My opinion on The Last of Us went from "I should check this out" to "FUCK THIS GAME, FUCK NAUGHTY DOG, FUCK EVERYONE WHO RECOMMENDED IT!" when someone told me the game's story with zero regard for spoilers. If I had played through that game to get that conclusion I would have snapped the disc in two out of sheer rage.
That said, I think you can safely assume I would not have given the game a good review. On the flipside, I was just as angry at game reviewers for their poor scores for Fallout New Vegas. Yes, I had to reboot my 360 multiple times due to hard locks and crashes (And I played the game ten months post release with all the patches) and the reason I did this was because the game's story and world drew me in like nothing else prior; not even Fallout 3 had that kind of grip on me.
So, yeah...unlike the OP I want game reviewers to give me a complete and honest review of a game and Tom Chick clearly did that because his review starts with "I really liked the story, but goddamn you have to put up with a lot of gameplay bullshit" and that summarizes most games that the gaming press and gamers piss themsleves with joy over and it's refreshing to hear one of you finally come out and say it.
