@zleunamme: I tried so hard to like that game. I tried very very hard but the combat was boring, most of the characters were bland and the PC version had some wonky technical issues.

The game had problems but the main character was not one of them.

I agree with everyone saying that last year was a bit of a disappointment. That's probably because the year of FMV games and the CBS parodies were a VERY tough act to follow.

Has long as I get some game of the year deliberation podcasts, I'll be happy.

@shindig: Please, for the love god, no. None of that. We don't need anymore of that.

The story itself is fairly self-contained so you don't really NEED to have read the books or seen the show but I honestly believe that you won'T get full enjoyment out of it without any prior knowledge of the back story. I highly recommend watching the TV show up to at least the end season 3 before playing it.

Alright, I'll go there : The Last of Us

Let me make one thing perfectly clear : I really liked it and I think it's a great game.

When I finished it, I had no desire to ever play it again. I did it, I saw what it was like. It was a well crafted experience but it didn't blow me away. The story was pretty good but I've never been a fan of zombie apocalypse stories. The game play... Man I don't know... I guess I liked it. It was competent but for some reason it also didn't click for me. At one point I felt it was some chore to get to next cutscene. Near the end, I was bored out of my skull and just sprinted past most of the encounters because I hated it. Some of the encounters were fun, tense and exciting but after a while I wished I was playing Uncharted.

I see a lot of people praising it as a masterpiece. I wish I could see what they are seeing. I know the story is great by video game standard. I know it looks amazing for a PS3 game. I know the voice acting is phenomenal and the performance capture is best in class. I guess I'm just missing something.

@persona3rocks: Could you please do us a favor and just accept the fact that some people don't like the Last Of Us because they think it's linear and that's a flaw to them? This is getting ridiculous.

@persona3rocks: To some people, certain things are flaws and they are not to others. For examples, I think the controls the Last Of Us are clunky and un-intuitive. I think that's a flaw. Other people would argue that the controls are that way for a reason, that it's a design choice and that it's not a flaw.

You can use that argument for pretty much anything.

I think a certain dish isn't spicy enough. It's a flaw. You say it's just right, it's by design, it's not a flaw.

At this point, it's pointless bickering.

I usually have three connected at all times but right now I only have my PS3 and my Wii U. The third one is usually a rotation of NES, SNES or N64 depending on my mood. My Wii is gathering dust since I got a Wii U.

I also have my PC hooked up on my desk but I don't think that counts.

Like a lot of people here, I usually listen to it while driving to or from work, when doing chores, the dishes, cooking and doing my cardio. I used to listen to it while playing games that aren't dialog heavy like grinding in RPGs but a second monitor + Netflix / Quick Looks took care of that.

Like I said in the thread on the forums about this. I'm glad they're doing this. I want this game to be good and I don't want them to mess it up.

@frankiebeanz: There are 4 USB ports on the Wii U. Two in the front, two in the back. Using two Gamecube controller adapters works fine apparently.
