Of course massive babies are already review bombing The Last of Us Part II

Seven years, plenty of hype and some slick trailers later, and today is a brilliant day for anyone who happens to carry a torch for The Last of Us Part II. A heck of a long time in the making, Naughty Dog’s latest effort is nothing short of a masterpiece in story-telling. At least that’s the consensus according to many a game reviewer, who had ample time with the game and spent weeks immersing themselves within a world gone mad.

In the days and weeks to come, there’s going to be a lot of love shown towards The Last of Us Part II, as the game’s core fanbase comes together to celebrate one of the final milestones of this generation in console gaming. Maybe you’ll love it. Maybe you won’t. Maybe you’ll be left feeling divided on whether you should enjoy the game or you find yourself disgusted by the sheer brutality present within the game.

And then there’s that minority of people, who just want to shit on everyone’s parade.

Over on Metacritic (Thanks Konfab!), a small mob of people who have nothing better to do with their time are busy review-bombing the game in a vain attempt to “own the SJWs”, offering poorly written takedowns of a game they most likely haven’t even played. Here’s a quick round-up of their opinions:

LeandroLucky – 2/10

Technical part is amazing! Shadows, light awesome.
But scenario, so so so bad..

Skyarch

Holy god the story was so god awful. But the graphics and gameplay aight. Solid use of destroying all character development from the previous game.

Facelessman93 – 0/10

Story written by a dumbass. Poor writing too. Flat new characters. Repetitive game, boring.

Zdlxjy – 4/10

Disgusting attitude towards the fans of the previous game. Naughty dog ​​wasted the best chance to continue the TLOU IP.

H_E – 3/10

The game play is alright at best, not upset by it. Its just the story that really peeves me. How can you go from Last of Us 1 to this in terms of story?

Demondlzde – 0/10

there is alot of woke trash in the game, alot of gender and identity politics. the game isnt about telling a story of Ellie, its about pushing an agenda to you. 0/10 wouldnt touch it with a stick.

Cactuar – 0/10

I don’t like gorilla
this game betray me
Naughty Dog just buy the media

And on and on it goes, a neverending bowel excavation of people upset by a video game because it doesn’t cater to them. Honestly, this is just sad. To live your life so consumed with hate, over something like a video game. I like to think that gamers are better than this, and I’m often proven right (like the one local gaming forum doing an AMAZING job this week in cleaning house within the Call of Duty fandom).

No matter what the fandom is though, there’s always going to be that small section who exist to tarnish the rest of the group. Maybe they genuinely help if video games make them this upset, maybe they’re just in it for “teh lolz” so that they can score cheap internet point and farm outrage clicks or maybe they’re just saddos. Why am I even giving these people attention?

That’s a good question, and it’s because I believe that having this onslaught of negativity does genuine harm to people who have a legitimate criticism to throw at The Last of Us Part II. There’s a game that is well worth being discussed, once you’ve experienced it fully – and I have no doubt there will be some legitimate criticisms to be discussed long after launch.

Having a bunch of massive babies like this running rampant though? That doesn’t do anyone a favour short of derailing a fantastic conversation over how video games truly are art.

    “there is alot of woke trash in the game, alot of gender and identity politics” – If you don’t like woke, don’t buy it in the first place as it was apparently clear in the trailers that it would be? I don’t know, didn’t watch them or play the previous game so don’t really care*. And, well, if that is true, then the game is also not for me. But also not a 0 given people say the graphics and game play are solid? Say that, and say the story is not to your liking. And give it a fair review score of a 5 for graphics etc and 0 for story making it 5/10.

    Like Mass Effect Andromeda – even with the bugs the game play was for me amazingly fun! But the story made it below par for me. Still gave it a “fair score” based on that and not a 0 for “being woke”. The fact that the company abandoned the game as well made it clear they saw it as well.

