No MP is a non issue for me, I never even played a full round of the MP in the first game. To me TLOU is all about the single player experience. I know some others may be disappointed and that's fine but I'm glad they didn't divert resources from the game they wanted to make just to cram a half assed MP mode in.

I mean I agree with JinCA

I played maybe like 2 rounds of TLOU multiplayer and never came back. Other games do multiplayer better.

The SP story and animation and emotion are what make TLOU shine. MP is not needed in this game. It will do perfectly fine (GOTY?) without mp.

Sony has always been about above and beyond single player games and I for one am happy they haven't abandoned that pedigree to embrace modern gaming norms.

You will defend any negative PS news and yes this is a negative..a negative that shows why Xbox has been making superior exclusives as of late.
No I have said all along I don't play the MP, you act like a child at times man it's sad, you start accusing anyone who disagrees with you of stupid crap rather than just accepting that someone has a different opinion than you do. If they have limited resources for a game I'd rather it all go to an epic single player game than having to split part of that off to add an MP portion that I won't play.

Xbox has had superior exclusives? which ones? Gears? that's the only one they've put out in the past 2 years that's gotten decent reviews and Sony had their biggest year of exclusives last year so I'd like to know what you are basing your opinion on other than maybe YOU don't like that they aren't focused on MP so it somehow means their exclusive are of a lower quality even though they sell far better and review better (a metric you use often in your own arguments) so which exclusives are you talking about?

Forza Horizon 4 was praised and has an awesome metacritic score and the best selling Forza ever. Came out just last fall. Try again?

Only PS fanboys acted like reviews didn't matter all of a sudden and praised(you did) Days Gone.
This is a negative yet we get the predictable(from you and other PS fanboys) MP isn't important spin just like Days Gone was good right? LOL
Gears 5 and Forza Horizon 4 are better than anything from Sony the last few years and most importantly and this is a HUGE factor...they have waaaaaay better replay than Sony exclusives.

No I said I liked Days Gone and I didn't think people who gave it negative marks because it went against their SJW views should be taken seriously, you liked those posts if you remember, I really enjoy the game but I can also see where it would get some negative marks but it's better than a 6.5. I also said that Crackdown 3 was a fun game, the game had a good foundation and if the devs had done a little more with the story and some of the stuff in the open world it would have been a really good game, it's worth playing. You were trashing Days Gone long before it even came out and continued to do it without even playing it, something you do quite often and seems like a waste of time. When I talked about Gears 5 I played through it from start to finish so I can comment on that with first hand knowledge of what it's like, have you played through all of the other games you trash? I doubt it.

You think Forza Horizon 4 is better than Spider-Man, God of War and Sony's other exclusives? If it turned out that you had never played it I wouldn't exactly be surprised, not saying you haven't but again I wouldn't be surprised. You can be a MP focused player that's fine but trashing other games because they don't have MP is stupid.

As far as replay value, I've played through TLOU 3 times and will at least once more before the new one comes out, I'm on my 2nd playthrough of Days Gone, I'll play Spider-Man and God of War again, I'll play Detroit again. Hell I'm planning on a 2nd RDR2 playthrough and I've never touched the MP and don't plan on it, if the feature is there and I don't use it than it offers no value to me. Most people don't buy a single player story focused game for the MP, is it a nice option to have if they have the time and resources to include it? sure but does it make the game worse if it's not there? Nope, I'd rather have a strong single player and no MP than a crap single player and MP but that's just me, it has nothing to do with Sony it has to do with my gaming tastes but you have to go making childish accusations that have nothing to do with the conversation and it makes no sense.

I think I’m ready for next gen. This isn’t blowing me away like I expected it to.
I agree, I think it looks really good and I can't wait to play it but I want something that looks beyond what this is doing now. I have seen cleaner footage and it does look impressive but I'm just ready to move to a new gen ASAP.

If you want to see a high quality version of it gamersyde has it in 4K and it looks really clean compared to the stuff on youtube, you can make out the faces during gameplay much better etc. I think the chromatic aberration is really hurting the visuals though but still I want a new gen now lol.

Ps5 launch title or their new IP “Stray Cross”???
The game is taking up 2 discs and isn't even an open world game, it's supposedly around 40+ hours if what some on twitter are saying is to be believed so I can see why they wouldn't be able to include an online mode. Anyone who says 40 hours of entertainment isn't worth $60 is crazy, I can see saying that about an 8 hour game but not about something with this much content and these production values. I know you didn't say that it wasn't worth it so please don't think I was saying that in response to you :)

I don't have time for trash games like crackdown,days gone and am very anti $65 10-20 hour single player only games like tlou/2.

Yes I find Gears 5 and Forza Horizon 4 better than those games and most of Sony's offerings this gen with Bloodborne being the exception as those games offer more which makes them a better value.

I have all of the above mentioned games so not sure what you are getting at?
