Currently playing through the Last of Us, I think I am at around 13-14 hours in, so I figure the end is near pretty soon. Will likely beat it either today or tomorrow.
I haven't had a game take up this much of my time in a long long while, that is, in terms of concentrated gameplay. Each session is like...an average of 4-5 hours haha! Anyways, playing through on Hard Mode...I like the lack of ammunition. Gives a sense of urgency, and forces you to think through different situations. Great game so far.
This game has been a helluva lot longer than I thought -- which is great. I'm a slow player, but I've grabbed a lot of the collectables and I've barely run out of supplies (they're, literally, everywhere when you look hard enough...'cept ammo, but the game throws you a lot of guns so you can switch up what bullet they're getting hit with at least).
Fuck the cinematics are short but perfect.
I don't know what this games does to get the grade it does, cinematics for sure, visuals yeah, music is right. I think it's like the Shawshank Redemption of games; sure other titles have had better action, or more engaging or triumphant music, or fancy stylized settings, or deep and complicated characters.... but it's a mix of things that tell the story right all arranged with the perfect elements of a strong ass title. So yeah, it gets the 10/10 from me, I can't wait for DLC (and I pray we get a story about Ish's adventures!!!)
