It's really sad how bad the gamming community wants the TLOU2 to fail. It's one of the highest rated games on metacritic yet people have convinced themselves all these reviews are paid because obviously why would someone like a game they don't....despite them playing the game and they did not. I really don't understand the mental gymnastics people jump through to justify their own hatred of a game they didn't wanna like anyway
Just like with the first game, if someone manages to enjoy it despite its problems is fine by me, but claiming the title is flawless and only deserves 10/10, then your opinion doesn't have my attention anymore.
Though i find it funny that this is the game that has managed to break both notorious biased gaming journalists like Jason Schreier and even ResetEra
“How do people go through mental gymnastics to not like a game???”
People don’t like naughty dog, and thus don’t want to support them. It’s not that hard to grasp
review bombing it is dumb, but that’s not the same crowd criticizing the company itself for valid reasons.
it’s funny tho how people praised jason for his EA article on crunch because societally were programmed to hate EA, but he does the same for Naughty Dog and suddenly it’s some controversy and plot to tear down poor TLOU2.
I see more people happily joining in tearing down ND then defending them so yeah.
Absolutely not defending crunch btw and not defending ND I just think it's funny gamers wanna start boycotting shit now when it's ND on the chopping block because now they're morally justified in not buying a game they walready disliked due to "leaks" and get the moral high ground on those that still are getting it.
I mean what is there to defend outside “well they make good games”? The group hating the games because “ew lgbt representation” or some dumb story shit is not the same. And unless it can be directly proven, I really wish people would stop conflating the two as if it’s truth. Also people boycotted games before this? They didn’t just start doing it because some ND bias. They did it for Star Wars battlefront 2 also.