    And on the flip side a lot of shills gave it a perfect score. 10/10? What a joke. Also saw some spoilers. What a bunch of hypocrites. Sony will ban and censor games that “demean” wahmon but TLOU2 has one of the cringiest scenes ever!

          There is a backlash, unfairly so I agree. But after seeing the garbage they put in how can it still be a 10/10.Yet other games are pulled and censored because of “naughty”bits. They don’t mention it in any reviews because of the DMCA. But that’s a lie to protect the sales of this agenda piece by Niel.

          Also, it’s Jackson genius.

    It ruined any chance of me getting the second game.

In which fucking parallel universe is this story a good story if all it does is shit on the first games story?

    It’s a hyper mean spirited game, horrible storyline, terrible character tropes. It should have been left alone as it finish perfectly at the end of the first game. This is an all out political message.

      Lets be honest: the metascore reviews started it with their 10/10 scores. Who knows why? Did they get paid, did they fear consequences by Sony or did some bias authors couldnt hold back to push their agenda?

      Well, the people are just striking back now. Call it “review bombs” or whatever you want, but they have brought that upon themselves. Just think what they did to silience all the youtubers or people on twitter.

      A 6/10 or 7/10 that would be ok for the game in my opinion.

    Game review scores shouldn’t matter and shouldn’t be taken seriously. PLAY WHAT YOU LIKE! That being said, this is not the 1st and won’t be the last game being review bombed. To keep review scores legit(for those that actually read value into them), only people that have actually played & completed the game should be allowed to do reviews. For me personally, from what I’ve seen so far, this game is not perfect, but still looks incredible!

    H_E – 3/10 = plausible. Not overly impressed by game, doesn’t like story.

The ladies who got abused by him and others all got welcomed by other clans, and all the major clans have changed their logos to pink variations (some will even use all pink cosmetics in game) as they’re pledging to not allow any further toxic abuse, whether gender based or not. Was pretty cool to see happen.

    The “minority of people” ruining it? I guess the only “crybaby” is the author himself. The story is complete garbage. Joel is gone, we have to play as his murderer and in the end we lose everything while Missy is sailing away with his/her lover. The plot is simply shit and because Naughty dog and Sony knows that they striked every YouTube channel and Twitter account with false claims that talked about the leaks. And how can you complain now about honest reviews of normal people but don’t get suspicious when like 90 Metascorce reviewers give mostly a 10/10 without any critique?

    Btw all the agenda pushing in this game is actually a huge problem. No one I know had a problem with Ellie being lesbian for example but this simple gone to far. It simply is SJW propaganda. If the author of this article, Darryn Bonthuys, or anyone else wants to see transsexuals gay sex or something like this then you don’t have to pay 60 bugs for a game.

There is no such concept as SJW propaganda, and even if it existed, it would be there to educate people like you so they finally stop making a difference. The simple fact that you noticed that they were not straight proves that there is a lot of progress to do still. Stop giving a shit and grow up.

Let’s stop giving a fucking shit about things, it’s fascinating how people need to react to everything. That’s why the author is talking about “babies”, cause it’s impressive to invest so much to hate something so harmless.

            No, because that’s the problem with society. This is why things like DLC and micro transactions are just accepted. Because people became normalised and stopped giving a shit. Now we have unholy sex scenes and we should just not give a shit and accept it because we’re told to buy 10/10 shills. Fuck that. I’m not a sheep.

            Ummm, yes, unholy, broken sexual preferences are against god’s rules and since he is the one that determines what is holy or not, gay is unholy, no ifs, ands or buts about it.

            Sex scenes aren’t mature. Anyone aware of the science and what they do to your brain knows that they’re cheap. Children will be exposed to it and they shouldn’t be. Games are about gameplay. Sex scenes very, VERY rarely serve any purpose at all.

            So essentially, your argument is to say that. It ALWAYS HAPPENS. With no legit proof. There have been plenty of stories of games journalists saying that that is NOT the case. Just look online, and please go to ACTUAL journalist, not youtubers who know that those videos will get them a TON of views.

