You could make an oddly real assertion that if it isn't leaked by now it probably isn't real, but I'd like to think there are at least a couple surprises somewhere.

Yeah I just pretend nothing happened after season 2 (and that large parts of season 2 didn't happen) because I know if they keep making them they won't be able to resist killing Clem and gently caress that, Lee wouldn't let that poo poo happen and neither will I

The objectively correct opinion. The series in general seems to have this really weird problem with telling the exact same story over and over and loving over again. I think it's basically impossible to care about anything that happens in it unless there's a possibility of happy ending and the character's struggles might end up actually meaning something, and since the series is either unwilling or unable to offer that you just have to decide when the series is over for you. Don't get me wrong, I would have loved a Season 3 where Clem raises AJ as society slowly rebuilds, but clearly that's not the kind of story that the Walking Dead universe is interested in telling.

TLoU is one of the most overhyped games ever, along with bioshock infinite.

If you're only interested in gameplay mechanics then it's "A Good Game" but as a narrative experience it's at least the best of its generation.

Comparing TLoU to Bioshock Infinite is a loving travesty.

(because TLoU is easily in the top games ever while BI is pretty poo poo, hilarious person who was going to make the obvious troll answer to that.)

The characters aren't very likable, the gameplay absolutely destroys the narrative instead of working with it and the relationship between Joel and Ellie is extremely tired. The whole plot was pretty 'safe'.

No, but I don't find them very interesting, either, and not being likable makes it harder to care about their struggles.

YMMV but I found Joel and Ellie's relationship compelling. And I don't know how anyone could find them unlikable. And the game's final act was about as unsafe as big budget US of A vidyagames get.

Uncharted's: The Walking Dead (Now With 2.5X More Grey Morality), best narrative experience of its generation.

I'm just being a dick. I didn't like it but it's obvious plenty of people do.

Lisa the Painful is basically the same plot as The Last of Us but told in an infinitely more compelling way.

I can take or leave Ellie, whom I mostly found annoying, but Joel is probably the worst person in the game other than the pedophile cannibal dude.

Yeah, people point out that Joel is bad as if they’ve found some great unnoticed flaw in the game. The entire point of it is that Joel isn’t a good person.

That's not really what TLOU is getting across, either. It's more like "desperate times cause everybody to do some pretty hosed up poo poo to preserve whatever shred of normalcy they have left."
