    Tag me once you have finished the game and read this piece because I would like to pick it apart but wouldn't want your own experience of the game to be skewed by me.
    It really feels like I've had a rich emotional life when I see some comments on the mentality of people and what they should and shouldn't feel

    But that's all I'll say about the article for now.

    Will do, shot. Did you check out the review as well? That one I linked was just an opinion piece. Same author.

    The problem I have with the Vice piece is that he is trying to understand motives based on his real world understanding of the world. In the world of TLoU however all these characters, especially the younger ones like Ellie, have only ever know death, murder, hate, suffering etc etc. So things like vengeance and murder are far more normalized and often necessary. For them to understand things like forgiveness is a much more difficult task.

    Just look at Ellie in the first game. Mom dies before she even knows her, dad is MIA, friends recruited into Fireflies and are killed, infected everywhere, best friend gets infected while she’s the only person immune on the planet, given to Joel who is a dodgy smuggler, on the journey it’s hunters and cannibals and the brothers and etc etc etc.

    We are not talking about a normal average person here.

    I did, not a site I frequent so I have to ask, do they ever give games a metric score?

    Also she was born post infection. First game is set 20 years after the outbreak I think

    I'm not sure, but I don't think they do. I like listening to the Vice Waypoint podcast which usually has interesting chats between some of the Vice writers, that's how I came across the review at first. I really want to get around to reading the thing now, lol!