            To clarify, I am not saying that the games industry is free of any unsavory activities, what I’m saying is that it’s absolute shit to say that reviews have been bought just because the opinions of the reviewer differs to yours.

          “forced inclusivity and agendas” as if the bombardment of heterosexual relationships and anti-lgbt propoganda in films throughout the decades wasn’t forced upon us. Guess it’s only an issue when it’s forced on straight people. Here’s the thing – LGBT people love inclusivity. They love to see themselves being represented by the media, and if that feels forced on you bc it doesn’t fit into the narrative of your life or represent your interests, go suck a dong. There’s PLENTY of straight media for you to gorge yourself on and slobber all over. You don’t have to participate in LGBT media.

            Forcing LGBT values on the general public is pretty much the same as forcing, I don’t know, archeology on the public. Like the fact that the majority of people on the planet don’t care about archeology, is mirrored by the majority of the people on the planet that are hetero. Why don’t we start marveling on ancient fossils on television because it’s oh so awesome because archeologists love it?

            If this was a game based on today’s time with no apocalypse, he’d have no reason to be upset. But it’s at a time when food is scarce and supplements would be outdated. You NEED that to be big. You can’t just lift weights and eat little and gain muscle. So in all fairness, it’s just pushing the narrative of “big strong women.”

            But I mean, to be upset about this is a pretty weak, there have been COUNTLESS other games where you have buff guys running around the apocalypse, so I’m wondering, did that also cause drama.

            Gears of War, Mad Max, Days Gone…..I’m pretty sure that staying cut, eating lean and finding supplement was also impossible in those worlds. Yet that doesn’t seem to bother anyone?

            If we’re going to be that critical, most of the people in the game should be scrawny AF and unfit.

            I 100% agree with you on this. I too dabble in the workout world. My gripe is that the OP is using this as a reason to bash the game, when this is done SO consistently in gaming. Gears of War Marines have bodybuilders biceps yet live in a post apocalyptic world, Mad Max, SAME story, Rage 1 and Rage 2 and many more where the lead character or any other character is BUFF AF, yet that does little to spoil the experience, so why now?

Nothing the woman they model her after obviously uses. Preposterously large men wouldn’t even be a thing, nothing defined anyways. They would all have fat on them. Low body fat in that environment seems unlikely, especially for a woman. I don’t care that something like that exists in a game, I do care that the world is now completely broken to support an unrealistic character.

            It would be just as retarded to have Gears of War meat heads walking around. There’s a limit as to what your biology will let you do, more so with environmental constraints.

            There’s a reason they had to find a very talented athlete to base her build on. An athlete dedicated to that body, not an OUNCE of what Abbey is actually capable of.

          They’re beholden to most major publishers for ad revenue. The sheer scale of new reviewers is off the charts on Meta Critic (who has been caught screwing with the numbers).

          If you can’t read between the lines, that’s a you problem. I’ve indulged your global retardation long enough, enjoy the mute.

            If you think this was happening, don’t you think that it would have been outsed by now. How popular and revered would that specific journalist be?

            I know for a fact that there are some unsavoury practices in the industry (as there are in most), but until I read/see actually proof of paid reviews. Multiple journalists have stated that it simply doesn’t happen. Maybe just maybe we must try and view the review scores as one person’s rating of a game, as if they were any person. This baseless narrative is weak.

