That's something I thought was intentional/the point though... there's two sides to every story and when you're only seeing it from one point of view, then you'll always consider yourself the hero. It's not until we see it from a second angle that we realise maybe we're actually the villain. Definitely a very daring/risky direction they've taken it for sure! Can't really say any more without treading into spoiler territory, so enjoy the rest of the game.Not finished yet but in thinking back over the first half of the game my only real major gripe with it is that I feel they've sabotaged Ellie's character and seem to be all about affording more of the humanist material to the other playable character. While it's inkeeping with the plot and how she's feeling, can't help but feel they've taken the core of what the first game was about and pulled back for a view of the bigger picture.. which enhances the world and its complexity but also diminishes what I think most people came to this game expecting. I think they had a lot of opportunity to have Ellie meet new characters (outside the Jackson crew) and wrote themselves into a corner with her and her emotions during her revenge angle.. the further it goes the less you like her (at least this is how I'm feeling) and I'm just hoping they'll wind back around and try to salvage that great foundation she had in the first game. I trust ND I suppose but I'm also nervous they're just going all in on their desires to dismantle fan expectations kick and dump a smug and absurd rEvenGe is Bad The End number on me.
Finished the game a couple of days ago. Amazing game. There were bits in the story that i would have changed the order in which they were presented but overall i liked the story. There were bits in the game where i hated myself for feeling a certain way about a character but i think that was intended by Naughty Dog.
I started a new game + last night. Gonna go for the Plat. Ive got every trophy except for the Maximum upgrades. Wish me luck!
Glad you both enjoyed it! Tempted to go for the Platinum myself after I've now slowly recovered from the story lol.finished it yesterday.. such a great game.. as good as the first one probably, which is one my favorites!
Thought I was doing pretty good at finding trading cards on my first playthrough, then once I got to the end and checked the stats I realised I'd missed soooo many lol.Congratz man! I’m one Trading Card away from Platinum. Somehow I missed it in the Hillcrest chapter. So next weekend when am off work.
Tho’ am very tempted to do another run and make it very difficult, as in turn off aim crosshairs, health bar, listen mode etc.
congrats.. I was halfway through my new game plus and my PS4 crashed and wouldn’t restart (first time ever) and guess what I didn’t have my saves in the cloud after initialising the console. I’ll start again after ghost of tsushima
