I see. That looks pretty bad, I'll admit. Even as someone who could give a rat's ass about either Joel or Ellie as characters, this whole thing just seems terrible. Is that person who's beating the shit out of Ellie in the video actually a succubus, or just a man that thinks he's a succubus? If it's the latter, then that's pretty dumb and seems quite awkward to shove into a game like this. I also thought Joel was already going to be dead in this game, (whether of old age or some disease, or whatever) and that his presence was just going to be a delusion of Ellie's making with him regularly "talking" to her inside her own head. But I guess he's just still alive then? And proceeds to get killed at some point by some roided up trans person? Not sure who thought that was a good idea, but whatever. Even what I just mentioned of a Joel who's already dead from some nondescript event prior to the start of the game would've been way better than that. I'll say that Ellie and Joel getting killed doesn't really bother me that much, or at all really, (mostly since Joel was just a deranged mad dog with a father/daughter complex in the first game and Ellie was just an annoying punk kid and I personally thought everyone deserved to die at the end of the first game, mostly for Joel being a pathetically motivated and ruthless homicidal lunatic, the fireflies for being a pack of retards, and Ellie for simply being Ellie), but the way they get killed off here seems really lazy and poorly thought out. It's an interesting approach to take nonetheless at least, in regards to the role reversal of swapping who you play as between Ellie and whatever his/her face is. It's a gimmick that fits well with what seems to be the general theme of cycles of revenge and how a lust for vengeance inevitably comes back to destroy everyone in the end. Near as I can tell though, it seems everybody's just losing their minds over this simply because their favorite characters got killed off, which is a pretty weak reason to dislike something.
Also, the comments on that video are so depressing. Braindead morons who may as well be empty bots spouting godawful meme humor at each other. How perfectly fitting of the pitiful state of things these days. It's a dumb meme video, but that sort of garbage in the comments has been pretty much everywhere for a long time now and it always reminds me whenever I see it that whatever value the internet once held is now dead and gone forever and that cyberspace is literally no different than meatspace. >>49623
>Oh boy sure there are many angry virgins in here.
I'd say it's more just fatigued dismissal of normalfag melodrama and outright disinterest of a dumb story more than any kind of "anger". Pretty questionable way for you to phrase what you said, though.
>I remember the scene with giraffes in a distance.
Yes, I can recall that being a nice moment. The more quiet sections, which usually preceded the action segments, where you could just walk around and how Joel/Ellie would make their own various comments on the scenery were definitely some of my favorite parts of that game, versus the fairly mediocre gunplay and lame survival/crafting mechanics.