            Also, just because the reviewer give a game a score that you do not agree with, doesn’t make them biased, Means that their opinion is different to yours…

          Many of the user reviews ARE from people that hid spoilers and are now outraged by it. He acts like it’s just people that wanted to hate the game no matter what just to be different. I LOVED the first game. FANS loved the first game. Critics loved the first game. But now, critics seem to be the only ones that LOVE this sequel. All-around the sequel is far from the first. It’s a 7 at best and that is simply because of the graphics and slightly improved gameplay. But it’s too long, too much filler, has plenty of boring parts in and the best storytelling relies on Joel flashbacks. When your story is that crappy that you have to rely on Joel FLASHBACKS to keep interest, you know the game doesn’t deserve a PERFECT score. It’s a polished turd

        And the cancellation numbers will be HUGE also! But we won’t hear about that somehow…those numbers will be hidden. Hey, if you’re odd enough to love this sequel, more power to you…but don’t act like you loved the first game and its story because the sequel doesn’t come close to the original and actively sh*ts on it. They even made the character dumber in time from the first game…the side characters aren’t even as good as the first game’s either. Sam and Henry in ONE hour of gameplay is better than any side character in the sequel. I considered the first game to be my all-time favorite game. I bought merch of all kinds and was pumped about the sequel. Then the leaks came out and I was glad to see them and cancel. Then actual gameplay came out and I saw much of the game and story and am already sick of watching it halfway in. I don’t need to watch the rest either since it’s filler and the ending doesn’t even complete the cycle of revenge like Drunkmann claims the game is about. When the sequel’s story is bad enough to make you consider trying to forget the first game, you know they messed up.

      Truth is, the first isn’t that great. The story is a B movie. The gameplay is dated and doesn’t stand up to time nor games of its time and genre. The sequel, without the help of far more talented workers, couldn’t hold a candle to the few decent things the first one did. Like normal feeling characters you can relate to.

          I actually don’t understand what you mean? The critics have had review copies for a while now so they have made their mind up and given it the score they deserve, whether you agree on the score or not is up to you. Whether its a 95 or 78, it is what it is. However, how is it that the mere HOURS after the game has been made available to the public, the game was rated 0 by users. The game is supposed to be 23 hours long. So are you telling me that players got through a 24hr game in 2/3 hours and rated it fairly. Come on man….

          Also let’s be real, Doom Eternal came out a couple of months ago and has less than 10k reviews, TLOU2 was out for a day and had 20k + reviews…

    Imagine thinking that hype/pre-order sales translates into a game actually being amazing.

    It’s the carry over from what the first game was, anyone that has now played the second should know that it’s garbage.

    The story is extremely weak, the political agenda pushing is disgustingly transparent, and honestly just all around it isn’t that great of a game.

    I get that you have an opinion on the game, but this entire post is part of what’s wrong with media in general, this idea that “if you don’t agree with me its because you’re all babies”…

    No dude, when THAT many people review bomb a game like this, it’s because they have legitimate reasons for it that you just want to ignore because god forbid you accept the truth about forced diversity ruining the quality of story telling.

    This is basically the reverse situation of the whole Rotten Tomatoes incident with Dave Chappelles Netflix special, where the critics straight up LIED and gave it a 0, while actual users that watched the whole thing gave it a 9-10/10. The critics that are giving this game 90+ are flat out lying, because there’s no way an objective person within their right mind can give such an embarrassingly weak story and clear forced diversity, such a high score.

    Thankfully we have a TRUE GOTY contender coming out soon in the form of Ghost of Tsushima, a game which will absolutely shit all over TLOU2 and quickly remind people what a great game actually is.

    The way you’ve written this and basically slandered people is an embarrassment and shows a gigantic amount of insecurity in you as a writer, so I for one won’t be coming back to this shit.

    The storyline was absolute garbage and the author knows it. He just has to continue to push the SJW narrative. We should have known. The leaks had 70% of Naughty Fog leaving over this crap. This game completely ignores everything the first game set up. You have to play as Joel’s killer? WTF? That could have been salvaged if it set Ellie on a rampage but she lets the killer go at the end? WTF? You have to ask yourself after finding out the disaster of a character that Abby is, it’s not wonder that he/she wasn’t mentioned in the trailers. Even Sony knew, once they saw the finished product, that this was not going to be good. They pushed it back a month because of the coronavirus. The virus wasn’t going away in a month. Naughty Dog set out to push a DJW narrative instead of just telling a quality story. It’s about time that The entertainment industry follow the saying, “If you go woke, you go broke!”

