Dark Souls is a cheap rip off of Demon Souls.

The best game of the decade is Chromehounds, though.

We should probably stop shilling for Nintendo until they stop being shitty.

Have you played The Last of Us? Definitely a great PS3 game...

This could not be further from the truth. The game blew, hardcore. Nice visuals, but ridiculously repetitive and incredibly unrewarding. OMG in a zombie apocalypse there really is no hope, woe is me let me replace my daughter.

3/10

I played Last of Us thinking it was a video game. Sadly, I was wrong.

Well, it's a video game, but only in the technical sense. It's more like MGS4 where you press some buttons for 10 minutes to get to the next cutscene. I'd say "interactive movie with feels" is more appropriate. Either way, it's a huge step back for video games, which are supposed to be skill based and completely interactive. When you're sitting there doing nothing but watching a cutscene for longer than 30 minutes, then you're playing a bad video game. Fuck, even pressing "a" to cycle dialogue would have improved it considerably.

I borrowed my friends PS3 while he was away because I thought I'd try out The Last of Us. I played it for about 30 minutes and I haven't had the PS3 powered on since then. I think this was over two months ago.

That's what the beginning of Witcher 2 felt like. It was so boring. Thankfully, the cutscenes got shorter and less frequent.

I took the time to read positive and negative reviews after playing the game, because that's what I do. There's no middle ground, it is either the greatest game ever made or a total shitfest.

It's a shitfest.

I think it comes down to the demographic. Older gamers (most of us) are probably going to dislike it for what it does to the video game genre, the fact that they're trying to make a movie based on it is telling enough. The younger generation, who I will dub "sub humans", are probably going to love it. Especially those who grew up in the ps2 era where the blockbuster video games were becoming more like movies than games.

Final Fantasy X, which Junker mentioned, is one of the big games that made "interactive movie" a thing... then it just got out of hand, as you can see with The Last of Us. I still love FFX regardless, probably because of nostalgia or something, but it's got a lot of problems when you analyze it deeply.

Why can't people tell stories in der video games?

It has interesting story mechanics that aren't available to most other mediums like fail states and choice.

I bought Windward It is very peaceful and you actually have to sail with the wind and stuff. Its a lot like Skyrates, which as supes will tell you is a furry sex plane simulator, with a live economy.
