It will just throw some trashy story in your face that you have seen done ten times better already in hollywood blockbusters or books, and then mechanics, menus, tutorials, infos blabla who cares? Super Mario Bros or Zelda its just PLAYING A GAME like Dead Island, thats what gamers want in the long run or they are always left unsatisfied waiting for the next "game" release!

So why not ignore it and play another game?

So focusing on a story that can expand what gaming has become is bad? Instead you like mindless time wasters that you LITERALLY get nothing intellectual out of....well okay. That's your choice but don't slam ME because I like a good story.

I think mostly very young people might still be impressed with a story. But really if you have seen some tv series or movies, or read some GREAT books, the last of us story is nothing special at all.

Millions judging by sales, professional reviews and user reviews.

Why do these TLoU hate topics keep being started by New Users?
Troll alts, I assume?

... now you're saying that it's good and bad at the same time, with two different alts? How sad are you?

Ahh one of these posts again. If you want to blame a higher focus on plots, go to MGS. They introduced the idea of throwing in hours and hours of story at the gamer and emphasising it over gameplay.

Frankly, gamers want these type of games. Thats why TLOU was so well received (not by reviewers only, there is a reason it has 9.1 user score on metacritic) and MGS is still going strong.

And yes the TLOU story is nothing new. But its quite new for games. And they did a great job of developing the characters, something a lot of games don't bother to do.
