I think they nailed it (Fan Creations)

(For example, spores were always a problem logically.)

Spores never made sense, and they never mattered for the gameplay (although I can imagine a world in which it had some sort of gas mask management elements or something). But goddamn did they ever set the mood and just look atmospheric and fantastic. I’m also not sure how you replicate Dina finding out about Ellie’s immunity because of her lack of gas mask, but I’m sure smart writers can figure that out fairly easily.

All that said, ditching them for the show was probably a good decision and it’s not like the transmission method is key to the story being told, so who cares really (except a bunch of weirdos on the internet, apparently—I saw a bunch of terrible reactions to that news and it really baffled me).
