I'm seriously considering picking this up, but its a toss-up between this, Bioshock Infinite, or that new Deadpool game coming out later this month (what can I say, its freaking Deadpool!)

That's why I don't buy games based off of journalist scores anymore.

That's actually something I can agree with.

Review scores are so inflated nowadays that they never reflect how good (or bad) the game actually is.
If I bought games based on their review scores I would have played many awfully boring games and missed out on some absolute classics

I may buy deadpool later on, my bet is it'll drop in price rather fast.

Ya. This game looks disappointing... The presentation is good, but the actual game and story don't seem that great, IMO. It looks like ZombiU mixed with Uncharted 2, and that's not a good mix, considering I didn't really like either of those games. BTW, I actually have both of the games I'm comparing it to.
I paid 20 something dollars expecting Uncharted 2 to be as good as the first one. That game was such a waste, IMO...

ZombiU... no. The vibe I'm getting from reviews is The Last of Us is quality in terms of player agency, rather than blockbuster action, though I'm sure there's some of that.

Also, we're getting one of those this year. And GTA 5. And Watch Dogs. That's without mentioning some of the lesser-known games; stuff like Pikmin 3, Rayman Legends, SMT IV, etc. And that's without stuff we don't know.

Yeah, this is going to be the best year in gaming since 2007.

I was associating it with ZombiU, because both games have the 'digging through backpack' scenario to choose items.

I can agree with this, too. Some of my least favorite games have high scores...still, there is something to be said about near universal praise. I know most of my top 10 all scored high on Metacritic outside of Solatorobo, which is too niche to reach that level of praise anyways (and Mega Man X because it's too old for Metacritics, but I think we all know it's well loved).

This got me curious, so I looked at the metacritic all time list. Last of Us has moved up to 96 in a crowded field, Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 sits at 97, and GTA IV is king at 98.

I admit, I didn't find GTA IV very much fun to play.

Damn... Ya, I regretted buying that game quite a bit. It was on sale on PS+, so I decided to pick it up. That, along with Borderlands, Dead Space 2, Jak & Dexter Collection, Assassin's Creed 1, 2, and Brotherhood, made me feel pretty ripped off.
I spent $200 on games that got praised highly by the media, just to find out they were BS, IMO.
I'm done with Playstation 3 tricking me into buying things. That's why I don't allow it to use AI, and only let it playback bluray and media.

@SCAR392 The PS3 tricked you into buying games? What does the PS3 gave to do with anything in that area, it wom't trick you anymore than Wii U or 360. Also if you didn't like AC 1&2 why did you buy Brotherhood, you already knew you didn't like the series. The fact that you liked Uncharted 1, but thought Uncharted 2 was a waste gives me cancer as well

The fact that this is rated M so I won't be playing it is giving me cancer too, it looks so amazing and it's made by Naughty Dog. I think this one will beat out Watch Dogs and GTA5 for GOTY.

Currently playing: Super Smash Bros: Wii U and Mount & Blade: Warband: Viking Conquest.

*That's why I don't allow it to use AI, and only let it playback bluray and media.

I use my PS3 for the exact same reason, which is why i still even have it.:p I've never played any of the Jack & Dexter games(The first looks alright), but i found Ratchet and Clank to be a total snore fest, aside from ratchet possibly being one of the worst designed and most unappealing mascots in Videogame history, even ranking below Gex, Bubsy and Aero the Acro-Bat. lol I've played a bit of Dead Space 1 & 2 and i just couldn't really get into either of them, but i partially blame this on having an absolute NintenBoner for pointer based 3rd person titles such as RE4: Wii Edition, Silent Hill:SS Wii ect. where as dead space on the other hand is restricted to dual analog for aiming which i cannot stand for the billionth time.

Meanwhile, Assains creed, boarderlands and brotherhood do not appeal to me whatsoever. Sony and MS exclusives just aren't my cup of tea which is why i'd get a PS4 soley for 3rd party support, capcom being the number 1 reason. :p that's if i were to even get a PS4 of course. It's going to take a Resident Evil reboot to get me interested haha.

But yeah, have you tried Bioshock Infinite + Move controls yet? I plan on picking that one up. I also really need to get on Contra Hardcorps and RE6 even though it looks like a bloated, mindless, hollywoodized quick time event extravaganza. it's the only 'main' RE i haven't played, but it's tradition regardless of the compelte suckage. It's also the only RE sequal that i didn't purchase on day one. But can you blame me?lol Calling it RE should be a crime. I'm more interested in watching the cutscenes than anything else.

Weirdly enough, it's different on Metacritic's sister site, gamerankings. Mario Galaxy 1 is the highest rated game ever, and Mario Galaxy 2 sits above GTA IV. I find it interesting.

Somewhat compelling story and fun Multiplayer let down by the series taking its self too seriously and focusing on Oscar worthy gameplay instead of being fun in the long run as well. Probably my least favorite of the rockstar games thus far. San Andreas is so much more open and fun, and Red Dead is much better at storytelling.

I mainly just bought the games, because they were on sale. I heard lots of people liked them, so I bought them with no experience. I ended up not playing a single one, except Dead Space 2 for the most part.
I really liked Dead Space 1, but the second not so much.

@Jaz007
I bought alot of these games as the ultimate bundles or whatever.

I haven't been buying games for my PS3, because all the games are the same to me. IMO, All the PS3 has is sequels that don't live up to the original.
The same goes for Xbox, except I sold my 360 before right before Judgement and Halo 4 came out. I still have all the games I had on my account digitally, so getting them back isn't a problem.
I almost bought Move controllers, but I had already beaten all the games that used them with a regular controller. I even bought Socom 4, and thought the game was lacking...
I think PS3 is a cool device, but the way Sony handles their games and features makes me not really want to play it. I think they should have done alot of what they did just in this last year right from the start.
That's the problem with putting a strong machine on the market, and not having anyway to use it. Really in a way, the end of the PS3 life cycle explains alot of how Wii U will handle things when it picks up, I think.

The PS3 has functionality, but the way it handles that functionality is a different story. Nintendo probably has more practical uses and ideas than Sony would have on an identical machine.
