    AND they fired one of the most respected female developers in the industry, trashed her work and still have the gall to parrot they are the champions of women.

    You'd have to be a special kind of retard to actually believe them.

    Big fungus monster is only one encounter where you have to kill it. Otherwise you can sneak past it.

    In the area where you can sneak past it is probably the most tense section of the game. You are alone in a water-flooded basement, and you have to activate a loud generator to open a keypad locked door. You can dispatch some of the infected before hand, but I think some will spawn in when you activate the generator. But what makes this area so tense besides the creepy environment is that you meet a new type of infected. The stalker I think they are called, and well, they actually stalk you. When other infected spots you they scream and attack. These dudes move around you and tries to avoid your line of sight. So when you are casually looting stuff, you might notice shadows flickering, and you might notice something in the corner of your eye thinking it's nothing, but it's the infected stalking you waiting for a moment to pounce. Very tense and paranoid moment, especially after you realize that something is actually hunting you watching your every move.

    It's a while since I played it, but you certainly kill more than a few dozen people (assuming you don't sneak past them). You're right about the size of the set pieces encounters though.

    Spiderman had a really low number of pre-orders if vgchartz is right.
    https://www.vgchartz.com/preorders/43345/USA/
    RDR2 -- which released on multiple platforms -- nearly had as many pre-orders on PS4 despite not releasing for another 2 months.

    Why wouldn't they compare it to say... Uncharted 4? You know, the game actually made by the same developers?
    Going to take a guess as to why.

    vgchartz has literally never been right.
    RDR2 had >17m preorders total. I'd wager the vast majority was on PS4 since xbox one isnt a very popular platform.

    Spiderman was a surprisingly decent game, before release everybody thought it was just going to be another shitty movie game- hence terrible pre-orders.

    Yes the public's desire for mindless collectathons can not be sated.

    Still hope naughty dog go bankrupt because of their shitty behaviour but bar for new games is incredibly low.

    Spiderman iirc outsold every PS4 exclusive. It's the sales benchmark.

    Sure looks purty. Impressive animations from the girl char. The way she moves and interacts within the game is top notch. Enviroments look all greyish tho, reminds me of first Gears of War.

    I say, this piece of shit is truly a thing of beauty. Look at the elegant light brown color, and how it catches the light. Take in the smell that reminds you of simpler times when the common man had to farm the dirt. Look at the delicate upturn on the final tail.

    Truly this turd is the pinnacle of achievement!

    I once wondered what would a game look like if a developer takes the effort to make killing look more dirty and cruel, to approximate better what it is IRL. Now I know. It's School Shooting Simulator 2020.

    I wonder how the artists and animators feel about making those scenes. They're probably numb by now.

    Just imagine the shitstorm if a game with such gruesome naturalistic portrayal of violence was being developed by anyone outside the woke crowd. They would have been crucified by the mainstream outlets.

    I love how now they actually specify ANTI-BLACK racism.

    Because they don't care about any other type.

    Nor should they. I'd be more worried about the people setting fire to the outlets I want to sell my game through as well.

    This didn't affect Joel's reasoning because in the context of the game all he knew and the choice he was presented with was "girl or the cure for mankind".
