The Last of Us Part II
The story is a giant middle finger to anyone who played the original game. Let's not beat around the bush and talk about how naughty dog placed so much emphasis on Elise's sexuality. Good for her, but most of us knew this from the first game, it was an amazing revelation back then and the subtly leading up to it really made it an amazing moment. However when it came to last of us 2 it added nothing new for this game outside creating a controversy. The game spends the first two hour reminding how Ellie likes other girls and shows us a ton of intimate moments that adds nothing to the story or
Ellie as a character outside of things we knew from 7 years ago. Then came the biggest middle finger when
Joe, the main character of the first game, gets unceremoniously killed off and turned the game which was known for its story and it's character development into a revenge story and Joe being relegated to your generic parent who kept secret from his kid and eventually die as a result of the secret. It was the character development between Joe and Ellie that made the first game's story so interesting yet the game completely throws it away to tell a generic revenge story.
Hope those woke points you got to guarantee a good review from critic is worth it because the improved graphic is the only other thing this game has to offer.
