I'm curious to know, how many of you guys that have either experienced the original version or PS4 Remastered, still purchased the Remake?
I am ashamed to say this is my third time purchasing this game. To be fair I still had about fifty bucks in PSN credit so I only payed about twenty which is actually a fair price.
Not sure why they didn’t tie in a TLoU 2 Director’s Cut for the new show and then remaster TLoU for PS6 in 7 years when it would blow minds and introduce a new gen to the story. Poorly timed in my mind.This is why the remake was a bad idea. It was and is a truly great game but the end of the day it is a PS3 game. Calling it outdated is just pointless since it is a 10 year old game. Let it be a product of it's time. The PS4 version was already at 60 FPS so what else could they have done without completely redoing everything?
Maybe I'm no a true fan, but this might be the first Naughty Dog game that I'm unwilling to pay full price.
I don't blame you. It is not like it is a new game but I was looking to replay it anyway and twenty dollars of my own money is a good price.Maybe I'm no a true fan, but this might be the first Naughty Dog game that I'm unwilling to pay full price.
I might pick up later on Steam, to me the PS4 Remastered especially played on PS5 is not outdated at all
Bought on PS3, PS4 and now PS5
Why does it matter? Should a remake not be full priced for some unexplained reason?
Or do you mean people who bought the first should be entitled to a discount? Did the original come with a life time coupon I’m not aware of?
Nah I am not white knighting it. I simply pointed out that multiplayer was equally important to some people. I agreed there was some hyperbole in that entire statement but there was some truth. You somehow landed on the other end of the spectrum.. calling it completely bullshit when clearly there is enough there to be a common discussion point between many reviews. Pulling out price charts and splitting hairs to try to dismiss a subjective opinion based on someone else's experience.lol....if I'm "too pressed" then you are white knighting it a bit too much. I think what the reviewer actually says in the review is much better.
"The Last Of Us Part 1 is not only the most expensive version of the game ever but also the most content light, since it completely removes the multiplayer element..."
Nothing wrong with that at all. So yeah, I prefer that the statements made be about a game in a review be straight forward and accurate. Should I adjust my opinion on that to align with your sensibilities?
Call me crazy, but I actually enjoyed part 2 more.Me
I enjoy TLOU1 far more than 2 in terms of pacing and story
So even if it’s basically a part 2 reskin, part 2 looks great
Call me crazy, but I actually enjoyed part 2 more.
Maybe its because I don't agree with how Joel handled the firefly situation at the end of part 1, while I understand why he did it, but it felt morally wrong for me which toked me out of the immersion. I really wished there was at least a choice.
So when he died in part 2, I felt he deserved it.
I'd also love to have 50 bucks magically appear in my wallet so I could spend less on a nextgen game
I like ShillUp's review. He left all of his bias for the game behind and judge it objectively. He made a lot of good points.Recommended by SkillUp!

Okay bro it's half the game (if you played multiplayer as much a singleplayer) for %175 of the price (If you are paying in British pounds). Is that close enough for you?
Ashamed? Don't be. If it's worth it to you, then its a worthy purchase. It's not worth it to me, I've had my fill of TLOU, but I don't poopoo on those who do. It's always a matter of worth, to you the buyer.
Against my better judgement I bought this but in reality it is the first game with some visual and some minor gameplay upgrades. They could have released a patch for the PS4 version and done the same thing.
How?? It’s always subjective when a person is telling you how much they like something. Unless it’s about the number of pixels or triangles or some other metric you can have an actual factual figure on I don’t see how it’s possible to be objective. You can always try though.
Noted. The next time I hear someone say "I could eat a horse" or "It's funny you should say that" I am going to make sure to call them out on the accuracy. That's no way to interact with someone with such lies. Idioms are for idiots I say.Or just cut out the bullshit and say it costs more and has less.

Maybe not an idiom down to the exact definition but it's a common expression. You never heard "half the x for double the price" before?Saying the price of a game has doubled is not an idiom.
Ii got your explanation. I was talking about in a more general term when you are try to recommend something to an audience.Read my explanation that I've posted above. You are mixing looking at a product with a objective perspective versus I like it or not taste.

Anyway I am done discussing this. It's clear that we disagree what a review should be. I thought it was widely understood that they are subjective opinion pieces on games and that people tend to follow reviewers that align more with their tastes. You seem to want this to be more of an exact science based on what I am reading. I am not going to change any opinions here.
Perception of value is subjective, as well as reviews.The market has spoken. Reviewers knocking review scores because they don't agree with pricing is foolish, full stop.
Mentioning price is part of the review process. Me as a potential buyer always want to know if I'll get my money worth.
Especially when I'll be paying "premium" for a remake
It's actually astounding. The amount of improvement that Naughty Dog makes in just a few years in incredibly impressive. Just look at Uncharted 4 compared to Lost Legacy. And this example right here is wild!"The Last Of Us Part I is just The Last Of Us Part II with higher resolution!!!"

Then I must have severe reading comprehension problems because half of your replies in our entire convo were just that, how the reviewer should have said it based on your preferences. You just did it here again, you prefer reviews to stick to facts when talking about factual manners. Then in another breath you go on about how most people play it for single player so multiplayer is not half the game. Why you chose to focus on some exact accuracy and then say shit like that in the next post is beyond me.I'm not discussing "what a review should be". I'm talking about a single line summarizing a game. The only times I've heard something similar to "half the x for double the price" is when the person saying actually meant "half the x for double the price". When talking about factual matters, I prefer reviews to stick to facts. And you are right, you are not going to change my opinion on that. Not sure why you would even care to, frankly.
good on Niel for pitching the support.
It's literally its launch weekend in a market where we are all starved for games. Lets see how its sales do in a couple of weeks.
Theres enough hardcore fans to purchase this week one to push it to number one in all charts. Especially for september. UK will be the same next week. I dont think it will sell gangbusters at 70 pounds but its a perfect bundle game for xmas.
I can say the same about your conclusion. It's stupid.That's a conclusion only you can reach. If that mindset were to be applied equitably, then every single game would have it's own thread about whether it's worth $xx. Why? Because we all value different games differently for our own unique reasons.
But you're not. This is the standard price of a PS5 game.
Not an upgrade but we had a full price PS5 game that before release suddenly went from 70$ to PS+ before so if this suddenly went from a 70$ to a free upgrade to PS+ subscribers it wouldn't be weird.Id say its a bit more work than a patch. Has another game made an upgrade like this via a patch?
I can say the same about your conclusion. It's stupid.
To say that it had the same budget to make as Returnal, for example, is just absurd.
the $70 is not justified
I bought it