    After the leaks, there wasn’t a chance in a hell I was going to buy this game (especially at launch). I was kind of holding out for most of it being false, but after spending the last couple of hours watching xQcOWs complete stream of the game (an extravaganza live stream on twitch of just over 16 hours). I have to say, I’m glad I didn’t spend money on it.

    This is definitely this generation’s Mass Effect 3 – a promising and at times stunningly beautiful sequel that suffered at the hands of its creators (and quite frankly became a victim of the extreme huffing of farts in the story writer’s room). I won’t spoil it for any one, but I can definitely understand the 1s & 0s on metacritic.

    Good luck to those of you, who will be buying it. I hope you enjoy it. I’m just glad I saved R1000. (no spoilers underneath, just the link to xQc’s stream.

    No, it’s just that bad. Subjected myself to it and it learned absolutely nothing from the first while relying on visuals to feel like a good game. The horrendously bad characters and plot are turd sprinkles on this dated game.

    Darryn Bonthuys, if people don’t like the story and say so, why do you feel that makes them babies? To write and publish something belittling the opinions of others seems arrogant. You know what actually prevents “fantastic conversations” … name calling, rather than engaging others in respectful discussion. I’m certain some of these reviews are in bad faith, but your prejudice towards these people’s opinions shows just as much bad faith.

      Yeah, I have to agree with you on this point. The tone of the article basically set the tone for the comments that followed. Fantastic conversations could have been had, but that’s all gone now, because the article came out mocking gamers & fans, and THUS the vitriol that followed flowed freely. Not really sure what Darryn was thinking.

      I suppose there’s a lesson to be learnt here, but will there be a certain level of maturity to accept and learn from it? Or will comments be deleted?

    Of course it could be because the story sucks and the gameplay isn’t much better than the first. Or perhaps it’s the unnecessary HOURS of filler content in the game that serves no real purpose to the trash story. But nope, “OHHH, BABIES REVIEW BOMBING IT.” Doesn’t that say anything about the game? It’s not good. It’s not HORRIBLE, but it’s really not good. It in no way is a legit 10/10. 10/10 is the first game. This sequel nowhere near comes close to that game and never will. If the critics would have fairly scored this game as maybe a 7 or an 8, I’d have believed it, but it seems awfully fishy how apparently this game is perfect to them. I trust actual gamers over “critics”

    Oh dear..if people’s opinion differ to yours, they’re babies. Many of these reviewers having read different reviews point out elements you could only otherwise know by watching a full play through on YouTube, so it’s not all review bombing as much as that might help someone’s conscience. The game if you play it; is genuinely bad, forget the unrealistic, unnatural and immersion breaking social justice elements (those phrases pertaining to different elements, not all), forget the leaks, most of which are correct; bar 4chan. Then yes, the uncompelling, unmemorable characters, the cheap soap opera story, the dated linear gameplay and non existent puzzles are glaring issues. The visuals, sound effects and animations are great but can’t save it from the above. Add the agenda addled issues back into the mix and you have a somewhat hard to take serious game, that’s mostly devoid of what the original offered. IGN, Polygon, VG24/7 and the usual suspects have only after this game rendered themselves more a big joke, with no credibility. But there were many red flags leading up to release. They should’ve kept Amy Hennig and let her alone write the story and characters, she made one of the best games ever (Legacy of Kain series) instead they pushed her out, dopey move. How many tens of thousands cancelled or abstained from pre ordering I wonder.

    At the first sign of negative reviews. Even back a few months ago when the leaks were coming out, these so called “media critics” try to hide this game’s failure behind a simple minded : hurr durr we don’t like lesbians and trans in our games.
    Sadly, this isn’t the problem with The Last of Us 2. And it wasn’t even a problem in The Last of Us. The character Bill from the first game was confirmed gay, Ellie had a whole DLC revealing her to have lesbian tendencies as a kid. . . So why this outrage with *this* game?

