Like it's reasonably fun (a few of the stealth sections were so annoying) but I don't get the amount of praise

Like according to the Guinness Book of World Records it is the most praised and awarded game of all time

Am I missing something?

Sounds like you're missing about 90% of the game if you only been playing an hour dude

Bad comparison because Breaking Bad starts incredibly wild.

It was hyped to fucking hell because it was cinematic zombie game when the walking dead was at it's peak.

It's an okay game, your typical overly cinematic Sony/Naughty Dog fair.

People really need to learn how to set their expectations appropriately and not let hype effect their enjoyment.

The Last of Us is the greatest game from that entire generation, but if you go into it thinking "Wow I'm going to play the greatest game from that entire generation", you're just setting yourself up for disappointment. Just go into anything highly praised with at most thinking "this will probably be good, but I'm sure people overrated it."

Oh and also that game is like 5 times better on the harder difficulty settings. The hardest is too much for a first time through, but the next one is perfect. Makes things way more tense and makes scrounging for supplies a bigger deal.

I played about 5 hours and it basically boils down to being a decent story, below average gameplay, good characters. People definitely overhype this game. It's no God of War.

Gameplay wise it's average but the story and characters are way above average.

Personally I think it was a bit overrated due to the whole 'Can you believe this narrative is in a video game?!' thing.

I felt exactly like you do. I think all the praise is due to the story and characterizations. From a gameplay perspective its not revolutionary and rather shallow but as a work of fiction its really good. Looks great and plays smoothly as well.

Should've played on Hard imo, really makes you feel like a badass when you survive crazy stuff.

And makes the game a lot scarier and intense. Makes the crafting / scavenging even more satisfying.

But good work, keep it up.

Yeah God bless. How far are you?

Now I'm more rustled that you aren't playing on Hard because you would've probably felt this way starting all the way back when you are tasked with escorting Ellie out of the city.

Btw I recently played and beat it for the first time (like a month ago) and it's in my top ten, maybe top five, games of all time

I found the game really tedious and annoying until the chapters posted in #49.

I think just because the first area is about 90% human enemies and they're just not as entertaining.
