It has the right politics.
Yeah, it's a word that gets thrown around far too often, in automobile and recording terms I believe it's something that's twenty plus years old?How can GQ call it a classic before it’s even released?
Maybe because he didn't liked the writing in tlou1 or previous nd games?How can you say you don't like the writing when you haven't experienced or seen a full playthrough of the game yet?
Its like reviewing a movie without seeing it

Then, shutting the blinds, closing the door and turning the TV up super loud, we play the whole thing out. More than half a decade of teamwork. Of time. Of patience. Of faith. Of convincing the team this will work. Of convincing himself this will work. Of convincing Pearl Jam it’ll work. Of performance-capture sessions. Of late-night rewrites. Of nauseating bug fixes. Of endless level reviews. Of unexpected delays. Of unprecedented pandemics. Of leaks. Of abuse from so-called fans. All in a game that, in Druckmann’s words, “says something” – about violence, justice, adversity and trauma. A game that tops the original, just like its namesake.
The game’s final scene hangs, still, for the longest time, then cuts to black. Druckmann sits forward and looks at me, his hair a little greyer, his smile wider than ever.
Imagine thinking a cliche revenge story with a disproportionate number of alphabet people is good writing
Not sure what COD has to do with this so ill just round it out by saying well you're a moronSure. Go back to COD.
I mean, i still enjoyed at least the gameplay of mgs5 and the absolute craziness of mgs4 but DS was too much.Thats why mgs1-3 were so good because he had the story written for him, after 3 hos writer left snd the quality dipped down. Kojima is the george lucas of video games, ruining his own creations
A classic? It's a fucking video game, not a movie. Maybe they should be comparing it to classic video games instead of movies? Oh that's right, they can't because as a game it's complete dogshit. I will never not be mad about TLOU's "story/cinematic experience first, gameplay mechanics and interesting uses of the medium last" mantra spreading to other Sony studios and becoming their #1 philosophy. At least MGS 1-3 had unique gameplay that pushed the medium forward to complement the cutscene and story heavy nature of those games. Druckmann is free to make what he wants, but to label his "games" as pushing the industry forward is a joke. The only thing it pushes forward is his ego and perceived self-righteousness.
That box just shouts fake to me when you read it. "Experience the devastating physical and emotional consequences of Ellie's vengeance as you embark on a relentless pursuit of those who've wronged her." At least I hope it's fake as it reads terribly and sounds like it was written by a fan of the game who had the chance to write their own blurb!
What's fake about it? Its literally the plot of this classicThat box just shouts fake to me when you read it.

At least I hope it's fake as it reads terribly and sounds like it was written by a fan of the game who had the chance to write their own blurb!
All I could think about after reading that article was how much money Sony must have paid GQ to suck Neil Druckmann's dick.

and I havent experinced thelast of us yet but I have played all the metal gears and all the praise that kojima gets it should really go toTomokazu Fukushima. He is the guy who wrote
Mgs1-3 and you can tell the quality was there, he left after 3 and kojima was the sole writer and the stories took a nose dive.
4 sucked because he tried to wrsp stupid plot points that all link to one thing "nanomachines", hey remember vamp being a vampire "nanomachines" remember how liquid mind controlled ocelot "nanomachine" oh btw naomi has cancer and she going to die in 30 seconds you wana know why, nanomachines
and donteven get me started with the false advertising with V and the plot twist people guessed 2 years before the game came out.
kojima is a guy that likes the smell of his own farts.
They are for me i love the metal gear series but after 3 the story went down fucking hill, and kojima is a hack writer, he literally is george lucas of gaming who tore his whole series apart whilst people thought he was a genious, people think Druckman is over hyped, boy oh boy wait until kojima enters the room.MGS 4 - 9.4 on metacritic
Death stranding - 8.2
Yeah, terrible games. Sure, they may not be for you, but your whole approach to this just screams sad kid in mom's basement.
Objectively, Kojima is one of the greatest producers ever in gaming history, no matter what bullshit you spew on a forum.
Also objectively, I enjoyed a grand total of 2 of his games.
Go back to COD.
The two (Druckmann and Gross) have had some serious fights too – she had a successful six-month crusade to convince him to swap the fates of two characters – but they always, eventually, get back to harmony. “We agree on 80 per cent of things,” she says. “I think that comes from working for so long together.”
I hope they talk about this swap in an interview or podcast. Would love to hear which characters they switched up and the thought behind it.
