    Finished up The Last Of Us 2 last weekend and I loved every min of the game . That said I did start a New Game Plus but its just grim so I put it down after a few hours.

    I think if the world was not so messed up right now I would be fine with a second playthrough and I will play it thru again just after maybe letting it sit for a month or so.

    I don't get the hate for this game at all its a masterpiece from start to finish.

    Very much agree here. The game is fucking beautiful, amazing storyline. I can only guess the hate is driven by a white male-dominated base in video games that have too much of voice and reach on the interwebs.

    And I wish I could move through the game quicker (no spoilers please!), but between kids and work I'm moving at a snail's place. Oh, also given the reason you've provided above - hard agree, given the world we're in it just makes it that much more dour to pick up when I'm looking to get away from bad news lol. Oh, it also doesn't help my anxiety at all and that was before the pandemic (this is the only game - the 1st one too - that gets my anxiety up to a level that I ask myself why put myself through it) lol.

    Can't wait for the HBO series. I'd love to have someone like Damon Lindelof get a try at it, since I could see this be a great comparison to The Leftovers meets The Walking Dead, while letting someone have their own take on it (ala Lindelof's adaptation of Watchmen). Plus I would assume you'll have Halley Gross working on it, and of course Druckman. Can't wait.

    Lol would never spoil anything , I hate the age of spoilers and stayed away from internet as much as I could until I beat it ( took me 15 days roughly ) 10 years ago I would have gotten thru it in 3-4 days.

    Also again with everything going on I found it more fun to play in 1-2 hour sessions  except for one 6 hour marathon I did on a Saturday.

    I am on the same boat. Between child and other stuff I only get little game time but the experience so far has been great. Though I will probably not replay it, I rarely do, mostly just rpgs.

    Almost time to pick up Ghost of Tsushima

    I managed to play through every level of Super Mario 2 yesterday and beat it with no warps for the first time ever!  Did the same thing this year with Mario 1 and Mario 3 as well-- although I didn't literally play EVERY stage in Mario 3, I did manage to beat the game through all 8 worlds without using the Warp Zone.  3 Bucket list items checked off! =)

    I absolutely LOVED TLOU2!  Brilliant fn game!
    I've read the hate and have my option on why, but that also contains a ton of spoilers!
    So, I'll wait.

    It's really good!  I'm maybe 10 hours in and I barely opened the map.
    I was doing really good, getting a lot of legend, lot's of new techniques...all kinds of fun stuff....then I took a day off.
    The next time I played it, I immediately wandered into a Mongel territory.  Just two days prior, they'd all be dead, but they f'd me up good!
    My timing was waaaay off.
    Such a fun game!

    I was wondering if there are any Nintendo Switch players here and what would be their recommendations (besides animal crossing). Do not have anymore time to play ps4 or on pc, but should be able to get some time here and there on the switch. 

    Any recommendations appreciated, can be porta from other platforms too.

    A hack of Nintendo resulting in 2TB of information being stolen is dripping out now.

    - Early builds of games
    - demo versions of games
    - Artwork
    - Source code to games
    - uncompressed vocal takes and music
    - Unused sprites from games (several iterations of Yoshi from Super Mario World etc)
    - Text documents
    - cut 3D model of Luigi from Super Mario 64

    Etc.

    I think people would say the usual Nintendo hard hitters: 

    Mario Kart 8 (have it on Wii-U -- best Mario Kart game released)
    Super Mario Odyssey
    Zelda: Breath of the Wild
    Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze (if you like 2D plattformers)

    I am close to finishing Zelda.

    in terms of platformers I was thinking either Mario or the Crash Bandicoot trilogy (which is also cheaper).

    I was also wondering about Skyrim potentially.

    My sister was in for the first time since December due to Covid. She has respiratory issues so her, my father, and me couldn't really do much. So she and I beat Super Mario 1, 3, and World. She's come a long way since we were kids. Remember the kids that would physically move their hands when they were jumping over a pit in Mario? That's her. But she's gotten better, even beat a few boards. I let her beat Bowser at the end of each game, though she needed save-states to do it. To her credit, she refused to use the cheesy Mario 3 glitch where you don't take damage if you're small or ducking and he jumps on you...despite me suggesting it after she died a few times.

    Just finished Breath of the Wild. Was a fun game, enjoyed it a lot, but I do not agree with all the hype and positive responses it received upon arrival. Everyone (I read) wrote what masterpiece it is etc. but I just dont see it. I can see quite a few flaws (uneven difficulty, underwhelming final boss and ending). Still, I enjoyed it a lot, it had this something magical in it and am waiting for the sequel.
