So I’m in The Last of Us. This is the game that’s getting all of the “Citizen Kane” awards from folks and I’m struck by how linear the storyline is. Maybe that’s the price to pay for this sort of thing… but, so far, it’s like hearing that they made a Citizen Kane Video Game, then made all of the action scenes interactive between walking scenes with dialog exposition. That’s not what made Citizen Kane Citizen Kane, guys.
Which is not to say it’s a *BAD* game. It’s an awesome game. The main thing that I want to say about it so far is that it’s the first zombie movie where I haven’t yet said “WHY IN THE SAM HILL ARE YOU DOING THAT???” at one (or both) of the protagonists. That achievement alone is worth something.
But, of course, today I have to be not playing something. Sigh.
So… what are you playing?
