@mooseymcman: Well everyone is entitled to their own opinions and enjoyment obviously. I did not enjoy playing the game half as much as I enjoyed unraveling the story and I think objectively the gameplay mechanics just weren't that great. For a game of such scope it felt strange how half baked a lot of it was.
Stating that the gameplay mechanics objectively weren't that great is ridiculous.
It's only ridiculous if you're one of those people that can't understand how an objective analysis would work. But were not here to discuss the finer point of the English language obviously!
It's a shame they're not offering a discount code for original owners, but for those that haven't experienced the story yet what better way to do so than on a next gen system. There are some games I wouldn't mind buying again to play with better graphics and smaller load times, Last of Us isn't one of them but who knows what the future may hold. At the same time I hope this won't become a trend as I much rather play new games than revisit old ones.
