The Last Of Us
Just finished it and wow...............I don't know which game I liked better this year so far, Bioshock Infinite or this. No non-video gamer can argue that video games aren't art with games like these two. The story in this game from start to finish will emotionally exhaust anyone with a heart, this game is a roller coaster ride of taking your emotions up and down. The character interactions is the best thing about it, mostly between Joel and Ellie but also the other characters in the game as well, this is a very human game from a realistic perspective. Gameplay was great aside from certain puzzles, graphics were boss, Gustavo Santaolalla was an excellent pick for the soundtrack, and the atmosphere was powerful. What I liked so much about this game which caught me off guard while playing it is that they took an already overused plot genre with already overused cliches from other medias but evolved it into something more original and credible breathing new life into the genre. I almost didn't pick up the game because I thought it was just another "zombie flick turned game" but I was pleasantly surprised. One thing I did like about this game over Bioshock Infinite is that there's a New Game + feature. But personally, what I seriously hated the most about this game is that almost every character drops G-bombs like they're trying to win the lottery. I know the world and almost everyone in it as went to hell but dude. Would recommend anyone to play this game whether you're a fan of genre or not, you don't have to cop it immediately if you're not a fan but I highly advise going for it when the price and the hype drops down. Either this game or Bioshock Infinite could get GOTY but I wouldn't be surprised (and moderately annoyed) if Grand Theft Auto 5 does. Maybe GTA5 will have an emotionally invested plot like the finale for GTA4, maybe not.
