHY DO I HAVE TO WAIT A WEEK FOR A NEW EPISODE
I WANT IT ALL
I WANT IT NOW
Garbage show, boring gnomish waste of time cut out 95% of action and interesting dialogue get left with boring zogslop please keep your feet in the gas chamber when they close the door. Gtfo with your fake viewer numbers and paid reviews
