C'mon people! The story was great, voice acting, presentation, graphics, all awesome. But why has no one mentioned the linearity of this game? It literally has no exploration besides unlocking a few hidden doors with shivs. Am I missing something here? But when FFXIII is a game by Enix, everyone bashes it considerably. What gives?

TLoU is not even close to the same level of linearity. And FFXIII is nearly thrice as long.

RPGs aren't supposed to be so damn linear.

Linearity is not a bad thing if the game is good. I'm not saying FFXIII is bad but I just didn't like the gameplay.

Great graphics, great characters, but the story felt lackluster. The battle system was something else as they had a good idea but turned into something unexpected. I like the ideas of the monster roaming around but hated that I was only able to control one character through battle. Plus I would think they learn a thing or two from the KH series battle system.

If a game is going to be linear it better have a plot and characters I give a damn about or gameplay that is good. FFXIII has neither imo.

Really, TLoU just uses linearity to its advantage and creates a really strong bond with its narrative. FFXIII tried that but it never had a story worth focusing on to begin with so it just falls flat.

No exploration besides a few hidden doors? Have you even played the game?
