Not a single one? What about a portable to play your Pokemon games on.

That's a shame. :(

I have more Nintendo than Sony. All I have for Sony is a PS2, a broken PS2 and a PSP.

The Last of Us, koff~

Where to begin on how bad this game truly is. This game, while brilliantly constructed, is a poor game. It's less than thrilling story flopped with me (if you read any Science fiction you've come across this type of plot before). The aspect of crafting things as you go was fine and dandy, but poorly handled. For example: The shiv. Do you have any idea what a shiv is? A jury-rigged knife. That's it. Do you know what the most common weapon in the world is? You guessed it: The knife. Shivs break after one use (two if you find that upgrade) and you have to hunt for more sharp objects to build more shivs with.

Do you know what's stupid? Ellie's switchblade. Ellie has a switchblade that is older than she is, and it does not break at all. Never. Do you know how delicate a switchblade can be? Where are the kitchen knives? The butcher knives? I can guarantee you you that not everyone would have thought to bring the knife block with them to wherever they were going. There is no knife you can use in the game that doesn't break. I have knives in my kitchen that are supposed to last 50+ years or more if they're kept well. So this aspect of the game was downright intolerable.

The AI. I stood in a room with infected running around like coked up five year olds. They would look at Joel, and run out the exit to come back in the entrance. Imagine the door scenes from Scooby Doo. I know they could see me, and I know they could hear me because I was shooting at them. It was the worst AI I've seen in sometime. Also, I hid in a closet with a shotgun and murdered every guy that was in the area who was checking out that "Huh? What was that noise?". Pretty sad, really.

They call the magazines 'clips'. That just bugs the hell out of me. Out of all the time they were spending on this game, not one of them thought to see what a magazine is. You won't see Smith & Wesson send you any 'clips' when you buy a firearm. You can't buy 'clips' for handguns. You can buy stripper clips for certain rifles, but that's as close as it gets.

The gameplay was incredibly boring for me. The puzzles weren't puzzles, they were a waste of my time. Move this there, or push this out of the way. Move this ladder there, move it here, etc. I got so bored that I had to rush through the game in the next day or so because I knew if I stopped, I would never pick it up again to finish it. I played more Heavy Rain than I played of this game, and looking back, this game is clearly the 'cheaper' of the two.

This game was not worth what I paid by far. I bought the Ellie Edition and now I'm selling it to try and recover some of what I lost. I have never regretted paying so much for a special edition of a game before. I compared it to the New Vegas Special edition and it's just sad with what The Last of Us comes with. Stickers, the first issue of a comicbook so you have to pay for the other comics coming out to see the rest of the story, and an art book with less pages than the larger book you must buy separately. What a waste of my money I swear.

"Well this is the best game I've ever played!" If it is, then you have not yet earned the status of gamer in my eyes. I have played hundreds and hundreds of videogames and if there was one that I'd have to pick to play for eternity, this game would not even come close. I've played more hours of Tetris than the average person, and Tetris' simple gameplay and great music puts The Last of Us to shame. I know it's a poor example to use, but oh well.

I knew the ending of the story well before it showed up. The ideas were nice, but certain stealth aspects were minimal. For Tactical Espionage Action, you know where to find it.

Over all the hype of this game, all the opinions, and all the "This game is the best" I give this game a 3/10. It did not entertain me, it did not challenge me, it was not unique, it tasted bland and unfinished. Those three points are for the sound track, which is The Last of Us' one redeeming quality. Play a better game with better gameplay, rent this for a buck or two, or borrow it from a friend. It's really not worth the $60, koffi~

I'm so glad I do not know this game you are reviewing because that is one big block of text and you didn't provide a tl;dr version.

I'm not much of the zombie killing gamer. I'm more into JRPGs and MMORPGs. Bummer though, I heard The Last of Us was a good game. Then again, IGN is sometimes bad at reviewing games.

Never heard bad about The Last of Us. I guess everyone's taste isn't the same.

I always thought The Last of Us was pretty interesting, the only thing that kept me from playing it was the lack of a PS3.

I'm in to all kinds of games, koffi~

None of them are off the table (there are a few exceptions). There is just way too many good games out there for The Last of Us to do itself any good. For a game that's heralded as 'the best game this generation' it better be the best game on the market. It's not. It's a small game that takes less than 4 hours to complete. It is not the best game of this generation, koff~

I've seen The Last Of Us at a friends place, and i gotta agree with CoffeeDrink: its not that impressive.
I prefer Borderlands since thats a pretty long game if you have all the DLC or the GOTY edition.

I found The Last Of Us to be good. I feel that it's a game you play once, then you never touch for another few years type of game. I know there is multiple difficulty modes, but that's honestly not enough reason for me to replay it again.

I want a PS3 for Tales of Symphonia Chronicles. Even though I already have both games. ToS is my baby and while I don't have the money to be as big a fan as other people I know it's still there in my heart with Pokemon and PJO and such. ♥
