    Last game I played on my PS3 before I sold it (and one of my 360s) to get my XO. And what a way to go out! This game is a masterpiece. If you have a PS3 and don’t have this game you have wasted your PS3. Its that…damn….good.

    Well deserved. It couldn’t have gone to a better game.

    It’s not a masterpiece. By a mile. Sure it has great story but gameplay is lacking and AI is broken. Only 3 types of zombies for the entire expeirence and broken stealth mechanics.

    @Erthazus Have you played on survival mode? I was saying the same thing until I started this mode. Can’t advance from the metro part.

    Excellent game, definitely a masterpiece of a game.
    6 million sales in 9 months is excellent for a game like this.

    i loved this game glad it got all those awards couldn’t happened to a better game if i didn’t buy it on the ps3 i would’ve bought it for the ps4 if they had brought it out. The main story was great and the left behind could’ve been a little better but overall it was just fantastic.

    @diego-rbb-93 and yeah. The Last Of Us is definitely is worth buying. I just don’t think that the game is fantastic in every way because it has some serious issues with gameplay and AI.
    Game was even delayed in the past to fix some bugs and the result is still not the best one.

    Yeah, Storywise it’s fantastic. No argue here.

    @mightyhokie I’m curious, if you have that much regard for the game, why switch console brands? Chances are Sony have similar games in the pipeline. UC4 already announced.

    @Erthazus Well… Despite being considering after years the PC rage of the forum… That doesnt negate that you have a real consideration for those game´s consoles. I apreciate the answer.

    @Erthazus totally agree with you Erth. Storywise its great, although I found the AI to be lacking and the gameplay was incredibly repetitive, plus the Stealth mechanics weren’t great.

    But definitely worth a play through, by anyone who considers themselves a gamer.
