Ellie performing revenge
Spoiler:
Abortion


Just finished her side, now onto Abby's. Loving this brutal game and especially the flashbacks with more into their past stories.

Finished it! Amazing game all around.
Spoiler:
Having to play as Abby fighting against Ellie in the theater was fucking sweet. The last fight was fucking awesome. Fucking Ellie should of let it go, lost her fingers and her goddess & son for nothing.
I think in part III Abby is gonna look for Ellie to help her.

This is a really good video about the game. It's about 20 minutes and focuses on the game's themes of empathy and anti-cultism, and the reactions from "gamers." I don't think I've seen a take on this game that's as close to how I felt playing through it. Really glad to see someone articulate it this way.

Obviously contains spoilers for both this game and the original. NSFW for language, violence, politics, and more.

My guess if they do a Part 3
Spoiler:
Abby finds out theres a brain surgeon that can perform the operation. She brings the info to Ellie and they go on a journey to reach the Surgeon. She wants her life to have meaning and said in a flashback she would give her life to save humanity.

I have started ..."The Second Story"...Day 2 I think....and I now see why the uproar, pushback and division among players on either it's great or just bad. Those who played the first one, you had two central characters who were opposite of each other go for a long, long dangerous journey across country....that well for me got attached to and became my favorite game chacters...now along with Jin in Ghost of Tsushima...then only to find and see that's suddenly changed....then find out you're seeing it all thru others that well for the most part; you have a Love & Hate Relationship with.

Visually, action, adventure, setting has been a fun, frustrating, roller coaster ride of emotion but I've taken a few days away from it now. Don't recall or think of any other game that has done this or for that fact could do this; Play as two with all ties to one......

Re: The Last of Us: Part II (PS4, 6/19/20)

Well finally finished it yesterday...a huge WOW factor....a roller coaster of emotions that had me glued and wanting more yet almost dreading playing the next part. Fantastic story...and yes, I agreed with The Ending as being fitting yet leaving the door open for ...several possible stories to continue. Actors and Motion Capture...simply the best I've seen; much like TLoU1 which I felt more like being ina Sci-Fi Stephen King mini-series than game sometimes...couldn't wait till next episode....

Overall...it deserved the 9.5-10 scores...though early on I wasn't so sure as to the direction the game/story might be heading after some surprises....in the end they maybe should've called it...The Last of Two of Us....having played this and Ghost of Tsushima...both were deserving of Game of the Year and frankly should've shared the award. Both Ghost and Last of us shared somewhat the same thing...side characters with their own stories that all tied to the main...and both a surprised awesome final......

Hats off to Naughty Dog...they and Sucker Punch are really truely masters at doing not just games but adventures...and two of my favorite Game Developers.....what a ride ith both games....

So, just to be clear... It wasn't too "woke" for you?

Just finished this. I am conflicted. While I think it was a very good game, I'm not quite sure it matched the first one. I am very torn on the split gameplay. I think the biggest issue is that I could never get behind the Abby character. I get her motivations, but it absolutely did nothing to make her likeable. But, on the flip side, that's what something good does; make you feel something,

I will say every time I thought the game was over, it kept going. Like at 4 different points I thought to myself this was the end only to have it keep going.

There's a new 60fps patch if you're playing on a PS5. (Still 1440p, if you're curious.)

finally played this since it didn't appear it was getting a true ps5 upgrade. wasn't sure what to think at the midpoint but enjoyed the back half more than the front. i thought it was a little long and repetitive and the overall story could have been a bit tighter, but well done for the most part.

if i had one complaint besides the repretition it was the throw you in a dark space with monsters that can one hit you coming from all directions is kinda eh at this point.
