    Yeah that was right in the center of town wasn't it, can't believe all those people just watched Joel get executed, they should all hang. I'm pretty sure one of them shouted for popcorn, THE GALL!

    "It is the best selling game of all time. Neil is laughing at all of you on a pile of money"

    Keep telling yourself that Phipps you jackass. Also, if the game is so good then why is Neil getting angry and defensive on Twitter. I would link them but the cuck blocked me weeks ago.

    Regardless of the quality, the sales argument is poor. As plebby as modern audiences are Fallout 4's huge financial success I guarantee is due to the massive hype weight the franchise held prior to release rather than ANYTHING to do with game itself.

    Whether arguing if the game is good or poor, never fall back on sales or reviews. Always rely on your own arguments else you reveal yourself as shallow

    Fallout 4 and Skyrim are the best selling Fallout and Elder Scrolls games. Does that make them good? Hell no! One can argue that the two are the most swallow games of their franchise. Normies will buy and consume anything if it is popular. TLoU2 is no different. Not only that but the sales numbers are high because we are in the middle of a pandemic and people are looking to pass the time. Why do you think Animal Crossing and Doom Enteral did so well?

    Yeah. Whilst I don't think Tlou 2 was a bad sequel (nor do I think it was particularly remarkable as a story at all since zombies are a cultural relic) it would have sold like hot cakes literally regardless. The first was heralded falsely as the second coming of vidya jesus

  7. I don't think videogames should be videogames anymore. I think that society is lame and repressed. It makes crap art to cope with this.

    Most people live somewhere else because their life sucks. So they look like drugged out and drained husks that shift their feet at everything. You are not authorized to be anywhere unless you're on the guest list.

    If affirmative tranny backdoor action is what makes people feel safe then that's their prerogative. My confusion is the squares stare at things that have any edge or curve to it as if it was suppose to fit in their narrative anyways. That wasn't the point.

    However also, subverting expectations isn't art anymore than a bucket of paint is a masterpiece.

    As the swan song to this generation of console players, TLOU2 checks all of the boxes needed for a game of that sort.

    The swan didn't sing out of grace, it sung out of spite.

    I wonder what Nintendo is up to?

    Seriously, I hate this for you but....I don't care. You should really find yourself someone different to better appreciate your anger.

    You deserve someone who can really be offended.

    I did and it was your man crush Neil who blocked me after sending him this meme:

    The only reason you haven't blocked me like you did Norzan is because it would make you look like a cowardly bitch and prove me right about you.

    I mean...



    Most tend to put the game in a 6/10 region which sounds fair enough as well. Graphics and gameplay are great but dropped the ball on writing. And let's face it, nobody bought TLOU2 thinking they'd get MGSV-level gameplay, they bought it for the writing.

    So, which is it? Do sales matter or not? Because you've invested a lot of posts in saying that it's not selling good and also saying that even if it sells a lot it doesn't matter because the game is crap?

    That is a big cope you are doing with what Aurelius put up in his post to counter your argument.

    Anyway...

    I liked the game but I will say it creates a lot of new groups that are relatively meaningless. The Washington Liberation Front just exists to give Ellie a huge number of people to murder and Abby isn't even friends with them. So it's all just pointless busy work.

    If I were rewriting the game, I'd have Ellie kill Abby in the end of the game only to have Jackson burned to the ground in retribution for the hundreds of soldiers Ellie's killed.

    Says the butthurt twat that came here and started to defend the game with claims that all negative reviews were "bullshit" in the very first post of this thread. Apparently it does need defending if you instantly start defending the second you find any resistance.

    I know he won't respond since he blocked me, but the hipocrisy of this guy is just too damn funny.

    Todd Howard is laughing his ass to the bank anytime you say Fallout 4 is shit. See how fucking retarded this non-argument is?

    If anything, looking at its sales, it looks kind of underwhelming for a game this anticipated. I expected more than four millions copies in the first weekend, specially basically it's at the end of this console generation when your userbase is at its highest. 6 millions at least would have made more sense.

    The fastest selling of ultra specific things certainly doesn't help.

    I wouldn't say this is the true reason for its success. People would have been drawn to the game being a sequel to TLoU 1.

    As @Atomic Postman pointed out, any sequel to TLoU 1 would have sold like hot cakes.

    Among casual gamers and mainstream audiences, TLoU 1 is regarded as a masterpiece which everyone should experience and so the game's sequel would reach a larger audience than usual as said gamers & audiences would be drawn in by recognition. Kinda like every hyped up triple-A game in today's market.

    I honestly doubt the controversy has any genuinely lasting impact on raising sales aside from keeping it floating around in the public's consciousness. The sales would have come from brand recognition alone.

    But seriously, why bother making your first post on this a lashing out against the negative reviews if you don't believe the game needs defending and then being passive aggressive towards the responses even if some are merely inflammatory? Wouldn't it be better to move on without lashing out, or address & respond the issues raised like what @Walpknut does?

    Edit: So far, I have more faith in his accounts of the game than with yours. He's describing the game properly.
