The Last of Us

I bought The Last of Us on PS3 last weekend. I have been watching The Walking Dead (1-4) on DVD with two of my kids and really enjoying this ... a guy at my work mentioned The Last of Us, as a (very broadly) similarly themed video game, so I got a copy.

We are about 3 hours of play in ... I absolutely love it. The atmosphere of the game is superb. It's eerie and constantly rewarding, with each new scene. I like the fact that a lot of the game is about stealthing your way around, as opposed to going in to a fight with all guns blazing. This stealth aspect appeals to me.

I was wondering if anyone else playing? Also, anyone playing on PS4 .. wondering about the game play and rendering differential from PS3 to PS4.

Cheers ...

I've heard this is a very good game. It's one of the few console games which I'm sad never made the jump to PC. I'm part of the PC Master Race, so I guess I'll never play it. I'm not buying a crappy console for one game. ;P

Also, Season 5 of The Walking Dead wrapped up a month or so ago. Check it out online, it was probably my favorite season thus far.

I agree .. it would be pretty crazy to buy a console for one game.

I will wait until Season 5 is on DVD and get it then. I am little bit old skool and like to "own" things. we are nearly at the end of Season 3 at the moment, so still plenty to crunch through.

Cheers ...

Oh I hear you, I run a huge Blu-Ray collection. I don't go to theaters anymore, I wait until the movies come out on Blu-Ray and buy them then.

I've just been a Walking Dead fan forever, including the comics. I have to see them as soon as they come out. ;P

I played it on PS3 and will probably have some time to play it on PS4 when my wife goes to NYC in a couple weeks or if I finish The Evil Within (recommend, but definitely not something to play with the kiddies...very gory, but stealth type game with very little help. i.e. Tough to find shotgun shells just laying around.)

I can imagine that the game play and rendering differential from PS3 to PS4 would by much smoother.

Cool. I will check out The Evil Within. My youngest two kids (10 and 12) are really into The Walking Dead, so they have become accustomed to a little gore ... but maybe you are right ... I might sample first, to see.

I can see my getting a PS4 off the back of wanting to see TLOU on there. Also, the Star Wars Battlefront due out later this year ... oh my goodness ...

It looks much better on the PS4 (not like it looked like crap on the PS3), plus it comes with all of the additional content that came out later on the PS3. I'd suggest playing it on the hardest difficulty, it takes the game to a whole other level, LOVED it.

Basically aside from the usual with enemies being stronger and doing much more damage, you no longer have the feature where you can "see" where enemies are through objects, no HUD so you have no idea how much life you have, bullets, etc. Plus finding items is now virtually impossible. Really puts you on edge and is much more realistic.
