The Last of Us Part 2 *Vague Spoilers* (Gaming)

I read all the spoilers during the leak last month. I know generally what happens.

I’m still in the first half of the game (Day 3).

It’s story is working for me. It’s sort of doing the Spec Ops/Bioshock thing, but I think it’s much more effective, if only because this game is actually fun to play. The violence of the game is cathartic in a really fucked up way. And the revenge plot helps—I want to kill the bastards that killed Joel as much as Ellie does. In Bioshock or Spec Ops, I was just doing what the game told me to do, I didn’t have any personal stake in what was happening. In this, Ellie’s motivations are also my motivations. The self reflection the game (I assume) is going to ask of me is much more powerful because of that.
