I did enjoy it. It was a good game.

It was much better than that s***ty Uncharted series.
You would have to be mentally ill to think Uncharted is a s***ty series. Only to turn around and race 300 laps for hours on end in Forza or kick a soccer ball around all night on Fifa. Come on now. :wink:

This follow up to The Last of Us 1 did not interest me in the least when it was announced. Now having played through the entire game, I can't wait for part 2. Mostly because my favorite character in part 1 is Ellie. So the focus on her for this one is a win win. I can't wait.....but I know I will have to! :)

Glad to finally be catching up on the Uncharted series. Naughty Dog is a great developer. Microsoft should really secure a talented developer like them. Their contacted developers just lack that kind of dedication, imo.

I look forward to playing The Last of Us, then the sequel.

Ellie is OK. I really like redemption stories, so Joel was my fave.

The Last of Us’ Neil Druckmann Hits Back at Homophobic Critics


In The Last of Us: Left Behind DLC, Ellie and her best friend Riley share a kiss. While the touching moment has been dismissed as ‘just gals being pals’ by some, The Last of Us and The Last of Us Part Two writer Neil Druckmann has stated that Ellie is a lesbian, no question about it.

Druckmann also recently voiced his happiness in seeing the positive reactions to Ellie and Riley’s kiss from a reaction video to the DLC, saying the reactions made him “smile.” Being so proud of the DLC, it’s no surprise that Druckmann was quick to slam one homophobic player who tweeted to the writer saying that they are “totally against the promotion of gays” and that “being LGBT is not something to be proud of let alone given any merit in a video game.”

Druckmann called the anti-gay tweet “bigoted and sad” and said that for each post like this that he sees, he gets “1000s of positive ones from amazing fans.” The writer, who has previously advocated for more diversity in games, said that both kinds of feedback “inspire greater diversity in our games.” And in case his feelings on the matter were unclear, he also retweeted this.

With any mentions of Ellie being gay being kept to the standalone Left Behind DLC, many players won’t be aware that the character is gay. However, as she’s the star of the show in The Last of Us Part 2, it’s possible that the main game won’t shy away from mentions of her first love or her attraction to women.

How ridiculous. Someone's always got a problem with a video game. It's a game people.

By the way, when's this coming out? My body is ready for some The Last of Us 2. Almost feels like a drought when waiting for an amazing game like this even when there's plenty to play. Then i thank my lucky stars that i at least own a PS4.

I like that Druckmann didn't focus on the idiot but rather refuted him by saying far more people are supportive.

Re-watched the "extended look" and can't wait, my only issue so far is the part where Ellie says "I'm just a girl" I don't believe she'd say that after all she's been through and what she has done. That seems a bit lazy and preachy IMO like they are trying too hard instead of letting her actions speak for her, if it had fit with her character I wouldn't mind it but she was already too strong as a little girl to think like that so I can't see where that mindset would be coming from now that she has undoubtedly done so much more.
