Tell GR: Is The Last of Us Getting Overhyped?
Posted on Friday, February 17 @ 15:06:33 Eastern by Nicholas TanRight now, we're susceptible to being blindsighted by the prospect of an original IP like Naughty Dog's The Last of Us, because last year's catalog was dominated by sequels. Awesome sequels, but sequels nonetheless. And trust me, video game editors almost automatically love new IPs just to get us out of the rut of annualized franchises.
But perhaps an original IP isn't as original as we might imagine it might be. I know full well not to get on the hype train until I've seen actual gameplay footage or, better yet, hands-on time with a game. I'm still excited about the title, but seeing does not equal experiencing. That said, the same goes for the below image which, though brutally honest about the situation, is based on seeing screenshots and trailers.
So, is The Last of Us being overhyped? How original is it really?
