    I have Post 'The Last Of Us' Depression, none of my other games seem worth playing.

    Damn you Naughty Dog!
    I can agree with this. I have just sold my copy. I like, 99.9% of us thought it one of the greatest games ever, and I would dearly love to go through it again, just to spend more time with the characters, but alas my time with it has passed. I will still post about and reat about it all the time mind you ;)

    That's probably as good a game to follow TLoU with. It's a stunner.

    I suck at this.

    Love the atmosphere and the tension is incredibly well delivered but, I suck at this.

    Oh!

    I hope to finish Kratos own 'little' journey as swiftly as I can.

    ... am loving the PlayStation 3.

    What are the parts you gather for in the game? (The ones that look like cogs)

    You use them to upgrade your weapons on workbenches dotted throughout the game.

    No worries.

    My advice, build the holsters first!

    ;)

    It's amazing what Joel can do with a few cogs and some sticky tape

    Journey can be finished in under 2 hrs so it's a good option.

    Is Journey really that good? I've been tempted to buy for a while but have been reluctant to part with money as it seems really short.

    I think so, it's a bit game-as-art but if you like that sort of thing then have a go. It's one of the most uplifting games I have ever played.

    I enjoyed Journey but it certainly didn't grab me in the way it has many others.

    In my humble opinion, it's overrated, and far from a life-changing gaming experience.

    I'd give it 8/10 whereas The Last of Us is 10/10 all day long.

    I'm not sure its my kind of game, but I'd like to give it a go nonetheless.

    I'll probably play it at some point before I get a PS4 just so I didn't miss out!

    To each his own, but Journey is in my all time PS3 top fives and, for me, it's special because, in very sharp contrast to a game like The Last of Us, it did so with such minimal set dressing. No dialogue, hardly any controls, very limited options and yet the game is as rich and engaging as anything else out there. The end sequence was as close to a religious experience as my shrivelled atheist heart will ever get. I'd really urge you to give it a go :)

    I'm sure I will give in at some point!

    Sorry for de-railing the thread somewhat...

    Looking forward to a couple of hours on TLOU tonight (only get to play once the wife and baby are asleep!)

    Oh jesus that hotel basement / spores / evil feckers bit is amazing, so rich it felt like a real taste of next gen. You could taste the atmosphere is was so thick.

    Yeah that was the standout moment of the whole game for me. The whole section was terrifying.

    @Mr_Sleep
    Journey is the most over rated style over substance crap ive ever played. Its hardly a game just some stupid floaty shape moving from envitonment to environment. People just loved it because they jumped on the trendy bandwagon that it rode for a while.
    The Last if us is my all time favourite game though. It makes Uncharted look a bit cobbled together!

    Maybe i just didnt get it, but i went into Journey with an open mind and was really prepared to like it but it just didnt go anywhere. These kind of games are odd i think because they are all about personal interpretation of something quite abstract. This is why they are more Art than "game".... And yet if Journey is judged purely as just Art its still very shit!

    I can't summarise it better than this, so I'll just say I totally agree and Journey is easily one of my favourite games of the generation.



    As for TLoU, I must have done about 6 hours now - just got to the bit where they crashed the car (in Boston I think), which is the area from most gameplay demos they've shown. It's so, so good. It really reminded me of Resident Evil 2 when you're running around Bill's town. The item and resource management is spot-on because it gives a sense of depth and while there's a lot of shooting, it doesn't feel excessive or unnecessary. I really love the dialogue, I think Ellie is just a wonderful character. If BAFTAs are not given to this game it will be a fucking travesty.

    @Triggerhappytel Can you put some spoilers on the locations in your The Last of Us post please.

    We're blocking out all story points in this thread.

    Thanks

    I don't know, some of the outbursts from Ellie are starting to bug me. Especially when I'm in the stealth zone.

    @Triggerhappytel I'm at same bit as you. Think its pittsburgh. Really like the game but am struggling with shooting at times esp with infected. Usually as soon as I'm spotted I'm dead! Usually a bit of creative thinking with some bombs or molotovs gets me through! Those runners are seriously hard to stealth kill in my experience!

    Make sure to upgrade the weapon sway skill, it really improved my shooting. Don't forget about being able to throw bricks/bottles to stun things, that's also very useful sometimes. Although I always panicked and seemed unable to use the d-pad at the appropriate moment!

    Loving this, pretty much echoing everyone else's comments.

    One thing though. Is it bugging everyone else how much Ellie (or other NPC's) clip into Joel?