    Because it was done, and written badly. A franchise that was focused on the relationship between two characters, Joel and Ellie. Gets suddenly replaced by Dina (????) and Abby (????) characters whom we have no reason to care for. It’s pretty apparent Dina has so little significance to the story.
    Ellie and Dina’s journey is so uninteresting it makes the hours subsequent to Joel’s death utterly boring. Because once again we have no reason to care for their dialogue, or their romance. They’re just lesbians.
    The game also doesn’t bother to hide it’s efforts at trying to make Abby a relatable and “likeable” character. Simultaneously killing Joel in the most pathetic of ways and revealing her to be the one that advocated for Ellie to give her life in the first game. And in my opinion this is the most senseless thing this game has tried to do. For absolutely no one can begin to appreciate this character. (And I won’t even begin to talk about where Abby comes from or the origins of her character. Or even the logistics behind a trans woman in the apocalypse). So once again, she is redundantly “that trans character”, that is forcefully shoved down this, now torn appart plot.

    Continuing :
    Plenty, and I mean plenty of people have already talked about the complete DECIMATION of Joel’s character in this game. I doubt I need to say anything about it. From how dumb he’s become to the disrespect of the first game. It was truly sad.
    What we get instead is a basic “revenge” arc that starts in the first 2 hours of the game and leaves the players with a feeling of “I don’t want to play anymore”. And what’s the point? The amazing thing about this game and the reason why fans waited so long for this second title was the relationship between Ellie and Joel. The ending of the first game captivated me for years. The drama it leaf to, the suspense of the continuity of that relationship. The growth of Ellie as a character and how Joel would face it . . . in this game we get none of it.

    Finally If I had to summarize this in one word : Empty. Not only because it left me empty inside for a few hours. But because it is just that. Empty. A beautiful and well designed game with intricate levels and a worthy upgrade of the first game that is Completely Empty. After I was done watching the whole thing I couldn’t help but think : So much waster potential, and for what? . . .

    I now hope my opinion reaches other former fans of this franchise.

      Did you finish? Ellie had a great arc, and arguably Abby had an even better one. I also thought this was a simple revenge story initially and was a bit upset, but going through with it and finishing made me realise everything, every detail was there for a reason. Even Abby’s massive biceps.

      To each his own if you didn’t like it, but everyone here sounds very very sour that the story went in a different direction than what you would have wanted. I personally loved the game. Granted the first one was better, but then again, how on earth do you top that?

    I’m not sure how reviewers are defending the story, it’s actually garbage. The gameplay is more or less the same with TLOU1, kudos to them adding more choice around how difficult you want the experience to be. But to defend that story? I guess you gotta maintain a good relationship with naughty dog for those nice dollars.

    I don’t have a stake in this as I have never played the first one and don’t see myself playing the second either.
    That being said the amount of weight the reactions are being given are IMO a little over the top. I got a very easy policy when it comes to games, series and movies.

    1. Don’t pre order/book anything, you can wait a few days avoiding spoilers then decide after some reviews. Make sure its from places YOU trust
    2. If it seems like you wont enjoy it then don’t consume that media, easy as that.
    3. Don’t be so invested that its the be all and end all, its only entertainment, treat it that way.
    4. There WILL be something else out there for you to consume, just wait for that

    MINOR SPOILERS ALERT

    I’m a huge fan of the original game. I bought a PS3 just to play that game, and I later upgraded to a PS4 and the remastered version. Its box art has been my desktop background for years. I just beat the sequel yesterday and I find most of the hate unwarranted and ridiculous.

