    Finally started playing the The Last of Us; a damn good game; still in the first chapter though.

    I have to admit that it has the best game intro that I ever played, I actually felt sad for Joel by the end of the intro.

      JUST YOU WAIT! THAT ENDING… It stuck with me!

  • PrinceHeir

    huh Lost Planet 3 writer?

    Assassins Creed writers who keeps convoluting the series even further?

    and no, GTA V story wasn’t anything special. it’s the presentation that probably impresses the peple, but the series had never had strong story to begin with.

    I hope Niel wins, just because of the shit that is rumored to be going down by those people that haven’t been with the company for long. You know the ones where all these articles keep getting reported one thing then something else. :D
