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 love how many people are so fascinated by the fact that something you can drink has a pH slightly below 7. So shocking!

Yes, it's acidic enough to work well as toilet cleaner, but a lemon would work even better. Fresh squeezed orange juice is more acidic. Yet no one is freaking out for pages and pages about the idea of eating citrus fruit  :roll: .

 

You know what else is a great solvent? Water. 

Coca Cola's unhealthiness has absolutely jack shit to do with its acidity  :roll: .

I loved all of the first three. They were all amazing and among the most memorable games I've ever played. 

 

Andromeda, however, is such a POS. It is the most tedious, boring game.

 

In short, you go to planets, find a desk, hit a button, scan things, and then talk to people. This is literally the game. It sucks. I wouldn't buy it for $20 because. I think it is that bad. 

Totally agree. It's more misgudied third-person "open world" nonsense.

 

It's not hard to understand what these games get wrong fundamentally: sandboxes aren't fun. To make a good game, developers have to craft new and interesting experiences, not copy-paste the same boring ones a hundred times and put out press releases about how much "content" there is to "explore".

The Mass Effect trilogy was good for exactly the same reason KOTOR was good. A good storyline with interpersonal developments between compelling characters, with lots of new unique individually-crafted experiences to encounter as you travel through the galaxy and plot. 

 

Hopefully one day AAA gaming will escape from their "open world" obsession and find a new shitty design misconception to beat into the ground.
