I have not EXPERIENCED Last of Us II, but I have SEEN it via my husband playing it, and that’s more than enough to form an opinion on it right? Right…? Honestly, I liked it. I did not like the gratuitous violence and the pointless deaths of sympathic characters but I appreciated the story it was trying to tell.
I also appreciate that it included LGBT characters (and they all live.) I gather people are trying to review-bomb the game based on that and that makes me so sad. This on the other hand makes me so happy:
I also love that it’s one of the most accessible games ever by all accounts. That’s something I have the privilege of never really thinking much about until now.
I think those two things alone justify its existence and hopefully a good place in videogame history.