    Sure, I would’ve written the plot a little bit different myself, but it wasn’t a bad story. Any game that can pull at the heartstrings and make you feel strong emotions is a good game. My only complaint about the plot is how soon they killed off you know who, but you know that they were going to die eventually. I would’ve done that much later in this game or even in a third game. I also would’ve liked a multiplayer feature.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the improvements to existing gameplay mechanics and the additions of a few new ones. The optional objectives and collectibles added some interesting lore and items to be found and that had me searching every corner of each area. The new infected enemies and that monstrosity of a boss were some terrifyingly great additions to the game. I also liked that they went more in-depth to the factions in this game than the previous.

    As much as I hated Abby for what she did, playing from the antagonists perspective was a neat storytelling technique that attempted to humanize a deplorable character and make you realize that her and Ellie were similar. They both relentlessly sought revenge at the expense of those who crossed them and even their friends. The story also showed that although the various factions had some different ideals and perspectives, they had similar methods operating in a morally grey area.

    As far as video games go, this was a great story even if I would have told it a bit differently.

    I had a thought last night as I got up around 3 to feed the cat and drain the snake. I thought about life, love, this game and a thousand other angst ridden things people can imagine during this pay cut, whiskey fueled, pandemic.

    Back in the Attitude era John Cena became the Doctor of Thuganomics. A change that saved his career. People loved him, he was popular, he was entertaining and funny. Then things changed again. The PG era started and Cena realized he couldn’t make naughty jokes anymore because young kids started watching him. He changed into the version The Rock coined as Fruity Pebbles. He started to get ridiculed by some audiences and became probably the most divisive wrestler ever because he couldn’t please everyone.

    Now we have TLOU2. The first one was a game that everyone remembers fondly. Great story, addictive gameplay, gorgeous graphics(but not by PC standards amirite?) So obviously everyone wanted a sequel and waiting 7 years is a long, long time. So 2020 arrives and everything is a mess. Then the leaks appear and people aren’t happy. The game launches to resounding 10/10s but is review bombed on launch day making it the most divisive game this year.

    The biggest issue it seems is the story and that there seems to be an agenda. Whether that’s true or not doesn’t matter. The game has already broken sales records because a lot of people didn’t play the first one and even more didn’t even bother with the politics of the sequel.

    Is it okay to be upset? Yes it is. I for one am. This game is a tough sell for me despite being brilliant apparently. The sequel didn’t go the way I planned at all because ND thought it best to have the story one way and it upset a lot of people. But that’s how it goes, after 7 years of waiting ND wouldn’t be able to please everyone. (I’d like to elaborate on this point but spoilers!) Just like the last three SW movies.

    But don’t let it turn you into a vile human being. Don’t send death threats, don’t resort to name calling. Just calm down and have a beer and I’ll tell you why.

    I never liked the new John Cena. So whenever there was a PPV I usually endured his matches and because he only wrestled once a night I got to enjoy the rest of the PPV. Same goes with gaming. Sure TLOU2 may not be your cup of tea because it decided try and be bold and up the ante. Yet there are so many games out there and new ones coming out soon like Ghost of Tsushima.

    So don’t let this one game turn you into a 2020. Play something that will make you happy.

I could see someone giving it a 6 or a 5 or an 8 or a 9 and being the user score is just under a 6 I wouldnt say its been “bombed”, Id say its just under where it rightfully should be. I loved a lot of things about the game but honestly the gameplay and gun fighting is mediocre at best compared to other games this generation and the story was just terrible. I hated it. I had to literally force myself to finish playing the game. I didn’t read or look into the game at all before I played it intentionally so I could form my own opinion and not be swayed by other people or have the game spoiled for me and I found myself agreeing with many things people were complaining about after I completed it and started searching online. All these major online gaming sites giving this game 100’s is a complete joke also yet I haven’t seen a single article written about that though. Odd how users always get shamed for “review bombing” but no one is talking about the the exact opposite from critics. How could you look us in the eye and say this game is a 100? Seriously? The game is PERFECT? Not a single thing wrong with it? Nothing that could be improved upon? A 100? Really? GTFO
