The Last of Us 2: Spoilers
so wanted to talk about the game but I’m also not gonna burn through it so didn’t want to put a spoiler thread of for the end of the game. I’m going to update the title to where I’m at and anyone else will know spoilers only go as far as that chapter/entry.
So holy shit! I’m disappointed we got no Joel bad ass killing time. The second game was all Ellie too so I was looking forward to getting back in Joel’s boots. But that sequence with the hordes and running away was pretty cool. Also it would have been cool to get a seen with Joel telling Ellie the truth and her freaking out about it. Maybe having her run away as the catalyst for the story. Or being kidnaped once she tells the wrong people. But oh well.
Not sure what to think about Ellie being gay/bi. Like if they did it just because most gamers are men/boys. But I am definitely digging Dina as a character and already getting attached to her. Will have no problems with high emotions with the new team.
I’m definitely right back in it though and find myself searching every inch of every place and still being totally bare bones on ammo and stocks. Even moderate level I’m finding myself dying a lot. But not enough to turn the difficult down.
It’s strange to assume that the writers made a character gay to what, titillate their target audience? Representation in games is important but it doesn’t have to be for a reason or agenda, the character was written that way.
I’ve seen some touching comments from Jewish people glowing about having representation through Dina with her dialogue in the synagogue because they normally don’t get to relate with characters on that level.
What mode are you playing on? I’ve been playing hard and while I’ve been dying a lot too. I really like having to conserve the little ammo I have and it pushes me to scavenge and search every corner of the map.
I’m just starting Seattle Day 2 and loving it more than the 1st game.
the one thing that has me sort of pissed is when I know there’s a big area to search and I jump over something thinking it’s a secret area of items it ends up being a one way ticket to the next set piece and the auto save kicks in immediately so you can’t go back unless you constantly manual save. And you know you just missed out on a bunch of items in areas you didn’t search first.
The writing is incredible in this game and I’d put it up against most movies.
but I did not like the fact I had to play Abby. I’m loving the game though, although think it a little too outlandish. To believe there’s any stealth involved after you reach S and things you do to get inside is laughable. How do I tell what part I’m on? I see S.....Day 1.
I didn’t think the names were spoilerly so I just googled the list of parts and then put the number when I got to it.
