No point? You have points now? That’s a great accomplishment.
Guess I’ll have to make another rebuttals post against this non Sense.
It released during the right time culturally. At the time zombie film and media was popular and repetitive and the walking dead was already popular while airing. It was a unique take on “Zombies” at the time with gameplay which in fun but repetitive buy different enough from past zombie games to stand out. The stealth specifically.
Not every character needs to be integral to the entire message of whatever they are in. Dina serves as a likable companion to Ellie in the first couple of chapters. Their banter is fun which brings levity as your playing the game with some callbacks to the first one. Dina at the end of the game kinda served as the Ultimatum. What is Ellie willing to do to get revenge ans what is she willing to possible loose in the process. When she was yes filled with Eva win certain moments she was still that fun loving snarky girl. Dina, JJ, and Jesse to some extent brought that side out to show that that Ellie still exist.
Note: this gonna be out of order, with them cropped I can remember which point was written first.
This one could vary well be a joke for the most part. The gun sway is realistic because nobody is a trained soldier so they wouldn’t have cod type aiming and let’s pretend the first game didn’t have it. That’s like me blaming the gameplay in assassins creed for me being shitty at stealth. The combat mechanics were great and a fluid doge button was a great improvement that much better the whatever they tried to give us in Uncharted 4. This part may stand out to me more due to mean being a martial art fanatic but Abby’s fighting style is so fucking satisfying. Seeing her roundhouse kick a runner is the face was badass in every way. I always feel iffy when people in post apocalyptic media don’t prep with hand to hand combat training because not only are “Zombies” a threat but the humans are arguably more dangerous a cruel than the monsters that inhabit the world.
How is anyone Qualified for anything? Maybe he graduated early but even the why does that matter? I have to put together and make due with what you can when the entire world is a fuckinh war zone. I doubt factions are like “hey I know the world has been shit for a while but can I see propped credentials” that’s ridiculous Seth.
The Ellie part was intentional may guy. That weren’t trying the paint him or the situation as black or white when it’s clearly morally in the grey area. Everyone ans everything that happens isn’t “good or bad”.
Id you played the first game thinking Joel was a Saint or the “hero” of the game then maybe you played a completely different game because that man is a a monster because almost everyone is a monster in some way. Joel has been hinted to do some fucked yo things that would fall in the grey area. It a fight for survivals. The needs of the many is what was going through that mans head. Does that make it right? No but it definitely doesn’t make him 100% wrong.
Hate? Your an the vocal minority seem to only be the person who’s hates Abby. It’s hinted from the beginning that a Morally grey man who has no doubt did some fucked up shit possibly did something to someone she loves causing her to get revenge. You seem Abby in her chapters not at ease simply because she acted to rash. He dad was no better or worse than Joel or that guy who shit his brother i himself in the first game. If you wanted Abby to die then idk what his say. If anything I like many were curious to see why she did what she did. At first your like “hey this dude isn’t a saint? Why should I I care that Joel killed him” and then yo realize what you have been doing as Joel and even Ellie.
The Moral of the Game isn’t just “Revenge is bad” is that’s There’s more nuance to everything and it’s not a movie where everything is completely black or white. We can’t know everything about if another person or why they did what they did but when can choose to try to understand where they came from instead of brushing it off. I had to make the realization this year not long before the game came out with something personal that happened in my life. It doesn’t excuse how how person acts but it does show you that not everyone or thing is perfect. If you hang on blind and newly formed hatred then your only going on a downhill spiral. And that’s what Neil was trying to say.
To give an example I will be using the experience above while obviously leaving out name. There was this girl(woman now, she around my age so 18) who I was kinda close with. She liked comics, was a huge Spider-Man fan that aside from he negative traits she had a lot of Gabri moments. There was a problem though and it’s that at times she was overly touchy at times an entitled at times but overall was a decent person until she started saying some things. She would constantly say homophobic slurs without remorse(knowing most of her friend were lgbtq) and whenever she would get in an argument or just a minor disagreement with me she would result to using slurs and claiming that(exact quotes here)
“What should you care that I call you a F*g, you get called that everyday”, “What you go through is nowhere near as bad as what I went though” and more things. This went on for 3 years(granted its kinda my fault for even giving her 3 years worth of second chances...) she then preceded to refer to me out of my pronouns(on purpose) and much more we cut things off drama happened ect...ect. We were going at back and forward and I even got “revenge by saying some things” they were not slurs but let’s say they were definitely nothing I should have said as insults to someone. I was at a high, after saying that shit I’ve never felt so happy but it only lasted for like two seconds. After that it just felt weird. Like saying that didn’t take back what happened and only made the situation worse and instead of stop the back in forward(kinda like the cycle of violence ins a certain video game) I just retaliated. I later found out that
1: she was Assaulted countless times for many years( the touchy-ness and her feeling entitled and feeling as if Everything is never her fault)
2: She had a trans family member whom she was having issue with just trying to adapt(her family is hard core religious Christians)
3: She been slut shamed for years just because of what happened(number 1) and just regular teenage experiences.
Maybe I’m not conveying it the best I can but 99% of what she said made sense to some extent. Does that mean she was right in what she did? Nope. Does that mean they what I said gets a free pass because of what she said and did to me? Nope. But did me realizing what happened, emphasizing with her while stilling trying holding her accounted for her actions(not the assault obviously) change anything? Hell no. But it did stop the cycle of hatred between us a let us both grow as people. We aren’t friends and frankly I still don’t like her but I understand that she wasn’t just evil tu be evil and that not everything is just Black or white.
Last of us review
I might not finish the critique as of now, my hand hurt. All this dam typing.
Sorry for nah grammar mistakes.
I truly think Seth was one of those who sent death threats to the cast😂 “OH a Character Changes realistically over the 5 years from last game” Faze look at how Me, even you acted a couple of years back on this wiki ans say we are the same people, I just dare you.🤷🏽♀️
Half of what I just just read(mainly the first half) was the most half asses reasoning I’ve ever heard. I’m not even a big fan of the game but even I know when nitpicking and teenage angst is on high affect. Currently eating. I’ll make a proper rebuttal when I’m done.
If the only message you got out of the game was “revenge is bad” they you completely missed a great majority of the game.
Or if it’s makes little to no sense...
Faze still got his “big boy” hey I hate TLOU2 because...can I fit in, pants on. I love angsty teens 😂
WitchBlade and one of the Aphrodite Numbered Cyborgs.
The original poster is probably confused as hell right now😂
Late-mid 2010’s bullies wedge kinda fun. They couldn’t cyber bully me since teachers follow them on social media. Rarely physically dont anything because they are cowards. Middle school bullies were weird especially one of mine. For me it was bizzare.
I think I’ve see a lot of Different martial arts in the trailer and none of them were actual Jiujitsu 😂
It looks creepy kinda like that scene at the end of AC 2 where what her face is talking to the reader and the main character at the same time. As in Emma was talking to Us the reader and Bobby when it starts to zoom on her face.
That Emma Frost panel freaked me the fuck out.
Don’t give them ideas.
You, you get out.
They were but I feel the whole discovered thing could just be played off as a government secret tightly held. I mean the only incidents of Them on earth were in ancient times(none of this humans are alive anymore), AVP(only one survivor), and AVP2 which I can’t remember that’s much(good thing) but didn’t they nuke the place?
