As someone who platinumed TLoU, my opinion is that it's one of the best games ever made and only stumbles during the Pittsburgh area that goes on a bit too long. Otherwise, it's pretty much perfect. 

My main complaint is that the ending doesn't fit with the rest of the game.  90% of the game is great though

Played the first part of Hidden Agenda and it's pretty good so far. I'm just playing solo since that's how I played Until Dawn, which requires the free HA Playlink app on your phone to play it. The app lets you control the on-screen cursor to choose dialog options or find hidden evidence from crime scenes with it along with tracking story info for each of the characters or story beats if you need to see that. There are no direct control elements like in Until Dawn, so it's mainly just story and dialog choices in HA with only one action moment so far that could be this game's version of a QTE. If you're playing with friends, there's a competitive mode that adds some competitive elements to the game that lets you take control on certain decisions or have hidden ulterior motives for how you want things to play out for some added replay value that seems like a neat party game mode.

Interested in hearing your thoughts when you finish it with playing it solo.

If anyone is even thinking about Swords Coast Legends because it looks like Dragon Age: Origins (the first one): STAY AWAY FROM THIS GARBAGE GAME. 

 

I tried it. Awful.

I thought it was more like a Diablo 3 type game.

No. It was pitched pre release as the spiritual successor of DA:O. The team that made Sword Coast Legends did work on DA:O when it first came out. 

 

That same company went bankrupt after releasing Sword Coast Legends. It showed a lot of promise, but execution was very poor. Would do anything for another DA:O. That game was incredible.

I have only made it to maybe the halfway point during my two attempts at playing TLOU before losing interest but the prologue was far, far more interesting than anything else I did play. This is one of those games I just don't really "get" despite nearly everyone else loving it.

I played it at launch on PS3.  I got through it but didn't love it.  Couldn't wait for it to end actually.  Traded it immediately after finishing it.  Picked up a $15 code for PS4.  Enjoyed it a lot more the 2nd time through.  One of a few games I didn't get the first time but ended up really liking after giving it a second try much later.

I got it at launch on PS3 since it was from Naughty Dog and I really enjoyed the Uncharted games. Ended up not liking the characters, finding the gameplay boring and only getting a few hours into the game before moving on. Decided to try again when the PS4 version was $8 and I did like the game more and got quite a bit farther than I did the first time but I still lost interest before finishing. Maybe I'll give it a third shot before the sequel arrives.

I can absolutely understand not liking The Last of Us. 

Its status being constantly heralded as "the defining game of its generation" is, IMO, utterly ridiculous. The Uncharted games have definitely gone through an unflattering reevaluation in recent years, and I think it's time for TLoU hype to get the same reality dose. 

Still a game that I enjoyed a lot, mind you. And obviously an exciting prologue (I feel like half of what I read about it is people who just played the prologue ...).

I always felt ahead of the curve on that one, thought UC2 was kinda average and then I found UC3 to be outright terrible and is one of the few games in my entire life I regret buying brand new. I mean yes they are cool to watch but the core gameplay just killed me, boring climbing combined with bland enemy design with loads of battle arenas where they send like 4-5 waves of said bland enemies at you.

 

Haven't gotten to Last of Us yet (in the backlog though thanks to one of those gamestop 4 for 10 deals) but oddly enough I actually look forward to it because I've always read that it's the opposite of Uncharted, less enemies and the encounters are more interesting.

That's silly to assume most people have only played the prologue.  I've platinumed it on both PS3 and PS4, probably 5 playthroughs total.   I've put countless hours into MP - more than Socom or Counterstrike, my two previous 'most time played' games.

 

It's phenomenal.  Everything about it.  People here know I don't give two ducks about the story of a game, yet TLOU managed to pull me in and make me care about them [that -never- happens].   Combat is fantastic - early on, the lack of skill with weapons makes headshots hard, which makes every bullet in that revolver count.   As you upgrade, you get better, and eventually you're taking down enemies much easier.   They also perfected in game crafting for an action game.

 

The only two big 'flaws' [and they're minor] is, as someone else said, some midgame pacing before things really kick into gear, and a few too many 'move the box' puzzles.   The first is easily excusable due to how masterfully the rest of the story played out, and the second is just the hit you take in a new franchise -- there is only so much time to code, and so sometimes you'll see them have to reuse a puzzle mechanic since it was already developed rather than add in unique mechanics every time. 
 

Maybe it's age related... I can't stand the high school drek of, say, Persona 4 [despite loving drpgs and the SMT press turn system], and literally cringe as I speed through dialog.   On the other hand, I've got kids... and completely identify with Joel and love every character arc.  As I just mentioned, the ending is pitch perfect.  It's the only possible ending.  It's exactly what Joel had to do.

That’s horrible. We had our first hard freeze here in Greenville, SC this morning (did rebound into the 50s).

Was more cool stuff than I was expecting. I really want to see more of this new Sucker Punch game, I love those guys and they've been really quiet for a while now. 

 

Also Monster Hunter demo December 9th, omg! Not that I need one to help me decide to buy it, I just want to play it lol.

Where's the hype, y'all? The Steam thread talked more about the PS4 conference announcements than you.

And the Xbox thread.

Youch, I'd be dying at 84 degrees. Even at 70, I need to turn on the air conditioner.

Did you miss the exciting last of us discussion panel? We’re about to discuss disc vs. digital unless some sweet plus games and deals come on.

If you liked Heavy Rain, definitely grab Until Dawn, which is a horror game inspired by the Heavy Rain-style of adventure game.

Until Dawn was definitely good.  I nearly lost at the ending trying to hold the controller still.  That was intense.

 

Speaking of Heavy Rain, I can't wait for Detroit: Become Human.  That trailer today was great.  It's shaping up to be as good or better than Heavy Rain.

I get them here asap but lately the stock seems very low

 

I post them here rather than start a thread because of that, I post them before I even buy one and try to check 5-10 times a day so at least some folks here can get one

 

still the best deal on psn credit (which is always a pain to get a good deal for) so I'm still gonna keep track

I loved the game a lot, but that part was annoying.  I actually closed the game before it could autosave and reloaded my save multiple times just because the only way I could keep the controller still enough for that long that many times was to literally memorize when those parts were and set the controller on the floor.  I know I'm not the only one (I've seen threads about other people being annoyed by it and even providing tips on how to survive those moments, like turning off controller vibration settings, etc).
