Agreed. Their main focus was the story and it has been done to death. The characters are what drew me to the game not the gameplay itself.

What drew me in was the beginning of the game. Playing through the outbreak from the daughter's perspective, with Naughty-Dog-tech shadows all over the walls, then leaving the home into the bigger world that's going through a SHTF scenario.

That was so well done...

It seems you missed the part where that post was a mockery.

It's good to see that kind of contrast and color depth. Can't wait to play this on PS4

Even though I don't notice and/or retain things like this as much as others, I do have to admit this is impressive and I feel better about staying on board with this.

Maybe it's just me but while the environment looks better in the PS4 version, the girl looks better to me in the PS3 version. I can see the obvious technical advances in the PS4 girl but it's making her look more fake to me.

Ya know... I gotta admit after looking at it a bit closer I can see that.

Agreed. They played the character well even if you saw her death coming a mile away...(aka they let you play as a character that looks nothing like the chick in the GAME COVER and some dude that looks like a bearded Drake so yeah she gon die) I think it was one of the most touching moments in video game history next to a suicidal Isabeu or Persona waifus. :P

That's an entirely different environment. I mean, they're both snowy coniferous forests, but the geological layout is completely different. Are they redoing the entire game to add more scenic vistas?
