I love Uncharted 2 & 4 and TLOU.
TLOU 2 is probably the most divisive game (in my own head) I've ever played. One one hand its sense of place is astonishing. I really felt like I was in post zombie apocalypse Seattle. The graphics team and level designers are on a whole other level. On the other hand its nihilistic revenge story was too 2000 and late for me. I really really wish I had liked it more. I generally love fucked up sad shit but the characters just couldn't draw me in. I've even read about the creators intentions and how he watched a hanging as a young child and wanted to take revenge. That is awesome!
The epilogue had some amazing gameplay but by that point I just couldn't understand Ellie's actions anymore.
Anyways, this guy is smarter than me https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GB20A8CitRU and sums up how I feel. Wish I had his job.
