    I'd ask way more than 20$ in damages if had to "play" this thing.

    I gave ND a lot of shit for the silly wokeness and them going after some YT channels that i really like. But still, bought a used copy to check it out. it's a very atmospheric game with great art/graphics. I did eventually stop playing because i just got tired of the combat. The woke shit isn't that bad as far as i played (3-4h). If you don't mind the tedious combat i'd check it out. I might actually pick it up again and try it on the PS5 i have now, must look/play great in 60 FPS..

    Buy a used copy from someone who bought it cheap would be my advice. Don't support Naughty Dog.

    Why not, if you just said that the game isn't as bad and woke as the haters claim? What is the reason not to give them money if you got some enjoyment from their game?

    They went after a lot of great youtube channels at release, managed to (falsely) strike these channels to hurt them economically and possibly taking them down entirely (this can happen if they already have an ongoing strike dispute i believe). People who didn't like the game's politics/wokeness.

    Druckmann also said in an interview that the game does have a political agenda. i really don't want politics in my games.

    That doesn't mean the game has zero qualities, it does have some good stuff and for me (graphical artist) it was worth checking out by getting a used copy to not support them. ND have incredible artists, probably the best in the industry together with R* (another company i refuse to support nowadays).

    It's definitely as bad and woke as everyone claims. This user is either retarded, a shill, or completely desensitized to wokeism

    In summary, the gameplay has improved over the first one. The visuals are great on a technical level. But the story and narrative are a complete failure. The game fundamentally misunderstands the point of the original game (The father/daughter bond between Joel and Ellie) and it's all about the circle of violence and revenge, all in happy meal format. The best scenes in this regards are the flashbacks to the original game, with says much.

    Since you can't read, i didn't play the entire game, i played 3-4h, and in that time, no it's not woke to the degree that it took away from the experience. One thing i remember is that there was one remark that a person was possibly "a racist" (can't remember the exact wording). As i said, i refuse to support the game because its indeed woke and political. Druckmann even said it has an agenda in an interview. I'm not sure if the politics is 5% or 50% of the game, unless i play it from start to finish it's kind of hard to comment on that, if it's 5% it's "playable" to me but not something i would support. I do know how it ends for a certain character, and imo that was a pretty shit thing to do, and to me it seems like the typical hateful agenda you'd expect from a leftist retard like Druckmann.

    One thing i do not agree with (i've heard it a few times) is that the gameplay is better. How? The combat is to 99% the same, kind of shit to be honest. What other aspects of the gameplay is "better"?

    Then stop trying to say it's not as woke as people say it is. If you don't know then shut the fuck up.
    Props for that, but you still said something retarded and needed to be called out on it.

    Imagine giving a shit about woke bullshit in video games. If It's western AAA it will have pandering, just ignore it and see if the actual game is any good or take the indie pill


    This game is dogshit tho

    What retarded thing did i say? Do you mean
    "The woke shit isn't that bad as far as i played (3-4h)."
    Maybe, just maybe, that means "The woke shit isn't that bad as far as i played (3-4h)" and not more than that?

    It's in all big media ("gotta get that ESG score up for the investors!") so unless someone plays 100% small indie titles you will have pandering to some degree, it's all about how much of it is, and if it's in the key elements or just in some side stuff... here it does seem to be in too many key things, i don't know exactly how tainted that is though.

    Haven't read this thread yet, so I don't know if it's come up, but recently Sonyfags on Twitter have been trying to turn this game into a Death Stranding-esque "misunderstood cult classic". Their evidence of this is "woah animation so purty!! gud grafix!!" Sonyfags truly are the lowest form of organic matter

    If that's what they're doing then it's fucking dumb. The animations, the visuals and all that are the easiest things to evaluate even if that also require some experience and well, taste. Of course it's easier than leaning on "violence is bad mkay" or even muh tribalism. Or Krishna forbid, to tell how important some woke messages in it and that's why it's so invaluable piece of mass cult.

    Y'know I nearly forgot I posted here until you guys showed up in my alerts while I was lubing up to deliver another 40 pages of... that thing I do. I know I could always, y'know, unwatch threads, but I don't actually post in a lot of places so it's not usually a huge deal. It's not a big deal here either, I actually have an update for you on my friend's experience playing the game. (The second game, specifically - when I originally posted, he was playing through the first. He's since finished the second.)

    For context, this friend is the exact kind of woke weenie the pandering in this game would appeal to. He's been having a "crisis of identity" lately, he speaks like a goddamn twitter post (take a shot for every "yikes," "wholesome," "content warning" and "(incoherent keyboard smashing)" and you'll be dead by the eleventh message) and he's under this strange impression that pretending to be happy to the point where it's genuinely disturbing will cure his untreated depression. Nothing against him as a person, guy's got problems and when he isn't caught up in dumb political fads he has decent taste in RPGs. Anyway, you get the fucking point, by all metrics he should have loved this game.

    Except he didn't - he fucking hated it. In fact, I'm not sure I've seen him hate anything more than this game, aside from maybe Skyrim. And even then, I'm not sure Skyrim stole 50 bucks from him.
    TL;DR proof that a game can have all the diversity in the world and still suck wang

    Don't cult classics need to linger for years or decades, with a small but powerful fandom, before they're recognized as such? Don't they have to also be really good, but ultimately unappreciated by the masses until like 30 years later?
