TLOU isnt even the best game released this year, bioshock and tomb raider where way superior and sold tons more.
uh? both of those sentiments are completely wrong.
The Last of Us is the best selling game of this entire year (and the highest rated game for that matter). you're accounting for how long Tomb Raider has been out vs The Last of Us having been out for a little over three weeks. the Bioshock: Infinite statement is similarly misinformed.
but nice opinion, though. when TLOU takes the consensus GOTY I'll be sure to consult you for your legitimate opinion.
I'll remain optimistic, after GTA IV I'm definitely managing my expectations realistically. people are seriously setting themselves up for disappointment with the amount of hype they're throwing towards this game. it's going to inevitably lead to a lot of **** posting, and hate articles directed at it if for nothing else but it's popularity and series' fatigue.
I think GTA V will most likely take it, if it does at all, because of the gameplay and TLoU will most likely get runner up at best, if not just a honorable mention because of its story. The GTA franchise has already proven itself to be MUCH less restrictive and freeform, and possibly less punishing than TLOU has, and that caters to the casual crowd better who just want to play to have fun and not have to think so much.
Plus, due to all the silly, controversial/pop culture popularity the GTA series has had around it, TLOU cant really compete. Hell, Im not a GTA fan and even I have to admit GTA V looks fun as hell and kind of makes me want to buy it.
Honestly, it depends on what site. The Last of Us is game of the generation for me. GTAV is looking to have some sweet gameplay but the story will fall by the wayside and you won't really care about anything that happens other than making it to the next mission. The story in GTAIV and all other ones were terrible. I mean they started out good but it's like by the end of the game they got lazy and just gave up.
