By the end of The Last of Us, I felt like I WAS JOEL, not just playing as his character. That was enough for me to call it my game of the year.

And yeah, the violence seemed a bit over the top but never out of place. In fact, I'd say they nailed the brutality of it. Near the end of the game, I killed someone with a brick, which I had done throughout a good portion of the game, and it still gave me an uneasy feeling. It wasn't glamorized in any way.

I wouldn't say it was over the top at all. Every time I choked a guy out I tensed up and held the button through the animation even though you don't have to.

Emotionally I did not think it was over the top at all. I felt great satisfaction in some of the brutal ways I was able to deal with anyone or anything that hurt or might hurt Ellie. smile.gif Yes my friends and family worry about me sometimes =P

Yeah the way it presented the violence was just right...but I did think there was too much of it. Pretty much the only thing you do in the game is kill people and watch cutscenes. By the end the stats put the body count at 500...for something so otherwise mature, that's pretty ridiculous. Hopefully for the sequel they can find a way to walk up and interact with someone in a way other than choking them.

Lol....it'd be pretty funny if you could sneak up to a clicker, and give them a back rub.

Your comment reminded me of something, did anyone try to shoot the giraffes? If so, what actually happened?

I want to believe that the games crashes and your PS3 spits the disc out in disgust.

Ya right, seems like that would be the appropriate thing to do. Seems like my "GTA" train of thought took over there. That moment was pretty awesome.

I tried, I was looking at them up close in my scope and thought, what the heck? Wouldn't let you shoot. I also got curious after that and tried to shoot ellie. Same result.

Also thought this was funny:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
In the beginning of the game when you are walking through the streets with what's her name (the one that talks you into taking the quest), I tried to run past the gaurds a few times at a barricade. First to times they shoved me down and warned me. Third time they shoved me down and popped me in the head.
Am I the only one that tries this kind of stuff just to see how the game reacts? You can tell a lot about the thought process and quality of hte programmers by pushing the boundaries and doing things that people usually don't think about.

Needless to say, ND is good.

I held my breath in a "should I or shouldn't I" moment and pulled the trigger. I let off one round from the hunter rifle square between the "horns" of the smallest giraffe. It most definitely lets you shoot them, but nothing happens.

I completely expected Ellie to be like "Cmon Joel you sick motherfu**er thats really effed up!"

"Damn, you can't get black levels like that on your projector!"

I just met up with Bill. My work hours prevent me from making much progress, tonight I can stay up late without worry and make some decent progress.

I had the underground mall area glitch out on me, no way to do it as intended thanks to their AI being randomly screwy.
