I hope that they make a sequel, and with the name characters two. I got too attached to them to have 2 new characters if they have a sequel. The ending was brilliant though. It was realistic, and not like a hollywood ending of "we saved the world". I liked the cliff hanger on their story. Since it was just a lot sweeter to have that. Wondering what would happened next.

They have already said they wont be making a sequel with those characters, they said they will probably explore that world some more but with newer characters. I bought a second hand PS3 just to play this game, totally worth it.

Though it could be possible that they could carry on with Joel and Ellie. I'm too attached to them, to introduce new characters. But I understand they have a lot of possibilities. Such as a prequel with Joel and Tommy. Their story after Sarah died. That would be a good story, considering they weren't talking etc.

I think they might do the prequel with Joel and Tommy as a DLC. I can see that happening. Since it's the same game. If they want to introduce new Characters, they definitely have to do it in the sequel. They can't introduce new Characters to play in the DLC. I reckon it has to be Joel, since the first game is revolved around him. The next game, It would be more acceptable to introduce new characters.

haha I knew some one who bought a PS3 just for it too. He sold it after. I've also recommended to some people to just buy a PS3 for it. It's definitely is one of the best games story wise. Gameplay was great, but the story had me hooked, and I watched every single cut scene. I don't normally do that with games these days. Since most of the stories are just OTT. This was just real. The story behind it may have been fantasy, but the characters and the relationships were just spot on. Just that opening level was amazing. I had goosebumps and could have cried haha

When his daughter died I had only been playing about 5 bloody minutes and I was instantly hooked, cried like a bitch, seriously upsetting, was those dying noises she made but yeah those cutscenes instead of loading times made the game run smooth and feel like I was playing the part of a character in a movie.

Yeah, it was very close to a film than a game for me. I mean to open up a game like that. It was brilliant, definitely feels there. I've never had a game give me Goosebumps like that. I read the reviews and people said it was awesome. I didn't have a high expectation for it, story wise. I thought people just loved the gameplay. Even the end, when he starts calling Ellie "Baby Girl" like he did with Sarah. It showed why this man didn't want her to die. He built a daughter like relationship with her. And she reminded him of Sarah too. Genius who ever wrote it.

I think peoples total attachment too them aswell was probably because they used the actors to act out every single cutscene then used the amazing graphics of this game to capture emotion in the face, just made it that much more real for me. Also that scene with the Giraffe, where ellie is totally amazed, kind of a soft moment there too.

Yeah that was really cool with Giraffe. I was even amazed, seeing Giraffes in a broken down overgrown city.

the AI in this game was awful. you could walk right in front of people undetected as long as you're crouched. they're also deaf, as you could strangle someone and their buddy 5 feet away is none the wiser.

other than the odd moment when an npc should have heard or seen me, the AI is stellar. calling it awful is quite the stretch.

I never understood exactly why clickers killed you instantly but you could fight off runners easily, could someone explain please?

The best explanation for things like this are the one's you come up with yourself. The game explains that Clickers are at a far more advanced stage of infection than runners or stackers. I think the more infected you become, the stronger physically you become. And that's why you need a melee weapon to fight Clickers up close. So I just assume that Clickers are strong enough to just bowl over Joel physically.

If you went and looked up the types of infected in the game, it gives a pretty good explanation of each type on their Wikia. I understand that's just a collectivity of knowledge from players, but it makes a lot more sense then a fluke like "The virus made them stronger".

Runners cry when they're alone because they're still fighting off the pain of becoming infected. There's a fungus trying to invade their brain, and it erupts from the eye sockets. I'm sure you could imagine how painful that is. Their eyesight is still intact, that's why they can see you. Also, the zombies that lay Stagnant and don't attack unless "provoked" is actually just people who are startled by you making a loud noise. I'm sure if u were sitting there in the dark and heard a gun shot, you'd be freaked out too.

As explained in the game a couple of times, clickers are people who've been infected for a pretty long time. If you consider the fact that you play the game *possible spoiler ahead* 20 years later after the outbreak *end spoiler*, that makes perfect sense. These infected are to the point where they've lost their humanity, or sense of pain. Instead they've formed a crude version of echolocation. The fungus has altered their thought pattern to the point where they only need to infect others, and feed themselves. So they don't exactly hold back when attacking a non-infected, I'm sure you've seen their arms flailing when they become enraged.. and no ones gonna get outta that death grip without a tool like a shiv. This is why Joel has to improve himself in being a "Shiv Master" in order to protect himself from clickers grasps.

TL;DR, Clickers have no shame or pain, so you're not getting away from them too easily.

Pretty much! There seems to be a good few theories going around but this one sounds quite good

Well its the only explanation that I can really empathize with, because I could probably put myself in any infected's shoes. But the other ones don't really offer any good explanation for anything, really.

Yeah, like you said, its better than people coming up with the idea that The virus made them stronger"

Yeah, the way I see it, as the virus progresses... the less they actually hold themselves back. If you'd think about lifting a 500 lb weight over your head, you'd say "No, that'd hurt and probably kill me if I gave out from under it."

If you took out the doubts and the pain, chances are anyone could do that.

So, on the flipside, you could say the reason why runners don't bite you instantly is because of the humanity they have left, whether its fear or mercy

Well yeah, I know i'm asking you to imagine a lot of things.... But LETS SAY You became infected, you know you're hungry, you see another person, and i'm saying you are STARVING, you haven't eaten in at least 2 weeks since you've been infected. So this is probably gonna be your only chance in a long time to eat, and you have to contend for this food along side other infected... you're gonna go hard at them. But you're not fully inhibited by the virus just yet.. You recognize that is a fellow human being you're attacking, and you're still LARGELY in pain from the fungus trying to bust open your eyes from inside your brain. But alas, you have no choice but to soldier through the pain as best as you can to get your meal.

That's mostly speculation, but it's the best I can understand a runners situation

Ouch, kinda makes you feel bad for them. This game is a lot more psychological then I thought

Like I said, it's mostly speculation, and if you boiled down a gazelles situation with a cheetah, you'd probably feel sorry for a cheetah too. That's just how things go in nature. Survival of the fittest on both ends.

But we don't need to turn this into an ecology lesson.
