Glad it's not just me who was pissed off with it.

It kind of hinders it. Can't quite explain it, but it's possibly down to the slow turning, or sometimes I could have jumped through an open window, but instead of that you mash the buttons and she just stands there until she gets killed. Probably because you're not at quite the right angled for the command to happen, but like I've seen you say, it does make it quite clunky for one of the biggest releases in modern times.

I just switched it on, first go and I did the bit that pissed me off yesterday.

I don't have a massive issue with the controls and fighting system as its supposed to be realistic and not auto lock and instant healing like a lot of fps is, it just means you have to approach stuff differently. I'm really enjoying the story. Interested to see what all the controversy is about when I finish.

I hate the controls and movement on it, the button presses seem delayed and sometimes they just don't register. Feels like a really clunky game.

There is no controversy. I expected there to be but their isn't, it's a really good story. It's just self entitled cunts being cunts for the sake of being cunts. Hurrr durrr she has muscles.

Well, just finished it. Loved it. So good. Need a bit of time to process it all but what a story.

Ok some thoughts, spoilers obv
The thing I liked was that because of her need for revenge she lost her family, many of her friends and even her ability to play guitar, her last link to Joel, was gone.

I kind of wanted more of the story strand about Ellie being immune and possibly finding a cure.

I did think it was a touch heavy handed with the diversity and strong woman stuff. Didn't spoil the experience in any way but I can see why there's some debate. I don't have an issue with that stuff in general but it was just a little bit unsubtle. I saw someone complaining about the violence against women in the game. Well if your going to have two female leads in a violent post apocalypse game there is going to be violence isn't there. There was lots of violence against men too. (fore, Joel) And if women are equal then they can get fucked up horribly the same way men can, no? Can't have it both ways.

Overall though I absolutely loved it. Tense, engaging, emotional. Gonna play again after Ghosts of Tsushima which comes out this week.

Nah the time line skips about a bit and I got confused.

Also I smashed through it most of yesterday and the day before.

I've been watching some reviews and whatnot and I do get some of the complaints but they're not enough to turn me off the game.

The story wasn't really grabbing me so far, but last night I started playing another character, and it really kicked in. Wanted to keep playing, but I had to go to bed

Actually, the pennies just dropped about the ending as well. Bollocks. Wish I hadn't read it now.

I read the spoiler about the end of the game before it was released. And tonight I realized who in the game is going to do it.

Have you finished it? don't read this if you haven't.
The spoiler that Abbie kills Ellie was a load of bollocks which was a pleasent surprise, the bit after the Abbie and Ellie showdown is where the game probably should of ended for me. Think it went on for too long after that.

No, still got quite a bit to do I reckon. 25 Hours in, but I check every draw. Some people have done it in 40 hours. I'll probably be the same.

Just...
Got Amy off Haven. That all got a bit out of hand. Now about to go into the theatre.

You can see how "An eye for an eye" situations can come about after playing this.
