Same for me. I went in blind, didn't follow the spoilers, ignored all the videos and articles about it. I was here defending the game before it came out. I even called it the game of the generation when the reviews came out. Then I got to play it until the end with a fresh mind and I was stomped.
The haters were right all along. It's like Neil wanted to make a game about his new dream characters, Abby and Lev, and he used the sequel of TLOU to do it. He tried to build a story around them to make it fit but it was a big cringeworthy mess and he destroyed TLOU1 legacy in the process.
He's lucky his new characters all happen to be lgbtq+ so now he has a mindless army defending his shitty story and characters. You all can't admit they suck because you think you are sticking it to the alt-right or something.
I could give a fuck about what the internet or "alt-right" thinks. I played the game, I enjoyed it, and even redid my favorite chapter this morning on grounded because it's FUN.
Read my post history, I was shitting all over the game and my mind changed afterwards because I realized that knowing the major story beats wasn't the whole story and felt like it's one of the best stories in games since Silent Hill 2 and I stand by that.
People want video games to be considered art and tell daring stories but when they do suddenly it's an issues because it's not gamer wish fufillment.
