I'm not actively avoiding anything :rofl:

I haven't skipped a chest I could get to yet. I'm being very thorough every time I get to a new area.

I haven't skipped gear upgrades at all - I'm saying different gear which I've tried all that I've found and tinkered with doesn't feel impactfully different.

I'm not to the point of the story I can meaningfully fast travel, as we've determined.

And I never said getting around was hard, but its cumbersome.
iirc i stacked the percentage upgrades and did a build around cooldowns of special moves

i know people say this about all zombie stories, but tlou isnt really a zombie story

im sure you think its a technicality and i guess technically it is - but its a fungus and the aesthetic of the infected feels distinctly different from other zombie stories (imho)

also, its very much moreso about the relationship between the characters

Im sure none of that is new reasoning to you, but fuck - with a PS5 and no experience with the title I would be hardpressed to say give this remake a try when it releases

Need to get on Sifu at some point

Kena is cute and ive been playing with my daughter off and on since release, but it hasn't really hooked me

Yeah, still haven't played either of them yet, just adding them to the list of ones to try out on the console.

i actually remember having this same first impression, but after a few hours with the game i found the groove with it as positioned



I don't recall ever thinking that the camera was an issue. The game gives you indicators if something is about to smack you from off-screen. Pulling back the camera enough to make a big difference there would have had a detrimental effect on the whole visual impact and presentation.

that impression is something that grew on me to the point where it became just another frustration in a stew of frustations by the end of the game. i've rarely had an opinion as negative impacted by a replay as i have by god of war.

the "visual impact and presentation" wasn't a good thing though. their commitment to that camera system came at the impact of solid game design and offered almost nothing up in return.

The camera didn't bother me too much. I got in the habit of strafing around the perimeter of arenas so that I could see enemies spawn

View attachment 245469

it's why i bought the game in the first place on pc, i wanted to see what the endgame content was like because @Sphygmo had no interest in it. that was the right move, it was awful bloat of the worst kind. actively detrimental to the rest of the game. and the story just becomes worse and worse as you play more of it because of how boring and repetitive and obnoxious it is.
